That bums me out. It would totally suck for new users especially when they won't get to experience games like God of War, Gears of War, Uncharted, Halo. 

 

All the big time titles like that will eventually be able to be downloaded and played on the new systems I believe, makes the most sense to bring the block buster titles back for the younger crowd that missed it or people that just didn't play them the first time around.

I was disappointed.

I'm an Xbox fan. I had both previous Xbox consoles. There are many reason's I'm getting a PS4

The Xbox is always online
Fees for used games
Kinect is mandatory
Online play still costs money
I won't get to keep any of my XBLA games.

I'm going PS4. You'd think they'd learn from Sim City and Diablo how always online is a terrible idea. I hope they flop.

<br />You shouldn't make up your mind yet. I think the used game thing will be the standard going forward.

Yup. Not gonna get nickle and dimed when these consoles and games are already incredibly expensive. If I buy it used I'm not paying a fee to play it. Period.

I hate this, total bummer. I want a gaming console, not a family entertainment center. This thing is like an upgraded Wii. The only thing I want to be able to do is play games, really couldn't care less about the stupid gimmicky Kinect and voice commands and all that crap. I know most of my friends feel the same way, I'm just gonna hold out and keep playing my 360 until some changes are made or the price drops.

Lmao, pretty funny.

From what I have read many people are disappointed. Wonder if Microsoft will change a few things before they release it or even do a full announcement at E3.

There will be used game fees but apprently it will be passed on to the people that resell the games. This means lost of profit for game stop hence why their stock has been taking a beating since the one has been announced because of uncertainty of used games. Still feel like I'm gonna get the PS4 unless the one has some great exclusives.

Not gonna happen ^^^

 

Microsoft is gonna make so much money off the one because their potential demographic is about 3 times that of the ps4. There is a huge decline in console base gaming overseas in Asia and that is where play station always did its damage. Microsoft has the US ages 5-65 demographic in their pocket right now, which sucks because that is what made them turn their back on the people that help build what xbox is, the core gamers.

Playstation 4 will destroy the console wars.  Xbox One will be the console that will destroy Xbox fans and their company.  It sucks.  I gaurenteed it!

I think microsoft is gonna make bank on this thing, it has a place in every home that watches tv, makes any tv into a smart tv. There gonna make a lot but lost a lot of core gamers, but compared to casual gamers and people that want to upgrade their entertainment system its a small piece of the pie they are losing for a big chunk of new money.

You could be right. But how many "casual" gamers do you know out there?  I have a brother in law that hardly play video games. I asked him if he is going to buy an xbox one since its an "all in one" system.  He said he doesn't need those all in one system that xbox had to offer because the PS4 also is an all in one system and plus sony as a brand is so much better than microsoft in terms of electronics.  Xbox one is essentially another PC which make sense because Microsoft are known for computers. Why would one want to buy another computer when they already have better actual computers out there? Xbox was dominant in the past years because they concentrate on gaming and thus creating huge numbers of xbox fans all over the world. They make majority of their money from those gamers. If they lose their core customers which are hardcore gamers and only concentrate on getting "casual" gamers or people who doesn't give a crap about buying a game console in the first place, they will be done in no time. I don't see many people who are not into playing video games thinking about buying any gaming console just so they can have a better entertainment system for their tv. If I never play video games, why would I waste money getting a product that are capable of doing part of the things I never use? If I want an entertainment system for my TV, that last place I want to go to is my neighborhood gamestop.  The WII U already beating them in console wars and casual gamers because people who buy the Wii usually are parents who barely play video games and only buy it for thei little ones to play those little kid games. And now the PS4 will technically destroy any competition and grap all the hard core gamers from xbox because Playstation have a much better online gaming community now.  I seriously think this is the beggining of the end for Xbox as a company. They broke the camel's back when they will be charging customers to play used games and not backward compatible.  I dont know if PS4 going to be doing the same thing but the marketing genius for xbox just screwed the pooch.
