See a working Xbox One with Kinect at home, playing Ryse: Son of Rome

Microsoft PR chap posts image of his living room setup

The story is too old to be commented.

Hm.. I don't really see much from the picture. but waiting for this game bad.

iamnsuperman1136d ago (Edited 1136d ago )

Well we can tell he is a fan of candles. He has a Wii, a Wii U (maybe unopened/not currently out/might have spotted it behind the boxes on the right but that could be a plug) and a fat PS3. He likes the old school slightly village/ country house decor which is contrasted by his massive TV. He is clearly right handed as he took the photo with his right hand. He plays more 360 games than anything else. He has a karaoke game (edit figured it out it was lips for the 360). He is a very tidy person

Apart from that. Can't really tell anything else about the One or Ryse (off screen shots always shows games badly)

Anything else N4G community?

devwan1136d ago

OK, you noticed far more than I did and I thought I did well!

creatchee1136d ago (Edited 1136d ago )

I love that he has a lot of consoles - it's great to see that even though he works for one company, he is a gamer above all.

MasterCornholio1136d ago

O.O

Your one scary person.

Sitdown1136d ago (Edited 1136d ago )

He could have a significant other who is a fan of candles. He could hate the decor of his house, and again it be to the liking of a significant other. It's not clear that he is right handed, just clear that this picture was not taken with his left hand....he could be ambidextrous. You did not state he has a Panasonic TV. You also missed the automatic light switch.

I feel sorry for any girl you have ever stalked!

If the CIA hired you, you would have spotted Osama Bin Laden on 8/11.

Quite a humble setup for a MS PR person. Kinda nice to see he plays on other platforms even though he works for MS.

HammadTheBeast1136d ago

It's interesting, does the Xbox Logo always stay lit up on the controller?

I know some people had issues with the PS4 light bar being on unless devs turned it off.

mewhy321136d ago

Oh come on. This could easily be running from the PC in the floor next to his TV. It's already been revealed that most of the game demos at E3 were running on windows computers.

Dlacy13g1136d ago

@mewhy32... omg... troll much?

monkey nuts1136d ago

@ mewhy: dude it's not in his floor, seriously dude blatant trolling. The PC tower has conveniently been housed inside the cardboard box stack. All he had to do was cut the backs out of the boxes and BLAMO! Instant camouflage.

!
Hey did that box move?!
Hmmmph must have been nothing
Come in control, everything is normal here...........

*removes tinfoil hat*

guitarded771135d ago

He's also very open with twitterers. This guy should me MS's spokes person. He makes the XBOX One seem legit, while MS's corporate shills damage the XBOX One's reputation with everything they say. He better not get in trouble over this... he's they best thing that's happened for XBOX One.

ShinMaster1135d ago (Edited 1135d ago )

So is the best looking game of all time(according to Xbox fans), Ryse, still running bellow 30fps?

Or is 30fps only a bad thing when it's a PS4 game?

Dead_Cell1135d ago

I've scared myself.

I knew that photo was from the UK in an instant and I didn't even see the directory of the link. I don't know how but yeah.

Godz Kastro1135d ago

@Zachriel

The execs are usually level headed... Wish I could say the same about fanboys. If they ran these companies they would be bankrupt in months...

Novistador1135d ago

Did you happen to find Waldo as well?

jon12341135d ago

there clearly is a female living with him....

clouds51135d ago

The xbox is a pc anyway...

oNIXo1135d ago

He's not a fan of candles and probably doesn't like old school slightly village/country decor either. He's probably has one of those "women" things living with him. I gots one too, and they like to do that shit.

Their self-hype is hilarious! lol

sobotz1136d ago

He's a gamer after all. He has a PS3 and Wii U

Insomnia_841136d ago (Edited 1136d ago )

That I know but the way they try to create hype is just...idk it's like they trying to convince you saying stuff that the public should be saying not them for example some of the tittles we have seen here
"XX person FROM MICROSOFT says the Xbox is amazing"
"XX person FROM MICROSOFT says Ryse is the best thing he has seen"
"XX person FROM MICROSOFT: when I showed my wife what the xbox one and kinect can do my wife said: OMG it can do that? Can I get one? That's amazing!"
"Xbox One unboxing with Major Nelson FROM MICROSOFT(followed by the video showing him saying some really annoying PR big hyoe words as usual from MS) "
"XX person FROM MICROSOFT says with the POWER OF THE CLOUD blah blah blah"

It's just that they have never really showed nothing to the real public, no one besides people FROM MICROSOFT have put their hands on it or even a prototype or something and all the feed back has been only from them really and this is something I've been saying for a while now, it's like they don't want anyone to touch the thing or even get clkse to it for some reason and when the showed it to the public for pics it was behind a glass no ine could get close to it or touch it unlike Sony with the PS4, we have seen other people from the media with the actual system.

It's something that's been in my mind for a while and it's always the same thing. It could be the lack of trust the have created in me over the course of the past 7 years with the way they do things.

