Tuesday Chat, October 22: One Month until Xbox One


It's exactly one month until the arrival of Xbox One. Games such as Forza 5, Ryse, Dead Rising 3 and Crimson Dragon will all arrive exclusively to the console, along with popular and established titles such as FIFA, NBA, NFL, Assassin's Creed, Battlefield and Call of Duty.

So have you pre-ordered an Xbox One? If so, what games have you ordered with the system and what about accessories? Have you bought any extra controllers, a play and charge kit or a headset. Are you buying a new TV in preparation?

Let's Chat!

I swapped my standard order for the Xbox One Day One Edition including Fifa 14 (might sell it) along with Battlefield 4 and a £15 gift card. I also preordered Dead Rising 3 and a play and charge kit. The new Turtlebeach headsets have been delayed until 2014 along with the headset adapter so I will have to wait until then to use my current headset. I also have £125 credit on my Xbox Live account which I will use to purchase 2 more games. These will most likely be Ryse and CoD: Ghosts but we'll see. I'm not sure if it allowed on here but is anyone willing to trade their digital code of Forza 5 for my digital code of Fifa 14? If this isn't allowed please disregard it.

Have the one that comes with FIFA preordered alongside Battlefield, Dead Rising, Ryse and Forza have enough points saved to get Forza for nothing. Have a play and charge kit ordered was thinking of getting the turtle beach headset but if it has been delayed then thats answered that question. Then only a week after that for my PS4 mega bundle.

I won't be getting an Xbox One on launch. Will wait for a price drop or if I'm impatient will get one next year. Was very happy last night when I got my Mega Bundle swap offer which I took. Now just the long wait till release date.

Meh, will get one when there's enough games to be worth it, maybe in a year or so.

I don't see the point in buying a X1 or PS4 on launch (or any console for that matter)

I did think getting consoles at launch was not worth it, but for once the Xbox ONE has plenty of launch titles. Usually a console at launch have about one you really want then others look OK and get just to have more games for the console but probably would not get (straight away) if already got loads of games for the console, but this time there are plenty of games at launch on Xbox ONE. Also with the bonus free game of Forza which I would have bought separate, it seals the deal, as I doubt buying the console plus Forza separately later will drop to be the same price or cheaper for quite a while . I was going to cancel the preorder if it was FIFA, as I did not want the game, and still had to buy another game to make the purchase worthwhile, and could not be bothered to sell the code it if it was possible. The other games I will be getting, as soon as have enough money after console, will be Ryse, Dead Rising 3, Crimson Dragon, Killer Instinct, maybe Assassins Creed 4, would have been Watch Dogs, and maybe Need For Speed Rivals (although may not to boycott it in protest for lack of Wii U version).

The xbox one isn't for me, the 360 was my primary console this gen but they showed what they thought of their customers when they announced the one, of all the exclusives they have only dead rising interests me, but Zombie games are a dime a dozen these days, and the PS4 will have 'every bodies gone to rapture' which I think is going to be some kind of survival game, and I've yet to see a xbox one game that even has any color apart from black white brown and a dash of red. I get the feeling the xbox is very targeted towards what I can only describe as the 'dude-brah' crowd, while sony seem to be going for a more broad approach, and I play a lot o different games so the PS4 is kind of a no brainer to me. Of course the route of either console is pure guess work on both ides right now, for all I know they could both be littered with random apps a year from now.

