    Xbox just lost a customer today. When they force me to buy a Kinect and always be online and all the other crap... I'm officially getting a PS4. Maybe down the road when X1 goes down in price I'll grab it for the kids, the Kinect is cool for them but right now my daughter is 6 and has no real interest in that.

    Good job SONY for not trying to nickle and dime us and for that you will most likely win this round of the console wars. Got my XBone alpha box for testing:

    I got my xbox in 2000 or 2001, my xbox360 a year after it launched. I've never owned a playstation, but I think I might be switching for the next generation. All this Xbox One crap is too complicated and I just want to play games. I'm 99% sure they've lost me with this next generation.

    Ok it's official, The new Kingdom Hearts has been announced for PS4, I have no reason to get this system since Halo is a shell of it's former self.

    Same here, I have been an xbox owner from day one, I have never had any interest in having a PS. They may have lost me as well. To save me, they better have games that have sparks coming out of it's arse. That's all I can say.

    This guy is switching.

    Could be a blood bath for the Xbox One...

    Here’s hoping that Microsoft is proven wrong in its bet that consumers won’t care about these decisions. Because even if the company does a complete 180 and reverses its Xbox One policies to conform with those established by the PlayStation 4, there’s no way that I’m giving them my money for this generation of consoles. Buying the Xbox One would, simply put, be rewarding bad behavior and would send a signal to Microsoft that it can go even further with limiting consumer choice in the future without risking a significant backlash.

    1. Plug into TV
    2. Play games
    3. Repeat.

    Seems easy to me, what's the fuss? Xbox has the best online experience, game lineup, and partnerships. They do know how to make money, I'll grant everyone that fact. Sony is inferior and with the dumb mini-pad in the middle of the controller I'm out.

    Everyone complaining about Internet access requirement is posting on Internet forums with...
    I N T E R N E T access. Seems ironic.

    The EA presentation showing their new console games was in-cred-i-bull. Madden, FIFA, Battlefied were all off the chain. But they're for PS4 too. Not sure how many exclusive smashes MS will need to overcome the apparent backlash but I'm doubting it's a realistic number. My own personal observations from around the web lead me to believe MS is going to regret this model.

    What happens when internet connection goes out and you can't play your game? You HAVE to have an internet connection to even play single player now.. How is that NOT a problem?

    Guess what? If cable goes out I can't watch TV either. Can't remember last time that affected me. Seems like an infrequent problem.

    Heck even if you drag your Xbox on vacation like I do sometimes hotels have Internet access. It's just not the deal breaker for me that it seems to be for everyone else.

    499 vs 399
    Always online vs Not
    Pay for XBL vs Free PSN
    Pay for used games vs Freely trade or borrow YOUR games
    Have to sign online once every 24 hours vs Playing when I want to
    Force me to buy Kinect vs Optional Kinect like equipment

    Plenty of deal breakers to go around.

    I don't even know how anyone could defend the Xbox at this point. Granted I went with PS3 over 360 so this won't require much soul-searching on my part, but the Xbox One is a fairly unmitigated disaster at this point.

    It's useless guys no showing him the light, it's too late, he's got X's in his eyes MS has already brain washed him.

    Xbone getting killed in pre-orders

    http://uk.gamespot.com/twitter-battle/xbox-vs-ps4/

    Just compare the specs http://www.anandtech.com/show/6972/xbox-one-hardware-compared-to-playstation-4/2 the PS4 is running GDDR5 while XBone is running GDDR3 the difference in the way these two play games will be noticeable especially later on in the life cycle of the system when games will become more demanding/stressful on the hardware.

    Feeling outnumbered here. Can everyone else be wrong about XB1 sucking but me? Regardless if I was a shareholder I'd be calling for heads to roll in either design or marketing for MS.
