Amazon decided to end the poll early. Final results Here

Thanks for the update. That is hilarious. I'm not even really a PS4 supporter but I take a perverse pleasure in watching an arrogant company like MS get so utterly destroyed publicly.  I think once more average consumers realize what's going on between the two consoles it's only going to get worse for Microsoft.

Honestly my only gripe about the xbone is the lack of backwards compatibility, considering that I rarely loan or sell games, am always online anyways, and I don't buy into all of the 'spying' hype. I don't consider myself a fanboy either; I'll probably look into a ps4 first then consider snagging the xbone after a price drop or a tempting bundle.

I don't hold that one against Microsoft. Backwards compatibility is just can't keep around.

I hold it the hell against them. :|
I think they just want to push new hardware, I doubt it's a difficult thing to do, or at least sell as an addon program or something.

Sorry Inkidu.. I think that backwards incompatibility is the LEAST of their sins. Honestly.. I mean.. it's not that high on list when you got what.. 2 or three types of censorship, outright blackmail to their customer base and the myriad of crimes they are committing with the Kinect.

Actually, those are only theoretical at the point as it's not been released. This one's real! D:<

I dunno.. you don't come up with that many atrocities and expect to come out of things like that without trying them.

Yeah.. thanks to the Patriot act (and associated laws and such) don't think that reflects true.

Too true. Then again, I am one of the paranoid ones that 'does' have tape over the camera on my PC.

Really the biggest downer for me and the XBone is the internet connection issue. Broken modem = no PC, compounded by no games to distract me from no PC.

You don't know how often I've heard 'It's for the greater good' from folks when I told them about what was going on. It's depressing..

but back to the Xbox One.. IF I get one .. I'm putting a box over my Kinect when I'm not playing.

I stand with Microsoft and the Xbox One.

Why? Because I love my 360, and I want to support a company that I like. Plus, family circle, multi-tasking, playing games without discs, live streaming, Skype, and let's not forget TITANFAAAAAALLLL!

Titanfall on the PC will look so much better.

Because everything on PC will be better.  And that's not me being sarcastic.  Most people who have gaming PCs already have hardware that's better than the new consoles could ever hope to get.

Also, apropos of nothing:

Is that a Blizzard property because they were codenaming something Titan or Project Titan. :\

Just wondering, so that means youre not worried at all then about the privacy issues of the kinect (also including they have patents to spy on you), or the always online thing etc?

No.  Titan is something else entirely, but I think it is vaporware....

Titanfall is actually being developed by Respawn Entertainment, two guys who helped the development of CoD.

Eh, it's probably multiplayer based or an MMO.

Also, all Blizzard projects are vaporware until they get greedy enough. :\
