    The ONE good thing that could have saved Microsoft's future the Xbox has now all but guaranteed to be DOA when it is releases later this year


    Basically you will no longer be able to play more then 24 hours without an internet connections and will always need a broad band connection

    Rental games will not be allowed

    The simple act of taking a video game to a friends house is all but dead

    I don't get the FUCK YOU Xbox owners for thinking you own the games you pay close to $70 a pop for

    The online backlash will get ugly

    So fuck you Microsoft you are idiots


    Sony must be laughing there asses off since they have all but won the war before it begun

    Yup. I follow the gaming industry closely. Basically everyone is saying they are going to buy the PS4 for mass titles. And the Wii U for Nintendo exclusive First Party Software . . .

    The new Xbox wants to replace your cable box. While the new PS4 is more of a dedicated Gaming system . . .

    Gran Turismo 6 is getting released around the same time but will still be on the PS3. That will keep us busy for a few months. So my friends and I are letting the new consoles come out and see which is better.

    thats the thing... they both have pretty much the same hardware... it will be impossible to tell the games apart on a tv

    Paying to play games you brought to someone's else's house is what set people off too . . .

    Agreed of course, but isn't this all a month old? Was there some new confirmation/revelation today?

    I had a PS3. Then I got an Xbox used when we got sick of GT5 and Forza 4 was released. The Xbox just seems like a POS but I don't know why. They both work fine but for some reason the xbox seems like a cheap piece of equipment. BTW, paying for xbox live compared to the free PSN is almost enough to help you decide. Ever try and cancel xbox live, damn near impossible.

    Well you can still buy games used. I mean this is better then going digital only at least until they shut the servers down many years from now.
