Malik: "With the recent announcement of Xbox One's Internet and Licensing policies...it's almost safe to say the title rings true."
Lmao holy sh*t that was good.
I couldn't stop laughing
lmao ps4 button share dat He spoke the truth though. what a majority of people think.
in all seriousness, the distinction of greatest disappointment would have to go to the phantom. either that or the jaguar. and I have a jaguar so I speak from experience.
@darth: No no, that distinction goes to Virtual Boy. Come on now, you know it's true.
Here are two interesting videos about Xbox One: 1- http://www.youtube.com/watc... 2- http://www.youtube.com/watc... Both videos are pretty interesting! Enjoy!
We are glad you enjoyed it :) I just really hope someone makes a video defending it, I would love to hear what that person has to say.
Damn Truth, where u been?! Last time I saw one of your vids was in 2011 lol.
Even if someone makes a video reply you know its wont be the truth itll be lies from the get go. there is no way anyone could defend all this BS truthfully.
That was a GREAT video. I literally LMAO! Mostly because it is exactly how I feel about this abomination MS is trying to pass off as a gaming console.
I agree. I have PC, PS3, and X360 and love them all, but I will NOT even consider getting this POS. period. end of story.
yeah it was good. and lol at the xbox fanboys who said wait untill the xbox one reveal and guess what all the rumors were true so xbox fanboys need to be silent and stop trying to give ms more chances. its over you said wait and we did and the info of all the rumors were true so sorry you lost bros. ps4, pc, wii u, and handhelds is what im getting and is the smart choices.
This video is stupid.
Ive never even owned an MS console nor will i be getting an xboxone but i think people are taking it too far, if you don't like it don't buy it, Honestly Always online shouldn't be a problem unless you are too poor to afford a decent Internet connection, if that is the case, stop playing games and find a better job.Fanboys just love going crazy over these kinds of things, as for the DRM sony will probablyhave near the same stuff, MS said they were going to show games at E3 so at least let them mess it up at E3 before saying they failed,Honestly i don't see how Xbox Fans can find anything wrong with the Xbox one other than the used games issue which PS4 will have to some degree too. Whenever MS, Nintendo,or some PC developer make even a slight mistake, Sony Fanboys try to make it look like the end of the world.
"The Xbox One is the Greatest Disappointment In Gaming History" or the fact that they turned down a new killer instinct. Either way same company.
i disagree, i think xbox one will surprise everyone at E3 with its capabilities and games.
Microsoft haven't surprised anyone at E3 for the past 4 years... unless by "surprise" you mean "disappoint".
by surprise he means rephrase all of the restrictions to sound less restrictive.
PT Do you think it's possible for MS to top the disappointment of the realization of Kinect (Skittles, where are yah boy? Dance, dance with Usher - shovel ware crap) vs the perceived expectations of what Natal (Milo and the ability to use this futuristic amazing device with hardcore games) was suppose to be? Just more smoke and mirrors from MS. Nothing a ton of money thrown at marketing and PR wouldn't take care of. More of MS and their bean counter approach to business. I literally almost smashed my 360's with a sledgehammer June 6 E3 2011. I haven't look at my 360's the same ever since. ;) Yes, the XBOX ONE is even worse. I wouldn't use one if it was given to me. MS can go kick rocks.
I don't know. I was genuinely Surprised when Usher got on stage, when they got those kids to play Kinectimals, when they got those dude man bros to watch ESPN, and when they let Peter M spout off crap about the last Fable and even Milo. Because I didn't think a company with that much power and influence could fall that far from grace.
I agree with Tee7soo, not so much the capabilities but the games. MS has money. They will money hat (like they always do) and show off a million trailers for a million games (even if those games are multiplat, even if those trailers are "target renders", even if those trailers are faked). The real question is this: when Microsoft drops the bomb (and they will), is everyone going to magically forget all of the bad stuff that goes with the Xbox One? I'm genuinely curious to see how many so-called "journalists" will do a 180.
They will only use games to try and make people forget about the anti consumer things they are doing and to make people forget they are basicaly giving up their rights/freedo/Privacy m with the new Xbox. After the games they have to show release they'll revert right back to what they've been doing this gen.
