My understanding of Microsoft implementation of whats going on in the cloud is very complex and are large sums of data, processed and what is sent to the Xbox One are only small files (KB). At this point what they are doing with cloud processing the speed of your internet won't matter. But as the life cycle progresses years down the road and they try to use the cloud to push "the power of the Xbox" the data packs I'm sure will get much larger(MB's) and the games will become "always online". The quality of your internet connection will become critical.

Launch titles like Forza 5 you can play offline, but as soon as you connect to the internet it sends your Drivetar info it collected during that 24 hour period to the cloud and then updates Drivetar profiles onto your console.

I'm pretty sure you are correct about being able to connect the Xbox 360 along with a PC or a set top box to the HDMI IN port on the Xbox One.

Meh... I doubt I will buy a next gen box. I got value out of the PS3 because it was one of the best bluray players when I picked it up and my son had some games he really wanted to buy.

I tend to buy most games used, so Microsoft's game rental philosophy doesn't work for me. And it IS game rental when you cede control over the title you 'buy'.

Years ago (and I presume still) in the medical industry it was all about consumables. None of the big companies made $ off the hardware. They used the million dollar machines to lock medical centers into their brand of consumables. MS is trying to turn games into a 'one use' consumable.

Based on input so far, I would by the PS4. I hate messing with the cloud if I don't have to. I also have a slow internet connection.

I have both preordered but am undecided. Always been a bigger Xbox fan. I use my ps3 mostly as a blurry player, with the exception of dark souls most recently. I prefer Microsoft online system, etc.

I may end up with both but most likely ill get one at launch and one after price drop.

Yeah. Best to let it play out right before launch to make a decision.

MS has done a poor job in the PR department explaining a lot of the features like how advanced the Kinect is, cloud processing, HDMI IN. They also need to get into more detail about the concerns about the system like the 24 hour check in, DRM ect.

Based on the pre-orders MS is losing A LOT of customers that previously used the 360 and are now switching to the PS4. Even with the perfect controller MS has designed I might be switching too.

My kids can grind through a game in a couple days, so not being able to recoup at least a small portion of that is a deal buster.
Youth today have short attention spans and lose interest even when online play is available. I really see nothing wrong with the graphics they have already and I already have an oppo. Most of this is the result of people pirating games and M$ trying to circumvent it. The backwards compatibility explanation makes sense ,never thought of it that way.

Screw consoles. Buy a PC and enjoy games the way they're meant to be enjoyed.

My PC could outperform both those consoles combined smile.
