I don't usually buy DLC. I usually don't play online multiplayer, either. Sometimes, I just want to play my games without interruption, which is sort of hard when there's a pop-up every time someone logs on. There was a time when games didn't need to be updated. They made it the best they could the first time and any issues were just something that had to be dealt with.

First off ..the guy who announced the leek works (or worked) at microsoft..so I think he knows what he is talking about..Second off you are ******* thick headed.. you can play offline but your achievments will not have a date or time as to when you got them. The constant internet is a true factor because mircrosoft, and other game developers, are tired of hackers and pirates ****... usually the reason why people get an xbox is to play online..

Nobody is complaining that you need an internet connection to get DLC or play multiplayer (it'd be hard to download content without one). The problem is when you need an internet connection for single-player games. I've played single-player (and splitscreen multiplayer) games exclusively for the past ten years, because we've never had a good enough internet connection. I live in a rural area, and the area got DSL for the first time ever last year; even still, the connection is low-bandwidth and it goes down frequently. I'm willing to suffer through that to play multiplayer, but when I can't play any games, for such an incredibly retarded and invasive reason, that makes me pissed.

I wouldn't say they are the brightest light bulb, but neither are they the dullest..when they have secrets they want to keep they usually keep it a secret..

PS4 won't be backwards compatible,

Heres an idea. Instead of buying a ****** console. Then paying to go online. Buy a ******* Computer

For the 800+ you will spend for an console and games, you can get a decent used laptop that can play games at better quality than the console. And get games dirt cheap on steam

and being constricted to a mobile device that has a ****** keyboard ( 99% of the time) and really high power consumption is better? Be honest, what kind of real gamer really goes out enough to justify getting a laptop with 50% less power just because it's mobile over getting something that is easily upgradeable and alot better of a deal. 800 bucks won't get you that good of a laptop, for gaming atleast.

for 800 I got a Qsimo (something like that, in the shop right now, so i'm using my backup laptop) I got the laptop so I could take it to class with me. When you go to college it almost impossible to not keep a laptop with you in every class. And I only need to game went I'm at home and can leave it plugged in, thus it uses full power. But, at school, I only need minimal power, and there are always outlets in the library if necessary.

We're talking about gaming here, not portability. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with having a good and reliable laptop. If you do have to have one for business or college then it's understandable, but for straight up gaming laptops aren't really a smart option. You can really upgrade a laptop so it's usefulness for gaming will be shortened drastically because you can't upgrade it. You can with desktops however and the parts are just cheaper and better. My rig costed me around 700 bucks to build about a year ago and I play every game at high or better settings with a good frame rate, that includes crysis 3 and bf3 etc... If you were to buy the parts now it would be around 650 bucks or so maybe and it's also liquid cooled btw.

Wile you can constantly upgrade a rig so it is up to date. My laptop was top of the line 3 years ago, and can still play new games at highest quality, the only huge drawback you have with them is their tendency to overheat, frequently! (Take my melted ribbon cable as example) But you can sell a good laptop for a a good 80% of what you paid for it, and get the newest model, or a used one from someone who is upgrading theres. As long as you don't keep the same laptop for more than 3 years, you can constantly stay up to date while only spending a little more than it would cost to upgrade a rig. I know, it sounds like a crazy thing to do, Like I've basically take the Mac strategy and used it for windows, but it works great for me, you just have to know where to buy and sell to make the most of your money.

Wheres the illogical thing there?
I own many Xbox games that I wouldn't be able to play on the new Xbox, but no old PS3 games because I don't have a PS3. And It's not just the lack of backward compatibly, it's the online only ****, which would be more than frustrating because my internet sucks.

If there is no online only ****, I'd probably get the new xbox and keep my old one, but if I can play all my old games and theres no online ****, I'll sell the old console and get the new one. It's the online only thing that kills it, not the lack of backward compatibility.

Then again, you also make the point that it's the "constant online" bit that's killing it, though my other question is what makes the possibility of just refusing to buy into the new consoles whatsoever so out of the question. I'm perfectly happy with my 360, as it sounds like you are with yours. You can just ignore these new releases like I fully intend to.

Remember that business only goes as far as the consumer revenue.

