    Default XBOX @ E3!

    werthliving.com

    Well Xbox did what it needed to do. Showed a whole slew of games. My highlights were Killer Instinct (How did they keep this quiet?), Ryse, and Sunset Overdrive.

    Price was also announced. $499.00 with a November release date. Thoughts on the conference today?

    I just preordered one from Amazon, $499 and 11/30 ship date. Im more curious about the media hub and blu-ray drive.

    I changed my mine after the Sony presentation. Dropped the Xbox One preorder for a PS4 preorder.

    Xbox has less horsepower, costs $100 more, and they are requiring an internet connection and going against using used games. It's odd, M$ just became Sony with DRM and Sony relaxed.

    I'm not happy about the fact the Xbox has to connect to a home server every 24 hours and thier game borrowing policy is pretty shitty. Thats horrible, and even though I wont be gaming Im not giving M$ any of my money unless they smart up. Plus its $100 more.

    Yeah, the price is significant IMO.

    PS4 for me. Not paying an extra $100 for a Kinect I don't want or need.

    Ive kept both on preorder after thinking more about it. With Amazon Im on both launch units, so I can cancel at the last minute. Since streaming device/blu-ray player is my first need, I need to wait and see what the Xbone does. I think M$ is more serious on the TV and movie side of things. Im curious of their blu-ray drive implementation since its their first.

    I can see where that would appeal to some. I just want mine to play games. Isn't this what Sony tried with the PS3? MS just put out a game box and did well. Seems like MS is pulling a Sony this time around.

    It does seem like a flip flop, and M$ is fumbling right thru it.
