The white one is pretty slick looking and it's pretty cool that Microsoft is giving it to their employees.

I don't usually like white consoles, but this time it looks better than the black

It took all of five minutes to make that post, if that. Copying and pasting isn't hard.

Outside of Halo, Microsoft doesn't have many long-lasting franchises like Sony does. They pay for exclusive DLC to make their console special but maybe my nostalgia for the "old" Xbox just blinds me from liking the "new" Xbox.

I still dug and dig Xbox, till the end!

I like PS also, but I didn't get my PS3 until late 2009, they had absolutely nothing but rubbish for the first several years of its life. I expect the PS4 to be the same, with the exception of the slew of indy titles that can run on a PS1.

I don't see that happening. I think the exact opposite of what happened with the PlayStation 3's bungled launch. Sony's first party efforts have improved leaps and bounds during the PlayStation 3 era and the PlayStation 4 will see titles from SCE Santa Monica, Naughty Dog, and Media Molecule be released within the early years of the PlayStation 4 on top of the Killzone and inFamous sequels. And the PlayStation 4 isn't going to have the development issues that the PlayStation 3 had that made multiplatform games superior on the Xbox 360 during the early years either.

I think that this might actually be the first generation where we might actually see a non-Nintendo console have one or two MUST HAVE first party titles right at launch with the Xbox One's Forza and Ryse and the PlayStation 4's Killzone and Knack. Really impressive IMO, especially since both consoles appear to have them. Usually, it's the third party titles that shine with the PlayStation and Xbox consoles at launch while the first party titles are rather lame and dull.

I hope it does not end up the shelves Nov. 8, as I won't have all of my money put back yet (Amazon is listing Christmas, and I hope it holds.)

They should release it on 11/12/13. I thought game companies were supposed to love dates like that.

Christmas was a placeholder date. They had Xmas pretty much straight after the XB1 was first announced & same for Playstation. As soon as the real date is announced any day now they'll change it.

Yeah, there's no way they ship after (or on) Black Friday. The question right now is how many units can they make and feel good about for a release date. The earlier they release the less units they have available, there are plenty of rumors that MS is cranking these out slower than they would like.

why in the heck would anyone believe that they would release a console on Christmas Day? Its a national holiday and all major retailers which would sell this are closed. Then there's the shipping services which will be closed as well so online retailers wouldnt be sending anything out. Maybe Walmart might be open but even then do you think MS would launch their console exclusively to one retail chain? Not to mention people are not going to stores to shop bc they are with their families or on vacation during that day. Think about it people.....

Yeah, I read that Christmas release date as just a placeholder to tell people it'll be around that date. Either before or after, but definitely not on it.

My first question, whenever I'm buying something in a color scheme, is if it comes in black. But, that white Xbox One looks pretty nice. Seems like a nice gift for Micosoft employees.

I was bothered by Mircosoft's decisions before and at E3. But, lately with all the backtracking...I'm kinda left confused by them. I'm not confident in their vision. I am confident in their online service, that it will run. I can't say the same about Sony, but I'm into their vision. And say what you will about what Micosoft's plans were before, they certainly appeared to be committed. But, now I don't know how confident they are in their plans, or if there even is an actual plan anymore. The Kinect thing, and how it's no longer required, just has me wanting to wait for a version that won't come with it and probably have a lower price because of it.

I mean, that has to be what will happen next. Right?

Maybe.
But I don't agree with that statement, not to its entirety anyway, but its all really just a matter of opinion anyway.

That said, my problem with the PS4 launch is their really aren't *any* interesting exclusives at or around launch *except* Infamous and Killzone, of which both of those I find only a mild interest in at best anyway.

Killzone is just okay to me because there are just so many other better shooters being released that look to be far superior, and Infamous, because the universe and world it takes place in has never been one I found very interesting to begin with. Just pretty generic.

So, my problem with PS4 is that there are *no* games I absolutely have to have at its launch, and further more that I am willing to spend 60$ on.

Couple that fact with nothing announced on the horizon except some phantoms and empty promises, of which knowing Sony, they have a reputation of either canceling games entirely, like The Last Guardian, or making announcements and than not releasing the game for four +years, like Killzone 2, which was announced at E3 2005, and not released until 2009.

I'm thankfully pleased that I never purchased a PS3 at its launch, Sony had so many games promised that were never released for a very long time, YEARS, Gran Turismo 5 being another one of them.

That said, I see no reason to buy a PS4 until Sony *Shows Me The Games*, and not empty hollow announcements, but on store shelves.
I'm not biting until I see tons of stuff on the retail shelves that I want.

So yeah, I'm gonna pass on the paper wight thank you.

In the meantime, MS is absolutely the safe bet for me, and an instant value for a day one purchase with upcoming hot exclusive titles in:
Forza 5, Quantum Break, Ryse: Son of Rome, Titanfall, Dead Rising 3, Fable Legends, Killer Instinct, Halo 5, Crimson Dragon, and Project Spark for starters.

As well as the very strong third party line up in:
The Witcher 3, Elder Scrolls Online, Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag, Metal Gear Solid 5, Dragon Age Inquisition, Battlefield 4, and COD Ghosts plus so many, many more.

So yeah, its really a no brainer.

Microsoft has the games beeyotches!
