Xbox One User Interface with Kinect was staged at reveal event
Hot garbage. Between the DRM and the dam Kinect commands not even able to work properly, Microsoft is urinating all over their core market and gamers and then having Phil Harrison say "don't worry, guys. Its only a sun shower. Rain is necessary to grow plants and such."
Who's shocked by this?? It's Microsoft remember MILO?? HAHA!!
I wanna work on Microsoft's PR department....such a safe job.
good news is u cant really do a worse job than they are doing allready can you?
was there any doubt? fake clapping and cheering, now this honestly who didn't expect this?
Ive been wondering who exactly were the people cheering and clapping all over the place at the XBONe reveal
Microsoft employee's that were located at the back of the room, what game it away? at the very start he said "xbox on" and people went tits, why would people be screaming etc about that, cant you not allready do that with kinect?
Huh........ the video looked fine to me. And the "information", I say this very very loosely, is the same rehashed stuff since the reveal. Did we need another topic on the same info? It would be like another "ps3 has 8 gb ram" topic. I cant believe I gave them a click.
Watch agian and when she switches to live TV(Dr. Oz, don't ask me how i know that.) It looks like it's buffering.
you can see when she snaps live tv, the video in the corner is really choppy and slow. not playing flawlessly and snapping in and out like in the demonstration in may. So i would imagine when your watching tv, music, and your game all at once like they "claim" will be able to be flawless and enjoyable the demo in the video gives light that it might not be as great as its made out to be. yeah i know its the demo product but still.
OMG a little static? Buffering? That's what the complaint is about? Hell my digital cable takes just a sec or two to get to the channels with a regular remote. Especially when I get to the Upper HD channels. But I digress, if they showed things instant then I guess it should be instant. But people acting like they are the first and "only" company to embellish on their design. Is it wrong, yes. Is it as drastic as some of these headlines make it seem, no.
Thought so, all those fake applauses and shouts of interests were a lie. So what could it be hiding then if not this.. Microsoft you should be ashamed of yourself!
Video just disproves the misleading title... Just another fanboy or down on it's luck crappy author looking hits.
Of course it was. Did anyone think they were showing a finished live system with fully working software with a kinect that could hear him in a room full of people? Really? I noticed at the time that he put his hand in his pocket each time he 'spoke' to the Xbox ( no doubt he had a clicker in his pocket ). It's just a well rehearsed presentation staged to show the likely user experience at home.
Exactly and I believe why the reveal was delayed a month was for them to rehearse this staged event over and over to get in sync. Microsoft didn't want to have another incident like they did with Kinect when Kudo trouted out there and his avatar got twisted into knots because the Kinect wasn't ready for primetime, it still isn't ready to this day and may never be, but i digress.
so true, he kept putting his hand in his pocket everytime he demonstrated a feature
Faked demos have become a MS tradition. It's debatable whether PS3's KZ2 target render video is in the same league, but Sony either doesn't go for that kind of fakery as often or they're much better at it than MS is.
The ps4 game demos ran on a top of the line PC dumb noobs these days
And those top of the line PC are used to simulate console hardware dumb noobs these days i swear
A PC built to PS4 specs, even approximate ones, is very different from simulating the OS to make it look like it runs better than it actually does. Deny it all you want.
anyone who thought otherwise and believed MS's BS please contact me I have this really nice bridge I am trying to sell.
didnt we all know this like 2 days after the event when people reported the dude speaking had a clicker in his pocket?
Ok, so let's say it was faked because the interface is slow and sucks. Who cares? It's not like this is related to anything about gaming anyways, it's just some crappy television service. Maybe we gamers shouldn't even talk about them at all. Act like MS hasn't even revealed their new console, stop upping their google rankings, etc.
Seriously, what is so wrong having a console that plays next-gen games that also have Skype & TV functions built-in??? Please explain. You guys and complainers harsh comments doesn't make sense to me at all. I am glad that Microsoft has added these features to their new console, freakin awesome in my book.
For one thing those TV functions aren't built in. Its a pretend cable box which has to be connected to a cable box to have actual cable box functions. For another its poised to be a marketing tool which isn't asking permission to gather information on you. Then there's the whole DRM online and used game issues. @Dlacy13g: I feel insulted to be asked that. Even though I've been more than identified as an Xbot. And a Playslave. And Wiiboo, or whatever Wii/WiiU fans are called. But no, wasn't getting one before the conference S-storm.
