There is no competition between a gaming console and an home entertainment system. MS bloated on hardcore gamer by packing a lot of useless features nobody need on a gaming console.

@AoEKiller Not really much of a surprise, though, is it? Look at how Microsoft traditionally does things: They start out with an application (or hardware) intended to do one thing, and try to make it do that one thing better than other similar products. Then they start adding more features with each iteration, until the app (or hardware) becomes the equivalent of a Swiss Army knife -- in other words, it can do all kinds of unrelated things that, individually, can be done better by just having the proper tools.

I mean, it's something that all tech companies do, to some extent, but Microsoft feels the need to have anything they make capable of doing anything that anyone might possibly want to do.

"Microsoft did say that if a disc was used with a second account, that owner would be given the option to pay a fee and install the game from the disc, which would then mean that the new account would also own the game and could play it without the disc." - not really blocking used...

@obsequies @Vuyolicious That looks like a deal breaker. All of that seems unnecessary.

@Double-Ego @Vuyolicious No, but you have to kind of read between the lines. Obviously, you'll need an active internet connection to do most of things the X1 is supposed to be capable of -- as a TV tuner. As far as games, well, MS has been trying to cram cloud storage down our throats; obviously an active connection will be needed if your games are saved on the cloud. In other statements MS has made recently, they've stated that an always-on internet connection is not specifically required, but that *some* games may need to be able to access the internet (or the cloud). Also, you'll most likely need to be connected when you first put a game disc in, so the X1 can phone home and see if it's a previously-used game, before allowing you to play.

It is just too early to say "Dude Sony will win this" or "MSFT owns this" At the moment we can say sony was better at introducing its new console but nothing else. Lets wait for E3

Very stiff event out at Redmond Campus for Microsoft. If you care about military shooting stuff, hand gestures and...well partnerships that will only be focused on the US (and perhaps UK) market, then XboxONE is for you


Sony, you have my money for another generation

I live in Romania (Eastern Europe)... I can safely say that that we have very powerful internet connection, I think it's rated top 10 in the world (RDS RCS).

If games are tied to your account, that means that if your account is banned you lose your entire game library - fucking adorable.

Sony will win this time. No games in a games console? TV, Skype and other stuff most don't care about?

@Afonsop the PS4 will win for gamers. Xbox:One will win for casuals, noobs and TV addicts

@Pre_ordered_PS4 @Afonsop You can take casuals off that list. Casual gamers are still gamers. I'm a casual *gamer*, which means I'll be passing on the SmartGlass-enabled, Kinect-powered cable box, and continue playing games on my XBox 360 and PS3 (I would include the Wii there, but my Wii is basically a dust-catcher).

I'm a little bit bemused to be honest. I thought the PS4 would have some stiff competition but this is just to easy
