React Episode 7: Is Xbox One The Gamers System?

Gary Swaby of TheKoalition.com writes: Microsoft has set the world on fire with their Xbox One reveal earlier today. Their reveal has sent the interwebs into a frenzy, and we're seeing mixed reactions from games worldwide. But what does the staff at The Koalition think? We decided we would do what we do best and record a React podcast with a few guest enthusiasts.

The first thing that became evident to me was that Microsoft were clearly going for more of a universal approach with the console, in the sense that they aren't just trying to cater to the gamer. The Xbox 360 clearly started out as the gamers console, and it evolved over time into a mini media hub. Microsoft have now continued that tradition in a bigger way with the Xbox One. However they promised us 15 exclusive games in the consoles first year of existence. So will the Xbox One still be the gamers choice? (Industry, Microsoft, Xbox One)

How can a podcast lose me in two minutes?

I actually thought it was pretty good. They were all interesting, and their opinions were unique. I'm sick of listening to podcasts where everyone has similar viewpoints. This was different. I'd listen to more of their stuff.

ONE console to rule them all!

Just a play on LoTR, It's more like ONE console to pass on.

no its the console that is meant to rip off gamers the most, i guess after E3 time to buy wiiu and buy ps4 at launch, i don't know about others but i still want my gaming console to deliver games

also that 15 exclusive in 1st year is a gimmick IMO, i wouldn't be surprised if most of those titles don't end up being kinect 2 titles

basically one game per account so no used games
system has to be online once every 24hrs even if you only play single player games

also MS seems more interested in getting the general crowd or TV crowd in to buy their system than actual gamers.

but let's see after E3 we will know everything

They barely showed games, and no game play... The paying for used games current rumor is bad news... They did not mention anything about b/c right now it's a no buy in my eyes

I believe it's a unanimous decision - gamers comes second with XBox ONE.

But unless the two main combatants are actually out with fixed prices, games other features we still don't know of, I'm going to give MS/XBox the benefit of the doubt.

For now anyway.

I have mixed feelings because:
1. Those TV features are US based.
2. My Apartment is small and that console looks huge, and don't get me started on Kinect.
3. There's a fee for using second hand games.
4. System must be connected once every 24hrs.

The only positive for me would be the controller.

Only good thing about the ONE is the badass controller. Other than that, I can't support this decision Microsoft has made regarding used games and having to be online once every 24 hours. I was seriously considering buying it until I heard all that nonsense. :( looks like its wiiu and ps4 for me.

Really I think the controller is horrendous. Looks like they wanted to make it like like the PS4 controller with Xbox's worthless D pads and arthritis inducing offset sticks.

I hate the name. I've been calling the 1st Xbox the Xbox 1.

What the hell am I supposed to do now?
SexyGamerDude  +   831d ago
Call it "The original Xbox" or just "Xbox".
iceman06  +   831d ago
Call it Xbox Classic...or Xbox Throwback...it worked for soft drink companies!!!
