Hey Prcko you're the top dog now! Congrats. bub+1 for being awesome.

my fav moment so far

Geoff: What does MS need to have at this event to make it really special

Ex-MS crony: Halo

Geoff: Another Halo? (you actually saw him frown)


(it's moments like these that make watching boring press events so worth it. :D)

Rev3games is also doing a live stream

(Forza overtook GT? When the hell did this happen? Did their last game sell more than 10 million copies? Did the franchise sell more than 70 million copies total? So how in Da fook did they over take GT?! Answer me gametrailers!)

Gotta love the dramatic music. Less than 2 minutes left!!!

darthv721980d ago

cloud powered...interesting

Septic1980d ago (Edited 1980d ago )

Entertainment console confirmed. Wow so friggin fast. Multi tasking is brilliant on this.

But where are the games??

Skips1980d ago

Microsoft - "We at Xbox LOVE gaming.......... now let's watch TV."

thechosenone1980d ago (Edited 1980d ago )

MS stuck in the 90s? This would have been cool a number of years ago but today everyone is moving away from the traditional content distribution model and having it being centralized in just one place.

What about the hardware? Where's the info on how beefy it is compared to PS4? heh

15 exclusive ips. Wow very good. Lets hope they are core titles.

Septic1980d ago

Lol the new COD looks so mediocre. Battlefield 3 on PC destroys it visually and technically.

thechosenone1980d ago (Edited 1980d ago )

That was lame so incredibly lame. :D Without question PS4 > Xbox -1. PS4 is a much more attractive product for gamers but if TV & Movies is your thing then I suggest you go with the Xbox.

(and COD looks current gen! lulz But don't worry it'll have the same old laggy gameplay and poor hit-detection just like always. COD DOA next-gen, Killzone, Destiny, BF4 all day).

@Septic from the 15, 8 are new IPs but they didn't say how many of those were kinect titles.

Computersaysno1980d ago

Xbox 1 came out 12 years ago didn't it?


malokevi1980d ago

They spent half the show talking about sports, sports games, fantasy teams, and interviews with sports stars...


All I wanted to see was some impressive software... I saw NOTHING.

No demonstration of Kinect integrated into games. Nothing really cool... at all.

The TV thing is awesome, the social capabilities, but... that was supposed to be the gravy. Wheres the potatoes? WHERES THE GAMES?

I'm sort of dissapointed right now. Console looks beutiful, funtionality is awesome, but... I didn't see what I wanted to see.

At least the PS4 conference had tech demos, trailers, in-game footage, and that cool modeling app with the Move.

Microsofts focus is BS. If they don't demonstrate some serious stuff at E3 next month, i will be considering PS4 as my primary gaming console.

Which is sad news to me...

Anon19741980d ago (Edited 1980d ago )

That was god awful. What was that? 50 minutes of how the Xbox is now a cable box? I see that Sony stock surged up almost 10% in a matter of minutes to a high not seen in a year and a half about mid way through this train wreck.

But onto the event. It seems always on, always watching, showed no games (just cgi trailers) and the entire focus was on how the Xbox was your new cable box. Seriously, we should take this whole Xbox reveal thread and move it over to TechSpy because it had almost nothing to do with games, which I believe is supposed to be the focus of this site.

The original Xbox was my favourite console of it's gen (sorry PS2). The 360 was alright. I was already planning on waiting with the Xbox One just because of hardware issues I suffered through with the 360, but now I think I'll pass. There just seems to be no reason a gamer would actually buy one of these based on that reveal.

Microsoft have lost their collective minds, in my opinion. It's like they have no clue who took the Xbox to the heights it achieved. It was a big middle finger to all Xbox fans.

loulou1980d ago (Edited 1980d ago )

darkride your talking out of your arse, and no doubt that stock thread yours that got failed.

the tv stuff was great no doubt. the rapid moving between services was good aswell. and the kinect/skype will be great for using when i speak to my family in the UK.

the console looks like a no nonsense console (looks wise) with a hint of blu-ray player and set-top box.... which it is. buy the looks you can see that microsoft are trying to appeal to a broader market. which i think is going to work in their favour.

i still want to see what they show at e3.. but with the talk of the cheque book being flashed, and 15 exclusives within 12 months of launch, they are up for it.

i think that they are going to give sony an even tougher fight next-gen..

ps4 and xbox1 are both day 1 for me now.

DragonKnight1980d ago

People though Microsoft would reveal a next gen gaming console. What we all got was an "entertainment" box that does sports and voice commands really well but...

