Xbox One = 359 steps back.

That Xbox reveal was underwhelming to say the least. Used game fee? Forget about it. They're going to see that's a mistake. In fact, during the reveal, Nintendo and Sony saw an increase in their stock value, while Microsoft took something of a fall on theirs.

No backward compatibility, the TV supposedly requires a separate device to do it, and you have to pay a fee to authorize use of a game on another console. If that isn't digging a grave for a console, I don't know what is. I see no reason to not get a PS4 instead, other than the fact that it's not backward compatible either, and I still want a PS3 for a lot of JRPGs I've missed out on. Maybe even the Wii U will go places in a year, and it'll find success, like the 3DS did (I got my 3DS a few months ago, and I absolutely love it).

EDIT: So, that's where all the applause was coming from:


EDIT AGAIN: From a Kaz Hirai parody Twitter account, proof that the PS4 is better.


What are your thoughts on this upcoming generation?

I'm most interested in The Playstation 4, what with it's Game Streaming via Gaikai and the fact that I might be able to actually afford to buy games when it comes out.
It would be nice if it also has the alternative media features ps3 has (playing .mp4, audio, etc), but it's not totally important if it doesn't.
I kinda feel less like a douchebag for badmouthing Microsoft for all of these years, due to recent events.
Since, the game selection has always been terribly limited and the exclusives less than extraordinary.
Even Nintendo can guarantee my receipt with Zelda and Mario RPG titles.
And even now they have Ace Attorney and Professor Layton.
I can't think of any Xbox exclusives that haven't already peaked.
I recall people going crazy over cross platform titles.
Saying that the quality was better on the Xbox 360, which I never really cared about.
:rambling:


Actually.
I kinda feel bad that I never mention any American games.
Help me out, guys.
What American/Canadian/French/ETC (not from Japan) games are there that don't suck?

Metro: Last Light (4A), Portal 2 (Valve), Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken (Ratloop), Far Cry 3 (Ubisoft Montreal), Dead Space 1/2/3 (Visceral), Assassin's Creed 2 (Ubisoft Montreal), Mirror's Edge (DICE), Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (DICE), Minecraft (Mojang), others that I haven't played or can't recall at the moment

also Watch Dogs (Ubisoft Montreal) looks like it's going to be interesting

There are plenty of good non-Japanese games out there. You don't even have to look as close as you're trying to to find any, I just think you're highly biased is all.

Hmm. Apparently you don't need to pay the fee to play a used game. Just to add it to your digital collection. (Steam-like)

yeah, the more i'm hearing about the next xbox, the more it sounds like steam.

A little bit more faith is being slowly restored. Though, Microsoft is still being largely unclear about some really important things.

RC 6 years, 4 months ago

Between the PS4 and Xbox One, I'm leaning more towards the former if I bought another console. Neither of them really interest me yet, though. I'll be waiting until E3 before making a solid non-solid decision, though.

All I need to know now is if Xbox live is going to be free.
