Well now, Microsoft's next-generation console will not be called Xbox 720 as previously speculated, instead the console will be named Xbox One. The device features an eight-core AMD Jaguar based proc...

im so glad they ditched the disc d-pad

doesn't look nice either, it's like they went back to the original xbox and tried to make it look modern. i'd prob grab the controller for pc use though.

Yeah I cringed when I first saw the damn thing... ugh... oh well as long as it performs good enough, I suppose cosmetics don't really matter too much. I didn't think the original was much of a looker either.

if they really manage to get this graphics out of the new xbox or ps4, which will have approximately ~50% less power than an actual hi end pc and future pc ports will not work proper and don`t look that good, knowing that the next gen consoles have a very similar architecture. then

I like the design and the operating systems stuff.
It appears that Windows Store apps will be able to run on Xbox too, which is great for developers. I'm also curious about that gaming OS - why haven't they used just modded Windows and if they had good performance-related reasons, perhaps the changes will be integrated in some next Windows version.

Also, it seems that hardware- and software-wise it should be able to support Steam, but I doubt MS would allow that.

Perhaps it'll be my 1st console, but I'm not sure. PC is still good.

I'm actually interested in it for a home media center device more than gaming. If the price is south of $300, then we might have a deal. At least this one looks likes it has value compared to the plain PS4.

That being said, there are some questionable design choices:

- 802.11n --> Why not 802.11ac seeing as how that will be the standard from this year on.
-No Bluetooth?
-No Miricast?
-No mention of "lightroom"
-No mention of 3D or frame doubling interpolation

Look at the size of the damn thing incredible. Well, it will sure look alright on top of a good ol VCR.. pity nobody has one anymore. Wonder why is it so large. ?Heating issues? Shouldn't have put an apu inside. CPU+GPU would be easier to cool down.But I guess Bill would miss them extra few dollars..

You sure you want it? It still needs your cable box and the annual Xbox Live fee (which may or may not be revised upward) to work.

Both Consoles appear to be nothing more than cut down PC's without ANY upgrade path. If they let the developers hit the hardware without all sorts of middleware between the games and hardware they might perform quite well, but I think I'll pass on both as we all know they will be about 350-400 when they first arrive and probably in small numbers as well.

The console looks like a VCR from the early 90s, but with a fancy remote called kinnect.
It's just big and ugly.

I was expecting that MS would show games, but insted we got 1 minute of Forza 5, 1 trailer for a Remedy game that shows no game, 5 minutes of a COD game and a whole hour talking about a remote a TV programming.

When they were speaking about the specs, they just raced through it, trying to hide them, because they know that the PS4 is considerably more powerfull.

Somehow they managed to hire some people to aplaud on demand, at every little worthless thing. Rather pathetic.

That was probably the worths console reveal I have ever seen. A complete failure by almost all measure.

I bet they didnt include 802.11ac so a year down the line they can sell you an upgrade attachment. Light room will be at E3, and 3D will be based on what the devs want to do. Also I thought it was common knowledge that the controllers use bluetooth to connect to the console, just no pairing with other devices, unless that is another attachments they want to try and overcharge for.

The CPU is about the same, an 8 core Jaguar from AMD. It's a weak CPU, but for a game console, the focus is the graphics card.

The GPU on the PS4 has a 1.8Teraflops of processing power, but the Xbox One only has 1.2. That is a big diference, on a GPU from the same manufacturer, AMD.

One would expect that because of this, the Xbox One would be cheaper, but because they include kinnect on all of Xbox One's consoles, the price will end up being about the same as the PS4.

So the choice will be between a less powerfull console with a cool remote, or a more powerfull console, focused on games.

One thing that kills the Xbox One for me, is the used games fee policy. This is the kind of thing that harms gamers. Since you no longer can lend or borrow games, and can't sell them at a decent price because of the fee, on the long run, having an Xbox One, will become quite expensive.

Again, most of the complaints sound like they come from "hard core gamers", a group that completely doesn't represent the average consumer.

The average consumer doesn't care about the slight difference in video game quality that is only apparent in a side-by-side comparison.

What he does care about is an all-in-one media center. The PS3 sold well not because it was superior in gaming to the Xbox360, it sold well because it had Blu-Ray included.

I, and most people, if given a choice between a system that just plays games with a side addition of movies or a system that integrates me, my phone/tablet, my TV, my movies and internet into the living room; I know what most people would choose.

The new Kinect2 looks amazing. If they are able to get the input lag low enough, you can have some awesome virtual boxing games coming out (imagine that with electrodes ) and fitness programs.

