The hardware looks pretty amazing I've got to say. And I love that the entire thing comes with Kinect packed in.

Features were pretty cool. Nothing really stood out except for the speed of the console and it's responsiveness to voice commands. Game wise it was pretty disappointing. I guess we all have to wait for E3.

Prediction? Seems like the obvious: they are going to go into a direction I'm not very interested in. Cable integration. More Kinect. More family oriented. More internet/online oriented. Less exclusive A titles.
Co-sign.

also sorta no used games on Xbox 1 , you have to straight DL your ga on the system and then when you use the disc on another unit you have to pay a fee to use it on that system.

If the hardware is amazing to you, then the PS4's must be jawdropping.

The Xbox One has slightly weaker hardware than the PS4

So M$ stock dropped, and Sony's went up. Not surprised.

-The used game fee bullshit is horrible.
-The 500gb of space but you HAVE TO install the game? Wtf. A blu ray disc is up to 50gb. That's 10 installs, realistically though that's only 50 game at a max.. So if you're an earlier adopter...you're screwed.
-So why not uninstall? Given how M$ is doing this generation it seems they might not even save your info in the cloud that you actually bought the game.

"What follows naturally from this is that each disc would have to be tied to a unique Xbox Live account, else you could take a single disc and pass it between everyone you know and copy the game over and over. Since this is clearly not going to happen, each disc must then only install for a single owner.

Microsoft did say that if a disc was used with a second account, that owner would be given the option to pay a fee and install the game from the disc, which would then mean that the new account would also own the game and could play it without the disc.

But what if a second person simply wanted to put the disc in and play the game without installing – and without paying extra? In other words, what happens to our traditional concept of a “used game”? This is a question for which Microsoft did not yet have an answer, and is surely something that game buyers (as well as renters and lenders) will want to know. (Update: Microsoft called Wired after this story was originally published to say that the company did have a plan for used games, and that further details were forthcoming.)"


In other words: tba, but it's not looking good.

I got into xbox 360 late. 2008 when it released in 2005 I believe. So I didnt experience the original xbox. How was the transition from xbox to xbox 360?

My issue is this. I want COD Ghost. I want AC 4. I most certainly want GTA5 the most, screw anything else. ALL drop on xbox 360. And the games could be amazing on it. HOWEVER, if Madden 25 which is one of the few games listed drops on xbox one? How much better will it be and wtf? I refuse to buy two games for two seperate systems. Retarded. I waited since 2008 when GTA 4 dropped. Damn near 5 years for the new one. What happens when that is released on xbox one and is much better than the 360 version? Kind of sucks.

Back to something like Madden 25. That generally drops in late Aug. So the new system come out when? Holiday season? Is that thanksgiving, xmas? If so you will be getting a Madden game extremely late. Thats lame. No backwards compatibility either which also blows ass.

I havent even read much of the used games but the sounds of it is weak. Alot of my games I have on my gamescore was borrowed. I'd borrow games to play/get achievements then return them to my friend. So I wont be able to do this no longer huh?

Finally, any idea of a price? $600?

Xbox supported for a year after the 360 was released and then dropped it. I mean just utterly dropped any new game releases anything. they kept up the live servers (and think the dashboard got an update) but that was it.

There's probably gonna be some difference in load times especially with AC4, and I'd assume GTA 5. Probably some difference with graphics. But it won't be a lot. It'll take awhile for the graphics difference to unfold because no one wants to design a game for the 360 and then go design it for the 1, since you can't easily port it over like that. Although Ubisoft has said there's gonna be no load times whatsoever. So we'll see how that unfolds.

Price/release date we might get at E3. Sony and M$ are gonna play cat and mouse on this and see who releases the info first. Because neither one was to price the thing too high and suffer a loss of sales like PS3 did, and then alienate the market for an extended period of time. But they also don't want to lose too much on the consoles at first. Especially since a lot of people may not upgrade right away.

And the used games thing right now is iffy at best. Expect to be screwed, but pray you're not.
