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.

Microsoft Addresses Geographical Concerns Over Cloud Service for Xbox One

All the crap microsoft is spewing about the cloud making their system better sounds a lot like the "Blu-Ray makes ps3 better" marketing blurbs.

The few examples they give for how it does this basically sounds like dedicated servers...If dedicated servers can make my pc 2x faster then sign me the fuck up. What am I doing buying all this expensive hardware when I can just rent the extra horsepower I need from a server somewhere and POOF, CRYSIS 3 ULTRA SETTINGS.

Wait, didn't I read someplace that their reply to the question was "Microsoft Studios" games would be 59.99 but they declined to comment on any other publishers' games? Is this a clarification?

There has been no clarification on standard price for third party games. They could still announce it at $69.99.

You can't really assume anything with MS because everything they've announced becomes different on closer inspection. MS came out assuming no one would care about the details.

MS Xbox One Mission Statement: "Everyone loves xbox so we know it's going to sell, so what do we want to have in it?"

MS PR folks are awe struck at the questions coming from gamers and the press.

"Why the 24 hour limits, why so restrictive?"
I...don't you want to know where you can pre-order? I have this list right here, ask me about that.

"Why Region Locked"
...we're selling it overseas, isn't that great! You can buy it there too!

"We can't resell our games?"
Cloud, you see you get the cloud now, so pre-order! XBOX!

Behind the scenes: You said they'd love us!!! You said this would be a cake walk!? It's the fucking bay of pigs out here! We're getting slaughtered!!

Any form of cheating should be grounds for immediate termination and lock out from all games. That's one thing I can agree with.

Careful, the wording you use here would also punish people playing sp that want to cheat the ai. I think people should be able to play a sp game anyway they like. Heck, mods can be considered cheating as well since you're doing things outside the approved game play. Competitive mp would be the only thing where a ban makes sense. Even Co op cheating should be allowed, if you find a way to make your gun fire non stop without cool down for example and you and your friends go around killing enemy ai all day no ban needed.

The lack of these kind of controls in place has made pc gaming a very cool place.

Xbox One sharing groups not restricted to family.

...right... I'll believe that when I see it. Anyone who believes this probably owns a lot of bridges.

Seems like we already did the underwater stuff with MW3. Should be very interesting to see if one of the new ip's can steal the thunder from this franchise. I'm a little shocked that they aren't better prepared to jump on the next gen consoles. I would expect destiny and titan (respawns game) to set the visual standards.

The TV thing is so dumb because people want to cut the cord, not further burden themselves with yet another device dependent on it. Really dumb.

With it's current features the whole idea is dumb. Windows 7 comes with a "media center" program that I believe offers similar functionality but I think it can also record programs. (you need a tv tuner in your pc obviously)

It would be a great feature if they allowed you to have a Cable Card in your box and just plug cable straight into that. Add DVR functionality and I think everyone would be excited.

A pass through overlay? No thanx. It already makes more sense to just use the Comcast xfinity website to watch on demand content versus using their box interface, why would I want to use that interface through my 360!? The newer tivo models have their own interface to access on demand content.

The only thing this feature seems designed to do is watch live sports. Putting a lot of eggs in one basket for that considering I'd rather watch "live" sports via a dvr and save myself an hour of commercials.

Plus shipping this thing with Kinect standard? That might be the worst part of the whole deal. Shipping it standard seems to me that they're going to require developers to use it and so far it's been a complete joke for the games I enjoy playing. I see that device being more useful for games like angry birds, chess and other mobile friendly games that I'm not about to spend hundreds of dollars in order to play.

Assuming both PS4 and ONE show up with some used game restrictions that put them on par with the PC I don't see a good reason to put up with all this bullshit when I can use the PC + Gamepad. (plus pay pennies on the dollar for games)

Hmm, $20 is too much for me atm. I love me some Xcom but I'm drowning in games. Bought that humble bundle with the first poker night, bought sleeping dogs complete, bought torchlight 2 a while back, metro last light, I need to get some game time for all my games!

This would be a perfect game to include in a humble bundle in the future, maybe when the Oculus rift has retail products selling they can do a humble Oculus rift bundle.

PS4 and Vita remote play is just like Nintendo's Wii U handheld controller... why would anyone get that (Wii U) when you can just have a Vita/PS4? Nintendo is screwed now.

I'm more hopeful that Sony can offer a fully cross platform solution for Wii U games so that any third party games can become cross platform on the PS4!

I've given up hope that Nintendo will have trouble though, they're like the Disney of video games. They're catalog of games is just too fucking strong to ever give them serious trouble. Make a mario / zelda game and they'll be fine. Didn't they just buy the Sonic IP as well!?

Hmm, my kids are in bed at 8:30, so I start gaming at 9. Is that not possible? Also, time to set up the game PC in the study so you can go in and lock the door?

I do all my gaming after the kids go to bed but I find myself struggling to stay awake for more than 2 hours...I miss my all day gaming marathons. That is all I want for fathers day, birthday's, christmas, just take the kids and give me 12 hours of uninterrupted game time. During the day!

Maybe the Oculus Rift would be smarter...I'm sure no one will mind that...

Well I think Sony just sold a PS4 and a Vita to me! I run into issues all the time when I can't play my video games because my girls are in the room. My wife is very careful in what the girls can watch on TV so video games with even a little bit of violence can't be played when they're around...and they're always around!

Looking forward to this feature.
