Word, I haven't bought a Sony product in years because of their absolutely rude customer service.
Deal breaker for me. I only have a few games I care to play and unless a new version comes out I won't be buying a One.
According to this article from Yahoo it will, the answer your looking for is towards the bottom of the article.
Nevermind I didn't read far enough, sorry.
Unless I'm reading his quote wrong, I think the issue of sharing a game to play with a friend isn't that big of a deal.
When I play games with my friends (Say Madden) we play one on one against each other anyways. We don't use Xbox Live for that. He specifically says to use it on Xbox Live, you have to pay the fee. So if I just want to hold a madden tournament or Call of Duty I don't pay any additional fee. Even if we play on a friends system. UNLESS we play on xbox live. Am I reading that right?
Also, every game you play automatically downloads to your system, and you can play the game without the disk. So I guess it makes sense to charge the fee, b/c with that set up all you would need is one game and 10 people could download and play it anytime they want on their own consoles. Unless they charge a fee.
Am I dumb for buying a 360 now?
I still have the first generation XBOX and my 7 year old son is asking for a better thing. Buying 360 now would be dumb for a 7 year old? He can still play the cheap and used games right and when he is 9 or 10 I can get him this Xbox One
gaming is getting more ridiciolous. DRM has ruined everything. I mean granted I am always connected to the internet (first world problem) but I think it is so dumb that now it will be a requirement to play games on a console. This was going downhill the minute Blizzard and EA started requiring (and Steam to an extent) for you to be logged into a specific client. Only saving grace for steam is that there is an offline mode. I am not too happy with these next gen consoles. It was bad enought to pay a subscirption to XBL (which i painstainkly do) but now there is a fee to install and borrow games with friends/family. Stupid.
Both systems are not backwards compatible.
360 will still live on because Xbox One consoles will not play 360 games. It won't die anytime soon. Ebay is selling the new 360s very cheap now.
I'll stick with the 360 till they stop making games for it.
I don't own any original xbox games so I don't need the 360 to be backwards compatible.
I love my 360 and will be sticking with it for a long time. If I wind up getting a new system it's quite likely going to be the Ps4. I play these systems for games. Not for home entertainment. The Xbox One seems like it's a lot of extra junk I don't care about and with a bunch of rules and regulations I'm not interested in dealing with.
Personally I've had no issue with the Online play on ps3. My kids have one and the time I've played on there with friends I've had zero issue.
I'm not sure what the complaint about it is outside of it not being secure enough if someone decides they want to hack the thing.
I don't think they've killed them yet but I do think this whole thing is the goal of seriously putting a dent in their income and eventually stomping them out.
We have an xbox 360 but we will not be upgrading to the new XBOX they can take it and shove it where ever they want I hate be strongarmed so it is easy. We will either get a ps4 but if they do something stupid we will just pass on all them and goto PC & tablet type games only.
I also may look at OUYA
This isn't even the worst thing about xboxone IMO
Kinnect is basically a cctv camera in your living room and they intend to use it
That's pretty disturbing
Yeah. Had a friend telling me about this yesterday. Scary indeed.
Microsoft made it official that you need to have an internet connection when you turn it on @ least once a day in order to play.
I do have internet connection, but it becomes an issue for those that like to travel with it or in an area that doesn't have a good internet signal.
Doesn't seem like to much of an annoyance now but 10 years from now when they shut down the servers that check to see if you can play your games how are you going to play your games you bought?
This camera on the X Box is something they could potentially use to look in your room?
I like Xbox, but this thing looks stupid. I think I will wait for the redesign version that is sure to come in about 2-3 years.
