Today, Microsoft announced their brand-new home console known as the "Xbox One". Here's the debut video.
Microsoft should leave the videogame market alone... They just buried their own hatchet.
the mods seem to be marking everything as trolling, even though its basically a TV. they showed next to nothing! I wasn't sure what I was going to go for first but this has definitely sealed the deal. PS4 for sure... unless it is also a watercooler aswell, like they said.
the conference was the worst. Can't wait for E3 with all those sweet kinect games!
yes I agree this conference was a complete waste of time... it was so utterly disappointing... nothing relevant for a gamer... just stupid babble about making my TV smarter..
but that thing just doesn't look good. I mean it looks like a cable box which (in a way) I guess is what they're going for - oh well I know there are people that will like the way it looks, nonetheless.
The box looks awful. Looks like a giant black brick. Like a DVR from 2009.
Buy the Xbox One now! It's only £32!!! Oh wait... http://www.microdirect.co.u...
That was a really disappointing conferene. The only thing that interessted me in the whole conference was wuantum break. Too much TV talk not enough games revealed. They get a second chance at E3 though.
I have to admit it looks really big I mean even Kinect 2 looks massive. They better not bundle that with the XboxOne...I'm not paying for something I'm not going to use
damn they failed hard. xbox fanboys wake up they don't care about games, they care about tv and media stuff now. Whole show was awful with Kinect and tv shoved down people throats. No games at all.
What are you guys talking about? They clearly said that the games will be at E3. Did you guys even watch the conference? 15 exclusives next year alone, and 8 of them are new IP's. We will get our games. Xbox One can do everything the PS4 can and Much more. Xbox One > Playstation 4
Oh we heard that.. But actions are louder than words.. What they showed and detailed was utter garbage in the mind of any true gamer... We certainly don't want a fancy way to switch inputs no matter how innovative they deem it.
It looks like a DVR. Oh wait: It kind of is.
Super sexy, I must say the Football Fantasy feature, the feedback on the controller PLUS the D-pad has got me sold for the new Xbox.
The controller looks great but I'm far from sold. I can't wait to see those 8 new exclusive IPs though.
I was definitely sold more on this reveal then Sony's. Which to me all they had was a share button which is kind of ok, but pointless for how I game. Nt to mention a profile type page that they wanted to remind everyone that it's like Facebook. I like the features they showed more for this plus the reveal of the Box looked great. Nothing crazy or overblown, just sleek and sexy. WOW, 16 disagrees for my first comment eh? I guess certain groups don't share my personal likes.
Well the did show the console, but the reveal was underwhelming...
To say the least
Xbox, Turn on PS4
This was my first thought when I heard the HDMI input rumor
Looks like a VCR...
The system looks lovely.
Dont like the look of the console one bit. It looks like a TV receiver.
Well because it actually is one. I just hope that they'll show a lot of games at E3.
hopefully it sells
It'll have no problem selling in North America and Europe.
America Yes, Europe?? Maybe??, Rest of the world?? Hopefully!!
I like the design of the new console to be honest
Why is the new kinect so big? It's like a brick.
I was Mad that Sony did not show the console and now I'm mad that Xbox showed their console.
MS failed with this event. Sony has the upper hand.
1 of the ugliest consoles ever created wtf is that????
So you get a cable box that plays video game. It looks like a dtv dvr
Its basically a cable box with kinect controls...the NFL partnership intrigues me but not if i have to pay 50+ for xbox live and then have to pay another subscription service for it
this reveal was catered towards your average consumer who watches sports and cable, and plays COD. Smart reveal for Microsoft to target that demographic (Spike TV anyone) but I'll stick to my PS4 I can do without the 'Ultimate Team' feature on sports games. I can do without a trailer for a game that made me laugh out loud. And you know what, I'll still be able to play COD:Ghosts, EA Fifa, madden, UFC on the PS4... I just won't have exclusive DLC that I won't be able to play, oh woe is me!!! /rant
OMFG WHAT A SNOOZEFEST!!!! #XboxFail
is it a Games console or a Digital Tv Box??
Not to be a fanboy about this but damn that was one major let down, not one of those terrible rumours was addressed. 2nd hand games? Always online? I got excited at the start when they showed the console itself but it looks heavier than my television! Not to mention half these features are probably going to be redundant outside of the US. I'm disgusted they kept the interface so similar to the old one too. I wanted a fresh experience. I'm pleased they have a number of exclusives in the works.
Haha...I think this box looks sweet...Now the Sony fanboys complaint is that it looks like a cable box....it is a box people, it is the software and services that will drive this thing. Can't wait for more info at E3.
Just as I feared, mostly Kinect and TV (which is kind a cool) but few games and mostly preendered and COD. So far, PS4 has my money. Entertainment stuff is pretty cool but I play more games than watch TV so ill go with the more powerful console. Besides I know how MS prices things movies, shows and music higher than Sony already.
At all the hate, I thought those TV features were good. Does no one watch TV anymore..........I no I still do. They already made it clear this was going to be a teaser to what will be unveiled at e3. Can't wait for e3 now to see what Sony and Microsoft have in store for us.
that was boring sure if you love tv and live in America, it will work great but in Europe these features never work as well did they show any games, I cant remember
The scores are in... XBox One : PlayStation 4
hahaha take all my bubbles!!!
ba dum tsh!
They're obviously saving the games for E3. I dunno about you guys, but 15 exclusives in the first year doesn't sound that bad to me.
That is true what you say, unless half or more then half of those exclusives are Kinect games.
