Aside from really looking forward to the Kinect and all the games coming down the pipe in the coming years...another major reason (to me) has me pumped.

Achievements. I absolutely love them. They give games a lot more replay value as well as extra goals and a sense of accomplishment (Seriously?!!?).

If Microsoft did away with achievements I would more than likely still buy the console but I would be rather emo about it.

As I was going up the stairs I met a man who wasn't there. He wasn't there again today. I wish, I wish he'd go away.

You know Sony does a trophy system right?

I'm just not sure why this is a deciding factor. Then again I don't get achievements or trophies in general, so what do I know really?

I only game on the PS3 right now. I sold my 360 and games at GS August 28th for nearly 500 in store credit. No joke. I wanted to play all the PS3 exclusives I kept hearing about and I was NOT disappointed. Every exclusive I played, I loved. But the trophy system just doesn't do it for me. It seems like an afterthought, thrown in, no love. I realize it was added later in the PS3s cycle but meh, just doesn't do it for me.

And it's ONE of the deciding factors.

You should be ashamed....and shouldn't admit it....I'm not one for telling people they need to hide...but stay in the closet....

I like the Avatars.

If I ever decide to buy an Xbox One (when they lower the price and remove the Kinect), it will be because of the AVATARS.

Wait - so trophies for the exact same accomplishments are not enough? So what you really mean is you are excited for the gamerscore. Please correct me if I am misinterpreted that.

If I might ask, what about Kinect has you really excited? I'm always curious about that.

Trophies >>>>> Achievements.

An arbitrary number is never better than a pseudo-tangible trophy.

Mexican Spanish to Spanish Spanish is like Ebonics to English. It sounds terrible and needs to be eradicated.

Ironically Kinect is one of the factors for me not buying Xbox one. Can't please everyone i guess.

I'm not huge into achievements but do enjoy going for some in certain games. But trophy system is just terrible. I'm not sure why either. Just seems boring and meh.
