    Revealed today, Microsofts new console Xbox "One". Pretty standard features shown so far, nothing new and exciting. Thoughts?

    Based on the link provided in the OP, I don't know what to think. ;)


    I'll probably buy one when my current 360 kicks the bucket again. I just hope these are a little more resilient out of the box. I'm already getting RRoD nightmares. :lol:

    New CPU/GPU hardware, blu-ray player, set top capability. Not a lot of real detail yet. Dumb name.

    Let's see how all this TV integration works in Europe. Being from the UK and living in Germany it's a total arseache to get UK TV and english films/shows to watch already. I fear all this integrated stuff will be entirely useless to me.

    Pretty terrible name. Even Xbox 720 may be better

    ^ Interestingly enough, I went to find pictures of it after it had been announced, and several old Xbox pictures came up :lol:

    Going to wait until all launch titles are revealed @ E3 before making any judgements. But to be honest, the entertainment center integration features left me just as underwhelmed when MS tried to make a big deal out of SmartGlass last year.

    Incredibly underwhelmed by it, it really doesn't offer anything new, just more of the same. I really wish they just focused more on gameplay and the actual games rather than all the other social crap that they seem to be pushing for so hard.

    But that's where the real money and market share is now. They're not worried about gamers buying it. Gamers buy consoles. They're worried about how many non-gamers they can tempt, how many people they can convince that another couple hundred for an Xbox is a good buy instead of a Roku or smart Bluray player.

    So yeah, after hearing some news about Microsoft charging people to play used games: News: Microsoft confirms 'pre-owned fee' for Xbox One - ComputerAndVideoGames.com

    Them calling the Kinect a ....ing respirator: Xbox One Will Not Function Without Kinect Attached - IGN

    And them effectively killing off backwards compatibility with 360 games: Xbox One not backward compatible with Xbox 360 games | Polygon

    Looks like I'm not gonna be getting Microsoft's One Paperweight. Even if they wasn't doing any of that stuff, they really didn't bring anything out that's actually worth looking into

    and im going to wait til release before i decide on this one. if this news about mandatory kinect, and used fees is true upon release, then Microsoft can kiss my black ass.

    after the Vita lies, im not believing shit til it hits shelves.

    PS4 will be mine though.

    If a Kinect is required to be connected to use the console at all, you can guarantee will be included.

    Also, you do realize that by your statement, you shouldn't believe anything about the PS4 either right?
