    Its still not worth buying over the PS4.  When you hold the two packages together, ones cheaper with better performance, the other comes with kinect and worse performance but still charges more....lol.

    I don t want to give anymore money to Microsoft. So this doesn t change the fact I would buy a PS4 anyways, and it s a better machine for what I want it for, and that's gaming.

    Watch it chris people will claim the cloud will makeup for the ps4 having a GPU that is 50% better and ram twice as fast.   Despite experts saying the cloud is not capable of real time processing in the US because of latency and B/W however if you live in Japan or Korea it is.   Until the US has the infrastructure they have it just is not realistic.

    Not to mention that the PS4 also has cloud computing....

    This is bullcrap anyways. If they had no competition, and thus wouldn't of lost so hard they would have kept all of the ridiculous DRM bullsh$%. Too little too late. Microsofts gaming division has shown their true colours. To buy their system now is to invest into a DRM encrusted future. It may not be here now, but if they manage to squash the other guys you'll have no choice.

    If your GF holds a knife to your neck and suddenly changes her mind to use it, you'd be stupid to still keep her around. Shes already shown shes a looney. 

    FU Microcrap! Ex-Xbox owner/fanboy signing out permanently. Hello sony!

    Question is: do you trust that Micro$oft wont re-introduce these "features" in the future?
