    Ok, ok. I get that some people like gears, and halo... and gears... did I mention halo? Ok sure, you might want to buy a Xbox One for them. I get that. But why would you willingly put money towards a console that:
    >Forces you to be constantly monitored by Microsoft via the mandatory Kinect 2.0
    >Forces you to pay for multiple people to watch a movie in the same room
    >Never stops recording your audio, even when the console is turned off
    >Will tailor adverts to your interests BASED OFF THE CONVERSATIONS IT RECORDS
    >Will have a paid online fee for accessing your own internet
    >Requires you to connect to the internet once every 24 hours to be able to play games
    >Will not play used games and will always charge you full price for a game
    >Will not be backwards compatible
    >Will not be compatible with current gen headsets or controllers
    >Will deliberately be underpowered in terms of performance
    >Will deliberately focus on other services like NFL, which aren't even available outside the US
    >Will have a controller that requires AA batteries
    >Will not carry over XBL purchases

    I agree Wade, it's bad, real bad. But all this Big Brother talk is a little much, nothing that the Xbox One is going to do is worse than what Google and Facebook already do. lol!

    That does sound bad.

    On the other hand, I think Sony stole my soul so there's always that angle

    I'm a Halo fan and I bought 360 mostly for Halo and few other games, but buying One for Halo?
    Halo 4 was horrible. Gameplay and story wise. That's what happnes when original creators, Bungie in this case, leave their game and somebody else picks up.
    I'm pretty sure Halo 5 and 6 (yeah they said they want a trilogy) will be the same &@%# as 4.
    +
    Live action series?
    Steven Speilberg?
    &#$%@ REALLY?

    I read.
    The console is going to break very often and your warranty won't help you.

    Seriously Microsoft's vice president is detached from reality. 1 billion units in it's entire lifetime? Where the hell has he gotten his statistics? The best selling console is the PS2 selling 155 million after 13 years and that has been discontinued. XBOX sold 24 million, XBOX 360 sold 77.2 million. 1 billion sales is delusional for any console, not just the Xbox One.

    It really depends on how long they plan to support Xbox One. If they plan to sell it for hundred years, boycot PC HW advancment and Sony and Nintendo go bankrupt, they could reach this goal.

    not a xbox fanboy(I have a ps3 because it has the games I like) all but I cant wait for all the people that are talking crap about the new xbox to take all that back once they see I game the really want, it happens all the time. people really should wait till e3 to start trashing the new xbox. I'm getting the ps4 on day one because my favorite series are on that console.

    Not a single time in my life.
    When I say something's s&%t it is and remains that for eternity (video games only).
    Kinda sixth sense if you would, that I developed while working part time as a reviewer.

    There is this ongoing trend to hate on everything, even though you actually like it. I noticed people doing this a lot lately. 'Tis a strange thing indeed.

    yeah, its really weird, people hating on something yet they still buy it, I think it has to do with either peer pressure or just the need to have the latest gadgets. I cant wait for e3 though, there better be a lot of new ips.

    I still don't have a phone with a camera. :/

    Perhaps I'm getting old, but when I see something and it's something that I don't need, I don't buy it.
    I don't need ANY of the features of the Xbox One that has been shown so far. Some of them, mostly voice controls and Kinect are something I never want in my home. If the rumours are true.
    To be fair, I feel the same towards what has been shown about PS4. Only thing keeping me interested are the games and hoping that I will be able to turn all that social nonesense off. If not...then I may end with this gen.
