    Who is reconsidering the Xbox One?

    With the DRM removal I think we can all agree that MS is back in the game.
    I think I'll only get one console att launch and have pre-ordered the PS4 already but now I'm having second thoughts.

    I preordered and am now reconsidering.

    The family sharing was a huge step forward IMO. My family, friends, and I would have really benefited from it and now it appears that it is gone.

    This would actually have saved my friends a lot of money (since I buy way more games than any of them.)

    I also think that MS had established a standard for sharing/gifting used digital content and now that standard is gone. My biggest complaint about Steam is that I canít share my games nor can I give them to my friends when I am done. That standard is now gone. Eventually it will all be digital and the Steam lockdown model is the only standard that exists. Without the tradeoff to convince me of the value of a checkin there is little motivation for them to ever support gifting/sharing.

    I am sure I will be a HUGE minority here, but there you have it.

    Not reconsidering. Microsoft have played their hand in where they want to go, even if its now no longer that way the next gen. Voting with my feet.

    I thought a poll option for this wasn't needed since we already know the result for such an option. We are a PS forum after all.

    I had all but turned my back on the One for the next generation. The u-turn will now at least mean I'll consider it probably after the first or second price drop. However, for day one I have already chosen to go with the PS4 and I'm sticking very much with that.

    Sony didn't disappoint me with PS3's lineup, so safe to say I will continue to support them with PS4.

    Plus, MS is still limited to 21 countries which does not include mine.

    Apart from that, higher pricing too.

    Not much hate on the MS as I applaud them to actually listen to demands.

    I will get it at some point but I'm not sure about launch. The desire went away with the policy change.

    xbox-brought standard hardrive and online play

    xbox 360-brought even better online while bringing indie games and internet services to the box.

    xbox one-The console equivalent of an iphone 4s. Does the same $#@! as the 360 except stronger. In other words just like the PS4.

    That's that $#@! I don't like.

    Crying over a luxury item. What the $#@!.

    I might get it at some point later down the road..but this experience has left a huge bad taste in my mouth with MS. After the $#@! they just tried to pull on their loyal fans, they can officially go $#@! themselves for a good while. I'll get it when the price is at where it needs to be: $399. I can't believe how many people are just willing to go "Oh, the DRM is gone now. YAY!" I'm sticking with my PS4 pre-order out of principle(and better hardware/lower price) at this point.


    I don't really need a water cooler/remote control as of right now.

    I'm definitely getting it. Part of me thinks it was a good move to trash the DRM and the other part thinks they should have stuck to their guns.

    I think a lot of people over-reacted to the DRM without fully understanding Microsoft's intentions with it and MS were left with no choice but to go back on it.

    lol NO CHANCE! If there's ever a time when you are most unlikely to cancel a pre-order it's just before the release when the hype is at fever pitch and everyone is posting about where they are going at midnight to get theirs.

    So, if you haven't cancelled by now then you're gonna end up with it on day one (and subconsciously you know it's true)

    I'm definitely getting one but probably not until a price drop. Saving for PS4 is priority right now.

    The whole digital library I liked the idea of, never needing the disc again and ability to download any of the games I own even if i bought the disc version I thought was cool but now with the removal of the online 24 hour check I assume this is removed.

    I'm still waiting for games before I'll pick one up. Titanfall and Ryse just don't do anything for me.

    Maybe in 2-3 years I can get one used at Gamestop and save some money.

    Dreamcast brought online play

    Sony introduced hard drives and online play

    xbox brought harddrive standard

    xbox 360 brought pay to play online

    ps3 continued f2p online with all the services xbox live had except xgame chat

    xbox one brought mandatory kenetic and continues pay wall for online services

    Ps4 brought console streaming and sharing out of the box p2p online and no paywall for online services

    PC has just been sitting on a throne being the epitome of gaming glory oh battlefield 4 i cant wait
    "I think all those developers who are saying, "We donít want to do a PS3 game," or "Itís really difficult to do it," should shut up and make their games. If you have time to complain about it, then you should be spending your time working on getting the most from the hardware."

    I'll get it sometime next year, hopefully at the earliest. I believe that I would have bought one two-three years down the line if they had continued their online policies, but only to play the number of exclusives available on the platform.
