Nothing is constant but change. Sometimes that shit sucks.
The one thing I was really hoping for. So fuckin weak.
You're right! I totally want to spend $400 on a new system to play my old games on, too!
Overly sarcastic, I know... No BC on arcade does blow, but I don't care on the discs... I have a 360 for those...
5 for over 1000 TA ... Nice
Thanks. Went for a lot of hard stuff in one playthrough. I had to dashboard so many times lol.
I remember that all too well. Nice work!
Only way I could afford a new console is to sell the old one so that just isn't happening if I cant play my old games and STUPID amounts of XBLA
yeah I will rather keep my 360 and save up for the new console. out in November I think so it's still many months left.

Making an x64 based console running an NT kernel. Introducing the problem of the original and the fact windows 8's kernel is flawed
and that the same thing as the original xbox will happen.
I figured it was too hard to do but would have been nice, just cant afford the new one whilst keeping the old
well you can still sell it and keep your gamertag. Depends how much you want to play your old games.
Spilner only wants to play burnout, video board games and watch movies
I guess he's out of luck then :) Blu-ray is nice for movies though.
If ps4 had achievements with scores just like xbox i would not hesitate to change to ps4 instead. I now think that ps4 will be much better moneywise.
That still sounds like bullshit. Microsoft say only you can use your account so a family with 2 children each with an account will have to pay to use on each of them.

If that is the case Microsoft best be ready for some very angry customers
Another thing if this is the case I bet there will be a MASSIVE increase in piracy.
All Sony has said was that their new system WILL PLAY used games. Didn't say whether or not there would be a fee...if Microsoft is really doing this,
go all in on Sony doing the same thing!!
Until it is released anything could happen but this will be the death of xbox if they do it.
Duanedust, if Microsoft did do this, I would be Sony wouldn't. That would give them massive appeal over the xbox.
I agree with you, was just proving your point of the article sounding like bullshit. Microsoft isn't dumb enough to do this if Sony doesn't. It would be suicide...
I hope neither of them are dumb enough to do it. Anyway at the moment it is all just rumours and guesses. We will have to wait until release.
Another CVG lie. It's already been confirmed FALSE!
^^ I freking hope so...
I hope so. lol
Way too much in my backlog to just move on.
I'm with you there. Time to get working on it!

Agreed. One day maybe, but day 1? not from what I have seen.
Not a deal breaker for me at all. I went from a PS2 to a Wii to a 360. You can have more than one setup, you know ;)
You haven't met my wife it seems Lita!
Then work on talking your wife into it :P
Have warranty till May on this one and also enough that I want to play (incl. GTA5). So to buy it then is a good possibility for me.
My wife is already sold on it.
But I agree, time to get cracking on the backlog.
I'm going to hold off on buying any new games...only one I'm not sure about is Lego Marvel Super Heroes.
Hear hear. Better to wait after the first wave consoles, so I don't have to run into RROD and the like.
My wife DID say that it's a possible Christmas present depending on price.
Haven't liked what I've seen so far. That might be because I'm looking to buy a games console and not a media center. I don't think MS can convince me to buy at launch
I like what I have seen so far. I'm not into the media stuff, my main Xbox is in the front room under my SKY box. All I wanted was awesome looking games...

and although it was light on games, I liked what I saw.
That's what E3 is for ;) I'm not mad on all the extras but you can see what the console will do for gaming :)
I'm liking it, bit sad re backwards compatability....but looking forward to getting one
That's another thing, I don't care about graphics all that much. Gameplay is where it's at. If I want to see something gorgeous I'll look into a mirror
^ hahaha! The only possible downside for me is the rumours of games being linked to your tag and having to pay to use on others. My kids and Mrs Kinetic will flip if...
they can't play my games on their accounts. Also trading in funds my new purchases so I await news on that.
Dave, that is pretty much confirmed, sorry to say. What the fee will be on the other hand... if it's a few bucks, that will help the devs earning a bit more money, I am
all for it. If it's the price of a full new game, MS is going to have trouble with their costumers.
It sounds like the 'used game fee' will be the current new price of the game on the marketplace. http://tinyurl.com/owemjrm
You are paying for a licence if you buy second hand. So I can imagine it being at near full cost. That said you can also sell your licence once, but the details are vauge
atm. Also it does require connection to the internet once every 24 hours from what I've read. So the machine is not truly offline. All the TV crap is also only for the US
thats built in.
All this DRM crap can do one. Looks like I'll stay on my PC if thats the case.
Purple Top Hat? I always thought you had a penis and that this hole lesbian thing was a charade. Now I gotz proof!
It could go either way. 1. Sony rides on the positive wave and disregards all poss. of fee's for used games, 2. Sony sees the poss. of earning more money and follow suit.
Yeah, totally ruined.
^This. OCD ahoyyyyyy!

