Not unless they get exclusives I actually care about. Halo 4 was garbage and 5 will be too. I was done with Gears after 3. The Wii U is only $300, but I don't own one because there aren't games I want on it.

For those who dont have one yet, Would you buy one at that price?


I don't think it's the Kinect that's the problem, I think it's the Xbox's power, or lack of power that's the problem. Why buy an Xbox when you can buy a Ps4 and play the better versions of games? And this is a valid question.


Exclusives/controller/achievements etc. Why did people buy a ps3 last gen and play multiplats on it when the competitor had the better versions of those games? Also a valid question.


Unless the game was fundamentally broken(like the PS3 version of Skyrim) the games played exactly the same on both systems. The PS3 also had a better range of exclusives and this may be surprising, but a lot more people couldn't care less about trophies/achievements than do.


+1

XBOX first party exclusives blow (aside from Gears). That is pretty much the only reason why i owned a 360.

I would be the most shocked person in the world if MS actually delivers great new IPs and matches Sony. Highly unlikely, i dont believe them as easily as others do cause we all know MS are just a bunch of liars.

It may surprise you to learn that a "better range of exclusives" is entirely a subjective statement.


It's not actually. A better range doesn't mean better quality. A better range means their exclusives were spread across more genres and it's fact that the PS3 exclusives were of a wider range than 360 ones.

$349 won't happen, MS would suffer too much of a loss. Here is actually what I could see MS do to really push Kinect sales:

SKU 1: Xbox One + Kinect to $389
SKU 2: Xbox One + Launch game + 1 month Live for $449

The only way to compensate the loss the Kinectless SKU, is when someone buys a game for SKU 1 or use the profit earned with the sale of SKU 2.

Even if you paid me, I wouldn't get it.




or maybe get your money and resell it...I suppose it's a fair deal.

349 would be the best but they won't lower it that much.

if they're smart they will do 399 soon.

Again, subjective. Xbox Live arcade has thousands of games across many genres. Please stop passing off opinion as fact.

That picture does not represent the entire generation. Nor was it intended to.
