Haha, wow. All those quotes are gold!

They are foolish. Or maybe I am. Maybe the Xbox will sell in droves. I can't predict people's buying habits any better than Pachter.

That's fine, but tell us the advantages then. Show us.

Jason Rubin on Bonus Round Live summed it up perfectly when he agreed that the current model needs to change, but said Microsoft is doing it with a stick and without the carrot.

I expect Xbox One games to be cheaper than their PS4 counterparts as a result of the new model. If not, then epic fail.

I might be going against the tide on this one, but I am genuinely excited for the Xbox One. Will be getting both consoles anyway, but I think the new Xbox has amazing potential.

Anyway, as always, it will come down to how well the developers create games that use its unique features.

Or how about some games are online required if they are online required to play, but do away with the DRM BS? Seriously MS, just put an "Internet required for this title" label on certain games.


Oh, thats right, this about control and money, not consumer benefits.

So, he was basically going to make second class citizens out of people who don't want to have to connect to the internet just to play their single player games or didn't have reliable connections? Just because they couldn't be connected and funnel money into their pockets 24/7? Ok.

I loved MS during the original and the early to mid-360 years. Such a shame to see where they've ended up now.

Oh well, Sony at least knows how to talk to us. Even if they are just a money hungry corporation with shareholders to please.

I don't think he understands how the internet works in certain parts of the world. My connection is spotty at best.
Xboxone would be a bad investment for me, and I live in Ohio.
Europe is already out with that ridiculous price.
Japan doesn't give a fuck about xbox.

So you're telling me I can't play those next-gen games if I don't have internet because of "cloud power" but I can play them on PS4? Fuck off.

What blows my mind more is the people who defend this. Mattrick is splurting bullshit because he has to, it's his job. It's fine to be fans of MS. I've got an Xbox 360 with over 80 games, but this has really brought out the arrogance and ignorance of people.