That's probably the best joke so far.
I still have no idea how this will work. Any sites out there who've clarified how it will work?
You're gonna love this!
The return of VHS and Betamax
And maybe just maybe the Dpad will finally be fixed....

The d-pad has been fixed for a long while with the transforming ones, I think.
Nope, they were terrible, even worse.
I disagree, though I never use the saucer configuration. The raised d-pad made a huge difference.
For fighting games it was utter crap.
And more fragile than original sucky d-pad.
How so? I've had no problem with mine at all.
My Gears 3 Dpad broke, and is malfunctioning, and from a video game store they have several returns of transforming d-pads controllers.
From one friend "I had to return 3 controllers in the first couple of days until I got this one that so far is lasting more than a month."
I'm pretty sure the solution is to just not play fighting games.
I have to agree with FOKEN, The actuation point is too large and i've had 7 snap whilst playing.
i found the chrome D pads to be the worse of the lot.
It looks beautiful. Need to know a price.
To expensive probably.
I've been putting money away, so I think I have about 600. That fuckin better be enough.
It'll be expensive because it insists on being so much more than a fucking gaming console, which is all I want to pay for.
I agree. I want it for gaming. I will never use Skype, TV, or the DVR crap it has more than likely.
Wow, a halo tv series developed by Stephen Spielberg, that could be good.
I'm excited for that! I'll be watching it on my actual TV though lol.
They keep pushing the use of internet, Skype, etc. I and most other people have a proper device for that i.e laptop or iPad, why the hell would I use my snail-like Xbox.
If you can Skype and Game at the same time (I missed most of the reveal) then that's all I really need, it would be kickass to see the person you are playing with.
It looks like a VCR
I think it looks amazing, if the price is right count me in. IT BETTER BE BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE!!!!
BC is right out. Completely different architecture. Also, fee on playing used games with HD installs being mandatory.
Oh, and Kinect is required. Also appears as if XBL titles will not function on it either.
XBLA not working is a huge hurt to me, considering my backlog is around 125 games. I'm sure I'll be getting it at some point, but not day one.
From 360 to One
:) stuff the tv....get to the games

Took 'em long enough
Microsoft: Mathematical genius
EA Sports, oh good golly gosh! My favorite thing ever! I stayed up all night for this! (wake me up when it's over, please XD)
well that said nothing..we did not already know.apart from the design of course..
360 to 0ne to infinite and beyond??? calling it now...............
As Francis said... MS got it right. They won't from Xbox (zero) all the 360 degrees around to one!
Hahahahahhahahaha. ^ genius.
I knew there was a reason i shouldn't have had a meal before this ... let's see shall we
Oh hey look ... there's a actual console, now i'm intrigued lol
awesome, you got it too :D
Yes ma'am. :)
Yes. It says so in the second guide. Also I seem to remember that was what I was missing too.
Når det det popper? Jeg har allerede vært inne i kjernen og teleportert ut fra den kampen, så da popper det med en gang jeg har ødelagt nok vegger?
E litt usikker, men eg meine den poppe sekundet du har alt. Bruke du karte?
1. No achievements. (This will probably not happen thou)2. No retail games to buy in stores, only downloadable games. (This would suck ass)
3. Always online! That would screw gaming over big time.

