    Not really feeling this always on crap. I feel bad for people in the boonies that have intermittent inet connections. And this $299 model that requires 2 years of xbl + an additional $10 a month crap, REALLY? So basically lets do the math.

    $299 + 120 = 419, now lets say you have the 720 for seven or eight years that's an additional $120 a year x 7 which is 840. That's $1259 just for the system and the 2 years of xbl gold. Now factor in the additional $300 for the remaining 5 years of xbl.

    Grand total: $1600 for the moneybox 720. Talk about a company that has lost its way.

    I agree. Thats way to much of an upkeep for a gaming console. Their treating it like a phone plan. And all that $$$ isnt even including the over priced games that keep getting more expensive as the generations go up. I remember paying $30 for newly released ps1 games. I wouldnt be surprised if you couldn't even play games offline anymore. Im really starting to get tired of all the effort to kill piracy. They are just ruining the fun level of games for me. I loved the old days where all you had to worry about was if the disk was scratched and if you needed another memory card. In my opinion consoles will become too expensive for the average joe and people will move on to pc or mobile gaming( which I think has come a long way.)

    The sad thing is it's proven that piracy is somewhat of a good thing. Contrary to what devs say, piracy will help determine whether or not someone will buy a game. I pirate **** all the time, if I like the game I buy it.... only one game I didn't pirate and wish to God, that I had... and that is Mass Effect 3.

    Blah...I didn't think I could be any less enthused about the 720. The more I hear the less I care. Right about now, I'm feeling very comfortable with my PC and Wii U. At least the Wii U gives you choice of whether or not you want it updating and whatnot while it's powered down. These sound like a bunch of sh!t. $ony and Mióro$oft are taking their platforms right where I feared they would if they were backed by the power of enough greed and fanboyism. It's nice to see I'm not the only one who feels this way.

    So far I am liking the idea of a PC/PS4 combo.

    For the price of one PS4 or Xb0x 720 = You can build two high-end rigs that will beat the **** out of this two probably.

    It's an engine battle today with next-gen consoles and pc gaming.
    Yesterday (so to speak) was the exclusives to consoles and PC gamers have to wait 3 or 4 months until some decent game got released.
    Always consoles have/had top priority when some new game cames out.
    I won't name franchises nor some game specific but you get what i mean.

    Now the issue is not about which one deliver first. If to consoles or PC gaming some ****ty ported version of the game, it's about which engine (next-gen) games devs will use and if it works well or it's well optimized for PC.

    You don't need to use your third eye to understand this and how the this whole situation is seriously ****ed up.

    Sony as MS will use any dirty trick to "label" this next-gen products as a console when it's a high-end with the lifespan of butterfly if they don't give the choice to end user to upgrade their consoles = GPU/RAM/HDD.

    $299 + $120 (2 years of live) + $240 (the mentioned $10 a month) = OUCH please use lube the next time you rape me.

    The reason I say I think it may be wrong is that MS might be doing the same thing with the next xbox that they are doing with the current Xbox 360s and that is a price cut if you subscribe to 2 years of live at $10 a month. If that is the case then that makes the price $539...... ok now that I have done the math I think they may try to pull the bs exactly like you have it written. So the $299 price tag ends up costing $659 and you are locked into a contract with a box MS can disable for non payment and breach of contract. They are already disabling boxes for people that get the $99 360 and dont stick to the terms of their rape.

    I use live but I will not be falling for that crap. I think I will just pay my $500 up front LOL if I were to get one of these.

    Live used to be cool before I had to view ads on a paid service. Every app has ads and the dashboard is full of them. PSN has less ads and it remains free (for now)

    This next gen is really starting to make me sad and I am really starting to pat myself on the back for diving into PC gaming when I did

    Nothing here making me think wow...except illumiroom, which is just a gimmick any console/pc will have when its cloned

    I'm thinking more and more to just get a decent PC (used to be a huge PC gamer at uni), and forget this generation of console$.

    Note: you wrote always-on bullet point twice in the main article :P
