    It looks to me that that is a standard sized DVD case? If these games are really the BD format they should have the same sized cases as BD disks. Not only that but I have yet to even see a cheap eco friendly case for any bluray or any PS3 game yet.
    Not a big deal but I’ll be disappointed if these are DVD sized cases, it should match my massive bluray collection, simple as that.

      I agree.

      Why did we end up with these DVD sized cases anyway? There was nothing wrong with the old PSone game case size, just the plastic needed improving.

      I get wanting to make them more visible on store shelves but it seems rather moot today with so many people buying online.

      Because some of us can’t download gigantic games, either because of speed not being up to par for reasonable download times, or because of bandwidth caps.

      With the sizes games will likely get up to next gen, I know I’d be downright unable to buy a system that was digital only.

    Hey Major, why would I support XBone?

    Why would you support a system that robs Child foundations like “Childs Play”?

    Why would you support a system that discriminates our Military who just want some relaxing time, but there’s no internet?

    Why would you support a system that has anti-independent policies that benefit the already rich Publishers? Which will also sorely affect your library of unique games.

    Why would you support a system that spies on you with a camera and can never be turned off?

    Why would you support a system that basically does this comparison, if you buy a book and were never able to share it?

        It will require a connection but the effective time for single player games, and blu-ray are in question. I don’t know if those are affected by the 24 hour time period but at the moment it is leaning that way
        Second, I’m sure those active in the military can find other things to do with their free time, like play their PS4. It is not unpatriotic to create a device that requires an internet connection, that is just being stupid.
        So Kinect is standard that has nothing to do with your previous statement… also the indie companies have to do that now to be on XBLA so, what is your point.
        99% is based on hearsay specifically once again aimed at your belief on the used game issue. Just because one person (even a VP, or Hyrb) says something doesn’t mean that is company policy. They are human and can be wrong. We will know for certain in 2 weeks at E3

        To be fair this will be a problem with Xbox 360 too as so many games hit retail with major bugs that will have been patched. If your console doesn’t have that patch saved, you can only the play the original buggy version.

        Then there is DLC.

        I’m also pretty sure the intention was for the DRM to work exactly as described, but they added the “more details to be announced later” so they could wait and see how we reacted and then “tweak” it before launch. How much they will tweak it is still up in the air and the more we complain, the more likely it will be in our favour.

        20 million? Try 40 million. And i think most of the world (at least the places that Xbox one will sell in) Have internet that can at least last for an hour. Enough to keep the Xbox on for a day. I think people are over exaggerating when it comes to internet reliability. I refuse to believe the majority of internet users lose there connection daily. If it does. Then you don’t even have an internet connection. Unless you can show me otherwise. You cant blame me for assuming this. I live in the highlands of Scotland. And my internet never disconnects.

        Didn’t they say that they are using the cloud for processing power anyway? I would say that is a feature. I believe consoles that can stay always off line are a dying breed. The internet will get bigger and bigger. And will always improve. And it is good that a console is taking advantage of this.

        There is a major difference because Steam is a software platform that is built upon existing technology made by another company. The X1 is a console which it’s hardware and software are built by one and the same. My point in this is that Steam has to be able to allow you to do this because of the nature of the hardware they are dealing with… now what the steam box will do is a different question.

        Have you ever been around for any console launch? My NES games didn’t work on the Super Nintendo and those Super Nintendo games didn’t work on the Game Qube. Now Game Cube games were supported by Wii and PS1 games on the PS2 but when the PS3 came around they ended up removing backwards compatibility. So, the PS4 and X1 will not be backwards compatible but they will continue to support their older consoles for a little while. Yes I spent a good amount of money but I also understand how systems work in regards to their CMOS design so, I get why backwards isn’t there.

