    "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."

    - Don Mattrick, President, Interactive Entertainment Business, Microsoft

    Update 1.0 (20th June 2013)

    Xbox One now confirmed to be Region Free + a few other changes to policies and what not but who cares : )
    : ( No self - developing policy means no indie games, this included the possible DayZ console port, oddworld and Fez 2 plus a few more

    Update 1.1 (21st June 2013)

    If your going to pre-order a PS4 (and your in Australia), order it off Amazon or Kogan, will be loads cheaper : )

    Update 1.2 (25th June 2013)

    MS looking to invest over 700 million $ in the cloud service for XBL, and supposedly they are going to change their mind over the self publishing policy, this will be positive towards indie developers (Dayz, oddworld etc)

    Overall the xbox has a better service & software than PlayStation which is also the main reason as to why am buying it instead of PS4.

    I am such a cheap ass it is unbelievable. I love the Xbox but since they have announced what they first announced I didn't like that. But now after these changes I am tempted to go back. I really like both systems but I always preferred playing one over the other and for the past many many years it has been Xbox, but I can get free games. And with the Xbox 360 I was spoiled to the bone, haven't paid for a game in years. I hope Xbox becomes moddable in the future because has always been my Daddy and PS3 was second in the spotlight. In other words I go where the free games take me. [​IMG]

    You and me both brother, I can't remember when was the last time I bought a 360 game with me having the xkey and a jtag. Now let's see how long until we get a jtag Xbox One or at least a successor to the xkey for the one.

    They never listened to the people, they listened to their pockets, since their pre-orders weren't the first to sold out on Amazon. This is something that could've been easily addressed but they refuse abs only kept giving mixed details about their service and even avoiding directly answering any of our questions and concerns. So seeing as Sony sold out on Amazon pre-orders they decided "they didn't take our bait and Sony is getting all the glory, let's just rewind and play along and say we took in your feedbacks and decided to roll back on the whole drm and always online crap"

    The specs are really not that different, won't see much performance changes..sometimes newer video cards run worser than older ones.

    You won't ever need so much RAM on a PS4 cause it doesn't have much intense features unlike the One.
