Securing the future of dust nicely after microsoft announces that all users will have to be online once every 24 hours to play any games (to an overwhelming uproar of long time xbox fans), they can NOT sell or use previously owned games all while the kinect spys on you all day every day, BARGAIN only 450 dollars!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IvTLuek9ung watch this for a very dramatic version of what long time xbox fans think.

Nothing is sinking. This is just PR stuff. There will be an Xbox after this one and one after that.

The very sun of heaven seemed distorted when viewed through the polarising miasma welling out from this sea-soaked perversion, and twisted menace and suspense lurked leeringly in those crazily elusive angles of carven rock where a second glance shewed concavity after the first shewed convexity.

He isn't, Francis is a chareceture he made for the lols.

Bad news is he gets depressed sometimes from the hate mail of people who thinks he is Francis, normal him talking about the PS4 is here. Been subbed to him for a while, hes getting married soon and got himself setup to go for an operation to try and get rid of his excess fat. Seems he's been dealt a hard hand with diabetes and a few other issues.

I don't think CCP had any choice regarding the Xbone. CCP approached both Sony and MS regarding Dust 514. Microsoft didn't like how an Xbox game would have to communicate with non-MS servers and how that violated rules that all Xbox games had to follow. Microsoft also doesn't like free updates. Since Dust 514 would break those rules, it wasn't allowed.

Sony had similar rules for the PS3. Since Dust 514 would break Sony's rules, those rules were removed.

They weren't clever enough to release it on the PC where it belongs, though.

Dust was probably out of CCPs financial range to develop without some sweet sweet exclusive money. That's what keeps the fable games floating.

They were clever enough to get bucket-loads of Sony cash, though.

Releasing for PC would mean no free R&D cash... Much smarter they way they did things.

I love Francis and every one of his videos. More power to him.

Yeah its a shame that his impression is so good the trolls go for the bait and harass him. Well this is the internet i suppose, kinda literally asked for it in a way, perhaps he should have thought of some sort of disclaimer at the end.

I found that the new xbox focuses A LOT on live TV so i guess is litterally being directed at all homes for media center use that also plays game, unlike the far more reasonable PS4 aimed at gamers for the use of gaming.

Oh and also, the new xbox always listens to your conversations in case you say xbox on, and want the needy son of a bee sting oh and by the way you cant use the xbox without the kinect plugged in. *tinfoil*

1. No matter how much the fine print on the XBox One sucks, a huge number of people will still buy it anyway.
In the end, the PS4 might sell in noticeably larger numbers, but I seriously doubt it will ever go to much more than double of what XB1 sells. Currently preorders are pretty much on par, contrary to what you'd expect given the critical backlash.

2. I have no idea whether Sony helped CCP financially in any way or not (hopefully yes, but I would not bet on it), however that's wholly irrelevant as to the target platform - CCP simply could NOT do what they wanted to do with DUST in collaboration with Microsoft, because Microsoft would not budge on the "internal" rules (basically, Microsoft would NOT allow CCP to have the type of game world interactions that are possible on Sony's network).

3. If you really pick PS4 because it's the lesser of two evils, why not take the third option instead, stick with just a PC ?

i cant play dust on my PC, i assume i will be able to play dust on PS4, so thats another tick for the PS4! :D

I understand the M$ fussyness over sharing bits of networks, esp with smelly icelanders.

Yes many will buy any xbox thats ever released on pre order, remember how many of those are gifts and such for others who "love gaming" and out of whos left - how many actually listened to the E3 reports and such, i bet a WHOLE BUNCH just went for it blindly - this is not a good way to prove its an okay device compared to the PS4.

I expect a mass boycott of the already very squeezed gaming community, at the xbox fussy requirements and blatant inclusion of highly unpopular technologies just to squeeze even more cash in the future. Consumers have a smart brain collectively, look at CCPs lesson in "do what we tell you and like it" vs listening.

No matter how ***** Xbone will be , There will still be a million people beating the **** out of each other to get one on black friday.

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

Only if it has the exclusives. Treat developers badly, they won't make you games. If developers don't make games for the gaming platform, it will die.

Speaking of treating developers badly:
Quote:
We spoke with Marcin Iwinski, co-founder and joint CEO of CD Projekt Red about the matter. "I was just in a restaurant and saw the list," Iwinski told us. "I was surprised, and I really hope that it isn't final. I think Polish gamers will speak out loud. From my perspective, it's a sad situation."

Lets make the Xbone not work in countries that have developers that are working on games we feature in the Xbox conference. Then let those developers know how much we care about them by making them find it out when the story makes gaming news.

If that's how MS treats the developers of featured games, how will they treat other devs ?

Well, regarding independent developers with no publisher, MS response when it comes to the Xbox One is "Go f*ck yourselves".

Oh, and according to another Forbes journalist:

"In talking to a developer who wished to remain anonymous, gamers will see a difference on Day One when they compare third party PS4 games to Xbox One head-to-head. The developer told me the PS4 is 40 percent more powerful than Xbox One and games like Call of Duty Ghosts will be noticeably different out of the gate."

The new Xbox just keeps looking better and better each day.
