    This Christmas season is going to be awesome. Not having to wait in a moronic line for this p.o.s., not having to deal with the acerbic nature of xbox live anymore. Thank you for freeing me from the hell that is console gaming.

      You talk as though you were forced to buy a 360 and pay for Live.

        I am ok with DRM. I am not OK with Always on Kinect spying. If PS4 is the same. They can suck it too…

        All PS4s will come with the PS Eye.

        If the PS4 is forcing us to connect the Eye for it to work. I will not get it either. I am an Xbox360 Cod type of Dudebro guy too. That is the only console I have used this gen. I was hoping for better out of Microsoft. Read this from a while back on engadget to get a view of where it is all headed…

        Microsoft’s Dennis Durkin voiced an interesting idea at an investment summit last week — the idea that the company’s Kinect camera might pass data to advertisers about the way you look, play and speak. “We can cater what content gets presented to you based on who you are,” he told investors, suggesting that the Kinect offered business opportunities that weren’t possible “in a controller-based world.”

        And over time that will help us be more targeted about what content choices we present, what advertising we present, how we get better feedback. And data about how many people are in a room when an advertisement is shown, how many people are in a room when a game is being played, how are those people engaged with the game? How are they engaged with a sporting event? Are they standing up? Are they excited? Are they wearing Seahawks jerseys?

        Yeah I heard about that as well. It doesn’t bother me because Google does the same thing on the web. Even if you don’t use any of their services (Youtube/Google/GMail/etc.) They have scripts that run on other sites to build up a profile about you that is stored in a cookie. So it is always happening already. Just go to most sites and view the source. Most of them will have a Google script in there.

        Google uses that though to subsidize their services. MS/Sony might be able to do the same thing. Maybe they can use it to subsidize hardware/ shows like the Halo one/ XBL/ etc. There is no avoiding it really.

        No doubt… I am not really against either company, Sony or Microsoft. The Required Camera creeps me out whoever does it. I don’t know if Sony requires theirs to be hooked up yet. I expect to give up some sort of privacy when I use Google or Facebook etc… and I control what gets put out on the net. I have fears about this Kinect deal. That is a full on market research, Neilson box with a camera feed and mic going into my house. I certainly don’t want to put one in my kids room. Do you know how many gamertags got hacked on Live and how many JTAG Xboxes where in the wild forever. Crazy stuff. Not worth it.

        Yeah, I can totally respect that decision. I have just become desensitized to it because it is so pervasive.

        Who knows maybe they will have privacy settings?

        Like

      • James Cox

        Probably some privacy settings, but what about a kid letting his friend borrow his Live Profile to play a game? Security issue. Also, most people use a Hotmail / Outlook e-mail account to use or create a gamer tag. How often do companies get that info dumped on the net by Anonymous or whoever? Once they have that, you could be screwed since they can sign in. I am sure it will get hacked by the anti-corporate, anti-greed hacker types anyway. The Live ID / E-mail account will become a real security issue, especially if you have to share it to share games etc…. Does not matter how secure Microsoft is, if the end user is not, it won’t matter. That box has too much in it to not be careful

    Will there be a fee to or a limit my xboxs a person to can sign into an account with ?

    • BoA Wrath

      As far as I am aware from the recent details anyone signed into your account can access your games. Though presumably you can only be signed into one console at once. There is talk in an forbes article that you could possibly won the licence to a game that you could digitally lend to your friends online but would mean you can’t access the game while they are on playing it. This make sense to me given this would be the same as you lending your disc to a friend.

    i’m the one who had an OG Xbox day 1 and got all my buddies into xbox. So i hope you guys don’t let me down from a gaming standpoint. if the kinect goes and my XB1 stops working that’s just unacceptable. i’m still hoping for the better but things are looking grim

      I don’t think that many of us are against the XB1 in terms of the unit. Most of us are much much more concerned about policies relating to the system. I think the xbox1 looks like an amazing unit that will be able to dish out some amazing games. However… I don’t like required kinect, the used games bit, the connection check in, etc. The games and horsepower of this system are not a concern at all. I have total faith in this system having amazing games, its other stuff dealing with the system that make me not want the system.

      From what I’ve seen, there’s actually a lot of positivity (at least out in the real world). Online however I’m beginning to think that some of the people who claim they are “upset” never owned an XBOX to begin with. It’s possible they might have other motivations.

        Actually they “guesstimated” the price high. 399 British pounds = $601 US dollars.

        That’s probably not too high for the UK. We generally seem to pay more than you guys in the US for our electronics. It’s perfectly possible that the price-tag in US Dollars will be the same number in UK Pounds, although the value will be more. So in reality, it could well be $399 in the US AND ALSO £399 ($601) in the UK.

      its just a product placement holder. could you see them advertising that price and then when its released its higher? no its placed there because it will be that price or lower.

    Nice article. I particularly liked :

    “Gamers who purchase used games or lend their games to friends often do so because they cannot afford to purchase new games at $60 a piece. Hampering used games and the capacity to lend or gift your own games without a very real price drop for new games won’t magically lead to more new game sales. Gamers have finite resources.”

    Let’s hope MS actually understand this!.