4. Not being able to play old xbox games on new console (Will more likely be a fact)
First 3 things are very important for me that they go my way.
5.. if they release it with forza motorsport 5 included in the box :P
no achievements would be my least concern from your list! Then we`d be back to the true roots of gaming...
1. Achievements are too profitable, that is clear from how they have been increasing the amount aloud. 2. It is impossible to do. We are years off until everyone has a
connection possible of handling this. 3. Always online will not happen. According to Microsoft upto 40% of xbox users are offline online gamers. They would not cut their
potential sales by that much. 4 is most likely certain. Only certain games could be played on the 360 from the original xbox. Doubt they will bother with backwards
compatibility although saying that I think the marketplace games will still work. So might be wrong on the retail games.
When there were no achievements i always wanted something like that and its the reason i only play xbox. So to say true roots of gaming. I have to dissagree but understan
understand what you meant by that. But people look at gaming different and for me the most fun is that games has achievements even thou it is contradicting at times.
For example forza 3 that is just a boring game and i play anyway to complete it but that is what i like to do even thou it is not that fun to play that game. Everyone
look at their gaming different. So if no achievements i would not get the new xbox. :)
Sounds great dropkick! :) Hope you are right!
(ANd there would be no gamerscore competitions like gtasc wich would be so boring, i really like those things). :)
hahahahahaha just now i saw your comment smurf! Its ok if it also includes a lifetime of twist candy as well. Oh my, Forza 5 would be worse than stormrise 2. lol Puke!!
3 & 4 are my problems but MORE kinect will also be an issue for me, I dont mind it but improve kinect playability for other games. (using FORZA as an example here)
There will be achievements but will there be backwards compatibility? ALWAYS online will ruin so many things for me!! :(
SMURF IS RIGHT LOL! It has Forza 5!!!
When i saw forza i was like "SHIT"!!!! It cant be true... :(
5. No red ring of death. Better fans and that doesnt sound so bad/much.
I speak the truth. Come walk in the light of the prophet! lol
EA = GAME OVER
Maybe my dream can finally come true in my lifetime. Since i was a kid i wanted to be able to fight anyone and it would measure my skills or something. Maybe i can
kick srfsmurfs ass. Yay!!
Lol. EA with their "Live updates". How many unobtainables are coming our way!?
I so want to show my fighting skills without getting hurt! Please make ufc good so i can kick peoples ass.
FORZA YES! lol
Sick of them saying look at games and how they play and then show pre rendered cut scenes
you know you will be hurt anyway when i beat you digitally! ;)
My money is on Smurf
Smurf wont stand a chance. If it would be realistic i would love to fight a real fighter. And kick their ass. I know lot of fighting. Trust me. ;)
Hingedmonster - thats a good point, but if they can change it anytime, maybe they can change the requirements of the achievement without having to pay MS to test patch.
Also a very good point. Well I guess this may be one of the reasons they killed the online pass
maybe they change achievements so they will be harder to obtain, or adding extra achievements suddenly without any dlc
Yeah, this is my fear that ous completionists has to stop trying to be completionists. But that is something i really do enjoy today even if it most of the time is agrind
Saw him a couple times with Robby Krieger and was never disappointed. Jim Morrison is the most famous, but Ray was the driving force behind their unique sound - R.I.P.
But what do you think about what's going to happen after the MS reveal?
I wish I could be able to see it live but have an early morning which means missing it. Well someone message me if it involves destroying everything we know.
I just want the new Xbox to be faster on XBL and not make a noise like a washing machine whenever I put a disc in (and yes I have a new slim and it's as noisy as ever).
My slim is quiet as a purring cat. Try removing yours from atop your washing machine.
Giant enemy crab?
XD I won't forget that game.
The new Xbox is already outdated as it will not support ULTRA HD TV'S.... unless they add a patch to upconvert.....which is still a fail anyway.
Ultra HD TV's? ... i have no idea what they even are? I like to think i'm generally ontop of technology as well, clearly i'm not. Regardless, seem pointless.
Until ultra he is more commonplace ita wasted resources
in 3-4 years Ultra will outnumber normal HDTV....and the Xbox one will have 5-7 years left.....hence my point.
Only 10k from the six digit club!
You da best!!
