The Microsoft Press Conference Will Shut You Up

Dan writes - "If you’ve been living under a rock, the Xbox One console has been announced and shown but to the dismay of gamers everywhere, their announcement conference at the Xbox campus in Redmond was filled with more things to get the normal person to buy an Xbox One. Rather than focus on the games to appease the gamers, Microsoft took the approach to show off the Xbox One’s media side and show it’s ability to play television and all of the things our set top boxes have been doing for years. The vocal group of gamers ran to their twitter, facebook, forums, and other outlets to voice their concerns about how Microsoft had abandoned the gamers. Considering these consoles were created to play games on, the lack of games was very disappointing.

MS could pop up on stage with 15 exclusives/ new studios and certain folks still would complain

Limit7601154d ago

That's what bothers me. People will find a way to hate on everything. Why can't we just enjoy when new things come out. Sure I didn't care for the PlayStation 3, but I am hopeful about the PlayStation 4. I want all the consoles to succeed because it benefits us all.

DarkBlood1154d ago (Edited 1154d ago )

the major issue regarding the kinect,always online fiasco cablebox features overshadows everything else about it for me

so it wont shut me up as the headline would suggest

so unless all that is not going to happen im not excited for the games they will show

Darrius Cole1154d ago (Edited 1154d ago )

Except that it will hurt us if the Xbox One succeeds in it current form.

The Xbox one will make gaming less convenient, and more expensive, and more restrictive at the same time, unless Microsoft changes its policies.

EDIT:

I forgot more intrusive with it ever-watchful Kinect.

EDIT:

And the once per 24 hour internet check-in requirements

DragonKnight1154d ago

The thing to consider is that "15 exclusives" doesn't really mean anything. There was an E3, either last year or the year before, where MS said they had 10 exclusives and they turned out to be Kinect shovelware.

With Microsoft's reveal, their direction for the Xbox One looks to be fairly obvious. Right down to the time of day they decided to air it, and even the television channel, the Xbox One is a device that's not meant for gamers. The thing is, gamers would have been the one to look for the conference and the largest audience actually watching it. What else did Microsoft expect to happen then?

E3 will come, and if past history is an indicator then no one should get their hopes up from MS' conference. Coupled with what we already know, it's not hard to see why MS has been getting so much hate.

MikeMyers1154d ago

No matter what Microsoft shows it still won't shut up some people. I want to see the full picture before I act like an entitled child whining and crying all day.

It's now Microsoft's job to compell us to why we need Kinect on. Why we should be connected. Why having all content attached to our profiles is better. If they can do that people won't care Kinect is always, that they need to be connected to the internet. The system is still going to be very much a games machine.

JokesOnYou1154d ago (Edited 1154d ago )

No sadly no matter what they show the SAME ones will hate, but if they dont show me at least 5 or 6 interesting games that I want (not COD or kinect kiddie games) then I will be pissed...and I'll pass on X1 until Im satisfied it has some great games.

DragonKnight1154d ago

@Mike: Who are you kidding, you know that the uninformed masses already don't care that Kinect is always on. It's quite obvious Microsoft are targeting them. And then you have this...

"No matter what Microsoft shows it still won't shut up some people."

Right here you're attempting to diffuse anything negative anyone would have to say about MS after E3 pre-emptively. It is beyond your grasp that people simply don't care what kind of reasoning that Microsoft comes up with because they DON'T want to have a system that shuts down if the internet connection they have isn't up to snuff (think about that Cloud gaming solution you're so proud of. SimCity is going to be a part of Xbox One, mark my words, and it will be always-online because of the cloud. So if you think the Xbox One WON'T be always online, you'll see).

Or they don't like the idea of having a camera always listening (yeah yeah, it's listening for cues, but don't you think it has to have filtering software to distinguish the cues from the rest of what's being spoken?) because MS has proven they will listen in on Skype so they can't be trusted to not listen in on Kinects.