@Godmars290... do you plan on getting an Xbox One?
Wrong Godmars.....TV Functions are built-in...all you have to do is run the HDMI "out" from your cable box directly to Xbox One HDMI "in" and you are set. My Time Warner Samsung cablebox has this feature. You can always ask your cable provide for a cable upgrade if it doesn't have a HDMI "out". Wake up, you in live the 21st Century Information Age, all electronic devices gather information about your experiences, Xbox One or PS4 is no different. Microsoft is not out to ruin your life. I will say Microsoft better come out this E3 explaining in details of their Xbox One services so people don't get confused and start false rumors like what is going on now. I'm pretty sure MS will be FOCUS ON GAMES.....relax people stop acting like retards.
-__- Seriously, in which of our two breakdowns about Xb1 as a cable box isn't an actual cable box required? For that matter, what cable provider is simply going to "give" you anything? Actually, I would have to get an HDMI-enabled box if I were to get an Xb1. And its a standard DirectTV unit. Only a year or two old. FFS, and you have the never to accuse people of not thinking. Of being wrong.
Skype is on everything and the Wii U already has TV functions. Nobody uses those TV functions, by the way. I certainly don't. It's a waste of time and research for MS to have incorporated television INTO the device. If you want TV so badly, create your own "Xbox Channel" on cable. It would be one thing if these features were nice little additions, but they are the ONLY thing we know about the system. Imagine if Nintendo spent two hours talking about how comfortable it is to stand on a Wii Fit board.
Its because n4g is all Sony fanboys
No. It's because the Xbox One is shaping up to be a more restrictive, inferior console than the PS4. #Dealwithit
You guys who keep insisting it's only N4G Sony fanboys that don't like the One really crack me up. I guess the Sony fanboys are everywhere these days, judging from the results of online polls from various sites, not to mention developer reaction to the reveals.
@Mystic Strummer: You must not know how to differentiate between fan-boys and fans then huh.
And in order to have all these multimedia functions MS is using 3 operating systems which eats up 3gb of ram. These extra features have come at the expense of gaming (on a games console) Plus that video above was probably shown on the original xbox one before it was down clocked by 200mhz, did you see the lag in the snapped video?? Damn you MS, im still raging at being tossed out the door by you. What an annoying waste of time its been supporting you. Edit. You say every device is gathering information, well how many of these devices put a wide angle camera and microphone in your lounge pointed at your sofa 24/7?
what's wrong with it? Is that a joke? 3 gigs have been dedicated to the os, $400,000,000 has been spent on NFL......... when you ask what's wrong with this, look at it like this.... you better hope that Microsoft announces that they spend even more money on a couple of core game development teams. nevermind yourself with that stupid fluff headline of 1 billion dollars, until the specifics of where that money is actually really going no one really cares. there's only 5 gigs that's left for gaming.... put it this way Microsoft is physically designing this system without gaming in mind, sure you have 5 gigs for games but..... did anybody forget that this is a game system that supposed to be 100 percent optimized to play games? yet.... it has a larger footprint then Windows 7. the system is using memory for a feature that has nothing to do with gaming. enjoy your 5 gigs I'll enjoy my 7 GDDR5. one of the things that annoys me with PC is just how much a footprint a OS leaves....this is just so much worse.
LoL EDMIX....5GB RAM dedicated to gaming is more than good enough and those new games are going to shine superb!!! I rather have 3GB RAM instead of 1GB RAM (PS4)dedicated to the three OS that will be running multiple apps in the background. Don't forget Xbox One does have a high-powered 8-Core CPU and Dual GPU all on a SOC. When you look at Xbox 360 it had only 512MB RAM, look at Halo 4 the graphics are amazing. So you can only imagine what 5GB RAM will do for games on the Xbox One. You Nerds you're gonna find down the road that having DDR5 vs. DDR3 is not really going to matter much. These developers can pull all of tricks on this console. Both PS4 & Xbox One are going to be awesome consoles. I will admit I am very proud of Sony for taking the right steps on PS4.....I'm thinking of getting the PS4 too.