When MS announced DRM I was dead against it and wanted to get PS4, but the PS4 just did not have anything, and the Xbox ONE brought out a tonne of games - no one can deny its strong launch line up. Right now the PS4 does not interest me in the slightest, but it does of what they say will be coming for it, and when it does I will get it. The PS4 has potential to better xbox ONE, but Xbox ONE is better than PS4 in reality within this year, but Sony has a long history of offering a moon on a stick and in the end only offer up the stick (Where was the HDD for PS2 in EU? Nowhere Sony allowed Linux to be installed on PS3 and then pulled it with an update). Microsoft initially offer up a stick, and in the end offer up a moon on a stick.
superniceguy 9 months ago
There are a few off the top of my head for the xbox one that are coming out at launch that are not all dull browns they are crimson dragon, forza, zoo tycoon. Also give it a year and people will forget about the whole DRM thing. Is that "every bodies gone to rapture" the one being made by the same people that made Dear Esther? Didn't quite see the point of that game.
Zombieflamingo 9 months ago
XBOXs line-up is nothing to me. Forza is a good game, I'd probably get DR3 if I had one and that is that, which is the same amount of games i@d be getting on PS4. Then you have Infamous and DriveClub in 6 months. So you're moon analogy doesn't work.
DynamiteWhyte 9 months ago
Also it would have to be a really big stick.
Zombieflamingo 9 months ago
Moon analogy does work - Microsoft announced DRM / always ON / Kinect required / indie developers being snubbed, which was the stick - all now reversed, then they give away free FIFA or Forza, So now you get moon on a stick. Drive club was being released for launch, and the PS4 was going to get a Watch Dogs bundle, which are moon on a stick, now both games delayed, so now only get the stick.
superniceguy 9 months ago
So XBOX does awful, and just fixes these things to get on par with Sony, so they know have the moon. But Sony lose 1 exclusive game, in DriveClub, for 6 months, and it is now an awful console again? You need to just stop commenting about Sony as you're Microsoft bias shines through.
DynamiteWhyte 9 months ago
That tears it, I'm never getting a Xbox one where the hell am I supposed to put a moon?
iMerle iDixon 9 months ago
MERLE YEAH EXACTLY, I GOT MY 360 AROUND THE SAME TIME AS MY PS3 BUT AFTER IT BREAKING 4 TIMES I REFUSE TO BUY THE ONE AT LAUNCH, AND ALL OF MY FRIENDS WHO WERE ONCE XBOX FANS ARE GOING TO THE PS4 BECAUSE THEY ASWELL AS I WERE ALL DISGUSTED AT MICROSOFTS PRACTICES IN THERE DRM POLICIES. THE ONLY GAME THAT INTERESTS ME IS DEAD RISING 3. ANYWAY I WON'T CARE AND WILL HAVE LESS REASON TO GET ONE BECAUSE RATCHET AND CLANK: INTO THE FREAKING NEXUS COMES OUT ON THE SAME DAY XBOX ONE LAUNCHES, MEANING IT WAS PUSHED BACK TO BE POLISHED AND IT GIVES ME ONE WHOLE WEEK TO PLAY THROUGH IT MANY TIMES BEFORE THE PS4 LAUNCHES. ALSO MICROSOFT HAVE NO INCOMPETENT PLATFORMERS LIKE RATCHET AND CLANK, JAK AND DAXTER OR KNACK.
Light Heaven 9 months ago
That's actually good news LightEco. I never knew it was just a week before. I'm going to blast out Nexus so hard. Love the Ratchet games.
DynamiteWhyte 9 months ago
'NO INCOMPETENT PLATFORMERS LIKE RATCHET AND CLANK, JAK AND DAXTER OR KNACK' I'm confused why are they incompetent games?
iMerle iDixon 9 months ago
It means MICROSOFT never had a competent platformer series that's as quality like the Ratchet and Clank, Jak and Daxter, Sly Cooper and the Knack trilogies.
Light Heaven 9 months ago
Its a shame as well there are not many more platformers for the xbox as I really enjoyed Kameo shame it never got a sequel. Also glad you found your caps lock button.

PS4 is not an awful console, but the loss of Watch Dogs and its exclusive PS4 content has made me cancel the preorder (unless the bundle is delayed until Spring, still waiting on news, but it seems that the bundle is cancelled altogether) No point getting a console just for the console. PS4 or any console is useless without a game. Sony are the ones that are awfull, they promise this this and this and that and those plus this and this and that, and only in the end ever deliver this and this!! Sony were the ones who first announced blocking 2nd hand games and using DRM, and crank the price up of the console to make it seem that they are adding the eye as well. Then they do neither. It is not just one game that I am on about, in Drive Club, Gran Turismo 5 was delayed over year when it was about to be released in 1 or 2 weeks the previous year, and The Last Guardian has still not surfaced. Also why go to the trouble of getting a bundle going without making sure that the game will be released at launch? Sony have been nothing but full of disappointment, there is no bias, just the truth
superniceguy 9 months ago
Sony haven't been able to deliver on DriveClub or Watch Dogs due to the developers not having finished the games. Now, how is that Sonys fault? That's like saying it is Microsofts fault when people can't play XBOX Live due to Skys/Virgins internet going offline. Sony did not announce anything about blocking 2nd hand games and DRM. You're saying Sony are screwing up because they kept the price on their console down and aren't blocking 2nd hand games? You're biased, now just stop going on about them, it's embarassing.

