Should I upgrade my PC or wait?

Wait for what? The second coming of St. Hubbins? For all you know, you'll be a maggoty, fly-blown corpse concealed under some brush by the side of an obscure country road one month from now. Enjoy life while you can. There's no bigger waste of time or of life than sitting and waiting, for no good reason, to do something you really want to do.

They might be waiting for the petition to hit 1 million, then they'll start kicking around the idea of a port.

I doubt that Rockstar will take that petition seriously, or any that have been signed by people named Dick Hertz, Ben Dover and Stu Pitt hundreds of times a piece..

Next gen RPGS. A lot of them!

Sign me up for that as well.

I'd also like to see:

  • Mafia III
  • Portal 3
  • GTA V For next gen systems (W/ upgraded graphics and an extra storyline or two)
  • Far Cry 4
  • The Order 1886
  • Some classic Koei strategy games resurrected (PTO, Genghis Khan, Nobunaga's Ambition, etc.)

They don't need to drop Kinect. They need to eat the 100 dollar loss and sell it for $399. Dropping the Kinect and charging $399 going against a console that is more powerful. Is not a price drop? They must keep the value in the package.

Remember, we're talking about M$ appealing to hardcore gamers here, and hardcore gamers have no use for Kinect. I don't want one, and none of my friends who owned a 360 have bought one primarily because of Kinect and Xbone's subpar specs. M$ is losing this gen so far because they have alienated hardcore gamers, which is why Spencer is now attempting to refocus M$' efforts on winning them back.

Try to employ some logic here. Why do you think the 360 was such a resounding success? Was it because the 360 acted as some kind of half-assed, jack-of-all-trades, swiss-army-knife TV hub, appealing to soccer moms and Nintendo kiddies, or because of its appeal to hardcore gamers? Which group do you think bought more 360's and made it the best selling console for much of the 7th gen? The same formula will work for the Xbone as well. Again, if M$ is really serious about winning back hardcore gamers they'll stop dicking around and offer hardcore gamers what they really want without gimmicks.

You don't have to plug it in? All I said was drop the price as is maintaining the value of the package. While keeping the same ecosystem in place. I never said to focus on the Kinect for gaming. Maybe some games for my kid.

You can sell the Kinect 2 on Ebay all day long for $100 dollars.

If I don't have to plug it in, then M$ doesn't have to include it with my Xbone. Making it an optional accessory, as they should've done all along, is the best way to streamline the Xbone to make it more attractive to hardcore gamers. Hardcore gamers like to go easy and greasy. Just give us the hardware and the games. If your kid (or mine) wants to play Goofy Gus Golf or Rockem Sockem Soccer with his Kinect you can always buy him a Kinect separately.

If they really cared about hardcore gamers they'd offer a bundle that doesn't include Kinect. With Kinect optional, M$ could either drop the price of the Xbone by $100, or leave the price as is and bundle a free one year subscription to Xbox live plus a couple of games. That would definitely suffice in attracting a lot of hardcore gamers, including me.

Amazon because I have Prime and I get better deals.

Same here.

That's a nice selection of games, and definitely worth the price. I can't wait for the PS4 to reach a point where enough games have been released for it and have aged to make flash sales like this one a regular occurrence.