Unless? LOL i assure you half of those will be Kinect games. I assure and guarantee it. And no, i dont need a crystal ball lol
Hello GrizzliS1987, Yes unless, since we got to make it fair that we don't know for sure right? LOL I share your sentiment on this, but nevertheless we still don't know for sure.
To be completely unbiased and objective about the conference I think the fluidity of the new interface and kinect was kinda cool I cant deny being able to switch between all inputs/channels just by saying it isnt neat. BUT thats as far as my praise from what was shown goes. XBOX ONE? I couldve had a 10 year old think of a better name. The design looks like a huge brick bigger than the actual xbox one. 1 actual new IP shown but no gameplay biggest dissapointment. They did say they will have 15 exclusive games and new IPs along with them so I guess we wait for E3? They failed to talk about specific tech desings like Sony did in terms of architecture. No answers on any of the rumors that floated around. I think it was an overall dissapointment.
Whew. And here I thought I would be buying a MS system.
Will all those TV features work outside the US?
I Laughed so hard when looking at the live chat comments on gametrailers while watching the Xbox reveal live by GTTV spike geoff keighly. Damn Those comments are hilarious, "Xbox, Go Home" XD LOL
I can't believe I was ever a 360 fanboy. Trolling ps3 articles back in 07. Then I wisened up in 2008 when there was spotlight on Resistance 2, and knowing Killzone 2 was coming out I finally gave in to ps3. Haven't regretted it since, Playstation truly is the ULTIMATE gaming system. No other console needed.
Wow that is one huge console o_O anyways can't wait to see and hear more about it at E3.
come on guys.... as everyone knows,i'm not a fan of microsoft and their quest to gouge gamers wallets.xbl should be free to play has been my thoughts this whole gen.and yes,i'm getting a ps4. but you got to critique the console objectively.seriously...you know this is something sony SHOULD have done with playstation as sony makes tvs,cameras and consoles and can definitely do voice controls.microsoft is just doing it first. is the console big?YES. does it matter as long as it plays next gen games and doesn't overheat?NO obviously the multiplatform games will be on par with ps4.as for exclusives,it comes down on who will spend the most money to make the best games.right now we know that sony has the advantage. controllers?well,i expect a controller that works and gets the job done.and they did change the Dpad like they should have. like it or not,motion cameras aren't going away.get used to it.you don't have to use it.but you can't deny that it can enhance gameplay.microsoft's problem which ruined its inception was gimping kinect this gen.but i doubt there will be any problems on voice or motion next gen.and i know sony will counter showing that their camera can do it too. smart glass and tv?definite jab at apple and google tv.maybe even samsung.not what i want,but the integration is actually pretty good. will i get an xbox one?don't know.didn't buy xbox 360 this gen because of paid services that should have been free and the abandonment of xbox original which i have.but it wasn't all bad is what i'm trying to say.if you like xbox,that's fine with me as it does seem that it will get he job done for fans. i just wish fans would step up and let microsoft know that you don't want to pay for things which should be free.so from me,it wasn't that bad.it was decent.and i'm jaded as they come when it comes to gaming.
Lukewarm after that presentation. I understand the simple design based off the fact this is a hybrid gaming, cable, dvr box and 3 operating systems. Yes, I can agree the skype, seemless control of gaming, television, movies, and music are great and being able to do multiple at one time are nice features to have, but I want games games and more games. Show could have been much better - instead of doing each demonstration twice, do it once - that probably would have saved 10 minutes and instead of saying we have 15 exclusives, discuss a few of them and have some video montage and state we will show more gameplay at E3. That would have been a nice tease, because honestly right now, as a 2 console gamer, next gen I may have to drop to one and Sony has the lead for me at this point - simply because of the games, not because it is slightly more powerful, it is because they have more of a gaming emphasis.
Still charging for LIVE, NO games. App bull shit. WTF. Why does the New X-box look like the last VCRs before they disappeared. That look would just jack up my entertainment center up. Wait that kinect 2 looks ridiculously BIG. The name X-box one serious. I had X-box 1 That was the good old days. YO CHECK THIS OUT. Someone blog there would be sexy girls in this revel. Those women where old enough to be my mother.
are they sure this isn't a Directv box? X must stand for Cable
While the reveal was a let-down on the side of games, I think the whole trash-talking of the gaming aspect of the new xbox one needs to stop. They don't show a single kinect game, yet the expectations are that most of them will be kinect games... wrong. Oh, and on the hardware issue, let's remember who had the better looking games on the current generation (Xbox 360) while it had overall worse specs than its competition (PS3). So there is hope for E3, and I'm not giving up on them yet. And all of the complaints going towards the looks of this new console; at least we know what the new xbox one looks like, unlike the ps4 being a black fuzzy box. Please just wait until E3 before you shoot holes in the consoles, because I guaruntee, opinions will change.
Im sorry but Xbox haters just fk off.. No one wants your stupid comments.. As it is true console gaming is declining and Xbox One is about lots of things not some old hardcore gaming like with the shitty PS3 that looks like a squashed radio. I dont care if you hate, I had a gaming PC, it kept over heating and breaking whatnot and sold it that same goes for PS3 and it kept breaking. Since I got Xbox 360 it never broke or I had any problems with it also I dont care if you think Xbox One looks like a huge brick. For me it looks awesome, the outside doesnt matter.. it is about what is inside. I like what they did with Xbox One, included more things that might be useful for us since I like to watch TV after couple of hours hardcore gaming and it is nice to slow down once in a while. With thia new system my dreams of a perfect console have come true to create this masterpiece also the Controller and Kinect look awesome and slick like they should be, another thing if you think that Xbox One looks like a big square box you may be right but any other console is a box. Ive had enough of hardcore gaming and thia happens to most of the gamers and they would want to dk something else.
