Hey guys, just made this thread to gather some opinions about the Xbox reveal yesterday..

I don't know how many of you watched the reveal conference, but I have and so far it seems disappointing to me.. they've not focused at all on gaming but made it an entertainment system for your living room; potentially loosing their core audience/fans.

From what it looks like to me, Sony's getting back on their feet and are determined and focused on the core audience and what they really should have been offering after the legendary PS1/PS2 followed by the failure of the PS3..

Comments?

I think it looked really good tbh

Spec looks good, online looks really spot on which is what I always hated on my ps3 compared to the Xbox and the new forza and options that come with the Kinnect look really good

Can't wait for it myself

dont worry too much about the reveal conference

E3 is where they will show us more about gaming on the console

but its pretty pathetic that sony had a bullshit conference a few weeks back and couldnt give out any specs whatsoever...not even so much as a picture of the console

its bad form when your scared to release specs for fear of microsoft having better specs....thats shows just how much microsoft is the sector leader

i had a quick look through the 2hour video and wasnt that impressed with it, the voice command and the split screen idea was good but dont think il be getting one just yet

ive heard once you buy a game you can only use it in your xbox so no lending of games?

did they say how much its guna cost?

I'm not sure about the Xbox One.. I heard that if you buy a game, you can't share it, the other person will have to buy it online if they use your games. Also I heard that you must be connected to the internet once a day so if your internet is down on a day for some reason, you won't be able to play even single player on it which is stupid I reckon. Also, the design looks a bit less modern than the Xbox Slim that I have now which is a shame :/ It looks like everything's been much chunkier (apart from Kinect) and more square.

About the PS4, I haven't heard anything about it but I think it's best for everyone to convert to PC gaming :D

I heard around £400! Duno how true it is though.

About the disc sharing though, not sure how they'll play this as it would ruin the rental market, unless they design rental only discs or something, sill i think its a ridiculous idea.

thats crazy, sounds like their guna screw themselves over if these are true.

£400 isnt as bad as i expected

the controllers sounded decent and looked more rubber than plastic, didnt look like you could open them up tho :((

wii u ftw, more for gamers,
xbox 1 have scraped the idea of constant online.
You will not be able to buy preowned games u must pay full wack each time.

Looks like a 90s vcr player
My Opion= Fail
Hopefully they see the feedback online and re design it.

as some people may know, shits just hit the fan for the US government in regards to this PRISM and NSA. What got my attention is the fact that microsoft are making their kinnect system PERMANENTLEY on, that means that little camera is always on, and when microsoft are apparently involved in this PRISM scheme you only need to put 2 + 2 together to realise its not good :nono:

im a big xbox fan, never really liked PS but i will never buy a xbox one now

just seen this pic on fazzbook lol....

Tough Decision. I've always went with the Playstation option and this year I was keen to try the Xbox but from the information so far it looks like the PS4 has edged it in terms of gaming.

x2 on all those points. you can get a converter to use a xbox controller on PS or PC, not sure how good they are though

* just come across this, a new xbox 360 was released today :confused:

Microsoft is doing a poor job..i've been following it on ign for the last souple of days.
xbox 1-499euro.
ps4-399euro.

The sharing games crack on the xbox is a joke along with the always online internet connection needed.

Forza 5 is the only thing that's making me consider it. Open wheel race cars are in! That includes niki lauda and james hunt f1 cars from 1976.

GTA5 is going to be something on the current xbox 360 though.

Totally forgot to check back on this thread and seeing as its POST E3.. i've gotta say, what a fail Microsoft! PS4/Sony smashed it.. The only games i'm jealous about from Xbox side of things is Ryse, Forza, and Titanfall (which will also be on PC)

Lets not forget Sony didn't even reveal all of their exclusives yet.. they're probably saving it for the japanese game festival thingy, forgot its name. But yeah, PS4 it is for me guys! :)

Oh and, heres a Microsoft reply after Sony trolled them with the "instructional used game" video that Civicx3 shared in the last post of page 1.

I've always been a Sony player and looks like ill be staying that way.

I inherited a free Xbox 360 purely to play forza and drive some k swapped Hondas surely Microsoft must realise not everyone is an insane 24 hour gamer and occasional leaves the house.

Not seen anyone on this thread mention getting an Xbox yet, is anyone considering it?????
