I wonder how many of those were given away to press, so called Celebrities and other hangers on ?

Well I bought the Wii U so none of this effects me. But interesting is the Wii U has sold over 6 million units vs. 5 million shipped!

It's only a "Disaster" when compared to the Wii which was a blazing success. Nintendo went from #1 to #3 in one generation. That's the problem at Nintendo. They are bleeding money just now.

Well then I guess the PS4 is a huge disaster compared to the PS2 using that logic.

In almost a year and a half vs 5 months. The Wii U launch has been a disaster though it's games seem to do ok.

Disaster? Hardly a disaster when 6 million consoles are sitting in living rooms!

Nintendo better get that 2014 line up out the door to boost sales.

Still the largest reason in my opinion not to purchase an Xbox One is to force Microsoft back into PC gaming. 5 million consoles sold is 5 million too many my fellow gamers ;)

The kinect for the One is basically a spy device for the NSA since the damn thing is always on, or at least that's what I last heard, please correct me if I'm wrong. It's the main reason no one I know will touch it, and almost all of my friends are avid console gamers.

Incorrect about Kinect for Xbox. Where did you get that idea, was it written on a wall somewhere?

On the flip side of the coin... What types of devices throughout america are spy devices for the NSA?

1. Any computer made after 1998 - connected to the internet, doesn't matter what type of hardware or software is attempted to be placed to try to stop it.
2. Any laptop, even without internet connection.
3. Most any smartphone
4. Most any payment device card.

5. Soon to be every drivers license - will track you through a type of extended range rfid

Thanks for paying your taxes america, it helps the government which is supposed to serve you, to watch over the entire country like children

Hassel, you forgot the ones for your car and outdoors. The big one is EZ Pass or the like toll transponders that will give your ID number to any device that pings it. McDonald's was testing it for drive ins. People have been driving around with these transponders for 20 years or more and never give them a thought. The other is automatic license plate readers built into the cameras of police cars these days. Oh yeah, traffic cams, stoplight cams, security cams. Even my neighbor runs a security webcam by his house that anyone can access via the web.

You're wrong, as it can be disabled. The always on feature if you wish to wake up the Xbox 1 with voice commands. You can change the system settings so it actually powers off instead of going into standby mode. I prefer leaving it in standby as it will download and install updates in this mode, for both the system and games. No more waiting for the system to update before powering it off.

Can it be unplugged?

Yes. Kinect is optional.

This was announced last year after E3.

I wonder how the release of Titanfall effected sales. The ps4 hasn't really had a flagship game come out yet but I assume that Kingdom Hearts 3 will move more units. At least that's what I'm waiting for.

I think it gave it a boost as that is when I purchased mine. Of course it had nothing to do with getting it for $300 on eBay though new, since I could not find one on store shelf's where I live.

Unless Halo 5 is the best game ever not going to buy one =)

avatar

big_montana

And how will you know if Halo 5 is "the best game ever" unless you buy one? Other peoples opinions are subjective and just that opinions. I got Titanfall based on the reviews and totally hate the game, though it seems like I am in the minority.

Why'd you get a Xbone to play TitanFall? The console doesn't even run the game at 1080. Eyestrain city :(

I have titanfall for the Xbox One. I was one of the first of my friends to get both the Xbox One and Titanfall and I have never felt eyestrain from the console. Just cause a game doesn't run at 1080p doesn't mean it will cause eyestrain.

I have played titanfall on a 22" 1080p computer monitor, a 65" 1080p TV and a 65" 1080i rear projection TV. The game looks great on all of them and I have never felt any eyestrain from any of the TV or monitors I have hooked my Xbox one up to.

Some people prefer to play a particular game on a console. I know I prefer the PS3 for playing COD (except Ghosts which sucks IMO) and obviously Madden (that isn't even available for PC).
