    Finally removing that paywall as well, for apps. Also games for Gold on X1. Good stuff overall.

    This was the biggest thing holding me back from an Xbox. Will defintely be owning both consoles at some point.

    Removing the paywall is a megaton. I've been waiting for that announce for years. I couldn't believe they forced people to pay to unlock web browsing, Netflix, etc. Just unacceptable and now it's finally over.

    Xbox Live is basically PlayStaiton Plus now and that's a good thing for consumers.

    This was my main hold back for getting an XB1. Will probably pick one up now sooner rather than later.

    Paid for both PS+ and Gold last gen, don't think I'll be getting Gold this time around and just run with PS+. PS4 will be my lead platform and along with all my online, XB1 will likely be just for single player exclusives.

    Will it also be $399 in Canada as well? That would undercut the PS4 by $50, which is big - optics go a long way.

    First time Microsoft did something to make me think I might pick up a Xbone at some point. Still going to get a PS4 first but down the line I might actually own both now.

    So now it's the same price and largely same feature set minus 40% ROPs?
    Good on'em.

    Xbox One and PS4 are even now with price and online services. If they can just 180 their decision to go with weaker hardware, we'd have a good fight on our hands.

    At least both systems are a good option now. The only problem now is they are so similar there's pretty much no reason to own both unless you are hardcore and want the exclusives.

    Uncharted 4 is the reason I am going to have to dole out another like $450 down the line.
