Now that Microsoft has recanted and the Xbox One doesn't restrict used games, and won't require a constant online connection, will you forgive...?
still less powerful and more expensive, so NO.
I said this in another thread, but... If I just spent the last month fighting off a robber who was trying to break into my house every night and then the robber one day comes to my front door, arms raised, and says "Whoa! Whoah! Calm down. I'm sorry about the last month, man. I'm not here to rob you. I promise. I just need a glass of water. Mind if I come in?" Wouldn't it be foolish of me to say "yeah, c'mon in"? Microsoft has shown their hand. Not only did it take them a full month to finally back down from this, but they spent years developing it in the first place. I have no respect for so-called "gamers" who instantly forget the last month of Microsoft PR simply because Microsoft removed SOME of its bad policies. Then again, I do live in America, The Land of No Self-Control(tm). And they still haven't reversed some of their policies. TvTvSportsTv is still a major focus of the system. Kinect is still required. Price is still $500. Hardware is still less powerful (due to bloated OSs). And seeing how they'll need to scurry for the next 5 months to completely re-do the firmware, I wouldn't be surprised if we have some rocky software issues for the first several months.
MS are half way, this will be enough for many, but hopefully the rest can muster up enough presser to remove the mandatory Kinect and in turn also cut $100 from the price.
Nooooo, Kinect should be included. So devs will actually put it to good use. And believe it or not. Xbox One has more features then PS4. It can do much more.
My friend say it has the power of the cloud. What ever that means. PS4 day ONE
Lol at the title. The fact that they tried to get us to buy this "used to be" anti consumer box in the first place is bad. Just remember that, they tried to take advantage of everyone's consumer rights.
The way I see it is for them to even have those thoughts (using DRM) and actually going as far as implementing them on their next-gen console is bad enough for me IMO ;) But now with the restrictions gone I gotta say the console does seem a lot more appealing from a game standpoint. ;)
@KingElixir I have no idea how you have been reported for trolling for what you are saying is spot on, Microsoft tried something to see if the competition would follow and it failed, now they are back pedaling because they had another attempt at screwing us gamers and we where having none of it. Now they are saying they " LISTENED " to us and have changed their plan. So that basically means they shat themselves when they realized gamers were outraged at what they had tried to impose and have went in the same direction as Sony. Should of done that from Day one and it would of protected their image.
wow still so many sony trolls on here, go read ps4 articles already GAH! going to preorder mine today :D
Yeah mate I did yesterday lol with forza 5 traded one of my 360s I still think they will have some other sweet news for people just to add a bit more nectar to the honey pot happy belated E3 MS.
It's OFFICAIL , Microsoft Will Drop DRM restrictions ! Remmber : You heard it from Me First !
Has it made it more appealing? Well, definitely has but there are still a few issues. I'm happy consumers stood up and got it their way, at least partially. I might buy one in the future when the price goes down. Keep complaining, I will state the negatives even for my favorite system. If we act like nothing is wrong, nothing will change.
Still not rushing at Next Gen until after release.....but, it has certainly spiked my interest in XB1.... I will get both eventually but might get the XB1 first as the games coming in the first year look better currently IMO....The most exciting thing personally about XB1 is the promise of dedicated servers and a generally better online gaming experience.... Sony has got some big games that will be announced in the next year though...Uncharted 4, God of War, Last of us 2 etc..... Going to be a great few years for gaming period....
Pffftt bahhahahahah...no. They're still greedy shiestey asses. Look at it this way, "Thanks for removing your **** from my *** MS, but I've still been raped so....no, I still dont like you."
This is good for gamers though maybe not so much for devs or publisher but can MS control the damage when it's done so much already. MS screwed up huge with the DRM, PR and their marketing. This shouldn't have happened in the first place. Props for them on fixing it but to me it just comes off as a means to sell more consoles instead doing what is right.
