    To me the sad part is that PS3 failed due to sony trying to market it as home entertainment system/blu ray crap alienating gamers and now MS is doing the same mistake.

    He sounds like your average 'broom-up-yer-arse-english-man' :confused:
    that's one of the least inoffensive ways to speak IMO...




    and don't give me that 'but you speak German you wouldn't hear a difference' crap... ;)

    Woo woo, retarded design decision train, slowly derailing over the station. This makes so little sense from a hardware perspective, I'm sure it can't be true.

    for me it'll come down to exclusives to determine which is the better of the 2 evils.

    It'll be the same exclusives they've always had. Only this time there will be enough graphical detail to the the sweat on Kratos's balls and you might almost make out a face behind Master Chief's BMX helmet visor.

    From a marketing perspective, first and foremost, it would have been nice to see this presented as a monster gaming rig - I mean really hammer home the message that the new XBox is a smoking hot video game platform - then layer in the other features as gravy as well- not the other way around.
    It doesn't help that the hardware from a form factor perspective looks terrible - I mean seriously, it just looks like the worst designed piece of hardware ever created - a true brick.
    If Sony come up with a drop dead gorgeous design, put the social element and TV crap to one side and throw in some killer game demos - they will clean up at E3.

    It is true. http://mashable.com/2013/05/21/xbox-ones-new-controller-hands-on/

    From the page, On the front of the new controller, you’ll find an IR sensor. It allows it to communicate with the Xbox One’s new Kinect controller. While Microsoft didn’t go into great detail about how this will be used in gameplay, it does add one interesting feature. Imagine there are two people playing in front of an Xbox One. The Kinect knows, via facial recognition, who they are. It also knows, thanks to the IR sensors, who is holding which controller. If the two players switch controllers, they do not start controlling each other’s characters. Instead, Xbox One sees that they are each holding different controllers and communicates with the controllers through Kinect to switch player controls.

    If it turns out to be hackable and an homegrown scene appears, I'll buy one

    Surely if you switch controllers with your friend, it's because you wanted to switch. What kind of stupidity is this!? D:

    Unless Sony pulls outta their ass the Holy Grail and pours forth unto us the promised land of gaming I'm saving my money for important things and sticking to my PC. I was thinking about getting an XBox One but with this Microsoft has done a fine job of talking me outta it.

    Given that rumours persist that the hardware isn't ready due to a big flaw with video memory, this is more or less the case....

    This connection that's needed every 24 hours. It's BS. I just can't believe Microsoft would be this stupid. Now, there's only two ways I'm gonna buy the stupid thing.

    1. If Microsoft releases a patch to render single player games playable offline indefinitely.
    2. If someone figures out how to hack it to be able to play always offline.

    Until one of these is done, I will be going to my nearest local electronics store, laughing while purchasing a PS4 and flipping off the Xbone every chance I get.
