Neocrisis: During their reveal, they made their latest console sound like a cable box. Xbox One is trying to be the "All-in-One" for Microsoft but they forgot one major thing.
Seems like MS is marketing it like one. With all their presenter saying TV multiple times.
When you see it like this it doesnt leave much room for games http://www.youtube.com/watc...
No, it's not a cablebox...that's just angry gamer talk (guilty!), it's an entertainment box that plays games, and does other stuff that may or may not interest gamers . As I understand it, MS are channelling your existing cable services through the HDMI in port. So, you'll still have to pay your cable bills to your cable provider. Outside of XBL fee, I am unsure how MS will make money on this. MS are clearly banking on mass XBone adoption into as many households as possible. Whether these buyers are gamers or not, it's an expansion of their market. MS will do well to give the Xbox fan base that made MS a major player in this industry, a solid E3. Otherwise, Xbox gamers should do the right thing, and re-evaluate their commitment to the hardware they game on. #ps4andxb1playsgames
I have been wondering if the right hand side of the Xone actually opens up so you can connect a Cam to recieve TV without the need for a cable box.
Well, you can't even use the TV features if you don't have cable. So technically, it's a cable box that also play games.
Technically you would be wrong. So, normally a cable box needs a cable box to work? No.... of course not. Xbox One is an interface that works with a cable box. And, it only works with cable boxes that have HDMI outputs.
why not a game console that has cable capabilities
No it is not! Their just making it easier for gamers to switch between their games and TV/cable via hdmi. I actually like the feature. Also Xbox will have original content on xbox live. Movies, tv series and whatnot. PS4 fanboys just need to take a break already.....
Wii U already does this with Nintendo Tvii and the gamepad and less intrusively.
Technically Not Practically Yes Xbone the real Tv simulator.
No its a water cooler
As long as I can hook up my over the air TV and Receiver I am happy. MS has said that Over the Air TV will work so Iam good.
