X-Over? I don't know, they tend to choose names dependent on what seems in and it's a lot easier to pick a new name now than if they'd gone XBOX 360> XBOX 720.

Review of Xbox One
Also I've heard that Microsoft are probably gonna ditch Xbox for good
$499.99
No gaming system should cost as much as a PC!:what:
Please....try gaming on a $499 pc, and let us know how that goes. Considering nice graphics cards...by themselves, cost a as much, I don't see a fully functioning system being the same price that expensive. And these games systems go for a long time too. Look how old the 360 hardware is and still plays modern games.

As a toy it is expensive and all it does is being a toy. A PC on the other hand, is much more than that, "pound for pound" it's many times more expensive than PC. You don't need a $499 GPU to game on PC with even better graphics than on a game machine. My computer for less than double price of a $499 game machine is many things at same time, communication, internet, TV, Typewriter, copy machine, security center AND game machine with possibility for thousands of games, not only ones made just for one thing.

It is what it is and people buy it for what it is. You can debate Gaming PC versus Gaming console till the cows come home. You may not see the value in one but other people do. The Gaming console just works, no installing an OS, messing with drivers, updating drivers, etc. Some people want that. You press the power button and a way you go. And before anybody goes on about the Xbox ring of death, PC's break down too. I game on my PC, many because I can't afford to have both a PC and a gaming console. If I had the money I'd likely have an Xbox.

I agree with you. If I wanted to use a PC for gaming then I would have done that already, but I play my games on consoles because of the convenience. The media capabilities of the consoles also are a plus for me.

Also agree. $500 doesn't get you much for a gaming PC. With that money you can only get an i5 processor, a motherboard, and maybe 16GB of RAM. Then you'll still need a case, PSU, a decent graphics card, a DVD drive, and an operating system to get started.

Assuming you spend the same amount of money on both. Something built to do one thing usually does that one thing very well. Something built to do many things is usually a compromise at best.

And if you time purchases you can do some halfway decent gaming on a five hundred dollar PC. Certainly not any random computer of the same price but PC gaming isn't just ultra expensive graphics cards. I don't own an Xbox One yet (although I have a 360 slim and original Xbox) because I don't buy in launch year. Console gaming is a great way not to worry about components (I must've pored over fifty pages of laptop stats in March although I did end up spending $700 on a $1000 dollar system on special) but I get a little sick of PC gamers who insist the only way to PC game is with the latest and greatest components and then complain that PC gaming isn't as accommodated as console gaming.

PC gamers are by nature, a splintered group who really end up reducing their own visible numbers which leads to the endless console ports to PC or ridiculous 'our game can only be played by top tier systems'. The major gaming publishers and studios would have to sink a lot more resources into PC gaming if it was visibly bigger than the elitists who drown out everyone else. I haven't needed to play at 800*600 for a long time, personally think it looks horrible but I realize that it allows some to play games they wouldn't otherwise be able to. If people really want to play at the extreme low end, then they should be able to without angry idiots insisting that smaller resolutions be scrapped among other lower graphical options. (An actual debate on a Dragon Age: Inquisition board)

I'm a multiplatform gamer, I refuse to subscribe to the whole team PC/console dichotomy.

I had Pong, Atari, Caleco and other game machines and I can tell you I enjoyed them immensely with all those 4 and 8 bit graphics, very few colors etc. All that mattered was gameplay, in the heat of the moment you don't really have time to notice graphics, all it was missing was 3D. Heck, before that I spend hours in arcades playing Flippers. All of that was just games with very few titles for each. With PC you have thousands upon thousands of games that you can play on only one machine without buying another one for every few games.
You guys, with game machines, how many games do you have for them ? I'm not a gamer any more but still have couple of hundred of CDs and DVDs with them, not to mention half a terabyte on HDD. How many game machines would I need to play all of that ?

I agree that game performance is better on the PC, but it comes with significant expense and effort. Updates, patches, drivers, video cards, etc.

I appreciate the fact that I can just get a game, plop it into my console and run it. Never have to worry about system requirements, etc.

Also, having kids, sometimes my computer or my game console is tied up. If they were the same physical device, it would be less convenient as we could not do both at once.

And my game console isn't just a game console. It does my Netflix, it's my bluray player, it's my primary HBO GO device.

The hardest part for me and consoles was getting used to using a controller versus a mouse and keyboard. But with time, that became natural. The less capable graphics have never once bothered me. And the integrated party and chat features on the console are easy, no other software is necessary.
