Got my XBox 360 but don't really play on it that much......

iPad for the win..... Gaming on the go and also a lot easier to carry around than a console

I'll most likely be buying it, but I'm waiting until E3 to see if I'm hooked.

The only reason i'm not buying it is I don't buy a console to watch t.v I buy it to play games and sony have said the ps4 is about gaming not sharing a socialising although there is a share button on the new dualshock controller. :)

I was interested until I read this over at Kotaku: http://kotaku.com/xbox-one-does-require-internet-connection-cant-play-o-509164109


This so called 'daily internet connection requirement' reeks of 'always-on internet' and we know what that means... more DRM rubbish just like that delightful SimCity game that EA spewed at us earlier this.

Anything that constantly needs a connection can stay as far away from my house as possible.

Nope I don't care if its got a blu-ray drive or not. Sony pioneered the Blu-ray age, plus their console seems to be more powerful at the moment so I'm going PS4. And I don't like how Xbox are now forcing kinect on people when most really don't like it. Just like their new windows 8 metro system. Many hate it and think its unecesary so what did they do. Make it compulsory with no way of deactivating it. And I can see it leaking into their Xbox system just like their horrid windows phone OS. No thank you Microsoft if I wanted funny coloured tiles I'd redecorate my bathroom.

I'd have to admit though my retina ipad has replaced most of my media needs just lately. I'll see how that progresses this year and might just upgrade my ipad instead lol.

The thing I hate about Xbox is that you have to pay extra to play your games online. I never get a console straight away I always wait years to the deals come out. I brought the 320 GB Silm line PS3 with 4 games and a DVD for £250 just after Christmas 2011. I never paid full price for a game I see a game that I like in the shops/online and bid for it on eBay.

Ps4 users will have to pay for the online service this time round, using thr PS+ service.

I have pre ordered an XBone but it looks as if i will be cancelling this and going for a ps4, ms looks like they dont have a clue what they want to do with this, and thr whole used games thing is ridiculous.

I agree, I don't know what Microsoft are thinking. From what I have read Microsoft are gonna lose a lot of customers due to their absolute bloody ridiculous restrictions with Xbox 360 disc compatability and the preowned disc fiasco. There are other stupid flaws aswell where aparantly if you don't log on within a 48 hour time frame you will need to re register. How true that is I don't know.
I'm seriously thinking of going to the dark side n go for a ps4 as I don't know what they expect to accomplish, if what I've heard is true then ps4 have won this Xmas sales hands down.

Microsoft are on the slow road to recovery:

[b]Xbox One Will Not Require Internet, Restrict Used Games
No more game lending restrictions, daily check-ins or region locks

Microsoft has changed its policies regarding Xbox One’s internet requirements, used game restrictions and more.

Contrary to the details announced earlier this month, Microsoft has now confirmed news originally reported on Giant Bomb that Xbox One will no longer require an internet connection to play offline games or need to check in every 24 hours; instead, internet will only be required when initially setting up the console. Like on Xbox 360, "playing disc based games will require that the disc be in the tray."

Xbox One will also no longer restrict used games, and will instead allow discs to be exchanged in the same way they are on Xbox 360 with no additional restrictions for trade-ins or lending games to friends. The system is also no longer be region locked and all downloaded games will function the same way whether your console is connected or not.

"Since unveiling our plans for Xbox One, my team and I have heard directly from many of you, read your comments and listened to your feedback," Microsoft's Don Mattrick wrote. "I would like to take the opportunity today to thank you for your assistance in helping us to reshape the future of Xbox One. You told us how much you loved the flexibility you have today with games delivered on disc. The ability to lend, share, and resell these games at your discretion is of incredible importance to you. Also important to you is the freedom to play offline, for any length of time, anywhere in the world."

In addition to being available in retail stores, Xbox One games will still be available for download on day one and will be playable on any Xbox One console.

"These changes will impact some of the scenarios we previously announced for Xbox One," Mattrick noted. "The sharing of games will work as it does today, you will simply share the disc. Downloaded titles cannot be shared or resold."

"We appreciate your passion, support and willingness to challenge the assumptions of digital licensing and connectivity," Mattrick concluded. "While we believe that the majority of people will play games online and access the cloud for both games and entertainment, we will give consumers the choice of both physical and digital content. We have listened and we have heard loud and clear from your feedback that you want the best of both worlds."

Microsoft's decision follows mass confusion following the announcement of Xbox One in May. At E3 last week, Sony announced similar policies for PlayStation 4, which will not require an internet connection or periodic authentication and does not restrict used games.

Xbox One is currently available for pre-order from various retailers. For more information on the console, including every confirmed game so far, see our Xbox One wiki.

There is no recovery for Microsoft now the damage has been done. They don't care about their users andnits blatantly obvious. Forcing kinect on everyone will also be their problem.
