#411 - nebraksa corn (06/13/2013) [-]
Well Xbox raised me, so I won't abandon my father figure that easily. But people, for the sake of knowledge and not stupidity, microsoft is pioneering a new age in video game technology. Just like they did with the previous two systems. The Xbox brought in huge amounts of gamers with games such as halo. Remember playing on 20" TVs with four other people? And then who pioneered the video game age of multiplayer and made it a global phenomena? the 360...

So while all of you bitch and gloat about an internet connection that has to be always on for the purpose of the cloud, which in theory is an infinite amount of virtual space which will serve the purpose of allowing games to go far and beyond anything that we have ever seen, I will be enjoying and playing all i can with the little free time i have.

BUT i am in no way putting down sony. I plan on getting both. They both have games that I want to play and im already going to start saving for them. So you can either be a stupid **** thats riding a bandwagon of faggots that don't know or even bother to look into why things are changing or you can simply enjoy and marvel at the experience we are witnessing in technology/gaming. But seriously guys? Dont get your panties in a bunch over change. I know I don't like it either, but were in the digital age and you just have to accept that change is going to happen very quickly whether it be for profits or a developement in technology.

I agree with you, and you seem like a reasonable and intelligent person. But...

What if I don't need cloud, or ever use it?
User avatar #420 to #415 - nebraksa corn (06/13/2013) [-]
Its not really that you need it, its for the developers. As games become more massive and complicated, more storage space is needed and instead of making people pay extreme amounts for hardware to accommodate to these needs, why not just go with the cheaper alternative that is better for everyone? So in the end, you do end up needing it as newer and bigger things come out
User avatar #433 to #420 - strangesir (06/14/2013) [-]
Hm, perhaps, but it really depends on how big the games are and how the data/space is being used up. I'm still on the fence about the Xbox One though. More good things need to come out of it (The guy who basically said "Get a 360 if you can't stay online all the time" and making the One more of a entertainment system for TV and **** isn't helping.) , or else I'm jumping off that fence into Sony's backyard.
User avatar #441 to #433 - nebraksa corn (06/14/2013) [-]
Wait you don't want to skype while watching netflix???? Jk, im with you that. If i wanted tv entertainment i would order a porn channel. I couldn't care less about it as long as my gaming is smooth.

How did Microsoft pioneer anything for gaming? They got all their idea's from everyone else.... Honestly, they have done nothing but globalize it. Anyway, I love the xBox, but it's ******** what their doing. Their trying to take advantage of the unintelligent 12 year old generation. Trust me man, it's called reading. Try some of it, and you'll figure out, that there is 100% nothing original about their console. Aside from the fact their forcing you to pay for every game like 100 times, and the fact it's mandatory internet and kinect.
User avatar #439 to #418 - nebraksa corn (06/14/2013) [-]
They took a collaboration of ideas and put them together. You can claim that almost everything is unoriginal and stolen ideas. Its the people that actually took these ideas from paper and made them into something. You sir need to do reading of your own. Its different when a company takes ideas and uses it for their own (apple, sony, microsoft, nintendo, etc), everybody does. But unlike sony which operates out of the us's legality and copies ideas, microsoft buys companies that have these ideas and incorporates them into their own and they pay for it handsomely. My uncle was apart of a software development company that was bought out, they increased his wages by 80k and did the same for the rest of them. Their systems for the most part were built legally and honestly.

It appears to be that you've received some very unnecessary hate for voicing your opinion, but I guess this is an open-forum outlet on the internet. We should have foreseen this coming.

Microsoft spends a lot of money to make people happy, and from media outlets all over the web we can see that they aren't achieving their goal of customer satisfaction. Do I believe they'll bend completely to satisfy the masses? No, but I do believe they won't completely disappoint.

Regardless of the final outcome of the xboxone come release day, I'll still be switching to the PS4. Not because of Microsoft's resent bad press, but because the playstation exclusives look like they'll be worth every penny.

