Bungie.net will be undergoing maintenance today from 10 AM – 2 PM PST and may experience outages or limited features.
(For me) 1.) I have never bought a used game before, so I honestly don't give a shit about that. Seriously, how many of you actually consistently buy used games? They're not much cheaper, and I don't like the possibility of the disk being all messed up, or the instruction booklets being messed up. For people that DO care, Sony is leaving used game sales to the publishers, same as Microsoft. People keep forgetting that 2.) It has a more convenient game sharing system. I don't know about you, but I think it's much faster and easier to send a digital copy of your game to one of your friends, then bringing the game with you and handing it to them in person. Also, I can now quickly give games to anyone, no matter how far they are. 3.) The online checks literally don't affect me at all. And I highly doubt it will affect a lot of you. I've never been in a situation where only my internet goes out, and not my electricity. The internet check in can be done through a phone that is tethered to your X1 anyways. This feature isn't a big deal, it's 2013 the internet is a standard fare right now. The Xbox One having this feature means hackers and pirates will pretty much be eliminated. Developers will also be able to take advantage of the cloud completely, by offloading the processing of massive, persistent worlds and you'll always have an updated system, games and apps at all times. You'll also be able to access your entire games library from any other system thanks to the fact that games are stored on the cloud. 4.) Xbox One will focus heavily on the Cloud. The Cloud is a fantastic and is the future people. The fact that Xbox One is focusing heavily on always being online and the Cloud is a GOOD thing. 5.) 300,000 live servers....need I say more? Gameplay when playing online should be smooth and all around fun for pretty much everyone. 6.) Better exclusives....Halo, Ryse, Forza, Quantum Break, Titanfall, Project Spark, Dead Rising, Killer Instinct....all looking great. 7.) The controller is much better. I've always hated the Playstation controller, I dislike the weird symbols, and both control sticks being in the bottom is extremely annoying. The Xbox controller looks much better, and more comfortable as well. 8.) Much more media friendly. I don't get how you guys want to shell out 500+ dollars for a machine that would only play games. I want the full package. Xbox Live has always had better party and chat systems. It's also going to be a great entertainment hub that combines TV, music and gaming. It'll work with my cable box, will feature its own TV guide and I'll be able to jump among games, Skype, movies, music, television and the Internet seamlessly, using the Kinect’s voice and motion commands. I can play a game and watch a movie simultaneously, or to Skype with friends while I play..all in all, it sounds great. I'll add more later. Anyways, that's why I think the Xbox One is better and why I'll be getting it. If you're someone who never has internet, then sure, get a PS4, though I doubt that will apply to any of you. Which do you guys think you'll get, the One or PS4, and why?
