Forums - Gaming Discussion - Ex Xbox supporters post in thread...

I understand the reasoning to not care for the XBox One, but before not giving it a chance consider the following.
- We don't know how awesome the games are.
- If you don't buy used, anti-used does not effect you outside of the occasional lending of games, if that even effects you.
- If you have a stable internet connection, you'll be fine.
- We don't know the price of the system.
- All systems come with Kinect integrated, but it is entirely up to developers to take advantage of the Kinect. The core controller is still there, and as good as ever.

Yes there are a lot of negative things going around (anti used, always online to an extent, too much TV focus) but MS has already said that E3 will be all about the games. So just wait a few more weeks before deciding if you want one or not.



It's just that simple.

US of A, gladly watch European soccer leagues on Xbox ESPN app. Plus other interesting sports every week for $3.92(+-) a month. I'm a cheap student and I don't like cable in its whole.

That's perfect for me.



What does "In its whole" mean? You know you still need to pay for cable right? The box needs to connect to the XBone if you want to make use of the TV feature. It's not standalone. It is mearly an overlay.

Yep, I'm probably gonna shy away from the One. I don't have use for the HDMI-passthru, as my "gaming" TV is not my living room TV. I can't make non-gamers set thru my 12 hour gaming sessions on the main TV.

Also, I hate the fact that you need an internet connection to register your games. Would prefer a DRM free market.

Finally, don't like the fact that their most recent presser was so casual focused, seems like its not being marketed towards me. I'll work with PC/Playstation for the time being, plenty of games to keep my happy.

Seece and Zen both back within a 24-hour period? Seriously, WTF is going on around here?

Hah! I find that the big pressers tend to bring the nuts out of the woodwork. D=

Don't put yourself down like that.

Fan of xbox original and my 360, but hating everything about xone.

LOL!! I actually liked that gif.

But in all seriousness, you couldn't have been much of a fan if you don't wait for the rumors to settle/E3. Very short-sighted.

I am not a fanboy for sure I am glad you would notice. I have written several posts here and on GAF that refer to the fact I have not completely wrote the xone off. But everything so far puts it behind a high end PC, and PS4 as far as my next gen preference goes. I have long thought MS to be anti-consumer and have a lot of reasons I think they should not be the leader in the console industry.



Count me out Microsoft.

I'm not into getting arse raped by corporations.

Even the whisper of DRM is enough to turn me away.

Weird how all your currently played games are PS3 games, what with you being an xbox fan boy that jumped ship yesterday.

Sony fanboys are more up in arms than Xbox fans. Me personally I'm waiting on a better explanation of everything before I make up my mind. Most likely I will get Xbox One. Day One.

Can I ask why? What makes the Xbox One a Day 1 purchase for you? 

ESPN, 15 a la Microsoft exclusives, Rare and Halo.

That's enough for a student and an outgoing person like me. Everything they said was appealing to me.

Everything else is just speculation that people are blowing out of proportion. E3 is gonna decide if I'm gonna continue with my decision.

I'm happy so far.

So the fee for playing used games doesn't affect you at all? It doesn't even bother you?

What about their push for entertainment and TV services over gaming? You don't feel like they're pushing gamers aside?

15 exclusives 1rst year. I don't know how many from EA but just for the first year we'll see Fifa, UFC, Battlefield, possibly ME. Activision is coming out blasting. Ubisoft samething.

A box coexisting TV and game seems natural to me. And as for the the fee thing MJ Nelson says the policies are still being churned.

I'm a patient guy...

These games are all coming to PS4 as well.

You still didn't answer the question about entertainment services taking priority over gaming. It doesn't bother you?

Can I also ask what country you are from and what cable/satellite provider you have?

As a whole. A lot of channels are pure crap.

I don't know about that, I watch ESPN just with my internet connection. Same with Manga.



Do you have fun playing a console different than mine?

DON'T!!!

Well, I agree that a lot of channel are pure crap. I only use cable for sports myself.

 

Don't know about what, that it requires a cable box? It is true. Not sure if the XBone has the ESPN app anymore though, I would need to look into that, but it doesn't seem as though it would considering the box itself is now a cable box overlay.

Much info still needs to be clarified.

 

Edit - Cut your quote trees. I was just moderated for quoting your before and not cutting it down. It is a new rule.

So Many MS supporter are asking to wait till E3.. what the hell is going to happen at E3. I MDF don't understand that majority of the current xbox gamer have a problem with the DRM and online stuff, and that is not going to go away by announcing games at E3..

even If they come out and say we are dropping DRM (which they can do it now too), who's to say they wont reinforce it in the near future as they have the system in place for.

I am kinda, i dont really like much of the new xbox one from what i have seen but sure im willing to wait but for me so far both PS4 and XOne will be waiting awhile for me to buy them just like the WiiU PC FTW