Maybe they don't like the idea that they can't really share their games in the traditional sense, that so many loops have to be jumped through to do something so simple. Microsoft gives convenience in one area that pleases the casual audience and removes it in another that's detrimental to their early adopters.

But no, anyone who has these problems is a whiny, entitled child right? Yeah. Well you go on believing Microsoft has your best interests in mind. Don't complain later.

yesmynameissumo1154d ago

This has been said for the past 3 E3s for MS. Keep saying it, maybe it will be true this time!

r1sh121154d ago (Edited 1154d ago )

Sometimes its just too easy to pick on things that were not talked about.
But.. I 100% agree that the xbox one reveal was pure s**t.
However MS's invites did say do not expect games etc.
My issue is, for a mainstream console why was the information about what it can do more to do with tv?
Yes E3 is about games but MS have not really used E3 very well in the past few years so why hide behind that excuse?

I am very sceptical about kinect, for the console to turn on by voice command, it needs to be listening all the time.
That is absolutely nuts!

I absolutely love my xbox 360, but in the past few years MS have lost their way.
Even though they always wanted to take over the living room, I think the living room has changed.
More people watch tv on laptops and tablets Ms seem to have forgotten that.

MS can show all 15 games at E3 but with such a dismal start and hate I find it hard to see how they recover.
I am still going to see the exact info about kinect, always online etc.. but its looking like MS has shot themselves in the foot.

SilentNegotiator1154d ago

Considering that the main issues are mandatory kinect and DRM, I HIGHLY doubt the people upset with Xbox One will be appeased by E3 (unless they announce a reversal of those policies).

Blacktric1154d ago (Edited 1154d ago )

"Why can't we just enjoy when new things come out"

If you think that people who are showing their distaste regarding the sh*tty DRM and used game policies of Microsoft are being irrational and should just calm down and "enjoy" things, I got nothing to else to say to you.

Studio-YaMi1154d ago

Is this a joke article !?

You didn't care for the Playstation 3,you want people to enjoy a new console that has DRM & blocking used games policies & based highly on TV entertainment that is only focused on America for the time being with a gimmicky way of controlling to cater to the casual crowd(Kinect)... and then you actually have the nerve to state an immature/bold statement that the Microsoft press conference will shut "me/us" up ?

At least know what you're talking about and show me that you're not just kissing up to MS for me to take you seriously.

Good day to you !

MikeMyers1154d ago (Edited 1154d ago )

@DragonKnight
"Who are you kidding, you know that the uninformed masses already don't care that Kinect is always on. It's quite obvious Microsoft are targeting them."

Does it matter if it's grandma or a 35 year old tech wizard or a 13 year old? You seem to really think highly of yourself. Early adopters are usually the ones who read up on what the product offers.

""No matter what Microsoft shows it still won't shut up some people.""
"Right here you're attempting to diffuse anything negative anyone would have to say about MS after E3 pre-emptively."

No I'm not. I am simply using sarcasm from the topic header. The topic title is the conference will shut them out. I disagree, it won't. Prove me wrong. Did I say they have to shut up? No, you and other are totally free to mention your concerns.

"It is beyond your grasp that people simply don't care what kind of reasoning that Microsoft comes up with because they DON'T want to have a system that shuts down if the internet connection they have isn't up to snuff (think about that Cloud gaming solution you're so proud of. SimCity is going to be a part of Xbox One, mark my words, and it will be always-online because of the cloud. So if you think the Xbox One WON'T be always online, you'll see)."

That's fine. Not everyone bought Simcity. Nobody was forced to buy it and I imagine those uninformed people you think that buys this stuff actually knew it required a connection. Kind of contradicts your generalizations because somehow you have it in your mind everyone who does know wouldn't buy it. That's not true at all. Did you ever stop to think that some people just don't care as much or aren't as passionate about this stuff as you, but are also well informed consumers? Probably not because of your arrogant attitude and narrow points of views thinking everything is so black and white.

