This week on VGS… we go hands on with Xbox One, hopefully answering all of your biggest fears and hopes. Xbox’s Canada’s Craig Flannagan joins the show to discuss why you need to pick up the Xbox One this Holiday season.
Not when DRM was involved.
So this means it is now then
The region locking was worse, it wasn't just the normal pal and ntsc, or region 1 / region 2 / etc stuff it was specific to every damn country. Not released in your zone? too bad, how about importing a xbox one from the usa so you can play your usa import copy? to bad, both the game and console won't work. It was so stupid and I'm surprised more people didn't complain about that.
I complain about it too. For example, I just haven't bought a WiiU because I'm living abroad and coming back in a year, but I was able to buy my second PS3 (I left the first for my GF. It is not only about importing, it is also about people that have crazy jobs!
This was what the ps4 said in the very beginning.
big company tries to f**k with my consumer rights i don't easily forget, and i don't easily forgive. i'll patiently wait a few years, and price drops down to around $200 before i think about purchasing the system. also if they can easily reserve course, they just as easily reserve course back to what it was.
You have the rights not to consume the product as you have stated and with so much defiance, you still plan to purchase the product when the price drops to $200. you're not making any sense,sir.Either you want it or not.
@def Key part there is I said I'll think about it. Its not 100% that I'll buy it even when both of my conditions are met.
Lol, you come to this site and go to an article for the system you say you hate and you waste your time writing a comment. That doesn't make cense. You know you have a better experience in the box you are just listening to other people talk sh##. Microsoft has done far more for games than Sony will ever do. And remembers, Sony also had that DRM on like the box, they just took it out at the last minute along with the camera. Lol. But I know you knew that already .
@red ok if you say so. i'll have you know i've owned both the xbox (which i loved), and a 360(which started gathering dust) because they stopped supporting it with new and varied exclusives for the last 3 years.
An underpowered machine is not for gamers. Multiplats will run better on PS4.
So you are basically saying that Console's Such as Wii, 360 was underpowered compared to the PS3 so all gamer's should just go to PS3? Same with the wii u and Xbox one is underpowered compared to PS4 so gamer's should go to the PS4? That's just being ignorant.
Games are not all about graphics though. The ps2 was less powerful than the cube and xbox, but it had so many good games. Are you saying the ps2 wasn't for gamers?
With an opinion like yours, you should get a pc, not a console.
I don't even play pc games, but pretty sure this is where one of them comes in and says, well all consoles are under power in comparison to to pc gaming rigs, and quickly outdated.....so only gamers play on pc. Love how people are always trying to define a gamer based on what fits their illogical thinking.
Sure, if your gamers like watching TV through their console and paywalls for everything. Oh right, that's nothing to do with gaming.
...and if they like having to put up with advertisements and enjoy dancing in front of a camera. in all fairness though there are some people who do enjoy that so to those people more power to you enjoy next gen gaming if that's how you envision it
yea but having a load of exclusives compared to the competition has more to do with gaming then Sony talking about tv and motion pictures at e3 for half an hour -_-
You don't have more exclusives. You just think you do. Sony just hasn't revealed them all. In fact, what you saw was only a small fraction. You'll see when Gamescom comes around.
Past 3 years Xbox 360 only had Gears, Halo, Forza, and Kinect games. This year alone PS3 has/having God of War, Guacamelee, Ni No Kuni, Sly Cooper, The Last of Us, Gran Turismo 6, Rain, and Beyond 2 Souls. MS abandoned their core fanbase 3 years ago on 360, with that they better have a lot of exclusives right off the bat for Xbox One. Sony has way more studios and has indie support. If you really believe MS will have more exclusives in the long run, then you're blind. MS throws money into NFL/Activision/EA/TV Series ETC, but yet they don't support Bungie or Epic Games which are both now making multi plat games. I bought a 360 right at launch. Had great line up of games/exclusives for the first couple of years. But the past 3 years have been sorry. Games like Alan Wake, Fable III and even State of Decay I can play on my PC. MS went on to support Kinect so much that they forgot about their core fan base. They loved Kinect so much that they're shoving it down consumers throat in the next Xbox One.
