About: Xbox One (x)

It's happened just as most of us had predicted. Our hate for everything wrong with the Xbox One has made Microsoft change it's policies. Check it out!

Straight from the horses mouth! Since their website is crashing right now. Read on Below:

Last week at E3, the excitement, creativity and future of our industry was on display for a global audience.

For us, the future comes in the form of Xbox One, a system designed to be the best place to play games this year and for many years to come. As is our heritage with Xbox, we designed a system that could take full advantage of advances in technology in order to deliver a breakthrough in game play and entertainment. We imagined a new set of benefits such as easier roaming, family sharing, and new ways to try and buy games. We believe in the benefits of a connected, digital future. 

Since unveiling our plans for Xbox One, my team and I have heard directly from many of you, read your comments and listened to your feedback. I would like to take the opportunity today to thank you for your assistance in helping us to reshape the future of Xbox One. 

You told us how much you loved the flexibility you have today with games delivered on disc. The ability to lend, share, and resell these games at your discretion is of incredible importance to you. Also important to you is the freedom to play offline, for any length of time, anywhere in the world.

So, today I am announcing the following changes to Xbox One and how you can play, share, lend, and resell your games exactly as you do today on Xbox 360. Here is what that means:

An internet connection will not be required to play offline Xbox One games– After a one-time system set-up with a new Xbox One, you can play any disc based game without ever connecting online again. There is no 24 hour connection requirement and you can take your Xbox One anywhere you want and play your games, just like on Xbox 360.

Trade-in, lend, resell, gift, and rent disc based games just like you do today – There will be no limitations to using and sharing games, it will work just as it does today on Xbox 360.

In addition to buying a disc from a retailer, you can also download games from Xbox Live on day of release. If you choose to download your games, you will be able to play them offline just like you do today. Xbox One games will be playable on any Xbox One console -- there will be no regional restrictions. 

These changes will impact some of the scenarios we previously announced for Xbox One. The sharing of games will work as it does today, you will simply share the disc. Downloaded titles cannot be shared or resold. Also, similar to today, playing disc based games will require that the disc be in the tray. 

We appreciate your passion, support and willingness to challenge the assumptions of digital licensing and connectivity. While we believe that the majority of people will play games online and access the cloud for both games and entertainment, we will give consumers the choice of both physical and digital content. We have listened and we have heard loud and clear from your feedback that you want the best of both worlds.

Thank you again for your candid feedback. Our team remains committed to listening, taking feedback and delivering a great product for you later this year.

Xbox One announced, more questions than answers

By: BatRastered May 21, 2013 | 11 Comments | Updated: May 21, 2013

I feel like I've wasted an hour of my life... Did they actually give us any information we cared about (other than the name)?

Why did Microsoft even have this event? What was the point? What was gained that a simple press release stating "we're calling it the Xbox One" wouldn't have accomplished?

Yeah, they told us the name and showed us the console (guess what, it's a black rectangle) and controller, and also a ton of non-game related features like watching TV... but, as they used to say, "where's the beef?"

Here's a list of the top 10 facts we DIDN"T get:

  1. Release date (everyone and their dog knows it comes out before black friday, so why no specifics?)
  2. Price - duh... I don't really expect this with E3 so close, but again, why have this event if you're not going to reveal anything?
  3. SKUs - Is there a non Kinect version? Different HDD sizes?
  4. Full Specs - 5 billion transistors? Photons? WTF? How about telling us about the GPU?
  5. How does the TV feature work, what is required? Can I plug the coax right in, or does it connect to the existing cable box somehow? Does it work with satellite? How about OTA HD broadcasts? Can I use this without paying for XBL Gold?
  6. Speaking of Gold, will the price stay the same? Will it still be needed for thlngs like netflix? They mentioned in the press release that existing subscriptions and gamerscores would carry over, but no mention of how much that renewal will cost you or if you get any PS+ style bonuses with it.
  7. Will we be able to play used games?
  8. Can we play offline?
  9. Can I tell the Xbox to shut off all those extra "features" like skype, etc when I'm watching a movie?
  10. Games - hooray, they showed cars and some TV show tie-in. Then they ended with a CoD game that will also be on the PS4. Where are the big name exclusives?

Again, I'm sure we'll get some of this at E3, but why have this event if not to detail some of the system? I'm not sure what MS thinks they accomplished today other than getting the new system's name, logo, and press shots out there. All of that could've been done in a press release a lot cheaper and easier. Though I suppose if you want cheaper and easier you'll probably have to go with the PS4 this generation. /rant

Last week the very first Microsoft Store in Las Vegas opened up in the Fashion Show Mall. This week is the launch event for the Xbox One & Sugar Ray Leonard will be there this weekend to play you in ... Madden?

I posted an Xbox One & PS4 on EBAY for a ridiculous price

By: goukijones Nov 9, 2013 | 1 Comments | Updated: Nov 12, 2013

Will they sell? I've seen a ton of consoles come & go over the years. I've even flipped a few in the past. Well I'm gonna try it again this year & want to share my experience with everyone. Will I make money? Ridiculous money?

