All E3 2013's Xbox One and Xbox 360 videos in one place

Postby Thos. » 11 Jun 2013, 14:49

I must say that in spite of everything, Microsoft are in the lead with exclusives. Although Sony have held back on some announcements for later in the year, apparently.

And BTW, this feature, all in one place: http://m.oxm.co.uk/56060/xbox-one-game-videos/

Haven't MS said they've held back a few for Gamescom as well? I don't think we've seen everything (good or bad, games or functionality) from either of the big two yet.

That Xbox One Halo trailer is stupid. Why is the Master Chief wearing a hooded cloak over his armour? What's the point?

I have to admit to being very torn; 2 or 3 weeks ago the next Microsoft console was definitely the one for me, as I love my 360, but I now have serious doubts:

When it comes to the One:

I dislike the idea that my One could become a brick if I lose my internet (VirginMedia dug mine up a few months back and I lost it for 2 weeks).

If I don’t want a game I prefer to sell it on eBay as I get more money than a trade-in offers – with the system being implemented by MS, that would appear to be impossible.

My sons have their own consoles and often borrow my games, that would now appear to be out of the question (albeit they may be able to access my library – but MS haven’t told us yet whether there will be any restrictions or fees involved).

I have 320 GB hard-drive on my 360 – and I constantly have to delete installed games in order to make room for others – the fact that the hard-drive cannot be removed (therefore could not be replaced with a bigger one) is potentially problematic and is definitely a pain!

I don’t want the Kinnect system, but I suspect that I will not be able to simply leave it in the box.

The only MS exclusives that I would be unhappy to not play are the Halo and Gears franchises.

And now the PS4:

I dislike the feel of the controller (not as hefty as the 360’s), but I suspect I could get used to it.

The hard-drive is removable and therefore upgradable.

I can continue to sell my games on eBay should I wish.

If I lose my internet I can continue to play games indefinitely, which is the way it should be.

No Kinnect (or eye camera) included – absolutely ideal!

I can continue to allow my sons to borrow my disc just as I do now.

There have been a far higher number of disc-based quality exclusives on the PS3 than on the 360 (almost twice as many in fact); Killzone, Resistance, God of War, Infamous and Uncharted to name but a few.

Ultimately, I really like my 360 – but there does seem to be a certain arrogance surrounding Microsoft and the One, almost as if because they won the battle with the PS3 that they are a dead cert to win against the PS4 – but if I, as a 360 fanboy (albeit a really old one!), have my doubts, then I can only imagine that if Microsoft are to win this time, then they may find themselves involved in a far harder fight as I, for one, seem to be talking myself into getting a PS4 next time, and Microsoft are doing a very poor job of convincing me otherwise.

Reading your comments this one encapsulates my thinking.

For whatever reason I can't help feeling brand loyal to MS. Don't ask me why. Maybe it's because a few years ago some mates had 360's and some had PS3s and there was good natured rivalry. But having seen and read so much information and opinion in the past few weeks I seem to be straining to find reasons to pick MS this time around - which tells me there's something very wrong.

Noticed the focus in on the "Delicia" in the AC4 trailer, so here's some info I found on the internet. "Delicia - A 460 ton East Indiaman, she sailed out of the Thames on the 11th April 1718 with an escort of 4 naval ships, the frigates Milford and Rose, and the sloops Buck and Shark. The fleet was under the charge of Woodes Rogers on his voyage to New Providence. At Nassau, they dallied with Charles Vane before settling down in the harbour. Eventually the naval ships sailed off to greener pastures, leaving Rogers with the Delicia as his only guard ship."
This will probably give a heads up as to the more villainous characters in the story.

1) Good that MGS is a stealth franchise, because child soldiers will cause controversy.
2) That looks more like Insomniac!
3) That doesn't look like Faith, and she already had that Tattoo. Prequel? I can't remember what her sister Kate looks like either. Hmm...
4) I hope that the quantum part of "quantum break" is at least slightly scientifically accurate.

Sony have admitted that the technology to block used games and lending games is inside the console for the publishers to make use of. Don't believe Sony's FUD.

http://www.vg247.com/2013/06/11/sony-re ... publisher/

Now they've "clarified" to say it refers to online activity only. I still don't trust them.

I'd accept this as a valid reason if not for the fact I am pretty certain his armour is air tight (hence why he can breathe in space). I'm more inclined to think Chief has just gone loopy.

In all likelihood though, the trailer was probably just conceived in a marketing department where they fought "let's make a Halo trailer that totally isn't a Halo trailer until - BAM! We show our iconic protagonists face (read: "helmet") even though the context for hiding his face made no sense".

WOW destiny and the division have me terribly excited i will still be buying an xbox one i have decent internet and have never traded in games and rarely borrow or trade with my mates so MS have my money. Plus all the xbox one's online features suit my way of life i always play online with my brother and we love big open multiplayer games and if the Xbox ones online features improve that then that is just the icing on the cake. Now i just need to save up 430 quid which is a lot of money damn you MS :roll:

MS said on their website (Tinno posted a link but I can't find it now) saying that you could have up to 10 people in your 'family' accessing your library from any console. The implication was there would be no fees for this, as the same page mentioned the possibility of fees for preowned. They did specify that it wouldn't be available for the first 30 days after launch, but I'm guessing this will be because of the fact they need to be in your list for more than 30 days.

My guess? We get two lists, friends (as at at the moment) and Family. Contrary to popular opinion MS aren't stupid and realise that requiring a single family to buy multiple copies of the game can't be justified in any way and this is their solution.

Yes, I was talking to one of my friends about this last night and was saying that this could be revolutionary; being able to allow access to my games (when I'm not playing them!) sounds like a really cool idea, but I do wonder what the limitations on it are as it could effectively mean less sales of some games because only one copy would need to be bought whilst allowing 10 more people to play it. I do wonder whether there will be restrictions on time / completion on the games, and whether individual publishers will have to enable this ability or potentially block it entirely. Potentially a very good idea (which is probably why I have doubts! :lol: ) and particularly good for my friends as I have an extensive library of games (361 games on the 360).

Debatable! After all, there has been considerable concern and debate raised since the debacle of the initial Reveal, the failure to clarify things following the Reveal, and the fact that so many questions remain unanswered. I know you will be getting everything you want from the One (and I am genuinely pleased for you), but there are probably many more of us out there who are wondering whether MS are in fact driving away many potential customers through the decisions they are making and the lack of answers forthcoming.
