Seems to be a trend with Ms. Announce shitty business decision, walk it back to something more reasonable. On paper people should be happy... In reality ms looks like an incompetent con man.

That seems crazy, people put up all that money for a pre-order?! I can see paying $5 at your local best buy or something, but I laugh at even doing that. Amazon pre-orders are the only ones I'm willing to make because they don't take any money.

Does this mean THQ took enough pre-orders to collect that much money ahead of time!? That's crazy if so. Who are these crazies pre purchasing games!

Re: Headset being included

These guys are hilarious. (MS) They obviously thought that the brand "Xbox" meant they can put shit in a box, call it xbox, and it will sell. Reality bitch slapping them every step of the way is priceless.

Even if its just one guy not getting his (promised) pre-order then its an issue!! Just put yourself in the shoes of that guy, you would be pretty pissed wouldnt you??

I had an experience like this dealing with that Star Trek Pinball table. It's a digital item which is more frustrating but they said that I should simply login with my email I used on kickstarter. So I did. (I chose android) The app crashed every time. I asked them to look into this, I thought it may have been related to the fact that i created this account on an Ipad and I was using it on an android.

For literally 2 months I asked them to fix this and got nothing. I eventually gave up and let them know I'd be contacting Kickstarter to ask for a refund. (all $10 of it) During all this the game was for sale in their pinball app for $5. I played the demo several times while I waited but it was extremely frustrating to have them selling it to anyone who wants it for half what I paid and feeling like I was being ignored.

Shortly after I requested a refund the issue was resolved. I used a new email and they had no trouble linking the table to that but now i have this one random account that has that table.

I've not had any other issues with my kickstarter stuff. I didn't care about the table or my $10, I did care about the principal.

Dear lord, you guys are FUCKED. If you have a XBOne order in now, cancel that fucker, IMMEDIATELY.

*Doseqques guy* (Fuck spelling, Dos Equis)

I don't pre-order often, but when I do I use amazon so I can cancel that fucker at the last minute.

All I know is that I will never, ever buy an Xbox One unless they remove the pointless gimmick camera that has contributed nothing worthwhile to the platform.

It's going to be really hard for MS to justify that thing if they don't have some ace up their sleaves we haven't seen. The features it offers are a waste of money. The PS3 shipped with full backwards compatability and in very short order they had to rip that out so they could sell it at a competitive price.

MS could surprise us but there is nothing that indicates they have the talent to actually expoit that device. They're treating it like it's someone elses responsibility to sell it. After all this time they should have a killer app that uses kinect waiting in the wings. The fucking thing should come with a game that everyone is dying to play. If they can't deliver that they should remove the kinect or eat the $100 extra on price.

I think they're going to stay on course till this holiday season and then get slaughtered. Sony / PS3 style laughing at the piles of 180's sitting in stores.

EA and MS seems like an easy match, they're both clearly delusional. Origin serves little purpose other than an obstacle to play their games. It's not a big obstacle but if their website simply offered downloads of the games directly I can't say I'd miss origin.

So how graphic does it get? Wondering if developing it outside traditional channels made them a bit more bold?

I would be slightly more interested in kinect 2.0 if it worked with the pc. Keep up the good work MS.

Even if you don't believe in paid reviews (and I believe it's far less common than people here think), there's still the whole hand-that-feeds issue. Which isn't nefarious so much as human nature.

I don't fault game journo's for this. Someone said it perfectly in the past, "Access is precious". The companies making games can pick and choose who they give access and if a game news site would like access it pays to be neutral to positive in how you approach your work.

It's often not reality in my experience so I take a lot of the opinions and ratings from game news sites with a grain of salt. It's become worlds easier to judge a game thanks to youtube let's play videos. I love those things.

Improvements need to be made. Games journalism still has a way to go before it becomes just that journalism.

If anyone does real journalism I think they're basically black balled from the entire industry. I think as a general rule Game Journo's are going to tell you the upside to a game. If that upside doesn't sound very impressive then you probably want to go try it before you buy it in some way.

Once something is out there for the XBOne, it's supported on the Cloud. The amount of money Microsoft would gain from taking it down would be pennies a month.

You know dividends are paid in pennies per share. This is a sales pitch.

MS can't even keep content that was sold on XBLA in storage so that people can re download it. Cyberball 2072 comes to mind, went looking for it and wanted to play. It's no longer on XBLA. You can't even download it if you've purchased in the past. (Like I did) (2007 if you're wondering)

They pull stuff off the current xbox "cloud" right now to save money. Just like EA shuts down servers for older games. They're saving pennies doing it but that is ok with them, they don't want to spend 1 penny more than absolutely necessary.

It's sad to think that people believe this crap about the cloud. Having online servers can be useful but they have to be paid for. MS hasn't been all that generous with it's users or it's devs. Overpriced content on XBLA, $60 fee to see advertising, $40,000 fee for patches, forcing prices on DLC...yeah suddenly MS is going to give everyone free dedicated servers!

Wake up people. Whatever they offer will be premium priced.

I'm very happy with how Planetary Annihilation is coming along. I went in on the $100 kickstarter package so at some point I'll see an awesome T-shirt and a bad ass little model of my commander!

Had several kickstarter things happen this week, Star Citizen shipped me my Citizen card, Rear Admiral in Chrome Metal, looks amazing plus my two T-shirts and the board game The Perfect Heist showed up!

Even if ms dropped to $399 I dought they'd match Ps4 sales. MS was caught res handed trying to rip people off. They need to make amends by either offering better content/services or under cutting Sony on price by a healthy margin. I'm assuming ppl will will only buy one of these and at this point buying the 180 looks like a trap.

Hmm, I went to Amazon and figured I'd pre order just in case... Couldn't pull the trigger. I'm still good with waiting.

Prob a good time to sell my 360.