And Sony talking about their game console and what it can do with games at its reveal has more to do with gaming than Microsoft talking about TV and sports deals for an hour at their reveal. Besides, everybody knows Sony's track record, as far as bringing a slew of exclusives is concerned. Remind me: what big exclusives are coming to the 360 this year? Which ones has it already had for the year? Meanwhile, on PS3: Ni no Kuni, The Last of Us, Beyond: Two Souls, GT6, and plenty more. If they're giving that type of support to their outgoing system the year its replacement hits the market, what kind of support do you think the incoming console will get? Oh, wait, my bad. I mistook you for someone with common sense. My mistake, won't happen again.
I think you just got the knowledge bomb dropped on you there Eden. It's funny how 360 fans with blinders on keep spouting this 'more exclusives' stuff because of what MS showed at E3, yet seem to forget what has been happening all this time. MS isn't going to suddenly change it's stripes, despite of what was shown at E3, they just want you to buy their product. They spend the most money in advertising and endorsements, and they're good at getting you to blindly buy their products.
"Sony talking about tv and motion pictures at e3 for half an hour" LMFAO!!!! Sony didn't even spend 10 min on TV unlike the ENTIRE HOUR Microsoft spent on all that garbage for their entire REVEAL in May. LOL! Here, I'll even post it for you... XD http://www.youtube.com/watc... Starts @ 57min.. Sorry, but nice try kiddo... "yea but having a load of exclusives compared to the competition" Oh how misinformed you are. XD Sony has 20 FIRST party titles coming in the first year compared to just 15 from MS's mediocre/no name first party developers. lol. And that isn't even including all the "PC/Console exclusives", and indie exclusives PS4 will get over Xbox One! XD http://www.ign.com/articles... http://www.ign.com/articles... Jesus, it's like you people forgot how to do simple math. -___- - 20 exclusives is GREATER than 15 exclusives... - 1 hour spent on gimmicks and TV garbage is GREATER than 10 min... ^^^ Was that too hard for you to understand??? Would you like me to repeat it? -_____-
Well saying you will have alot and what will actually hit store shelves are 2 different things. Sure micro had a lull in big time exclusives for me in the later part of 2010-2011 due to the kinect kiddie crap game focus but there was a few gems too and plenty of great multiplats on the flip side sonys record is not without its blemishes with the start of this gen marred by underwhelming but highly praised early games like Lair, Haze, etc I mean it was quite a while before ps3 hit its stride, then you had all the delays, then all those ps3 exclusive list containing The Agent and The Last Guardian, more games that are still vaporware, now these days although some swear ps3 has all these absolutely amazing games every other month until recently with TLOU there hasn't been anything amazing since Unchartered3, its subjective but I don't see all these amazing exclusives everybody cant wait to play. So I'm not here to bash ps just adding balance on the situation. Both have had their faults and clearly both have made changes to remedy them sony has better PR and micro has shown new commitment to core games with billions invested in games, its was evident at E3. Hell if the past meant that nothing will change or that it always repeats then ps4 would be most expensive, wii u would be lighting up the sales charts and X1 would not have tried to introduce used game drm. Things change, you can't live in the past, what matters to me is whats available now and what works best for me.
@JokesOnYou: The difference between Sony and MS in your example is that Sony's troubles started at the beginning, which happens to all consoles, while MS CHOSE to ignore the core base towards the end of the 360's life. Microsoft actively chose to pursue the casual audience over and above the core audience, Sony didn't choose to have games like Lair or Haze flop. I think that people need to manage your expectations. Both companies spewed out numbers of exclusives but no one knows what kind of games those exclusives are yet. One thing is for sure though. inFamous: Second Son is AWESOME!