        There are times, when the silence can be quite deafening. Lets see, 5 years from now, when the console has sold 1/3 of the PS4, what do you think Microsoft will say and think?
        But yeah, nobody is holding a gun to our head, and i personally will vote with my wallet and not buy it. Its just that i feel shame that Microsoft is driving so many old costumers away, when it could have made an effort to keep them. We complain, because we care(d).
        Oh well, once i get a Ps4 ill forget about the xbox anyway…

        Are you really naive enough to believe that Sony won’t follow suit at least to some degree for used games? Big publishers aren’t going to just go “Xbox is making us more money because of the used game policy, let’s continue seeing less profit from PS4 games.”
        On top of that, Xbox will probably see more success to start off anyways due to the momentum that they have now, at least in North America.

        Sony said that used games would be playable on the system, which, truth be told, can be vague. Come e3, they might also add “…but for fee”. Guess well then. At least, i hope they dont force us to go online regularly.

        And yeah, the xbox is big in the US, But everywhere else it sells less than the ps3. And judging from the very US Centric presentation tuesday, i dont think it will sell any better outside the american market. All its media features are tailored for the american market, and they wont be available anywhere else (already now, only a fraction of the media apps are available outside the US marketplace, so wont hold my breath for it to change)

        4. Still more convenient than a PC

        So what. End result is the same. You need a internet connection in your home. If you’re only into single player games, and you don’t have net, then what? If you go on vacation? If you change internet provider, and your offline for 2-3 weeks? What if, 10 years from now, the ONE servers get shut down? The question i ask you: what do we consumers gain from being forced to login regularly? Why do you accept such arbitrary decision so lightly. Dont be a pushover to big corporations, wise up

        And yes, there will be used games, but you have to pay a fee to use them on your console. So no, in the end effect, there are no used games, because the fee will be of the same amount as a new game bought online from the store. How is that allowing used games, if by playing a used game you mean lending your game to a friend and he playing it on his system?

        Its not as clearcut and harmless as youre trying to make it sound, imo

        Its not always, but regular and mandatory. if you fail to connect within 24h, the system wont allow you to play your games, not even the single player ones. No internet, no luck then. And why is that? What do we gain from having to go trough this hassle? Nothing. And what bappnes 10 years from, when the servers of the X1 get shut down? Dont be a pushover to big companies, you gain nothing from having to go trough this

        There will be used games… For a fee. Theyve been coy about the system they want to put in place, but the simpe fact they are putting a system in place means that used games will be restricted. What i want is a system that allows me to lend a friend a game, he can play if free on his console for a few days, and then return it, NO fees involved.
        What i want is to be able to take my game license and sell/pass it on to somebody. If they dont allow it, they should do what steam does, and have regular and generous sales,a nd not only to gold subscribers

        1. Kinect is mandatory, even if you dont use it. You cant unplug it, or the system wont work. And you have a bigbrother pointed at you 24/7. And the whole device is for me useless, dont care about it.

        2. Always online has been confirmed, in a sense that you need to at least login every 24h (its not always, but regular). Confirmed

        3. No used games are allowed, for a fee. Confirmed.

        4. About the convenince, it depends on what you want from it. You want to mod the games, or you want simulations or strategy games that require lots of keys, not so convenient then, is it? Again, depends on what games your into. If youre all too happy for brodude stuff à la COD, i guess its enough

        5. Exclusives? Depends if you like halo or forza. And the pc also has exclusives games. Depends if you like, lets say ARMA or Planetside 2

        6. But you can do much more with a pc of equivalent power. Again, its up to what you need. If you just need something dumbed down and ready to go

        7. Hold your horses. It wont feature full cloud gaming, only a few light services. this isnt a cloudgaming console, or lse, you wouldnt need the big cpu and graphics card… right? plus, Cloud computing is also available on a pc, with services like Onlive. Plus, if you want to go that way, you dont even need a Xbox One to access cloud games, any old pc will do (remember, all the processing power would be done online)

        Thats not what i said, i said quite the contrary

        I said that it depends on what games you want to play. If youre into sports games, casual games, action, rpgs, indie games, light fps like COD, then a console is the best option. Its more confortable to play them from your couch

        But if youre into, lets say, simulation games, management, RTS, strategy, fps (i hate a pad for that), mmorpg’s and games that require more keys, or you like to mod a game with community content, then youre out of luck on a console (ARMA, Planetside, starcraft, flight simulator,… Theyre really not viable on a console, imo)

        To say the console is the best of all worlds is kinda looking at the world from your eyes. There are other tastes and needs

        3. They said they are still working on the used game policies
        4. By convenient I mean popping the game in and playing it, other stuff is irrelevant.
        5. Never said PC didn’t have exclusives did I.
        6. I already have a PC that does plenty, I’m fine buying the cheaper console to do what I expect of it.

