    posted a message on Killion Detention Center - Largest and # 1 Prison Server [UPDATED: 1.7.4]
    SUGGESTION: Make voting give 5 KC points per vote rather than 15 for all of the votes (and split up the other blocks equally as well if is needed). Right now, all of the other players are able to get a reward from voting on each site individually, and if one is down, it doesn't hurt them as much. I voted on two sites today, but I can't vote on another because it keeps giving me an error. This would make more sense all around.

    That's it, I'm going with PS4. Xbox One still looks like a decent console, but this ed me off.

    To save server power for other services and it would be cheaper for MS in the long run to have say 3 people in each library playing the games than say 5, 6 or 7.

    But is there an official answer to my question is what I am asking.
    I couldn't find one.

    I agree. This a nice little feature they threw out for family's who will have more than one Console in their home (God knows how their paycheck can afford such things...). Something I hope you or someone else will tell me: How many people are allowed to view the library at once? I understand 10 people can have access to it, but will there be a limit to how many people can use it at once?
    I'm sure it'll be 10. Why would it be any different?

    No, and that's a decision made by the developer, not a restriction put in place by the console.
    Your point? You can't split-screen most games, and being able to play one copy of a game with 10 different people is pretty big.

    You can with up to 4 actually via splitscreen or games where the players are on the same screen.
    You can split-screen Skyrim?

    10 people IN THE SAME FAMILY. Who would be in the same house anyway and could share a disc.
    Can you currently buy one disk and play it at the same time with two people in one house? Didn't think so.

    It's not like it's a huge upgrade to anything. And then there is the necessesary Kinnect stuff...
    Not a huge improvement? Well, first off, the hardware is miles ahead of the 360 and PS3. This alone is a huge improvement. The way the games are able to be stored and played off of the hard drive without the disk is big. The fact that a single game can be shared between 10 people is revolutionary. The cloud services, if implemented correctly, could single handedly put the Xbox One in the lead of the PS4 by a lot.

    Please, tell me that that isn't a huge upgrade.

    Dude, stop trying to defend the xbox one. Just stop being a fanboy.
    Having a different opinion, and liking a console, automatically makes me a fanboy? Stop being a PS4/PC/whatever fanboy then.

    Like to see you try and "Organize" my room for enough space to use the bloody thing.

    Another question springs to mind if anyone knows: Do you have to be seen by the kinect when you turn it on for the Xbox to work, or will it just have to be there for it to turn on?
    There's no reason to believe that you would have to be seen by the kinect.

    I am one of those people. If I tried to use a kinect in my room I'd break my ankles on my coffee table, my wrists on the frame of my cabin bed and my skull on the bed itself. Even with rearranging the furnature I would not be able to manufacture the space to make it possible to use the thing, my room is simply too small.

    Microsoft seem to think that all their customers live in multi-room mansions with acres of floorspace. Unfortunately, the real world is a little bit different...
    Obviously not everyone will be able to flail around with the space they have, but there's no reason to believe that anything beyond simple hand motions will be necessary, if even those are necessary. I was talking about finding a place to put the thing. Shouldn't be that hard if you know how to organize.

    The Xbox One will be a huge waste of money and there will be no reason to buy it.
    Prove it.

    They would buy the PS4 instead. Less sales for Microsoft=Microsoft not getting as many high-quality games due to publishers and developers going with PS4 instead=Everyone unhappy. Other than Sony and PS4 customers and unaffected Wii U and PC gamers.
    Do you seriously think that people are going to go with the PS4 just because they have to do a little rearranging? If there is anyone that does that, the number is very small.

    Quote from Frog81

    Look at the reveal trailer. I'm pretty sure they will end up spending more time of it talking about stuff OTHER than the games/specs/that kind of stuff than about the games/specs/that kind of stuff.
    E3, E3, E3. The thing is that we already know it will play games. We already know that it has much more powerful hardware, and that it will bring a bunch of new stuff in gaming. They focused their launch on what the Xbox does in addition to gaming. It's just a different marketing scheme, and it really only seems like a problem to hardcore gamers that don't spend their time thinking, which is a pretty small amount.

    Except the controller is wireless, and the TV is sort of a given. Besides, some people may have a TV setup where they don't have a good place to put a kinect.
    They're gonna have to make room. If you buy something that you don't have room for, that's your problem.

    Quote from Frog81

    I'm trying to say that they need to make gaming their MAIN focus, and everything else a side feature. If watching TV requires a paid cable subscription as well as the cable box then I don't see why you shouldn't just use the cable box instead.
    Gaming is their main focus. I'd love for you to prove to me that it isn't, because with the 15 titles in development, the matchmaking while playing a different game feature, and having a side bar to watch tv/netflix/skype while you game, they must be just abandoning gamers, right?

    I believe that, at least for the US bit, not sure about the others, took a survey that 40% of households in the US have a gaming console, and about a third of those have internet access or something.
    The survey only asked about consoles though, as far as I know. Nothing about internet access. It seems to be guesswork about how many people have consoles and internet, so that picture is useless.

    Quote from Frog81

    Just because it doesn't have to be turned on doesn't mean it doesn't have to be connected.
    But there's no privacy issues, so what's the problem? The controller and TV have to be connected for it to function, and the kinect is just something else that is part of the console. Who cares?

    Quote from Frog81

    I'm trying to say that at least with pricing, the Xbox One is at a huge disadvantage. It should be going for having GAMING as the main focus, not sports, TV, or a live action Halo TV series. To use the TV features anyway you require a cable subscription, meaning that you could just hook up a cable box instead. They should focus on having their games easy to access, requiring very little setup, and being easily resellable to friends
    if you get bored with them.
    Focusing on gaming in addition to other things isn't a bad thing. They aren't abandoning gaming. If they are, please, correct me with examples.