Jesus... I love N4G. Wired video showing an older build of the UI running a little bit choppy and the world collapses...kids running around screaming it wasn't real, it wasn't real. And yet, it does work as promised, its still being optimized, and they clearly said they were looking at an older build...but that doesn't matter. Stay classy N4G
Love the TV show running at 5fps when she snapped live TV. Felt like the future.
Xbox One: TV features offered in the form of slide shows. The future is truly here.
You think! My son knew this and he's 5.
So I'm guessing your kid also knows why the grass is green, the sky blue, what's under the rainbow and, where he came from? Yeah, don't think kids would be analysing what's real and what's not at that age.
the thing I did it right is to have 2 HDTV one is for movies and TV and the other is for games, I don't want to go back 10 years to have games, moves and TV shows on one TV that suck is like leaving under the rock again.
Are you for real? Thats a pathetic statement
And it is more pathetic to call other people option pathetic cause you don't agree.
Nothing new. They did the same with milo, and they had the same problems with lag in the kinect. It was reported It couldn't, for some reason see darker people, it was lagy to the point it didn't work. fast forward, and it all works very well and surprise! It can see dark people. My experience with voice commands playing mass effect 3, rise of nightmares, and madden were spot on. Now, if ms were able to produced what was promised, and they faked most of it. What makes you think they won't deliver with the xboxone? Because they faked a few demos, and they are getting bad press, or they didn't show games when gamers expected it, yet they said before hand it was to show the hardware. I really don't care if they faked it, as long as the system works as intended when its released.
Well to the people mindlessly hating. Why would this not be coming out this summer if it was already done working at the speeds it was in the event? They have quite a few months left to work on things, i'd imagine the speed of the UI is one of them. The UI is one of the great things about the 360, I don't they let the laggy version go at launch. Hate for the sake of hate, it's outright pathetic.
I love the Microsoft fanboys. After the presser it was "did you see how fast and fluid that interface was." And now it comes out that it's proven to be fake they are like "how could you not have known it was fake, we knew it was fake the whole time, he was using a device in his pocket." Hypocrites!! I'm calling BS, the whole pocket thing was speculated but never confirmed. And even then the speculation wasn't that it was the UI that was faked, but the clicker was initializing the Kinect commands. And just because the shows weren't live doesn't mean they couldn't have been recorded feeds pumped to a working Xbox, so that proved nothing either. But the major kicker is Microsoft even gloated to how fast the interface was when the whole thing was staged. It's sleazy, and just shows the integrity of the organization.
otherwise everyone would have screamed "Xbox Go Home"
I still see no reason to buy the Xbox One over the PS4. The One is just turning out to be a more restrictive, inferior console compared to the PS4. The major features we've seen from it have been TV and entertainment apps, which I can easily access via my laptop.
All of the complaints about the way One works are from sheep and shortsighted people. This will bring a lot of unique abilities to the Xbox. I even see some games applications to the media features. The things I can imagine these features being used for are why I'll be getting One.
Well its a shame that we cant obtain more information about XBOX One after the conference since Microsoft cancelled their Q&A session with the press.
If people would be more honest and stop spreading nonsense maybe they wouldn't have cancelled. I know I wouldn't bother with a bunch of people on a witch hunt. If you accepted the same non answers Sony gave they might have one. But when the test of innocence is you're telling the truth if you don't drown, why waste your time. You're dealing with people that will never matter.
what if you have a bad stutter? will the screen go crazy lol
"you dont need to know what channel its on any more" "xbox, channel 13" Yeah, ok
wow what a joke..
This is getting better and better! All of this lying going on. I don't know why people continue to support this company. Of course it was staged. Hell one of M$ people had a remote in his pocket to change the channel. Now this. E3 is going to crazy
How you say, wahh wah.
After that idiotic "Siri" fiasco from Apple, I am done with useless voice recognition $hit for lifetime. There is only 1 single thing that POS Siri does consistently well, and that is to frustrate me each time I use it. Finally got done with Apple and their "magical, phenomenal, sensational" iPhones. There is no way in hell I'm going to fall for same $hit again. me: "Xbox, go F*ck yourself"
