So if you want to play your game on another system, you'll be dishing out an extra $40, $50, $60 - unless you're logged into your main account.

I'd like to say "I'm happy with my current system, I'll never buy a next-gen one and stick with it" but unfortunately I'll have no choice. They'll simply stop making games for it in a year or two and force my hand, or they'll release a game on the next-gen systems that I have to play. I will be able to keep with my current system until Mass Effect 4, the next Elder Scrolls game or the next Final Fantasy come out. Those are really the only series I'm waiting for and I wouldn't be surprised if it isn't until early 2015 that any of them come out.

No backwards compatibility is lame as hell but I'm old enough to remember the console days when I had to keep my NES, SNES and N64 hooked up. The used game thing is pretty ridiculous too. But maybe if a year or two passes there'll be enough backlash that they work those features out of future versions of the console. Another reason to wait a little while to buy one.

And lastly, Xbox One is a very odd name. Did the first two systems never happen? Are they embarrassed by the millions of dollars they brought in? Is Halo something they want to forget? It is a better name than "Xbox 720" a lot of people were joking about. I don't know what they could've gone with instead. Maybe some random word that just sounded cool like "Xbox Cryogen" or "Xbox Velociraptor".

You have a good point. But my problem with PCs goes back twenty years and always having to upgrade to play new games. At least up to this point when I bought a PS3 game, even though my PS3 was a five year old first generation console, I knew the game would play and at worse I'd have to delete some old save files to make room for it.


And PC games would only mean I'd get Star Wars: the Old Republic and subsiquently lose my job, alienate my family and gain two hundred pounds.



The only difference right now is I still have my hair.

Xbox One is a joke holy shit. It's clear they are steering more towards entertainment now than games.

1. They are pretty much banning used games and in order to play them you have to pay full price. Fuck that.

2. In order for the Xbox to work at all the Kinect must be connected at all times. That is just fucking stupid. I don't want, need, or have use for the stupid ass thing. God forbid my cat accidentally unplugs it while I am playing an important game and then it shuts off cause the stupid thing isn't plugged in.

3. Don't care about NFL or fantasy stat tracker. Have Direct TV that does that shit already with fantasy and Sunday ticket. Pretty sure you will have to pay $500 if you want to watch NFL on your Xbox.

4. I just want games man. I don't care about Skype, a stupid tv guide, or any of that shit. I buy my systems for games and that is why PS4 has won both rounds for next gen so far. Cause they are just focused on game more so than entertainment. That is the reason why their conference won so many people over and made Sony's stock rise 9% after the new xbox was revealed.

Sony learned from their mistakes and are crushing M$ right now.

PS I own both a PS3 and 360 so no fanboy here.

you can stream live sports on Xbox already. They have the rights to NBA, MLS and a ton of college stuff. If they get the rights for NFL/MLB, it won't cost anything to watch games.
