You know what the sad part is? This was Sony last generation. Ludicrous price point, logic out the window, and basically an overabundance of flexing that gave them nothing but grief for years. Difference is Sony was well established and the king of consoles at that point, MS doesn't have that kind of brand loyalty yet. Maybe somewhat, but not like Sony does. This generation is clearly in Sony's favor.

I didn't want the xbone to fail, MS did by doing everything they did.

All of the Sony fanboys that proudly proclaimed "I love PS3 because I can play online for free!" all of the sudden don't mind at all that they have to pay. I still liked what One had to show more. But in the end all this "This one is better" crap won't mean anything. It'll be like last time and they'll sell about the same.
Dude....not even remotely.

MS has been doing it for 7 years....I guess Sony couldn't take everything away from them.

Better than what? Almost nothing shown was Xbox One exclusive. It's all either PS4 or PC as well. And Sony hasn't even started their presentation.

You're comparing apples to... invisible apples? No shit the apples look better. You can see them.
There's also that rumor floating around about how MS paid off numerous companies to keep multiplatform games shown as xbox only. So outside of exclusives, we may not see any ps4 multiplatform crap. I mean....MGSV being shown during the xbox conference? Something smells fowl.

I would have taken that photo far more seriously if his pinky were extended while holding that pipe.

What a FABULOUS username.
Couldn't resist.

Hey everyone! Quick question... I want to add all you fine folks as friends on PSN and 3ds and maybe even Xbox (well those of you who posted your tags/id's in the respective thread). What is the proper conduct for doing so? Do I need to message everyone individually first? Add and THEN message everyone....? Do I even need to message anyone.....

I'd hate to ruin our budding and blossoming cyber-friendship before its truly begun...
Unless your handle is something we don't recognize, generally the request is fine. Otherwise, just mention in your friend request who you are.

@Aeolus Yeah, but the PS3 came out when people actually had jobs and shit. $500 in this economy is asking a lot, given the ample number of alternatives to the Xbone that didn't exist when the PS3 came out.
That price tag won't dissuade anyone, considering the original xbox 360 was 400 bucks. This includes the kinect hardware, so 500 bucks is easily acceptable. If anything, it sounds to be a respectable buy for a launch console. Now if they went for the 600+ marker, I'd have written MS off for good, this gives them at least a foothold for this generation coming. If Sony unveils their system at anything under 500 though, consider Xbox One boned for good.

The euro price tag however...yeah, MS is the Sega of the US now in terms of not giving a fuck about anyone elsewhere.

Xbox 360 was and still is a piece of shit. It's just that enough the broken and fucked consoles got circulated out that it's only a piece of shit now, not a fucking xboned.

Fuck Sega, this is lame now. Bring the fucking game to the english-speaking playerbase already.

Its going to be an interesting ride over the next few years.

"Interesting" is not the most appropriate word if you ask me...

I'd prefer MS get things right and advance gaming to new levels, not fuck shit up to new lows.

I've never honestly seen Microsoft interested in gaming. And I don't know how is there people out there still giving them the benefit of the doubt after all of this.
I'm not giving them the benefit of the doubt, as the red ring fiasco established my dislike of MS in general. I'm simply saying that hoping for their imminent failure does nothing for any of us. If they fail, they go down kicking and screaming, pulling many people down with them. I'd rather see progress made over obvious failures.

I'm thinking right now, all Sony has to do is just release their system as an upgraded PS3 with nothing new outside of possible 4k support for game titles in the future (though I believe they already said no to that), and they will have successfully destroyed MS this next generation. Microsoft's could save themselves if they dropped the system cost to fucking beans and just charged monthly fees for everything. Imagine a premium package service for xbone with full video on demand, sports on demand, and games for something like 30 bucks a month? Honestly, I could accept that as a solid service. 1 million people paying for said service a month, that's 30 mil a month. It's not too shabby on paper.

Most of the bitching about the used game shit is just because of pricing. This would solve that problem. Drm arguements would be alleviated, as it's established that it's a membership based service. Kinect's "always online" is still a problem, but meh. To be honest, I'd prefer MS get things right and advance gaming to new levels, not fuck shit up to new lows.

Being that 3 left the most disgusting of tastes in my mouth, never played 4. Doubt I could beat 4 in a week either, given I have 2 or 3 installs this week and Man of Steel AND The last of Us...

Cheer section it is.

Also, can we have some activity in the irc channel, even if it's the quiz channel? I enjoy babbling with you guys on a less formal medium.

Aren't steam games like dirt fucking cheap? Also, isn't steam a free to use service on existing PCs? Meaning no membership fees?

You all know that in order to use the cloud gaming service, you're gonna be paying for xbl gold. Yeah it's only 5 bucks a month, but now that's added to the game cost, which is still going to be 60 dollars per title. Another point, aren't pc titles generally 10-20 dollars cheaper than console variants?

Long story short steam wins because it isn't a massive ripoff.