"Or they don't like the idea of having a camera always listening (yeah yeah, it's listening for cues, but don't you think it has to have filtering software to distinguish the cues from the rest of what's being spoken?) because MS has proven they will listen in on Skype so they can't be trusted to not listen in on Kinects."

Again, I tend to think most people don't care. If they are concerned that much they can simply unplug the system.

"Maybe they don't like the idea that they can't really share their games in the traditional sense, that so many loops have to be jumped through to do something so simple."

You don't even know how it will all work yet. All we have heard are little tidbits of information. Nothing is set in stone yet, this can all easily be changed with software.

This could also be a case like Steam where they like what the product offers and are willing to forgive some of it's freedoms they used to have. Or just maybe some people want to know what the full details are since it will have used games and allow selling games.

"But no, anyone who has these problems is a whiny, entitled child right? Yeah. Well you go on believing Microsoft has your best interests in mind. Don't complain later."

Not really. Many people, including yourself have brought up real concerns. A whiny child is one who keeps repeating themselves while trying to drown out others and calling everyone idiots for even considering pre-ordering this thing. Or one who doesn't want to listen, doesn't want to know all the details and has already made up their mind and is unwilling to bend at all.

SpinalRemains1154d ago (Edited 1154d ago )

XOne and its restrictions and fees hurt us all.

What about this do ppl still not get?

These new rules win, and we all lose.

This isnt sony vs MS for cryin out loud. Its gamers vs corporate control.

Wake up, guys

alien6261154d ago

they always say that before E3...so far disappointments

thechosenone1153d ago

I thought the conference on the 21st was supposed to have done that..no?

I'm sorry but the strict DRM/always online and blocking of used games has told me all I need to know about the xBone. Not interested.

MrChow6661153d ago (Edited 1153d ago )

Limit760: finally some common sense in this troll lair

hiphopisdead1153d ago

nobody should be comparing ps4 and xbox one using only their reveal.

ps4 focused on games... but of course they'll have apps (netflix, youtube, nfl sunday ticket, youtube, +) and internet and much more and do it better than ps3.

xbox one focused on entertainment... but of course they'll have games to show and do it better than 360.

I'm sure both will have great entertainment and games...

However, I prefer the PS4 because of their exclusive games and studios.

Sony has great momentum for their exclusive studios from current gen to next gen: Guerilla games, naughty dogg, quantic dreams, polyphony digital, sucker punch, media molecule, evolution and more.

Microsoft doesn't have as strong a momentum built from previous gen to next gen of strong proven development teams. Their biggest, bungie, is gone, and sitting with Sony now (revealing gameplay at sony's e3 conference).

Since both consoles will play third party games just fine... and since both consoles will be able to do entertainment well (movies, netflix, internet, sharing...) exclusives really make the difference for me. Missing out on Guerilla Games' or Santa Monica's next projects would suck.

NewMonday1153d ago

right now the biggest turn-offs about the XB1 are not the lack of games at the reveal..

* always on Kinect camera watching AND listening, I'm the kind of guy that blocks the camera on my laptop with a bandaid, so this is a nonstarter for me.

* DRM, it is happening, I buy many games, but I also borrow and lend and sell to fund other purchases, with DRM I can't afford that, that means I can't afford the XB1.

I can't even look beyond these 2 issues, even if the XB1 could have 100's of exclusives.

fr0sty1153d ago (Edited 1153d ago )

You're damn right they'd still complain, and with good reason! You can pile 1000 bad ass games into that conference, and it won't change the fact that the system flat out sucks. DRM, always-on requirements, a mandatory Kinect spying on you, no upgradeable internal hard drive, weaker hardware, these are the kinds of flaws no amount of Master Chiefs or Marcus Fenix's can fix. As the saying goes, you can't polish a turd.

It'll take a complete about face by MS, dropping all of those BS policies in order to convince the gaming public their system isn't crap.

