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."

I'm still in shock.I was fully expecting them to drop bombs and megatons.Just..wow..
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.

Raccoon1076d ago (Edited 1076d ago )

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

SONY STOCK IS SHOOTING THROUGH THE ROOF 10%^ SO FAR...

abzdine1076d ago (Edited 1076d ago )

those guys don't care about us gamers, obviously!
now i am even more excited fr PS4 i know i will not be missing anything by only owning PS4 when i see what Xbox has in stock -_-
Disappointed.... i am very disappointed!

darx1076d ago (Edited 1076d ago )

Well if you are a gamer interested in games than the PC would be your better option.

Edit @ theBAWSE below...so will I!

nix1076d ago (Edited 1076d ago )

Truly a "slow news day".

#ONE/10.

Masta_fro1076d ago

I started watching late and thought Xbox One was the name of a live tv service on Xbox, not the name of the console...Go figure...

HammadTheBeast1076d ago

Wow. This is truly disappointing. I thought MS were done with the 'EXCLUSIVE..... DLC' BS, but they strike again, but wait...

Fantasy football off my game console, looks like next Gen is here lol.

stuna11076d ago

Sonys stock just shot through the roof!

guitarded771076d 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.

bicfitness1076d 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!

theBAWSE1076d ago

@darx gtfoutta here with that pc crap... I'll be playing last of us and gta while your preaching about pc

Xbox one was a waste of a conference an EA was mind numbingly bad.. Cgi videos and sports stars talking about... Sports

NatureOfLogic1076d ago

Well, I know which One I'm not getting.

aCasualGamer1076d ago

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....

Give me a f-----n break!

starchild1076d ago

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.

blackbeld1076d ago (Edited 1076d ago )

PS4 day one.

My wallet is ready for purchase.

WiiU I wait for Zelda in HD.

shoddy1076d ago

Lol today I laugh hard many times reading comments

gedapeleda1075d ago

Sony confirmed for master race.

The best conference Sony could've ask for ;)

FriedGoat1076d ago

Indeed, Someone actually posted that sonys stock went up by 9% during the conference... with proof.

Speaks for itself.

Blackdeath_6631076d ago (Edited 1076d 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

guitarded771076d ago

@ 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.

aCasualGamer1076d 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????

Calm Down Sunshine1076d ago

Agreed.

It actually made me appreciate the Xbox 360.

Studio-YaMi1076d ago

That should tell you something ! even the 360 is not as bad as this ! wow .. just wow !

FriedGoat1076d ago

of course it is, the 360 is at least 359 generations ahead.

dasbeer881076d ago

3.5 is a generous score. I would give this conference a 1.8.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1076d ago (Edited 1076d ago )

not shocked it MS.

Fuk MS!!!! Keep ur halo tv show.

if your a sony fanboy why do you care?

M-M1076d ago (Edited 1076d ago )

A lot of my friends are turning to the PS4 after what they've heard today. Guess what, they all owned only 360s.

CoolBeansRus1076d ago

Cooguy. Just because you say that it doesn't make it true. It sounds to me like you are trolling. I cant do the same thing, watch: "All my friends want the xbox after this conference." See, proves nothing. A bunch of trolls on this site.

andibandit1076d ago

I'm still in shock too, after watching that conference, but now i've watched the post show, with Major Nelson, and now im actually becomming more and more impressed.

g4me_he4d1076d ago

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.

s8anicslayer1076d ago

The Xbox One looks like The PS3, Original XBOX and my cable box had an affair and bore a love child!

aceitman1076d ago

I usually get all systems but this will be a pass for me. now I will only get ps4 and my wii u is looking a bit better right now.

s8anicslayer1076d ago

Honestly the only thing the Xbox one is missing is "wood trim" lmao!

Eyeco1076d ago

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

RE4PER-DE4TH1075d ago

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

IRetrouk1075d ago

No that would be the wii followed by the ps3.

miDnIghtEr20C_SfF1075d 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.

TheSurg1075d ago (Edited 1075d 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.

nosferatuzodd1075d ago

3.5 out of 10 while sony got 9/10 wow thats bad thats really bad

jakmckratos1076d ago

At least theyre getting a Halo TV series...oh wait that has nothing to do with the console..that shoulda been an E3 announcement.

DoomeDx1076d ago

It actually has alot to do with the console. Because the console is focussed on watching TV!

Merrill1076d ago

A feature only available to the US market at launch, pretty pointless. Especially as more and more people are moving away from cable subscriptions.

Raccoon1076d ago

But I already have a cable provider which I can instantly switch to console by pressing the source input on my projector...

Hellsvacancy1076d ago

I think the Halo "premium" tv thing is really dumb and is a con, like its going to be an incentive to purchase a subscription to XBL

darx1076d ago

It's worked for Starz, HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, Netflix and now possibly Amazon.

jjb19811076d ago

Booooooooooo! Some should have pulled whitten off stage with a cane to his neck and nancy tellem well.... Tellem nothing game related...

d0nT wOrrY1076d ago

They've a chance at e3 to make up for this terrible conference.

Salooh1076d ago

What do you expect from them in e3 ?. It will focus on kinect too just like this conference..

MysticStrummer1076d 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.

MysticStrummer1076d 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.

dedicatedtogamers1076d 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.

ZombieKiller1076d 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

stuna11076d 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.

gano1076d ago

whats at e3.
have people forgot about circus o le or sumtin,
usher, whats to wait for e3 for.
if its some games what, the same thing ps4 got.
