"Last week was all about Microsoft and its new console, the Xbox One. We missed a big story, though. Comcast stepped up to the plate on the very same day with a new video for its own media monster. Meet… the X1." — Mike Futter, GameInformer
Confusion. Especially if they get Comcast to advertise the Xb1.
Looks like I cant use the X1 abbreviation for the Xbox One anymore.
@Godmars290 I just saw the commercial.
I've never seen a company of MSFT's caliber make so many boneheaded missteps in such a short period of time. I'm simply mindblown by the lack of preparation and lack of awareness when it comes to your target audience and their expectations. Oh well, with that said this year's E3 is going down as one of, if not the biggest of all time, sans any surprise videos from GG. :)
it's called arrogance.
LOL, new Xbox one totally new huh, watch these other new cable boxes pretty much do alot of the same things.
Lol it looks like microsoft was a year late to the cable party.
At least XBone will still get that dog and other rocket level science stuff, like fish AI
Dat fish ai
fish ai no bloddy way .. THEY MOVE OUT OF THE WAY D: waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaao *mind blown*
It ain't next gen if there isn't fish AI.
lol..this is too funny. Comcast...lol Nice try though. Samsung was doing it before they were....and it goes on and on. Xbox-one is the only one that's really affordable though. NG4 at it's best again.
But... IT'S TEH ROCKIT SCIENCE! How can anyone have this?
here. It's- It's is short for it is or it has. This is a 100% rule. It cannot be used for anything else. If you cannot expand it's to it is or it has, then it is wrong. Its- Its is like his and her. His is used for masculine things. (These are his pies.) Her is used for feminine things. (These are her flowers.) Its is used for neuter things. (These are its footprints.) @Saints94 lol. wasn't even to you, but okay!
Apologies, I'm new and this bubble thing gets kinda confusing with quotes.
It's always a bit douchey to correct punctuation on teh internetz influxity (which is a made up word in itself)
More proof that M$ is not an innovator they are an Imitator...
Just like sony invented the home console right...lol @Godmars290 below Not all by themselves but of course you guys here actually believe that. They din't double the market. That honor goes to nintendo. Sony bullied Nintendo and sega back in the day and now the tables have turned on them. They can't bully anyone anymore because they have less money as a result of their arrogance. That's goes for games as well as other areas. They aren't no.1 in anything anymore and they let a software company com in and take away the biggest game market from them with only their second console.
Just like they doubled the market you mean. No, they didn't create the market. What they did was mature it when it needed to be matured.
@Belking First of all SONY was developing hardware for Nintendo, before Ninty tried to backstab them and cut them out of the console, SONY decided to give it a shot and tossed their console onto the market. The rest is history. May I ask, why Microsoft is here?
Microsoft was working with Sega when word leaked out about MS working on a console. They figured why not and told Sega to suck it, which is when Sega released the last console they had designed known as the DreamCast, but it was too late. The excitement over a possible MS console meant that a lot of gamers waited to see what MS was bringing to the table. Add to that the fact that the PS1 was selling like hotcakes, and Sega's bad reputation of lacking support/confidence in it's previous consoles effectively sealed the fate of the DC. I miss the Sega of the Master System/Genesis days. =(
@Godmars290 Microsoft has done more for home computers than Sony has done for consoles... @Excalibur Sony tried to innovate this gen with Cell and look what happened...they duplicated and went the way most others develop consoles with PS4. Crazy how tech works...
Godmars290 double the market? theWB27 yes cell was a mistake no doubt but looking at exclusives i say it was worth it, and now they have GDDR5 while MS have GDDR3, i know nothing about Ram but i am told its a huge difference let's see, easy to develop for consoles is the way it should be, we shouldn't have to suffer slyrim,fallout new vegas on ps3 when we pay the same price so while cell did some things right, it was just too difficult
Yes. Doubled the market, at least. And yes, if it wasn't for Nintendo hiring them for a CD add on for the SNES then both of them screwing the other over repeatedly there wouldn't be a PS1. But if Nintendo had been left to its own devices they'd still be using carts and MS would be be coming at gaming more from a Steambox or AppleTV direction. After someone else came up with the idea.
