Seems like Sony and MS decided to rush to market and it resulted in two consoels that lacked many features of the previous versions.
 
 

Again, its a result of starting over. They couldnt just port features for whatever reason. The reason they took this hit was mostly due to the fact that the 360 OS was simply too limited to carry over to the next gen and offer MS the flexibility they wanted. Moving to a windows 8 core opens up a lot of options, but it means they have to suffer this period of severe lack in features.

Sony made a similar choice for the ps4, sacrificing many features of the ps3 in order to build a more robust OS for the future.

 

I'm not talking about literally copying and pasting code, but they didn't think to include parties and have them behave like they did before? They've stripped back the OS to barebones almost and only worked on the new stuff exclusive to X1. And yeah, this is an issue for both, I'm not picking on MS/X1 here. Removing CD/MP3 etc was a foolish move.

I hope Microsoft leverages some of its IPs and creates a Minesweeper MMO for Xbox One.

I would hope so in a debut year! If the last exclusive was in March that'd be pretty worrying. Doing it from memory isn't easy with such a busy release calendar :laugh:

 

I think they'll have more exclusives, this is just for unannounced exclusives.

 

I think they are talking about Halo 2 Anniversary, because it was a voice actor who leaked that info and the game hasn't been announced yet.

Plus they said a halo game was coming in 2014 and its not Halo 5.

 

I would be extremely disappointed if this is the only unannounced exclusive the Xbox One has coming in 2014.. but I wouldn't be surprised.

Boom! My hard drive is over half full and it's only been 90 days. We need that external HDD patch quick for all these damn games!

 

As the Xbox One HDD is a 5400RPM SATA 2 drive, I wonder if an external USB3 SSD will be faster.

I wonder how many of these exclusives are fresh new IP's versus (insert game title here) part 12.

Don't get me wrong, not all sequels are bad. But sometimes you got to give an IP a break.

Phil says they have invested a cool $$$-billion-$$$ into games alone for next gen.

Hopefully it nets a range of smaller, mid, AAA, and games with heavy Kinect integration...

Yes, it would.

Boggles the mind how both PS4 and XO put SATA 2 drives in their machines, (The PS4 even more so since they allow users to change the drive, resulting in SSD's running at half speed). They're supposed to be cutting edge and last for years to come. SATA 2 just seems so old. Why not 3?

I haven't been able to find conclusive evidence to suggest both consoles use SATA2, I know people have upgraded their PS4 hard drives with SATA3 drives and SSD drives and seen a noticeable improvement so I doubt that it uses SATA2.. But same as the Xbox One because SATA3 has been a standard for a few years.

All the console makers recycle the pretty much same IP's over and over as well as add new ones. But people are not only asking for new, but they are asking for sequels.

I would love to have Halo 2: Anniversary with full multiplayer unlike Halo CE: Anniversary. Halo 2 is probably one of my favorite Halo games.

Please tell me Phil Spencer is really planning to finally do Blinx the Timesweeper again! Now's the time to introduce him as the Mascot for Xbox and it would be greatly appreciated if a second try at him and the game series would be interesting to see.

I really think you need to accept the fact that this was a rushed release.

We have seen mountains of evidence that they were killing themselves trying to get it ina usable state by launch. From the drivers and sdk that was lacking to the drm system removal and everything else. I'm pretty convinced they simply cut it all to the bare bones and knew they would be rolling out updates pretty agressively after launch to get where they want to be. I mean just look at their current pace of updates.

Well its not the end of the world for you.

For me, I would be disappointed if there was not at least 1 new, unannounced title for this year.

Really? It comes equipped with a SATA 2 drive, and SSD's only run at reduced speed. Still faster than a HDD but not Max speed.
