Gamingbolt: Xbox One Reveal Conference Review

"And that's that. With that conference, all the chips are on the table, and we finally know what next generation will be like in its entirety.

And if this conference was any indication, then it, along with the Wii U's dismal performance, prove that it will be a bloodbath, a thoroughly one sided victory." (Xbox One) 3.5/10

I'm still in shock.I was fully expecting them to drop bombs and
Even at the very end, i had a little hope when he started hyping up the "biggest franchise" etc.I figured it would be something GTA related.Then he mentions "once again, a partnership" and i thought for sure GTA exlusive content.
Then freaking COD to finish off.smh

Easily the worst conference ever.

If you want to add 12 subscription fee's to your monthly bills, a new lazy man's camera and pay to re-use used games the XBOX ONE is the console for YOU!!! Ohh I just got word that every console comes with a usher blow up doll for you kenict dancing needs...

Speaking for myself as a gamer which is interested in games Sony and the PS4 are the smarter choice for me..... See you guys at E3

guitarded77  +   996d ago
The conference was very boring. After showing the system, they should have went straight into specs, and then into games (even if it was just Forza and Remedy's project to show). They could have saves CoD for last like they did, but at least sammich the stuff gamers are less interested in. It was so damn boring. They better bring those 15 exclusives to E3, because as of right now, I'll wait for a price drop.
bicfitness  +   996d ago
You forgot about the crap hardware. So gimped they didn't want to talk about the specs. Bu-bu-but photons in DAH KINETXZ!!! What the Hell were they on about with that? I've never heard such drivel attempt to be taken so seriously.

I hope the media smells blood and goes into a feeding frenzy. Third console curse strikes again!

Microsoft dropped the ball, and Sony just picked it up and threw it at Microsofts face with PS4. Microsoft are finished when it comes to gaming.

They're trying to tap the Apple TV market, which is a stupid strategy. Heck, deep down even they know it... why would they otherwise pay group of people to deliberately cheer and applaud during every single feature announcement. That thing was so obvious i kinda felt sorry for Microsoft.

Why do they keep forcing Kinect like that, maybe some people don't like to speak to their every day devices after a hard day at work, maybe they simply want to come home and game.

"Xbox on" "Xbox play game" "xbox watch TV" "xbox watch movie" "xbox watch music" Lets do it again you guys! Did you see how instantaneous it was! "xbox watch tv" "xbox wa....

Yep, Sony's PS4 reveal was right on target. Sony did just about everything right from a gamer's perspective, while MS got most things wrong. Oh well, it makes it easier to go with PC and PS4.

Blackdeath_663  +   996d ago
they showed the console which was nice but the rest of the conference didn't have anything that made me excited as a gamer. the TV stuff was kinda cool but i'm looking for a games console i haven't watched live TV in like a year with the exception of some football matches (or soccer if you are american i have absolutely no interest in nfl). they didn't show any gameplay footage and the only games that were featured were EA,COD and forza oh and a trailer for quantum break (they didn't explain what type of game it was). the conference was pretty bad but they really shot them selves in the foot when they said kinect connection will be required for xbox to function and that every game you buy can only be linked to one account (your brother won't be able to use it for example even if it was on the same console) and has to be installed into a 500GB hard-drive which isn't big enough that can only hold a few bluray sized games. they didn't give specific specs, they didn't say if the hard-drive was changeable infact there was so much wrong with this conference its insane. even worse still there were hints that the current xbox live subscription system will continue. i just don't get it they are making a halo tv series which would require crazy amounts of money to make when they could have spent it making an actual game that you can play

@ FriedGoat

Wow, I would have missed that story amid all the spam right now. That's actually huge. The market just spoke. Ouch for MS. They better have some amazing games at E3, and a lower price, because if they come in at the same price I think most will choose PS4. Plus even if they come in at a lower price, you have to account for Live. They sure as hell better have Halo 5 to show to compete for those holiday dollars.

I don't care about platform wars from a "win/lose" perspective. I care about how the companies compete for my money by launching great games.
aCasualGamer  +   996d ago
The console looked nothing like a PC at all... No it did not!

All the features on there could easily be found on a PC aswell. Are you guys going to pay 400$ for a second of faster channel switching? Seriously Microsoft, wtf have you smoked and who the hell came up with the TV streaming service idea... for a fu----n gaming console????

Like my Dad use to say "you will never get a second chance to make a first impression". The only thing I saw was TV features, Kinect gestures, Internet Explorer, A mention of 15 exclusive(8 new), and a few CGI of multiplat games. Like the controller though but that's about it.

I think its hilarious that all the people that said the PS4 was "meh" and "bland" are currently M.I.A, this conference was terrible they pretty much confirmed 80% of the negative rumors about the console, this was actually below my expectations.

