This video will lead to some answers to questions about the Xbox One. Note the interview is not written it is a video
Good interview! Gave a nice bit of info. Happy to know he put to rest the banning and losing the games purchase thing. @Rifatgamer It's no big deal, mess happens.
sorry i disagree with your comment, I wish I can redo that and agree with you
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING! …said no one ever
Yay for Sony! We win!!
I disagreed with him for you rifatgamer ;) :)
"Still have access" - If he is talking about physical discs then yes, you would have access to them. That could simply mean you can touch them or something.....
After watching this interview, this guy obviously is full of it; "We're building for the future," and "After the Sony conference we're not gonna change anything," REALLY?! I can't take this guy seriously, same with Don Mattrick, Phil Harrison, and Steve Balmer. Oh and Major Nelson, "You went full retard. Never go full retard."
After their bold arrogant stance, I hope for their sake they have a brilliant marketing campaign planned. Otherwise they are going to go into next E3 with their heads between their legs and look like complete and utter idiots. That is assuming they're still employed by Microsoft come next E3.
when he was asked about the question regarding the 24hr check and the issue of physical copy. his answer was basically... 'xbox one's architecture, flexibility, family sharing,xbox is about being connected, future proof' this is the summary of his very long and hard to understand answer. now this is exactly the point, where him or microsoft like to twist these words and explain in this long and complicated way so nobody really understands the answer. they need to take that 24hr check out and give some 'flexibility' by not implementing this.
The info he basically really covered nothing important. The only thing that was important he beeted about the bush on was family sharing thing yet never cleared anything up about it. This is something to good to be true. If something is too goo to be true then it probably is. Plus Major Nelson sounds like a complete tool.
Apparently Sony rejected an interview with this same girl. She claims that Sony wanted to screen the questions but when they saw the potential questions to be asked they cancelled. Find the thread on gaf for more info.
Yea because it's such a hassle to have to bring 4 games that are about 3 inches in width and less than 1LB to carry. Are we that lazy ? Is bringing games elsewhere that big of a deal?
He didn't put squat to rest. How will banning work then if you have to do a 24 hour check-in if your account is blocked? Please, explain to me how this works because Major Nelson didn't explain diddly squat. What happens to your games tied to that account since the discs aren't worth squat but the licenses are? What happens? Xbox One's official support said that if your account is banned all licensed games attached to that account is banned. THAT makes sense. When that happens with Origin and Steam you can still play your games offline...but remember you can't play your games offline with Xbox One if you fail to do the 24 hour check-in, so how can you play games you can't access?!?!?
lol. Sounds like you have a problem following a companies TOS with all your questions about bans. Don't cheat or hack and you should be fine.
i only liked the Redhead out of this interview
Glad to see that rumor being put to rest and damn that chick is hot. ;)
i would trade my next ps4 for that chick :)
good thing i'm gay.
I'd rather keep the PS4, there's way hotter chicks; especially ones who game on the PlayStation.
I agree on the chick, oh my lord.
Thanks Nelson, now I'll go immediately pre-order my xbox. . . . . . . . Except I won't
This guy is a such a tool. Luckily the smoking hot redhead made the video watchable.
Major Nelson is one cool guy. He should of done the presentation for MS. I don't see why you would hate him.
He's standing there, greasy faced, pasty skin, with a dead dog on his head and dancing around every question. If this is the face of Xbone no wonder it's a mess.
How he looks is just the sad part.I'm judging him based on how he dodges questions and spins them. Better job explaining things? He's Microsofts mouthpiece and that is it.He barely knows anything other than what master MS feeds him. He tweeted out that MGSV was exclusive, that's how little he knows lol.
@AnimeAvenger, He did a great job really explaining nothing, Mojor Nelson is like a politician, a lot of words that sound like an explanation, but, when broken down, he has cleared nothing up. But, I really cannot blame him for doing his job, he can only follow the company line. besides that, he seems like an OK guy. could lose that hat though. looks like he stole it from a Japanese schoolgirl.
I guess if you have a vampire fetish. Not really my thing.
We'll see another article about it before the day is out.
Why has he got part of Chewbacca on his head. And where's the rest of Chewbacca.
Probably blackmailed Chewbacca with the poor wookie's digital 360 collection under the logic that if he wore some wookie fur, it would help deflect some of the criticism.
Will we lose our stuff at the end of this generation? how can i deflect the obvious answer.. "uh uh we just started this generation, sink tons of money into our games and don't worry at all about if you will get to play them in the future." Will you lose access to your games if you're banned? "absolutely not, you'll never lose access to your games" -- so if we never lose access to our purchases why didn't you say that for the first question? Are you going to change anything about the Xbox One after seeing Sony's presser? "did you see the games... accept all our crap because of game.. did you see the GAMES"
This guy is a complete tool. As you said how can you get banned but still play all your games!!!! Just don't get it they are just playing with words trying to make out that they are not doing something yet they probably are.
