Why can't they just make STRICTLY a gaming system. People will be paying for so much crap that they don't wanna use.

The PC had the ability to do almost all of this for five plus years now. Even Kinect works better on PC than Xbox, HA! I really don't understand the hipe over consoles anymore. The PS2/Xbox era was the last great console cycle; now the consoles are just being recycled with slightly better graphics. Anyone who has played on the PC knows that the graphics of the "next-generation" of consoles is four years ago on PC. PC might be more expensive but if you want to talk about an all-purpose machine, look no further! You could buy a $500 laptop with an external graphics card plugged in that would play more beautiful games than their showing. This is just becoming really sad for console makers.

People are so naive... Xbox One will be competing with Apple TV, they'll announce the new Xbox later at E3. haha

They fooled everyone! (Just getting along with the trolls from xbox live community :D)

And there's isn't backwards compatibility because xbox 360 games will launch in the new appstore for windows 8, this was rumored for a really long time now for some reason...

The montage should be a single picture of an xbox "done" with a cut internet chord siting in a dumpster. Bottom line, xbox is officially the console we all will love to hate for the entire next gen!! lol I can't get my head around how huge this failure has actually become! And with each new update it gets worse! wow.

I can't remember who it was that said you can make a toaster that doubles up as a telephone, but it doesn't necessarily follow that you should (or words to that effect). I get the same sense with any consumer electronics that are pitched as the all-in-one home entertainment solution. I know this is an arms race of interaction, but first and foremost, I want a games console. And contrary to what Microsoft claims, I'm not afraid of my TV remote and I don't relish the idea of trading my remote in for an arm-waving, fist-clenching alternative. As for the Halo TV series, well, that's just a sideshow isn't it? What's that got to do with the games I want to play (after I've finished Skyping and watching telly and posting my latest headshot on Facebook and burning off 13 calories doing Kinect star-jumps and making a couple of rounds of toast)? Just give me a GAMES console that's better than your last one. I've got other devices for everything else.

nb. NOT a fanboy. Just a gamer.

Something delicious about an Xbox One video being preceded by the PS4 'blurry campaign' ad.

I don't know anyone who knows someone that plays fantasy sports. This feature could be left out.

Anyway, if XBox has built-in DVB-T tuner, i might get it for it's media center features. It look like my old VHS player from super early 90ties.If i buy it, i will probably go back to Nokia.

This was the worst conference/reveal I have ever experienced. 3/4 of it was talking about stupid shit which had to do with Kinect and watching TV. I will never prefer voice recognition and hand gesture over controller. It was horrible, but maybe our American friends will love this :p What was even worse is that COD Ghosts looks like a slightly better port of MW3 on a Wii U. It soo did not look like next-gen. Battlefield 3 was good but nowhere near Killzone: SF, but COD Ghosts was horrible. Why the f**k were people clapping? MS better do something during E3 to win over gamers or everyone will migrate to PS4. On top of that the console looks like a DVD player lol.

Can't wait for E3 where we will see both PS4 and XBO lay all their cards on the table.  As much as fanboys are so quick to bash anything that isn't the system of their choice, I really think both PS4 and XBO are going to knock it out of the park.  As a fan of games on PC XBOX and PS, this is exciting stuff.  I think MS had a great presentation and was a great intro on what the console can do outside of playing games.  This thing has a lot of potential as much as Sony fanboys want to destroy anything with an XBOX logo on it.  15 exclusives in the first year and 8 are brand new franchises..that's pretty exciting stuff as a gamer.  Sony also will never disappoint when it comes to exclusives.  I'm stoked about both consoles.

I dont get what all the hate against MS is all about here. Just because they are expanding to newer markets with their TV related features that doesnt mean that xbox is now a casual gaming console. 
With 15 exclusive titles, Kinect and TV related features, MS has done the right thing and I hope we see good competition just like we did with PS3 and Xbox360.

 It'll work if it's cost effective. 360 was profitable because its pricing.

If it's a subscription model like smartphones where it costs ridiculous price unless you sign up to a telecom contract, most gamers will probably just go with PS4 instead.

So "with all that power" all you could do with your game is increase the resolution and add lens glare...wow.

As an Xbox 360 and original Xbox owner since both respective launches, i have no desire to own this bag of turd.

As a 35 year old gamer that has played every system ever released!I actually like the XBOX ONE and its features!I might be naive,but I believe come E3 they will show us that gaming wise it's on par with the PS4!The Internet connect issue isn't one to me,my ps3,ipad,iPhone,pc,and xbox 360 is always connected!

The used game news I don't believe will be that big as it is now.!I Believe when it's all said and done they will have some rent games program for the XBOX ONE!I also believe you will be able to buy used games at GameStop and it will have the code to activate it,and it will not cost the full price!

I also believe Microsoft did the press conference this way to get all the grips and over all road map of this system laid out there!Then at E3 and PAX they will ease everyone's minds and the good times will roll!

@jdava Totally agree . I just don't see the point of owing a console . The console makers don't realize that by including features on the console like internet , TV etc , they're just turning the console into a type of PC which is a lot worse to interact with than the regular desktop machine . There's no comparisson basis between PC and consoles . Real gamers know that PC is the best .

@Mamamf why play 360 on PC? They probably require a gamepad, less graphic tweaks, and a horrible port just like they always are.

@wizardboyus Well to be fair, the 360 launch titles were not super impressive looking at the time of their release either relative to some of the other games out at the time for gamecube and ps2, and original xbox.

@waqar245 You got it right!  Enough of this fanboy nonsense.  I agree with you. It is pretty obvious that the XBO will play games and play them very well.  Why hammer that point home when that's going to be a given?  I was happy that they didn't just list out all the new games and show a bunch of game trailers.  That's what E3 is for.  All of the new features that the OS will offer are pretty impressive and to think that gaming consoles have come this far is amazing to see.  Hell, as a kid, I grew up playing games where you had to really use your imagination because the graphics were giant pixels on a screen that looked nothing like the cover art of the game.  Now, game cover art can barely do the games justice.  It is pretty cool to be part of this gaming generation and see how far games and consoles have come.

@Mrphenixlives Yep, you are correct.  MS even said before their event, that the reveal would be more focused on the console, the hardware, its features, etc. and E3 is going to be all about the games.  So anyone who was disappointed with what they saw, must not have known this fact going into it.  Even at the start of the event, one of the speakers stated up front that today they will get into the details of the console itself and E3, they will continue the conversation and reveal more of the games.

@newtech12 @Imatyta nope it's because it's the same as tv shows...there's someone in front (hidden from the cam) with a sign that tells the audience when to applause. and in return the audience is clapping just out of respect...i guess
