If they got a franchise that I love like XCOM, GalCiv, Bioshock, Borderlands, or a space flight sim that rivals TIE Fighter.
I would be mad about it though because they would be forcing me to buy their shitty console with useless (to me) TV features for one franchise.

Price cut plus interesting non-timed exclusives
Both of those have already been done. Get your wallet out.
Nothing, MS can kiss my ass. Its not like they actually care about games or the industry as a whole all they want is money and they'll lie, cheat, steal and whatever else it takes to get it, not from me though.
Then Sony must be kissing your ass already. Or maybe it's the other way around. Everything you've said, Sony has already done 10x's over.

Backwards compatibility was a big issue for me. One of the reasons why I did not adopt one around launch. Well, neither ps4 or X1 are BC, so I didn't want either. Also, the 500gig hard drive turned me off of the PS4 and X1. Yeah, sure, you can put your own HD in the Ps4, but thats just more money on top of the initial price. I was holding out for a terabyte, and looks like I'm getting my wish. I'm not gonna touch this "graphics war" between the consoles. Games look so good now, I don't care that much.
Im just afraid that if PS4 continues to slay the xbox in units sold, it's gonna get more software support- which is the most important part of the console. The games. But I much prefer achievements to trophies, and the Xbox controller is still better than the dualshocks. (Although Dualshock 4's are quite nice).

For real? I probably wouldn't want to pay the Xbox Live fee to have the 'privilege' to buy and play MS exclusives...
So if it were free (with the caveat that I can't sell it to anyone) I would take it... but I'm not sure I'd even use it.
It would need way better exclusives, and more of them too.

Probably nothing, or at least nothing that's likely to happen. If Xbox came up with some industry changing game play experience that was only available on their platform then yeah I probably get one in 10 minutes, but that's not likely.
And really, it's nothing against the XB1, or at least the XB1 as it stands now. It's just that I already have a substantially similar system in my collection and not enough time to play all the games I want for the systems I already have. I'll likely get an XB1 the same way I get most systems I pass up initially: as a legacy system after new consoles release for a steal from someone looking to unload his old collection.
MS will get a shot at my business again next gen though, and I think the lessons learned from this gen will drive them towards a very compelling product.

An absolute must-have, permanent exclusive, since I can get multi-plats on the PS4 or PC. At this point, I don't know if it will happen. Like with the Wii U, if I ever get one, it will only be a second-hand one. Don't really want to buy two brand-new consoles just for a very small number of games.

Nothing, honestly. If I end up getting a console from this gen, it'll be a PS4. I see no reason to waste my money getting both consoles when there's considerable overlap in their libraries. Playstation is home to the exclusive franchises I've been playing for the last 18 years. I don't play first-person shooters, so the bulk of Xbox exclusives don't appeal to me.
