I just checked out a Watch Dogs gameplay video on Youtube. Looks like a mix of Assassin's Creed and GTA. >_>

You're probably better off with it than I am then. Doesn't look hugely unique to me, but then again how many games are these days?

By the way get GTA V when it's released. You're missing out, hombre.

so microsoft has confirmed the 24 hour check thing and the no used games thing and lots and lots of other bullshit. so once microsoft shuts down the xbone servers 20 years after the generation is over, it'll be impossible to go back and play your old games nostalgically because it won't be able to do the online drm check thing. your xbox one games will be lost forever.

xbox one is going to make the launch of the segway look successful.

I like the 24 hour check thing because it keeps my game ownership secure. As well as used games because I like my money going to the developers to make new games that I love not leeches piggybacking off the hard work & development of others.

Read these two things yesterday:

This is on the kinect's always on ability: http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2013/06/06/microsoft-addresses-xbox-one-privacy-concerns.aspx


Some more stuff on the controller: http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2013/06/06/microsoft-reveals-more-xbox-one-controller-tech.aspx

The system also determines when players aren't using the controller – such as while they're watching a movie or have left the room – and will put it in a low-power mode.


Really the only important thing in the controller article

Sadly, there are actually people who feel this way.

A lot of people are saying Microsoft's big guns will be at E3... I'm not buying it.

At this point everyone's pretty much looking at Sony. All Sony has to do is shrug their shoulders and say "I dunno what the hell they're doing over there, we're gonna make games" and the PS4 will sell tons of units.

It just blows my mind that they could just be coming off the 360, which is known for great games, and make a system with the focus on games becoming almost a minor aspect.

Well the whole reason Microsoft had their pre-E3 conference was to get all the hardware nonsense out of the way. That way their actual E3 conference can be full non-stop games. You'd hope.

If they got Steel Batallion to actually work this time round, I'd be fully on board. Hell, even if they got voice controls to work perfectly i.e. allowing me to access stuff without interfering with gameplay, I'd say it served its purpose

If people can go back and preserve MMO worlds that have been shut down ages ago, and which only immersed a small section of the population, they can cut through DRM that affects a sizeable population

I think I am looking at this pretty objectively, because I quit gaming a while ago. I sold all my games when I started to feel that creativity and boundary pushing in the game market became uninspired and second place to selling gimmicky bullshit. And that was with the supposed king of creative integrity, Nintendo. I've never been a huge fan of Sony or Microsoft as a result, although I've both respected them for different things. Both the PS series and Xbox series have had some great advantages and some sad setbacks. But by the looks of it, Microsoft has slowly been slipping away, following Nintendo's footsteps, only with added restrictions, technical limitations, and lack of desirable features. If I were anticipating buying one of these new consoles, I have no idea why I wouldn't purchase a PS4 instead of this new piece of garbage Microsoft is pushing.

What scares me most is that they have fewer exclusive titles than PS4, and how many of those titles are going to be dumb Kinect games? Oh, I'm really looking forward to Kinectimals 2.

I can see the benefit of Kinect voice controls in games but if you don't want to use it it becomes a useless feature that's required to have. I don't want to talk out loud to Siri, I don't want to talk out loud to Google Glass, and I don't want to talk out loud to my Xbox. It's so douchechilly.

Speaking to a lot of people I know, a lot of them still want the Xbox over the PS4, purely because "h3i microsoft haf betr onlyn survuhz n u get cod hmu if u agre". I have both a PS3 and a 360 right now, so it honestly doesn't bother me that this looks like it'll be a steaming heap of shite.

Has anyone ran tests on this or something? It seems to differ from person to person to me, so I'm starting to wonder if it's just 360 owners trying to justify paying a subscription for multiplayer.

I much prefer the 360 for multiplayer. Cross game chat, party chat, more players, more reliable connection (though seems to vary a little by game), and I just like the 360 controller way more for shooters.

I dunno you can get a year of Gold for $35 on Amazon. That's like $3 a month

Wouldn't that limit the future Xbox then? Sure, Microsoft could add in more servers, but the Xbox One will permanently take up so much space.

Sorry, I don't follow. What do you mean space and why would it take up so much?


Also, Microsoft doesn't want backwards compatibility because they think that idea is backwards. Apparently, very few people would ever utilize the feature so they threw out the idea for Xbox One. Sounds like they would easily ditch backwards compatibility for the next Xbox as well.

They don't want backwards compatibility because there are hardware incompatibility that will interfere with design. Much easier to start again with a clean state. The article doesn't even touch upon overarching structural problems such as the 100 friend on the early xbox's to 1000 friends on the Xbone, which will in turn, affect multiplayer gameplay (if they were to allow compatibility). The Don Mattrick rhetoric is obviously them not wanting to address more questions

Regardless, the premise of the argument is presuming that there is a console after this.

I was waiting till E3 so Microsoft could sort out all the rumors & "misleading" articles but after they confirmed all the used game & connection issues, I'm going to use the money I was going to spend on an XBone and put it towards a new graphics card even though I just bought one 3 months ago.

Unless they announce some major XBone exclusive or say that the Kinect will be used to gauge whether the person playing is under 18 and lock them out of M-Rated online games, I'll pass.

Necroreply, but I don't like them

The gameplay and the whole bashing and life of crime literally gives me a headache

The only reason I'm interested in that game I mentioned is because of the gameplay. It looked a bit more stealthy when i saw it last, minus the gun fight in the end.

Last time I tried a GTA game I was in the peek of my adolescence and even in that violent mindset, it put me off

True, if they never have another system, this is useless talk. And what I was attempting to say (which, keep in mind, may not actually make sense) is that if Microsoft continues to support the X1, I'm assuming the servers that X1 uses will always and only be used for the X1. Meaning they will need to keep and maintain servers for as long as they physically can. That and those servers could never be used for the system after the X1. I don't know if that makes sense.

For backwards compatibility, that article was definitely made a better argument for not allowing it. However, the issue still is that Microsoft won't allow any form of BC due to the low number of people they feel will use it. I just really want to know how they got those numbers.

Or I dunno, it just seems like some games run faster than others on all platforms. I dont know enough about networking or servers or whatever the hell that shit is to make a good argument.
