Re: Microsoft Reveal the Xbox One

The games locked to the live account is a bit of a issue, fine for the PC as thats what were used to but could be a problem with the console crowd.

Re: Microsoft Reveal the Xbox One

Do you:
  • Live in 'Murica?
  • Like sports?
  • Like to constantly flip back and forth between your game and your TV?
  • Like to call your bro's to taunt them after something happened in sports?
  • Like AI Fish?
  • Hardly use a console for games?

Then the Xbox One is for you!

Re: Microsoft Reveal the Xbox One

Bear in mind that E3 is only around the corner, and that this was more of a tech demo to show off what the new console can do (specs, os, architecture etc). I think we'll be seeing a lot of good stuff in only a couple of short weeks.

We all know that it's going to play games. That's hardly a secret (and hardly needs an hour to demonstrate..) - and we all know next-gen graphics are going to look nice.

All the graphics in the world mean shit if there's no decent gameplay backing it up.. no matter of what platform it's on.

All the 'other stuff' such as the ability to play pre-owned games will be announced between now and launch.

You've also got to remember that Microsoft will be basing their decisions based on analysis of how people are currently using their platform. I.e. PLAY MORE GAMES ON IT AND THEY'LL DO MORE GAMES STUFF WITH IT.

Re: Microsoft Reveal the Xbox One

Anybody here who follows me on Twitter or Facebook has probably had enough of me complaining about this

It isn't even so much this "entertainment center" bullshit they're shoving down our throats. It isn't even necessarily the total lack of emphasis on video games that the big reveal had. It's the complete redundancy of the features they've shown so far that really pisses me off.

While I'm thinking about it, to respond to the post above about this being a tech reveal, this wasn't just a tech reveal, this was the reveal, the reveal they've been hyping up to the point of multiple countdowns. Literally anything about games would have been nice, and not just "Call of Duty" (said by somebody who rather likes the CoD franchise) or "EA Sports registered trademark."

Anyway, redundancy. So you can watch TV (on your Xbox, on your TV) without switching inputs. I can almost see the point of this, except I have a TV remote. I've had one for a long time. Switching from HDMI to cable isn't something that keeps me awake at night crying and defecating myself out of sheer desperation, praying to His Mighty Noodliness for an alternative, nor is yelling "Xbox! TV!!!" a massive energy save for me.

In fact, a thought that just occurred to me... I get annoyed with people signing in and out and sending me messages when I'm watching a DVD. Why the hell would I want that when I'm watching TV? Of course you'll be able to turn notifications off but then what exactly *is* the point of having the Xbox connected?

Of course, the entire input switching nonsense is negated by the lack of backwards compatibility, especially the lack of XBLA backwards compatibility. Essentially, I have to keep my 360 anyway, taking up precious space under my TV, and any time I want to have a quick game of Zeit2 I'll have to switch to the 360. So, um, yay for that I guess.

You can use the internet (explorerrrrrrrrrrraaaaarrrghhhhh) whilst watching TV! Whoop-de-doo, I'll make a note of that on the smartphone I have in my hand right now which I can use without pissing off everybody in the room who wants to watch Monk without me trawling Wikipedia for the medicinal purposes of grapefruit.

The inclusion of the Kinect is enough of a turn-off for me. How many people use theirs on a regular basis, just out of interest? Honest question. But the fact it is bundled and essential is going to jack up the price of the console by a lot, even for people with no interest in the motion detection. And, of course, developers will be encouraged to think of ways to use the sensor so Microsoft won't feel like they've widdled over us too much.

The pre-owned games system and forced install thing is convulated and strange too. So you buy a new game. You install it. Then you... I dunno, turn the disk into a drinks coaster? Throw it at a pesky neighbor? Put it in a sandwich and eat it? I understand that they're probably pushing for on-demand purchases but keep in mind this is exactly as they're rendering all on-demand purchases useless by removing Arcade backward compatibility.

I do not understand how anybody can be even slightly excited for this console, and I hope the enormous outrage over it forces Microsoft to pay attention and make changes before it's launched. Of course, I also hope that it rains f**king bacon tonight, so there's that.
