After the poor show from Microsoft, this is starting to look tempting

Absolutely, the XBox ONE looks like a shocking option. TBF, it's the perfect shape for launching through a window to nab a PS4 though.
I have a wii u but will be upgrading my 360 for the new xbox one, looks stunning. Also wii u is a great piece of kit, just need more games!

Ha ha I thought exactly the same thing. It turns out that the Wii U might not be such a bad prospect after all. It's PS4 and Wii U for me - I think that's the perfect combination really as they'll have different types of games, different "gimmicks", and a different focus all round to make it worth having both. Microsoft can shove their new xbox up their backside...

What is it that people don't like about the new xbox one? I know that they didn't show much in terms of gameplay but you know that the great games will be there. At least they shared more info than sony did at the ps4 launch.

I totally agree that the xbox didnt come off too well at launch but I think it is still too early to make final judgement.

Cant wait for E3!

This says it all, better than I ever could.

It's worth pointing out that this may have "shown more" than SONY, but they did this 3months later as "a reaction". I don't know anyone that wasn't underwhelmed.

I knew that waiting the trolls out would be worth it. I never understood what they thought the next xbox was going to be. The Xbox One is EXACTLY what I expected from Microsoft and was one of my reasons for getting a Wii U. Sure it has it's uses, I'm not saying that it doesn't have a purpose, but it is not a games console. Right from the announcement of the Wii U I knew that Xbox would come in with a device that is practically a limited PC, a good PC mind, but a limited one.

I watched the PS4 announcement, currently owning an Xbox 360 and enjoying it, and I was impressed that Sony had learned from their mistakes with the PS3. I watched the Xbox announcement and was frustrated that they do not mention that it can plays games until about 40 minutes in. Yes it is assumed to play games but that should also be it's focus.

I also remember someone on the Xbox team slating Sony for not showing the console at a console reveal. Well I have to say to Microsoft, "Why did you show off your new console without any gameplay?" That is much, much worse than not showing off a black box with LED's and cooling vents. Yes E3 is for games but at least give us something to chew on for the next two weeks.

EDIT: @dfunked, The Wii U does do TV and Sports in practically the same way as the Xbox One.
@TomWantsRezz, The Xbox One TV service is only available in the US at launch. It has already been confirmed.

It plays games, which is enough for me!!!
My other consoles and PC haven't got a look in since I got my Wii U. Lego City is so damn good, Rayman Challenges is awesomely addictive and I haven't even scratched the surface of Zombi U or Nintendoland yet! Heartily recommended by a jaded 30 year old gamer!

People don't like the Xbox One because of it's Kinect spyware, forced installs, games tied to accounts, internet activations, US focus & TV obsession. It's a shake down & anti consumer. Only a idiot would consider buying it

Do not buy now. I have the Wii U and cannot see the point of owning it at the moment. Nothing to play apart from rehashes. Save your money until some good titles come out (Super smash bros, mario kart) and then buy it, it should be cheaper by then.
@ Kais
That was meant to be a tongue in cheek stab at the Xbox fanbois who will inevitably vote this cold, despite their next gen savior being a massively underwhelming machine (imho)

* Fee to play second hand games
* Online connectivity required at least once a day
* 500 GB hard drive too small (considering the mandatory full game install requirement)
* No obvious killer exclusives
* Too much kinect / TV / social gimmicks
* Xbox Live fees still likely to continue next gen

It's the last point that really grates for me. If I'd paid for Xbox Live Gold since release day I'd have spent about £250!!!! I find that absolutely insane just for the privilege of playing online, and it's the main reason I gave up on xbox a long time ago.

We have got a badass over here.

But seriously the Wii U is and was never going to fail. Nintendo will still be making hardware and software even after people "give up" on gaming.
Every single Wii U threads ends up like this........surely if you dont want one then you dont buy one. Move along.