YNWA961153d ago

If this device was called the AppleOne, there would be none of this fuss, and it would be called the future....

gedapeleda1153d ago

I think many of the xbox users will go over to the other side of the fence. Because mainly the butthurt wars have ended, people will realize what is the true master race.

Kaneda1153d ago

I don't think people find way to complain about PS4 now.

+ Show (20) more repliesLast reply 1153d ago
Mr_Nuts1154d ago

Well I would if there always online, no pre owned games and Kinect is mandatory is still in place. Giving me games which I'll play on for a few weeks isn't going to cover the main long term problems of the Xbox One because it will lead other gaming companies to do the same since they think we're (us gamers) are fine with it.

I'm not letting my guard down because I don't want this to get worse. If you see a weed in your garden and leave it then whats going to happen...your going to get more weeds until your entire garden is ruined.

FlyingFoxy1153d ago

Just like MS planted the bad seed known as DLC which you pay for.. and it stuck.

Prcko1154d ago

We are people,we always complain :)))

Tyre1154d ago (Edited 1154d ago )

@PRcko your mentality is the start of all troubles. Because of people like you Microsoft thought they could push those horrible features down our throats without any protest or trouble. Guess what? No more mentalities like this. We must realise we have the power to change it. Stay vocal and do not buy into this con. What MS is doing is illegal & against Human rights. Our future as gamers will not be determine by the agenda of Microsoft. Not many gamers want these draconian DRM features and a 3D object scanner/biometrics scanner/voice profiling CCTV that is recording everything you do in your living room if you play. These features are THE BADDEST and MOST DANGEROUS DEVELOPMENT IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND. It will effect EVERYBODY. Other Companies/Governments will be very happy with the info on people's private lives. This is just ridiculous. NOBODY should buy this for the sake of the future. Do not listen to the lies of MS about the Kinect "off" function because it is still mandatory to have it on, you should have the option to have it off all the time and be able to use the controller only( to make sure MS isn't recording anything in 'hidden'features). There is no privacy with such a camera in your living room. I do not care for the XBOX anymore if MS doesn't revoke those horrible features. No gamer has anything to profit from this. This has nothing to do with being critical or a fanboy. Don't you people realise the bigger picture here? It is all stuff we don't need. THINK of the consequences people. Don't be ignorant or already numbed. Guess people are easily saturated. This is VERY serious shit.

jb2271154d ago

i have no doubt that xbox will reveal some amazing games come e3, but it's the drive to reveal them that kinda upsets me....they've went 2 whole generations with very little in the way of exclusive content, but now they put out a box that is very anti consumer, enough to the point where privacy & security companies are even bashing them, so they have to have games to lure people to "deal with it"....they could have the greatest games in the history of the genre on the box & i still would never buy it....because the only reason they are focusing on games at all is in order to get people to buy these ridiculous features they are putting out....so hopefully the reveal will shut no one up, that the people upset about these practices won't let these shiny new games entice them to just roll over

Infamouskat1154d ago

8 of those 15 exclusives are new IP's, and all those new 8 IP's are kinect games. So that leaves 7 old IP's, not very promising.

Convas1153d ago

Source?

Surely you speak so authoritatively because you have a source, correct?

stage881154d ago

Yes, even if they did show 15 exclusives I'd still not buy it.

1. Underpowered
2. Have to log in every 24 hrs to play a game
3. Have to pay to play used games
4. Camera always watching and listening in your house.

What's your point?

Godmars2901154d ago

Given that we're talking about the beginning of the console's cycles, how much power a system has means nothing.

What should be a concern, besides the technical always online, are XBL price hikes. Whether or not MS creates separate tears between gaming and TV, or they just make $10 to $15 per month standard. Go the other way and make it $70 to $80 or more a year.

r1sh121154d ago

underpowered?
Explain?