"Journalists" do a 180? LOL, dude are you mad? Journalists aren't even that livid or anti-Xbox One at the moment. Many are trying to "reason" it out or find ways to spin the news. Next week we'll see the fruits of their weekend thought-labors on how to convince people that the "Xbox One isn't that bad". They'll go pro-Microsoft regardless of what MS shows...they can't abandon the Doritocracy or disappoint the Dorito Pope...it's their life blood. The only thing E3 will do is get "smaller" or middle-tier sites to switch stances from spreading hatred and community vitriol to saying "Well uh, the DRM ain't that bad...but did you see dem gaems, guyz?! Amirite?! Amirite?!?!?"
@ cyguration There are some bigger journalists who are speaking out. Maybe not Geoff Keighley, but people like Adam Sessler, Jeff Gerstman (Giant Bomb), Stephen Totilo (Kotaku), and a bunch of internet celebrity gamers (Angry Joe, Annoyed Gamer, HipHopGamer, Francis, etc). The American journalists are being a bit more neutral... ...but once you start looking at Eurogamer, EDGE, and gaming sites in Japan, that's where the REAL outrage is going on, completely unfettered.
I always thought Angry Joe and internet stars are more niche? I will grant you Sessler and Gertsmann. Scratch HipHopGamer, I didn't know he was still around. But I will give you Eurogamer (they had a great piece) and Edge. The Americans don't want to dog the Xbox maybe because they're afraid of MS? But the problem is that the XB1 is aimed at AMerican audiences first and if American media isn't dogging it now it's highly likely they'll ride that attitude up to launch. But I sure hope that you're right about non-Amurr'can journalists keeping the heat on them because it's likely anyone signed up with the Doritocracy will keep downplaying the issues or promoting the exclusive games.
there is no way ms can announce more and better exclusives games then whats coming out on the ps4, wii u, and pc. ps4 already announced more exclusives then ms has and e3 hasnt even happend yet. Also sony and nintendo and pc all have better devs then microsoft. look at naughty dog 2 games with 96% on metacritic and they are different ips. sony santa monica with god of war 3, little big planet 95% metacritic. mario galaxy, zelda etc. ms also will have the inferior mutliplats. im trying to see why some people are trying to get an xbox one or better yet trying to avoid better alternatives.
Regardless of how many games they show, ppl still wont be satisfied. Cant win. Fuck it. WiiU/3DS/X1 for me. Dont like it? Dont buy it.
Well it'll definitely surprise everyone I'll give you that.
I've brought my expectations for Microsoft at E3 this year really low. I'm not expecting much from them, but I hope they prove me wrong!
Well I think Microsoft have got the surprising people down perfectly.. one might just say they're masters of surprise. Sadly, it's a surprise gamers don't want.
xbox owners yearly warcry..."WAIT FOR E3!!!"
sony owners yearly warcry...."THIS IS SONYS YEAR...FAILS"
Like Ari Gold. GTFO!
Coming from a helghast avatar so ironic. And "No" im Pro Sony Don Mattrick should have listened to me. I have Windows OS to deal with, the console biz is their mess can't argue with a bunch of shareholders.
This Video has nothing to do with gaming at all very fanboyish. Very funny video tho.
The Xbox One doesn't have anything to do with gaming either. All I saw at the reveal was TV TV TV TV TV TV TV TV TV TV TV TV....and a little dog.
get em green ranger he gon turn into some big monster now get ready for round 2 get dat zord out.
fanboy calls fanboy, derp!
The Curse Of The 3rd Console
Wait a minute, you're right Nintendo 64: Nintendo's third console, great first party support but outside of Rare there wasn't much third party support. Was expect to sell 50 million, only sold around 30. Was the start of Nintendo's struggle with third parties. Sega Saturn: Sega's third console (if you don't count the SG1000 and SG2000) Amazing success in Japan with a lot of first and third party games. Bombed everywhere else due to Sega's incompetence, started Sega's downfall. Playstation 3: Great variety of games, but because of costly R & D, slow launch and the hacking incident, Sony lost billions. Xbox One: Well...you know. Oh my god...you're right.
Well that escalated quickly...
I disagree with the title as the e.t. game for atari has garnered that title on several lists, and for good reason...and if you want to talk consoles than one can bring up the virtual boy as a true contender... I do think his rant is a bit pre-mature seeing as how all the details are not released... He also goes on to speculate how the 10 friends function will work, assuming that it's 10 friends that are somehow registered to your box. The release did state that you can share your game with 10 friends or family and "play the same game at any given time."... Now if it's how he assumes than how can more than 3 people play the same game at ANY given time off of 1 box?? The way i understand it is, i can have my friend or family in my "circle" and they have access to ALL my games from the CLOUD, which means that they CAN be 3000 miles away, log in and play, so can i. If that is the case it also means that i can play along with them and they won't have to buy the game. Which in essence doubles everyone's game library to a certain degree as long as they remain in your circle. That alone is a very good advantage if it is indeed possible. Nevertheless, i'm sure it is a question that will be asked at e3. As for everything else, we'll see after next week i guess. P.s. I didn't find the video funny at all.
