    Looks like the new x-box has the kinect stuff built in? And $100 more than Playstation? That's 2 deal-breakers right at the start. I have to draw the line at a camera in my living room - not gonna happen.

    Do you have cameras on your cell phone? Your laptop? If you wanna have no chance of such hacking that's fine just know the XBox is one of many ways to do it.

    This is what they should have done from the start :deal

    If you buy the physical games you can trade them in and do what you want with them.

    If you buy the digital downloads it'll have the DRM but you'll get the features like letting your whole family play it on different XBoxes.

    Now how will Microsoft get over all of this bad PR is the question because nerds will mostly keep up, but the general public will still associate the XBox with no used games.

    Shit my phone has TWO cameras!

    :lol3


    I dont think people disagree with the cameras on their devices, they disagree with a fixed camera in their home. I can always put the other stuff in a drawer

    Same here. Mine technically has 3 considering 3d capabilities, but it's either in my pocket or in a little nook at home where it can look at the top of a slice of maple all it wants. A networked full-time camera staring at my living room is what I don't want. And I sure as hell wouldn't pay extra for it.

    As an avid gamer- I hoped for more. This is perhaps my cue to get a game Pc and leave the console realm. Nothing about this new xbox has me excited.

    I kind of already did this. I still play the occasional RPG or car racing game, but I've gotten much more enjoyment out of Starcraft 2 and civilization 5 then I have out of a console game in a long time.

    Most of the big console games are on PC though, and with the 2 next gen systems being basically PC's it'll happen even more. Grab a wired X box controller and you're good to go, the bigger games will have native support for it.

    FPS's online will suck somewhat VS the WASD/mouse twitch monkeys but jack up the sensitivity and you'll do alright. I only place a little further back per round on COD BOII on my PC VS MW3 on the 360.
