Honestly, it's this internet outrage that I don't get. You guys DO know these are video games, right? Since when are OPINIONS on video games wrong? Personally, I plan on getting the Xbox One eventually, but definitely not at launch. It has nothing to do with whether it is better than PS4. At this point, until we get our hands on it, that is irrelevant. From what I've seen so far, and what I've seen of PS3, there just isn't any reason for me to get the PS4. The games they have shown so far just have not moved the needle for me. The same argument can be made for X1, sure, but the eventual exclusives that will undoubtedly come out for it interest me more and I love that controller.
Yes, the $500 price tag makes sense for the Xbox One, since it is bundled with Kinect 2.0. Whether it is mandatory or not is irrelevant, that is the one that is bundled and is coming out right now. Besides, I think they mentioned earlier that it was required to work. Not sure why, but it is. Maybe that will get redacted, too, who knows. The point is, the Xbox One is coming with an extra piece of equipment, so it is going to have a higher price tag. Simple economics there. Do I agree that it should be required or bundled? Of course not, I don't care at all about the Kinect or movement gaming.
Seriously guys, you are going to bash the guys that bring us quality gaming entertainment every week? On their own site? Do I agree with everything they say or do? Of course not. Yes, Cheapy can be a bit of an ass sometimes, but so can Wombat and Shipwreck. So can every one of us. That's what makes us people. Seriously guys, chill the hell out. We are talking about video games. This should be an exciting time for all of us: we are entering a new console generation!
On a side note, surprised none of you guys mentioned that we are getting Fable Anniversary this year!!
