Why You Shouldn't Buy an Xbox One.

In case anyone had the "difficult" choice of buying either a PS4 or Xbox One, here's just a few reasons why you shouldn't even consider the Xbox.

-Microsoft/Publishers to receive cut of Xbox One pre-owned sales at retail.
You'll get less than you usually would for a trade-in, and they'll be sold with a higher profit margin in order for everyone involved to get a cut.
Source: http://www.mcvuk.com/news/read/publi...retail/0116137

-The Kinect is mandatory, and canít be turned off.
Always on, always watching/listening, giving Microsoft feedback. That's very intrusive to our privacy, and in order for your system to work, Kinect needs to be working. Hopefully Microsoft's quality on Kinect is better than the 360.
Source: http://www.penny-arcade.com/report/a...ew-motion-sens

-Lending a friend your game? He will need to pay full price of the game.
"You'll have to pay a feeóand not just some sort of activation fee, but the actual price of that gameóin order to use a game's code on a friend's account. Think of it like a new game, Harrison said."
The Only way your friend doesn't have to buy the game (At full price) is if you are there signed into your account.

-The Xbox One Voice Commands Weren't in Real-time
Source: http://me.ign.com/en/news/11383/fyi-...t-in-real-time

-Microsoft confirms indie developers canít self-publish games on Xbox One
Independent game developers who are excited about selling new games on the Xbox One got some bad news on Wednesday. Microsoft confirmed to ShackNews that independent developers cannot self-publish their own games on Xbox Live Arcade, and are instead required to partner with Microsoft Game Studios or a third-party publisher. The policy is completely different from those employed by Sony and Nintendo.
Source: http://news.yahoo.com/microsoft-conf...015050725.html

-Sony are actively pushing 60fps, 1080p
We might see slightly smoother framerates on PS4," he said. "We're working with Sony right now, and they're trying to actively push 60 frames per second, 1080p. You might get situations where the graphics will be a little, but not much, lower quality on the Xbox One. Or, you might get some fixed at 30 frames per second situations in 1080p. It depends on the scale of the game. If your game is going to push the heck out of the PS4, you might have to do some little tweaks [for the Xbox One version].
Source: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/20...ing-and-tvtvtv

-Microsoft using Kinect as Visual DRM
Kinect 2 will be able to employ certain DRM measures depending on what it observes in the living room.
ExtremeTech reports that Microsoft has filed for a patent that allows Kinect to monitor the number of viewers in the room. It then cross-checks this with the maximum number of viewers permitted by the licence that a user agrees to when purchasing or renting content.
If it is deemed that too many people are present, the user will be prompted to pay an additional fee to upgrade the licence.

-Devs express disappointment with Xbox One over Twitter
Source: http://www.destructoid.com/devs-expr...r-254326.phtml

-Sony's PS4 GPU is over 50% more powerful
"Sony gave the PS4 50% more raw shader performance, plain and simple (768 SPs @ 800MHz vs. 1152 SPs & 800MHz). Unlike last generation, you don't need to be some sort of Jedi to extract the PS4's potential here. The Xbox One and PS4 architectures are quite similar, Sony just has more hardware under the hood."
Source: http://www.anandtech.com/show/6972/x...laystation-4/5

-Xbox One uses more GPU power for it's OS systems
"The game is loaded in memory and is fully running. The game has full access to the reserved system resources, which are six CPU cores, 90 percent of GPU processing power, and 5 GB of memory"
With the Xbox One running 3 OS systems simultaneously, it cuts into game resources. While Sony's OS usage is still a rumor, it's very likely that it only needing 1 GB is spot on.

Don't forget that the XboxOne seems tailormade for US audiences, and seems to disregard European and Japanese interests(despite Microsoft saying otherwise)

^No more bullet-hell exclusives then. I'd say it's a shame but hopefully they'll move over to PS4 or Wii U now.

The used games thing is still a major toss-up. Right now they're playing the blame game against the press over the debacle. They're making it harder than it needs to be; just tell us, yes or no, if there's a damn fee.

None of this is leaving a good impression on me. I think in this next gen I'll buy a PS4 and run a PS + Nintendo setup.

Frankly, I don't think enough has been announced for either to really say that one isn't worth buying. For all we know the X1 will make fresh crumpets every morning, and dispense them based on what the Kinect sees, and the PS4 will cost 800 USD. Who knows? Wait til E3 at least.

Yeah, I was out when I heard about watermarked discs. Was actually out personally after finding the 360 very mediocre at best. This all just adds to it. At least there's other options out there. The beauty of console competitions.

But it's a games console ["entertainment system"], not a toaster. But yeah, in terms of games waiting until E3 seems viable. I just don't think any amount of new FPS' is going to pull me in.

I think Microsoft is working with the Government on this one.

Also I have to say that Microsoft's use of the term Entertainment System, reminds me of the aftermath of the 1983 Videogame Crash. Something that is happening again, as we speak. They are calling the X1 an Entertainment System not a game console(XES anyone?), and they have announced that they will be serving a BUNCH of new IPs, which is good of course.

Also, it may actually be a toaster in disguise.
