My Xbox one is already going back to the factory. Between one and the 360 this is failure number three. When will I learn to get a play station.
The console wars are getting out of control, especially since those PC master race guys (or PC fanatics as i like to call them) got into the action. Now before people start calling a console fanboy, i should note that i don’t have a problem with PC gamers as long they don’t take it too far (TB is a good example of not taking it too far). Anyway the three sides (PS, Xbox, PC) need to stop this, it’s childish as hell.
Joe, Ditch your minions, please! They are obnoxious as hell and you guys are acting like you are 13 years old. Had to turn off this video as it was so bad.
Hello from the UK. Joe, I’ve been racking my brain at which console to get ever since they were announced. I am a loyal xbox gamer like yourself and have played on the new xbox one at the launch events.
I love the new controller and some of the exclusives that are out and future releases but I’m so tempted to jump ship to Sony and the PS4 because i’ve read several reviews and articles that it has better graphics than the xbox one and I kind of agree when I played on the xbone… but then i dont want to change as all my friends have xbox live and feel it is a better service.
Its such a hard decision!! Since you have played both consoles, what would you recommend?
So far ive really enjoyed the xbox one. The voice command kinda sucks though because even my son can make demands,commands,or whatever. I can be playing a game and he says xbox select bing. What the freak! But besides that its nice. Its true potential will take a year or two so thats even more to look forward to. And ps4 just seems like the the baby sister console now. They should compete with wii u. And wii u has zelda so good luck ps4.
Would be interested in your thoughts on TW:R2 now that it’s been patched a bit. Still holding off on buying it but it should be on sale soon again via steam…
ooowh new console Stations 4, I like station 4…!
the excuse for some of the greatest crimes in humanity is “they were just doing their job”, or “they were just following orders”.
uuggghhh a ear muff mic …. eeeehhh i hate ear muff mics for gaming.
i don’t give a hoot how they look , i like the fact that xbox one seems to have a lot more cooling for what is essentially the same hardware.
dude seriously ??? you think ms rushed .. ask me it looks like they at least considered cooling the system. i don’t expect the xb1 to have half the problems the rushed xbox 360 had.
in sony’s deffense though , the system does look prettier than xbox one. Also the PS4 will allow for easy hard drive swapping while xbox one will not.
what the hell resolution it natively runs at should not matter if you don’t see a difference (and i’m a hard core pc gamer). Its a console not matter what resolution it runs at it still won’t look as crisp as a pc title because it will use low grade AA at best if at all. and TV’s are not manufactured with as stringent manufacturing process as computer monitors are.
So who cares as long as there is no humanly visual difference between its upscalling and native 1080p.
killer instinct and CoD ghost are you f—ing kidding me … two games that are available on current gen (ie will NOT look much better on next gen ) are these 5 guys idiots . i’m with you joe GET A GAME THAT IS BUILT FOR NEXT GEN like Ryse or dead rising 3
don’t review CoD …. please just NO , screw it … review DR 3 or ryse instead dude. I hate madden…. sega’s old 2k series was better so EA went and bought all exclusive NFL licenses because they knew their product was shite in comparison
over all this generation has failed to impress me. lack luster hardware (compared to last gen vs PC when it released). and the launch titles don’t really impress much on either system there are no really “must own” launch titles imo.
Compare the controllers please.
No Killer Instinct? I love it when you review fighting games Joe. Also, you gotta admit that someone dumping 560$ + tax on one fighter is pretty badass (if not somewhat questionable).
Hit this issue up before someone else does, MICROSOFT is watching you, pht them in their place , I’m a trur gamer i play from pc to console , but i don’t always have internet!
Joe! dude you need to get back with me on this or DO something ! there’s people out there who aren’t able to get these words out.
Let me explain, I just moved into a new apartment but hell yeah i bought the xbox one , i do not have internet yet though, so i take my xbone to a buddys house to do the initial update , the one to allow me to play offline and whatknot, ok so i go home , i have no game yet i put in a blue ray movie , xbox says please connect to xbox live, i said wth, next day i bought battlwfield 4i take it home thinking “its ok ! i can still play games until i
getinternet back” unfortunatly 14% into installing b4! it tells me to connect to xbox live to finish the install!!! my XBOX ONE IS. A BRICK, unplug your xbox one and tell me what you can do! NOTHING not even you avatar can be messed with or your old messages or the dvd player! the only thing I’m capable of doing is sit at homescreen
I found not functioning offline a bad business move also.
