Microsoft has always angered me . . . But what they did with the XBone was just too much. Congratulations Microsoft, i officially hate you more than EA. And i will proudly extend my middle finger to you whilst walking away with my new ps4, just to be spiteful of course...

I would like to point out that Sony has given out free games on a regular basis for the PS3 with a PS+ subscription while Microsoft is giving away games from now until the Xbox One release. I've been a fan of the Xbox 360 launch in 2005 and even I think this is a blatant bribe for existing customers to switch to the One. I, for one, will not be bribed and will be waiting approximately 6 months before committing to a console. Although, I won't lie, it's looking like I'm getting a PS4.

MS has said they will continue supporting and releasing games for the 360 for 3 years. Maybe if they see many people not going to Xbone they will get the hint...

Microsoft has removed used game restrictions and 24 hour check in. I for one am now considering buying an Xbone. Still requires kinect, but I can just throw a towel over it. Thoughts?


Screw it. I've already had it with Microsoft when one employee wrote on twitter "Don't like always-on xbox? DEAL WITH IT." in reply to xbox fans (like myself). Also, when one of microsoft's people at E3 said if you don't like the always-on xbox then you should buy a 360. I mean effin' REALLY?!?!?! You're telling me, a hardcore xbox 360 fan, that if I don't like what your next console is offering (which I was so excited about this next-gen before all of this) then I shouldn't buy it and keep my 360???

Yeah, I don't care anymore what they reverse or whatever. I've put thousands of dollars (literally) into my xbox360/accessories/games. I even dealt with the stupid three rings of death three times, having to send it in repeatedly even when I got a new game for my bday and had to wait a month to ship it to get fixed. So I'm done. Nintendo even gained my respect by saying this about used games policy, "The answer to the used games debate? Just make such a great game that nobody wants to sell it."

So screw off microsoft, you aren't getting my money this generation. PS4 baybehhhhhhhhhh!!!!




or you could just unplug it...........but if you want it on for voice commands stick a piece of paper over it like i do. i mean yea im a lil paranoid but not so much as to pass up on such a great console.......i mean xbox has consistently had a greater amount of quality games than playstation. idk ive never had an original xbox or xbox 360 die on me and microsofts network hasn't been hacked so........ill stick with xbox. As far as used games........idk like i dont like that the game publishers are technically losing money just so gamestop can stay in business. gamestop sucks so much on so many levels and why should they get to give us $5 for a game they're gonna sell for $30 ? And none of that money is supporting the publishers keeping the multiplayer servers running or making new DLC.

Some cool " facts " you have there, you must have a pretty accurate source. What are these " quality " games you're talking about?

While I love my gaming PC, I feel like my gaming experience wouldn't be complete without a Sony and/or Nintendo console to support it. There are just too many exclusive games that don't come to PC for me to forgo consoles. I also need my wimpy handhelds to play Pokemon and Persona 4 Golden, etc.

EDIT: I want to put extreme emphasis on the fact that I chose to exclude Microsoft from my essential console manufacturer list.
