Great video and good to learn more about the improved Kinect part of the package. Now if we can get some great games to use it with ...

Interesting video. Thanks GameSpot was showing this.

what is really interesting is that the "company" that cares so much about gamers was not at PAX nor comic con in any real capacity.

Sounds like the Xbox DOA is capable of profiling.

How much will the "Unlimited Cloud Storage" cost us?

This is too much better than the initial announcement and E3....

Even though I already saw 95% of this at E3 and on the announcement day coverage, it was very nice to see a fresh perspective; being reassured that I have limitless storage on the cloud is really key when comparing these consoles.

@Kelleyb4947 Remember the cloud storage isn't going to work for everything.  For games, most of it will still need to be stored on the hard drive.  The things that will work from the cloud will be the smaller amounts of data, whereas the largest stuff like most of the game itself will still need to be stored locally.  With the games getting larger, larger textures, etc., don't be surprised if you actually fill that hard drive up sooner than you expect.  

I'm not sure if all games will need to be fully installed to the hdd since they changed their DRM system, but I wouldn't be surprised if many will need to be simply for performance reasons.  We have already seen some pretty large installs on current gen, and with bluray that will only get larger.

Afaik the hdd in the Xbox One is not user serviceable/replaceable, but of course they have plans for extended storage.  Problem there though will be cost.  It's most likely MS will only allow you to extend storage through official MS devices, not generic external hdds.  You can bet that those devices will be substantially more expensive than the typical  market rate for storage.

@hystavito they already said you can use any HDD which uses a USB and it will function the same as the internal drive.  Try again

@hystavito They already allow you to extend the storage on generic hdds for the 360. That shouldn't change at all...
