I live with an accent that is notoriously bad for voice recognition so I wasn't impressed by it. Plus remote hunting is the most excercise some people get.

Never bothered playing dress-up with my avatar, I have my grandkids dolls for that lol. Seriously never got into GOW or Halo but really like Fallout 3 and that type of game. Probably a whole new backlog of games to like on a new format.

Yeah, looks great and all, but wait, MircroScam is making it so that you have to install the games to you hard drive and then its linked solely to YOUR xbox, and if you buy a game used, you have to pay an additional fee to lock it to your hard drive. samething applies to EVERYONE and EVERY, SINGLE, GAME (so far)

I have been reminded (sorry mods) this is the area to not talk about Fallout 4.
Rather all things XBox, all things Defiance.The new patch fixed very little.
The new XBOX ONE is not backwards compatible.
I am 56 years old. Has anyone figured out how many xbox 360s I will need (bearing in mind I have never had the rings of doom) to last me until I am threescore years and ten.
I figure I will also be playing Defiance till then as well.

I do not have a console, but I am sad for console players that this is what they're giving you. I'm also slightly concerned that most of you are excited by a few gimmicks and missing the entire pitfall of all the restrictions and limitations they're adding to the system.

Hopefully they get the hardware right on the first try, so that you don't all end up having to repurchase your games if it rings out to whatever color it does, when it burns out.

Blame social media and people that want EVERYTHING in one package. I miss the days when you bought gaming consoles for gaming, plus more attention goes to the development of the game when it is the only option.

Its all giant mess of greed with today's game console developers. They add all that crap so they can jack up the price.

Hello Ryme, you wrote, 'I'm also slightly concerned that most of you are excited by a few gimmicks'.
Well from what I have seen on this thread so far aint no one excited by gimmicks except me and thats because i like the words 'Jasper Heatsinks'
Now if you do not own a console and you have played DEFIANCE (TM) then it must be, Ta-Dah,on a PC. Bet your jealous cause your Politically Confused mc dont have the option for upgrades like 'Jasper Heatsinks'
Politically Confused? Yup, as an xbox360 owner I would vote for nothing but that machine against the playstation and never consider my pc in the running even against the latter mc.
Why?
I want a games machine that can run expandable (on the fly, day and night) games, just games and DVDs. Thats all I want.
A PC is a workhorse but a jack-of-all-trades, IMO the gaming community is not after this in another plastic box, we just want to put our thingy in and play games.

I find it funny how some of the 360 brigade said that, and I will use quotes "Blu ray is going to die on it's arse and the 360 or next Xbox doesn't need it". Funny that this media format has dominated and now the Xbox One has it they are creaming in their tidy whities because of this. The specs of One are pretty nice mind, shame it looks like a Betamax recorder

It seems us europeans are getting overlooked with both consoles..

You got the xbox one on one hand. With all its NFL NBA rubbish that 99.9% of europeans couldnt care less about. The Kinect B.S will introduce a whole new meaning to 'Sexual Predators' online.

Then you got the ps4. With its arthuritis enducing controller, Made for the hands of little chinamen. Built for the 'social crowd' with all the facebook and twitter rubbish.

I think im going to have to invest in a decent gaming PC. As neither of these latest consoles appeal to me at all.

Hello, and may I say I do not doubt that you, as liberal minded as you are (after all you crossed into xbox territory) will understand the irony of PSN I d telling an xbox owner what he already knows. Instead extol the virtues of the invissy box we have yet to see. How well will it run Defiance is the question, maybe some kind soul from the team at TRION could at the appropriate time be letting us in on a few bits of info on relative gameplay.
If its a good machine they could sell it in a cardboard box for all I care. I will paint it with a rainbow and call it ????
I call mine george, what do you call yours.

