Ding ding. Exactly. It all depends on what games each console releases. If xbox seems to more so focus on the kinect stuff, I'll be switching to ps4. If they show some promising non-kinect stuff, they might have me still.

Shrug. Not too impressed, but they didn't show anything that could potentially impress anyhow.

The TV features and the like are nice, and of course the graphics are going to be nicer, but... where's the innovation? What's the killer feature?

On the Verge, they just said that it will NOT have 360 backwards comparability (during the post talk video).

Verge saying there's no backward compatibility. Sigh.

I think it's a bit too simple IMO, could've made it cooler but each to his/her own.

The One looks like a Rogers Digital Box. Heck, VCR was even trending on Twitter.

I was hoping that they showed off a few of the exclusives to the system instead of EA sports games and COD. But yeah, they're not going to show everything off with E3 just around the corner.


Still hoping Quantum Break is an FMV game

I'm waiting for the "do everything with voice commands" be parodied by a severely fat gamer who can't get out of bed or something. I could see it happen.

so the no backwards compatibility is pretty much expected but this used thing is also there now?

Wired got a look at Xbox One before today's big reveal, and they say that games will require installation to use. “On the new Xbox, all game discs are installed to the HDD to play,” Microsoft told them.

But games will be tied to an Xbox Live account, Wired reveals—or else you'd just be able to pass games around to everyone you know. And if you want to link a game to a second account, you'll have to pay a fee:


Nope, can't have you sharing games with friends anymore! That's too funny, if true.

What follows naturally from this is that each disc would have to be tied to a unique Xbox Live account, else you could take a single disc and pass it between everyone you know and copy the game over and over. Since this is clearly not going to happen, each disc must then only install for a single owner.

Microsoft did say that if a disc was used with a second account, that owner would be given the option to pay a fee and install the game from the disc, which would then mean that the new account would also own the game and could play it without the disc.

But what if a second person simply wanted to put the disc in and play the game without installing — and without paying extra? In other words, what happens to our traditional concept of a “used game”? This is a question for which Microsoft did not yet have an answer, and is surely something that game buyers (as well as renters and lenders) will want to know.

I'm not sure how they are going to go about tying particular physical discs to specific XBL accounts.

That there will be used games, or that you can play them with no fee?

If you base your decision of what console to buy off of the reveal conferences, you're gonna have a bad time.


Neither company knocked it out the park. And not a single person the world over should be shocked. These things are very rarely earth-shatteringly great.

Unless one of them is being released with a 100% MUST PLAY exclusive (which 100% won't happen) I'll wait until summer. Let them work out the kinks and allow a slate of games to arrive first. Seems the most prudent course (and I consider myself a fairly active gamer)