" the e.t. game for atari has garnered that title on several lists" In all honesty, I think that's simply a case of people who are too young to remember it (or perhaps weren't even alive during that time) looking it up on Wikipedia and going "aha! E.T caused the crash of '83" (which isn't true, either). It's like people who think that Zelda II: Adventure of Link was a "flop", even though it got great reviews for its time and sold over 4 million copies. It was sold out for nearly a month in the USA.
i was simply talking about the title not about numbers. That e.t. game was put together in 2 weeks forced by the publisher and when the developer admittedly says the game is horrible and hated it from the start then you know it's bad. anything left was supposedly buried in a desert somewhere. I know it wasn't what caused the crash (i remember it well), the crash was already happening, but it pretty much sealed the deal...as for zelda 2. Doesn't matter if it sold 4 mil, if it didn't do as well as it's predecessor than it is seen as a disappointment. Same is said about music and movies. But that's neither here nor there. Anyhow to call the xbox one as the greatest disappointment in history is a bit premature seeing as how it's not even on the market yet...i'm not saying that it will be great either. All i'm saying is that this video rant is premature is all... What will he say 6 months from now IF the games are there, the price is there, and everything isn't as bad as people are making it out to be and the thing sells like crazy?... Just because the wind has picked up doesn't mean the biggest tornado in the world is around the corner.
How are ppl gonna play these games on the cloud has anyone thought about that yet? you know its impossible to stream a live game like cod online right ? Lets say you are a family member in the "circle" of friends that are allowed to play your games, they look in your shared game folder and decide oooo look halo 48 i might play that, they will have to Download that game from the cloud they cant just play it without the whole game being on their xbone, so thats a bit of a wait for the 15 to 25 gig games to DL then they can play it, and thats only if it works that way which i doubt it will.
Title says it all.
My Xbox 360 is always online...sooo I really don't care about whether or not the Xbox One needs to be online.
Most the people complaining are always online too, but they like don't want to be left out. Trashing the Xbox One is the cool thing to do right now.
nope right now my internet is out and im on N4G from my phone if i had X1 the console would be useless to me right now. One reason why always is already bad idea not everyone has internet 24/7 not even everyone in america
I hope you realise this affects those tens of millions of 360 gamers who aren't online at all with their system, not really someone like you who is always connected. There are alot of countries in the world where internet is bad and spotty and wouldn't be able to meet the high demands ms is asking of them. If Ms doesnt want those players, Ninty and Sony will be glad to welcome them into the fold. PS Bzone24, kudos on your avatar, very nice choice.
Well said, Bzone. The number of people that would rush out to buy an Xbox One that also don't have broadband isn't a huge number anyway. I just fail to understand all the hate. Maybe I'm just a weird type of gamer, but so far there isn't one "restriction" that I would even notice had I bought an XB1 without reading about it all first. Literally none of it affects me. lol Unless there is some sort of natural disaster and my Internet goes out for more than a day, but I can only assume that if that were to happen I'd probably have no power, either. So, Trenso, your Internet has been out for more than 24 hours already?? What the Hell? I've had broadband in one form or another since 1999, and I've never once had it out for more than a few hours at a time. And in the first few years of that I was living in a town of 800 people with DSL provided by a family owned telephone company. Where do you people live that your Internet is that crappy on a regular basis???
My internet isn't crappy there are just more important bills to pay and I live in New York, anyways it doesn't excuse the fact that the always online doesn't affect a wide range of gamers. It may not affect you but it affects a lot of other people. And this close mindedness is disturbing, regardless of your console preference all gamers should be against this since it doesn't benefit us as a whole.
