looks like MS have sort of answered why the one needs to be connected once a day, to the internet. The cloud system isn't anything new tec wise, as there is or was a pc system doing this a few years back. If MS can get there servers right, so their cloud can handle all the traffic it will help with it's performance. it's going to be very interesting to see who has the better cloud servers tho, MS or Sony. yet Sony hasn't said much about theirs yet


MS probably has the better cloud service in terms of quality, which is probably one of the reason why we need a subscription for Xbox online services.

I didn't really get anything. I watched the conference and I thought the one was cool and the new little features were nice lol and hearing that they improved the kinect made me happy XD but then next thing I know a lot of people are mad I guess the fees didn't bother me cuz i dont borrow games and I still don't pay for online which I'll admit makes my 360 boring atm and would make my one as well...but idk just depends on the games for each one I guess...

I also don't get the whole "always being connected thing"

Just a lot I don't get

I am very disappointed, been and xbox gamer since the first one back in 2003, and since then its always been my only home console. I am considering switching to ps4 next gen which looking back from an xbox view its disappointing for me however I feel the ps3 has loads of really cool looking exclusives I never got to play and the ps4 will be the same surely.

The XBox exclusives I can think of are:

Halo (4 was a letdown didn't enjoy it nowhere near as much as the bungie ones)
Gears of War (Not really bothered dont mind playing the campaign but never got into/liked online play)
Fable (Third one was a letdown, seems like Lionhead aren't doing anything with series anymore)
Forza (Okay gets kinda boring after a while, theres always good other races though)

My favourites like Battlefield, Splinter Cell, Rockstar games, Rainbow six etc are multiplatform so thats all okay.

Obviously my choice between Xbox one or PS4 will be down to games, so hopefully E3 should be interesting but i'm not bothered by all this tv/sport stuff the xbox is going to have - most of it won't even be available in the UK anyway. Microsoft just seen power hungry and I don't want to support them by getting console.

I watched a highlights video on the Xbox One that summed it up in less than 2 minutes and... well...

I think I'll give it some time before I decide.

I don't like where things are heading with this new system, to be honest, It's not the most impressive thing I've seen. I'm thinking about converting to PC, I mean I'll get more for my money right?

I heard xbox one might get backwards compatability before launch date. But i seriously doubt they will get anywhere with it. Oh well just have to ask my friend how it is after he beta-tests the system.

I agree but ps4 sounds even worse off than xbox one and fable got worse because peter moleyneaux (the creator of fable) retired after fable 2. also i like my ps3 more than my xbox 360 for its vast exclusive games not on xbox, but at the same time i also learned that most japanese games are on ps3 due to sony being a japanese company.

There was no backward compatability from xbox to the 360 and I'd say it did ok. I don't see what the gaming fuss is. It's going to be a more powerful unit so the gaming is going to be pretty sweet . The Xbox and ps 3 are computers. A pc can multitask why not your xbox. The 360 already does all this. It would be nice to skype of check scores between rounds of COD. I always wanted to watch a movie on net flix withmy friends. Imagine an Evil Dead party. Or Star wars Marathon. Price will be the only thing that slows me down.

I did not see if microsoft will continue the policy of region locking their console unlike sony. Sony's no region lock allows me to enjoy Japanese games and was a huge factor in my purchase decision.


Already said something to the effect that they do not want a region-free console to respect international laws. Sony does this, so that is not a great argument to make.

I really could care less about backwards compatibility when it comes to Xbox One and Xbox, but Xbox 360 carrying to Xbox One should be optional for at least the first year like the PS3 did.

Region lock was never a problem for Xbox 360.
Kinect can be turned off in the menus.

A few interesting tidbits off the news site:


While a persistent connection is not required, Xbox One is designed to verify if system, application or game updates are needed and to see if you have acquired new games, or resold, traded in, or given your game to a friend. Games that are designed to take advantage of the cloud may require a connection
.


With Xbox One you can game offline for up to 24 hours on your primary console, or one hour if you are logged on to a separate console accessing your library. Offline gaming is not possible after these prescribed times until you re-establish a connection, but you can still watch live TV and enjoy Blu-ray and DVD movies
.


Xbox One is designed so game publishers can enable you to give your disc-based games to your friends. There are no fees charged as part of these transfers. There are two requirements: you can only give them to people who have been on your friends list for at least 30 days and each game can only be given once
.


In our role as a game publisher, Microsoft Studios will enable you to give your games to friends or trade in your Xbox One games at participating retailers. Third party publishers may opt in or out of supporting game resale and may set up business terms or transfer fees with retailers. Microsoft does not receive any compensation as part of this. In addition, third party publishers can enable you to give games to friends. Loaning or renting games won’t be available at launch, but we are exploring the possibilities with our partners
.
