That's only a very small hardcore minority though.

^actually I was shocked yesterday when one of my friends who is not a gamer AT ALL started a conversation with me about how the new Xbox is going to be bad and what is MS thinking.... This whole thing is blowing up beyond just hardcore guys now.



I didn't watch the video.. I assume that as a MS exec, he answered that people should go out and buy a PS4 instead?

Here's the thing.

5 of the games shown are only possible with cloud processing. So you have to have a connection to enjoy the next generation of ai etc.

If all you want is 360 and ps3 with better graphics get ps4.

Ifnyou want more than pretty graphics get xbox one.

It makes sense that if micosoft want to make a product that caters to take advantage of new tech and it so happens to be using an online connection so be it.

For someone like me who has a great internet connection I am only interested in xbox one.

Forza 5s ai for example is impossible on ps4. Impossible.

I understand that some won't be able to experience that part of the next generation. Unfortunate, but you will within 2 years.

After all its ironic that people are posting about needing an internet connection whilst sharing thismwith us via an internet connection.

Ps4 just isnt as next gen as I was hoping. What happens in 3 years to ps4? When xbox one is doing wonderful things with cloud processing. Internet will be even better and ps4mwill begin to look weak because it only offers visuals.


They really sold you on dat cloud huh?

Nah....he told them to basically just stick with or get a 360 instead....

Before Xbox, Mattrick had served in a variety of leadership positions at EA. It kinda feels like the Xbox brand is being ran like EA right now, don't you guys agree?

How long is Don Mattrick going to keep his job I wonder.

I am may prefer the PS4 but I am also interested in what Microsoft has to offer.....but yeah....this post stood out forme too. They REALLY did sell him on that cloud. Hopefully it works out the way he is envisioning it because it will be a HUGE step in the future of gaming.

Glad to see all Sony's themed signatures are going for the PS4 then instead :)
I'm pretty sure the majority of them does not have an internet access anyway... oh wait...