Because theres various games on them that I want to play and many future games yet to be announced will likely be on them? I am happy with my 360, but, one day, Borderlands 3 will arrive, likely on a PS4 or Xbox 720.

And theres no ******* principle involved, I just don't want to have to deal with being constantly kicked out of my games because my internet is an abomination. Who the **** cares if I get a PS4? I'd mostly prefer backwards compatibility, I don't completely need it since I can simply keep my 360. Sony can do whatever the **** they please with the backward compatibility, it makes no difference to me, but it makes at least some with the 720, because I own a 360.

It just seems to me that if you're going to make such a big deal over the state of the new console features that maybe you can entertain the possibility of not buying into it at all. If it pisses you off, give the companys the middle fibger and don't get the product. Settling will just tell them it's OK to do that **** as long as they're not "as bas as the competition".

Right, because the company will listen and care about one person not buying the damn console.

For ***** sake, why do you care if I buy it? Why do you give any hint of a ****? One is better than the other and I choose the better option, the one that is less of a pain in the ass for me personally, not the ******* masses. I don't care if the backwards compatibility is a problem for anyone else on the PS4, because it doesn't apply to me, but it applies to me on the Xbox. The PS4 isn't online only as far as we know, the Xbox might be. Until such times as we know it's not online only, I lean toward the PS4. And how the **** am I making a big deal? If I'm spending as much money as I would be, I'd prefer to not be ****** over with online only ****, and the PS4 won't be ******* me over, but the 720 might.

No, but if everyone uses that justification to go out and buy a new thing just because it's new, then you end up just adding to the problem. Personally, I don't really care if you go out and buy one of the new consoles. Hell, if you're rich enough, you can buy both. I'm just trying to point out that there's a simple solution to all of the butthurt you seem to have over what microsoft intends to do with the new xbox. Just don't buy into it. It's what a lot of people did with Nintendo and, while they don't seem to have slowed down much, they received quite a bit of flack for their shenanigans.

Yu remember how popular the Wii-u was when it came out?

Yeah, me neither...

I'm not buying it because it's new, thats ******* retarded, I'm buying it because I wish to do so, Watch Dogs looks badass, Deep Down looks ******* incredible, Fallout 4 and Borderlands 3 will likely be next gen and they are 2 of my favourite series, along with the next Elder Scrolls and Fable game (If that ever exists). It's not that I want the console for being new, it's my love for the series I've loved for years.

I'm more frustrated about the fact that, like I said, as a kid I looked up to Bill Gates and thought Microsoft was badass in general and they are starting to get worse and worse, killing any respect I once had, it's like watching Batman kill someone.

That's how I felt about the Pokemon franchize. I fully understand loyalty. It's why I'm still ging to get AC4 despite people telling me it's going to be terribad. I like the Assassins Creed series. But nintendo kept getting ridiculous with how they were releasing their handheld devices, even to the point where it wasn't worth it anymore. I highly doubt the 720 or PS4 are going to be that bad, and even if they were, solving it is as simple as just not spending the money.

Plus, you know, since neither console is going to allow backwards compatibility, until those first games come out it's not worth spending the money anyway. Nintendo, again, learned that the hard way.

Yeah, I might delay a bit until, say, Deep Down comes out or Watch Dogs (2 that as stated I am looking forward to.) But still, the not spending money solution only goes so far until, also stated, Borderlands 3. Me and my friend have played probably hundreds of hours of both games (We never got a pearlescent weapon in the first one despite killing Crawmerax well over a hundred times. ******.) and would sooner die than pass up Borderlands 3. And I've never been a big fan of Nintendo, if at all.

And that said, I think the new Assassins Creed looks badass. I'm curious to see what happens with Desmond and the new guy, who looks like a combination of Ezio and Connor, the idea of dual wield and more guns (That ************ had 4 guns in the trailer, hardcore.) is appealing and it's pirates and pirates are badass.

The illogical part is you're complaining about how Microsoft is doing this "big evil thing" by making their new console only play games made specifically for the new console, yet your solution for this is to run to the other console which is just going to do the same damn thing.

It begs the question on whether or not it truly is about the principle behind making new consoles backwards compatible.
