Xbox One - And why I don't care.
[size=18pt]The official Xbox One site:[/size]<br />http://www.xbox.com/en-US/xboxone/meet-xbox-one<br /><br />All those new "features" are really killing this system for me.<br />1. Do I really care about interacting with other people online through my game system? Not really.<br />2. Do I want my gaming system to require a broadband connection? No.<br />3. Do I care about social networking? Hahahahaha! (see answer to question 1)<br />4. Do I want TV to distract me while playing a video game? No.<br />5. Do I want an always online game system equipped with a microphone and HD motion tracking webcam that can be used to spy on me in my own home? Unquestionably no!<br />6.DO I want a game system that can not play used games? NO! Xbox One games will include a one system use online activation code. Once activated, anyone whom the game may be sold to on the secondary market will be forced to by a new activation code in order to play the game. Hinted at elsewhere that the new codes will range between $9.99 and $19.99 for price.<br />7. Is a seventh reason to not buy this really necessary? No.<br /><br /><br />What a disappointment this newest generation of consoles is. Wii U (potty humor joke), Xbox One (359 steps backwards), and PS4... oh wait, has Sony actually not screwed up the PS4 yet? Either I've missed some PS4 related announcement somewhere or Hell must have frozen over while I wasn't looking... but they still have ample time to mess it up before launch. Let's face it, the PS3's not exactly the champion of reliability, so even if they somehow manage to not mess up some aspect of the system or it's functionality pre-launch I'm still planning to avoid it for some time to follow.<br /><br />So, Xbox One, discuss.
