The lights are on
Update: The survey is now closed. Thanks for participating!
In anticipation of the reveal and eventual release of the next Xbox, we want to know what Xbox owners think about Microsoft’s consoles.
It seems like only yesterday that Microsoft was taking a gamble by challenging giants Sony and Nintendo with a new console of its own, and now the company is a success in the market and preparing to release the third iteration of the Xbox.
Have you owned the Xbox or Xbox 360? Please take a moment and click on the link below to take a quick survey (some questions may require answers to proceed), the results of which will be used in a future issue of the magazine.

It had a question asking if I've played the Halo games, but not one that asked me if I actually liked the Halo games. There is a difference :P
im probably one of the few who love to play around with the avatars :3 its a guilty pleasure but i love the props and customization
as a guy whose 360 red-ringed 4 times I have no faith in the next X-whutever. if its appealing then yeah I'll probably get one but as of whuts in speculation Im good on it. plus I think the whole gold membership thing is riddiculous for anything other than know ur friends are online, for as much money as they have/make its just not cool to a consumer not to mention all the bs adds they have on there!
I own a 360 and about 40-50 games for it (I own many video games in general), but they really need to step up their exclusives. I played through Halo 4, but I was just going through the motions and not having too much fun. Gears of War isn't that great (I've played through 1-3) and have no replay value whatsoever. Fable was a game I thought I would get into, considering my appreciation of action RPGs, but I found that lacking and couldn't get into it. Alan Wake was the one good exclusive I felt they had and they've not done much with it (besides a mediocre DLC side story). The 360 isnt a bad system by any means, but whats going to keep me sticking around? Eyeing the PS4.
i haven't had an Xbox experience, not sure i want to have one after experiencing it at my frineds house...
I wish you could use the apps without gold
I'll eventually obtain both Consoles from Sony and Microsoft. I'll give them a few months, then I'll jump to purchase. The Wii U doesn't count...it's not a system I'm hopeful for. oh well. Happy gaming gamers.
Sorry, I'm going to sony this time. The type of exclusives like Killzone, Infamous, Gran Turismo etc. are my preferred style of games. I still can't forget about getting the red rings of death twice and having to pay for online. At this point I can't really guarantee myself having a good experience with a new xbox console.
I honestly didn't see a single Xbox exclusive that I even wanted to play. Recently switched over from consoles to pc gaming and I don't think I will be able to go back. Mostly because pc exclusives > console exclusives.
i don't play games unless its my console, there needs to be more options. As it is, it kind of pigeon holes your answers into someone elses experience.
The only reason I've had so many 360's is because I've had to sell them to make rent or pay some other bill that needed to be paid from time to time.
The original XBOX made me a fan of Microsoft's console, so I prefer it over the others. As far as the next XBOX, I will probably wait and see how it will do before deciding on getting it.
When it asked me about which exclusive was my favorite I said Gears of War, but to be honest I like some 3rd party stuff better.
If Microsofts wants me to consider Xbox I'll give them an usefull Checklist, they must adrees everything or I wont consider buying as a second console; so far I'm in for Ps4:
[ ]Free Online or keep it but give all games a cheaper price tag. Like Halo5 or Gears4 new for $30dollars. Then I pay live and get the multiplayer component of both games, and thanks to XboxLive I save 10$ or 50$ if I dont want to pay for any online multiplayer at all.
[ ]Don treat Silver Members like crap let them use Netflix.
[ ]Get exclusives, that arent sequels to Halo, Fable (which I dont like), or Gears of War.
[ ]Finance exclusives that are trying to change the industry.
[ ]Let Rare make a non-Kinect videogame.
[ ]Bluray Disc.
[ ]Rechargable Controller.
[ ]Dont have a Red Ring of Death.
[ ]Drop Microsoft Points and change them to real money.
[ ]Dont make it casual, dont focus on Kinect.
[ ]I want exclusive deals whenever I buy a game like getting Bioshock1 free when I bougth Bioshock Infinite.
[ ]Drop always online.
[ ]Remove the ads from the Dashboard.
[ ]Fullfill every of my demands stated above.
[ ]Drop timed exclusivity; it doesnt make sense at the end just end up loosing as people on Ps3 had to wait, but can get Mass Effect1, Call of Duty DLC and Episodes from Liberty City anyway.
[ ]Make cheap affordable bundles like Sony: The Uncharted Collection, The Infamous Collection, God of War Collection, Assassins Creed Collection, etc, you just have the Gears of War 1&2 Collection. but Why havent you released a cheap affordable Gears of War Trilogy or Halo Trilogy? or Fable Trilogy?
