Question will you get the next xbox?

with more and more evidence that the nextbox will be a "always connected" device and require download of all games i am thinking of not getting it. i will reserve judgement till Microsoft makes a official announcement, but their silence on the nextbox is not helping. PS4 already revield its new controller and has a launch games list forming with Battlefield 4 and thief leading and looking awesome. i have enjoyed gaming on xbox for a long time and will be sad to see it go, but if they require constant connection and kill used games i will not be getting a new xbox.

I'll get a new Xbox ... if the online service is free, and if they have Ratchet & Clank and Gran Turismo. Otherwise, it's PS4 for me in a couple years.

Been waiting a long time since my 360 RROD'ed to get a new box. Ill wait until the PS4 and neXtBOX are out to decide which...always on will be a deal killer.

Im hoping they reverse (if true) the drm crap. Xbox (Microsoft) usually pretty smart about their stuff so I think they know it wouldnt help especially since that is the word about the ps4 and downloading games. People already said they would leave ps if they follow through with that. I may just go with the steam box if any of this is true. But we will fi d outnext month when they reveal the system

Kinda on the fence. Whenever A new Xbox comes out it takes like a year or more to iron out the kinks. Not to mention it will prolly cost 500 when it gets released

I'm probably jumping ship. The PS4 appears to be solving my biggest problems with the PS3 and it seems like a solid next gen evolution. They are adding party chat functionality like xbox live has now, Improved controller ergonomics, and all systems ship with headsets.

The Xbox live experience is already pushing the limits of my patience. Cruise around xbox live and they will try to stick their greedy hands into your pocket at every turn and thats on top of an annual membership fee. Online only DRM BS will be the final straw for me.

I didn't get the last 2 so i dont see the purpose in the 3rd.


Complaint Department Says : No Bluray. "Internets" has a monthly fee. DRM approach that ruins used game sales.....

the list goes on forever.

No thanks. I have gamepads, joysticks and a video source router. Program websites from the computer chair - hit a button - play street fighter on the 55"er and sit on the couch

I really do not see the allure of extremely purpose focused hardware that is known and expected to fail (rrod) all under the guise of "entertainment"

I suppose if you were a neighbor of someone owning a console gaming platform - "entertainment" could be derived by way of sardonic hilarity achieved watching said neighbor cry tears of grief over their poor choice in electronic devices

I'll probably get it but I might wait until a while after launch. This is assuming that my current xbox doesn't give up before then. I just don't like the PS4 controllers and none of the Sony exclusives ever really interested me.

Not with the rumors no... The moment the new gens get rid of hard copies and make you download everything, is when I am done.... I like having a hard copy.

Probably not because my 360 slim is about two years old with about 20 hours of operating time.

Probably not, the 360 hardly gets used now. I don't think I've turned it on in a year. I don't think I can name one good game that has come out on it in the past year. Plus the controller is bulky.
Might get the PS4, but great games for the PS3 are getting fewer and fewer.

Yes absolutely, and as far as the rumors are concerned I will wait till things are actually released to see what is what.

I'll probably get it if the new one can some how get the games I currently own onto it if it's download only. I play mostly online and xbox live is way better than PSN. That said, Heavy Rain was an awesome outstanding game and MGS4 blows it away so I almost want to get the PS3 right now just for a few games. If I can't get my currently owned games onto it, I'll probably just stick with the 360 that I have now.

I own a gaming PC, a ps3, and a 360.

The 360 has been collecting dust for years now due to the lack of interesting exclusive titles, and if a game is out on the 360 and ps3 I just get the ps3 version because I hate the 360 controller layout. I don't see myself buying the new xbox this time around other than to resell it if I can get one early.