The xbox one is similar to the ps4, the only significant difference being ram.
They are both x86 tech

waltercross1154d ago

@ r1sh12

Ram and GPU, PS4 has a Modified GPU.
Also the PS4 Ram is much more than the PC Version that's in the XBO. over all 50% more powerful.

But right now the PS4 being more powerful than the XBO is the least of XBO's problems.

chrismichaels041154d ago

If MS shows up on stage with 15 new IP blockbuster exclusives...that would be great. But lets be honest. Based on MS's track record for the last few years, chances are still stronger that the majority of those 15 new exclusives will be $10 arcade games and casual kinect gimmick games.

The problem with this article is that we already spent the last few weeks hearing "wait until May 21st". May 21st came and went and people were still not impressed by MS so now the new excuse has been changed to "Wait until E3". What happens if MS fails at E3 too? "Wait until launch"? "Wait until the XBOXone's 1 year anniversary"? Gamers are complaining because they are tired of waiting and tired of excuses.

titletownrelo1154d ago

I remember during this generation of consoles, 360 users would bash and hate on PS3 users, while at the same time claiming their "superiority". Now the tables have turned as PS4's future looks immensely brighter than the Xbox One's, and now Xbox fanboys say, "Why you guys hating."

FragMnTagM1154d ago

Please do not speak for everyone. I leaned more towards the 360/PC this gen, and I am not buying an XBOX One, nor I am not asking why people are hating.

The games can be the best games ever, but I do not think I will ever buy one due to their new policies. I will stick with PC and maybe get a PS4 if they don't pull a Microsoft. Also, I may get a Wii U when the good Nintendo first parties come swinging.

I will not support what Microsoft is pushing right now. I am fine with having a Kinect to compliment my experience, but NOT OK with it being literally on all the time. I am also not OK with the used games situation.

If any console does that I simply will not buy it. I already have to deal with it on the PC, why would I want that B.S. on any other system? That was one of the appealing aspects of the consoles with being able to borrow and lend games to friends.

Krew_921154d ago

@FragMnTagM

He isn't speaking for everyone, but that sure as heck was the majority some 5 years ago...

Campy da Camper1154d ago

Agreed. Being a Sony fan on n4g in 2008-2010 was brutal. Back in the days of the "open zone" I would get death threats, name calling and flat out harassment. Had to change user names a couple times. Now, the tides have turned.

Simon_Brezhnev1154d ago

I'm sorry its hard to get excited for microsoft press conference when the last 3 years been pure shit. Last year all of the big 3 was garbage. If you got fooled 3 times straight and still believe in them i dont know what to say.

AngelicIceDiamond1154d ago (Edited 1154d ago )

What it should say is. "The Microsoft Press Conference Will Shut You Fanboys Up.

I dunno how many times MS has confirmed how it will come heavy with games (countless times it seems).

And already announced 5 games that'll be there at the show.

Fanboys will do what they do best, troll complain and cry. With the ALMIGHTY disagree button at their disposal lol.

EDIT: just look at Majins sorry little fan kiddy comment. Everyone knows Kinect can be turned off, MS announced they won't charge a fee for used games and guess what... The console can be turned off? Whaat?

http://127.0.0.1:1886/start...

Hmm its not always online either?

http://127.0.0.1:1886/start...

Mr_Nuts1154d ago

Why do people think it's all about fanboys, I keep getting the impression that anyone who complains is automatically a fanboy. I'm not, I never saw the point of choosing one console of choice when I'd rather enjoy the games each console has to offer but you can pick between right and wrong and I'm sorry but what the Xbox One is doing is wrong to the industry as a whole...your not a fanboy for speaking out but I really feel this is why many people don't speak up because they are afraid they are going to get called for it.

*** I dunno how many times MS has confirmed how it will come heavy with games (countless times it seem). ***

But they've said this before and then look what happens. There has been a number of people on here posting past pre E3 articles about these "new" games Microsoft are going to reveal but then the E3 show is then a letdown.

