1 The Xbox One: Pros and Cons on Fri May 24, 2013 7:38 am

Well, whats to say?

After watching Microsoft’s Xbox One unveil yesterday, I came away with one overwhelming impression: Redmond doesn’t understand its audience anymore. If the company is going to fix this mess it’s just made for itself, it’s going to need the best damned E3 in the history of video gaming. The problem with the Xbox One launch isn’t that the features Microsoft announced are bad, rather it’s the ocean of things Microsoft didn’t say.

Microsoft showed us some nifty capabilities (voice commands, fast task switching), and some tidbits on how the Windows kernel and Xbox operating system have been cross-leveraged to create a different product. That’s all well and good. What the company utterly failed to demonstrate, however, was any compelling narrative as to why I should want to put one of these systems in my living room next year.

yes, the Xbox One can seamlessly switch between content, but why would I shove the TV content over by a third of the screen when I can pick up my smartphone and surf to IMDb or Wikipedia if I have a question? Try doing the former with a significant other (or at least with my significant other). It won’t end well. Skyping on the TV is nice, but it’s not a feature I’ll probably never use.

Another Shitty thing going on is the proposed "fee"; where you have to buy a code to activate your purchase. So in other words, if your freind wants to borrow the game, they have to buy another activation code (same price as the last code) to play it on the Xbox.And worse off, PS4 may use the same activation code Shit.


Quoting Microsoft vice president Phil Harrison: " The bits that are on that disc, you can give it to your friend and they can install it on an Xbox One,They would then have to purchase the right to play that game through Xbox Live"


Ah well, back to PC for me.

Sony is too cool to charge its users for such a thing. And that's just a rumor. I don't hate the Xbox and am not a Sony or PS3 fanboy but goddamn. JUST LOOK AT THE THING. Its like a Phillip CD-I had sex with a toaster and gave birth to that. Also there's absolutely no backwards compatibility. PS4 won't have this but come on Microsoft, if the console is meant to "meet all our entertainment and gaming needs in one system" then let me pay Halo 1 on the thing.

Sure the features are neat but why is it that a system designed to be a custom gaming pc has components found in that of the everyday laptop?

Needless to say, it looks useless. PC Gaming is better as it always will be. Let us see what Sony has to reveal.

When it comes to consoles, Sony is better imo. Microsoft just need more money, because they're obviously not rich enough..

I can finally say Xbox One has no games. Why? Because it doesn't.