#452 to #411 - raikun (06/14/2013) [-]
That first sentence shows how closed minded you are. i read the rest and facedesked. You do know the Cloud isnt infinite storage? Its just a larger storage space tucked away and it costs money to run and materials too. The need to connect online every 24 hours to even play OFFLINE is beyond stupid. "We do this to fight piracy" translates into "We do this to see how much we can **** with our customers." Also the Xbox didnt pioneer anything, sure there was Halo, but thats a game that could have easily been on ANY other system. The 360 wasnt the only thing to use online multiplayer, the ps2 had some traces of it and then the ps3 took it further as well as the 360. Think about what you are getting when you buy a console. Is it really worth the extra $100 for features your probably will never use and hate? I'm sticking to the ps4 because microsoft showed its true colors and said "if you dont have constant access to the internet, just stay with the 360" aka " **** you guys who dont have the greatest connection to the internet." I may have good internet, but hearing that from a company trying to sell a product and service to me, i find that unappealing and quite rude.
User avatar #470 to #452 - nebraksa corn (06/14/2013) [-]
Do you know what being close-minded is? Because youre the spitting hypocritical image of it. You obviously have no clue what youre ******* talking about. Cloud software is like electricity. It doesn't stop and sit somewhere it constantly is moving like a circuit. Yeah no ******* duh it takes storage, but if you want to increase its capacity it takes barely nothing to do so and by just adding a little bit of hardware to support it, it increases the storage dramatically. Next time you decide to comment on anything with your pussy ass stupidity make sure its on a suicide-help message board saying youre going to do it. You narrow minded **** saw what xbox released and didnt even bother to consider why they would do something so different. Am i being close minded for making a joke at the beginning and then at the end saying im gettting both consoles? Seriously $500? I was expecting way more for both and was prepared to pay for it even. Uhhhh ps3 when it came out.... what was the price? You sir, are a bitch of the highest extremes and your stupidity does nothing but sadden me. Getting your info from a pussy bandwagon blog wont help you with anything other than putting your tampon in your asshole.
#473 to #470 - raikun (06/14/2013) [-]
Oh i'm sorry, i didnt know you came from the loony bin, I will leave your twisted and broken mind to itself. You know i didnt take engineering classes the involved RESEARCH, especially into cloud storage. Although i guess you just get spoon fed what microsoft tells you? Also as for the suicide comment of yours, thats really stupid and you need to assess how you think and make decisions. Telling somebody to kill basically kill themselves because they have a different opinion? Quite sad and literally the **** of the world we DON'T need.
User avatar #481 to #473 - nebraksa corn (06/14/2013) [-]
Wow that's cute that you totally tried to change the subject from the fact that I'm right. If you took engineering classes then you know how the clouds works and you know it saves a lot of resources and money by adding a few megadrives rather than extra hardware to the millions of console that will be sold. And as for my comment, its an insult and the internet. If you can't take one, you probably shouldn't be on this site.
#487 to #481 - raikun (06/14/2013) [-]
Oh i love how you think technology is simple as "lets just set up a device and let it go" things like that need to be taken care of, monitored. Also i can take an insult on the internet because i know a little **** head like you cant do anything. Simple fact is that "Next time you decide to comment on anything with your pussy ass stupidity make sure its on a suicide-help message board saying youre going to do it." means you think i'm bad enough to just off myself. I'm just showing you that you are even worse so. Also on a point in your earlier post, the ps3 cost $600 because it included the hardware of a ps2 for backwards compatibility.
User avatar #506 to #487 - nebraksa corn (06/14/2013) [-]
Alright I will apologize on the suicide comment, but obviously if you took something over the internet seriously like that you would be bad off and do you think I would know that over someones messages? And I know there's maintenance and extra costs, but its still tremendously cheaper and a better alternative all around from financially to economically
#509 to #506 - raikun (06/14/2013) [-]
honestly either way you will see that by not utilizing the disk that games come on that its a waste of material and money. The Xbox One doesnt really utilize the disk, it just downloads its data to the harddrive and then the disk is basically useless, not even needed for verification. So either way microsoft is wasting materials and money. Plus they can easily justify increasing the price of Gold for xbox live with the cloud storage becoming more prominent.
User avatar #522 to #509 - nebraksa corn (06/14/2013) [-]
They weren't even going to have disks, but investors wined about it. And do you know what makes up wiring in hardware? The most expensive metals and those alone raise the costs by a lot. And maintenance on mega drives takes a few specialist which there are a lot of and also a well clean air condition which isn't expensive. Idk where your getting the thought that these are so hard to upkeep and produce a lot of toxins. Do you know how the disks are made? Its an oil based product, tell me that that's better than a few storage units that take up barely any space
#529 to #522 - raikun (06/14/2013) [-]
a few? you know these things a large right? and i never mentioned toxins. i'm just saying that its not as simple as it sounds. Yes it is an easy solution, but also think how many people would be using this cloud service since its mandatory?
User avatar #540 to #529 - nebraksa corn (06/14/2013) [-]
Actually not really. Have you actually been to one of these facilities? Plus how big were computers when they first were invented and where are they now? Clouds past it huge development phase, now the hardware size is dramatically smaller

" And then who pioneered the video game age of multiplayer and made it a global phenomena? the 360..."

