    Ur gay.

    I just turned the TV to Spike a few minutes ago... this thing is raping PS4 IMO.

    I'm more about a total entertainment console over a pure gaming console anyways.

    Couldn't disagree more with that last statement. I have a nice TV and a phone that work just fine for movies shows and Internet. Just focus on games.

    That's just me anyway. And yes, I have a ps3, but I regret it and wish I went 360 instead.

    It's obviously going to be just as capable as a gaming console as PS4. I wouldn't be worried about it.

    Like I've said, I'm not as into gaming anymore. I like video games, but I'd want a complete entertainment system.

    I like the NFL partnership and how they're going to have a lot of exclusive content.

    Not that I have high hopes for it, but it'll be interesting to see Steven Spielberg direct a Halo TV series.

    I already use my Xbox more than cable at this point.

    HBO Go, Netflix, movie services

    Now you add NFL and further TV integration.

    Skype, live TV, I hope this will further destroy cable.

    All this plus we get games... The same damn games that will be on ps4 for the most part.

    Xbox One is in the lead and I didn't think it would be that great.


    **** kinect... Still

    You're complaining about the gaming... uhh:

    There's 8GB RAM, an 8-core CPU, 500GB hard drive, and a native 64-bit architecture. Not to mention all the servers they're adding for online functionality... hopefully eliminating even more lag.

    Plus a Blu-ray drive, both HDMI in and out, and a USB 3.0 port. The Kinect also has a 1080p camera and USB 3.0 for better data streaming to the console faster. I use the Kinect, but not really for games... mostly for voice control.

    Add in the enhanced tech specs, plus making it an entertainment center.... i'm in.

    Did they say anything about online only or no used games?

    Those are deal breakers to me. Also, mandatory kinect or can we disable it?

    Yep I'll need to know about always online. If it is always online (so that I'll constantly get disconnects even for simple games just cause of minor internet bleeps) then f xbox.

    If they reversed course then it will still be in consideration.
