We will have 2 Xbox Ones. During Thanksgiving this will get some game time in the living room, along with Skype for the group calls to the family, that didn't make it.

The upstairs Xbox One will be non-stop COD or Battlefield by the nephews. Should be fun!

I switch from Xbox to tv all day long watching football and soccer mostly. Snap and instant switching will be a really nice feature.

Plus, I've heard the windows 8.1 global search is a reason to upgrade all by itself. Voice search on Xbox One will be a real time saver over my super slow cable remote.

Originally they didn't include a headset, because you don't need it wirh Kinect, but the interwebs freaked out once again, so they added it back in. I probably won't use it much of the time, unless i don't want others hearing voice chat.Headsets were required for voice chat last gen. On Xbox One i'll use it less often, because it's one less thing to worry about.

Yes, and her stock options from last quarter will be worth more than Sony's $35m in profits from this quarter.

She'll be ok not focusing on COD's resolution. She's busy focusing on revenue and earnings. :-)

I try to make rational comments, but it's rare to get rational, thoughtful responses back. Too bad, but every once in a while i'll have fun with the naive fanboy comments.

Posting an article on a gaming forum from Microsofts CFO probably causes a lot of readers to get that "Monkey solving a math problem" look on their face.

Business is not their strong suit. Saying, "Xbone sucks" is in their wheelhouse. :-)

LOL! It's cracks me up at how myopic some on here can be, but most gamers experience with business involves their career at McDonalds making flipping burgers and their experience with stocks involves mom making them chicken soup.

Sony made $35 million in profit last quarter. Microsoft made over $5 billion. Yes, that's $5 billion as in 50 times more in profit. Microsoft is spending $100m in advertising at launch and their online transaction revenue is up 25%.

The Microsoft CFO isn't paying attention the the Xbox One, because of a few launch games. Microsoft is in this to win it and even though a lot of gamers think people don't watch TV or use Skype (31 million users and soon to grow) they do.

Microsoft sees the bigger picture and as a gamer i actually want what the Xbox One is delivering. I do more than games. I'm not alone.

Interesting facts. Microsoft is spending $100 million in advertising for the Xbox One launch.

Sony corp made $35 million in profit last quarter. Microsoft made over $5,000 million (ie $5 billion) in profits last quarter. Microsoft's online transaction revenue was up 25% last quarter year over year. People laugh about the PS4 is for games and the Xbox One is not, but this generation is about entertainment and making money.

Microsoft wants to win. The next 7 years will be interesting. Contrary to popular opinion Sony did not "win" this generation at E3.

I believe you just say, "Xbox Snap Skype" and it moves to the upper right corner.
