Xbox One: Microsoft's Mixed Messages

IGN: "Confusion reigns in the wake of the Xbox One reveal yesterday. Cast an eye over the games news today, and there are conflicting reports about everything from shared accounts to pre-owned to the nature of the console’s online requirement. The event itself was boldly top-line – here’s what it looks like, here’s what it does, here’s how it changes things – but in attempting to present a simple message, so much crucial information was glossed over that total confusion and speculation have sprung up like weeds in the cracks in our knowledge. The Xbox One is supposed to be an easy-to-understand, all-in-one solution – but currently Microsoft’s messaging is anything but unified." (Xbox One)

I think Microsoft is so delusional that they really believed people would be excited for this thing. And it really IS an exciting console....for third party devs and media conglomerates like EA, NFL, and Activision. It offers all the control, all the advertisement, all of the intrusive nonsense that they've been wanting. The system is basically set up to say, "I noticed you've been playing Call of Duty Ghost. Have you bought the map packs? Have you bought the new masks? Have you bought these four other shooters? Simply say 'Xbox buy' and I'll starting downloading them all for you".

Disgusting. The fact that it's an all-in-one box and not focused on gaming alone is a bit irritating, but the fact that they are Trojan horse-ing the Xbox brand, leveraging gamers, leveraging Halo (a TV show?!) to push their agenda should make gamers everywhere sad.

Microsoft seemed afraid of even MENTIONING the thing would have games on it.