I wasn't interested in any of the consoles up to this point, the last console I had was a PS2 that was mainly bought for the DVD player. But this Xbox One announcement actually has me very interested if they get the price right.

It also better be able to stream content over the local network.

P.S. - The reason I am disappointed of the lack of mention of Bluetooth 4.0 LE is that there are tons of fitness and sports hardware that use it to sync and update live, not to mention your phone. How awesome would it be to come back from a run and have your Xbox One pop up the results from the run including distance, calories burned, average pace, etc.

Not to mention bluetooth audio devices...

A 50% diference on GPU power, doesn't translate to minor graphical improvement. Not only it provides a better graphical quality overall, but also a much smoother gameplay.
The diference between the PS3 and the Xbox360, was a lot smaller, but the diferences were noticeble. Be it a hardcore gamer or a average gamer, they will see and feel the diference in GPU power.

Having a TV services like those are nice, but one can find most on many TV boxes, and recent TV sets already include a nice feature set that sattisfies the average TV user. Only an hardcore TV user will care about the things the Xbox can do.

The only thing I saw that is a game changer for some, is the NFL content and the Halo TV show exclusives. But even these only appeal to some. NFL might be big on the US, but on a global scale it is almost a niche sport. And the Halo series only appeals to Halo hardcore fans. Even for NFL fans, it will not be that much appealing to buy a console and an Xbox Live subscription, and an NFL subscription just for some bit of extra content.

I 100% agree.

As a "hardcore gamer" this was single handily the worst console conference I have ever seen. Even worse than the Nintendo E3 Wii Music fiasco! However, I can see that for the average consumer the tech and features they showed off at the conference were brilliant and the average person will jump all over them. If they make it so you can customize those voice commands to be anything you want (ie you could say Xbox Suck My D**k and it would turn on) then that would be cool. The interface looks sleak, and how it ties in with your existing TV cable box is also something the mass market will jump on. Also, the average consumer (ie mom's and dad's) will like this approach as it brings the whole family back into the living room and also allows them to monitor their children's game time as well.

So I can see it reaching out to that mass market, though most of these features apart from the voice recognition the Wii U can do too. There is a TV button the remote, a second screen to view other things rather than the game such as websites, etc. If they get the price of the Wii U down a bit more, show us some top games at E3 for the whole family and through a bigger hard drive (64GB should be the sweet spot for the Wii U) it could steal some people away from the generally adult orientated Xbox.

Now this sucks: Xbox One Does Require Internet Connection, Can't Play Offline Forever

Add this to the used game fee, and gamers are really getting the short end of the stick.

I agree completely with Horus here but guys lets not start another console war that will take years ahead ok?Ps4 is much more powerful i agree with him and i saw the whole thing yesterday myself for xbox one.They really rushed out the specs so they wanted to be done with it before more viewers could see that moment and start saying things behind their back and make them look like fools.They didnt want that so the just passed things quick.Seriously all they shown us yesterday were media tricks with voice recognition and a fancy dashboard.


Ok heres the real deal.Who wants a console that changes tv channels in a blink of an eye with fancy voice recognition and super duper media tricks and who wants a console that really puts up hardcore gaming and its more powerful in hardware terms and wants to play games hardcore time?


I would really go with ps4 in my opinion rather than being fancy with the media tricks they pulled lol.And what did they say about the 15 exclusive games?lol.I guess half of them at least will be on PC as well in 3 years or so.Such exclusives games they will be then.


All they did was to show off media technology and say things their own way by speaking in advertising ways where they expect to you say (yes,whoooaaa,NICE,or start shouting).At least i will never accept a console that turns into a tv or does almost anything except cooking LOL.Seems too much of a sissiness console to me.Sorry if i said that in a harsh way but i agree with Horus all the way.

Add this to the used game fee, and gamers are really getting the short end of the stick.

LOL.Imagine buying a game then the disc is getting scratched by accident and doesnt play anymore (since M$ with xbox360 has a history with discs and their drives) then i wanna see what ppl will do with em.I guess even this new xbox will suffer such issues as 360 did in the past from day 1 and i wont be surprised at all.And thats the most unimportant thing of all.



Funny thing was that they were speaking of how much you can share with your friends around the world by MEDIA means necessary while in GAME means you cant even transfer share media with em inside your own house.Lets say 1 family has some good times with 1 console them and their kids then they decide to buy a separate 2nd console where only their kids would like to play with it in their room.Then you want to transfer a game from one console to the other but you cant.Such SHARING as you can all see.In the end they do care more for MEDIA sharing such as tv channels,music,movies etc than GAME sharing media.
