Who here will be boycotting Xbone?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Who here will be boycotting Xbone?

I have no plans to ever buy the xbone. Most of the 360 games i have played were either borrowed or used. I refuse to have the kinect in my house, i don't want some camera/mircophone watching me or my house 24/7. Some times i go months without signing onto XBL, which i can't do on xbone. I did buy 7 xbox games new and been gold for 3years and have a bunch of arcade titles. If mircosoft doesn't want my money it can go somewhere else.

I also won't be buying a PS4 near launch either, i had 5 60gb PS3's die on me :(

I won't buy it anytime soon. None of the exclusive games they showed interest me at all. I'll be rocking it hard on the PS4/Wii U for the next 10 years.

But maybe I'll get one 6-7 years from now just to add it in my collection.

Oh silly deyon.  We both know that isn't gonna happen. :-p

It will probably happen. collecting is like a hobby to me, bro.

But I vow I will never ever play it.

So do you have a 360 also, but just never play it?



@griffin
I'm curious if the consoles u bought were used... cause you might have been duped in your purchase.. the failure rate of the OG systems this gen is a fairly wide gap between the two...

I play my 360 every week or so.

Xbox 360 is totally different than XBONE. It doesn't have the same shitty policies XBONE has. You should know better >_>

I was gonna get a 360 if the "stingray" rumor was true.  But all we got is a smaller 360 at pretty much the same price!!  Just like what sony did with the super slim.



I would have waited to buy the X1, but Killer Instinct was announced and that was a deal/combo breaker.... :) Reserved.

I can understand why people would want to wait, though...



Everyone needs to play Lost Odyssey! Any opposition to this and I will have to just say, "If it's a fight you want, you got it!"

Got 3 pre-ordered. 2 for me and my lady. 1 for sale on ebay.

I went with 3 others that also pre-orderd it. We all have had internet for years. Maybe it's me but I think this is only a problem for people without money. no offense. Also Google fiber well be around the US in coming years. Once that happens, no one is not going to have internet. I kinda understand why xbox is doing this. The people that buy used really make no money for any of the producers or the company. Game stop was making so much money while great software companies where failing. Who didn't expect this and don't Think Sony is that far behind. Once games feel like they can make more money with xbox, they will go exclusive. I seen this happening years  ago and I don't blame them. I have had internet for around 12 years or atleast the last 10. Also I only have to buy one xbox live subscription for me and my lady.



Why boycott?

The system is gonna sell, people are still gonna buy it. If you dont like the policies....dont buy it. Simple as that.

As for me I'm not buying it - buying Wii-U and PS4.