What do you mean by that ? give an example please.
User avatar #424 to #417 - nebraksa corn (06/13/2013) [-]
I mean it by who took multiplayer gaming from just a few thousand people, to millions across the globe? They had solid servers which they supported to help with this among many other things. Halo 3 and started the fire and then call of duty 4 helped it quite a bit, but mw2 brought it to the millions. Now nothing against sony, but they had developers maintain and create their own servers which weren't reliable and not very secure as we have seen...
User avatar #436 to #424 - tomtomvdp (06/14/2013) [-]
"I mean it by who took multiplayer gaming from just a few thousand people, to millions across the globe?"

Uhmm... Valve ?

I mean , i don't know where you come from , but back in 99 and the early 2000 you couldn't find and empty Half life deathmatch server , or it's mods , team fortress , counter strike , day of defeat . Ricochet .

At least that's what i remember as my first massive , against people from all over the world experience .


As i said , this statement only portrays my personal experience with online multiplayer games. I don't really think that the Xbox / xbox 360 were groundbreaking , maybe for consoles , but still i remember a lot of people playing on ps2 multiplayer games, not as many as in xbox 360 , but still . I don't agree with the "they took multiplayer gaming from a few thousand, to millions" factor

And when it comes to "solid servers" , well again, in pc we had dedicated servers for a long time now , and they work perfectly.

User avatar #458 to #436 - nebraksa corn (06/14/2013) [-]
Yeah youre right for a lot of that, I was speaking more on consoles. But with the rise of consoles pc gaming became better as well. And the numbers were that dramatic, because online gaming became an all-inclusive club with xbox. I mean even parents and grandparents got into console gaming, unlike computers where a lot of the older generations found it overwhelming with so much going on, it took them longer to incorporate into them.
User avatar #565 to #458 - tomtomvdp (06/14/2013) [-]
Well if you put it that way then yes, xbox's is a very accessible and relatively easy to use console so.

Making massive multiplayer - NO

Making massive multiplayer more accessible - YES

Fair enough then , have a nice day.

#194 - methirtyseven (06/13/2013) [-]
Okay, people who are arguing about this. Surely you see where he's coming from. The Xbox One has been designed from the ground up to be a system that is connected to the internet. All of it's features revolve around this. He was asked in an interview about peoples options if they don't have stable connections. Obviously they can't get the Xbox One and that is exactly what he said. The product they produce which doesn't require connecting to the internet is the Xbox 360. He isn't saying " **** you" to anyone. He's saying that the Xbox One is not the console for them. He's hardly going to tell people to buy the competitors product. How do you expect that to work. And everyone watching this clearly has the internet, so stop pretending like this is a personal attack at you.
#234 to #194 - redrock (06/13/2013) [-]
I'm just going to put these in bullets, it's easier that way.
1) At that time they did indeed have a connection but you yourself included the qualifier "stable" in your statement. A stable internet connection is very different from having one in name but is in fact spotty.
2) The demands of a console like the Xbox One would be significantly larger than the demands of, say, a laptop, pushing some worse connections to the limit.
3) People are really just annoyed that Microsoft is trying to tell you what you want, and their response to backlash has been "Shut up, you don't know what you want". The proper response to criticism shouldn't be a hostile "well don't buy it then, we don't want you"
4) I sympathize with the guy, he has to field questions concerning a product people are really bothered by. I think this response was just the only option available to him that wasn't admitting that Microsoft ****** up this time around. It is kind of a " **** you" though, there is no getting around that.
5) People view this as an attack on consumers because of previous statements made by employees of Microsoft when the always-online rumors first started a few months back. They too were very hostile towards criticism of the move so it seems like this is becoming indicative of how the company as a whole thinks.
#247 to #234 - methirtyseven (06/13/2013) [-]
Thanks for the points, I would like to respond to a couple.
2) Yes, the demands would be high to use the console online to the fullest extent, but that isn't the case. It only requires a check every 24 hours, which will be a small package of data, to be able to play single player games.
3) At no point have they told any to shut up and that they don't know what they want. What they are saying is what they are offering. The two are very different things.
4) The fact of the matter is, this quote and the video itself have been taken out of context of the rest of the interview. He is saying that the 360 their only platform capable of truly offline play. Which, for some people, is an unfortunate fact
#258 to #247 - redrock (06/13/2013) [-]
You make it seem like their hands are tied with the online requirement. They purposely did it and had to exert effort to do it. Please reread your first response because that is exactly what is wrong with the way Microsoft is thinking. They have no business requiring internet connections for offline play. The game and console have already been sold, there should be no other requirement beyond electricity and a tv, they are just forcing you to allow them to be involved.