@Hicken, "Meanwhile, on PS3: Ni no Kuni, The Last of Us, Beyond: Two Souls, GT6, and plenty more. If they're giving that type of support to their outgoing system the year its replacement hits the market, what kind of support do you think the incoming console will get? Oh, wait, my bad. I mistook you for someone with common sense." Common sense would leave me to believe a topic about the Xbox One should not lead to Sony fans talking about the PS3 exclusives. Common sense would be to ask these individuals why do they persist to come into Xbox related topics to never talk about the Xbox and if they do it's in a negative way all the time? Common sense would be for moderators to get rid of this stealth trolling that seems to resonate far too much on this site. Common sense would also be that we are all gamers and this division in gamers shouldn't even exist in the first place. That is the job of the console makers, not gamers, to continually promote themselves. @DragonKnight, "One thing is for sure though. inFamous: Second Son is AWESOME!" Interesting. You came into a Xbox One topic to promote a PS4 exclusive and not talk about games like Sunset Overdrive, Forza 5 and Ryse. So who does that bedsides Sony fanboys? I think it's time people on here stop with the hidden agendas and start focusing on the topics at hand. So far what they have shown at E3 it looks as though they are committed to giving us games for gamers. What happens in 3 years or 5 years time we don't know but so far things are looking good.
@Mike: Again, you know the drill.
So who brought Sony up first? Don't think it was me. Somebody started talking about how Sony did something that was less about games. Funny how I don't see you responding to them. I wonder why it is that we NEVER see you responding to the ridiculous MS fans?
Beware! This console is for gamers!
Starts off with a Macklemore song. Nope.
BUT I LOVE THEM! NOOOOOO
Haha. That's ok. I still gave the site excellent and yes. I just don't like the music. We all have different tastes. :) Bubbles.
"for gamers.. who likes being watched, who likes lower spec than PS4, who likes watching TV even though TV is pretty much dead since there's teh internet. Gamers who likes to be fooled into buying a console made by people who care about money before consumers. And tahnks for all your feedback, because your money worth more to us, i mean! voice! your voice.. worth more to us, heh.. thank you please buy our crappy, i mean great the futuristic vcr, (..suckers..)" - Sincerely, Microshaft.
It's people like you that screwed the new Xbox up. Other than the 24 hour thing it had some cool features which are useless now. Go troll somewhere else. We get it you hate Xbox enjoy your console. I will be getting both eventually. Fanboys suck.
And gamers who like more exclusives.
They showed 17 exclusives 10 new IP's? @ 0:51
Xbone is for gamers? That's news to me.
Yea,,me too. 'Cause I watched the reveal live,.. and got a totally different message.
you must have missed e3
yea, I watched E3,.. sony stole the show,. and BF4 stole the spotlight,... imho.
With games and variety like Forza 5, Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct, Kinect Sports Rival, Zoo Tycoon, Titanfall, Crimson Dragon, Project Spark, there are games for everyone. So yes, it is a system made for gamers, not just only hardcore gamers, but all type of gamers. Xbox One Day One
that list has driving, zombie game, fighting game, motion control focused game, sim type game, shooter, on rails shooter, game creator, that's the epitome of variety, the only thing missing is rts, but then again, you can make that in project spark
What they talking about ? They say soo much tv tv tv , now they saying this games machine .they trying hard to raid the true very funny ms , you can fool a lot peope , but not the true Games , people will pay for Xbox , I sure Sony keep show us nice games will ps , you stop care about games long time will 360 , stop the bulls.. ok just stop you only make thing long bad and show you lain to everyone , just stop talk and show us games games and games this how you fix your sh... God bless American
Im sure it'll be for gamers, but Sony, despite making mistakes, have proven themselves to me. They had lot of great games and exclusives one at that! Uncharted The Last of Us God of War 3 God of War ascension Ni No Kuna Motorstorm apocalypse Playstation all stars battle royal (too long title) Heavy Rain Ratchet and Clank Ico Shadow of the Colossus Metal Gear Solid 4 I mean, the list goes on and on! And for PS4 they now have Knack Driveclub Killzone shadow fall The order 1886 infamous second son Naughty dog is working on something new The only exclusives I am looking forward to on the xbox one are titanfall and project spark. But they'll also be released for pc, so ...
forgetting something?... http://stupidgamer.com/wp-c...
