In Topic: $50 off any Xbox One console or bundle: 11/2/14 - 1/3/15

Funny I was undecided whether I wanted the white Xbox, then when I finally made up my mind earlier this week, it sold out at Best Buy.  I did find a Gamestop 30 miles away that has one copy left, but thankfully I came to my senses and decided it wasn't worth the money.  After gas and taxes, I would be out near $400 for the thing.  I still have a massive backlog of 360 games so no need to dig myself deeper, but dang it, I love that white and hate that this could be my only opportunity to get one.  Still can't pull the trigger.

Can someone please tell me what is this $50 coupon that everyone keeps referring to?  Really wished I had pulled the trigger yesterday and bought the white Xbox off the website yesterday.  I could have got 10% off with Discover, but I also need Live as my sub is about to expire.

This is the worst thread I have ever seen on CAG. Keep your immature fanboy shit on GameSpot. We usually have one of the best communities on the internet because people wanted to have fun and play video games. It is childish to feel such consumerism for one console over the other.

Ok, but Xbox still sucks and we get free recent games with Playstation Pus. Argument closed. :)

Man you know PSfanyboys were always the worst of the lot, but this new gen they are really taking the cake.  Yes, the PS4 has SLIGHTLY better graphics and is SLIGHTLY easier to develop for (mostly because of the little extra power) but c'mon.  The dualshock is still the worst of the two controller for anybody with above average sized hands (and I'd argue even for those with normal sized hands), I mean I don't even see that as opinion I have spent extensive time with both and sorry the dualshock just doesn't cut it for anything but platformers.  The new one fixes a few issues but the design as a whole is still flawed.

 

Then the games, yeah neither console has good games so stop acting like they do.  If I had to pick the XB1 has the better set right now with Forza and Titanfall and the PS4 really only has inFamous to be proud of (and even that...it's not really a system seller for me after reading reviews, I loved inFamous 1 but thought 2 felt too much like a chore to play).  

 

I'm sure in the end both will be great systems once more comes out but you just look stupid and ignorant acting like the PS4 is just vastly and undeniably superior at this point.  Hey maybe one day it will be, but you're sooooo grasping at straws to even act like it remotely is now.

PS4 has The Order coming later this year which looks amazing.  I don't think Xbox even has one exclusive slated for the rest of the year.  All they got is Halo which is such a tired franchise. 

 

Last generation, I owned both consoles.  My 360 died farily quickly, and even with the new models, it heats up fast, and the drive stratches up my disc.  No way would I pay more $$$ for a console that offers less.

Price is $500 now.  Looks like a dead deal to me.  I'm still not tempted.  I have a ton of games in my backlog from last generation.  The ability to wave my hand and switch to Netflix really fast isn't that big of deal to me.  I'm not so lazy that  I can't push a button on a remote.