Hows your Station 4 getting on Joe lol
why the *bleep* is this censored??
@J: Because AJ and co need to stay polite from now on. Otherwise, they might no longer get to use their XBone apps, maybe even their games. Check out this nice little article to see what I mean:
I understand Joe has to get the XOne80 for professional purposes but me, I’m staying far, far away from this machine. Through updates, the XBoner still has the potential to become what MicroSoft originally intended, one small incremental step at a time. No thanks. [Of course, the PS4 can suffer the same fate, but at least there is no pseudo-mandatory Kinect 2.0, which has the greatest potential for data collection and inducing privacy issues]
Hopefully, its data-collecting settings are opt-in rather than opt-out. If you bought an XBone and care about how the system will monitor and/or collect your input, be sure to check all its default settings.
Once all the settings are exactly as you want them to be, I wish you a fantastic time and tons of memorable experiences with the device.
Ah, and here we go with the free speech impediment. How much more are we gonna lose? Even Youtube was much cooler before Google came around.
I just had to LOL at the last bit. interesting story about how this show got started.
Yeah, this video finally made me lean upon the PS4 side. i didn’t even know the Xbox controller needed batteries, like wtf? the brick? i thought they were getting rid off that and it doesn’t seem like the $100 extra for kinetic is worth it, maybe when they get a really bad ass game.
So, yeah PS4 for me but no Kill Zone this time thanks to the review.
You do realize that batteries are essential for any wireless controllers? Just sayin, you guys are trying really hard to find something to bitch about.
‘Side from the Playstation’s controllers.
I think plenty people don’t like having to buy new batteries for a controller or getting rechargeable ones. It was a real big killer for me when I played my X-box 360.
Making the console able to charge your controller was really good. Not quite sure if the PS4 does that, haven’t really looked at it.
yep. that’s my point. i never had to charge my Ps3 controller and it really kills it for me to buy batteries or run out of charge while playing on anything battery powered.
So I had to charge my wireless controler by using a cable.
Doesn’t that kind off kills the purpoes of having wireless controler?
not playstation…you load the controller on the console..no batteries man
All it needs is a top loader VHS with an old fashioned wired remote. We could also add a digital clock flashing “12:00am: all the time to complete the picture. Somehow the PS4 is smaller and doesn’t have a brick. The people at Sony must be wizards or something to figure out that miracle.
My PS4 arrives tomorrow and I think I’ll stick with that for a while. I’m not against getting the Xbox1 eventually but I’ll wait until it’s cheaper and smaller. Plus I want to wait out the fact that I believe that MS will eventually backtrack all the DRM stuff along with the used game nonsense. Give it time and MS finds a way to screw you along with their good buddies EA
TonsOfun, yay! Will he get more presence in the show now?
Not purchasing an XBOX One am sick of Microsoft and their disgusting lies and betrayal of loyal customers and as for those two corporate muppets that promote their products I would like to have a date with the two of them and a pair of pliers.
Two faulty XBOX Ones neither of which I obtained a refund for, controllers that break apart on impact and that use BLOODY BATTERIES and games that crash constantly (namely Skyrim, Fifa games and others) incase any little Microsoft butt lickers are out there.
HAHAHAHAH! i always die laughing at the PS4 “broken” bit. its funny cause for Ps2 and Ps3’s they give the lil badge thing the ability to let us twist it depending on if its standing up or sitting down. But suction cup off is a new one. But when he freaked out at first i thought “what? what’d i miss? did he break it? FUCK!” and then…he showed the P..and I had to be revived after dying of laughter. XD
btw, expect a Frothing rant on Fighter Within. and why hide the whole Resolution thing off the game cases?? Why microsoft?
Oh shit dude that was so funny at the end. That’s original Kinect getting back at u Joe with Kinect 2’s first born child, beware fighter within.
nice tacky product placement……… terrible drink. shame on you
Let the countdown to the disc errors, broken kinect, broken controller, and many other problems begin.
Give me x box one!!
Getting new gaming content on AJ show is almost like opening up a present or something. You check in daily to see if new content is up and one day… yipy! lol
Good show as always.
This is probably the most entertaining Xbox One unboxing I’ve seen. “It… uh… looks like a VCR.” Hahaha!
Ps4 all the way. Or in Joe’s case s4 all the way.Funny as hell video!!!! loved it!!!!!
Hilarious, as usual.
Uhhh is that other one a free giveaway too ? ^_^