Finally, at no point have they simply said "this is what we're offering". If that was the case, they wouldn't be so hostile towards criticism, they would just say those exact words and stop talking. Instead they criticize consumers from having opinions and saying that they won't buy the Xbox One.

<Pic is prime example of how their employees, like Orth, have reacted
#269 to #258 - methirtyseven (06/13/2013) [-]
The point is they are moving the tech forward to allow for digital distribution. They haven't gone out of their way to make people jump through a bunch of hoops to play offline. What they've done is to create a digital distribution platform that still allows for the inclusion of people without fast/stable internet connections. And with regards to them saying what they are offering, that is what their press release was. That is what their marketing is. They are marketing their product, ie showing what they are offering. And they aren't being hostile, they are being defensive towards the criticism. People are bringing up points and they are explaining their side to it. Adam Orth is just a man. A man that was antagonised on his personal twitter, because he had an opinion. He chose to lash out, and was fired because of it. Microsoft clearly didn't like his approach to their business, so they ended it. They can't be held further responsible for his actions.
#280 to #269 - redrock (06/13/2013) [-]
I'm not saying that Orth is part and parcel the entire problem. He was fired for his opinion, he was fired because it created a **** load of negative press. Everything he said has proven to be pretty much in line with how they're acting.

Their digital distribution platform should not affect physical media or offline play at all, so yes they did in fact exert effort to include that in the way the console operates.

They are receiving criticism because many people do not want what they are offering, their hostility should not exist as producers. If you don't want to hear criticism, don't create. If your product is so great, you shouldn't become hostile at the slightest provocation. Being defensive is usually seen as hostile posturing by the way.
#292 to #280 - methirtyseven (06/13/2013) [-]
But they aren't being hostile. That's all made up. They are responding to peoples criticism in clear, concise ways. Please give me an example of this hostility that you perceive. Orth wasn't fired for his opinion. He was fired for being rude to Microsoft's customer base in a very public medium.
And with the physical media argument again, they are basing the entire system around digital distribution, which isn't an unwarranted idea. The fact that they are still using physical drives is because they know that some people aren't ready to download all of their games from the internet, so they are giving them the option to join in their new generation console, without the extra requirements that it would generally entail.
#305 to #292 - redrock (06/13/2013) [-]
I would argue that most people aren't ready to move to a purely digital system. That's exactly where all this backlash is coming from. And please don't make them sound generous by saying that Microsoft is giving people the option to join them in the next generation. No company is doing away with physical media entirely and the reason Sony and Nintendo aren't being criticized as harshly is because they understand that the market doesn't want to do away with physical media yet. So that isn't the next generation, it's Microsoft's next step and people don't agree with it.

I think you may have misunderstood what I said/implied about digital distribution and the online requirement. Once the sale of a game is done (physical or digital) Microsoft has no business forcing other requirements on you. If a game is bought online and saved to your hard drive, fine. Why the **** should I have to continuously connect to the internet to play what I purchased? It is now mine, I'm not licensing it or leasing it or borrowing it, I bought it and I am the sole possessor.

They currently require you to accept updates, ect. for games in order to go on xbox live, that's totally fine. Why? Because that's a service they offer and they can set terms for that. That does not extend to games which are played without that service.
#314 to #305 - methirtyseven (06/13/2013) [-]
I wasn't making out that they were being "generous" by offering it to a larger audience. All they are doing is offering it to a larger audience. And the point is that you don't own it. You are being licensed it. They are making the connection to keep track of their licenses and to prevent pirated copies.
#325 to #314 - redrock (06/13/2013) [-]
And that is exactly the issue here, that mentality. If I buy a physical disc, I own it. The way Microsoft sees it, if I buy a digital copy, they own it. That, among other things, is why people are not eager to endorse digital media.