Of course, but I did say the list goes on and on =P I luv LBP. I had the first one and now have LBP 2 and LBP vita
double post, my bad :P
Well u know what's so funny all you guy fight about Sony and Microsoft and which consoles is the best ,u have no clue why ppl are ordering so many of these new console do u nerds, ill tell u why ps4 is being sold out all the top modders are ordering them like hot cakes , do u geek know how easy its going to be to hack these systems oh my god modders are ordering 3 to 4 ps4 just to take them apart and mod the systems to pirate there software,I know this for a fact year 1 both systems will get hacked software will be free on every torrent site in the first year ,and guess whats going to happen Microsoft will switch back on always on and Sony will get fuc... There to ips never out sold halo and there still in the red Sony will sale consoles but developers will lose support or make always online games to stop the bleeding so its a great time for games is a true statement because all of the free software that will be available, I think we will see both companies lose a lot of money but Ms is in a better position and Sony will be a software company for gamers next Gen there is a big red road for Sony ppl Wow I can't believe they don't have DRM Sony u fucked up
Lay off the Amphetamine man.
No need to run away from the truth. A lot of people used their PS3 and/or 360 for more than games, so Microsoft took that one step further and made their next console heavily multi-media focused, at the expense of having a higher price yet lower overall gaming muscle than the closest competitor. Be proud of what you made, Microsoft. Don't pretend it's all about games now when you spent so much time at the reveal telling everyone it wasn't.
Microsoft forgot the games.
Saying the xbone is for gamers is like saying razors are for hipsters. If xbone is for gamers, M$, then where are YOUR games? All i've seen so far is multiplats, TV, the usual suspects, TV, and a few exclusives that i'm not interested in cuz they're not my cup of tea. Oh, and TV. Show me the games, M$, and I'll show you the money. Until then you're not getting a cent out of me, but Sony sure will.
Who cares just have fun!!!!!!!!
Is a working Kinect still mandatory to power up an XBox One?
Every one seems to forget that ms took the drm out so no mandatory internet connection. Which means not all of the Xbox1 will be connected to the internet do they will not have the cloud which a lot of Xbox1 games need stated repeatedly by ms " only with the power of the cloud" so what about those people will their games work at all or will they just be not as good? Anybody got an answer because I haven't heard one from ms.
Looking forward to the release its the only console I will get most likely unless Nintendo bring more games that appeal to me.
Not with all those tv features its not. Its for living room entertainment and multitasking and it also plays videogames. PS4 is the gamers console. If MS drops ALL support for real core games when Kinect was optional, what the hell do you guys think will happen when it's mandated into every device? The exact same thing is going to happen, only this time you're going to pick from dancing Darth Vader vs petting baby lions in year 3 rather than year 5. How is it that no one else sees this? They're shoving the camera into the box because shovelware costs nothing to develop and they make way more money. All you Xbox supporters are going to be burned again. The difference this time around is that it will be your fault. In the immortal words of Dubya. "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice........I won't git fooled again hehehehe!"
"Xbox One is for Gamers" That watch a lot of TV and movies.
How is it for gamers when it went with weaker hardware and all this TV functionality? No matter how you cut it, gaming came second to whomever designed the Xbox one.
ps4 gamer = welfare gamer
Xbox gamers= stupid children
Real hypocritical comment.
Who are you to call names to Xbox gamers? I have Xbox, will buy Xboxone and Ps4, i´m stupid because i want to play the games i like? Lets say youre GAY, do people have the right to call you names because of your choice? When i see comments like yours, i lose a litle more faith in mankind. I have Megadrive, saturn, dreamcast and xbox's, they all were beaten by Sonys Ps's, do i care? No because i have a blast playing the games i like in these system's.
XBOX-ONE = best value in entertainment. Games, game dvr, movies, natural user interface, voice controlled, dedicated servers, cloud powered, HDMI in, Xbox live, best controller, and much more coming. Exciting times coming.
They didn't design it for gamers....so why now AFTER do they claim that? It's all spin. You can't design a Geo Metro and then claim after the fact it's a sports car.
@TwistedReality @heihooslilver bashing a gamer for the game console they choose to play on is part of being a fanboy or do you guys not pay attention to this site. to compare it to gay bashing is a little over the top. second this comment was direct at someone who called ps4 gamers welfare games dont see your comments about that hear. wonder why that is. and most xbox fan boys started playing games on xbox so children. if my comments made you lose faith in mankind you didnt have much to begin with. further more if you cant take it log off the internet and never come back because myself and plenty of other people will continue to keep bashing each other so get over yourselves
