    I know it and that’s why I’m not buying this Sony BS marketing. Though PS4 has the edge with a GPU capable of 1.84GFlops, in the end it comes down to the developer’s talent and tools they can use and MS has an edge here with DirectX. I don’t think games will offer that huge difference graphicaly and by huge I mean PS2 vs Xbox or actual PCs vx Xbox 360 or PS3. But by the end of the generation, the Xbox One might show it’s age when devs could still squeeze things out of the PS4. But OS talking the One has hands down a better architecture than PS4

    I wouldn’t mind saving a few bucks and having the wifi card removed… thanks for the suggestion.

    However the camera is really worthless to most people, not everyone has space in there game play location to flap there arms around like idiots or the interest to do so.

      The Kinect is how the system syncs the controllers. Can’t remove that without going back to engineering and redesigning the system.

    If you have more then 1 person using your console, who normally would buy their own membership/ profile, you’ll save more money, then you lose—- and if you same people who hate the kinect bought a WII for the “fun unique experience”, you’re hypocrites…..

    Larry I need help understanding your company. I have a family of 5 we are all gamers, we currently have the live family plan that covers 4 of us for 100 bucks and we buy cards for the 5th. I was on a live chat with a xbox rep Candy and she said that when my family account was up that it would cost $299.95 a year for my family to be on live. when I was paying $160 for the same service. This is how your company rewards a 9 year member. We have bought a WiiU and were planning on getting the X1 when the policy changed, but now we are having second thoughts Please respond.

      You don’t need the family plan anymore it’s been cancelled. Now it’s one standard Xbox Gold subscription per xbox which covers all gamertags.

        It’s not per XBOX. It is up to 10 XBox Live accounts, regardless of which console you log in from. So, you will be going from ~ $100/yr to ~$60/yr. If you are a savvy shopper, you can get it much cheaper.

        Thanks to internet rage and executive backpedaling, we will not get the family sharing with games though, which was the reason I pre-ordered. Microsoft has until the end of October to fix this before I cancel my pre-orders.

        It works as much as it does right now with the family plan, but with 10 “family members” (it can really be anybody), instead of 4. Unfortunately, if you let your family plan expire instead of letting it auto-renew or adding subscription cards to it (there is a trick to this), you will have to wait until sometime November when the new XBox launches, which sucks. Microsoft has really dropped the ball lately with keeping customers informed.

        I would suggest you get on eBay or check on Amazon to see if there is anyone selling Live subscription cards on the cheap. I can usually find them for ~$30-35 for 12-months.

      I’m in a similar boat (multi Xbox and multi gamertag on a Family subscription) and have received conflicting responses from Microsoft support. Really would like to see clarification here because it will be one of the determining factors on whether I keep my pre-orders or not.

    People think Microsoft don’t care about gamers because they added a TV to it. If didn’t care about gamers, they wouldn’t have paid millions of dollars to put 15 good games only on XBOX ONE, and block it from PS4. Right now PS4 fans are upset that Dead Rising 3 will only be on XBOX ONE.

    People who don’t like the XBOX ONE just because a TV, must don’t like Smart Phones. Cause on Smart Phones you can watch TV, play games, use internet and they have a navigator…I can tell they don’t like Smart Phones. They gonna be saying “Cell Phones are only for texting and talking on. I don’t like it cause it have all that.”
    That’s how stupid they sound about the XBOX ONE.

      Lol you can take a phone anywhere. That’s why it works. You already have TV in your house and smart phones are not reliant on another device.

    I just pre-ordered my Xbox One. At the end of the day the games I saw at E3, and the excellent service that XBL is won me over. I currently own the 360 and PS3 with a Plus subscription. I use the 360 far more than the PS3, and Sony hasn’t shown me anything that will change that trend.

    Sony is slower than Microsoft. It took Sony four PlayStations to make real life graphics, and it took Microsoft three XBOXs to make real life graphics. PlayStation should’ve had real life graphics on PS3. Microsoft is better & 2 times faster than Sony.

    So because you don’t have an internet connection, the world can’t have a console that stays connected to and uses the internet to function?

    Why would they take Family Sharing away? We never even tried it yet. It’s all the people fault who been complaining about the XBOX ONE. Wait until you try it out, then say if you like it or not.
