Microsoft to gamers: No internet? Buy a 360

Microsoft to gamers: No internet? Buy a 360
Published by: X_Splinter on Thursday, June 13, 2013

Microsoft seems to be making a habit out of shooting itself in the foot.

With gamers still smarting over the company’s $499 pricing announcement for the Xbox One, the head of the Xbox division has ruffled more feathers in addressing concerns about the system’s demand for a internet connection.

"We have a product for people who aren't able to get some form of connectivity - it's called Xbox 360," Don Mattrick told Geoff Keighley on GameTrailers.

While Mattrick was likely attempting to point out that Microsoft will continue to support its existing console for some time, the somewhat flippant nature of his comment came across as dismissive to the fans who have voiced concerns about the system’s need to check in online every 24 hours.

With internet connectivity becoming ubiquitous throughout the country -- and many parts of the world (at least, the ones Microsoft is targeting with the Xbox One) -- the company thinks some of the outcry over the requirement is overstated.

“When I read the blogs and they talked about who’s really most impacted, it was a person who said ‘Hey, I’m on a nuclear sub’,” said Mattrick. “I don’t even know what it means to be on a nuclear sub, but I’ve got to imagine it’s not easy to get an Internet connection.”

Despite the PR tempest, Microsoft says pre-orders for the Xbox One are strong. Amazon has told the company that it has nearly sold out of its initial allocation of units (though how large that allocation is was not disclosed).

And Yusuf Mehdi, SVP of the Interactive Entertainment Business, told Yahoo! Games that while the Xbox One will cost more than the PS4, the company believes consumers will look beyond the price tags.

“It isn’t just about price,” he says. “It’s about value. It’s the value for the price. What I believe is we have incredible value for the price we’re offering our system. And I think it’s unmatched compared to other things.”

EA/DICE Confirm 64 Players Online for Battlefield 4 on XOne, PS4 and PC

Celebrated DICE Studio Delivers a New Era of Battlefield with World-Class Multiplayer Gameplay Featuring Levolution, Commander Mode and Epic 64-Player Battles for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. What was that? 64 Player on Xbox One. Did I read that right? woo-hoo!

Battlefield 4 for Xbox 360

DICE demonstrated the next generation of Battlefield 4 at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, California today. DICE showcased “Angry Sea,” a stunning single-player demo at the Microsoft media briefing, “Xbox: A New Generation of Games Revealed.” DICE also debuted “Siege of Shanghai,” a spectacular 64-person multiplayer match at “The Download: EA 2013 Preview” press conference. Both software demos were running at a silky smooth 60-frames per second, even while rendering massive maps, vehicles and infantry, environmental effects and dynamic destruction. Gamers can tune into a live stream of Battlefield 4 multiplayer direct from the EA E3 show floor at: http://www.battlefield.com/uk.

In the Battlefield 4 E3 2013 "Siege of Shanghai" trailer, see how DICE is leveraging the powerful Frostbite 3 engine to push the boundaries of multiplayer.Witness the glorious chaos of 64 players waging all-out war in the Battlefield 4 "Siege of Shanghai" MP map. Check out the amazing gameplay video below.

DICE also revealed two notable innovations in multiplayer: a game-changer called Levolution, and the return of the fan-favorite Commander Mode. Levolution creates a dynamic and emergent battlefield where gamers can use the environment to their advantage like cutting the power to a building to shroud their enemy in darkness or reducing an entire skyscraper to rubble to alter the battlefield. With Levolution, the environment reacts to the player’s every move and ensures no two games will ever be the same. Commander Mode places two opposing players at the heart of the situation room with a birds-eye view of the battlefield. It’s a tug-of-war match between two commanders as they deliver critical intelligence and powerful assets to their troops below to the turn the tide of the battle. Gamers will feel the rush of Commander Mode on current-generation and next-generation consoles as well as PC. For the first time, commanders can also take control from their iPad® or Android™ tablet.

DICE also announced today in celebration of the unveiling of Battlefield 4 multiplayer and to thank the millions of fans that have logged over one billion gameplay hours in Battlefield 3, DICE is giving away Battlefield 3: Close Quarters digital expansion pack to all Battlefield 3 players for free*. For more details on how to download the pack, please visit: http://www.battlefield.com/battlefield-4/cq-giveaway.

"Battlefield 4" will be available November 1 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. Battlefield 4 will also be available for Xbox One, and the PlayStation 4.
