Despite all the grumbling regarding the Xbox One, in terms of games there's a lot of exciting stuff on the way.

I'm super excited for Watch Dogs and The Crew.
The Crew is pretty much the racing game I was hoping would eventually come to consoles. I'm happy we're finally getting a racer with customization again.

In my opinion, Ubisoft won when it comes to the amount of games that just look badass.
Watch Dogs
The Crew
The Division
Assassins Creed 4
Splinter Cell Blacklist

And I'm even more disappointed with the Xbox One
I even got into a little debate with Xbox Support on twitter.
I asked what will happen in 10 years when they inevitably shut down XBL services on the Xbox One(since most of us know that you MUST connect to the internet to play games) and they said, "We aren't able to speculate on a hypothetical situation here"

So - just think about the future. I don't know about you guys, but even I still play some retro games, and even an original Xbox game once in a while.

This is a random concern, maybe someone will know:

Regarding Kinect 2.0 having to be connected for the XB1 to work, can I turn it off while playing games? I don't want it to register my voice or movement and affect what I'm doing in the game if I don't want it to.

Apparently Microsoft has big plans for the X1 and it doesn't care what the general public thinks.
I think the always online thing has a lot to do with the Cloud usage. Anyway, I'm tired of hearing everyone complaining. Basically Microsoft will change things as it sees fit. In time, the price will drop as it always does and if Microsoft has soft sales it will be forced to change the Rental, Trade In and always online policies.
Until then, I'll buy both systems and test out the not so sure games on the PS4 and buy the ones I really want for the X1.

#3 I know you can turn off the Microphone for the Kinect that is out now. If they have this feature, turn it off and turn the Kinect so it faces a wall. Problem solved... hopefully.

Love here to bring list of news. Unlike Gamespot or IGN or other. They haven't done well with list of E3 2013. Maybe they have it but this here is better and depth clean to be honest xx. :)

@5, thank you for that. I've just heard so many XB1 games talk about "...with Kinect, you can do _____ during the game," and I don't want adjusting my body or saying a certain word randomly to affect what my character does. This feels like a make or break for me at this point.

First of all, I currently use the xbox 360 and according to the code of the fanboy, I have the right to criticize.
Well I do not need a cable television box that comes necessarily with motion sensor and is more expensive than a real video game. goodbye ms arrogant, I'm going to sony.

@8 I'm pretty sure they only said you can turn off certain aspects, as to avoid breaking privacy laws in Australia.

Also PowerA have confirmed to be making a PS4 controller that has the weight, feel and stick layout of a 360 controller.

I'm so glad there's no "I'm buying a PS4" comments on this story. Doing my head in, these people should really think before posting such a thing, and mainly they should think "who really cares what console i'm going to buy?"
Keep that to yourself. I'm sure Microsoft will sleep at night because they lost your business. Personally, i'm going to stick with Microsoft, I loved the 360, didn't like the PS3, hate the sony controller, I always have an internet connection, so I'm sticking with the One.
