I wonder if we will just have to wait until E3 to get the final word on this, or if they will actually do an announcement before then. If they do Halo 5, or whatever they are calling it this year, I wonder what will be there big exclusive next year. With development barely starting on Gears, I wouldn't expect to see it until 2016.

Xbox One Named a 2014 “Product of the Year” Winner
Quote:
The votes are in and Xbox One has been chosen as a winner of the 2014 “Product of the Year” award in the home entertainment category!

“Product of the Year” is the world’s largest consumer-voted award for product innovation and we’re excited that Xbox One was recognized as the all-in-one entertainment system that gives you instant access to TV, games, music, movies, sports and apps.

Albert Penello, director of product planning at Microsoft, had a chance to speak with Parade magazine about the win and how launching a new iteration of Xbox meant rethinking the device entirely to create a multipurpose entertainment hub for the whole family. You can check out the full cover story, which was distributed nationwide yesterday, here.

More than 45,000 people were surveyed by TNS and we’re thrilled to be among top consumer packaged goods products receiving this honor. For a full list of the other winners, click here to view the AdWeek exclusive.

The original Halo on Xbox was a very good game, perhaps ahead of its time. Good dialogue, direction and pacing and the semi-sandbox environment with various vehicles made for a pretty crazy game in 2001. And Halo 2 set the bar for multiplayer matchmaking. But I think as a studio Bungie has failed to innovate much since then. We'll see how they do in their next IP.

Thanks for the help guys.
I like that MS fessed up to the short falls they are encountering. Admitting to your mistakes is rarely seen in todays business world. I hope they put a halt to this playmium BS. Have any of you just stopped using the One because of these problems?
I think im going to purchase one this week so I am glad to hear about the new updates are coming in a few weeks.

I thought that the original Halo: CE was a good game held down by a horribly repetitive center (fight your way across an open field then down some stairs past an ambush then through a circular passage around a weird glassed-in middle area then up the stairs at the other end into an open field, rinse, repeat). The story was excellent (if you haven't read the novels, check them out, particularly the Eric Nylund ones) and the game was a lot of fun. Halo 2 was just as good or better, but I found Halo 3 to be oddly boring; I'm not sure that I finished it. Never played ODST and didn't finish Reach; haven't played Halo 4.

I played the earlier versions. I think what might've prolonged the interest was that there aren't a lot of great co-op games w/ replay value. I always enjoyed the campaigns w/ friends.

Yeah, it's like giving a saltine to someone dying of starvation. He'd swear up and down saltines are the best crackers in the world, and they'll always hold a special place in his heart.

The Destiny comment was more Bungie also focusing on online only multiplayer and that being a next gen experience.

for the record, Halo was the 2nd game I enjoyed from OG XBOX (with Rainbow Six 3 being the first) but I found out quickly after Halo 3 multiplayer that I'm not a Halo guy and no new version will change that. Though here's to hoping that I am proven wrong sooner than later.
What is interesting I like Halo, but I honestly could never get into the MP part of the game. I liked the Co-Op mods it did and playing with friends, but MP for that series just fell short which I know Bungie did a good job for MP on certain aspects. For me Halo shined in the SP and the story line it did. I can never get enough of that. Honestly between Halo and the first the Gears of War games I was truly spoiled last gen with the sci fi shooter story lines biggrin.gif

Depends on which side you are looking at. It will be interesting to see if he tries to make that Division a separate entity under the MS umbrella or not. Time will tell how well this works out.

Yeah, I have to admit that my buyers remorse with this puppy is pretty big right now. Not that I wouldn't eventually need to have an Xbox One, but I really had no business buying one at launch. I think it was a foolish need to keep my Microsoft streak alive, of buying all their consoles on launch day. I keep hearing about people scoring XB1's on Craigslist for dirt cheap prices. It kinda bothers me to know that something that I just recently paid about $520 for, our the door, might not even be worth $400.

Yep, I said it. I'm not sure I could get $400 for my used XB1 on the open market. The reason I say this, is that a guy that I sold my copy of Forza 5 and Dead Rising 3 to, well, he had just bought a XB1 that same day, on Craigslist for $400. It was still brand new, factory sealed, and it included a copy of Ghosts, brand new, factory sealed. He got all that for $400, so I guess my used XB1 that doesn't come with a game isn't even worth $400. Talk about depreciation.

Now, look, I know that everything is relative, and that prices and values of items can fluctuate wildy, but this is the fastest I've ever seen a brand new home console have to start discounting itself, and providing special incentives to get people to buy it. Seriously... I'm trying to think back to when the quickest it was that somebody started discounting their newly released system, or quickly started packing in games, when it originally didn't come with a game. I think it might have been the Panasonic 3DO. It launched in October of 1993 for $699.99 or something crazy like that, and I think it dropped to like $499.99 in May of 1994. Something like that. That was probably the quickest drop I've seen from any major home console... up until now. I could be mistaken though. If anybody knows of a home console that was discounted in the first 90 days, let me know. I don't think I've seen this before. It's kinda weird.

