    1. Price drop down to $400? Still won't be enough if they don't have good exclusives.

    2. Yeah not making good games is a huge let down.

    3. I think the reason they don't have FFXIV is because they wanted to be assholes about requiring Xbox Live Gold, and they hated the fact that SE didn't require XBLG for FFXI.

    4. No he means the 10 people on your list that you can share games with. Selling and trading Digital games. That sort of thing but without requiring online access every 24 hours or it's useless.

    7. Sony is way better than Microsoft. Sony has given me a refund on games 2/3 times I asked, and they didn't do it the 3rd time because the guy didn't have a clue on text chat how to do the refund, and I was too lazy to call in and get it done. Just the fact that an Xbox 360 games were only able to be activated on 1 console instead of 2 and the fact they rushed the console out without proper hardware design, and denied Red Rings of Death for the first year or 2.... Microsoft has horrible customer service compared to Sony. I asked for a tray for a PS3 hard drive because I stripped the screw, I got an indian guy, I politely escalated, and 5 minutes later we were done and I got a new tray in the mail for free. Granted if I was an idiot and didn't politely escalate it would have sucked but... Sometimes you have to know how to get results. a Sony Rep on the official blog even suggested to someone in a red reply to contact customer service and see if they'll give a refund for the game that they bought that just went on sale.

    8. Sony didn't have the most expensive console. We had the console with the most bells and whistles.

    If you wanted to watch HD movies you spent $200 on an HD DVD player. You also bought that if you wanted your stuff upscaled. You wanted wireless controllers? Pay extra. Wanted to move your save files around? Buy memory cards. Want to download a bunch of games or movies? Buy an overpriced hard drive. You want Wifi? Buy a $100 dollar adapater.

    I know you hate me bringing all that up, but the price difference was $200-300 dollars and just HD DVD and Wifi covered that, and the hard drives were just ridiculous in pricing. The Xbox 360 was arbitrarily lower pricing. Just Xbox Live Gold made the console more expensive in 4-6 years time by itself.

    Releasing an Xbone without the camera will bite them in the ass.

    A lot of people were mad at Sony for not including a camera with every PS4 worrying that not having it will limit the amount of people who buy one, and that will limit the amount of people who will be able to play games that require it, and that will limit the amount of power for developers to utilize it, and that will hurt games.

    By offering a model (with the hopes to sell tons of them) without a camera they screw themselves over because developers utilizing it because it was pretty much required to own one, are going to see a smaller userbase able to play the game they developed with that requirement in mind.

    Of course the Xbone has so few exclusives, it might not even matter.

    Sorry for the triple post, but... I haven't been on as much lately. Playing FFXIV a lot.

    Xbox didn't get FFXIV: ARR because they wanted to separate their players from the Windows and PS players. Squareenix would have none of that. One of the biggest pushes on their part was to have every one of their players be able to play together.

    Yeah, that sucks. I would love to play games with friends who have Xbox without having to buy one. :(

    Isn't this the same reason that the xbox 360 version of portal 2 did not get steam support? I recall being able to play with pc players on my ps3 copy. The game was even cross-buy on pc/ps3. Clearly valve wanted to unify everyone and M$ prevented it.

    I believe you are correct. Microsoft is just like the childish bully who has to intimidate others to get "friends." Their policies and actions are what drove me away from the brand. Very anti-consumer.

    TO make me really serious about picking up an Xbone, Microsoft would need to package in one of the following exclusives.

    They wanted to separate people because that's why they can't enforce the FFXI players to pay Xbox LIve Gold. Because they connect to SE's servers they don't have all the power and control to block access. If they make them play on separate servers they can put an Xbox Live Golden Gate in front of the I.P. Address.

    Which is complete nonsense. And I respect Squarenix for telling them to forget it.

    For me, they would literally have to combine the trophy and achievement systems. I am way too deep into my trophies to switch loyalty now, and my time is better spent in playing games that add to my trophy rather than PC/Xbox/Mobile titles. There are still PLENTY of great titles on my PS systems that I have yet to play, so I'll spend my time and money on those.

    I own one and love playing Titanfall and Forza 5, but if the XBone was my only console I would be very bored. Its lack of its go-to System Sellers is a big turn-off for many.
