Why are you not getting an Xbox One?
ThugETH posted...Because I want the most powerful console hardware for my money.
The hardware, exclusives and online services are ll equally important to me. After E3 MS lost me for nextgen and the only way I'll consider an Xbone in the future is if the Slim version isn't as ugly as the launch model and they gain a good library of exclusives.
I'm also 36, married with kids and run a pretty big gaming/tech website, I don't troll message boards!

I am getting an XBone, just not at launch. I am only picking up the PS4 as I am ready for a new console in the living room it has been too long without getting one. Both launch line ups are weak, although Infamous in the old "launch window" has me very excited.
I might get one but the reason I'm not going from 360 to X1 is because of the DRM policy. That ruined it for me. Maybe Sony was going to do the same but they didn't. They also didn't fight customer tooth and nail to try and keep it.
The graphics issue a lone might have made me switch later on but this made the choice right away for me. Because of the issues with the cell processor last year I also paid a lot of attention to which system was easier to develop for. Something the gaming media was actually concerned with as well which I liked.
Same reason I'm not getting a ps4 on launch. No games and I have a 2 year old to make happy for xmas.
Your right but that's why the DRM does matter because if X1 would have kept the DRM in place it would have made used games more expensive. Donm't know about you but I always get my games used to:
1. Save money
2. Try the game for free and return it within seven days for any reason I want. Great for games with no downloadable demo.
No games I'm interested in
Deus Ex: Human Revolution OST Title: I Never Asked For Discs
One reason and one reason only.
as much as I've loved the last 2 Xboxes, I refuse to buy an xbox with that vile accessory**
**I reserve the right to buy an xbox one should they release an kinect free one.
I don't buy ANY console at launch.
Please visit 261, the gamefaqs politics board so you can become more informed about the process before voting.
Because the "features" aka requirements are a boon to sexual predators, child molesters, hackers, assorted criminals, terrorists, and organizations willing to pay for the data collected by the Kinect including big government and other companies and nefarious individuals.
I'm not getting either system because neither of them have any games I'm interested in at launch (a common theme with console launches for me). Each of them have one game I'm interested in within the first year that's not Minecraft. However, I can't remember what the PS4 one was and the XB1 game is also getting a 360 release.
One reason and one reason only.
Damn straight. If their original policies had stayed, I would never even consider getting one. If they release one without Kinect, I'll be first in line to order it on NewEgg, even if I only buy exclusives once they drop in price.
I refuse to buy XB1 until it's sold without Kinect. No, I'm not a Sony fanboy. See? http://viper.shadowflareindustries.com/images/myroom/DSCN0220.JPG
