well that seems like a big mistake , i can understand it not being backward compatible, but why can they make it that people who are play the same game but on a different xbox(360/one), play together. i know my nephew mostly plays with his school friends, and this will put some under a lot of peer pressure when the rich kids start to upgrade

Never a truer word said.

I knew the games wouldn't be backwards compatible because of the architecture but 360 controllers won't work on the One. That's sticking the knife in. The new controller isn't much different from the old technology wise and surely there is enough bandwidth on the RF range to cope???

Ah, but once a few people have bought it for the new gears of war or halo 5 or pro evo 4765, their mates will have to upgrade to stay cool.

I think Microsoft is sounding it's own death knell for this new console.

always on

One of the nice things about a console is that you can play your games on or offline.

Microsoft's new console means that you must have an available internet connect, even to play single player games! Diablo3 anyone!!

I won't be surprised if Sony announce a different strategy for their new PS4

I don't think Sony will announce that different a console to be honest. They have been very quiet, maybe letting Microsoft hang themselves or maybe letting them take all the heat and test the waters .We will find out on Monday/Tuesday at e3 probably.

The always online personally doesn't bother me. I can see how it would effect a lot of people though. Also I'm sure the hackers are rubbing their hands together with glee. If they do it over like they did Sony they would be in serious trouble

That show talked more about what you can do with your TV and movies more than actual gaming, unless you love sports games

News is they have spent a billion on games exclusivity. The show was more of the other stuff it could do ,other than gaming like you said.I wasn't interested in that part either though to be honest.

They've already said e3 is all about the games

429 quid, cheaper than I thought it would be to be honest. Still not getting one on release though.

Yeah i agree, game lineups are great. I'm loving titanfall and of course halo 5. I'll get it for that I'd imagine.
