Ah you need to do us a review if you get one

Yeah, regarding the second hand games - what were they thinking? Surely any consumer is well within their rights to re-sell. Once the money has changed hands, what business is it of theirs? Or is it not really our property? That's the impression i'm getting. Not to mention the rumours are that games will be around the 60-70 mark...

Apparently, you will only be able to trade in games at shops and then the shop will be charged the activation fee. So trade in prices are obviously going to plummet ad pre-owned prices will soar - it's almost like they're trying to get rid of the High Street store who rely so enormously on Pre-owned.

I don't know about you, but we like to rent games incase they're not our cup of tea. Unless they have an awfully safe returns policy, people are going to be far more picky with what they buy. And so many people get into a series by buying the first one when it's super cheap and then buying the subsequent installments full price when they come out if it's their sort of game - not everyone feels comfortable parting with a big wedge of cash from watching a few teaser clips.

Additionally with the online check-in palava, what will happen when the next gen of console comes out and they close down the servers? This is just so complicated and greedy - it's not even like Xbox really has a piracy problem like PC games do.

I sound like such a moaner hahaha.

That's not moaning! I said pretty much the same thing Unless I'm a moaner too.

We very much "try before we buy". If it goes how I'm thinking its going to its really going to suck.

I've watched all of the conferences so far, and even though there is no forced-DRM on PS4, and it's 80 cheaper, I will still be getting the Xbox One on launch. Far stronger line up of games xx

My OH is getting the Xbox One because he seems to be the most loyal Xbox player ever, haha. Personally to me PS4 sounds a bit better so far but if KH3 and FFXV are coming to both consoles I'll just play those on his Xbox One haha.

It's too funny that Microsoft went and backtracked on their DRM policies, used game sales, and mandatory 24-hour internet check in. That stuff was all crap to begin with, but they're still not talking about the huge price difference between the PS4 and the Xbone, nor are they backtracking on the mandatory always-on Kinect. I also think it's too little too late; yes they listened to feedback, but it's because they knew the Xbone wouldn't sell very well, and I don't trust them not to implement their crappy always-on internet features and lack of used game sales once the system is already out. I doubt many people will be buying the Xbone, especially since the PS4 has seemed a lot better from the beginning and Sony never tried to screw people over.

Definitely too late, they've just shown every Xbox fan how greedy they are! Taking money from people which is unnecessary. Too late to apologise
