So humble about his past, yet his contribution to the gaming industry is hard to ignore. As a speaker, Cerny seems confident and very down to earth.

Even if he was an awful speaker, he still designed a KILLER system... I'm impressed by facts, not words.

Fact: Unified GDDR5 memory.
Fact: Hardware video encoding.
Fact: Zlib hardware decompression.
Fact: Heuristic bluray precaching system.
Fact: ARM secondary chip to system processes. (all 8 AMD cores to games).
Fact: The more featureful controller in history.
Fact: Slim size case with inner power supply.
Fact: 50% more GPU power than competitor.
Fact: Able to download and update in suspend mode.
And much much more...

Hell yea! I'll buy this system even if the speaker was an ape!

Awful speaker? His speeches remind me of bob Ross and his explanations of what he's doing on the canvas....happy little clouds man..

He's a 'no bullshit strait to the point' kind of guy. I would hardly consider him a bad speaker

madpuppy1982d ago (Edited 1982d ago )

he is actually a very respectful person from what I have observed from his speeches and conversations. He stays on point and gives the information that people want to hear. that is the sign of a good speaker that knows his stuff.

APES for president.

Those facts were good, but that last commment was awesome.

You forgot the Hardware audio chip, that handles the cross-game-chat streams, and can handle 200 concurrent mp3 streams in-game.

Cmk01211983d ago

Agreed on this, clear message and he doesn't come off as smug

Bathyj1983d ago

I hate that Phil Spencer precisely because he looks so smug with himself. I don't know why, it just really irks me like he thinks he's smarter than he is.

Narutone661983d ago

Add Major Nelson to that list. He's so condescending when answering questions from Angry Joe.

madpuppy1982d ago (Edited 1982d ago )

I feel the EXACT same way, He looks like a smug [email protected]$$
Like the kind of person that would mock you and make weird noises when you are trying to tell him something serious, because your opinion means nothing to him.

Yeah i hate xbox. Lets bash it

ThatCanadianGuy5141983d ago

It's all out in the open when he presents his product.No BS from him and he doesn't treat me like a complete moron.

I knew right away i would not be buying Xbox U the minute that guy actually announced "5 billion transistors" and was serious about it.My jaw was on the desk at that point.The Cloud nonsense sealed the deal for me.PC/PS4 for me next gen.Just like it was PC/PS3 for me this gen.

MS needs an overhaul on their entire PR team.None of the people we've seen over the last few months should ever speak about Xbox in public again.

BTW every time i see a picture of mark cerny's face i think of the face of crash bandicoot.
