How does that work? Is this fitness thing a subscription service rather than a one time purchase?

Does anyone anyone know if the Xbone is coming with a free month of xbox live? I can't find anything about this but it just seems crazy for them not to do it because they were basically the console that started the whole "buy a console and get a free X months of xbox live".
Sony is giving away a free month (for new users) and of course that will include a free PS+ game (Resogun) and they're giving away a month of the music streaming and actual cash in $10 of PSN credit to use in the store.
I just can't believe MS is doing  nothing at all although I haven't seen anything to suggest otherwise.
163  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Re: [PS4] Resogun on: November 11, 2013, 10:13:26 PM
I thought it only came with one month of PS.
Brilliant move though. "Here have a free month of PS+ so you can play online. Oh by way, PS Plus allows you to get free games. Here's an awesome free game! But it only works as long as you keep subscribing."
I wonder if this gen the PS4 will have an even higher percentage of premium users than the 360 had last gen.

Can we just compare the first unofficial unboxings here? For the Xbone, a guy is lucky enough to get his early and makes an unboxing video which is then removed because MS complains that an unboxing somehow violates copyright and then his console is banned (temporarily but they didn't feel the need to make that clear right from the start). Sony on the other hand gives a console to one of the most watched video game YouTubers on the internet and allows him to make an unboxing for it which is then seen by hundreds of thousands (almost a million) of gamers, increasing the sense of goodwill towards Sony.
Just who is running the PR department over at MS?

Remote play looks incredible!!

It really makes the Vita a portable PS4.

Portable is debatable. I don't consider it that portable with the portability is the range of my home network.
For me, portable means can I play it without needing to use the TV because my wife is busy using it?

Is it too late to post more resokutiongate news? I'll just leave this here so that TiLT doesn't need to. I have no idea how reputable this website or this Marcus character is though so take it with a grain of salt. Too bad we couldn't just have all the reviews at once and then then there would be no rumors.

Sounds like a great phone if you drive a lot and want to interact with your phone while doing so. Cheap as well. Still wouldn't buy one over a Nexus 5. If I was going to make the switch from iOS, that would be the phone. Of course the Nexus is a lot more expensive.
The Nexus is unlocked. I don't think the motor X is unlocked at $50.

Back to posting bad XB1 news!  icon_twisted
XB1 will not supprt 3d Blu-Rays at launch
http://www.engadget.com/2013/11/09/xbox-one-ps4-3d-blu-ray-playback/

I'm sure we are all terribly heartbroken.  Though I'm more likely to use that feature than to play CDs, (I've asked for Pacific Rim 3d Blu-Ray for Xmas, in what will be probably my first and only 3d blu-ray.)

This sort of sums up the whole generation in a nutshell so far. Both sides make mistakes but MS' tends to dwarf Sony's. The PS4 doesnt play CDs. Most people's reaction-what's a CD? The Xbone on the other hand doesn't play BRs - waahh?
I assume that will just be a very temporary thing though. Fixed in the initial update perhaps?
Edit. Ahh I see now that it's 3D BR support. Well that's not a very big deal at all for me. That wouldn't put be off buying an Xbone in the least.
175  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Re: 6 days until launch. Which system are you getting? on: November 09, 2013, 03:56:19 PM
I should also point out that TiLT hasn't posted in the Xbone thread since Oct 15th so he's obviously made a conscious decision not to shit up the thread dedicated to xbone discussion. If you are interested in discussing the xbone with no criticism then that's probably the place to do it. This thread is specifically about which console you're going to buy and why so I think it's fair to have a single thread where the two consoles are compared and contrasted. If you can't stand the heat then get out of the kitchen.
176  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Re: 6 days until launch. Which system are you getting? on: November 09, 2013, 03:38:39 PM
ATilt posts lots of bad shit about the xbone but let's be honest - there's a lot of bad shit to post about the xbone. Like banning a guy who just happened to get his xbone early. I mean really, it's already like shooting fish in a barrel do they really need to make it any easier? Perhaps someone over at that multi billion dollar company would be paid enough to do something intelligent like email the guy ahead of time and say "Hey, congrats on getting your xbone early! We're really happy for you but to be fair to everyone who has pre-ordered we're going to temporarily ban the console until the official release. But here's a free game for your trouble!"
MS has also engendered a lot of bad will the way they tried to screw over all gamers not more than 6 months ago. I understand Sony is no saint of a company (far from it) but if it hadn't had been for them we would all be looking at consoles that you couldn't play offline and games that you couldn't trade or lend to your friends. Being able to jump around in your living room in order to do some virtual exercise isn't going to make up for that.
While TiLT 's posts do tend to focus on the negatives he has also posted more than a few negative news stories regarding Sony as well. You probably have only to go back as far as the Sony DLNA fiasco to see that or COD poor FPS for PS4 before that or the potential PSN network launch problems before that.

I tried the demo for this for the PS3 and didn't find myself getting into it. I never got very far in Torchlight either, nor in the other click and hack game that was big on the PC 4 or 5 years ago. What am I doing wrong? What do I need to do to enjoy this type of game like everyone else seems to?

Laugh all you want, but at the end of the day only one console has an HDMI in. Sony can't patch that in.

I was joking but of course it's good. It's not something that I would ever use though. My current setup is a TV and a PS3. My next one will be a TV and a PS4. I don't think I have ever used an other HDMI connection before. But for some people it will be great.

I see there was an other one out in the wild and a YouTube unboxing but it has been removed due to a copyright complaint by Microsoft. Copyright on an unboxing? WTF? I don't know if I'm more upset at Microsoft or Google.

Basically he promised the suburbanites that if they voted for him he'd make it easy to drive. Building subways and cutting driving taxes and whatnot. Yes, people sold their city's soul for their car.

Smart move by Sony. I assume MS is doing the same thing? They basically invented the "give away the first month free".

At this point, my bar is set so low there's really not much they need to do to make me happy to rent this (or buy if the price drops fast enough).  If I can have some mindless fun while playing a next-gen graphics showcase, I'll be a happy enough camper. 
I could see a rental but I would not be paying $60 for a next gen graphics showcase that actually only runs at 900p. Grabbing a demo would be a far cheaper way to show off the graphical power of next gen.

People claim that the Xbone also suffers framerate stutters but to be honest I can't tell, at least not on Youtube.
My first impressions are: what a horrible looking game. And by horrible looking I mean something that would not look out of place on the current gen.  Is this the best that our next gen consoles can do? The COD developers ought to be ashamed of themselves.
*edit* Also to be clear, I'm referring to the COD game in general, not the Xbone version of it. I'm sure the PS4 version looks just as plain.

What sort of STUPID business person or entrepreneur would willingly give up half of their revenue which could end up being in the thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars in order to save $1500? I am not a rich person but even as an individual I could easily throw that kind of money together in order to double my profit. Surely any small business or startup could do the same.

Sounds like the PS4 version is going to pay for 1080p. Sounds like the framerate bogs in places where the 360 and PS3 are stable. I wonder how the xbone version will fare.
