Hate to say it, but Xbox one will win the console war.

Here is the thing, I already have things with nearly ALL of those features connected to my tv, you know how including a camera on a device isn't a big deal now that EVERYTHING includes one? same deal. I think it will win because the Madden, COD, HALO, Gears crowd that just buys the yearly installments of a few franchises but come out in droves for them all tend to go XBOX for a number of reasons.

The hardcore crowd will all go ps4 for petty revenge like I did and buy all multiplat releases on it while eventually choosing to buy everything because their need to play everything will eventually win out, and that other crowd will just go x1 and move on, driving console sales while individual x1 game sales especially outside of major AAA releases will do extremely poorly unless they are exclusive and force us to buy the occasional x1 game.

It pretty much IS a all in one box.


No it's not. It's a hub that you plug all your currently-existing devices and services into so you can do s*** you can already do, just with the privilege of saying you're doing it on the X-Box One (as long as you pay Microsoft to access those other services you can already use without it).

I know people are stupid, but I really hope people aren't quite at the level of stupidity that makes non-gamers think they need a 500 dollar box that will charge them a monthly fee to access all the services and apps they already have.


Yep, I can't for the life of me see why running my cablebox through the x1 rather than through another input on the same tv is supposed to be a groundbreaking feature.

but who is going to buy the ps4 to watch netflix?



Funny enough, more people watch netflix on PS3 than 360. PS4 will probably end up being the same way.

That said, I can watch netflix on my computer/phone/wii/3ds/360/ps3...3 of which are hooked to the same tv with the others typically on my person and the computer sitting 5 feet from said tv, why exactly do I need yet another device with the same feature?

Lmao! Console war.

There is no console war this gen. Just PS4s marching down the streets and XBones tightly crammed into prison camps.

Yo dawg...I heard you like TV. So I made you a game system that lets you watch TV on your TV.

Exactly, the non-gaming casuals won't eat up the Xbone because their non-gaming apps are behind the Gold paywall.

They aren't going to pay for Gold just to watch Netflix.