Insomnia_841135d ago (Edited 1135d ago )

I see a lot of ignorance as replies to my comment. Try to look at the way Sony advertises their product and then look at the way Microsoft does, Microsoft has a very cheap way of doing it. It takes more than the naked eye to see and understand this. Compare them and you will see, how both companies talk, their wording, who speaks more straight forward, no spinning words and as a result look at people's reactions and which comlany has more support from gamers and which company has been back pedaling and trying to be like the other.

Btw, judging from how some people replies like stoutBEER and tokugawa cheering him up, I can understand the big problem Microsoft has with the immaturity of its Xbox Live users to the point of having a "xbox live police department" to counter this. That is a community I seriously don't want to be part of. Goes to show the kind of low people that support a company that acts just like them.

pacostacos1136d ago (Edited 1136d ago )

it is pretty funny seeing as the other console makers and their employees dont hype up their own products, Oh wait...

lastofgen1136d ago

How is that bad?
This isn't something even worth criticizing..

theWB271136d ago (Edited 1136d ago )

I'm calling your BS out...there have bee tons of people who've been up and close with the X1. Public included...Plenty of people have played both systems...

It's like you went from May...lived under a rock...then came in today and posted both of these silly comments.

A company hyping its own product in order to gain customer awareness. Whoda f"n thunk it right?

How many interviews has Cerny done doing that same exact thing??? The has been everywhere hyping the PS4. Troll harder...or at least more intelligently.

RyuCloudStrife1135d ago (Edited 1135d ago )

WRONG!! Cerny hasn't done the same exact thing. What Cerny has done is answer the questions many people have had about the PS4 ALL IN 1 VIDEO. Then the gaming media chopped it up into 40 different articles. That's why there were tons of articles about Cerny saying this or Cerny saying that.

Here is the video: http://www.youtube.com/watc...

What M$ is doing is viral marketing. They are letting you do the advertising for them.

starchild1135d ago (Edited 1135d ago )

@RyuCloudStrife

Oh jeez, how much more biased can you get?
Cerny absolutely is hyping up the PS4. You can do all kinds of mental contortions trying make excuses for why it's really not hyping the PS4, but the reality remains.

And there damn sure as hell has been more than one video. I've read several different written interviews and watched several different videos with Cerny talking about how amazing the PS4 is going to be.

I've also seen lots of comments from Shuhei Yoshida and other Sony executives hyping the PS4.

But you know what? There is nothing wrong with that. All companies work to build excitement for their products. That some of you try to twist this into a bad thing when it comes to the XB1 really says everything about the heights of your fanboyism.

XboxFun1135d ago

@Ryucloud

Wasn't Cerny on Jimmy Fallon hyping up the PS4?

http://www.edge-online.com/...

Yes he was...oh you silly sony fanboys.

RyuCloudStrife1135d ago (Edited 1135d ago )

Ok everyone here has something VERY confused.

What Microsoft is doing is making videos and doing things regular consumers would do AFTER you purchase the product.

It's called Viral Marketing.

They know this will get customers exited and will share across social media sites and generate more "advertising" for free.

What Mark Cerny has done is a 40 minute presentation on the "Road to PS4", and yes he's gone on VARIOUS interviews- of course people wanna talk to the man behind the PS4. HELLO??

Now is he going and tweeting pictures of the PS4 in his living room? Or is he doing PS4 unboxings? No Sony already said that it is better for the customer to experience themselves for the first time.

And the video about sharing a game on PS4, that was a direct jab at Microsoft- and its also understandable because in those days the #PS4noDRM was tearing up twitter. It's totally understandable why they did it at that VERY opportune time.

RyuCloudStrife1135d ago

Well I agree with you 100%. Microsoft is using social network media to generate free advertising.

Viral Marketing.

theWB271135d ago

Are you dense? You can Google Cerny interviews and see how many sites have done interviews with the man.

Microsoft has a cheap way of advertising? They spent over 50 million on ads for Halo 4.

500 million on ads for Kinect- http://www.gamespot.com/new...

500 million on the original Xbox. 1BILLION on the 360.

None of those numbers are cheap. Lets look at Sony.

Killzone 2 had about 4 million. It's looking like the PS4 will have 100 million.

Online- Does the PSN crowd offer a chance for tea and crumpets before every match? Or ask how your day went and feel sad if it didn't go well? I doubt it...they're just as immature in PSN as Live.

Booyah1135d ago

When he said cheap, I don't think he was talking about the money.

DigitalRaptor1135d ago (Edited 1135d ago )

I think you misunderstood what he meant by "cheap" in this scenario. I'm not saying he's right, but on the other hand, Microsoft has had to be more conservative with their console after everything that has happened in the past 4 months, and it's definitely not the consumer's fault. They're going to have to tread lightly with everything they do, and it's already folding around them.

Titanfall isn't even a launch title, so that'd be quite difficult...

pacostacos1136d ago

i like how the xbox logos light up on the console, kinect, and pad pretty neat

IcicleTrepan1136d ago

You get to really see the size of it in comparison to other consoles and gear. It's really not much diff in size to the 360.
