The Kinect is still a problem for me, although I was hoping they'd keep the rest and go the steam route and offer weekly sales to make the DRM not a big deal. People on Steam don't care about the DRM anymore because of all the sales. 

 

 

I wasn't getting a Xbox one at launch because I wanted to make sure they were going to have the sales before jumping aboard.

I started out with the ps one. Then ps2, moved to the xbox 360, bought a ps3. I'm now going back to the Playstation solely because of the price. Before it was because of all the bull MS wants to RAM down our throats and this whole "elitist" demographic they are trying to create by their initial plans. I love the xbox 360 but I'm not paying 500 dollars for that system. Some may say $100 isn't much savings but when you're not making dollars, you tend to be frugal. Ms has rubbed me the wrong way as of late. The PS4 has so much going for it.

I actually like the idea of dumping used games, I think MS fuged up by not going further and eliminating physical discs. The Steam model is the way to go.

I would rather see the money spent on used game sales go to the developer

if they do that though they would need to substantially drop the prices on their games like on steam and they won't do that so it doesn't matter

Dropping the price in the months after a game comes out is profit-maximizing 101

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.

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.

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

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

 

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

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.

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