Don't agree with that. Nintendo has made it's name doing games and has lead the way for decades with top quality gaming until the Wii U when it tried to get a slice of the wider multimedia market and failed. People won't give up on gaming but it will evolve it to something different which Nintendo might be well placed to deal with (not with the Wii U!) but if not they'll make quality games for other platforms. They have had the handheld market cornered for years until smartphones took off so I watch with interest what they try and do next on that front and suspect their future in hardware may rest on what they do next there.

Subscription fees yet again for basic services..when everyone else does it for free(that's an extra £200-£300 for the gen..provided they don't increase the price for Gold)..

All discs you buy have to be registered online and are now tied to your account.


Not being able to lend or borrow disc based games to/from friends...not even single player ... (unless you log in via their account).

No game rentals.

It looks like you can't just sell a game on disc. It has to be unlocked from your account..all used games will require a fee to be paid as Microsoft/3rd parties will be taking a cut from every sale. Used games will cost more and have less trade in value as a result.

Forced online for every console...even on single player games ,no playing unless you have broadband connected once a day. If your broadband goes down for more than a day...no gaming for you. No taking your console to play elsewhere on holiday or staying with family members unless they have broadband...whether you're playing an online game or not.

Forced Kinect which is always on and always filming/listening.

..and you even have to buy new headsets for voice chat from the sound of it as the old ones won't work (unless you want Kinect only conversations)


None of your old controllers work for multiplayer, none of your digital or retail content from last gen can be played on the new machine (although that applies to PS4 as well...until/if they get their cloud based stuff up to speed)...only Wii U will let you use controllers from last gen and is fully backwards compatible.
......

If people buy into all the anti-consumer stuff in the Xbox One....well..they deserve what they get going forward.
I got the Wii U basic a few weeks ago and I think it's great, the perfect companion to my PS3 (and future PS4 when I can afford it)

I was on the fence about an Xbox One or PS4 until the reveal the other day, I DON'T want Kinect, and apparently it's forced and the console won't run without it. Also, blocking used games with re-licencing fees is very shady, I hope Sony don't add it.

Got a Wii U at launch. Mainly because of the Amazon pricing error I'll admit. However, I don't regret it as its already given me hours of entertainment and will no doubt give me many more especially when Nintendo hits with a constant stream of their big titles.

I thank God, that theres a company out there willing to make a video games console and be proud of it because Microsoft clearly don't.

Keeping an eye on the PS4 as I have higher hopes for Sony but only if they eschew the kind of anti-consumer pre-owned games block that Microsoft have embraced. If Sony use a similar method, then Nintendo will be laughing all the way to the bank.

It also amuses me that people say Nintendo are for the casual gamer, when they're obviously deeply commited to making video games and Microsoft are only keen to show off sports titles and Call of Duty, which in my experience is exactly the sort of games the casual gamer is into.

Wrong. The Xbox One has exclusive features in Ultimate team. No idea what that means yet. It was confirmed this morning that Ultimate Team will be on PS4.

fifa 14 has ultimate team exclusively on the xbox one



Really?!?! Wow. A snip then. XBox have been have been peddling "exclusives" like extra map packs/guns or DLC that comes out a month earlier. Meanwhile, SONY have spent their money on developing ACTUAL exclusive games that the XBOX has no answer to.

The Motorstorm series, Heavy Rain, Little Big Planet series, MGS4, God of War 3, Infamous, The Last of Us and (my shout for best games of this generation) - The Drakes trilogy.....

There are XBox alternatives to Killzone and GT5, but nothing I feel that actually surpasses them.

Open your eyes folks.

The only reason I'd buy the xboxone version is if the football itself was exclusive.
In all honesty I found the Xbox one quite underwhelming. It just feels like more of the same. And my god if the machine stays that size it hardly complements your TV. It's an eye sore in my view.

Having never owned the Wii and now drifted back to Nintendo from 360 with the wii u, it was the best decision I made. I've fallen for nintendo's charm once again and realised what I've been missing. Especially by the time the years out with Mario kart, 3d Mario, ssb and wind waker. Wii u is well worth the time!
