It is pretty obvious why they have called it "One"...

They gave 359 less fucks about it and the gamer public this time around.

I guess they already expect the regular gamer to buy the next gen system, they are just trying to reach out to people that have absolutely no interest even in fucking gaming so they can sell their fancy cable box to them.

Well, I already have gaming consoles, and a cable box, so I don't see any reason to get this goddamn thing.

I really hope the real gamers sharpen up and not buy this fucking catastrophe because the stupid people won't know any better.

The negativity about this thing is just confusing. What did people want from it?

Microsoft already has a UI that works on the existing console and is consistent with Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8. No need to change it. In fact they improved it by adding snap (great feature on Windows 8) and by letting us know that Windows 8 applications will run on the machine. That means no long waits for apps! Whereas on PS4 the applications have to be specifically developed for PS4 and it will be as poor a selection as there currently is (no Sky Go for example).

People moaned at Sony because they didn't show the console. Microsoft did and that was the whole point of the conference.

The majority of games will be multiformat anyway and a lot of the games at Sony's conference will be on Xbox One as well (The Witness, Watch Dogs, Destiny etc)

I'm guessing you watched the whole thing without sound and didn't follow up on any of the other news, Neil.

1. Those multiplatform games will run worse on the Xbox since the PS4's GPU is 50% more powerful (not even taking into account the GDDR5 advantage of PS4). You mention Destiny, which will have a bunch of PS4 exclusive content and be demoed at Sony's E3 conference. Jonathan Blow (The Witness) said Sony actually CARES about independent developers whereas MS doesn't give a shit. So expect PS4 to be the indie platform of choice. Even Notch (who's in Microsoft's pockets) was pissed off by the reveal.

2. Who gives a flying dick about the apps? It's a GAME CONSOLE. Focus on the GAMES. Not a fucking $400 million partnership with the NFL that could have been used to, you know, help develop better games. Give me Netflix and other basic stuff and we're good, but don't make it the primary focus of the system. If you want all those Windows 8 apps then fucking use Windows 8. Not that difficult of a concept to understand that people want their game console to have an emphasis on games.

3. Most of what they showed won't be available outside of the US. The live TV integration won't be available at launch anywhere outside of the US, and most of the apps they're focusing on are US-centric. But even as an American I don't give a flying fuck because I have a tablet for all that shit.

4. It's ugly and huge as fuck. They should have put a paper bag over it with some vent holes to keep it cool. The people who moaned about the PS4 box not being shown are stupid.

5. They didn't show any gameplay (other than three or four seconds of CoD gameplay) and instead spent the entire time beating off about TV integration. It's was 35 minutes into the one hour event before they even showed a game.

6. The system blocks used games. The days of just putting in your disk and playing on this system is over. You have to fully install the game on the hard drive (which, by the way, is NOT user-replaceable) and then activate the game. If your friend wants to borrow the game, they have to either sign into your Live account or buy the game.

7. Kinect is required for the system to even function. It is always listening for input commands, and MS has some pretty damn shady patents with regard to how Kinect collects information. This focus on Kinect is the reason why the hardware is less powerful.

8. No internet connection? lol too bad! For one, you need internet to activate your game and play it. And the system will not function if it cannot establish a connection once every 24 hours. Yes, I know this isn't a problem for most of us, but what about people who live in poorer countries where connections aren't good?

9. HDMI only. There's no analog output at all for video, meaning the 70% of households in places like South America who don't have an HDTV are out of luck.


Watch this:




Notice something? They actually cared about people who play games. Shocking! With the way things are going, core gamers who buy systems at launch are going to ensure that this new system gets buttrammed hard by Sony.

More great news!

The demonstration of the OS was totally faked. You can see it running here for real and it's extreeeeeemely laggy:




Also, MS is apparently having chip yield problems because of the stupid ass ESRAM solution they chose

Halo 5 - Shocking!
Killer Instinct - neat
Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty Land - Probably Kinect-based
Forza Motorsport 5 - not new
Quantum Break - would like to see more gameplay
Halo: Spartan Assault - Intrrested to see what this is. Hopefully not Kinect crap
Ryse - we already knew about this
Fable IV - More SHOCKING news
Crackdown 3 - awesome
Fortnite - Cool. New IPs are always nice
Dead Rising 3 - Meh.
Call of Duty: Ghosts - Also meh. Didn't look that great at the reveal
Battlefield 4 - oh joy, we get to see the worst version of the game
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Again, Xbone version will be the weakest version.
Dying Light - coo
Prey 2 - Comformation of this still being alive would be nice
Homefront 2 - meh
Beyond Good & Evil 2 - Another cancelled game revived?
Mirror's Edge 2 - Cool, but people will be pissed if its true that this is exclusive
Rainbow 6: Patriots - another game we knew about
Brother in Arms: Furious Four - cool series. Looking forward to it
League of Legends - Don't care. MOBAs are fucking stupid

Lots of emphasis on third party, but MS has weak hardware this time and will need to rely on moneyhats and first party games. Also, it will be interesting to see which games are actually at the conference since there's no way they can show all of that in an hour and a half. Sony on the other hand has two hours and is also rumored to be bring a huge number of exclusives.

The Xbone doesn't appeal to me at all, sadly. If the 600 price tag is correct, I can safely say the PS4 will be more value for money for me, even if its 800.

Only thing on that entire list I am remotely interested in is Dead Rising 3. Dead Rising 2 was absolute shit, but I really enjoyed the hell out of DR 1 back in the early days (before they started running zombie shit into the ground left and right and up everyone's ass) and it is still easily one of my top favorite 360 titles to this day.

Still, there isn't a single damned thing on that list I would even consider getting an Xbox for. I would be a little pissed off if DR was exclusive, though. Fuck the rest of those games.

Anything legitimately exclusive to the Xbox will likely be Kinect based, either to little extent or fucking entirely, which = fuck literally everything exclusive in that case. I don't like the idea of a camera being always on - on a machine that has to be always-on and will be on as long as the machine is anyway. That is a little weird.

It won't be 600. Don't worry.

Everything so far points to both systems being $399. Though some guy who leaked a lot of correct info about Xbone said it would be $499, which would basically be game over for them since they'd be releasing a significantly less powerful system with retarded anti-consumer DRM policies for $100 more.

Sounds reasonable to me, and finally we are going to have day one digital on all games.

So do car companies deserve a cut of used car sales whenever you want to privately sell your car? Does that sound reasonable to you Neil?

Good job quoting MS pr bullshit lol. Keep in mind this is the same PR team that's been toting "the infinite power of the cloud" which Eurogamer quickly tore to shreds.

This piece of shit is the Mitt Romney of game consoles. So out of touch with reality to that they're forced to spend disgusting amounts of money to bribe and cheat their way to success. I hope it backfires spectacularly.