M$ stole its OS from Apple. http://www.howstuffworks.co... Then tried to monoplies the market Why do you think all the new versions of windows are $h!t. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/w... M$ tries to buy every company that comes up with something new. http://hackaday.com/2011/07...
@clarence Slow people are sumthing else. you got disagreed off of pure truth. They so stupid they didn't even know they made a movie of this. Yet still support a non gaming company who got their start from stealing someone else shyt.
@theWB27 Like you are gonna see Blu-ray after half a decade in X1.
@Excalibur... clearly you don't know what you speak of but you keep on thinking that.
Ow here in canada cable provider rogers has the neXtbox2.0
Some of the replies are hilarious on N4G lol.
/Facepalm So who is going to sue who? I'm guess Comcast sues Microsoft? They came up with the name first and the features in their box are very similar to the Xbox One.
If so Microsofts is far superior....thread title and article is lame.
That logic... The Galaxy S4 is FAR superior to anything Apple has ever put out, guess they have to discontinue the Iphone.
These cable boxes have more features and more storage than the xbox one and are much cheaper. When they can stream games from (Gaikai, Nvidia, PC, etc) consoles will be long gone.
no it really means that consoles will be seen and use primarily for gaming, yes most phones have cameras and yes most phones can record video, that wouldn't stop someone from buying in HD camera and it definitely won't stop a photographer from purchasing a DSLR. being able to stream games won't make consoles obsolete it's almost as silly as saying something like Onlive will kill PC gaming and disregard subscription, latency issues or the idea that you don't technically own the game once the subscription is gone. the same goals for something like iPad games yes people love to play them didn't stop last generation from being one of the biggest in history for consoles (and still counting). if on lives performance is any indicator about how people see streaming with games you're clearly understand it's going nowhere other than a nice niche option. look at the Wii U look at Xbox one and look at the PlayStation 4 it's quite clear the consoles are here to stay. IF ANYTHING the more this become popular in normal see the more it won't be shoved in a game system as its "main feature". do you see phones advertising that they are mp3 players and also can be cameras? once these features become standard it's difficult for any company to really tote them as the "main features". the more this becomes popular and become something that almost every media playing device will do Microsoft will have much more of a difficult time selling their consoles as Media machines. if people want such a thing they could get a cable box or one of those smart TVs. very soon Microsoft might have to start selling just a game console something everybody's wanted them to do for a long time. lol.
This thing if far better than Xbone.
No need to fear being video recorded by my console when watching T.V, while having all the advantages of Xbox 1, besides the waving my hands in front of camera, is nice.
The Xbone isn't an actual cable box is it... You have to plug it into a cable box to take advantage of the TV features correct? So basically there's no point in the TV integration....at all. I'd be all for it if it were an actual cable box/ game system where you pay 60$ a year and you get all the channels cable companies get. That'd be a deal...but I don't think Microsoft is that generous nor do they have that set up.
I was wondering the same thing. What exactly is the advantage of the TV stuff? Is it to avoid having to buy a smart TV? Is is supposed to augment your TV viewing through cable or eventually replace it? I'm with you that if you could get Netflix, Hulu, and some sort of cable stuff for the price of Xbox Live subscription, then this thing would fly off the shelves. As is, it has some interesting/cool extras. But, when I play games...I play games. When I watch TV, I watch TV...and think about playing games.
MS is competing with cable companies now
This works like the Xbox in some ways.
X1 + Kinect = Xbox One
I have Comcast and am aware of their DVR services, however I never got it because of the monthly fees they charge. So with this device expect rental charges and flat monthly fees for this upgrade haha. While the XboxONE is a one time purchase with a $60/yr service, that is already better than what Comcast pricing offers. On top of that....the XBOX is more than just a DVR system...which people can't seem to see due to this hate train and fanboys raging
