As we anticipated Microsoft to either redeem themselves after that seemingly disastrous Xbox One Reveal last May, it seems that Microsoft went ahead an go on with their #dealwithit mentality. So here let’s watch the Microsoft E3 2013 Press Conference so you can judge for yourself.
They boasted exclusive games but most of the games they have showcased were multiplatform and so far the only game worth their salt was TitanFall.
Still how they come up with the 24 hour mandatory online validation check is beyond me, and their used game policy will be the bane (and probably downfall?) of the Xbox One. And the price, at $499 it’s $100 dollar more than the PS4. I hefty price that turns into a big expensive paper weight if your internet goes out for more than 24 hours. It basically seems that you will be just renting your game, it does not seem that you fully own the game because of these restrictions. Way to go Microsoft!
Personally, a lot of gamers think Microsoft just shot themselves in the foot twice. They already had two chances to wow the gaming world but ended up handing the console war for this generation to the PS4.
I don’t know about your IQ score, or how much of a hardcore Xbox fan you are, but to be fair, if you still want the Xbox One you can pre-order your Xbox One over at Amazon for $499 here.
