    I'm pretty sure they totally handed next gen over to Sony. Hell, even the WiiU might have some success after this failure of an announcement.
    Sparky and 86mcss said thanks for this.

    The gaming aspects will be shown at E3 in a couple of weeks. At least Microsoft showed the fucking things. Best Sony's been able to do is some blurry pictures in a video.

    i never liked xbox anyway. i dont understand why someone would pay an extra fee to get their xbox online when you already pay an internet service fee.

    plus from what I have read, the games are not backward compatible and you cannot loan games to friends without paying a fee.

    ill stick with playstation.

    Yup, the fee is what killed it. It's rediculous that you pay for Gold and they still cram ads down your throat, then to charge a fee for used? Plus, the whole Kinect facial recognition to sign in thing is super creepy. Don't get me wrong, I love the voice activation of kinect and the whole "Xbox On" thing is cool as shit (reminds me of Star Trek's Scotty "Computer!"). Plus, the box itself is fugly and the kinect peripheral resembles Deep Thought from the Hitchhiker's Guide movie.

    Got my Ouya yesterday and will likely pick up the Steambox or maaaaybe a PS4.

    I have a bluray player already. It's called a Ps3. Kids play games on the Wii U now, and enjoy it.

    Xbox One doesn't really do it for me.

    So this isn't AS terrible as it could be. Though a friend just pointed out this screws service members deployed.

    the 360 was too money grubbing for me. This is worse.

    Tell me about it, just looking at the prices for them.
    USA = $499
    Europe = €499 or $661.72
    UK = £429 or $668.85

    So then it costs $169.85 MORE to buy in the UK than in America, hmmmm. Yeah think I'll pass on this.

    The cost of the machines (XB360) is only a small amount compared to the hidden costs of ownership.

    I think Microsoft is trying to emulate their successful Windows 8 strategy with their new console [/sarcasm]

    WTF happened to their (MS) corporation? It's like someone's driving them into the ground on purpose.

    My boss had me pick up a laptop a few weeks ago. I was pretty sure it said it was Windows 7, but it shipped with Windows 8. I'd heard it was bad, but it's amazingly bad. They took away so much functionality for no reason at all. Thankfully you can download tools to bring back the standard start menu and pretty much disable anything that resembles the disaster that is Win8, but it's still pretty sad that you pretty much have to do that when the new OS is supposed to be a step forward.

    As I stated - it turned out to be one developer (Twisted Pixel) doing that. Whatever, let the bashing continue.