I can see where Tony is coming from with the whole watchdogs thing after they did hype it up with the exclusive bundle but the delaying of a third party title is not something they really control though. Driveclub is different though with it being an exclusive and is it not being developed by one of their studios? Things get delayed it happens but after hyping certain things up they really should do what they said. It would be the same if microsoft delayed Forza which comes in certain bundles. Can never remember seeing that sony said they were going to do DRM was in not just speculated that they were. (personally I think they were but changed there mind after the xbox backlash)
Zombieflamingo 9 months ago
@Zombie: Yeah I loved Kameo but instead of Kameo 2 Rare decided to make Banjo Kanzooie Nuts And Bolts which was good but then Rare abandoned them. Also Artoon should have made a Blinx 3 for the 360 but never happened there just isn't enough platformers on Xbox and ha yeah I had it on by mistake.
Light Heaven 9 months ago
Sony has not many exclusives being released at launch, it can not afford to lose Drive Club as well. Sony chose Watch Dogs for the bundle, to be released for launch, they should have chosen a game that was guaranteed, one they knew was ready for launch. This is where it showed that Sony was going to block used games: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-01-03-sony-patents-tech-to-block-use-of-second-hand-games At that stage MS never mentioned anything about DRM or blocking used game, not even as a patent- it was all rumour
superniceguy 9 months ago
If patents meant anything, Apple Iphone would be a completely different phone to what it is now. It means nothing. And they barely hyped the Watch Dogs bundle. The bundle that was hyped was the Killzone Megabundle. Which, for what it is worth, seems to be doing quite well.
DynamiteWhyte 9 months ago
Dynamite yeah they delayed it to polish it. Ratchet is going to be facing some stiff competition in this country against the Xbox One launch games, COD and Battlefield but the pre-orders are doing well as it's half the price than most games and Ratchet is a well known popular IP for Sony, so it should pull through.
Light Heaven 9 months ago
There are a fair few platformers on the XBLA not so many 3D ones though i have heard the likes of the Maw are good just not tried them. Did they not go on about the watchdogs bundle and stuff for quite a while when they were talking about making a film for it as well. Granted I have not really followed much of the actual news just going from the amount I keep reading about it.
Zombieflamingo 9 months ago
Tony the Watch Dogs bundle doesn't really matter as Sony were pushing the Killzone: Shadow Fall bundle and had the most pre-orders only behind COD and Battlefield.
Light Heaven 9 months ago
Sony were the ones that made blocking 2nd hand games an official reality first, Sony still went there. Microsoft never officially touched the subject until the console was announced. The only difference between the two, was that Sony backed off the idea, whereas MS did not, and then backed off the idea, but they BOTH still had ideas to do DRM and block 2nd hand games.
superniceguy 9 months ago
The watch Dogs bundle mattered to me, and yet another disappointment to me (and I am sure others too). I was willing to get the PS4 just for Watch Dogs, now there is no point.
superniceguy 9 months ago
I didn't really bother about the Arcade games even PSN games, mainly ones that are part of a series or new IP. Rare should have done a follow up to Banjo Kazooie on the 360, loved that game don't know what Rare is doing now.
Light Heaven 9 months ago
Why Watch Dogs though? It's not a PS4 exclusive or anything, you can get it on Xbox One only difference is the bonus exclusive content but you are still getting majority of the package. Yeah it's a bit disappointing but it's not an exclusive and it was delayed on all other platforms anyway.

I give up. It's like banging your face off a door. I always get this feeling with Tony, mind.
DynamiteWhyte 9 months ago
So what is happening with the Watchdogs Bundle? a mate of mine wants to change his Watchdogs to AC IV, he has the bundle which has Watchdogs and Fifa separately, so wouldn't it be easy to replace his watchdogs with AC IV? He doesn't any of the other Bundles, I'm a bit worried as I coaxed him into going for the Bundles but now he is worried because he doesn't want Killzone Bundles.

I am not a Xbox ONE fanboy, and I found the comment about Xbox being targeted to "dude/brah" crowd insulting when I am not like that. If PS4 was getting Dead Rising 3, Ryse, Crimson Dragon, Sunset Overdrive, D4, Quantum Break, Project Spark etc then I would get a PS4. Neither Killzone nor inFamous rocks my boat, no games rock my boat on PS4 yet. Maybe next year PS4 will start to have to more games I like and Xbox ONE drops off, then PS4 will be my main console and Xbox ONE will be for exclusives only. Also I do know about games which is why I plan on having both consoles, but maybe I don't know about games as if I did I would not buy a PS4! I always gets the feeling of banging my head against a brick wall too, plus being bullied when come on here. My rule of the internet - criticise the games and stuff, but DO NOT criticise or judge other people.
superniceguy 9 months ago
You say 'don't criticise or judge other people' yet you say that people who do know about games would not buy a PS4. Ok then.
DynamiteWhyte 9 months ago
heh, people bitching about DRM is hilarious, you all fell into the crap hype and did'nt actually look at what benfits it brings. also, 2nd hand games worked anyways... i'd have loved to see competitively priced digital downloads. im talking steam here. no bias here, i have gone with the xbox one on pure FACT. i'm out for the best games, not hyped games, not fancy looking games. And having played a few launch titles on both XB1 and PS4, the XB1's games just play so much better (and if graphics really matter that much to you, theres no real discernible difference.)
