    After "Microsoft Changing Xbox One" Policies Poll

    http://www.gamespot.com/news/microso...licies-6410472

    Microsoft has changed its mind. The Xbox One won't require always online, won't be region locked, and won't have DRM.

    How do you feel about the Xbox One now?

    Now for the main question:
    If you had to choose ONE and only ONE console between the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4, what would it be? I know there are people buying both, but what if you had to choose only one?

    Same.
    Ms turned me off with all the drm crap, and they've not won me back over. The more I looked up PS4 stuff the more I liked the focused approach. The One won't be a bad machine by all means, especially now... but it seems to be a bit too concerned with trying to do everything. And I have no interest in kinect so didn't want that something extra.

    As for games, you lose out on some no matter which one you own and I don't care to own both... so that's a moot point for me.

    PS4 for me too. That's my pre-ordered console.

    However, given the u-turn, when the One's price drops I may consider it now, whereas I wouldn't have done before today.

    Xbone is 100 dollars more and weaker. I can't overlook that. I'll get a xbone once it's $299.

    Both are going to be great, Both are getting bought. Seems Xbox One will have the edge at launch with a better line up and dedicated servers for online games.

    The PS4 still has better hardware, doesn't force a product on it's consumer base, has a headset in the box, and is $100 cheaper. It's still going to be my launch console of choice. I'll get the Xbox One after it has a price cut.

    It still bothers me that it took a massive uproar in order for them to change their ways as well. At least they changed the policies though.

    Also, with the xbone needing to be connected online(once;setting it up) will still cause problems for those with no net. I guess they can kiss those sales goodbye still.

    Plan to just go with PS4 next gen. Sony has more of the games I like, and really its $100 cheaper. Not to mention tech sites say its clearly the better off the two by a pretty decent percentage.

    Xbox 360 was my first Xbox, and the first few years were pretty damn good but the last few I owned it there hasnt been much of anything for me. From that alone they lost most of my interest in investing in another MS Console.

    They'll never get a dime from me after their douchebaggery in this ordeal. I'm glad they changed their minds (only after the violent back lashing) because it'll be good for those of you that get it. But for me... no thanks

    How ever did you deal with Sony's douchebaggery with the PS3?

    By removing the DRM and the Used game policy, it guarantee that i'll get a xbox one down the line once the price drops. as it is now the Ps4 is a superior package that fit my needs. The kinect does not fit into my Home theater setup since my Theater is in one room and my equipment rack is another. i'm one of those fans who have a setup that neither the PS camera or kinect fit in my setup. i refuse to place any camera or device with cameras in my Bedroom or my Kids room, so i'm hoping in the future MS allow us to unplug the camera.

    Lose the Kinect and have it at $400 then I'd say they've outdone the PS4, no doubt about it they had more games at E3.

    If MS drops having to pay for online (VERY unlikely) then I'd actually switch.

    There's no defense you can use for this issue and the point I'm making. It needs to be connected once. Those with no internet can't do it. Period. Case close. That's over 20million 360 owners.

    Where did you come up with 20 million Xbox 360 gamers don't have Internet at home?

    Total xbox 360's = 77m
    Total Xbox Live accounts = 48m

    I doubt if those 29m people(who some may think has the internet without having a live account) will connect their xbones in order to get it to play video games(something most expect straight out the box).

    The cost. The attitude about the cost. This generation doesn't start until we say so. The ridiculous nature of what the PS3 was supposed to offer (dual HDMI outputs, 3 Ethernet ports, ect). 1080p gaming standard. Networking PS3's for more power. Shoving in Blu-Ray to win the format war even though it had no advantage for games. Insisting on the cell architecture which was a pain for developers to work on.

    It goes on and on.

    Yeah just googled it... about a third of 360 users play offline.

    Was just saying that to a mate on the phone earlier...If only they'd drop Kinect and bring it at the same pricepoint as PS4!

    The Blu-ray was a selling point for me and I still use that feature.

    Their words about when next gen starts are just that... words... and didn't affect me in any way whatsoever.

    1080p standard really is entirely up to developers. $#@!loads of 360 games are 720p... so this is not a Sony issue. 1080p TVs at the time were also expensive as $#@! and so were Blu-ray players.

    The crap MS pulled alienated a lot of their fans... even the hardcore ones... whereas with PS3 it just made Sony sound like arrogant $#@!s. What MS was doing was taking a fat dump on the way games have been bought/sold for the last 3 decades.
