So long as I'm required to pay for Kinect, I will never buy an X1.
Don't want it, never did.
Take it out of the box.
50GB for a game... wouldn't even fit on a Wii U Premium LOL. Just tells me it won't be getting multiplatform titles of next gen games.
Love her last stupid remark - way to fan that troll war.
Buying both but the ps4 is most certainly going to be my backup system. Only 2 launch exclusives worth having and not having tv integration relegates it to a game only system.
MS should just stop pressing the Kinect, It's obvious people don't like it, so just stop pressing it and stop talking about all the stuff it can do that really just freaks people out.
Quick search on google
I'm not sure how reliable it is (as are all polls), but 230 k votes have been given.
Microsoft is falling into the same trap as Sony with the PS3.
Xbox One is designed as a console/multimedia systeam (same as PS3)
In addition, it is more expensive (Thats Huge!) than its antagonist.
Also Xbox One is debutting in 13 countries (http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2013/09/xbox-one-launches-in-13-countries-on-november-22/)
while PS$ is debutting in 32 countries (http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2013/08/playstation-4-will-launch-in-north-america-on-november-15/
Main reason is that Microsoft hasnt finalized the cable deals in the other countries
Poll results are to be expected.
You can't go off of that poll. Look at the difference in people from areas of the country that voted for Obama and ones that voted for Romney. The far west and the North East voted for Obama while Romney won the rest. Polling a specific group of people doesn't tell you the outcome of sales worldwide. I will be buying 2 PS4s at launch and I believe the PS4 to be the best choice.
shocking. Another GS article filled with mentally deficient drones repeating the same old tired lines.
I heard Xbox one will have a feature where next they scan youre fingerprint and then take a blood sample which you submit to microsoft for extra points!!!
1300 people is actually a pretty good sample size. All that matters is that the sample fairly represents the population.
Frase is phrase in spanish. Maybe that person is spanish speaking and wrote frase. So technically, if that was the case, he did not write it wrong. However, if that person doesn't speak spanish, then a shout out to him/her. :)
The whole "Kinect is going to spy on me" thing is just a load of garbage, if you have a smart phone then the government can already spy on you through the camera and hear conversations of everyone in the room, so give me a break and take another drink of that haterade
To make the Kinect oblivious of you, just gonna put a tape on it, and stuff the microphone if it has it somewhere. I myself I'm not gonna even bother with M$ console ever.
I'm wait till they make GTA V for PC, if they won't make one, no loss for me, as I don't care really that much.
I'm one of those few not playing GTA and problably will stay that way for a while, tyvm.
Killzone is huge! I'm buying PS4 games on disc format only, my internet can't handle that may bytes!
I would not discredit that poll so soon. I think it is pretty spot on. Most gamers will not jump to the next-gen consoles simply because they don't have to. Most games will come out on our good old PS3s/360s so why bother? And the PS4 being slightly ahead is a consequence of MS's fantastic job of making a mess on their announcements.
'NSA box' pretty much sums up my feeling about the always-on mic and cam that is the Kinect. I'd figure a competitive industry like this would not allow for companies to be so wildly out of touch with public sentiment, but then again maybe M$ know exactly what they're doing. Perhaps they're not so much insensitive so much as DELIBERATELY targeting the silent majority with this one. You know the type: 'Nothing to hide, good sir, please, feel free to read my mail, tap my phone, heck, why don't you give my mom a full rectal examination while you're at it?' Aka sheeple. Satan knows there's a lot of people out there who can't even function without the idea that someone, somewhere is watching them.
Not playing GTAV. I gave Lone Survivor - The Director's Cut top priority. But Rain is out tomorrow as well. So much indie goodness...
His voice is much more calm. IMO Jess' voice is kind of high pitched and annoying. There, I said it
@Bugermeister 5 Likes now; I guess we found all 6 of us :)
@Bugermeister I don't own GTA 5 either. More interested in getting Need For Speed Most Wanted platinum at the moment.
@Bugermeister Never got around to buying it.
@Bugermeister I thought I was all alone.
@greenaj I heard that you can't because the only way to turn the Xbone on or off is through voice command.
@Xalaze On a sidenote, its is to be expected.
Most gamers wont care for Kinnect, let alone pay 100 dollars more for it.
Furthermore Xbox One 13 country debut VS PS4 32 country debut further tips the scale in PS4 favor.
But the real question is how many will buy the new generation consoles?
@angryguy77 butthurt that your american piece of crap consoel is getting owned so far ?
well get used to it since it wont change once both consoles are released.
@radikel that is a lot of puff and passing.
@CroutonOfDEATH yeah 1300 hundred is more than enough as long as they sample was properly randomized.
@UNCStriker88 Some people just don't want the stupid thing in front of their T.V. for the next ten years.... We also don't want to be engaged in a game just to have the game say "SWING YOUR ARMS, HIT THE TARGET, YOU ARE THE CONTROLLER!" No thanks. People arn't haters that don't want it... The are called people with a different opinion... (Yes, people have different opinions than you... sorry)
@maitkarro I plan on buying both consoles. However, I am not a fan of Kinect with MS record for allowing the NSA to have backdoor to their software. It sucks that the Xbox 1 may not do well this cycle, they had some cool ideas.
@Toplinkarsux 2 b u lol rofl lmao
@Gue1 That's not true, MS has said that you can play the xbone without the kinnect if you wish.
@pacifistay Yea, seriously, why would anyone want new technology that does new things, I just want some better graphics and keep everything the same, gah I just want to protest new technology because I don't want it...quite an argument you have there
@AlwaysRunning @pacifistay Obviously technology is only going to appeal to certain customers, the new Xbox is specifically targeting individuals that have things like Directv and TWC. If you aren't interested then shutup and go away because your opinion does not matter. I'm not out commenting and dissing Iphones because I have no interest in Apple products. Talk about a no nonsense argument
Like @pacifistay said, I don't want the Kinect, I don't want the PSeye, I don't want a tablet controller. Technology for the sake of technology is not a good enough reason. We don't find these technologies to have redeeming values that make them worth our time, money and shelf space. The same thing with more processing power and a slightly tweaked controller is *exactly* what we want. That's what we've always wanted, from the ColecoVision until today! Even the glorious PC master race just wants better graphics and more processing power as the years pass.
We tried what the Kinect has to offer during the current generation, across every console, and we didn't like it. Making a more advanced version of something we already don't like is pretty stupid. Though Microsoft have admitted the Kinect is mainly there for advertising purposes, anyway, so this whole argument is moot. They'll force it on us because it will make them money, and we're picking up the tab for their plan. Just super.
