How is what RenatoFontes said an uninformed opinion?
And hey, if the PS4 does turn out to be a PS3 with better graphics.. who the funk cares? We’re gamers. The core audience for this “entertainment system” Microsoft is trying sell will probably already HAVE an entertainment system.
Why buy another one for $500 when a lot of the features for tv-watching and streaming are available from your cable provider and a simple Roku box? A lot of cable boxes come with widgets you can overlay onto your TV shows; what MS is trying to do is nothing new.
Wrong title but I’m glad that I clicked. I love indie games.
At the end of the day, this doesn’t mean much to consumers who feel that the Xbox One is two steps in the wrong direction.
Yes, it’s easy to hate on Microsoft right now because what they’re intending to do isn’t deemed acceptable by a lot of people. Until they start telling consumers what they CAN do with this new system and stop talking about the restrictions, this hatred will continue. They have burned too many bridges this year and what Microsoft should do is appoint ONE PERSON who knows the ins and outs of the next generation of Xbox to answer questions. I don’t believe Major Nelson is that person, in this interview at least.
I wouldn’t call a system that relies on licenses and online-checks future-proof. 15 years down the line, when the Xbox Live servers are down and we’re a couple of years in to the next generation of consoles, where will your games be then? Oh sure, you can retort with “but Microsoft will never let that happen.” But who’s to say they won’t? You wouldn’t be able to sue them even if they did.
The Xbox One is the opposite of future-proof, in almost every sense.
And as for that Neonwin article; 1. There’s no proof that it was written by a Microsoft developer, 2. Buying into a $499 closed eco-system, hoping that Microsoft will offer great deals on games is foolish at best. Microsoft doesn’t have a proven track-record of offering competitive prices on their online market places, let alone “deals.”
On the topic of Quantum Break; looks great. Now show us some gameplay and tell us how this whole “tv and videogame” amalgamation will work.
