Xbox One Thread

I figured since its about 5 weeks away now, there probably should be a thread where people can get info, gamertags, their launch games, etc.
I'll add new stuff when I see it.

As far as launch titles go, I'm looking at BF4 and DR3.
Hoping I can swing Ryse in there, too.

The following is interesting. There are a few gamers I will follow but don't need to be their friends. I'm excited to see the reputation system and how it works. The favorites and friends is neat as well since I have my core group of like 10 people that are my steady online friends that I know in real life but there are a lot of people I meet online that are great players and want to play with them but don't want to add them to my friends list and have them see all my activities.

Not sure I'm getting a game at launch. I am going to put the system's OS through it's paces with a fine tooth comb and just download demos. I may redbox DR3. I want AC4 for multiplayer but since the system is so new no one will be online.

3 of my friends are getting BF4 but I'm not feeling it after the beta.

I'm not even sure but do 360/One - PS3/PS4 have separate MP for multi-platform games? I get that Sony and MS will not share but I wonder why 360 and the One couldn't (or the Sony machines).

I presumed since all big franchises have this upgrade system in place (BF for instance) that the MP would be shared.

Launch titles for me:

FIFA 14
Battlefield 3
Call of Duty: Ghosts
Forza Motorsport 5

I'm a little concerned about FIFA (and the other EA Sports titles). I saw a video yesterday from an ESPN piece that featured 'next generation' visuals and it looked like complete crap.

Not sure about the PS4 version but they said your stats for BF4 on 360/One carry over per version.

I think all your stats are saved server side, so it should carry over regardless.

Dead Rising 3 and Forza 5 for me. I'm super tempted to get Battlefield 4 though, but I never play COD of BF enough to justify a full price purchase, and even then half my list is moving to PS4. Choices choices choices.

Here's a good writeup about what Microsoft is trying to do with their cloud.

I'm not sure about my friends of friends but my core group of friends I play with are going with the One at launch since Sony put a paywall up for multiplayer and we are all pre-paid on our XBL for the next few years (I think it is mostly laziness of moving actually).

Having two different paywalls is going to hamper multi-console ownership this gen I think and really divide gamers as most won't pay for two subscriptions.

I know I haven't been all that active for the latter half of this generation...but my excuse is that I had become bored with all the same games.

So like always...early adopter this gen...pre paid on xbox live and a fan of the kinect/Tv integration...so I'm in for Ryse and Dead Rising.

Waiting on reviews of COD and Battlefield before I make that decision. Leaning toward Battlefield...but if it doesn't end up looking close to that launch trailer...they can go scratch for misrepresenting it.

Agreed, paywalls will seriously kill desire for owning both, no matter who's side your on.

Yeah, I think a lot of these features are pretty cool and will (hopefully) be quite useful to a lot of people.

They also officially today revealed that every XB1 game will have dedicated servers.

To online gamers, this is HUGE.

I'm going to love this feature. I have a feeling that if Namco Bandai ever makes a DS next gen game, they'll probably punish you for using it.

Edit: I see OJG beat me to it.

XBOne does seem to be back in the game after some early missteps. Most of the internet seems to be pumped for the release of Titan Fall. Anyway, it's good to have some healthy competition!
