Yes, I'm an Xbox fan.
Yes, but only if there's good games
Maybe...will decide at a later time
No, I just don't like Xbox.
No, I don't like the idea of requiring 100%stable Internet

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.
the way adam orth behaved on twitter was the final nail in the coffin for me.
he is a wanker and should be fired asap
Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.
I am not a console type person but was going to get one when the next-gens come out....I think I'll stick with PC gaming.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Looks like PS4 has easily won the next console wars before its even begun :P
Long Live Dizzy - May his boxing gloves never shrink in the wash
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".
