I mean even aside from all the DRM stuff, the games they are showing at E3 look like shit. Just terrible. Definitely will not be getting this one anytime soon, yikes.

Sony's conference tonight should be able to blow this out of the water if they show some Naughty Dog stuff.

lmao, $500??? WTF. I built my pc for $500 in December 2011 (granted, with lots of deals) and it absolutely shits on everything Microsoft just showed.

I'm just in awe of how terrible that showing was. The only thing that didn't look terrible was Battlefield 4, which looks just like Battlefield 3 I played two years ago.

The big show-closer was the ex-Infinity Ward's new shooter/mech battle game. I would have believed it was a 360 game, albeit a nice looking one.

What a joke. 

I hope Sony has improved their controller and made it more like the 360 controller, because I have zero interest in Xbox next-gen.

I thought that Roman game looked good as did Battlefield 4. I am excited about the Witcher 3 as well. Other than that nothing really stood out. If PS4 announces a 400 price as has been the rumor, they could really hurt the Xbox One. 499 seems counterproductive to their marketing this console as an all-in-one entertainment hub for the family.

I switched over to Xbox from Nintendo when the first Xbox came out but I don't like anything I've heard about the Xbox 1.

Probably going to make the jump over to PC. It's a better platform for the games I like anyway. Phone Post 3.0

$500 is a fucking disaster, who is going to buy that? It's nowhere near the leap from Xbox to 360.

Forza 5 looked good but still with their kind of cartoony garish style. Battlefield 4 looked PC comparable. Witcher 3 I thought looked worse than PC Witcher 2, but it is an open world game. Still, where is the 8gb of RAM? Why are the textures in every one of these games so weak given the memory?

Other than that everything looked downright bad to me.

They're thinking "that costs money and we want people buying our new $60 games and not old games that are $20".

Why is backwards compatibility such a big deal nowadays? No one complained when the Mega Drive couldn't play Master System games.

In the cartridge days it would have been very difficult and expensive. With cd/dvd based games there is little or no reason not to provide it. I have a ton of PS3 games that I am quite fond of and would want to be able to play them. People expect more because the tech to provide it is easier to get.

Just because it uses the same physical format doesn't mean anything as far as how easy it is to actually run those games.

XBOX One is shit, but why is everyone surprised or bitching about the $500 tag?

It's not for kids anymore, their primary target age group is 18-35.

You're going to pay $500 and have that system for 5-8 years.

People bitch about the $500 console but pay for that shit XBOX Live subscription, and buy DLC packs left and right.

They could make the best game in all of human history and I still won't get one until they get rid of that 24 hour mandatory sign in bullshit.

If they want me to spend 60 dollars on a game then I want to fucking own it. If I'm going to have to deal with that shit I'll build a PC, at least I'll save a lot of money on games in return.

Because who is going to pay $500 for a system whose games basically look like 360 games, and that has all that used game DRM bullshit?
