Two things I learned, 1 x1 is only horizontal(good to know) 2 no official word on friend limits from microsoft

True_Samurai1569d ago (Edited 1569d ago )

If you're talking about friends list i think it's 1000 more than enough

cl19831569d ago

Per the video microsoft hasn't confirmed the limit.

georgeenoob1569d ago

@Cl

Who cares about if it's 1000 or 2000? Are you Soulja Boy?

gaffyh1569d ago

It's effectively unlimited is what Major Nelson said, but the said that you can't have more than a thousand. Although I don't think he actually knew, it was as if he was getting.

You should use your one bubble more wisely..lamo!

Yea, nobody actually has 1,000 real friends anyways, no matter what they tell you.

Friends aren't people you've met once or twice, they are people you hang out with and know very well.

Otherwise they are acquaintances, or "people you know".

sandman2241569d ago

I agree with you. I think 100 friends are enough.

These are all the features the X1 has plus could come later.

1).Mod support
2).Cloud Processing (300 000 dedicated servers)
3).Smart-Match and advanced match making
4).Unlimited cloud storage
5).Kinect 2.0 has some great potential and complete navigation through the console

Illumiroom
GameSharing

They all sound great to me.

EDIT: I forgot to add Game DVR with an integrated editing studio.

@AngelicIceDiamond

"Mod support" - Perhaps, according to Major Nelson.

"Unlimited cloud storage" - This is already available to 360 and Ps3.

"Xbox Smartglass" - I think this is already available.

Well you actually forget to add that a Headset may be include with the Xbox ONE, according to Microsoft.

I'm sorry, but is there a chance that someone can bubble me up ? Thanks.

malokevi1569d ago

georgenoob , you get a bubble up from me.

I cannot believe that people are actually having this argument.

gaffyh1568d ago

@AngelicIceDiamond - I could quite easily breakdown most of those things , but I'll just say you're really stretching some of those features you've got listed.

iSneak1568d ago

@pedrof93

there certainly is a limit to cloud storage on 360 it's not unlimited.

Xbox one's friend list is unlimited you can have as many friends as you want.

iamnsuperman1569d ago (Edited 1569d ago )

No it is "unlimited" (i.e. with the quotation marks). How unlimited is "unlimited" seems to be around a 1,000 (what has been said but that could change/be wrong).

https://twitter.com/majorne...

In the end it doesn't really matter. I barely have 400 friends on FB. 1,000 is extreme

imdaboss11569d ago

u will get the red lights of death

Deadpoolio1569d ago

Ummmmm MS already confirmed the limit and it IS 1000

Mystogan1569d ago

They said its between 1000 and a million.(basically unlimited). You're probably not going to have more then 1000 anyway.

Hopefully an Xbox One console. You may disagree but it depends who you buy it from. Not so long ago some woman paid around $700 for two apples

OT: I thought this video was going to be pointless (being on here 24/7) but I didn't know you couldn't stand the thing vertically.

mcstorm1569d ago

I did not know you could not stand it vertically too looks like my tv stand needs to be re arranged as I have 5 external hard drives and surround sound tv speaker on the top shelf

Sphynxx1569d ago

Man that twitch streaming is awesome. Seems like its very stable since it was just shown to have hundreds of viewers. This entire console looks incredible so many features Tv, Twitch, Skype, Multi tasking, Cloud, Best controller in the world, KINECT!!!!. Awesome console cant wait.

"Man that twitch streaming is awesome. Seems like its very stable since it was just shown to have hundreds of viewers. This entire console looks incredible so many features Tv, Twitch, Skype, Multi tasking, Cloud, Best controller in the world, KINECT!!!!. Awesome console cant wait."

And not one single mention of GAMES.

Love it!

Sphynxx1569d ago (Edited 1569d ago )

Why do i need to mention about games? I am talking about FEATURES, obviously you wouldnt konw about because PS4 offers nothing.Xbox is a game console, everyone knows Xbox won over E3. Dead rising alone destroys any game PS4 has mentioned. Microsoft had 3 games that were all known to be the best games of E3, Dead rising, Titanfall, and Ryse. So please try again failure.

JBSleek1569d ago (Edited 1569d ago )

People speak about phones without one mention of actually talking on the phone.

Why? Because it's a given.

"Terrible analogy"

Go on The Verge and look at their reviews of their phones. Not a single thing about the call quality or how it works at all. What modern phone has crap text capabilities?? And you have one example about the iPhone and it was only talked about because it didn't work in certain hand placements no other modern phone has this issue.

iamnsuperman1569d ago (Edited 1569d ago )

@JBSleek

"People speak about phones without one mention of actually talking on the phone."

Yes they do. If a phone has crap phone call/text capabilities then it would be talked about by a lot of people (i.e. the iPhone antenna scandal). Terrible analogy. Yes people look at phones and decide which has the better multimedia stuff but that is only when the phone part is good. Games differ in quality so it should be talked about with consoles. It isn't a "given"

iamnsuperman1569d ago (Edited 1569d ago )

@JBSleak

I am not sure why you mentioned the verge because they give a score in their reviews for call quality and have a section for it on the Nokia review.....Also trusted reviews has an entire page dedicated to calling and another dedicated to messaging. Have a look
http://www.techradar.com/re...
http://www.theverge.com/201... (look at the bottom)
http://www.theverge.com/201... (This one has its own section)

These websites do talk about the core functions of the phone

dcj05241569d ago

Wow. The PS4 and XBOX ONE really are similar. The only feature that the PS4 doesn't have is TV, Fantasy sports team, and multitasking ( which is odd since the VITA can do it with only 512MB). It really comes down to the games& policies.
