Oh c'mon guys.  Aren't you grateful that MS is still giving you permission to use the 360?  Show some sppreciation.

how do you figure? the dickwad in the video just stated xbox 360 is not a online console wich means people will be forced to buy xbox one if they want games. do you really think they will keep xbox 360 around for 5 more years for fans? no they wont

Microsoft doesn't like people without internet: they don't pay for xbox live and they don't buy DLC, which are probably the biggest slice of their profits. No wonder they've been telling them to f*ck off for months. Adam Orth first and now this.

If they can keep making money off of it and especially since they are limiting their X1 customers, they just might. Honestly they almost re-sold me on a 360. World of Tanks looks awesome.

Well the 360 is still a system with a vast library of quality games. But the refusal to adjust the pricing scheme for it is a bit, well, assy.

I was saying that in jest.

MS's leadership seems determined to chase gamers away from the Xbone with a stick. Its a shame that the leaders are idiots. Based on the impressive slate of games they showed off at E3, there are a lot of talented game developers whose work is going to go underappreciated because their bosses are incompetent.

DON'T BE MISLEAD! I don't know how much you know about World of Tanks, but it plays NOTHING like what you saw in that video. It revolves around dudes rolling out with their tanks at a bilstering 27KpH, moving into position and waiting. If you ever get that close to your enemy more than once or twice a day, you're doin' it wrong.

The 360 will also have a slew of quality games coming out for it, so just stick with that, really. Games like South Park: SOT or Saints Row IV won't be coming to newer consoles (unless otherwise confirmed by the developers/publishers), so really your best bet is to just keep playing those games on that system and then be ready to start all over with a brand-new system (like how I'll be doing with Sony and the PS4).

I know a product you can buy if you dont have internet connection/you have a slower one - PS4! Enjoy!

That also works! It's also cheaper and more powerful than a Xbone. Win-win situation.

And smaller. :P

I am still baffled by how they managed to make it smaller, especially considering the dont have an external brick like the Xbone.

Don Mattrick looks like someone who has just been diagnosed with chronic anal fissures. He looks all blown out and painfully uncomfortable.

You don't get to play Forza though. :(

Wow! It keeps getting worse:

http://www.gamespot.com/e3/xbox-one-terms-of-service-prevent-class-action-suits-6410038/

So now if you buy an Xbone, you have no chance to partake in a class-action suit over anything. Hmmmmm, I wonder how that would have affected how the company dealt with the RROD?

I honestly wouldn't buy a first-generation Xbox anything just based on going through three consoles in as many years, but to know that they have blocked legal recourse in the event that the Xbone is a lemon too? Fvck that. Who's coming up with all this shlt? To be fair, Sony has this policy as well, but Jesus, would you be so willing to buy new hardware from the same people who released the 360 if they said you had no legal recourse through class-action suits if it takes a shlt on everyone?

I put 500 hours in to FM3 and about 100 less than that into FM4. I love the series, it's fantastic, Turn 10 have delievered with each installment.

But one damn good driving series is not anywhere near enough to outwiegh the amount of BS Microsoft is pulling with the XB1. I'll miss Forza, but I'll survive with GT.

My 60GB PS3 died after two years. Argianas, dvader, rag and Dez's 50GB PS3's suffered the same fate. We were asked $150 extra to fix our $600 console and we couldnt sue because Sony made us sign a similar agreement after the PSN hack. Every company is doing this. Even Valve with Steam. Blame our government for bending over allowing this to happen.

They aren't willing to admit it. Sony has done this for over a year apologizing for the price and the ps3 console. They know they screwed up

I hate this always connected bullsh*t. Do they really expect us to always be connected to the internet?

Will the Xbox One be obsolete when the next Xbox is launched years from now?

#30 Posted by BuryMe (22017 posts) -

So if you don't have internet, stick with a system that's going to have no future support. Great idea. :lol:

[QUOTE="speedfreak48t5p"] You don't get to play Forza though. :(

I consider that a plus. Driving sims are boring as all get out.
