Default The new Xbox One

Well, Microsoft unveiled their new Xbox One console. Also, the gear you have for Xbox 360 will not work on the new Xbox One, that is what gamers are reporting.

http://www.afterdawn.com/news/article.cfm/2013/05/22/the_xbox_one_is_not_very_consumer_friendly

What Microsoft did not reveal, was how unfriendly the console will be to the average consumer.

So far, this is what we have learned about the Xbox One from multiple sources:

- The console is not backwards compatible, even for downloaded Xbox 360 games. This was not unexpected, but it still sucks for gamers who paid good money to build collections over the last 7 years.

- Installing games will be mandatory, but at least Microsoft says you can play while it installs. Once you place the disc in and install, you will never have to use the disc again.

- Used games, rented games and borrowed games from friends will not be playable unless you pay a fee to install from that disc. This will effectively kill the second-hand market unless you are willing to pay said "fee."

- The rumored always-on DRM was not as bad as expected, but developers can build games that require an always-on Internet connection at their own discretion, meaning the console will slowly but surely move to always-on.

- The Xbox One does not work without the Kinect 2 sensor. Period.

- The console's 500GB hard drive is non-replaceable.

This is what I was able to compile after today, which is an extreme amount of anti-consumer practices. We can only imagine there will be more to come.

Xbox One pre-owned games may require fee payment!

Almost every single game I have was bought used (Too cheap to pay $50 for a game when I can wait awhile and get it for $10). I probably wouldn't get one just for that one issue alone.

I havent had a 360 that lasted longer then 3 years. This killed any chance of me ever giving them any more of my money. All the things they changed one the new one are bs too.

That was rather crappy of them. They not only are going to turn away consumers. What about all the small businesses that rely on selling used games? From GameStop, to pawn shops.

Since seeing this thread, I've done some looking around on the interwebs. I can't find any kind of real number of people who are excited about this. It's kinda like obamacare. At first, everyone was like "yay!! this could be awesome!", then they're like "wait... da phuq d'you just say?"

Still getting it! Why? Because being the average American I have to have the newest **** I don't need to impress the people I don't like.

I would expect them to be pretty pricy like these systems are when they are first released, i wont be suprised 500+ easy. So far after reading all the BS this might entail, im not planning on getting one, and i have been pro-xbox since the first one came out i love the first two!
