Microsoft reverses stance on XboxOne

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

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.

 

 

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.

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.

 

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

Your guess is wrong.  Anybody on here knows I game on Xbox and have since the first Xbox.  I bought and stuck with Xbox because I liked what it offered versus the playstation.  Now the situation is getting reversed and I'm seeing Playstation as the better deal for me.  I'm not going to stick with a company if they aren't meeting what I want or need...that would make me a fanboi.

Guess I just don't understand why a Kinect would make you not want the Xbox.  I think Xbox has the better games and the better ceiling (in regards to cloud gaming and technology).  I'm willing to pay $100 more for it.  Granted, I'm not buying any console for at least 6 months until I see how the bugs are getting fixed and by then prices may be lowered.

 

PS4 looks nice too but I think the Xbox is bringing a lot more to the table.