Banned from their servers...yet be able to call back to the mothership every single 24hr...? its piratically a brick to M$ faithfuls as their best exclusives are MP.
Sorry, but it sounds like he just confirmed all the things I didn't like about the Xbone, but i was more focused on what the hell was on his head, (...and where I can get one) Also "they are not changing anything" after seeing Sonys approach to next gen. Aw man, I still think the xbox1 is gonna have trouble selling. (... thats the new xbox1 btw not the old xbox1)
Yep agreed pretty much confirmed all the things we don't want on the xbone Microsoft so stupid Playstation nation all the way!
Stop hating dude. Major Nelson is cool.
Major nelson is cool but, Microsoft in general isn't right now...
watching TV while playing xbox one games? huh why??? thats dumb.
No. It's a great idea and I think sony is making a huge mistake not adding HDMI in for their console. So many things you can do with it. MS was smart to add this one plus the extra operating systems.
I'll get one as soon as I have to. Perhaps after a Playstation 4
Are you a shill trying to feed us misinformation? PS4 has a HDMI port.
PS4 has an HDMI hook up. What doesn't have an HDMI hook up. Its proven MOST people have flat screen T.V's. If you had done some research before posting that comment you would know that.
TheEvilWithin, before you tell people to do some research you should really read what was said, he says HDMI IN... Not standard HDMI, the Xbox one has both HDMI out and HDMI in, the PS4 comes with that usual HDMI out the most modern electronics do, as do the PS3 and the 360..... Maybe you should do research before you post, maybe you would have then knew this.... Aibreeze same goes to you mate, he says HDMI IN....
OMG you're right. In fact. I've been able to do that since the late 90's with picture-in-picture on every TV I've ever owned...since the late 90's. MS adds a convenience to it I guess. Although I have to admit, even with the ability to do that since the 90's, I only tried it twice, and the results were lackluster both times...mainly because I tend to focus on the game while I'm playing my games.
They keep praising the fact that your game library will be available in the cloud no matter where you are. But, they have yet to announce or mention how much cloud storage they're going to provide you for free and how much their tiered cloud storage pricing will be. You can bet your ass M$ will not be giving everyone unlimited cloud storage space, so you might as well go ahead and expect another fee you'll have to pay on top of Live.
Your games won't be in the cloud and instantly available on different xbox ones, your licenses are in the cloud. You'll still need to login and download them if you want to play them on a different machine, works just like Xbox Live Arcade games on the 360.
Lol goodluck downloading that 20gb on your friends house just to play for awhile,
I never saw so many thick headed people, I mean really this is ridiculous. So no one wants a console that is trying to innovate and try something new (do not tell me that sharing and cloud streaming is new (sharing was bound to come some time soon and cloud streaming is just streaming content, also did sony say that you had access to your old ps3 games in the cloud or do you need to purchase them again?). New generation should be about changes and not bashing the changes that are happening. We should see the positives of a new generation.
The HDMI-in crap is so stupid, i can do almost all of this with my TV remote , for instance stuff like tv guides, the Input button to change from tv to console or the picture in picture functionality , seriously it's redundant as hell , it's like they're trying to make the xbone the next TV remote too not just the next water cooler lolz
So with your TV remote you can play games like Halo online while someone rings you with Skype the game pauses you take the call, its your mate telling you to check out this link about a new game coming soon that you can say, Xbox play link, then up pops a video from youtube. Say bye to your friend then carry on playing Halo. No...
Every feature the Xbox provides built in to Samsung TV's. http://www.techny.com/2012/...
>Implying everyone has Samsung TV's
No not implying anything, just proving all these snarky comments toward Master-H are false. And also showing how needless these features are on the Bone when they will be standard on TVs.
@EasilyTheBest when i'm playing a game like halo i dont want any stupid interruptions like checking a video of another game while i'm in the middle of playing my damn game ! , seriously who does that ?! also skype is nothing new and i can use it on almost all of my electronic devices, my smart phone my Desk top PC my laptop... u name it. so if i'm playing and some stupid friend of mine sent me a link on skype i can pause my game and check the link on my smartphone for instance , really the xbone does nothing new in that regard, i don't know if some of you people are just weak minded or having been exposed to MS's PR spins for too long or what lol
Actually yes. My TV supports all those features...with the exception of waving my hands around and talking to my TV. I can also play Halo on it if I hook a 360 up to it. It's not even an expensive Samsung TV. It's some no name Samsung knock-off thing from Korea(I assume). Oddly enough, even though it's on my TV, My Sony Blu-Ray player also supports most of those features, with the exception of playing halo and skype. Even odder, my cable box also has voice chat, although I've never used it, allows me to pass through a game system for it to use it's own overlay, and allows me to play games with the remote...crappy games, but games none the less. Even odder is I never once went looking for any of those features because I don't really care about them, but they're there I guess. Played around with them, then just watched TV or played a game once the novelty wore off. So the OP is accurate...the X1's features are redundant.
