Broken Promises of the Next Gen Consoles

After months of hype and extensive PR campaigns, the two big next-gen consoles, the Playstation 4 and Xbox One, have been launched. They are the most powerful, most connected, and most innovative gaming consoles ever released. Or at least that's what their respective companies have been telling everyone for the past 9 months. The question now is, do these two gaming behemoths live up to the promises they made when they were revealed to the public? (Microsoft, PS4, Sony, Xbox One)

All of those things are coming in an update. The interact button is present when watching videos it's just grayed out at the moment. Still they should have been clear that it wouldn't be available at launch.

Broken promises? I think you are taking this a bit personally.

Cry me a river baby boy. Thats why God created firmware updates. And everyone knew that the Xbox One reveal was staged. Its a little late now.

I'm nitpicking but my biggest problem with PS4 is if I want to turn off the controller while watching a video it pauses and can't restart it without controller. Not entirely sure if this is an issue outside of Netflix but just... annoying. It defeats the purpose entirely and hope they patch it sometime. One minor thing I miss from PS3. I have it on shortest timer for Automatic turnoff but still preferred old way to do it as saved every bit of juice. And if I just have it charging defeats purpose of wireless controller ;)

Xbox One has another annoying Netflix quirk: voice control lacks enough commands as once you start a recently watched tv show changing episodes (say you don't want to watch them linearly) is ridiculous without a controller. Another small issue really but Netflix is second biggest use for consoles for me (games being first of course).

If someone knows how to resolve those would be appreciated ;). I could always have overlooked something.

1080p 60frames

1080p @ 60fps was 3 years ago.

2k, 4k at 120 fps on a true 120hz display should have been next gen console hardware.

Consoles are stuck for the next 10 years with already ancient tech.