Yea I think I posted in here before but kept it to just I'm really annoyed. But jesus soooo many things are annoying, least of all its graphical power or lack of I should say. It's been EIGHT YEARS M$, and this is the best you could do tech wise.

Well now you ALL know why all the mentioned pre launch was TV TV TV TV TV TV TV TV TV TV TV. Because their console isn't worth a ****. Frankly all it is is what the 360 was promised to be all along. HD games, which at first all were required to be at least 720p, then they waved that totally last few years. I guess I'm damn glad I've got a pretty damn nice gaming/HTPC and no it's not all about graphics and what not, but they screwed soo much else up about it. I'm sure you all talked about it in here before, upload messing with videos is a complete god damn mess, it locks up , freezes , crashes constantly, lags to all hell when it is working. Streaming game content...yea where's that at...Friends list is butchered unusable mess of crap. Chat yea right with who, invites...man the list just goes on and on and on. Tiny ass hard drive for something that takes 30+ gig games and 10 gig demo's and 12 gig patches...seriously ....Every single damn aspect of this thing is a complete broken half assed joke.

BUT it's like Anthony1 just said, it's here and we're stuck with it so, I don't own a single game for it that's one reason im really pissed they're giving away what's to be THE game for it. And yea the 3DO is probably the console that was discounted like you said and that's probably a fairly accurate time frame. 3 months and free $60 game for those who jump in, meanwhile nothing for the supporters who kept this dead beat of a system alive.

And ps4 is no prize either. It has zero games worth crap honestly. LEast none you can't play somewhere else. Least they do have a decent damn marketplace with stuff actually in it. Meaning not the games that are $40 everywhere else not for $60 like M$. Yea they discounted game this week, yea because they are getting killed DAILY in the press. If this continues every single time a game gets released on both systems xbox one is doomed. It can't recover from that kind of bad press month after month.

This is NOT what I've been waiting for 8 years for I can tell you that much.

I honestly expected 1080p, with all features of latest DX11 with PhysX being able to be used to fullest. In the years many years it's been around it's time to piss or get off the pot. Not 720p at 30 fps barely lighting increase....well I'll just quit I'm not at a loss for words but that's it for now.

biggrin.gif What if you gave an rant & nobody gave a sh@t? lmao.......DAILY..........lmao Is that "Johnny fat loser in mommy's basement" on youtube at it again?

From a marketing end including TitanFall makes sense, could very well be the "Halo" for the XBox One. Has a ton of hype & will move consoles = will it have the same impact as Halo? Unknown but I can see why MS is putting in the $$$. Halo, GOW, & now TitanFall = a pretty solid foundation.

It's just my opinion & it's worth exactly what you paid for it.

I think it might have been the Panasonic 3DO. It launched in October of 1993 for $699.99 or something crazy like that, and I think it dropped to like $499.99 in May of 1994. Something like that. That was probably the quickest drop I've seen from any major home console... up until now. I could be mistaken though. If anybody knows of a home console that was discounted in the first 90 days, let me know. I don't think I've seen this before. It's kinda weird.

I think thats the 3rd time I have read you mention this Craiglist deal your friend got. There are deals like this on tons of electronics and it is usually because the seller needs cash quick. Not sure how or why you would base your remorse on this one deal. In my opinion you cannot value the price of a used electronic through CL or any other buy/sell site because you don't know the reason for the sale. If you have remorse....sell it now and move on.

It kinda bothers me to know that something that I just recently paid about $520 for, our the door, might not even be worth $400.

Yep, I said it. I'm not sure I could get $400 for my used XB1 on the open market. The reason I say this, is that a guy that I sold my copy of Forza 5 and Dead Rising 3 to, well, he had just bought a XB1 that same day, on Craigslist for $400. It was still brand new, factory sealed, and it included a copy of Ghosts, brand new, factory sealed. He got all that for $400, so I guess my used XB1 that doesn't come with a game isn't even worth $400. Talk about depreciation.

Now, look, I know that everything is relative, and that prices and values of items can fluctuate wildy, but this is the fastest I've ever seen a brand new home console have to start discounting itself, and providing special incentives to get people to buy it.

Since when do we look at Craigslist as a indicator of discounting. I think I will leave that to the manufacturer or retailer selling the items new. I understand you are disappointed in your purchase but it really seems like you are trying to discount the xbox one a little too much. I mean I could find many items on craigslist selling below retail cost which speak as much about the person selling them as the consumers demand. This launch has been very similar to the previous console launches waiting for updates and waiting for the next gen games to come.

Unless I'm missing something, the only way to invite your friends is to post a thread on the preview forums (which I did several days ago). I don't believe any of my friends have received invitations, and I have my doubts that someone at MS is reading through hundreds of those threads. It's going to be rather difficult for me to test the new party chat if none of my friends are in the beta. It would have made more sense for them to give out a handful of registration codes to the beta participants that they could pass on to a few of their friends.

A friend of mine just got an invite this morning so I think it is working. I will have to check with the other 2 friends I listed in the thread.

I'm curious, did you buy the console for Titanfall?
