Huh. That's a lot. They could fund several titles for that, and bribe even more into being exclusive.

Microsofts trying too hard to make a profit off of used games. They're not realizing that the consumer won't like this feature.

I figure if Microsoft had aced the presentation and we were all raving about how good it is, we'd be calling it The One.

A friend of mine called it the Xbox None, as in it focuses on none of the things gamers actually care about.

Xbox None, Xbone, etc.
Man is Microsoft screwed. They better get their shit straight or PS4 is gonna take over (which I'll be happy about).
As I saw the creature, I was as white as an egg. I was so scared I might crack from fear. As the humanoid began to lunge after me, I was walking on egg shells from how scared I was. It grabbed me, took me to its station, and cracked me open. The last thing I saw were my yellow insides cooked on a pan. Human nature is as evil as a rotten egg.

Why would you guys even think that Microsoft cares about beating Sony in the game console market? Sony already won that war a while ago. Sony takes over the real gamers, Nintendo got itself a separate niche of casual/family games, and Microsoft doesn't care about the game console market any more. Now MS is only interested in claiming the living room before Apple does. Apple is their enemy, MS realises that iPads, iPhones, and other crap is infringing on their loose hold of the living room appliances. So they try to solidify their hold by consolidating the control over the living room.

Now... let me tell you something Microsoft.

If the GERMANS, call your device a "twisted nightmare". You might want to re-think what you're doing.

Found it kinda funny, I don't know enough about the Dreamcast to say if it's appropriate, but ya
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

I'm just glad Titanfall will also be available for the 360.
...
I think Microsoft shot themselves in the foot (for the thirtieth time) on this one...

So... basically Microsoft said if you aren't happy with the Xbox One, you can go fuck yourself.

Hmm, not sure what to think about that just yet.

My response to that: "Fine, fuck you to Microsoft. I just wont by your crappy overpriced console. Have fun with the proverbial train wreck that will be your next console launch, hope your families don't starve when you stop making money."

(Wow, that seemed unusually harsh for me...)

Anyhoo, I noticed one of you guys posted the Cynical Brit's redub and I figured you'd like to see the second part:


Also, CliffyB made a little rant about PS4's used game policy and generally made an ass out of himself to which a Nintendo executive of all people named Reggie replied saying that the best way to stop used game sales is to, "Just make better games."
I know, genius isn't it?
Just put in the effort to make the most fun and interesting games possible and people might actually want to keep it and continue to have fun with them.
Apparently this policy is why Nintendo isn't as effected by used game sales as other companies.
Anyways, I've ranted enough, sorry about that.

Here's my source for the burn I mentioned.

You mean that thing that Koei brought out with Gust and will eventually fuck up by taking all personality away from by adding more and more generic, prepubescent males..... or just turn into Dynasty Warriors Anime edition?
