    Yeah, how about, no?

    I bought a 360 for a couple of exclusives, probably got my money's worth out of it.

    But it hasn't been worth the headache of an always online DRM. Hell, I haven't had it hooked up to the net but once since I purchased it.

    With the PS4 better in so many ways so far and there being so few exclusives on the xbox... why buy one and pay extra and put yourself through the hassle?

    I'll probably give up xbox anyways and just get the ps4, but if the nextgen xbox requries an always online connection then I won't even buy it down the road. I'll also not recommend it to any of my friends or anybody that asks me my opinion. yes many areas of the world have great internet, but I just got decent internet a few weeks ago myself. and a lot of places have very crappy internet if any at all.

    it's just a dumb form of DRM.

    yeah... it really doesn't look like this is going to be a competative console war for this generation.

    nintendo can't get a game for the wii-u and microsoft is getting the worst PR from these rumors that some employes have been defending them rather vitriolically.

    I yearn for a new console that's just like the old days---I turn on the console, put a (single-player) game in the tray, and play the damn game

    It's a good thing I didn't do a drinking game for myself when I watched Sony's announcement by taking a shot everytime those idiots said "social." Looks like the Xbox will be much worse. Does Xbox even have a good exclusive that isn't pew pew shit that the previous two Xbox's have been living on?

    There's going to be some cool remasters of FFX and KH2 (single-player RPGs are a huge reason why I play consoles); I'd probably rather play those (again) instead. Then Get a PS4. Xbox can piss off with their "Always Online" crap (if true)

    I mostly play my consoles when my inet goes out, or when I go on vacation somewhere, something to do after the day is over. If this does end up being the case, I will not buy the new ones coming out.

    Better on paper doesn't mean much. All other things being equal, the PS3 would win the current console gen for me based on exclusives ... but the reality of it is that Xbox is winning for me because the XBL experience for competitive games is much better than PSN. Why? Because that's where the top players play, and so the competition is better. Whether the service itself is better or not, that's where the better players are, and that's where people have to play if they want to get better. As much as that sucks. If it wasn't for that, I wouldn't have bought an Xbox. Even the Japanese professional fighting game players who don't like Xbox play on Xbox because it's "better." and that's where the competition is. So for some people it's not really a choice if they want to remain competitive, if that's what they find enjoyable.

    If the next consoles have an always-on internet requirement, I'll still buy it. My PS3 and Xbox are currently always connected to the internet when they're on, so it wouldn't really be anything different.

    The PS3 is going to beat the xbox 360 despite the extremely bad and expensive start of the PS3. Also, only FPS games are slightly more competitive on xbox. Fighting games generally favor the PS3. I mean, the competitive 2v2 in SFxTekken can only be played on the PS3. The xbox is not better than the PS3 for fighting games, and is only slightly better for FPS games because of the presence of halo.

    EDIT: Evo 2013 has 5 games on the PS3 and 4 games on the X360 (though admittedly the games on the X360 are the big ones, like SSF4:AE)

    I see no reason to buy any next gen consoles anymore, I used to enjoy sitting down with a nice console game every now and again, but now that console makers aren't pushing the boundaries I see no reason to buy any more, I've got the Wii for its crazy shit & netflix machine capability, more than that seems pointless (unless I need to upgrade it for HHHHHD netflix)

    If Xbox are going to be putting all this shit on the 720, I see no reason why anyone would buy it, the current 360 model is already a rip off, so if PS can convert the current Xbox generation, then I see no way Microsoft will even compete, unless they secretly hack the PSN servers and expose security issues.. again, but we'll have to see what bs they can come up with at their first press release

    I'm going to need more information to go on than just that before I just deny something. But so far, no. I have no point in needing a console anymore. Xbox's constant connection could be good though, if they make Xbox Live free, and each system comes with free WiFi.

    Yes.

    Aslong as they don't ruin the controller I will buy one, I've been a xbox fan since the first console came out and even though I have a PS3 I love my 360 (enough that i'm onto my 4th after the past 3 died). Mostly because I cannot stand the playstation controller, it feels wrong.

    The always online rumor doesn't really bother me all that much since 90% of the games I play are online in someway anyway.

    my internet connection is rubbish at the best of times, NEEDing the console to be connected to the internet in order to play would be a no no (at least until I move somewhere with better internet) this goes for both the new xbox and ps4 (already got the WiiU)

    Xbox are taking a risk with it, and from what I've seen don't appear to be dealing with the critisms very well and are taking a "yeh, well, deal with it" kinda aproach...

    Not planning to buy any next gen console at all. But if I was going to, I'd never buy a console with always-online requirement. Haven't bought Diablo-3 because of that and it's just a single game. But a whole console? No. Go fuck yourself, microsoft. I'm a huge fan of Halo, but this is too much. Besides... It is all about multiplayer lately, and I prefer to play alone....
    What MS does right now is practically saying: "Here, Sony. We decided to hand you over the victory in next gen console wars. Enjoy".
