It seems more like a entertainment system more than a gaming console. Might have to stick with the PC MASTER RACE for now.

You say it like it's a bad thing.

It not at all.

Unrelated to the Xbox announcement: Sony shares boom on spin off speculation - May. 22, 2013

Everyone's judging things way too early. The reveal from yesterday was meant to show off the new functions of the console, not the games. We all expect it to have good game functionality. It does have good game functionality. So what should they have done, reveal all the games yesterday and talk about the console at E3? No, this reveal was about the console and the new functions it has. That being the new entertainment functions that are unparalleled by any other device on the market.

They have 15 new exclusive titles and 8 of them are new franchises. It was also stated that more titles are in development now than ever before in Xbox history. It's as much a gaming console, if not more so than the PS4.

And it's not all about the games. It's also about how you play the games. Let's say I'm trying to get an achievement or something for a game. I can pull up Internet Explorer on the side for a guide without having to turn to my computer. Or I can play with friend and Skype with them at the same time. The PS4 has similar functions, too.

As for the specs, of course it's like an average PC. If it were to be a high-end PC, it'd cost thousands of dollars. For a middle-class family, that's like the difference between getting a games console and buying a car.

One thing that's not being given enough credit is the new Kinect. It's too often associated with motion control and voice commands. However, some of the new features it has is that it can read your facial expressions, sense your heart rate, and I think even the blood vessels on your face. This means it can track your emotions. This can offer some very interesting possibilities. As you become more tense, perhaps your character in the game does, too? Maybe the music picks up pace and changes? Maybe your aim becomes a bit more shaky? If taken advantage of, this could be some pretty immersive stuff.

Also, the new Xbox Live cloud, which has 300,000 servers now, means that processing can be done over the cloud, allowing for bigger online matches. That could mean 24v24/32v32 matches of Battlefield 4.

All of that might make one think I'm being a "fanboy" and everything. No, I'm not. I don't like some things about the Xbox One myself. I find the controller to be very unimpressive, especially since the PS4's controller is so unique. I'm just thinking rationally and not getting on the hate hysteria bandwagon that everyone's getting on.

Thank you! I am not into consoles at all either (all closed up systems and meh otherwise. I have Xbox 360 but only use it mainly for playing DVDs), but people shouldn't judge things prematurely. I haven't really seen any pros of Xbox One being mentioned, instead just bunch of "bad" and "crappy" sides.
Also, from what I have seen things go like this: Big company adds new 'feature' on their product -> people whine/complain about it -> months pass and only few complaing about the 'feature' anymore and others are neutral/okey with it. I doubt this will be any different.
Links to users' thread list who have made analytical/statistical/mathematical/cool posts on Symthic:
  • 3VerstsNorth - Analysis of game mechanics in BF4 (tickrates, effects of tickrate, etc)
  • InterimAegis - Weapon comparisons/scoring.
  • leptis - Analysis of shotguns, recoil, recoil control and air drag.
  • Veritable - Scoring of BF4/BF1 firearms in terms of usability, firing and other mechanics.
  • pmax - Statistical analysis of BF4 players/games.
  • Miffyli - Random statistical analysis of BF4 battlereports/players and kill-distances. (list is cluttered with other threads).
Sorry if your name wasn't on the list, I honestly can't recall all names : ( . Nudge me if you want to be included

@Miff: Thanks. Just trying to be a voice of reason here.

Remember how I said I didn't like the controller that much? Turns out it may be better than I thought: Xbox One Controller and New Kinect 2 HANDS-ON! Adam Sessler's Reaction - YouTube

That vibration functionality and better analog stick design could really be nice for FPS games.

Didn't read all previous post.
The PC gaming master race welcomes you all with open arms if you chose to join the bright side!
Agreed !
Given the launch prices of new consoles, at the same price you can build a somewhat mid range PC for BF4 (mid-high if you search for best prices), and then use Steam, GreenManGaming, Amazon deals, and the Kotaku Moneysaver posts to buy games for cheap, not often at release but cheap, and use the not spent money to upgrade your PC in 6 months from mid to real good.
Given you know how to not spend money elsewhere ^^

Edit : just seen this : If New Game Console Reveals Were Honest - Dorkly Comic ^^ it sums up what I think of the new consoles ^^

Quotes of wisdom (maybe)


I'm a battlefield player, good sir. I don't play metro.

PC is no longer PC master race. It's PC mustard race, because consoles need to ketchup :'D

DICE gave so much into making commander better, but lemmings be lemmings I guess.

As a good guy that don't want to use overly glitched weapons, I'll quit using the MTAR and switch to the ACWR until it's fixed

The world needs more people like you


+1, I think we're all in agreement that more MrT3as would be an awesome thing :love:
Although if that was the case they'd use up so much of the world's awesome that there'd be none left for the rest of us! :D

yes, I know, I'm a big-ass hypocrite

Required Kinect? Bad.
Required internet connection once per day? Obnoxious.
Being able to watch TV a main selling point? Outright stupid.
Not backwards compatible? Silly.
Fee to play used games? Horrible.
Hardware is apparently low-mid for a last-gen PC? Horrendous.

Seriously, the only thing keeping me from immediately jumping ship and going for the PS4 is that I have friends on Xbox.


Kinect I have and my younger kids enjoy it , so I won't object to having it this time around , I do like the idea of Skype integration as I use Skype a lot and being able to use it from my living room TV appeals to me.

I don't see the logic in "one a day connection" somehow I think this might not be true , or people have got their wires crossed.

I use my current xbox primarily for TV(lol)

Blu Ray is a logical advancement , more data etc , but unfortunately DVD and Blu Ray are not compatible , lack of backwards compatibility is a hardware issue not a consumer issue , and anyway how many old Xbox game do you currently play? me , none...

The second hand game thing sucks , but then again I can't remember the last time I bought a secondhand game , or as suggested in some of the article I read if I take my games to my friends house "i'll have to pay a fee to play them" this is currently the situation isn't it? if I take any of my EA games to a friend's house it will ask me for an online pass , but I can bypass this by just logging into my live account at my friends house.

And as stated above xbox friends is the sole reason I keep my current xbox and the reason I'll buy the next xbox.

Microsoft and Sony and other tech companies need to learn the the majority of consumers want convenience from their hardware , not optimal features and performance.
