Director of programming for xbox live service "Major Nelson" answers questions from Reddit.

 

 

All I heard was white noise because I was too distracted by the burning hot chick interviewing rodent man.

Always on always watching you 2.0 Kinect. I'd put a posted note over the eye when not in use.

I have to post this gif everywhere, it's so perfect!

 

Basically Microsoft in the last week, starting with E3 and ending with this new announcement ->

 

nice_recoveryflu9k.gif

 

Anyway, now people are kinda sorry because they also lost the ability to share digital games. Kinda funny how things go. I'm actually seeing comments from people that are cancelling their XBOX pre-order because of this. :D I guess you can't please everyone.

 

In hindsight, focusing on having more liberties with digital software than with discs would have been better for most of us, since soon enough 90% of the games sold will in the form of a download, not a disc. So in the long-term, it might have been more beneficial.

 

The elimination of region-locking and online requirement is awesome! :o

 

And I'm really not worrying about Kinect when it comes to spying. If you let the government get away with sh*t like PRISM, Kinect should be your absolute last worry. With it or without it, you'll get spied on unless clear laws and policies are put in place.

 

Anyway, if I were to get a console, I think I'd still go for PS4, just because of the bigger processing power and more focus on games than all-around entertainment (that does not work in Romania). I probably won't though.

So MIcrosoft changed their minds about DRM stuff. 

 

I will still stick to PS4. Cheaper, a bit more powerful, smaller and I don't have to have Kinect. 

 

I'm still going to have the console on my desktop and the Xbox One is a bit too big, clumpsy and where the hell do I put the Kinect that needs to be connected *rofl* ?

 

And I like the exclusives coming to PS4. Microsoft has no other exclusive other than Halo I want to play.

Even though Microsoft is trying to same themselves, I'm still going to get a PS4 instead, like you, the Xbox One is too big for my desktop, I have no where to put that Kinect thingy.

It's really simple guys,  if we're comparing hardware, user interface, media compatibility and other features against the overall price... PS4 wins.

 

But in reality, people will make their decision based on exclusive game titles and other things like product loyalty or preferred handsets.

 

Although I prefer the xbox handset, I'm going to likely buy a PS4 because I like their price, and the exclusive games for xbox one do not interest me enough to buy their console.

No problem. This is from E3 for the PS4, there are probably going to be lot of other 3rd parties making this:

This whole reveal experience has offered some of the best popcorn moments in gaming history, I have no hatred/malice towards sony/ninteno or microsoft, I do have more love for sony due to psone and ps2 but I have only owned a 360 this generation. That being said microsoft have revealed the worst console with the worst marketing and the worst PR I have ever seen, I don't understand why anyone would chose the one over the Ps4 except for the odd exclusives (most of which are pc as well). The Wii U is nose diving and will only be saved once these 1st party games come out, for me the PS4 wont have the easy ride the Ps2 had but I think it will walk over the other two.

Hehe, well the reviews for the consoles are about what I expected. Xbox really is a much more ambitious piece of hardware with a lot of potential while Playstation will have better graphics but is fairly uninspired.
