Do you have to BUY all XBOX games through the internet? If so, can you show me proof of this???

Spot on matman01, I think you've hit the nail right on the head there mate, there won't be many differences between these 2 next gen consoles. So all the fanboys loving/hating this XB1 would be well advised to button it because as more details are released about the PS4 we'll all see both machines will be offering neigh on the same 'services'.

I own both a 360 and a PS3 so I have no particular axe to grind either way, to me this XB1 doesn't seem to offer any significant technological leap forward in home entertainment, it's just all spin.

So it does 'picture in picture' from various connected sources which my first 'HD ready' Panasonic TV was doing 8 years ago. It gives you limited control of your cable/satellite receiver, well I could set my Sky+ HD box to record through text messages and my mobile phone browser as far back as 2006. It has a blu-ray player, so did my PS3 when I bought it about 6 years ago. And I haven't heard anything to suggest all this connectivity the XB1 claims to offer even lets me access, never mind control and watch my Sky box as if I was sat at home like I can through my 4 year old Slingbox Pro when I'm on the move, be it around the UK or abroad. There's just nothing particularly ground breaking in any of the technology they've trumpeted so enthusiastically today. You can only hope they will be putting more of a shift in on the gaming aspect because let's be honest, at the end of the day it is still meant to be a games console first and foremost.

If it actually works like this, it'll be amazing. The games will come, 15 exclusives in the first year, and E3 is just around the corner

0:43 I already have that. It's called a "PC". Just sayin'.

New smart TV's have cameras, movement recognition, skype, browsers, even voice recognition to change channels, so let us see games and not something our TV can do without your little Box...

Lets face it people, the reality is that for all practical purposes the differences between the PS4 and the xbox one will be marginal across all areas, just as they were for the PS3 and xbox 360. 90% or more of the games will be across PC, PS4 and xbox one because economically they have to be, and that will also force the programmers to ensure that the differences between versions will be even more miniscule to prevent alienation of any one community.

I would also expect that the majority of buyers of these systems will be casual/non-gamers because that is the way the console market is heading. Consequently both consoles will be aiming to be universal multi-channel entertainment systems, to both justify development costs and maximise the market for the devices. The same is happening with tablet computers, except that they are coming from the other direction (started primarily with internet/movies/music but becoming more and more important as gaming platforms).

So if your a hardcore gamer, get a decent spec gaming PC. Otherwise, cut the fanboy crap and recognise that the days of a dedicated games console are a long time over.

Why would you watch TV while talking to someone on Skype? Either pause the movie or end the call.

So are we going to need to buy antivirus for the Xbox now?  A browser could open up malware and trojans that turn on your Kinect then watch and listen to everything going on in your house.  That's scary.

It's not surprising Microsoft have made the XBox One an all round entertainment console. It's just easier to create more revenue for them by encouraging gamers to buy movies and songs, subscribe to TV, order Pizza etc. They have even announced that used XBox One games cannot be played on other consoles unless we pay extra as well. Personally, I hate this new console. (Yes, I own a XBox 360 too) All the extra kinect bells and whistles are just money making coffee house crap. 


As long as PS4 remains focused on giving us good games and not focusing on extra unwanted services I am ordering one of those to go with my PS3.

Random ads filling most of your screen just like 360. Absolutely terrible! Not streamlined at all for accessing your content which should the be focus of the ui not "Buy this! or This! or Maybe This! oh ok you can get to your games now"

I'm pretty positive most of those features and stuff won't be available in my country... Croatia sucks... but it will be an issue with many countries, not every country is at USA standards... our TV and cable providers don't work this way... heck, we just switched to digital TV last year... many still has analog antenna...

I'm just waiting for the first kid with Turrets Syndrome to get one and have a fit. Where instead of saying Game of Thrones they end up saying Shit due to their fit.


Then the Xbox One shall proceed to show them videos of shit.

Is it just me or does anyone else like using the controller to maneuver through the interface?

It's quicker and more responsive; I've found when it comes to the Kinect.

I would have preferred to see more gaming in there, but, what was shown did look impressive - whether or not you would use it now is almost irrelevant.

When Apple created the iPhone & iPad they were ahead of the game. All MS have done is take what is currently being done over various different devices and truly incorporate it. This is how things will work in the near future. People don't want multiple controls and multiple devices for doing things, they want a singular device. MS will bring out a device that will appeal to a larger market and sell more units and in turn drive better development. Are they as groundbreaking as Steve Jobs was? Hell no, but they will do a good job and a year or two down the line we will wonder how we ever managed.

And don't think for one minute that Sony won't be planning the same stuff. The only difference between the two platforms is that one launched showing games and the other showing home entertainment.

Does this mean games will take a back-row seat for MS?? Most definitely not, they will just let the games speak for the themselves throughout E3.

I'm not a fan boy so i can say this easily......both PS4 & Xbox One will be brilliant. It's just down to individual taste that makes you decide which you purchase......plus how many friends you already have on your current console.

Stop hating, just enjoy the fact we live in such a great time where technology allows us these devices.

 I would have liked some details on the new internet explorer browser. Does it support FLASH? Is it comparable to a decent pc browser?

I hope Kinect is optional.  I don't want it.

@chasloyal  it allows you to do it all from one box you no longer need the sky plus hd box or the sling box pro .

@colin__23 E3, I think 15 exclusives in the first year is a bit much, especially when 8 of them are new IP's

@Scorpion1813 maybe you are having some sexy time over skype and want to watch something interesting in the meantime, if you know what I mean.

@tim1935  

Microsoft themselves are the most likely to do that. That's probably why they force you to use the kinect.

I think people don't like that its reveal is about TV services in America. I wanted to know it was a gaming machine, but it is not or it would be a priority at the announcement. It is a media box that happens to play games, which annoys me as the media stuff is half useless in Europe.

@tim1935 why don't you want the kinect? What's wrong with it? Its something that's very useful and amazing and people like u just spit on it.

@lilcurt1978 Where is there any suggestion, never mind a guarantee, that I will be able to log in to a dedicated MS website to control and watch my Sky box back home in Essex from anywhere in the world like I do with my Slingbox then? I'm not trying to be snotty with you, it's just I didn't hear any mention of it in this presentation, nor I have I read anything that even hints at it either.

@Pokemon18986@colin__23They just announce some exclusives, the announcement it's not a game...we will see at E3, but they are first party. Nintendo can have more first party exclusives than anyone so the third parties exclusives are the one that matters. At least that's what everybody says...

@Pokemon18986

If it's a good movie, I would pause it to talk to someone.
If it's a bad movie, I would turn it off and do something else.

Either way I wouldn't be doing both at the same time.

@sundfeld

But with Microsoft watching you through the Kinect, and tracking what you are watching for "market research" and advertisement purposes, would you really want to be doing such things.

Also, all those hand gestures would keep interupting the action.

chasloyal

@Stedmister @interceptor316 No mention of you accessing your home tv receiver wherever you may be through the internet like you can do with a Slingbox so I would say it's not even home network limited, never mind country limited.

@Joeguy00 @mogzino The certainly got to ensure there is ample UK coverage for it to be a success, i would hope they have started some talks with sky, bbc etc to make it worthwhile. Like you i was hoping for gaming, but sadly it wasn't to be. We know it's coming as they sold 90% of 360's based on gaming. 

They wouldn't risk ignoring the vast majority of their customer base. After all - for MS it's their last good device considering the failure of Windows 8 and Window OS phones
