GR: "Hi Alex! Everyone say hi to Alex. Alex is talking about Xbox One. Yes, that next-generation console with all the confusing policies. So is... like the Xbox One a toaster now or something?"
I'll stay with Greatness
nope. greatness awaits me
As excited I am for the ps4 and disappointed in Microsoft's initial vision for the Xbone, the whole "greatness awaits" thing is really REALLY cringe worthy.
Not in the slightest. Well, at first it made me consider an XBOne, though it wouldn't have been until after I got a PS4. But the more I thought about it, the more it seemed likely that MS could just bring back the policies whenever they chose. That's a worry. So, I'll keep an open mind, but remain wary.
I highly doubt they would bring back the policy and get the same public outcry.
i accually thought of this too. get as many Xbox One's into as many homes as possible, then later down the line, (which will give them time to think of a sly clever way to bring these policy's back without the backlash) force an update (which includes there new policy's) on every owner that wants to connect there XBox One to the internet & play games! This Day One mandatary update, is to delete features & these policy's, am i right? if so, then i think they could definately bring these policy's back at any time!
No, I was getting One anyways
My question to you is: were you more excited for their old policies or their current ones? I know someone getting a One and he is actually disappointed by the change.
Nope, I'll continue with a wait and see policy. The 360 didn't have many games I was interested in playing so I'll see how the XBO works ourt. I don't care (much) about DRM or Kinect 2. What I want is quality games. E3 was a good start - but I need to see lots of exclusives in year 3, 4, 5+ not just year 1 and 2.
Yep, I agree
It changed my mind in terms I may get a One down the road, maybe a year or two instead of never. But I'm giving it time to make sure the hardware isn't massively defective and they don't return their anti consumer policies.
what you said, plus I will wait for some games I really want to play on xb1. Sony exclusives are why I buy the PS4, add the cheaper price tag and superior hardware and it is hard to find a reason to buy xb1 at release.
ya that is where I am at. it went from a never touching one ever, to maybe later down the road. I still have to wait and see A. If MS will keep their word on the policy change. B; If MS actually keep the exclusives this time round. Still they at least took a step in the right direction by changing it.
It's warmed me up to the idea of getting the Xbone in the future but I won't pay more for one than the ps4 because of an accessory that I have no interest in at all.
But you'll have to keep it connected to play.
Have always wanted PS4 as my next gen system. When I found out that PS4 is better hardware and cheaper this was just a bonus and even more reason to get a PS4 over Xbox One. The whole DRM and online check-in thing just put me off Xbox One completely, glad they have changed their status on that stuff but that will not change my mind. PS4 all the way. P.S. not a fanboy as I have a Xbox 360 and not PS3. Saving for PS4 :)
Yes. Used game policy and DRM were deal breakers for me. I was explicit in that regard despite being impressed with the games. Now that those policies have been chucked out, you just try and keep me from Forza 5, TitanFall and Project Spark. I buy my consoles based on games. I don't however compromise on my rights to do with a game whatever I please, including lending it to friends or selling it. Purely based on games, Xbox One has already won me. I hope SONY shows us some of these much talked about exclusives come GamesCon, I'd like to continue being a dual console owner but so far no games on ps front have compelled me.
You gotta have more faith in the PS brand or have you not watched this gen Sony still have one more game (or maybe more) coming out for the PS3.
How many more times? No.
With their previous view of the console, I wasn't going to purchase one. But after they got back on track, I changed my mind because what they removed was the reason I stayed away.... SO yes, in a good way.
No, because i still dont want Kinect!
No, I haven't canceled my PS4 pre-order.
maybe buying a xbone, but it has to compete against the wii u as second console, because one is sure as hell, I will get a ps4 at launch!
No. Xbox One with Kinect comes free with PRISM and I don't like that game.
Nope after years of halo and gears reiterations im done with Xbox. The last of us proves who has the real developers.
So I'm waiting a while on both but I reckon it will be the PS4 first and when the next halo gets announced I will get an Xbox one.
mmmm , no.
Had one on pre order since day one. Didn't affect my decision at all. I was considering a PS4 first for a little while but figured I'd stick with the Xbox first then PS4 later
No because i refuse to pay for Kinect.
Nope sony ps4 for me I did own the 1st console that ms made but for me the controller didnt feel right prolly cos I was mainly on the playstation and for me its about the games screw E3 of what ms has showed but people for get that sony will bring it and they will at gamescon
Hell no... greatness awaits me!
No, they still haven't 180'ed enough for me yet. It also Amazes me how many people are willing to give up their privacy to play a video game.
Im excited to have both for the simple fact I can have the best of both worlds.