"So with your TV remote you can play games like Halo online while someone rings you with Skype the game pauses you take the call, its your mate telling you to check out this link about a new game coming soon that you can say, Xbox play link, then up pops a video from youtube." No he can't. He is just talking out of his behind right now. Sony should of added HDMI in with their console. It's gonna come back and bite them in a few years. It was smart of MS to have 3 operating systems for a smooth transition from games to TV o whatever. Now you can watch TV and still get messages o screen from xbox live...That's so cool.
It frees up an hdmi input on your tv. So instead of plugging your xbox360 or satellite into your tv you plug it into the xbox one is the way I understood it.
This can also be done with a 20$ HDMI switch, not that impressive of a feature.
"3 operating systems" running simultaneously?!?! MS is the reigning KING of BLOAT. A gaming machine should have a lean OS that allows game developers to get as close to the metal as possible for optimum performance in it's main function, Games. as well as allowing next gen apps as smoothly as possible.
Smacking down that FUD! I look forward to more on family share and how 360 and One connect :>
Why cant my game library be up-to-date by requiring connections only when installing a game? Major Nelson did not adequately answer the question as to why the console must log on at least once every 24 hours, or why you can't keep the disc in the tray as a failsafe. Just more BS
Because really the underlined word we keep forgetting is DIGITAL the easiest way to understand this is like this.... Really wether u like it or not xb1 games can only be played from digital data even if u have the disc is just a media used to get the bits to the HDD ...after that it's useless until installation again ....that and the fact its easier and quicker to get the bits from installing over downloading Remember they revealed all games have a digital availability to be downloaded on release day....having disc on xb1 is just a supplement to execute digital gaming So far digital distribution ,am sure is what came out long hours of research and development over at Redmond HQ, yield that it's less prone to piracy and hence the move towards it will begin come November at console launch
Goodluck to all the gamer out there who'll buy xb1 with poor internet connection
I get all that, but how does that necessitate check ins every 24 hours? If you buy the game digitaly you obviously are already online and the game is being verified then. If I'm installing it from a disk then a connection would be required at the time of installation. If I dont buy or install a game in say, a months time, there should be no reason for me to have to check in every 24 hours..to do what, verify games that have already been verified?
MS just needs to come out and say their system is a digital system. That's all it is. In this regard, it actually does have some advantages over the current digital marketplace. However they're trying to pass this thing off in the guise of having the choice of being a physical/digital system, kind of like what we have today. None of these policies make sense, except in the case of it being an all digital system. If they did so, then at least people could buy it for what it is, instead of it trying to be a regular game system, which it obviously isn't. It's more like a SteamBox, with a few nice features added in, and likely a few more restrictive policies in place. Maybe those early rumors were true, MS was looking to go all digital. I think it was Cliffy B that said at least one console would be all digital next gen.
Thats how I see it. MS wanted to go full digital but wanted to ease customers into it by still offering discs, thus requiring all their complicated DRM restrictions. They didn't do it smart or plan it out well though. As it turns out they probobly would have been better off going all digital. At least then they wouldn't need online check-ins every 24 hours. Trying to make discs function as digital downloads adds restrictions to those that would choose to go full digital.
So digital only games like Killer Instinct will be lost still?
real answer to why doesn't the xb1 allow u to just insert disc after 24hr offline is to authenticate and avoide modding and piracy...... there I said it for u..... it does keep ur library up to date but that's assuming u want to share or in a shared family group.... cause assuming u don't this has no upside to updating.... lets face it Nelson Xbox was probably the most easily modded console followed by the 360 and u guys just want a better grasp come next Gen to avoide having 3 consoles in a row going rampant to piracy I know u can't out right admit, the numbers and effort it takes to keep the amount of piracy off xbox live ....heck halo players were complied heavy with pirates copies u guys had 3 OS updates for 360 and multiple disc formats and still it wasnt enough to deter our get better control of piracy and I get it but either way I hope along the lines when this 24hr piracy check in provides u guys with comfort of ur own security we gamers benifit from it with free stuff and price drops for giving up some of our used to owner rights to accomdate what u guys are calling the future ..clearly a good suffer for the bad situation... remember u said games can be cheaper ....I hope ur right cause if ur just in it for u guys own benifit then ur gonna be in a very bad position being trusted ever again yours truly some random guy kolanji P.S red head is smoking hot
How long will I wait till a new game cost $50 brand new for Xbox?
