Japan gets left in the cold. No China either. Not that Microsoft's systems were big sellers in either country.

Not many consoles get released in China at launch... or ever. But wow I didn't even notice Japan was missing off that list!

That is a pretty huge thing, is MS just not releasing in Japan? Bizarre

EDIT: Found some articles that state they don't plan on launching in any Asia territories, including Japan, until "late 2014"

There are roughly 100000 Military men, women, and dependants that live in Japan. They cannot play Xbox One. This is similar to region lockouts for DLC that happened to me when I lived in Japan. I was on the phone with MS for nearly 8 hours trying to get an explanation as to why there was no support for APO addresses, as well as not allowing me to download XBLA games.

So this happened. Microsoft is sending a message. "You may fight for our freedom military, but you aren't good enough to relax with our product if you are downrange in a desert or sub."

Why would they want big brother in their house anyway?

Microsoft is Pro Spying Pro dumbed down citizens (common core) and Anti Citizen if some of the MS disasters are any barometer to go by.

PS4 is the winner of this round before the war even BEGINS.

SO, after the overwhelming positive response to sony at e3(seriously, I've never seen anything like it before), plus the majority of the press praising and supporting them while openly mocking microsoft, plus now EA coming out and publicly stating they didn't lobby MS on the used games/online requirement crap thus placing the blame on this stupid plan on them, who else thinks microsoft will change their policies before launch?

Without the online requirement DRM for offline games and enabling used games, I feel a lot of gamers who decided to switch sides could come back. But the price point and the requirement of kinect which the overwhelming majority of gamers aren't interested in will still affect them a lot, specially the price point. I think Sony is in a great position to win this generation by far even if MS backs down on its bullshit.

If they still go with this and don't change their policy before launch, well, I see them doing much, muuuch worse than the ps3 did at first in this generation. Remember Sony was just as cocky and delusional as microsoft is now, but they didn't have such a shitstorm around them at the time.

i don't see why people would be 'turned back' regardless

100 dollars more expensive, more expensive online, less powerful, less first party development, more focused on trying to control your experience, kinect being really dumb and microsoft pushing it further up people's asses anyways

i see 'OMG HALO' and that's about it

If all the major PC DRM/Authentication fuckups are anything to go by (Ubisoft, Sim City, Diablo 3) it's their own servers you should be more worried about than your own connection. If there's a problem on their end it won't even matter if you have internet or not. And I have no doubt their servers are going to be compromised out of sheer spite, as there are already precedents for that happening.

I think it's safe to say microsoft is currently delusional enough not to see that Anonymous and similar groups are going to go after their servers as soon as they are up just to show people how fucked up is paying 500 dollars for a plastic brick. This kind of crap is what they live for.

Basically, I wanted the Xbone to be what the PS4 has been announced as being... Lower price, better features, no ridiculous spying. It's a huge disappointment that they think any (older person) will actually be interested in this. But they might have the young Call of Duty audience on board.

Which is funny because it's not like the PS4 isn't also getting Call of Duty.

I think the Xbox CoD scene is more notorious mostly because a microphone is included, whereas on the PS3 one was not. So maybe there were kids calling you racial slurs on PSN but you never knew because you couldn't hear it. :-D

I'm gonna get Call of Duty: Ghosts on PC, so eh. The point I was making was that I don't see the Xbox One as something that appeals to us seasoned gamers.
