Well, the PS3 has Uncharted and The Last of Us, so you've got to have one of those, and if you love Halo or Gears of War, you need a 360. If you want your Nintendo games, you clearly need a Wii/U.

Also all the people who had a 360, and also wanted a cheap Blu-ray drive.

I have the Ps3, 360 and a Wii-U atm, I have to say the feel of the 360 controllers is the best of all the ones I have. It fits your hands the best.


Jesus, you have a PS3, 360, AND Wii-U? I don't see a point in having more than 1 top-gen console, especially 360-PS3. Besides a few exclusives, they do basically the same thing.
It isn't my fault I have them, I bought only the PS3 and Wii-U myself, the 360 is my brothers. Also the only reason I got a Wii-U was because of anticipation for the new super smash bros.

I really wish they'd update the 360 with a bluray drive. I hate having two devices for that. Too late now, I guess.

I was looking to get a knock-off WiiU or 3DS.

Wow! I was really hoping they'd do this, didn't expect them to though. They might have just won back a customer (and many more), nice job Microsoft.

Microsoft has to really screw up to pull a complete 180 like that. Now if only they'd listen in regards to win8...

Now people will complain that they can't play games from their 10 family members.

I can play games with my 10 family members by letting them use my profile on the console. When you buy a downloaded console game, is it available for all users on that console? It should be. If it's not, that's messed up. It already boggles the mind that you pay for Live subscriptions per user rather than per console.

Typically licenses are per-user or per-console. That is, any user can play your content on the console it's registered with. This is why you transfer your licenses when you get a new one. You can also play your content on any console you sign into.

You can buy family live subscriptions and games generally allow guests to play under your profile. They usually appear as "Profile (1)" and do not earn any achievements, but they can still play.

I'm sure I'm in the minority, but I'm disappointed they reversed their decision. I'm glad to see some things gone (24 hour check in, why is that necessary?), but it's unfortunate I'll have to carry around discs to play. For the most part it really didn't sound different from Steam.

As a Nintendo/Gaming PC fan boy, I just enjoy watching the two fight.

In my totally subjective opinion, I feel that Gaming PC + Wii U + 3DS gives you the best coverage of exclusives, game play experience and graphics (from the gaming PC). However, if you are not a Zelda, Mario and DK fan I could see how the Wii U might not be appealing with the current limited game selection.

To touch on rdrake's last post, I have never understood why people love Steam with it's rather restrictive DRM but almost riot over EA or Microsoft doing the same. Steam is rather convenient but I don't like the idea of someone having the ability to take away my games on a whim.