If I wanted to license something I'd subscribe to gamefly for access to a large selection of games, not individually license games for a higher price
#335 to #325 - methirtyseven (06/13/2013) [-]
Even physical game discs are considered licensed copies of the games. It is written in almost every EULA. The point is that Microsoft are making a console that involves the licenses being assigned to an account that can be used to keep control of those licenses.

Yes and whilst I have internet connection.. it's ****** and unreliable. I'm sure other people have this problem, and it seems silly to alienate an entire group of people.
#232 to #227 - methirtyseven (06/13/2013) [-]
But all that is required is to make a connection to the internet once a day. Are you telling me that your connection is so ****** and unreliable that you go days at a time without having internet connection?
User avatar #245 to #232 - celaeneo (06/13/2013) [-]
Yeah, my whole street has gone two days without connection before.
#253 to #245 - methirtyseven (06/13/2013) [-]
I agree that that's not a good thing, but even the way you've said it has shown that it is your worst case scenario. Even in that case, it would have been just the one day without playing games. And I'm assuming that the problem that caused it would have been fixed, so it isn't an immediate danger of happening again soon

Thanks. Between FunnyJunk and Reddit, I get the feeling that nobody wants to have a neutral, well-thought-out opinion on this matter.

They did do some things I don't agree with to be fair, but the good outweighs the bad.

My purchasing the console is not going to affect the people who want an offline device. People need to quit acting like the damn thing is a terrorist threat or some stupid **** like that.

The moment people start making out that it is going to be spying on you 24/7 and uploading to Microsoft and the NSA, you might as well be talking to a fundamentalist Christian about evolution

What if they release all the games for xbox one, on the 360. Even over the corse of the next 5-6 years. I would never buy the xbox one then.
User avatar #98 to #95 - kittygerman (06/13/2013) [-]
Well they kinda screwed up more since they made a new Xbox 360 that's exactly like the Xbox One but the only difference is that it can do everything the 360 can
User avatar #100 to #98 - habasparkz (06/13/2013) [-]
I cannot believe they came out with another model of the xbox 360. Just ******* stupid.

If you don't have access to the internet you need to be reconsidering your priorities before buying a console in the first place. Go get some internet then decide what console you want.
User avatar #235 to #228 - bokkos (06/13/2013) [-]
Because, you know, there isn't anywhere that simply doesn't have internet access.

I would drop xbox in a second if it weren't for Halo (I find the lore/story fascinating) and Forza 5.

It probably won't be as bad as it's being made out to be. As it is I'm ready to just read the Halo books and get a PS4, but I'm gonna sit it out and see what people have to say about them after launch (there's almost always launch problems with these things anyway).
User avatar #298 to #293 - xsnowshark (06/13/2013) [-]
The thing that makes me mad is how he more or less put down a large amount of people that may not have access to a stable connection or do not completely agree with him.

On a separate note, have you read any of the Halo books? I was thinking about picking some up instead of just trolling Halo's Wikia.
User avatar #330 to #298 - cthumoo (06/13/2013) [-]
I've read a tiny bit of the first first book (well chronologically first, contact harvest, it's about Johnson) and I liked it, not much to go off but I've heard good things about all of them.
User avatar #312 to #298 - exhaustedheadcase (06/13/2013) [-]
i have their an interesting read if nothing else

They are written from a Forerunner's perspective, aren't they?

To each their own. The Xbox one is actually going to work out better for the ps4 for me. I've wanted an all in one home entertainment system for a while I figured Apple would be the first ones to do it but now that microsoft has maybe they will. The PS4 looks good and if i had the money i'd get one but it still wouldn't be my main console.

I believe Microsoft is testing our loyalty with the new X-box. They say it will have all these bad features us fans are not proud of, but coming to launch date everything they said was just a mere myth, making it the best system to date.

ready for red thumbs. Pic unrelated.
User avatar #237 to #210 - zxmongoose (06/13/2013) [-]
But that's stupid, if that was the case it'd be pretty bad loyalty to their customers and fans to test them that way

i know im going to get bashed for this but aren't the most the people complaining the ones who actually have internet access to complain on?

I have internet connection but I can't get online for my xbox 360, can't access it from my room.
