500 is expected... ps4 prolly gon be the same price if not more

'No used games' is a rumor, and if the president of Gamestop is endorsing
the system i highly doubt the system doesnt play used games

Always online- like thurrot said... we dont know what that means yet.

"Built in kinect so people can spy on you"

...really dawg?

u betta get u a wii U then PS4 comes wit a camera too

Of course Gamestop is going to endorse it. They stand to make a hell of a lot of money off selling it.

There are MAJOR indications that the console will be "always online". It is pretty much a done deal. Now with a console "always online", that is the premise of using the technology to ONLY play new games and omit used ones UNLESS you repurchase an online ID much like the newer FPS games that require a unique online code for online play.

Look at the madness that happened with the new SimCity. The game is virtually unhackable BECAUSE a connection to EA is always required. Even if you were to play "offline" you still have to connect to the EA servers.

Oh and yes, the indication that Kinect is spying on people is nothing new.

I would a.ssume old one. I highly doubt they would offer a $99 720 around launch. Doesn't make much sense.
Woud it require one to have microsoft live?

I want a xbox but don't want live right away or want to be locked into a two year deal.

i used to work for the company. they hardly make anything off retail
sales of new items, Gamestop makes the bulk of its profits from the sale
of used Games/Systems/Accessories. Why u think these muhfu*kas offer
u $15 store credit $9 cash, n then sell the game for $55.


buy low sell extra high my guy. unless the retailer has negotiated
a HUGE discount for itself when buying systems they aint makin enough
selling only new products highly doubt the President of GS would
endorse it if that was the case cuz that n*gga business would go down
the tubes.

so u jus gon skip over the fact that Ps4 is coming with a quote "kinect-style camera"

Comcast uses a third party to install the service in your home or apartment.

Quality varies...

Not to mention their prices.
I was a contracter for time Warner in Cleveland I did A1 jobs from the ground up and we did better work than the fu*kers that actually worked for the company.

500 is a lot? I remember when I paid 600 pounds for my PS3 that's nearly 1100 Dollars!

Plus I paid 660 dollars for my iphone 5 and its just a phone how are people acting like this over a 500 price tag? bloody hell

I can't deny that PC's are losing market share, but when the majority of major businesses in America use your operating system and office suite software, you're ok.

As with others, I'm not buying it if I have to be online to use it. I don't have to be online to use my computer even though it would be almost useless without it, but they don't require it.

I don't think $500 is that big of deal, especially in this age of credit cards. I spend that on two pair of shoes in 2 weeks, but the xbox would need to virtually take the place of something I already use. If I ever get one, I'll definitely be late to the party. Perhaps a year late or so.

Honestly, as long as M$ isnt dumb enough to actually make internet a key component of playing. by that i mean, if i dont have internet, I cant play the game, then i dont care too much. But if and whe it comes out they ARE doing this.....beginning of the end.

Ok Ok OK Ok i understand they trynna cut off the pirates
BUT must be connected at all times, and if not you can't use it..IS A fu*k'N JOKE

THATS WHY THEY HAVE TO BRING OUT THE 99 DOLLAR xbox360 for those families who doens't have internet like that.

but with all that said 500 ..thats understandable. but if i have to pay for xbox live ..i'm not fu*king with it

so 500 for the console + $$ cost of internet + $$ xbox live + 70 GAMES + 50 CONTROLLERS = YEA THE fu*k RIGHT

in 2013 I just don't understand any system not playing previous version games. And not sure what the fu*k they getting at with that online all the time sh*t, my internet randomly cuts off from time to time. I get on the game more on those fu*ked up internet days, what I'm gonna do if I can't game? I gotta hear more about that, can't be that stupid. The price ain't so bad for me though. Sounds like they fu*king up with this new xbox, man.

So they can re-sell you the old games...

To stop piracy...

$500 seems fair to me, easy day 1 purchase. The always on feature doesnt seem that big of a deal either...

M$ still not addressing this "rumor" that was practically confirmed by Orth.

Add another month and a half of this negative speculation festering among the masses before their event only confirms it to be true.

Not good.
