Why I think the Xbox One is better

(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?

        • The ps4 only plays games? Lol Sony owns Music unlimited and Video unlimited. Netflix, hulu and a bunch of other apps will also be available on the console. The cloud is known by many in the video games industry(first person to deny the infinite power being Mark Cerny) to not have the infinite power Microsoft has been saying it will have.Also, you can set your ps4 to update your stuff.

              • Online checks is a big deal because what if I don't have an Internet connection for whatever reason? Offline play is the most basic feature a console can offer. The cloud is a gimmick. It is literally an industry buzzword invented to create hype. It's been around forever, except now it has a name. My main complaint about the media part is that the Xbox One seems too focused on it. The announcement left a bad taste in my mouth that it's a $500 TiVo box with video game functionality, as opposed to a game console with media functionality. I've lost faith in Microsoft since Windows 8 and the direction they've taken it. It's clearly designed for touchscreens, and yet desktops--the vast majority of which do not have touchscreens--are forced to navigate it using mouse-and-keyboard interfaces, so it handles pretty terribly. It's shitty design at its finest. It's like playing Skate with a mouse and keyboard--it's an awful idea that should never have been conceived by anyone, ever. But back on topic: My last complaint is that Kinect is being included. It's driving the price higher than it needs to be. Xbox One is in the same dreadful position that the PS3 was in--being the higher-priced console by a lot. And I would never use it anyone, so I'd feel guilty to have it just lying around in its packaging, never to be used even once.

                • I like how you say you dislike the playstation controller because of the 'weird symbols'. They're basic shapes that you learn when your like 2 years old.

                    • I'm getting a PS4, but the reasons, I won't be getting an Xbox One is because 1. I can't borrow games - While I rarely let friends borrow my games, I do bring them over so we all can play, but I can't do that now. note: This may not be a problem for you if you don't have friends just sayin. 2. Always Online - I like playing online because it's fun and the cloud feature is amazing because developers can fix their games a lot easier without patches. But what if the internet goes out and you still want to enjoy the single player well you can't do that now because you ALWAYS need to be connected. So no matter how many badass exclusives Microsoft has if you don't have internet then you can't enjoy them. 3. The Kinect is ALWAYS watching - While this is not that big of a deal, I do like to have privacy when enjoying my games sometimes, but how am I suppose to have privacy with that weird Kinect thing always looking at me. Well that's about it, I do like the cloud feature though because If I'm correct the Xbox cloud feature will allow developers to update their game ANY time while the PS4 is only for things like downloading your purchased content from anywhere, or backing your data up to download from anywhere. At the end of the day though, I have friends that are buying an xbox one so I'm just gonna play the exclusives at their house.
