Do I detect a hint of sarcasm, Chris?
Truthfully, just a little.  I never honestly expected to have a bill (which has no actual chance of passing) to actually talk about privacy in the U.S.

Unlike up here, in Canada, where the XB One WILL have issues, due to our own slightly stricter Privacy Laws.

Actually, the US cares about privacy, it's just the focus has finally shifted from police and federal surveillance to corporate. It just doesn't seem like it because of Facebook and Twitter (Oh God, it's the end of days! Facebook is in the spellchecker, Facebook is in the spellchecker!).

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

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

They have confirmed that Blizzard's Titan is aiming for E sports.

Titanfall is mech combat but you can also play as a human and climb the mechs to destroy them.

Sound cool, but I get a distinct MMO or heavily-multiplayer feeling from it.

Possibly but that is fine by me.

Yeah, the single-player epic is kind of on the decline. :|

Well, this is unexpected:

Unexpected, but a step in the right direction. If they did that I would possibly give XBone a chance in the future, provided they had enough games I want that I can't get on PS4 or PC.

Yes. Some of us like super-epic single-player games.

Glad games come with both then.  I'd honestly stop gaming if multi-player games were taken off the shelves.

I don't think anyone's saying "no more multiplayer games ever".

I just don't like how the focus has shifted from making awesome singleplayer games to making a mediocre singleplayer and a mediocre multiplayer rather than focusing on awesome one or the other.

It's completely Multiplayer.  Because the XB One market is primarily focused on that sort of game play.

(Watched ALL of E3 coverage.)

Considering what the game is, I'm not surprised.  I'll be killing mechs on PC though.

It's apparently coming to PC too.  Despite having been claimed to be XB One exclusive during the presser.

Xbone exclusive means not on PS4. If Microsoft can do it they'll make a Games-for-Windows version. :\

Oh I know, found that out during the PS4 conference.

I'm with you. I am a multiplayer gamer. Actually MMORPG's are my favorite type of game by a long stretch - that's my type of multiplayer experience.

(Watched ALL of E3 coverage.)
If XBOne does have a lot of multiplayer experiences there is a chance I could still end up with them. However, their idea of multiplayer experience for the last several years has been FPS's - so to me that doesn't really count.


Side Note: Blizzard's Titan isn't aiming at E Sports exactly. It's just that they want the PvP within the game to be capable of being seen as an E Sport. They are chasing the mythical game balance and exciting combat experience but the game itself is definitely an MMORPG. Rumors are that it's a spin on real world history with the world of Azeroth as the world's ancient forgotten past. I'm hoping it'll have a Shadowrun feel to it. (Sorry I don't have the link, I read some leaked information on a couple websites a few weeks ago. I'm sure if it's Google'd it can be found.)

My favorite genre is standard RPG. Those are getting extremely hard to find outside of PSP type games. I can't think of anything since Star Ocean: The Last Hope that begins to compare.

And soon all RPGs will be MMOs.  Mwhahahaahahaha.

I quit playing games at that point. MMORPGs are like the NASCAR of the gaming world. A baseline, standardized game meant to appeal to the greatest common denominator that could and is meant to be enjoyed while highly inebriated. :(

So with a lot of games that are going to be released on both consoles, are some of you going to wait for the new console or get them on the current gen?
