GameSpot: Kevin ruminates on whether Microsoft actually revealed anything surprising when announcing the Xbox One. The most remarkable aspect of Microsoft’s Xbox One reveal was how utterly unremarkable it was. It was a predictable rundown of Kinect swipe gestures, media partnerships, and interface features, with a few games thrown in to remind us that the Xbox One’s key demographic is young men into sports, cars, and online shooting. There was little I didn’t expect--and it was this predictability that disappointed me most about the console’s reveal. The moment I most hoped for was the one that would surprise me. I craved the unexpected, the game that would make our jaws drop, the announcement that would make it all worthwhile, the feature that would make the Xbox One a sure win. It never came. And suddenly, I feel less optimistic about the future of game consoles than I did before the conference.
