Darrin Wright of The Game Fanatics gives his two cents on the reveal of Microsoft's new console. To say he's looking forward to it would be inaccurate.

I too am unimpressed. As a 3D modeler and texture artist working on games for hopefully the PS4 and XboxOne, and strictly as a gamer, this announcement was underwhelming.

To start, the name is kinda bad. One? You mean the original xbox? Idunno... not a very firm name. Secondly, if the used games thing is true, I wont be able to play my friends games once they're done with it without paying a fee or some sort. Shady microsoft. Third, where are the damn games today? Most of the announced games are also coming for PS4!

Jesus, get your crap together! Kinect?! Sports?! TV?! These people youre targeting as a main demographic are NOT going to buy the Xbox One on the first day! The HARDCORE GAMERS are! Where are the damn games!?

Yeah, e3 is around the corner, but you call this a conference?!

Dlacy13g1104d ago

lol... not that I am happy about the implications of all this but I had to laugh...

What is more shady in reality?

a) Not buying a game and just playing it for free because a friend gave it to you.

b) asking the consumer to pay for the game they are playing.

and nobody called it a conference... it was called a reveal. Which is pretty much what they did.

Is that a serious question? Are you joking? Now we can't lend a game to our friends and family? How is that shady? Are our friends and family doing something illegal because they borrowed a game from us?

Why I'm Unimpressed?

no games shown, weak specs, ugly design, casual driven... and the list goes on

I get your point, but in my defense, isnt that what gaming is about? The community, the friends, playing together? Think about it, if a friend shares a game with me that I have never played, and I liked it, dont you think I'd want to buy the sequel to that said game?

Same thing happened with Uncharted or Assassins creed. Never really played them when they came out, but I decided I would try, so i borrowed a friend's game and loved it. Bought Uncharted 3 and bought Assassins Creed.

Also, yeah it was a reveal (though some could say it was a reveal conference lol), but I personally think they shouldnt reveal anything if they dont have much going for it. Who knows? Maybe if they waited, they would have a megaton announcement that just blows everyone else out of e3. Thats all :]

Design + Exclusive Games + Console Name + Presantation

The name is terrible and can be confusing. The unveiling of the console today was lackluster. The console design itself is boring and unimaginative. And television use is declining with Netflix and Hulu type options. I think we all knew Microsoft was going to go a more entertainment centered approach, but I was expecting more and they need more.

Most hardcore gamers are going to be choosing the Playstation 4 this year because it is the system with games at the core. Nobody cares about these fantasy stats or snap windows on the side of my television.. many people own smartphones which can easily be used to find this info - without losing screen real estate.

Sorry don't like it just what I think they really didn't go to think of a better name
