I don't care how cheap steam is, it'll never get to the point where you can get games for $1 a piece like I have at flea markets and certain websites.

 

there are plenty of shitty games that go on sale for 1$

 

but for AAA titles you're gonna have to pay 5$

I don't see why Kinect would be a deal breaker for anyone?  Because it will be on ALL Xbox consoles the developers can integrate with it much better.  I think it has a lot of potential.

 

Gamers who choose to connect to the internet regularly should still reap the benefit of having "cloud based" games.  

 

Kinect is a deal breaker, because a lot of people, like me, don't want it, don't care for it, don't need it.  I really can't stress this enough...I don't want a Kinect, I will not use the Kinect, I don't like having to pay for a Kinect.

Why not?  Physical discs are the past, they only serve to unnecessarily increase costs. 

 

Downloading games is a great idea...unfortunately a lot of people in the world don't have high speed internet.  Hell even in the States some people don't.  I know it's not even offered in my area (no cable, no DSL).  I have to use Verizon Homefusion and that has a 30 GB/month cap (well actually that's the top tier plan and I pay extra for that). The 30 GB plan is the most they offer right now.  Most games are anywhere between 1 GB and 5 GB.  Next gen games will be even more.

But the point is, you would use it because it will be built into most games.  

 

I get saying you wouldn't want to play "Wii type Kinect games" but the thing will bring a new aspect to gaming if used right.

 

My guess is if the Kinect wasn't included you would still have a reason to hate on Xbox.

True, and I assume thats why Sony and MS decided to stick with discs for another generation.  But times are changing and as online services expand people are going to start demanding more bandwidth. 

 

This is like when Netflix announced they were separating their physical discs from their streaming stuff- people were upset at the prospect of paying more.  Then everyone realized that they only streamed shows and movies anyway and nobody cared anymore

anyone that purchases a next gen xbox after the way they've treated their consumers deserves what they get...which is a bunch of 12 year olds screaming sexual/gender/racial slurs into their microphone

They don't care, they're going to shove it down your throat anyway.  I've already seen articles about how xbox users need to embrace it as the 'future of gaming'.  MS has an army of people going on social media propping up whatever they want.  

 

These console wars amuse me.  I just sit back and laugh while playing my $10 copy of minecraft that gets constantly updated.

I'm always going to prefer to have physical copies of things. I've bought things during Xbox Live sales and it's nice to have several games on my hard drive ready to play at any time but I still prefer having actual disks. 

 

 

Plus the entire PC gamers acting like they're superior to everyone else is incredibly annoying.

They said the same thing about the original kinect, and it sits on most peoples shelves collecting dust.  Motion gaming just isn't that great unless you're a kid.  Sorry, doesn't matter how they attempt to incorporate it into a game, I'm still going to face the thing at my wall (since it has to be plugged in at all times to use the console), and game with my controller....

Stop the Steam nonsense, it's clearly a better deal than any console will ever offer.  Just wait till the summer sale and see how many great titles you can get for MUCH cheaper than the console version.

do you know how many games I've damaged, lost, loaned out and never gotten back since I made the switch to steam?

 

exactly none

 

and pc gamers don't act like we're superior to everyone else because we are superior to everyone else

 

this is just another instance of you talking about something you're clueless about