Same here, always online and doing things because others think its cool is extremely lame.
what freedom? example...true story btw.....just yesterday I lent tomb raider to a friend who lost his job and cant afford this epic game....he also just had his internet cut off so we cant play nba2k against each other online anymore. I told him to hurry up and beat it so I can trade it in in time for the last of us release next week. that my friend is a freedom that will be lost. also there is alot of problems my friend and I would run into if we were talking xb1...his internet is off so his $400+ machine is just a dvd player now and I wouldnt be able to get tomb raider back to trade in for tlou....if trading in is even possible with the xb1 idk anymore because stuffs too complicated. if you dont see a problem with these type of restrictions then you had a fanboy sickness called gullible dumbass
do you care about the lending/renting/buying used games limitations. do you care if they strip you of the freedoms you as a consumer..? wow were you one of the ms employees clapping at the reveal? smh also what about the millions of gamers who dont have online? what about the troops...of people whom dont make enough to pay for the internet&xbl at the same time......people especially xb fanboys are forgetting about the people who dont have the same luxuries as them....you may always be online and thats great but ms will fail this gen because they overlooked the people who cant afford the internet or the ones who dont have the internet wired in their area. I myself can afford it but I dont agree with this bs ms is pulling
What freedom are we stripped of? I can still buy a game, pop it in, and play. You can still sell your games. And no, i dont care about renting/lending.
"Loaning or renting games won’t be available at launch, but we are exploring the possibilities with our partners." http://news.xbox.com/2013/0... Very free.....so very free
My Xbox 360 is always online too.. what's your point? I've been through a good five scenarios in the last 10 years of my life where I was left without an internet connection for longer than 24 hours.. in one case nearly a month. Don't defend something that can't be defended, there is just zero benefit of online checks for gamers. All it takes is for you to move home and not be in a position to sort your internet out for your new place beforehand and then you're taking your console over to your friend's to show that you're a good boy to Lord Microsoft.
I won't lie, I have, more or less, perfect internet connection. The last time I was disconnected was for a few hours a few years ago, but I'm lucky. I also don't buy or sell games, I very rarely lend or borrow games and, genuinely, the DRM and restricted sales doesn't affect me. I'm disgusted at the thing because, unlike some people and Microsoft themselves, I understand why it's a problem and I understand that just because I have had no issues in the past doesn't mean the potential isn't there to be completely without internet service. More to the point, I understand that not everyone has as much disposable income as I have where I can buy almost every game I want, some people have to be more reserved in their choices or they may have to give up a few games to get a new one or renting or borrowing may be their only real way to play games, it doesn't make them any less of a gamer, just not in a situation where they can afford to buy everything. I also understand that used games were being blamed for reduced profits, but then Microsoft have handed the keys to the kingdom to the biggest "enemy" in GameStop meaning their policy hurts smaller retailers and independent deals more than anything else. I also understand the restrictions aren't going to result in cheaper games even though there's no "used market" draining any percieved profit. Fundamentally, though, PSN was down at one point for nearly a month. Live is not some sort of fortress, regardless of what Microsoft would have you believe and every network has a weakness somewhere, there's nothing to indicate to me that Live will never, ever have issues. If you don't care, it's a very selfish or foolish attitude to take because we are all in this together. It doesn't affect you now but once Microsoft stop providing authentication servers maybe 10 years down the line, you have a box with no way to play games on it and no one to acquire games you missed... you know, unlike every other console ever.
My neighbourhood is quite safe...sooo I really don't care that other people around the world get murdered on their own side walk. The price of a plain loaf of bread is $200 which I can easily afford...sooo I really don't care that other people can't afford it and die of starvation. I'm not a Jew...sooo I really don't care that nazi's and killing 6 million of them. By all means, please brush off my examples of your horrible selfishness as extreme and unrelated to gaming.
Yeah because the moral implications of an always online Xbox are remotely equivalent to everything you just listed. Can't ignore it, it's not even close. I'm sure the victims of the holocaust would roll in their grave if they heard their sacrifices were used to justify the bashing of a video game console. Fucking idiot.
I was still holding out hope that Microsoft would change their mind. :(
They will they will decide to charge 30 a month for live instead of 60 a year lol.
damn that was to funny bro.
Eh, it's alright.
the question I have is....where does it state that the xbox one won't work if it's nit hooked up to the internet? people seem to be jumping to the conclusion that these 24 checks means that if I unplug from the internet then the x one will not work. such as playing a single player game. my systems are always connected...as I'm sure many others are. so I ask...why is this a issue?
It works offline for 24 hours if your account is checked in from your primary Xbox until another check-in happens. Once that check in happens, you need an internet connection or your games will lock and not play. If your account is signed in on a foreign Xbox, the check-ins happen hourly
