With the new consoles coming out, Xbox One and the Playstation 4 - do you see yourself buying either? Especially with the information in the news about the Xbox One being "always online" and not supporting the used game market.

Do you see Steam gaining transaction, with the attractive pricing and easy of use?

I don't plan to get any new console. That said... the XBox One is the first console that actually scares me a bit. Mostly because I really don't like the idea of having cameras/microphones I don't control being inside the house and pretty much always on (even when the console itself is turned off).

Why does the xbox1 cost so much? their quad core is only worth $150

plus it doesn't play 360 games.. amazing technology.

well their consumer targets are 8 - 14 year olds I don't think those people really understand what they are buying, and plus their parents buy it haha.

Does xbox1 seriously have a camera that remains on when the console is off?? o.O


I've never been an xbox fan. Playstation has always been backwards compatible. I usually play PC games but if I were to buy one it would be PS4.

Yep... it does. There's a lot of news articles on it that you can investigate yourself if you're curious, but this one seems to do a pretty good summary job.

Yes. The Kinect camera is apparently used to watch you 24/7, and run facial recognition on every face in its view. There are a lot of claims about it cutting you off if a friend who doesn't own the game is in its view but I don't know if that's true or just the media reposting every rumour it hears.

I hate Steam DRM. Otherwise, Steam is great.
Makes it hard for me to play games without pirating them.

Saw this a while back. It does list everything I know/heard about the xbox1 so it should be fairly accurate.

I'll just leave this here: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/7417-Next-Gen-Buyers-Guide

This image and video summarizes quite nicely. It's a shame the way console development has gone. Limiting backwards compatibility and demanding people to be online at all times is just foolish. And the "big brother" feeling from the kinect always being on is REALLY creepy.

As long as they get some decent exclusive titles, I think Sony is going to win over a lot of the Microsoft audience this generation.

I know I'm already sold on the PS4 compared to the Xbox One.

the new xbox won't play games without being connected to the internet at least once eery 24 hours? wow that is outrageous, coming from someone who doesn't play online console games, but i mean most people do so i guess it's less of a problem that it seems.

I have no plans for buying a new console, but if I did, I'd go for the PS4.

It just keeps getting better, Xbox One will not allow indie developers to publish games on the platform without a publisher:
