YEY! We get the One here in Portugal. And only one year later than the more powerful competition! Look at the amount of not caring that I'm giving.

I'm seriously curious to see how gimped the system will be outside the launch countries. The 360 was already seriously gimped here with virtually nothing but online multiplayer when it came to online support.

Ex-Microsoft creative director discusses the "Internet hate phenomenon"
Adam Orth, who left Microsoft after his Xbox One "deal with it" comments drew controversy, talks about "Internet toxicity" at GDC this week.
Quote:
"I was becoming the next victim of the Internet hate phenomenon. It was an absolute feeding frenzy. My public and private life was fair game," he said, as reported by GamesIndustry International. "People began to distance themselves from me. I was dejected, ashamed, and embarrassed. I destroyed my career and feared being blacklisted by the industry. I went from income to no income."

Orth received death threats and some people even wished cancer upon him and his child, he said. But he's not worried about the potential for Internet threats to materialize into real-world violence. Instead, he said it's seriously sad that society has "regressed" to a point where the kind of behavior and comments sent his way are acceptable when someone has an opinion other than their own.

"Most developers don't even raise an eyebrow at this because this is the new normal. As an industry we've become desensitized to this insane behavior because it's overwhelming, ubiquitous, and unstoppable. Somehow we've devolved while moving forward, and there's no going back," he said.

Orth explained that he's seen an "us versus them" theme rise to the surface between developers and players. This negative trend has the potential to spiral even further out of control, he said.

"It's chilling," he said, recalling a quote from one developer he spoke with saying this issue "represents a total breakdown of how our industry fundamentally functions and foreshadows possible dark times ahead. Internet toxicity has the power to sh** on something beautiful and destroy it."

In all honesty, what he did, deserve massive feedback against him. Though I agree it is overboard right now, however, at the same time I believe that it is needed. Its a wake up call to the gaming industry. You do not disrespect your customers and expect no retaliation. Thinking about it, the gaming industry's return in investment is the customers, you think that it would be obvious to respect the customers.

Customers easily destroyed Mass Effect 3 and EA, now customers easily destroyed Xbox 1 and Microsoft. Its a wake up call, we're not going to take it.

Well, yes, that's usually what happens when you "develop" in a way that's intended to screw the consumer for your own benefit.

This is highlighted by the fact that game developers stop making media releases to customers, but instead make media releases to shareholders. Customers no longer matter, what matters is making the stock prices rise. Hence EA's announcement that Simcity2014 made millions, and thus it is supposedly a great success, with no comment on it being a failed product.

Yeah, Adam Orth can have his cake & eat it too. He brought this upon himself with the sheer, utter arrogance he displayed. How he can criticize Online Toxic behavior and not realize that he vented alot of "Toxic Behavior" himself is beyond me.

Anyways, the XBox One's ban to be sold in China has recently been lifted and is scheduled to be released later this year in China. But American Mcgee (remember this guy? Damn, I barely remember him myself!) doesn't think it'll succeed in China. I don't always agree with McGee, but I think he does have a point when he says that F2P and PC Gaming is too popular in China for the XBox One to catch on.

It's not just him, pretty much everyone with an understanding of China's gaming scene is saying the same thing.

It seems that Microsoft is going is going to be doing few things in June other then the E3 stuff.

They are going to be launching an Xbox One without the Kinect at a $399, in the Fall and are going to be drop paywall for apps meaning you won't need a Gold sub in order to access apps, for both Xbox 360, and Xbox One users.

Oh shit... Microsoft just hit the panic button

It looks like their sales numbers might be a lot lower than we imagined.

they are heading the right direction. but $399 for this system is still too much.
sorry MS, don't want your console still. Wii U has just recently won me over.

i'll buy a Wii U soon for Super Smash Bro. i guess i'll be completely skipping out
on Xbone this generation.

Yeah, the weird thing is that MS is now competing with WiiU as the "2nd console".

They can sell to people who have waited this long, but for those who already got PS4, they need to compete with wiiU for value instead.

Most people still haven't taken the plunge. The larger slice of the market is still waiting for the first big games to hit and the price to drop bellow 400$ to actually jump on board. It happened with the last generation and will happen with this one.

I'm pretty sure Microsoft knows this and they should be switching gears to try and catch that slice of the market if possible. I'm betting that they are just being delayed by the shake up that happened when Don Mattrick was finally ousted (god did he completely kill the 360 for me. It went from my most used console to a dust magnet in just a few years).

I think a few of us saw the Kinectless Xbox One coming though i'm still quite surprised to see it so soon. For all the missteps they have taken every since the first announcement of the console, they are moving quickly to readjust to the market. Hopefully this competition will keep Sony on it's toe and get Nintendo to move quickly.

Personally i don't see XB1 as a secondary console like Wii U. Unlike Wii U, both XB1 and PS4 have a much more robust media box functionality and thus overlapping market as a primary console for regular household.

Hell no.
The thing is, people, who are into video-gaming already have a ps4, WiiU and a XbOne. So no the removal of kinect, to reduce the investment price, is really just to get potential new current gen customer to consider the Xbone as an alternative to the PS4, and not as a second console.
The Wii U is not really competing with the PS4/Xbone in a sense, because nobody is daft enough to get it just for non exclusive titles, and reason why some folks have branded it as a side console, where as PS4 and Xbone are really competing in the area.

I don't really think that's true. So far only the early adopters bought the new gen consoles, most gamers are still sitting on the fence waiting for the games.

Consoles don't sell consoles, Games sell consoles. Nintendo learned that with the Wii U, Sony learned that with the PS3 and so far the next gen libraries are still very very sparsely populated to make any conclusions. Would you have pegged the PS3 to match the 360 like it does today when the console was still in it's first year? Remember that the PS3 had no games and was a massive barbecue grill that people had to get a second job to afford? Don't count the Xbox One out already (I won't buy it but that's more to do with the complete lack of support Microsoft gives my country rather than the console itself).
