Hate it when you're on a kill streak and someone calls you? Can't stand when you answer the call and the person on the other end has something stupid to say? Then MS have 0 feature for you, but hey, you can switch to TV by saying watch TV while playing, that's amazing!

No talk of costs of anything, could be that they haven't decided yet, could be that both the console and Live are expensive. A little nervous.

- Fifteen exclusives, zero were shown

- The first half-hour was devoted to television and voice commands

- Used games are blocked/tethered to XBL account

- Most of the "games" shown were of old franchises.

- The one new reveal was a blend of a live action scene and CGI

- Little discussion on actual hardware specs

- Too many corporate executives discussing entertainment hub initiatives rather than game designers discussing actual games.

@Nintendological Actually *2* exclusive were shown: Forza Motorsport 5 and Quantum Break. Granted, what was shown was cutscenes and trailers, but it was still shown.

But I still thought the whole thing was "Meh." It was supposed to make us excited and ready to watch the E3 footage to learn all the details, but the only thing of any interest to me out of the entire hour was the reveal that Steven Spielberg is producing a Halo TV series -- which will be a "premium" service. And Spielberg never mentioned the show. He just said that he used to play Pong, and that video games have evolved since then, to be almost on a par with movies.


I was a little excited to see the reveal, curious about the new console. Then I found out it's a glorified cable TV box, powered by Kinect, and that it allegedly plays games. Now... I don't care about the next XBox, anymore.

conference was a joke!!!! Who the hell cares about fantasy sports where gaming is concerned. All they talked about was TV, Sports, Movies, and more Sports. This generation, I was all about the 360 over the PS3....but if this reveal is a sign of things to come, the PS4 is looking more impressive....

@CraZkid37 I didn't get to see the whole thing but I didn't see anything about the specs like Sony showed right off the bat and said this is how powerful the PS4 will be. MS showed none of that and it scares me.

@CraZkid37

Because the XBox is supposed to be about gaming, gaming & fucking gaming. Having a reveal that spent more time advertising the fact that it's a fucking gigantic hulk of a DVR that lets the tiny minority update their fantasy sports teams in real time than showing any games means that it's a total fucking disappointment. The fact that you even had to ask the question yet you're on this site is really fucked up dude.

@CraZkid37 their website got hacked, they said you have to pay extra to play used games, it forces kinect. They partnered with EA. it has a crap name. No indie talk at all

"Microsoft's next-generation Xbox--the Xbox One--will not require a constant Internet connection to function, the company confirmed today following its reveal event. "No, you don't always have to be connected," Xbox boss Don Mattrick said on Spike TV. "Gamers can calm down; we've got you covered."

@MoronGotMyName @mora616 No, it's true! That's why the X1 is all about the TV and talking to your friends while you watch TV and update your fantasy league.

Oh, and I think there was something about some games in there somewhere. Maybe.

@xotheusedguyox Sounds like a 360 with better graphics but with restricted features and no games.
