The PC master race is indeed superior, too bad it's an exclusive club that takes 1000 dollars or more to get in, which is known for pirating so that a lot of games don't release on it.

 

 

Well...I kinda agree on the pirating on PC. But I disagree 100% on you having to pay $1000 to get into PC. I never ever once paid $1000 for a PC build...The highest I go is $900.

I don't care about the used game deal, I don't buy used games anyway.

That's understandable.

 

The whole internet thing bothers me though.

Agreed...My internet bill sometimes doesn't get paid for a long time. Or also what if I am going on vacation and I go to a hotel and that hotel doesn't have internet connection. And trust me almost all the resorts in Florida never had internet connection. So I never got a chance to play online with my PS3, WiiU or 360. 

 

The Xbox One personally just isn't for me. Which is why like I said I'm sticking with PC+PS4, that's like the best combo.

 

Also I what to add some more...What about people in a military base in Afghanistan? How will they play the Xbox one?

Yeah, PS4 looks like a beacon of hope compared to XBone, even though I understand the used game deal.

Well I am kinda disappointed that the PS4 is charging for online...That the one thing I liked about Play Station over the Xbox. But to be honest I want to really like the Xbox One, because Xbox has some of my favorite games that the other platforms does not have like Fable, Crackdown, Gears of War,etc and also the new Ryse: Son of Rome game looks good. But Microsoft has just been disappointing me with these past news about the Xbox One. I

If you don't pay your Internet bills on time that's not a problem with the Xbox One, that's a problem with not being able to pay your bills on time, any system or device that requires Internet is dependent on you paying the bills to have Internet, so that's not really a charge that can be leveled against the Xbox One.

 

If you go on vacation and don't have Internet in your vacation spots... that's also not a problem with the Xbox One or the PS4 or your laptop, that's a problem with the areas you vacation in.

 

As for military people... why wouldn't their military based have Internet connections? If that military base doesn't have Internet... well I guess being in the Armed Forces sucks huh?

Here's what you do. Get 10 friends, designate them as your 10 family members on the Xbox One.

 

Pool your money together, buy 1 game. Share that game with your 10 friends.

 

You now all have that game.

That you can't play at the same time...

The solution is a work around for "lending" games, not something to create a monster library you and 10 people can have access to.

 

As for the always on aspect my issue isn't with my internet, it's great, I'm never offline pretty much, my issue is with Microsoft. If those authentication servers go down (and they will, because some asshat is going to attack it, probably multiple times during its life cycle) I won't be able to play which is ridiculous. Even Steam has an offline mode.

I just came across this. Apparently, the Xbox One will only be supported in 21 countries around the world.

http://www.ibtimes.com/xbox-one-region-locked-microsoft-game-console-will-not-work-outside-21-launch-countries-1304945#

Granted, this may not actually affect how many people purchase the system since most if not all of the high economy countries are on that list.

Not paying your internet bill on time happens to almost everyone, because there may be other more important bills to pay, many people told that they have that one problem with the Xbox One.   Not only that, what if you live in a third world country and there's barely any internet connection. The whole world has not even developed high speed internet as of yet, but only some countries. Even in the USA not that many parts have good internet, but the highly populated areas like NYC, LA, Chicago,etc. Also nobody is using this against the Xbox One. I'm just not getting one  because its just not for me.

On a Laptop I don't need internet to use it, I can do other things besides going on the internet even though internet is the more important feature. The same is for the PS4.  With the Xbox One the main feature which is gaming will be locked unless internet connection every 24/7 hours. No I have to disagree, the vacation spot is not the problem, what if people want to play offline? People like me really don't care for online gaming and bring our consoles almost everywhere we go, one of the number one factors over PC gaming. Again I am not knocking the Xbox One, like I said again its just not for me.

 

 

 

 

As for military people... why wouldn't their military based have Internet connections? If that military base doesn't have Internet... well I guess being in the Armed Forces sucks huh?

 

Why should it sucks for them? Their putting lives on the line, why shouldn't they enjoy a little gaming? Why shouldn't they enjoy a little Madden or something? I doubt a country like Afghanistan would have good internet connections.

Hmmmm...Good point and agree.

 

 

But like the Rookie said. I got this from the article he posted.

 

Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like more than one person can be playing at a given time, so don’t get your hopes up about playing multiplayer with friends without buying two copies of a game.

 

 

^^^Their trying to work around borrowing games.

900? That's SO much more affordable for me. Thanks Stranglehold, I'll be sure to buy one the next chance I get. I thought this article was interesting:

Read again...I said the highest I would go is 900 bucks. And at 900 bucks you build a gaming rig that maxes out every game. You can easily build a nice budget gaming around $500 and that gaming rig will still be much more powerful than the consoles and you will still be able to play games at 1080p on medium settings which is still good compared to whats on console's. 

 

If you wanna go even lower you can build a gaming rig for at least $350...

 

It just depends on your budget really.

 

Also PC  gaming can be very cheap once you gotten rid of the annoying part which the budget build. After that you have things like Steam which almost always has game sales.

You are correct for the most part. However, It is the fault of the XBone to require internet to play games.

What if I wanted a system that allows me to play games regardless of whether I have an internet connection or not?

Thus, is my largest problem with the XBOne and is also the sole reason I'm sticking with PS4.

At least I don't have to have an internet connection to play PS4 games.

Um, if you spend $900 on a computer, 100 more isn't anything really.  And if you don't have 100 to spare after spending 900, then you shouldn't spend the 900 in the first place.

What if a nuclear emp causes all PS4s to malfunction and die? It is for this reason that I am sticking with the Xbox.

That is one of the dumbest defenses I have ever heard.  I think they are worried more about living then a *vulgarity*ing xbox.

Oh, Dios mio...Temper temper....

 

Its pretty obvious that they are more worried about their lives than an Xbox One. I mean really? Shouldn't that be common sense? But my point was what if they want to play some games, because that's what a lot of people in the service do on their free time. And here is what a US Navy Serviceman has to say about the Xbox One.

http://www.vg247.com/2013/06/13/us-navy-serviceman-calls-xbox-ones-24-hour-online-check-a-sin-committed-against-all-service-members/

 

^^^From that article alone tells us that people in service DO care about gaming and DO game when on their free time.

 

If you have a disagreement no need to  lash out. I was only speaking on the behalf of people in the service and how they feel.

A lot of people in the army do things to take their mind off the war their fighting. Contacting their family whenever possible, Pro Wrestling, video games, and more are up their actually in what they enjoy.

They can play video games, that is fine.  It just sounded stupid to say "But what about people in the military!  They should be able to play xbox!"

 

I was not lashing out, you just took it that way.

I said "what about people in the military", because I have a lot of friends who are in the Marines in they enjoy playing video games and that's what servicemen do on their free and like BigBallerJu said its one of the activities that takes their minds off of the war that they are fighting. Yes I know a video game console should be the least of their worries, but also MS as a business move should not alienate them, when they themselves could make a profit off them.

 

I was not lashing out, you just took it that way.

From your  swearing, I thought so.
