Commercials that are tailored to your interests are fine. That's an improvement. Commercials tailored to the conversation you are having right that second are creepy, and if they advance it to making sure you pay attention, that's evil.

I get the feeling that he was "encouraged" to leave MS after what a disaster he started for the XBone. Oh well...

So now the kinect is no longer required to be plugged in for the Xbox One.

 

Just how badly are they losing the "preorder race" anyway? o_o

It's not required to be plugged in... but still required to be bought, which is a pretty cheap move if you ask me.

Apparently lost it so badly, that everyone in Europe who preorders also gets free Fifa 14.

Must really suck for them. But anyways my brother has already preordered PS4.

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc

I know I'm in the minority but I pre-ordered an XBox One for one simple fact. Call of Duty and Call of Duty Championships on XBox One. It comes down to this, COD is a passion of mine and I have a very strong competitive drive. Now while the elite of the elite play on PC, the talent pool is very very small. With the majority of money tournaments being on the XBox in the USA for COD, it draws a much bigger base, thus a larger talent pool, and in the end more competition. I'm also looking forward to Destiny, Halo, and Titanfall. While I know the concerns folks have over the Kinect and the like, it's something I'm taking in stride to enjoy the next-generation of consoles. A PS4 is definitely in my future though, but probably not for about a year until after release.

It's a better launch day line-up than the PS4, you have to concede that.

FIFA 14 for free is a puller in Europe, is more what I was referring to. Obviously not so much in the US. It consistently appears in the charts for sales, throughout the year, so to get it for free is a big deal here.

Microsoft: "Absolutely no plans" to release Xbox One without Kinect

 

By Eddie Makuch, News Editor

 

Phil Spencer squashes possibility of Kinect-less bundle of upcoming next-generation console.

Microsoft has reiterated that it has no plans to release the Xbox One without Kinect.

 

Corporate vice president Phil Harrison told Metro in a new interview that Kinect is a core component of the next-generation console.

 

"Absolutely no plans at all," Harrison said when asked if a Kinect-free bundle may be offered. "We think Kinect is an integral part of our platform. All of the magical experiences that you get, both as a games-player and also the way you navigate the system are made even more amazing because of Kinect."

Harrison said that because every Xbox One console will come with Kinect, developers can design projects for the "widest possible install base."

 

Last week at Gamescom, Harrison said there is no differentiation between Xbox One and Kinect. The two systems are one, he said.

 

"Xbox One is Kinect," Harrison said at the time. "They are not separate systems. An Xbox One has chips, it has memory, it has Blu-ray, it has Kinect, it has a controller. These are all part of the platform ecosystem."

 

Microsoft has said that the Xbox One will launch this November for $499/€499/£429/A$599.

If I end up getting a new console I'm definitely getting an Xbone now. Probably won't be for a year or so though.

If you're implying that a lot of PS4 releases get a PC release too...so do xbox games. Makes no sense to compare PC to either console in that regard. >_>''

Not sure what people expect MS to do about Kinect. It's like asking Nintendo back in 2006 to release a new handheld device with one, touch-less screen, or asking Samsung now to release a new mobile that only calls and texts.

 

I'm no fan of Kinect, especially not the way it's been awkwardly integrated. It's just that asking for its removal is an irrelevant request. If you don't like it, fine, it's not really there for you in the first place, because there's plenty else on offer which is designed to appeal to you. If you disagree with that, get a PS4.

i was mostly joking but from the looks of it not really. zoo tycoon i guess is the only xbox exclusive that's on the pc, compared to 5 ps4 ones.

 

though ps4 definitely looks to have the better exclusives.

Did you happen to work at Microsoft a month or two ago before jumping ship to a different sinking ship of a company? Becuase by that logic, I guess a ton of people are going to get a PS4 then... Since there are very few people that want to spend an extra $100 for something that they won't ever use. That's why people don't like it being forced onto buyers.

 

And what are these other things that are designed to appeal to me? Being able to watch TV on my TV? Not having enough space on my harddrive to download a game I just bought?

Yeah, you're right. I mean, I'm so far up Microsoft's ass on the Xbone that, as you say, "a month or two ago", I posted this:

[hide=]

It hasn't changed my plans for the next gen, and I wasn't going to buy an Xbox One in the first place. There's other issues running against it; it's also £90 more expensive that its closest rival, and the games look like they'll be astronomically priced. Given you're forced to take the Kinect along with it, I'm not sure if I'm getting a decent value for money there. The fact DRM (or lack thereof) is even an issue to be discussed remains an embarrassment for MS while neither Sony or Nintendo were interested in even entertaining the idea.

[/hide]

My point is: Kinect is staying. Like it or lump it. I've decided to lump it, but whining it about as if you secretly want MS to change their mind is a useless expense of time and effort. It's far, far, far too late for MS to possibly go back on the Kinect now, so it's futile even imagining they would. Buy a Wii-U, buy a PS4, buy one of those fancy cards for long-term RS membership... whatever. Move on.

 

Has anyone here actually pre-ordered one system or the other?

Neither. But then apparently I worked at MS a month or two ago, so I don't need to. Job benefits. ;)

Pre-ordered PS4 and Watch Dogs long ago. PS4 pre-orders are now sold out in Europe and NA though. Anyone who pre-orders now has to wait until Batch 2 arrives (unknown arrival date at this point)

I'll probably end up getting a PS4 when I see how colossally Halo 5 falls on its' face haha.

Logged in for the first time in like 11 months just to say that Minecraft is not a PS4 exclusive. It's currently the most sold game on Xbox or something in the last 6 months+? + It's kind of been on PC for a while..

That list was copied from wikipedia at the time, I think. You are of course right. That should be in the PS4 title column (because it will be a title released on the ps4 now that xbox exclusivity has expired).

 

Just a matter of someone putting it in the wrong column and I didn't catch it.
