I'd be pissed if it was marketed to the hardcore with empty promises, just to get their money for initial sales, then make haste to the casual.

Why would I be pissed? I don't know, I just hate when people get burned by businesses trying to take advantage. I'm a rare one, I guess. I give a poop about the next person. :)

E3 needs to come quickly. I want to see what the Next-Box can do and hopefully Microsoft doesn't forget the people who helped build the Xbox brand. Gamers.

Should have been otherwise?
Kinda funny that they have to specify that it plays games XD

It will be marketed as an entertainment device and games are a form on entertainment.

Ehhh, I want a games console that doubles as an entertainment device

I find it funny that Blu-ray is also a form of entertainment but ironically microsofts so called entertainment console won't be able to play them.

Please could you post a link to a CONFIRMED source that says that the next gen XBOX will not be able to play Blu-ray movies?

@ green

I think he's speaking on the rumor that the nextbox won't play blu ray disc based games.

Will it be so hard if for the last 5 years or so Microsoft has blatantly gone the rout of wanting to be your entertainment device. Even going so far as getting it's own tv model off the ground. Turning it into a tuner.

They will market it as a game console that does all these other things they've been building toward. Not hard to keep up with that.

Add to that a list of codecs that neither will support.

Can they market it as "it only does everything"?
