    Re: The Xbox Thread

    So people got what they wanted. They listened to everyone and people are still hating?

    Also, does this mean that the shared library feature is done? I was onboard for that idea.

    Seems like they completely did away with installation as well. Cool idea, but it doesn't bother me too much that they're doing away with it. Now, maybe i'll consider buying it next tax season. Definitely not getting it at launch now, but i'll probably end up getting it sooner than later now.

    More than anything it just shows how un-necessary all those policies were in the first place.
    "Oh, you don't like us shitting down your neck about things you paid for? Sorry about that!"

    Like I said before, come november no-one will remember any of this bollocks. I'd be wary about this happening again down the line with both consoles, but its all going to be people shouting "Killzone!" "COD" "FORZA" "DRIVECLUB" "KINECT" "PRICE" until then...

    Yes, I am. They thought initially that they could fuck us all over- what does that say about their intentions? What does that say about what could still happen to this system? I don't want any bad surprises on its limitations. I'm looking forward to getting a 3DSxl, a WiiU, and a PS4.

    DAMN! Shit is spicy in video game town these days! Holy shit! They really needed to do this to stay in the game.

    That said some of the damage is done. Microsoft is now a wounded brand and theyll have to do more than this to win back trust. Theyll still have to do something about Sonys pricepoint which, realistically was a bigger threat than their shitty policies. The kinect thing too...

    This does make the difference, as far as i am concerned between having the console be an option in the future, or not.

    Also:
    Irony: having to connect to the internet to download a patch so that you dont have to connect to the internet. Thats a thing.

    Who's hating? I think it's the smartest thing they could have done at this point... even if it was pretty much a no-brainer.
    I'm still waiting for someone to write an idiotic article about how it was an "obvious PR move that was made at the last minute."

    Also, does this mean that the shared library feature is done? I was onboard for that idea.
    I would assume it will still work for games that you purchase digitally.

    I'm definitely warming up now to the idea of owning an Xbox One, it just needs to be $100 cheaper now and come without Kinect (i don't care how "integral" it is to the system...don't care about the voice activation BS, I'm not that lazy i can push the buttons on the fucking controller thanks)

    Nice! I think it's great that they reversed their policies. I was on verge of pre-ordering PS4, but now I'm thinking of ordering Xbox One instead. My "previous gen" console was Xbox 360 and I really liked it, because of the exclusive games and the controller is much better than PS3's. Only downside on Xbox I could think of was the Xbox Live, Gold wasn't really worth the money, well until now that they are giving free games like PS+ and I really hope they'll continue doing this on Xbox One too.

    I've never had a problem with the PS3 controller, but at least now the new Xbox controller has a d-pad that looks like it might actually function in some capacity.

    I don't agree about the exclusives really either, but that's all preference.

    I wonder if this is less about the consumer and more for the publisher. As a publisher, I would not like the sharing with ten people idea at all. So I think Microsoft threw everything out there, saw the reaction from both sides, and then made a final decision.

    Maybe if people keep up the complaining, they'll get rid of the mandatory Kinect bullshit too.

    Cool I guess but then every massive tool would be a hypocrite going to get Xbox One now due to these changes after they slandered it.

    Not if the reason they were slandering it was because they didn't like the previous policies that they just changed. That's the opposite of a hypocrite.

    Jesus you'd think some people were actually upset that the DRM and internet check-ins were getting removed. That's just ridiculous, anyone who supports practices like those whether it affects them or not needs their head examined.

    The amount of gratuitous, mindless slandering on EVERY Xbox outlet over the past week wasn't warranted. The amount of shit I seen that "swore allegiance to Sony," seeing them buy an Xbox One instead would be hilariously hypocritical.

    I wasn't all too crazy about it but it didn't bother me 1/8th it did like most of the people that blew it up to Universe sized proportions.

    There is no way microsoft caved in on this without real publisher support. I'm assuming they got it and went forward with a backtrack. A bit shocking to be honest, i've heard first hand from major publishers they wanted this.

    The community uproar worked. There's still no way some of their models can be adjusted, i think they're just saying they wont personally enforce some of the policies but allow the developers to do it for them.

    Without the non-stop bitching from people, MS probably wouldn't have even made the choice to get rid of all their bullshit.

    Anyone who "swears allegiance" to any video game system has bigger problems than hypocrisy.

    No and by their right they shouldn't have to. But then again it is 2013 and money is the almighty ruler of every outlet no matter what so I'm not surprised. No, I didn't condone them doing their practices either.

    yah but some of those things really made sense. the problem was choice. they didn't allow a choice, or at least an illusion of choice (key the matrix theme) and the backlash was severe.

    someones probably getting fired over the messaging aspect.

    What Tea said is basically the reason why I don't like the PS3 controller. PS4 controller is a step to right direction, it seems more ergonomic, but the stick/d-pad layout is still the same. And because of the positioning of the sticks it's slightly awkward to play with PS controller. I'll admit that the original x360 d-pad wasn't that great, but it's mostly used for some simple stuff like item shortcuts or some other simple commands, so it doesn't bother me.

    Oh and the X360 exclusives, now that I think, there weren't that many interesting exclusive games to me on both consoles when I bought x360. So, basically Mass Effect (when it was xbox exclusive) and Forza (+ controller) were the things that made me buy xbox.

    I still think that being $100 cheaper is the hammer in the backyard brawl that is the console war. If I hadn't already ordered PS4, I would still be leaning that way for that reason even, and I'm admitting something here, in the face of better exclusives on Microsofts console. For now. PS3 EASILY had better exclusives over 360

    Yeah, I'm in this camp. Still, I'm not that excited about any exclusive titles that are coming out for either of the new systems, except for Planetside 2. At this point I really just want Final Fantasy XV, and that's coming out for both.

    Agreed. All my friends say otherwise and I don't get it. PS3 had a lot better exclusives than the 360 had. The only thing the 360 had going for it that interested me was Alan Wake and that was it and that's on PC. Gears and Halo have never interested me in the slightest.