Still im gonna give Microsoft the benefit of the doubt and wait for E3, seeing as its only weeks away

In the real world Xbox has been the number one console this gen. And will continue to make strides into the next gen.

miDnIghtEr20C_SfF  +   995d ago
DayZ... you expected GTA to be announced when everyone knew that COD was there and still hadn't been shown yet, and it was the end of the conference. Yet you still expected GTA?

Pay attention better next time to what's going on. For the longest time they said EA would be there and IW with COD. Also they said that this was for the console and not much to do at all about games. Games would be at E3.
TheSurg  +   995d ago
How about you guys shut up and wait for e3. They said e3 will be for games. If they will fail at e3 then you can start complaining it's not for gamers. I don't care at all about some american ESPN crap and other tv stuff but just because it can do milion other things doesn't mean it's any worse at games than other consoles. Is nokia 3310 better at calling people and sending messages than SAMSUNG GALAXY S? NO! So shush and wait for games. You people are just unbelievable...bunch of impatient kids i say.

MysticStrummer  +   996d ago
You're both right. MS has a chance to redeem themselves, but based on what happened today along with the recent past, they probably won't. Their direction is pretty clear.
MysticStrummer  +   996d ago
Yes they do, but they just bought themselves more negative press until then, unless they decide to reveal some good game related stuff before E3 to offset the backlash.
dedicatedtogamers  +   996d ago
M$ has had since 2010 to make up for their terrible conference. At best, they've given lip-service to their fans and the occasional gimme (like Halo, Gears, Forza, Fable) every once in a while.
ZombieKiller  +   996d ago
actually I don't think even E3's presentation will get me to buy one. I can't wait to see all the subscription fee's associated with this new "rocket science" called Red Rocket of Death....

There is no chance I'm buying this one. Especially since they're still taking away from PS3 gamers with exclusive content with COD. should that choice be in the hands of the gamers as to which system they wanna play COD on? I had both consoles last gen er....this gen and all my friends play on PS3 yet Flops II crashed my ps3 TWICE. Full crash too, first time sent out for repair, 2nd, HDD wipe from all the freeze resets. Shouldn't it be my choice which system I want to buy any game for? MS pissed me off with their practices and I STILL bought the console. Now, I refuse due to all that crap AND the non-games related focus. I'm getting PS4 on day ONE
stuna1  +   996d ago
In my opinion they'll need a miracle and about two 50 mega ton nuclear weapons to bomb both Sony and Nintendo headquarters! Because their console has pretty much crashed and burned.

It was pretty bad. PS4 all the way. I was prepared to possibly be swayed in Microsoft's direction but ended up being more sure on the PS4.
HmongAmerican  +   996d ago
To me it seem like MS rushed out to counter SONY Feb PS4 revealed. That's why we don't get to see more games on today MS XBOX revealed. They only show CG trailer which mean those exclusives game are not ready yet and MS better not rush them out too.
rainslacker  +   995d ago
They pushed their show back a month in response to the PS4 reveal. Not really what I would call rushing. What they did in that extra month is beyond me.

Honestly it seems with MS being 6 months behind in game production, that they are trying to get to market as soon as possible. The lack of focus on games, the over showing of what is a secondary feature, and the complete glossing over of the actual hardware leads me to believe that MS was wholly unprepared for Sony to announce or launch this year.
Simco876  +   996d ago
I don't know why they didn't wait till E3, it's so close. Xbox One looks boring and ugly. Hope games are good for those that are buying it, I won't be.

I've been on this website since like 2003/2004 when it was a separate site still, I no longer have my original name and haven't posted a comment in probably almost 4 years. I had to make an account to talk about how utterly disappointing this was. I bought an xbox 360 on day one and didn't even think about a PS3 til they dropped the price in like 2008.

What was that? Xbox One? No games? All the cable stuff? Microsoft you lost me big time with this one. I wasn't sure if I was even going to buy another console this gen, but you've confirmed if I do PS4 is the way to go. Wow. "For gamers" uh huh...

Wii U is a gaming console. That gives it some major points.

Oddly enough, some of the media features MS showed are available on the Wii U. I'm not sure how well they work, or if they're as know...because I use my console to play games and all...but still Nintendo is about games more than anything else.

I really don't understand why they are trying so hard with this TV media box thing. Most people I know have at least some devices that provide the same functionality. I already have two Tivo's and a brand new Smart TV so while the Xbox One has some cool functionality it's no incentive for me to buy one.
I was waiting to see something that would really enhance the gaming experience beyond what a PS4 and PC can do and I didn't see it.

Only thing I am happy about is the media is actually not covering up MS this time and its pretty unanimous that MS dropped the ball. Only thing I can make out of this on MS part is they WANTED to get all this out the way before E3 to actually focus on the games etc so I guess can wait to pass total judgement on xbox. However they just gave Sony more fuel and the right to have more momentum towards E3 and possibly more sales in pre-orders.
