    Ms is fucking up consistently lately

    I have to agree with Fairchild ...storage is always an issue with ALL products
    I guess they want to shove another shit cloud service down our throats

    Being able to expand storage without being forced to pay for their overpriced hard drives would be a step-forward...

    Also, getting pissed off at or favoring either the ps4 or xbox one at this point is silly. There's not enough data out there yet to really have a strong preference yet.

    Yes there is.

    XBOX ONE:
    Requires online activation of every game you buy/install
    Can't trade used games between friends
    Can't buy used games off ebay for cheap prices
    Requires online check at least once every 24 hours
    Requires stupid ass kinect to function

    Anyone actually buying this is just completey stupid and/or (likely 'and') a COD sheep.

    Sony let you use whatever hard drive you wanted when upgrading the hard drive on the PS3. It was just a standard laptop hard drive. I spent $90 and upgraded my 60GB to 1TB. It can obviously be done. Microsoft just doesn't like to relinquishing control.

    Two of your statements are deliberate misrepresentations. And I say "deliberate" because you have made a post in here already that clearly demonstrates you know them to be false.

    But all those points are true as of today. Let's break it down:

    XBOX ONE:
    Requires online activation of every game you buy/install (confirmed by Microsoft...each game is installed and then linked to your online profile/gamertag which you have to sign into)
    Can't trade used games between friends (I mean sure you can give your friends your copy but they can't do anything with it, unless A) they sign in under your profile or B) pay (full price) to install/activate under their profile)
    Can't buy used games off ebay for cheap prices (Again, sure I guess you could sell a disc on ebay, or buy some disc off ebay, but you still have to then install/activate under your profile which will cost you whatever price Microsoft wants to charge - so you're paying twice basically)
    Requires online check at least once every 24 hours (confirmed by Microsoft in a few articles online today)
    Requires stupid ass kinect to function (confirmed by Microsoft today. Why? Who knows...do I really need a camera watching my movements to load and play a game? sounds stupid)

    I don't like this one bit.
    I'll stick with my 360 for the handful of times I play it a year.

    Well, 360 > ps3...
    The online multiplayer alone is worth it.

    I don't and never did care about Kinect.
    I don't care to swipe my hands to move through menus and speaking aloud.
    I have one but I used it like once or twice.

    I don't think anyone cares about Kinect. It was just Microsoft's answer to the Wii. The Wii sold like crazy and Microsoft tried to cash in on this new motion control market. Kinect hasn't been very successful, but if they make it mandatory for the new system then maybe in their heads it justifies it's creation.

    The Xbox One might be the death of the Xbox. None of those mandatory features sound appealing to me. I mean, I've never owned a 360 (I'm happy with my PS3), but reading about the One makes me never want to even PLAY a One, let alone OWN one.

    I just hope the PS4 doesn't suck. Will the preorders for these systems start pretty much right after E3?

    It's difficult for me to imagine that the PS4 will suck unless they hop aboard the "always online DRM" train like EA and MS have done. Don't fuck with a system of selling games that has been established since the 70's (playing games on copies you bought and can sell). Like with PS3 games, you can CHOOSE to buy a physical copy of a game on a disc, OR you can go for the convenience of downloading it from the PS Store, knowing FULL FUCKING WELL that you cannot resell the copy you bought. If MS gave people the option to buy physical copies of the discs without having to install the fucking game or always be online or downloading the game online, it wouldn't be such a potential disaster. If Sony also goes for the "always online" option, it will look like the era of home gaming will be in for a horrific downturn.

    I was more thinking about the prices being announced but this too. Both of those announcements will be made at E3 though.

    So first you deliberately misrepresent information provided today, and then you straight up make shit up... seriously dude... I get that you're a Sony fanboy, but some of your complaints of the new Xbox are about things that we have no information yet to indicate whether or not the PS4 will employ similar strategies. Thus, there's not enough information at this time to really be toting the superiority of one over the other. And there likely won't be until just before the consoles are released.

    So anyway...apparently Blizzard is flailing for life...diablo 3 to ps3 this winter.

    It's sad to see such a great company fall to mediocrity and games that just hog resources and barely live up to their legacies.

    It's shitty, but the shareholders come first and that is exactly who the target audience was geared towards yesterday. They want to be reassured that this product will make money well into the future. Microsoft played it perfectly, as E3 will be the place to put most xbox gamers doubts to rest. They know if you are a Sony fanboy you are not going to buy the product anyways.
