Nnnnnnnope.


This is either the dumbest idea ever and it will bite Microsoft in the butt, or it will make them very rich.

I mean, I enjoy Halo as much as the next guy, but please pleasepleaseplease tell me that the One isn't going to generate more heat then a toaster oven. Because if I have to shell out 500 dollars to replace a console and all my games on it every time, I will flat-out not buy it. I will not pay for my games twice.
Console vs PC fighting is basically the male nerd version of Twilight's Edward vs Jacob.

I damn near spat water.
Love X Box. Very excited. Don't care about the IE or whatever stuff, since I have a computer to do browsing on. But I needs my Halo.

Must have Halo. And Destiny!
They also announced a Halo TV show.

Eh...
As far as a Halo TV show... I'd rather stick with the books when it come to Halo material outside the video game.

Nnnnnnnope.


Bad idea level = Epic

I was irritated about the "always on" connection floating around. This is far, far deeper into the realm of nope.
Apart from console exclusives, there is next to no reason to buy consoles when assembling your own computer is cheap, easy, and provided much more functionality than region-locked, rigidly controlled "don't unscrew this plate or it'll void your warranty" .

PCs can do everything consoles can do and do it much better and with more versatility. There's no contest.
Welp, even steam is making fun of it.

They can be cheap and they can also cost well over any console would dare to dream of charging as well.

One perk to consoles is the prices are pretty static. PC costs are all over the map.
..........I will keep my 360, keep my AC 4 pre-order and even watch dogs to 360....because this new Xbox One console gives me all kinds of nope.
Yeah, I'm not sure about allowing always online requirement for Developers. It really hasn't work well with the launch of recent titles that came out with it (SimCity comes to mind). And as far as having to install on the console and have to repay if I want to take the game to a friends house to play is a major turn off.

A side note:
your reporting of my posts has opened my eyes. i see all of the posts clearly showing how great of a console the xbox one will be and the haters' posts are blocked from my vision. i will never say anything that might set someone off again and i will call anyone who doesnt like my favorite console a troll
Or you know, you can always stick to the topic of the thread, that being the Xbox one, instead of going off on some soap box tangent about "PC master etc...". That doesn't come of as juvenile in the least. But no, continue, because derailing a thread is always the cool thing to do.
