    Default XBOX One - Hugely disappointed.

    So, Microsoft announced:
    No free online gaming, just like the 360. (Gold required. Also, Gold is required for Netflix and some other stuff too.)
    No backwards compatibility!!!!
    If offline for 24+ hours, then no online for you.
    Using used games restricted. You have to be online for 30 straight days.
    Still, $100 more expensive than the PlayStation 4.
    I mean, what were they thinking? The PS4 is better in almost every way imaginable.

    All this was debated and discussed months prior to the release. Sure its an impressive system like the PS4 but I think when it comes to the online experience Sony won the battle in terms of restrictions and others topics you discussed.

    Myself, I will be holding off for a while before even thinking of picking up the XBOX One. Let the price drop and more titles come out and make my decision from there. Until then my XBOX 360 serves me just fine

    1.) I'm not upset about the pay wall at all. Even PlayStation 4 implemented this for online gaming and without it Xbox Live wouldn't be as strong. As for hiding Netflix behind the wall that's a touchy subject but I could care less personally.

    2.) Sony doesn't offer backwards compatibility either. Its the nature of the beast now that consoles run on PC architecture now rather than the console style of the past.

    3.) Your information is severely outdated. Microsoft removed the 24 hour check in way before the console was released due to so much negative feedback. The check in was to verify you owned the disc still because you wouldn't need to insert it every time to play. If you didn't sign online then you would need to sign in to verify. You wouldn't lose access to signing on though and that was never part of their vision.

    4.) You can buy used games as much as you wish and play them immediately. In fact, most 3rd party developers and Microsoft have removed online passes from last generation. Again, you have outdated information.

    5.) Its more expensive but its worth every penny of it. Kinect is an amazing add-on but many don't realize its potential. I won't play games with it but the voice commands are worth the price of admission. I walk into my room and say Xbox On. This turns on my TV, Xbox One, cable and speakers. I say "Xbox Watch TV" and it switches to TV. During Battlefield I say "Need Ammo" and he calls for ammo. NBA 2K14 you can get a technical for cussing when near a referee.

    You need to look up the facts before you make a post like this. I'm a nice guy but others would label you a fanboy just for spreading outdated information so your console of choice seems justified. I have both Xbox One and PS4 and clearly Xbox One has a far superior online service just like it did last generation. The real question comes down to this; which system has the exclusives you care about most? In the end that's all that matters because both systems are nearly identical and the power difference between the two has a far smaller gap than the 50% number people throw around.
