Why does the name sound like we're going backwards? We're going from 360 back to 1?

Okay............ >_>

....So, that Halo t.v. show's pretty awesome, right?

I suppose I'm of the minority that doesn't mind too much about what everyone's worried about because so far, it doesn't negatively affect me.  I have an external storage device for a few hundred GB, in case 500 GB runs out, I've had no issues with the Kinect (Been getting some mileage with it and entertaining younger brothers, actually), and I am pretty much connected all the time anyways.

So....yeah.

So fees to buy preowned games or if you want to take a game home to try of your friends will cost you money? How about for SOME REASON, none of the XBLA games working on an infrastructure that should support it, magically do not? I mean, as someone who seems to play Xbox a decent amount should feel concern.

Judging by the reactions here and elsewhere, I have to ask: did Microsoft somehow make a console that looks even more dire than the Wii U?

It's not like I'd be getting rid of my 360 for the One.  The lack of Arcade titles being available to re-download and not playing 360 games is a shame, but not the end of the world for me.

The paying to play others games is a bit discouraging, admittingly.  Though I don't often borrow others games to begin with, usually just both me and said friend get the same game to play online together.  Last game I did borrow was Battlefield 3, which already requires you to buy the game yourself to play anyways.

I'm not saying what they've announced so far isn't without its issues.  Just....not too many of them affect me that badly.  :-\

Still hoping they resolve said issues for everyone else.

Also folks do remember, Microsoft pushed their presentation back a month as a response to Sony's. They thought their original presentation wasn't good enough.

And what we saw today......Was their improved version. They thought "Yeah that is going to show Sony. fuck yeah."

welp
yeah its codes.
you get the activation codes and then you can exchange them with others, effectively giving away the game.


install the game on a friends house and it doesnt work unless they pay for it as well.

oh you can sign in with your account at your friends house to play without payan! but wait, whats that? in the current generation you cant share an account with more than X persons until they start shutting off your accounts for giving them away to your friends , so ...

Boy, this whole new Xbox thing went from underwhelming to just plain abysmal. I think i'll stick with Sony until Microsoft gets their collective heads out of their asses.

You'll fix chuchoryu ? Sounds like a plan. How about you code him from scratch instead ?

Probably since she knows that's what it's equivalent to. Actually I'd rather buy a real one instead.

Water cooler as in, something you bring to a party or sports gathering. It was a fucking terrible choice of words.