SilentNegotiator1980d ago


....television series.


MysticStrummer1980d ago

Hear that sound? It's Sony laughing.

MS could still redeem themselves at E3, but this reveal might have actually helped PS4 buzz.

gta28001980d ago

If Comcast made a new cable box that happened to have some gaming capability it would be the Xbox One!

DARK WITNESS1980d ago (Edited 1980d ago )


and they had the nerve to take the piss out of sony for not showing hardware, what a joke.

MS could not have got this more wrong.. yet again.

There are loads of people in my office that have 360 for casual gaming, None of them stayed behind to watch this crap. The 4 of us who did were all waiting for them to show games...

The only smart thing they did was not change the controller and make sure the casing was so big there is no chance of it RROD'ing

I can now safely say i am pre-ordering my ps4

nix1980d ago (Edited 1980d ago )

feels surreal.

i mean how can MS screw this up? after Sony's show everyone wanted to hear about games on xbox. games. but noh. i wonder which idiots are running this show?

they probably went back to xbox one bcoz ipad also went back to 1 or a zero, in their case.

funniest part is Sony's stock going up midway. i mean talk about irony there.

i can't wait to read the memes now.

RedDevils1979d ago (Edited 1979d ago )

DAMN that one ugly BOX LMAO

BattleAxe1979d ago

No real game announcements, lots of TV, a live action Halo series, a new Forza game, Kinect with every console....ths was all too predictable, and I'm really underwhelmed by this press conference.

I found it kinda hard to stay awake during the whole thing. Was kinda boring. And that new COD game doesn't excite me about COD again.

Sports games and COD...typical. At least xbox knows it's own audience. I'm still not interested...

MYSTERIO3601980d ago

It seems MS are competing with the cable box market. Good luck

ZombieKiller1980d ago

they strayed even further from games and brought the thing I hate the most to it.....sports. First off, I work in the cellular industry and the smart phones nowadays, do what this Xbox one does. I can't stand the sports takeover. its a gaming console. as if we didn't have TV already. they showed 3 games, on of which was call of doody....

despite having a 360, I'm not getting this one. it looks like its just going to be another money grubbing decade for MS. This time looks to be with things I dont want too.

It sounds like the titles to these consoles are really the scoreboard to how many generations of consoles I will ever buy from the companies. playstation=4 xbox=1

Rhaigun1979d ago

Its the very first day we've seen this machine, and I already hate it. I'd rather buy a WiiU at this point.

Psn8001980d ago (Edited 1980d ago )

Ugh not for me this time around ! Ps4 all the way .

Gee. Color me surprised.

Docknoss1980d ago

I heard that Kevin Butler will be giving a presentation for xbox at the E3 conference and his closing quote is "it only does everything better"!

Apocalypso1979d ago

The only place you heard that was from reading your comment out loud before posting.

Imalwaysright1980d ago (Edited 1980d ago )

I didn't watch the conference but judging by the comments here it seems that MS will be following the same strategy they had with the 360 in the past 3 years and to me that is a no no. They better have new core Ips at E3 or else as far as gaming is concerned the Xbox and MS are dead to me.

fatstarr1980d ago

after watching it twice. gen 8 is doomed Nintendo, sony and Microsoft failed us. the feelings of most watching.

aceitman1980d ago

my question is who is the people that clap at any and everything.

RE4PER-DE4TH1979d ago (Edited 1979d ago )

The reveal did exactly what it was supposed to and it showed a lot about their plan to have a solid living room solution. It doesn't mean that it's not a games console, it's just like the guy said about having to switch inputs to get to other content. So now instead of a media center pc, a Roku device, a cable box, and a wifi router to network all that now it's integrated into one machine. That doesn't spell the doom of Xbox being a games console! The console still comes with a controller, not a remote like for your TV. They know gamers want games and they know living rooms are the center for entertainment.

Question to all the PS fanboys: when PS2 came with DVD playback did that stop it from being a games console? Did it take away the focus of PS2 gamers playing their games? No, a gamer will play his or her games first and foremost before they look at the other capabilities of a console.

You can fix the bubble system by changing it so that new accounts start off with only 1 bubble. That way the people who want to act like asshats only to create a new account for more bubbles will have no recourse. Want more bubbles...then I guess you will have to earn them and behave appropriately.

Emilio_Estevez1980d ago

Neither of us can change that, srry dude...We do try to watch new accounts though and it does yield results.
