People defending oh just wait it's in beta, so why jack up the prices in beta, and if it's in beta it should be free to test out. Don't charge people to use a beta something that's incomplete. (Don't bring up well pc's do it, screw that, I won't pay for alpha or betas)

Hey, I'm all for betas. People forget betas aren't demos, they're betas. Tests.
But a bad decision is a bad decision, and it can always be rectified. What I don't get is how Sony is "allowed" by the majority of fevered posters, but Microsoft is "gouging" and "can't get away with this!" - they're exactly the same. You can't possibly hold one set of standards for one, and then change it up for the other.

So this troll topic went longer than it needed to, I see.
Sony figured out a way to make you pay for games you already own. is that a good thing? I honestly don't know much about the service. There's no way they're letting people play old games for free.
'Huge Issue', looks at my Xbox 360. Not really.

The same Sony that raised the price of their console after release in Canada?
Another favorite of mine is when Sony does anything remotely consumer friendly, they're basically worshipped as gods. If MS does anything consumer friendly they get even more hate because it's seen as desperation or a trick to get more money out of people.
I don't get the constant worship for Sony, they care just as little about their customers as MS or any other for-profit company.
Very good points are being made here. Both company's are judged very differently by the fanboys. In fact I'd love to see someone give a good, non biased reason as to why it is that way.
The Xbox one forum should be called the "Xbox vs Ps4" forum.

If I wanted to play old games on my newer console it would have to be me being able to put my discs and play then. I dontvwantbto buy the same game I own again just to play it on a newer console.
You make it sound like you're being forced to do that which is just dumb.

Wii U can play Wii discs, PS4 just got PlayStation Now in open beta status which made more than 100 PS3 games playable on it, but the Xbox One..... well it can't play 360 games in any way.
Both next gen consoles use x86, a different architecture than last gen machines. Ruins backswards compatibility. It would be nice to have it, but I would guess 90% of x1 owners have a 360 anyway.

Uh, my xbox 360 is in my HDMI IN slot on my Xbox One. So, yes, my Xbox One DOES play 360 games. And this is fine with me until they release another way. Whats your point?
So that's your definition of backwards compatibility? ;)
