    I sold both my 360 and ps3 a while back. When I heard about the upcoming consoles, I contemplated purchasing them. After watching the Xbox reveal, I was pretty sure I was going to get XB1 first. I would eventually get both if the exclusive titles pushed the envelope but, I really like how MS is trying to integrate their system into a multimedia console instead of just for gaming. The James Bondish voice command capability for controlling components is pretty cool. Unfortunately, after reading the IGN article on confirmed details on the XB1, I will NOT be purchasing it at all.

    Here are my gripes/deal breakers.

    1. Mandatory login every 24hrs - I don't play my game nor watch tv everyday so that is a no go. It's not so much the necessary internet connection as i'm guessing it'll be possible to use your phone or something else as a hotspot if your service was to go out. My concern extends to, what if I go on vacation ? Do I have to get someone to babysit my xbox ? Perhaps they'll expound on this at E3 and it won't be this dramatic but, for now, it's a deal breaker.

    2. No lending of games - I'm sorry but, I have friends and we swap games. I don't mind you have to install the game and this is a theft measure. However, this is not a necessary choice so, restricting me from borrowing games sucks balls. - Deal breaker.

    3. Does not work without Kinect - Yea, I have enough of a time worrying about my daugther thrasing my console alone. To have to ensure the saftey of the Kinect or my console doesn't work seems kinda silly. - Gripe.

    4. Kinect mic is ALWAYS ON - Yes, this allows part of the James Bondish action but, I'm not ok with this. Much too big brotherish and can be avoided by mandating you simply push the XBOX button like you do on the 360 to turn it on. Everything else could be voice command without the consumer concern. This is also why i'm thinking about cancelling my cable service ( which would render one more of the voice activated functions useless ) in the future if the companies install their mics to tailor commercials for subscribers. - Major deal breaker.

    5. No backwards compatibility - This is more of a minor gripe as i'm not super affected by this ( as I stated, I sold my systems ) but, it still sucks. I understand it's a different operating system and it's unable to do it but, lol I don't care. The only real difference I can see from this upgrade is better graphics and perhaps a more expansive world to play in. The problem is, it won't be THAT much greater than the 360. We're not talking about a 480i to 720p jump like the last gen breakthrough. We're talking 720p to 1080p type of difference. An upgrade yes, but not mind blowing. Which basically means those with an expansive 360 library of games ( especially the digital games ) will catch the rape. I know the ultimate solution is to just use your existing consoles but, if the intention is to replace existing hardware, this isn't the way to go. I know this goes for Sony as well but, at least in their reveal they hinted at them POSSIBLY doing an integration of all past platform gaming to run on the PS4 later on in it's life cycle.

    Yea, call them petty gripes/deal breakers if you want but, this surely chopped my want for the new XB1 ( as much as I still love the new features and will probably want to play at least 10 of the 15 exclusive titles they have coming out ). I'm sure one of my friends will get it and i'll be able to play it there lol.
    Your issues are the same ones I have issue with, except the backwards compatibility. We all have xbox 360's laying around for that reason.

    Let's not forget you don't own any game you purchase, you own the privilege of playing it on your xbox only. My problem with the Xbox One is the fact it is anti-consumer. Imagine selling your BMW and the new car dealer wants a cut of your sale.

    Did you know that you can only trade in or sell to Microsoft-authorized shops, which give a cut to Microsoft for every used game to unlock the game's code for resale?

    It's a big hot mess and I'm not wanting any part of it.

    PS4 isn't much better. Although Sony isn't restricting used game sales, there is nothing stopping developers from implementing their own checks and procedures.

    All in all, probably going to get a mid-high end card like the GTX680 and stick to PC gaming myself. All of this nonsense is way too big brother-ish.

    Wow, I remember Quakeworld over my 28.8 dialup!! Counterstrike was played with friends at the local Asian Internet cafes over a LAN. I also have fond memories of playing 1v1 matches for money on Q3 Arena. Let's not forget Warcraft 2 on Kali!

    Yea, that's seriously one of my major complaints. Why even act like it's worth the process of buying the game disc ? The game is tied to the xbox live account so as stated, even if they leave the game at your house, you still can't play it without their login. Which begs the question ... How far they'll go to ensure the owner is really there signing in ? Kinect checking the visuals in the room ? Cloud stored voice recognition ?

    And NO I didn't know that ! Where has that been confirmed ? Polygon ? I haven't read their article but, I thought they were being hush hush on that issue until E3. If so, it's unbelievable the lengths they'll go to suck every bit of profit available. You would think Frank White ran MS.

    Yea, i've actually been looking into what it takes to have a good gaming rig. I've never played computer exclusive games or cross platform games for pc/mac. I've severely ignorant to what hardware/software is necessary, what's a waste, and why. The most i've done is download some emulators ( nes, snes, genesis, ps1 ) and play here and there whenever i'm bored ( I use my dusty ps2 controller lol ). All I know is comps have WAY better graphics. Not sure of the real drawbacks, if any. Time to start researching more.

    Just cost, that's it. You don't have to wait 8 years for hardware updates...

    Honestly this might be the first time I have become uninterested in the next generation of gaming. I may just end up becoming a PC gamer from this point on, but I still need to complete my huge backlog of games for my Xbox, PS2, 360 etc lol.

    I don't care one bit about the whole sports, TV, and sports and TV stuff with the Xbox One. Just give me a good gaming console with mind-blowing graphics and that's it!!

    I have to admit the big brother stuff makes me feel a bit uncomfortable. So if I say Bin Laden three times in front of the Xbox, a SWAT team will "ring "on my door??

    Guess I better buy another 360 before my current one gets a 'red ring o death' again. I don't plan on getting a Xbox One, for the same reasons other have posted. Plus I have my gaming laptop and steam which gets me just about any game that comes out for the 360 that I would be interested in. It's a shame Sony hasn't allowed their games to be on steam or rather the publishers haven't put them on steam, would love to play Resistance on my PC....

    Playstation 4 will allow used games and does not require an always on internet connection. Looks like Sony will get my money this round.

    Yeah this is going to be crazy. Last time Sony was more expensive, this time Microsoft is priced higher. IDK who to choose yet. Ill wait a couple months to get final info on both systems. GPU specs etc.

    We have the final specs basically the PS4 outpowers it and is $100 cheaper. It's a no brainer IMO.

    Microsoft $#@!ed up.
