Microsoft Stumbles Through Xbox One Announcement

The Xbox One announcement was an hour long, though really only 45 minutes if you don’t count the 25% of the presentation devoted solely to being a singular ad for the (non-Xbox exclusive) Call of Duty: Ghosts. The presentation veered wildly around from topic to topic, starting strong, but finishing prematurely before nearly any important questions about the system were answered. (Xbox One)

Microsoft failed with the Xbox One IMO! Stupid name, ugly controller, no games "again", console is literally a box, no streaming games, no instant downloadable full game demos, no jump in and help your friends playing games live, and nearly all about TV. What is there to like?

Don't forget ugly console...ooops! :)

I am an ms fanboy, always loved my xbox but the new one is made of pure cash grab so I can definately see myself turncoat. halo reach was a letdown for me and halo was about the only thing left keeping me from going to playstation by this point

Are you serious? Its 2013 and they didn't fix that flaw? lmaooooooo

Please tell me you are joking? Looks like we will have to pay extra for rechargeable battery packs again

Microsoft really need to show more exclusive games, if they want gamers interested in their console.

Out of their presentation only one game peaked my interest. Remedy's new game (confusing but intriguing).

BTW... there are still way to many unknowns in relation to both the Xbox One and PS4.

Yeah but even that was a WTF moment, because I think fans want an Alan Wake 2.
sway_z  +   712d ago
Remedy's game was confirmed as pre-rendered footage, as was the EA footage. I believe only COD and Forza 5 footage was actually running off Xbox One.

Awful name....why not just Xbox?

TBH most games shown are coming to PS4 and all that TV/Cable stuff is already in your home without the need for Xbox One.

Seems to me MS did better with 360's reveal .... I feel more confident in PS4 than X1 after seeing both reveals...

They also said they have 15 exclusives 8 new ones. I'm hoping they show them at E3.

Definitly did a lot better than the jump off a cliff ps4 event

YOU are a real nasty piece of work. Don't bring your lame attitude here.

You're so negative...obviously you're disappointed in Xbox One reveal, so was I, and many others....but don't be a douche!

The playstation event was not as flashy but all of the mentioned features peaked my interest as a gamer, I like that I no longer need my pc to share my game videos but most of all ps4 is doing something my pc didnt, my friends can hijack my controller for a go on my game or help me out and interact with my game, whereas the xbox is everything I have already setup in my room with my pc, which is connected to my tv downstairs. I dont need another way to watch tv I already have around 4

i hear that with the spycam onboard, it doubles as on seriously big anal probe....also, early prototypes reveal that they were thinking of adding wheels and a cup holder for that sexy 'drinks trolly' vibe...

looks lie a vcr, with all the options a vcr had.

I know a lot of you want all the exclusives out on the table right now and that's it, I really don't understand your concerns just look at the library of great games out right now..

I don't think many of you see the big picture they said something like 500k servers they can def. back it all up! 8 gig ram, 2 seperate gigs in Kinect, the ease from game to tv and everything else, the contract with nfl is firkin huge!guess whats going to be front and center at super bowl, that snap grab feature too.. man if your not excited about the xbox one then your just a bitter gamer.

all I hated was the stupid name talk about a Nintendo type of lame name. considering the direction it going in, couldn't they just call it xbox live? it is live that's going to make the xbox shine.

I cant wait to hear how the ps4 interacts with everything. threy already got me sold on the psvita playing all ps4 games, I got it thinking I could do it with the ps3 but we all know how that turned out.

I've been a die hard Xbox junkie for years. After watching the PS4 reveal I was sold just because the system looks like it will PLAY GAMES. Watching the Xbox reveal was just painful, I was bored, grew tired, lounged on the couch, took a piss and smoked a cigarette. PS4 had me wired from beginning to end. I already decided that I'll be buying a PS4 this year, and after watching Xbox One reveal (stupid name, 720 was way better even if the console sucked) it just confirmed that I am not buying an Xbox holiday season. I don't know if I ever will again. Personally I thought it was just a douche bags way of saying "give me your money sheep, you can play games on it too..." If I wanted a game console to do tv, music, net browsing, amidst the other things I would buy a fucking computer... oh wait, I HAVE A MAC! I DON'T NEED A MICROSOFT PRODUCT!!! Very lame indeed.

They should have spent the hour talking about the set top box and how it will take over the living room and left all the gaming stuff as a blip of whats to be shown at E3. Instead we all woke up at the end of the announcement like a roofie victim with a bad taste in our mouth and more questions than answers. Instead of being mind-blown I was brain-raped. I lost an hour of my life and I cant recall much of anything.

Talk and wave at your Tv, Bluray, EA, Steven Spielberg... WTF did we all just watch.

I think Microsoft should of at least of shown 1 or 2 shocking and truly exclusive game. I don't know if they are trying to keep their cards close because they fear sony might 1 up them during E3 but if that's the case then whats the point of this reveal. With E3 being so close they could of had this huge E3 conference where the revealed everything.
