So, peoples thoughts on the Xbox One and how it looks?
WARNING: Below is not a calm and neutral observation but a very angry and furious rant on it.
If you do not want to get heated up or angry at the console (or me if you like the Xbox One) please stop reading now and simply make a reply giving your own opinion on the console. I will not bash people for having different opinions.
Me personally... It looks like the biggest piece of shit that was ever advertised by the gaming community.
First off they barely even touched on video games, they kept going on about graphics, movies, videos, skype and sports.
The only games they even mentioned was Call of Duty, Sports and Racing (And no, Halo doesn't count. They were advertising a TV series, not a game).
Then we got the whole issue with it not being compatible with 360 games, so I can't even sell my 360 and then play those on the Xbox One.
Also if I want to lend a CD to a friend and/or I want to buy a used game that's been out for a few years... you need to paying another damn fee to use the CD.
So now me and my friends can't just lend games to each other to try out, now I can't go buy a cheap used game and enjoy it any more.
You also got the fact that some games might require internet to even play. That completely screws anyone with either:
a) Internet issues
b) No Internet for their console
Not even Steam (an online game store) is like that, at least they have off line mode so games you do own can still be played offline.
Then there's the news that the Kinect will detect how many people you have watching a movie or TV show on the console at once, and if the Kinect deems there's too many people watching then it will charge you an additional fee to watch it.
Want to invite the family or a group of friends over to watch a Movie or TV Show together? Oh give us more money please!
Now let's look at the actual game part they chose to talk about... Call of Duty.
I won't comment on the author for the story since I don't know much about him and peoples opinions on quality writing and story vary greatly.
But I will make a comment on the graphics and 'new game play features'.
First off, they did a side by side comparison to show Ghosts graphics were better. And they were, slightly.
But did anyone notice that while MW3's graphics shown was gameplay footage that Ghosts was just single models in front of black or white screen?
In other words they had to focus on nothing but the model so it could look at high quality as possible?
Once it's thrown in with the back ground, movement, shooting etc you can expect it's graphics quality to drop and not be as good as it's built up to be.
And then the gameplay features, move over small cover and fish move out of the way...
Really? They're not even trying if that's all they have to care about.
Oh, you can customize your guys appearance now... great, Call of Duty now has a feature that almost every other game has had for many years ago. Good going for catching up.
Honestly, I think the Xbox One has become a Television console, it shouldn't even be considered a gaming console.
Edit: Some funny news though, apparently people had issues trying to watch this video over their 360's if they had Kinect.
Reason being whenever they said the word 'Xbox' the console would either pause the video or go back to the consoles home page.
