Ireland AM is really blown away by the Xbox One

WHEN IRELAND AM showcased the new Xbox One, Gadget Guru Colin Baker couldn’t help but be amazed at it all. (Xbox One)

Siri, can parse spoken word. That would rock Colin Baker's world.

True, Xbox One will offer this down the road but it was decided at launch it was safer to use the preprogramed system they are using now for reliability. MS's equivalent to Siri code named Cortana will eventually be used on the Xbox One.

As far as 3 grand for a computer that can computer that can do the same thing as the Xbox One that would depend on what he is really talking about. To play that level of games you could probably buy one for $1500 in Canada or build one for $1000. If you wanted the full functionality of voice commands, motion detection, facial recognition, camera that sees in the visual, infrared, and ultra violet spectrums, do all the other stuff Kinect does all integrated into one computer would cost you a considerable amount of money and most do it yourself computer guys could not do it.

All that said this guy sure is excited about it.

"Aside from the phenomenal graphics, it’s a bargain, when you consider a PC of the same power would cost €3,000. Well, nearabouts."

Uhh No. You could build a more powerful machine for way less...unless I'm wrong, and I'm sorry but NOW you're wondering about games competing with Film? That's all they've been doing throughout the whole seventh generation.

On behalf of the Irish, apologies for this retarded 'journalist'.

@Insomnia -
Not low standards - it's a complete lack of knowledge on tech. Even the idiot fanboys on this site know you don't need 3000 quid to match next gen consoles with a pc

$4100 USD on a PC would be such incredible overkill you could probably inadvertently create SkyNet and it would kill us all.

LMFAO gadget guru that has no idea about tech at all, 3000 euros wow lol just wow.

Why did this even get submitted let alone approved , that guy is deff not some expert if he thinks it would take 3000 euros to build a pc that can do what the xbone can do.

3000? WTF? Idiots like this make me ashamed to be Irish. 700-800 euro/dollars would be a sufficient amount to build a PC more powerful than the one. Maybe even less.

Benjamin, lived in Ireland till I was 26, and every 2, 3 years had to update my PC to keep up. 3000 euros is ridiculous, but it would still be more than 1,000 to build something decent enough to get you through at least a year without worrying. And its Ireland, nothing is cheap. Used to be able to get drunk on less than 20 euro, now, thats just 3 beers at my old local!!!