Of course some Jimmy is going to have to bite for this to be any sort of success. I'm trying to get $799 for the Xbox & 699 for the PlayStation. We've had countless debates on what the hype is going to be for these machines. I can only come to the conclusion that people are going to go crazy just like they did in the past. Yesterday I was at a Demo for Xbox One, they pulled up a truck & plopped out a bunch of systems & let people play. I remember this one Jimmy coming, well dressed & had a hot girlfriend & stupid little dog. Proper nuab. He was flipping out while he was watching Forza. Clapping & shit. Out of control. He kept saying. "I gotta get this, this awesome."

Do you think this Jimmy has pre-ordered? I don't. I'm hoping that panic mode is going to settle in for a lot of people & the loons will just buy asap without regard. Am I making sense? So I listed 2 machines right now. An Xbox One for $799 & a Playstation 4 for $699. I also have another PS4 on reserve. I thot I had another Xbox One on reserve as well, but I can't find any record. If I can pay for that third Playstation by selling these 2, the second Playstation will be pure profit! Let's go. You can check out the auctions below.

Microsoft Xbox One Day one Edition [AMAZON] 11-22-2013

Sony PlayStation 4 Launch Day Edition [Amazon] 11-15-2013

If you're interested in Las Vegas, NV I can pretty much guarantee you will get them the day they come out. I have never had a problem with Amazon shipping. & you know me, obviously, you're reading this story.

I'll add future updates on the status of these auctions.

Don't be a Jimmy!

Xbox One Buyer's Guide How & Where to Pre-order

By: goukijones Jun 27, 2013 | 1 Comments

There's still plenty of time to lock down an Xbox One. Pre-order today. Check out these options. If you have another suggestion, please leave a comment.

Amazon

Xbox One Console - Day One Edition

Amazon still has these available for pre-order. Remember you cancel all the way up until it ships.

Xbox One Wireless Controller

A lot of people are going to want a second controller. They may be harder to find closer to release.

GameStop

Dead Rising 3 Bundle.

The only exclusive Xbox One game that I want to play.

Best Buy

Microsoft - Xbox One: Day One Edition

Best Buy says this is Day 1, but I don't have any details on when/how it ships.

Walmart

You can read a full-on nubfarm FAQ about the Xbox one.

Or you can just pre-order the "Day One Edition." Release day shipping unconfirmed. 

Saturday November 23, 2013 You had the chance to play Xbox One with Legendary Boxer Sugar Ray Leonard. We were there ... of course they don't let me near him.

This Microsoft store has been open for more than a week now. I was in there last Friday & checked it out for the first time. What's it like? It's like a Mac store, but it's green. The cool thing is they have kiosks out in the main walkway of the mall, just so they can spring out from around the corner & surprise a family with an Xbox One Controller.

Too bad Fifa14 is touch screen now.

Here's a Sugar Ray Leonard getting pwnd so bad by a little kid that he is trying to distract him by having a conversation.

*I don't know why people stare into the lens when they KNOW they are not supposed to be in the picture. This guy was a fellow camera man too. Duck Jimmy! Trollin' me, doggin' me ... what's the shits?

Check out the Microsoft store if you want to get an Xbox One or if you already have it, go buy some games. They got tablets & stuff there too. Even PC's that'll run those same games better than your Xbox One. Thursday night 450 people lined up to get an Xbox One -oh it's serious- believe it or not everyone left happy that night. Watch out for some more upcoming events during the holiday season. 

Thanks for reading.

Unboxing Xbox One

By: BatRastered Aug 8, 2013 | 5 Comments

Xbox's Major Nelson unboxes the new Xbox One for the first time. See what's inside the Day One edition.

It does come with the headset now... and a sticker.

I hate these touch based power buttons on consoles. I don't want it to turn on just because I'm wiping some dust off of it. Give me a real button or switch.

Xbox Booth E3 2013 GJ vs FNJ Exclusive Video

By: goukijones Jun 30, 2013 | 1 Comments

GoukiJones & FnJimmy talk about Microsoft at E3 2013.

I'm not super hype for the Xbox One. What does it have Dead Rising 3? Halo 5 in 2014. I'm over this 343 shit. I gave 4 a good run, I don't want to play that anymore. Destiny I'll play on PC if not, PS4, it'll be $100 cheaper. Don't be a Jimmy! 

Thanks for watching.

What do you think? Xbox One has the best games?

By: goukijones Aug 21, 2013 | 4 Comments

New video showcasing some games for Xbox ONE. Are they the best? Can you count the exclusives?

Do those Fifa & Madden cut scenes count as next-gen footage? No. Ryse is dumb. You only have to push square to beat the entire game. Oh wait, my bad that as God of War. Close enough.

Thanks for watching.
