Couple thoughts after mulling everything over for a few hours.

1st. I will get the Xbox (not sure about ps4 as I have never owned a sony product). Whether it supports XIM or not, I can get decent with a controller again if need be. All the features really impressed me and I'm not really worried about games from either console, there will be some great, most OK and some terrible ones just like with any platform. The sheer speed at which the thing was responding to voice and swipe commands was very impressive.

2nd. I 'love' all the "hardcore" gamers on other forums and comments on places like kotaku harping on the unveil. I think this forum knows better than most that most people generally suck at shooters (only competitive games that matter on xbox) yet they say crazy things like the games will suck or "the xbox one isn't made for gamers I'm switching to PC" (Irony Much)

Did you guys notice you cant sit the One on its side? This makes for some cumbersome wire routing since all the ports are in the back except one usb. I guess I'll have to invest in a monitor stand or something. Probably have to go back down to a single monitor just to make room on my already crowded desk. * sigh.

Once I found out that the Kinect is required for the system to work I immediately said no thanks. I'll get the PS4 instead and my 360 is just fine to me right now.

When I heard that the Kinect style interface was part of the new system I kinda went "Nah..." too, I'm happy with current gen anyway, plus Ghosts is coming to 360 & PS3.

Edit - I may get the PS4, I haven't had a Sony machine since PS2, the new Killzone looks good, Watch Dogs too!

Since they didn't mention RAM type I'd assume DDR3, yes?  Sounds like they're doing fairly well what Sony tried with the PS3 in regards to this thing being a media / entertainment hub.  Depending on OS requirements, with the better RAM and smaller OS footprints that would come with Sony being a true gaming only console at some level, I think the PS4 would be a marginally better gaming unit. 

In the end, both will run Netflix and most of the other stuff I care about. I have no desire to Skype from my TV, nor do I want Kinect looking into my house at every waking moment. 

Whose exclusives do you like better? That's what it really comes down to in the end...

 (You Will Be Able To Trade Xbox One Games Online, Microsoft Says)

Xbox One games will require a one-time activation code to use, but you'll still be able to trade and sell them online, Microsoft tells Kotaku —although we're not 100% clear on the details.

Speaking to us at the big event in Redmond today, Microsoft corporate vice president Phil Harrison clarified a couple of details about the system's used game policy and explained that there will be a solution for people who want to trade games with their friends.

Here's how the system works: when you buy an Xbox One game, you'll get a unique code that you enter when you install that game. You'll have to connect to the Internet in order to authorize that code, and the code can only be used once. Once you use it, that game will then be linked to your Xbox Live account. "It sits on your harddrive and you have permission to play that game as long as you’d like," Harrison said.

Other users on the console will be able to play that game as well, Harrison said. So you don't need to buy multiple games per family. "With the built-in parental controls of the system it is shared amog the users of the device," he said.

But what if you want to bring a game disc to a friend's house and play there? You'll have to pay a fee —and not just some sort of activation fee, but the actual price of that game—in order to use a game's code on a friend's account. Think of it like a new game, Harrison said.

"The bits that are on that disc, you can give it to your friend and they can install it on an Xbox One," he said. "They would then have to purchase the right to play that game through Xbox Live."

"They would be paying the same price we paid, or less?" we asked.

"Let’s assume it’s a new game, so the answer is yes, it will be the same price," Harrison said.

But that doesn't mean used games are dead. In fact, Harrison told us, you'll be able to sell your Xbox One games online.

"We will have a solution—we’re not talking about it today—for you to be able to trade your previously-played games online," Harrison said.

The Xbox exec wouldn't give further details on how this system will work, but we're assuming that once you're done with a game, you can trade the code online and it will be erased from your machine. But what will you get? Other games? Microsoft Points?

No matter how the final system works, it is not likely to please GameStop, the world's biggest buyer and seller of used video games, but it could be a tantalizing way to share games with your friends in the virtual space.

Update - Microsoft's Larry Hryb has issued the following clarification:

Another piece of clarification around playing games at a friend’s house –should you choose to play your game at your friend’s house, there is no fee to play that game while you are signed in to your profile.

What this means is that if you take a game to a friend's house and try to play the game on their system using their account, you'll need to pay. If you take it to their house and try to play it on their system using your account, you won't need to pay.

In other words: playing while you're there is free. If you want to lend it to them for a few days/weeks? They'll have to pay.

Watched some of the Xbox Reveal. Looks pretty good.

Anyone have a link to the PS4 reveal? They haven't revealed the actual console yet right? When does that happen?

I'm wondering the same thing.  It comes with the system, it's not an additional purchase.  Unless he's the "big brother is watching me, and I don't like it" type person.

Some things to think about:

- Xbox MUST be connected to the internet to play a new game.
- Xbox must connect to the internet at least ONCE EVERY 24 HOURS.
- No more letting your friends borrow your games, they will have to pay a license fee (full MSRP of the game)
- Must pay a license fee (full MSRP of the game) to play a used game.

If you are in a situation where you won't have internet access (in the army or something), there's pretty much no point in buying the new Xbox as it will simply be a paper weight.

Looks like I WON'T be getting the One, the new game thingy & having to be online is really off-putting.

And it's already known, whenever you FIRST play a new game, you have to be connected to internet in order to activate the game code and tie it to your Xbox Live account. Otherwise, no playing games for you.

The ALWAYS ON rumors were basically true.