Are you hinting that I may be a Sony fanboy? Not at all good sir. I own both a PS3 and 360 and enjoy them both thoroughly. I simply do not like the direction that the design department took with the new console, oh and should I ever become the owner of a giant vcr clone I will name it Paulson Ginsberg in memory of its inventor

I will definitely be getting the Xbox One. I game but also enjoy my Xbox Music, Videos and many of the apps that are available on my 360. Everyone will still get premium game service as the specs match the PS3 but they will have improved integration of all the other stuff. I really am tired of the idiots who continue to quote stupid rumors as if they are gospel. Many of them have been disproved already for example the Xbox infinity name and the always on connection. Now they didn't go into depth on the games but it has confirmed at least 15 Xbox exclusive titles 8 of which will be new IP's. I expect a lot more info on games at E3. Well at least there was actually hardware to look at for there release. Looking forward to E3 and the Xbox One's release!

^This^ From my understanding you need kinect with it, if they don't give you an option to buy without I for one will give it a miss. Besides the voice commands are not a good thing, getting up to look for the remote control is the most exercise some people get!

I actually am excited for all of the peripheral uses of the XB1. You call them "gimmicks" yet I call it "streamlined use". I am an avid user of Netflix, Hulu Plus, IE9 on console, Skype and other varied uses of the 360. To think that I can add my DirecTV and other items to my Xbox is exciting for me. As I do not have a kinect now (My living space is too small), it sounds like the new kinect will not have the space requirement of the current device. Now, if we could get a running Pandora app on the XB1 instead of having to go through IE9, I'd really never use my laptop or HTC One X+ at home ever again. Once I'm home, I'd just say "xbox on" and start running it all from voice. That, to me, is exactly what I want. I'm not worried about it "always being online" or having to load the game onto the hard drive. I do not buy used games, I either buy them new or wait till prices drop anyway. And as soon as my xbox is on, I'm doing something through XBL anyway. I still have not bought a Blu-ray player, recently started looking at them, but seems I'll just wait and get the XB1. My only real concern about the XB1 is that it is not backwards compatible. My favorite franchise (Mass Effect) and now my favorite game (Defiance) Will not be playable on the XB1. That's disheartening. It would have been fantastic to gift my 360 to my little cousins who are stuck using the Wii, but looks like I'll have to keep it for when I'm feeling nostalgic and want to play some older games.

Hi there, in your honest opinion, what is Defiance like on the PS3.
I think on the xbox it reminds me of Borderlands.
Yes I do like the game and the series and would not care how it comes to me, BUT it must be of good quality.

Honest opinion? Good but slightly broken. Hoping the upcoming 1.020 patch gets rid of most (if not all) bugs. The visuals are ok for a game of its size and apart from a few server time outs now and again there are always plenty of people online. I like the game and hope it's future is bright

Read the first four posts on this and i got to say i find nothing wrong with Xbox One. I understand the 360 had a lot of problems being the red ring of death but heck it didn't hit everyone. My first Gen system lasted for almost five years before it crapped out. I haven't had a pc that lasted that long yet. Anyway i wouldn't call the can't play used games yet. This is still just a rumor and due to all the hate it is bringing i doubt it will really happen. I know there have been trusted sources on the matter but i doubt they would really screw themselves over by doing this. All that being said the stats on the Xbox One are amazing for a gaming console. I don't watch all that much TV so some of the features will be unused on me but at least that option is always there. Some say they are doing this for more money well the console will probably be close to the same price as the 360 launch price and maybe a little more. I have no problem paying a little more considering its coming with a kinect.

I quite enjoyed the reveal. I like the new features quite a bit and eagerly looking forward to E3 to see the games. I can't understand why people are disappointed that the reveal didnt show more games when they clearly stated up front that this would be about the console.

Sad for Defiance though. Sorta. I mean, I havent played in a month, especially since NeverWinter came out, but I still follow the game. Hoping that thinks will get ironed out (doesn't sound like they have yet) If I do get a ONE (which, duh) i'm certainly not gonna keep the 360 around for one mediocre game that still has many issues.

I'll keep the 360 in reserve though in case ONE dies or something.

I dont see me getting it, probably quit this defiance account and start again on steam ready for when they bring out their console.

Considering all the power it has and all the things it can do its not all that big. Its on average with a desktop PC now.
