All of the used game stuff is conjecture at this point, and even if some reps said one thing, others said another, and the reality is that no one that's talking really knows a @#$% thing.

E3 is coming soon, and a lot of questions will be answered then.  Believe me, Microsoft pulled a ton of punches yesterday.  They are saving the haymakers for E3.

On a side note, I am still thoroughly excited for Nintendo's 1st party title announcements.  I'm however much more excited  to stand in line in the freezing cold with my mini propane heater to buy an Xbox One.

Well said, and i can't wait to see what the xbox one can do on the gaming side of things..
But as of now? for communications player to player i can't see how it would be anything but just another re iteration of onlive..

But people who don't have access to an internet connection should be told to go F themselves?
In a much more polite manner, but yes, that is what they should be told.  Since when is it mandatory that Xbox is accessible to everybody that wants one?  If you don't have internet, don't buy an Xbox...  it's that simple.

The sense of entitlement the gaming "community" has is ridiculous.

People won't... that's my point. Xbox will lose plenty of sales from their decision to be online only alone.

Sony has already stated they won't be so "anti-consumer".

They've actually danced around that topic, saying yes you can play used games and later saying that they can't go into detail at the moment. I'd wait until E3 before throwing MS under the bus, I wouldn't be surprised if this was an initiative by the publishers for both platforms.

If it's close I will go with MS because I believe they are a better company.

IF PS4 has GDD5 and XBOX has GDDR3 and PS4 allows used game sales while XBOX ruins that, I will get a PS4 for sure.


I pretty much buy all of my games used on console - except for the new COD's.

And if MS doesn't go with GDDR5 they are morons.

Do you know the difference between gddr3 and gddr5? There are tradeoffs and both have pros and cons

Mind explaining? Everything I read said that GDDR5 offers major advantages.

I haven't heavily researched it but from what I've read gddr3 is faster but has less bandwidth than gddr5. Maybe gddr3 made more sense in MS's design.

Various sites I'm finding on Google are stating that GDDR3 is pretty much the same speed as GDDR5 but 5 has more bandwidth.

Edit:
Here is a site that tries to show the difference, although it is from back in 2012 so some info may be outdated. Just thought I'd put it here.

So why does MS feel not meeting PS4's tech is necessary?
