Xbox One: Will Games Be An Afterthought?

Well, now that the dust has settled and the hype has died down – very quickly, by the way, what’s there to say about the Xbox One?

Well, if you happen to be a fan of the social media craze or if you like to talk to Kinect (which can now read your emotions better than your wife/husband/parent), you might be happy Microsoft bunny.

If we talk about games, it’s different. Sure, EA is now a big partner, and FIFA’s Ultimate Team (which is not more than yet another microtransaction-fueled rip-off machine) will be an exclusive, there’s going to be new Halos and Forzas (who would have thought?), and oh yes, we got new material of the coming overhyped Call of Duty: Ghosts which might get yet another special deal on the Xbox One. Well, look at that:

This fucking patriotic shit looks like a fucking recruitment ad for some fucking army. It disgusts Rabidgames to no end! Of course, there’s no gameplay material, just shiny pictures glorifying war. Hooray!

Oh, there’s another revolutionary idea! Apparently, we can use our TV to … watch TV! Thanks to the Xbox One. Thank you Microsoft. You’re the best.

There’s some more news trickling in, and all of it is bullshit: No backwards compatibility, and a fee for used games. Seriously, fuck off, you greedy cunts!

Rabidgames is annoyed: Sony 1, Microsoft -1. That’s all.

    E3 is right around the corner, and the purpose of this reveal was to show off the hardware and its capabilities, not a bunch of games. For an initial announcement, it did its job moderately well.

  2. Hey there! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a group of volunteers and starting a new project in a community in the same
    niche. Your blog provided us beneficial information to work on.