Angeljuice1154d ago

The Xbone is designed from the ground up as a Microsoft money making machine. Sure all consoles are designed to make money, but the Xbone is just Microsoft pushing the idea as far as possible. If they control your tv, they control the advertising on it. They want to get revenue when you sell YOUR game. It's a test-bed for new ideas in revenue streams. If you're happy to be a gineapig in their attempt to see just how far they can push people into giving them money, feel free, but don't have a go at the people who are wise enough to not like what they're seeing coming over the horizon!

isarai1154d ago

Because it's not even about the lack of games, it's the requirement of online, online DRM, and kinect requirement along with many other cons. They can show as many games as they want it doesn't fix those other issues

zeroskie1154d ago

what if 10 of those are kinect titles?

Hicken1154d ago

Sorry, but 15 exclusives(and let's be real: you can expect around five of them to be for Kinect) doesn't make everything else go away.

And people are complaining about everything else; the games-or lack thereof- are just icing on a very negative cake.

SpinalRemains1154d ago

Oh its a feces cake.

This isnt fanboy stuff.
Its ethics.

Sony3601153d ago (Edited 1153d ago )

Agreed. 15 exclusives are nice (unless most of them turn out to be kinect only, and given that you are FORCED to use kinect, it's a possbility), but the fact you are forced to pay all these extra costs won't go away.

Adding 15 exclusives to an anti-consumer console just like putting polish on a turd. It's an improvement, but it's still just a polished turd.

plaZeHD1154d ago

Exactly people don't know what the word "WAIT" actually means. Wait for E3 2013. MicroSoft can take you by surprise, unexpectedly.

Utalkin2me1153d ago

Take me by suprise by saying pretty much everything we showed at reveal is false? Like no DRM, No Kinect having to be connected, No 24 hours checks, No Ads?

Now that would truly take me by suprise.

The_Infected1154d ago (Edited 1154d ago )

They can say anything on stage whether its true or not is the big question. Another words they better show things and not promise without showing them.

SonyPS41154d ago

MS could ditch DRM and people would still complain only because it's Xbox and MS which would be stupid. I bash the XOne because of its DRM but MS might fool me this E3, and hopefully so. I really want an XOne, but as long as it has the anti-used games and 24-hour DRM I will not buy one. If Sony follows suit, no PS4 for me either.

GT671154d ago (Edited 1154d ago )

"MS conference will shut you up"

all im going to say about the matter at hand:

"IT'S TOOOOOOOOOOO LATE FOR RECOVERY"

MS you can't shove this Historic blunder under a rug and press RE-START button.

NextGen24Gamer1154d ago

That's all MS needs to do! Show of exclusives and high quality 3rd party games with timed exclusive content and GUESS WHAT? They will keep a large majority of their xbox 360 core fans! Who cares if you don't convert sony fans over! MS will retain their core fans and they will add additional fans with the ALL IN ONE concept! Very very smart move by MS! Make your fan base happy with exlusives and bring in new gamers with added features! Sony did a great job appeasing their core fans! At this point its not about stealing your competitors fans, its about making your base happy! Sony has done a better job at this point...but after E3 I feel both fan bases will be very happy! Which is a win win being since they both have the same amount of fans worldwide at this point! I'm just happy I'm not chosing a side and I'm going to enjoy both console offerings!

killacal131154d ago (Edited 1154d ago )

The issue here is not the games, it's the fact that its got to be connected, its got to be kinnected, DRM, its a set top box that needs a set top box, still needs pay to play online, and its slightly less powerful than the competition, answer me this, why will YOU still buy it after what I said? HA, I typed the same as the homie Majinvegeta

Christopher1153d ago

Yes, people would still complain. But, this author shows the other end of the spectrum: blind loyalty through the fact that he honestly believes it will be good without having any real proof to it.

Honestly, I'm not sure either company is going to be winning me over anytime soon. I'd love to be surprised.

