predicted this months ago, though didn't think they would react so soon. looks like microsoft has undone every decision it made at this point. talk about a company with no vision or selling point for their platform... what a mess. you can kiss kinect support goodbye... no one in their right mind will waste time and resources on it now (not that anyone cared before either).
I've had the Xbox One since I acquired the Titanfall bundle in March. The kinect is useful and silly at the same time, I love turning it on with the tv simultaneously just by saying "Xbox On". I would like to see the cable tv Guide integration in Canada but that will have to wait. It doesn't bother me that i paid what i have for the XB1 since it came with titan fall.
I just want to see more games released, but it's the launch year. I am sure having the XB1 and PS4 at the same price point opens more options for people to choose instead of just defaulting to the PS4 because it was $100 cheaper, that was the case and microsoft was losing marketshare after 6 months in the market? Anyway lesson learned during the first year. I hope Indy developers are still coming on board to both platforms. I don't dislike the PS4 either both platforms have great exclusive games. I own a Xbox 360 & PS3 so I'm not in one camp or the other, it's just what i want first. I have to say the media centre hdmi passthrough did intrigue me and i'm looking forward to the next Halo as well. PS games i can wait for :p
I'm just happy that I did not jump into the next gen crazy wagon... I love my 360 and my PS3 and still have plenty of games that I want to play on both, seeing the limited amount of games on the "next gen" consoles and all the Xbox One media mess I do not regret my decision.
Don't worry pony fanboys, your console will still work the same as before, despite these changes. Now go ask your mom to change you before you get a rash.
What a nice big "**** you" to the 5 million people who already got forced to buy one. £349 can't be right either, that's how much it's been selling for for weeks anyway (Been on offer with Titanfall included for that price too).
Phil, You've heard a lot of things from the players, but something you've refused to hear is -- we don't want your d@mn XBUX JUAN.
Man they're doing everything in their power to try sell those things. I nearly feel like buying one out of pity.
@zerohournow I'm confused, is "pony" not a jab at PS users or am I just misinformed
@jynxten Don't do it man. Do we have to hold an intervention?
Riiight but you still had to buy it whether u want it or not. Sounds like an essential part of the shitboxone experience
Your IQ, wack
