      It’s not so much whining about it, but the constant lame negative comments on EVERY post. Just relax, we’ve said our piece. You can get in your opinion without blasting. I think by now MS realizes that if they don’t fix the issues they will lose out on our money. Let’s just relax now and see what they do, but just be prepared to follow through if they don’t make it right.

      But you gotta admit, the render thing is cool being able to look at it from all angles and stuff.

    Ok, that is way cool. I like being able to look at it like that and play with it. I really hope they fix the things that will prevent me from buying it (as in, used games, and needing to “ping” home).

    Very cool. I like the controller, they didn’t go far from what was already the best controller out there. And the box actually looks good as well.

    Here’s to hoping:-)

      Yes, the Xbox 360 is the best controller every to be released. Comfortable to hold for prolonged time, easy to use (PS3 hurts my thumb when using the sticks, the triggers are stupid, and for Wii/Wii U, the controllers are a joke as hardcore gamers, right?).
      The Xbox One’s new 2 buttons are still Back/Start but named View/Menu, because that’s what they are now, and “Back” was misleading. Still buttons for the game, (all this according to rumours). Ruble triggers, is a nice feature too. A smaller dead zone for the sticks, that was my biggest complain about the 360 controller.

        The only thing wrong with the Wii U controller is its just not ergonomic enough and not having analog triggers. Its perfectly workable however and still more comfortable than the PS3 controller IMO.

        But yes, the One controller looks like its the excellent 360 controller with the few issues it had fixed. Moving the guide button away from start/select, moving the battery bay so it doesn’t cramp your fingers and fixing the god awful D-pad. Its just a shame so many other things about One don’t have me sold.

        Clear this mess up as in how to spin it. What I find as nasty as the X1 hidden ‘features’ is how slippery M$ is in dodging the questions. When asked about sharing a game M$ responds ‘of course, with a minor fee’, that fee being the full purchase price, double talk for absolutely no sharing. They could have made a game usable in only one location at a time, just like your profile can only be used in one location at a time, but that is not what they want. Asked again about sharing games, and M$ answers ‘of course you can buy used games from a retailer’, completely dodging the question. Even the used game bone they pretend to be throwing you is meant to cover the fact that the used game will only work from a M$ controlled retailer. Now I don’t need used games, I can wait the years it takes for a game to become reasonable in price, assuming M$ allows prices to drop in time as they do now. Look at Games on Demand prices for a peek into the future when M$ controls everything. But since I rarely buy a game I have not played, I would be buying very few games, and would never become familiar with a new franchise. Other than the Bioshock demo, every demo I have ever played has convinced me not to buy the game. Sometimes, as with The Darkness 2, the game turns out to be excellent, not the impression I got from the demo. Fortunately there are game play videos on YouTube. But the deal breaker for me is the internet requirement, and M$ is not going to give that up. The X1 is the culmination of what they have been slipping into the 360 for years and their goal since before the original XBox. Everything M$ wants the X1 to be is everything I don’t want it to be, and that is OK. Since I found out that M$ won’t be dropping the 360 the way they dropped the original XBox, I know I will still have a game console for years to come. The X1 is what it is, but hopefully, with enough noise, Sony will not follow M$ and the PS4 will be a game console with features I enjoy instead of features I don’t want that are forced on me. Making some X1 noise is also a public service to protect those uninformed who are dumbfounded when they hear of the hidden ‘features’ M$ is trying to slip by them.

        Good to know. Its just annoying to be told “its the same as before” when in fact if it functions like XBLA games “you have to be signed in for friends to play on their console” then its NOT the same as before.

        360 disc: You can lend a game to a friend and still play at home.

        One: You can’t play a game at home while lending to a friend because your profile has to be signed in there.

        Plus if its like 360 you end up with some games unlocking achievements on your profile even though you weren’t playing, annoying.

        Like

      • Palindrome 101

        You had a system on the 360 that worked. Games on Demand for people who didn’t want to use a game disc, and a game disc for people who wanted to feel like they owned something. A game disc is forever, unlike Xbox Live, hard drives, the first XBox I put the game disc in, and my access to broadband internet. Pursuing their vision of digital only distribution of games, Microsoft has broken that system with the mandatory game install, making the game disc a problem that needs to be controlled. The solution is not to make the hardware & software functional only with Big Brothers permission. The solution is to fix what you broke. You buy a disc, you use a disc, otherwise use Games on Demand.

        Updates to the 360 have always been one step forward and one frustrating step backward. 360 owners would vent their complaints in the beta message boards, but nobody was listening. Since you are listening now, just a few other things. I have used Kinect, and may I say I really like the 360 controller, the one thing I would really miss if I were forced out of the Xbox camp, so let’s hope Kinect use is optional. Don’t hobble the Xbox One to Xbox Live the way you have with the 360 (timestamps, Indie games, Pins not allowed offline). Also allow the user to customize the dashboard, making it look like a game console by hiding everything Microsoft likes (TV, Music, Apps, advertisements, Kinect). I like wallpaper, let me see it, let me supply it. I know Microsoft is going to do what it wants, but just the suggestion that Microsoft is listening, wow, what a rush.

        Your VHS game won’t fit in your Betamax console mate.

      Eh.. I don’t see the concern here. I would rather my console blend in with everything else in my entertainment center. What is on the TV should be the focus, if I never notice the unit that is good. So many of you want this stand out console box that will cry out to be noticed. Why?

      This quote below comes straight from Microsoft and is one of the few things they are doing with this console that I agree with:

      “The console and Kinect sensor are liquid black so they melt into the background when being used, allowing the content on your TV to dominate the living room.”

      A console that pulls my attention away from the TV itself is not something that interests me.

      Let me get this straight: You’re bitching about the SHAPE of the console, right? Not its capabilities, not its specs, not its library, but the simple fact that it doesn’t LOOK like you think it should. Is that correct?

      You do know they WANTED to give it a RETRO look to the system.

      The look of the system is one of the few things that I really do like about it. It looks like it really belongs in an entertainment center/rack and not a toy.