        1. The problem i have is that you have a big brother, watching a recording what you do, 24/7. But of course, m$ would never spy on us… Or would they?

        2. Youre wrong, check your facts. The 24h check has been confirmed by phil harrison after the One reveal, after a journalist asked him directly, and he said that the console would have to at least login every 24h. If its mandatory , then its not a stretch to think that games get blocked if you fail to login

        3. But the simple fact theyre working on a system means that theyre will try to control the market. If the system allowed you to play used games unrestricted, why would a system have to be put in place, huh? They also said that tou could play a game at a friends house, as long as youre signed into your account, which, using logic, means that you wont be able to play it if youre not signed in, no?

        4. Yeah, though the bluray drive might be slow for that. Dunno

        5. No, but i pounted out that the pc also had them. It all comes down to the games you like to play more. If one is more into starcraft or ARMA,no much need for the XO

        6. Again, same as point 5. If youre not into demanding pc titles, you dont need a gaming pc. Heck, you might not even need a pc, and a tablet or iphone is enough

        7. Itll be used, but not to the point of full games streaming. Dont think the bandwidth is available yet, not even in 5 years time. And in terms of cloud, i put my money on gaikai, every day of the week, twice on sunday. Time will tell

        1. You’re being paranoid. The way I see it’s no more likely to get broken than the console itself, worst case scenario they probably have a warranty program.
        2. I know about the interview he said he “believes” it will be 24 hours, showing that he was unsure himself, probably they are probably because they are still working on the details.
        3. Again potential scenario, they also said they want people to be able to play the same game on the same console with different accounts.
        4. We’ll wait till someone gets their hands on one.
        5. I was pointing out a reason that people may want an Xbox One over a PC is the exclusives, I wasn’t debating which is better.
        7. I didn’t say it would stream full games I said it would work in conjunction with the native hardware, which could give games a boost in performance and improve the console’s lifespan.

      Console over pc? I love pc gaming but theres a reason people come back
      to consoles. That reason is ease of use. People love to play on a
      console because a few reasons… Console players love knowing that the
      game we just bought is gonna run smoothly and at the best it can and as
      good as everyone elses on the console, without worry about updating
      drivers/hardware, consoles are also not dragged down a huge OS. Another
      huge reason is in mp online Why? because everyone has the SAME
      advanatages, in the pc crowd everyone has games runnign at diffrent FPS
      and or other things that give them advantages or disadvantages.
      Console players KNOW pc is the best place for the up to date graphics,
      but thats not WHY anyone should play games. Also most console players
      know a mouse weilds much more precise controls but still prefer the ease
      of use of a controller. Its not just 1 thing that keep people wanting
      consoles its a multiple of things.

      Everytime a new
      console releases we see these arguments about pc being better. Sure a
      consoles graphics and processor will only be up there with the best pcs
      for around 3 months but it doesnt matter, it all comes down to ease of
      use. A true pc gamer needs to upgrade a 200$ gpu around every 6 months to
      stay “up to date”. Buy a console and its designed to handle games for
      the next 5 years. Im not defending any certain system im just stating
      the facts about consoles in general.

        It think it comes more down to the kind of games you like to play. If youre a RTS/MMO/FPS/Strategy/Simulation player, the pc is the better platform. And about the driver issues and such, never had a problem for years now. The OS autoupdates, and even the grahics cards checks online for updates and installs them (even steam can do that for you, as long as youre card is from ATI).

        About the ease of use, it can be a blessing, and a curse. You cant play more advanced games, that require more than a couple of keys. You cant mod your games. And then you have fps, which i hate to play on a pad. Oh, and the pad can also be connected to the pc, even the wireless ones.