S2Killinit1153d ago

Its interesting that some people seem to be assuming that the people complaining are upset because they think that MS will not have any games. That is not the case. People are upset because the reveal demonstrated very clearly, that the focus of MS is not on gaming. How can a console reveal that is supposed to be a gaming machine, have a reveal that is not about gaming? Who is MS's main target group? MS's game-plan during the current generation was to come out the gate with plenty of must have games like Gears of War, and then about halfway through the generation they stopped catering to their core gamers and focused on casuals and applications. This is going to be their strategy thing time around and core gamers who buy into it will suffer a second time. MS will have a lot of good games to show at E3 but that will not be telling of their overall plans for gamers, and that is the real problem. (aside from all the other anti consumer stuff of course)

MonkeyNinja1153d ago

The issue isn't even about the conference, neither is it about the games. It's about:

- Having to connect every 24 hrs
- Not being able to share your games with friends
- Some form of used game fees
- Kinect must be on (they say you can turn it off, but it doesn't mean anything if you can't unplug it, especially after Skype situation)
- Still have to pay for XBox LIVE just to do anything online

There's several other points too, like that the controller still uses batteries, or how several of those 15 exclusives may be Kinect-based, but if you actually read comments about XBone on ANY site, even XBox sites, you'll see that the games aren't the issue. They can have 100 non-Kinect exclusives and I still wouldn't buy it. And I did have an original Xbox and a 360, so I'm not just some blindly loyal-unto-death fanboy.

Utalkin2me1153d ago

People just don't get it's not about games anymore with MS. Just cause they show games doesn't mean all the other stuff is going to go away. You think cause they show games all of the sudden DRM is going to go away? Or what about Kinect having to be connected and always on?

People are having a hard time to understand this goes way beyond games. I don't care if they show 50 exclusives at E3. It's what the X1 does and stands for i will not support it.

VegasDawg1153d ago

Though I'm leaning towards the PS4 for now, I have to say those 15 exclusives have gotten my interest peaked.As long as they aren't kinect shovel ware.

ShwankyShpanky1153d ago

That should be "interest piqued."

piqued (past participle, past tense of pique)
Verb
Stimulate (interest or curiosity)

Not meant to be a dig... most people get it wrong... just spreading some knowledge.

3-4-51153d ago

I love xbox. own both of them and 360 controller is IMO the best ever created.

That being said, I was really disappointed with Xbox One reveal.

I'm interested in playing games.

I already have tv...fantasy sports already has 5+ ways you can play it and interact.

I already watch Sportscenter/ESPN....

The thing is...I can view those things in 5-6 different rooms in my house.

I can only watch tv/ play games at the same time on 1 of 6 tv's.

It limits where you can do it and view it.

* A better solution would to give it wheels, and have it be wirelessly connected to Cable TV and internet.

That way you could movie it about your house to any room you want easily.

Here's my problem with their numbers. They said 15 Exclusives, half of which would be new IP's...leaving the other half to sequels.

Let's be conservative here and simply say 7 are sequels. We all know that's one Halo, likely a new Gears, Forza, I'm betting on a couple returnees from the Kinect lineup; Dance Central and Sports. That leaves 2 (maybe 3 other sequels).

Now this isn't so much of a problem if it weren't for Microsoft's vernacular changes on what is an Xbox One game. EVERYTHING is an Xbox One game. They've stated there will be no segregation of retail and online games, full or (formerly known as) XBLA titles. So we could be looking at some smaller micro games.

It doesn't look horrible, but when Sony is offering some 30+ exclusive games year-over-year...and that's before we even get into the PS4 lineup, it looks a little thin. Certainly there's some cause for concern.

The exclusives wouldn't change what people are complaining about.

Well doing that still wouldn't address all the extra fees and anti-consumer nonsense that is coming with the console, so yes, you are right. Just lose the implication that it wouldn't be justified complaining.
