Xbox One: All-in-One Demo
Marc Whitten and Yusuf Mehdi walk through a comprehensive demo of Xbox One, including instant switching, biometric sign-in, Live TV, Skype, game DVR, OneGuide and more.
So, I noticed a few things about this particular video.
1- At 3:25 you can see his car going off to the left. With it's trajectory and speed, it would have slowed down and left him in the dirt on the side of the road. That's if the game continued while he was flipping through the other "slides". But of course, the game is suppose to pause. So, with that fact in mind, that last image (just as he passes the no.2 sign on his left) should be the same when he came back, correct? No. Fast forward to 3:40 and he is at an entirely different spot on the race track pointing toward a different location. Makes me wonder how much of this was pre-recorded/edited before hand.
2. Here's another one- When they are doing the Skype call, from our perspective (behind the two guys doing the demo), the one wearing the black shirt is on the left, and the one in the white shirt is on the right. However, the KINECT cam shows that it sees the guy in the black on the left and the guy in the white on the right. This is a fallacy. The KINECT camera should show the guy in the black on the RIGHT from its perspective and the guy in the white on the LEFT from its perspective. For a comparison, go to 9:00 when they show the recording of themselves and you can see that the recording shows them in the correct positions. Looks like that skype call was pre-recorded. tsk tsk
Very cool system but if only I was rich or won an auction on every2minutes, and if everyone I knew had one so I could talk to them like that lol.
Xbox go to sports = check
Xbox go to Keeping up with the Kardashians = check
Xbox give me an exclusive game with a good story = ERROR! We couldn't find "give me an exclusive game with a good story". Did you mean to say "give me a generic shooter" or "give me sports" ?
Xbox Go home,you're drunk !!!
This actually looks pretty awesome. I know people talk about wanting the focus on games, but I can say that personally, I would totally use the switching between TV, and games quite often. I play games during sports intermissions all the time ,and i really like all of this. There are pros to both systems, and I am getting both, but these features will definitely be great to have.
I actually think Xbone holds alot of great features. Personally I would never use the voice/hand movement commands. it just feels stupid, talking and waving at your TV. It's pretty awesome that the system can recognize you, and automaticly log you on where ever you are.
The interface looks fine, and overall I think it will be a great console for families (Skype, gaming etc. in one)
But all the extra features are not for me, and I will still get the PS4. I think alot of families will buy Xbone though :)
@Darkangel2154 probably you would pay an extra 50€ a year and wouldn't really work
@Sun-Tzu-GE ah another known Sony Drone.. Put away the Sony Press Kit nobody cares. BTW....Name on game on the PS3.5 with a good story ? I am sure you played them all. I got my money on the fact you haven't played either system.
@Xalaze I think most people will mess with the voice commands and then tire of them, as you say it just feels weird. The problem with any fancy new tech like this is the majority of time you are watching TV you probably just want to change channels and such. It will still be faster, easier, and less weird to just punch the number into your existing remote. Some of the guide stuff looks interesting, but again, your existing STB's guide will probably just be easier to use. At the very least, flipping through pages of channels in the guide will be easier done with a remote or the Xbox controller than using voice or hand gestures.
Having TV in one window and something else like a browser in the other could be cool for some people, depending on the size of your TV of course.
