    I don't get the whole Xbox hatred, Xbox One was essentially doing something similar to Steam. You are connected to the internet, you can access your library everywhere & download it and it's yours.. Valve did not get this much hate when they ditched buying physical copies of games and moved to download based, why is Xbox One receiving all of that when they went a similar-ish route. In my honest opinion, this is all a case of lesser educated people jumping on a bandwagon (doesn't sound great but stick with me, i'll try and explain), people who have no grasp on the possibility of change, the possibility of planning for the future of gaming by having it digitally based, the idea of not having backwards compatibility, I don't know about you guys but when my Gamecube didn't play Nintendo 64 games, I didn't curse a storm up about that! It's planning for a future, which we may aswell not have because the problem is the people who don't notice this, who don't notice that fair enough the PS3 was hated for hiking up the price when having a Blu-Ray player, but now it's almost essential for the next-gen consoles.. for example. Change needs to happen, you need to accept it. The best example for this is Call Of Duty, they didn't change their game, still very similar every year, same 6 hour story, big twist, multiplayer, then cliffhanger ending.. it's a formula that works fair enough, but reviews ranging from 3/10 to a questionable 9/10 (from a website which currently has COD:Ghosts advertising splattered all over it like a Activision bukkake) but then a game like GTA 3 for example breaks the mould, they see a way to change the game, makes it 3rd person, great reviews well recieved, for seeing change, making change.. Accept change.

    Nope, you're wrong. Valve got a massive amount of backlash back in 2004 when consumers learnt Half Life 2 would have to be unlocked through an online service. But Valve stuck to their guns, and now the PC gaming space is all the better for it. Also - Steam never demanded that you connect after registering the product. Xbox One would have you connect every 24 hours in order to play your games. Of course, in reality this is a very minor problem because everyone has Internet connection, but that doesn't mean it'll be accepted. We would have accepted it, just as we've accepted Steam. It's unfortunate that Microsoft didn't have the balls to move forward. Digital is the future, and the backlash against MS is only delaying the inevitable.

    probably not buying one ever,microsoft have been too arragont to get my money,maybe if they release a solus console without kinect maybe,then again there only exclusives are halo,gears of war and forza and i don't care for any of those plus 720p,really need to get there shit together,360 was succesfull due to ps3 being hard to program for,can't see why any decent developers will choose xbox as there main platform now
