    Default Xbox One Discussion

    This was the general consensus about the Xbox One Reveal:



    I get the idea that integrating all the living room's devices onto one box is neat, but it's benefits are definitely going to vary based on where you live and your current TV subscriptions.

    For Gamers, they said there are 15 unannounced exclusives coming to Xbox One. Half will likely be for Kinect, but for core experiences, we'll have to see.

    E3 is on the way, but my initial impressions of Xbox One are mostly negative.


    What are your thoughts on the console and its features?

    Saw very little to sway me away from the PS4, and even some proper teasers of exclusives would have been nice. After all, surely it's the first-party games that will sell a console over its rivals? Round one to Sony for me I think.

    My biggest concern is that Pre-owned fee for XboxOne. Basically all games have to be installed to the HDD. If you bring then the disc to a friends house and put it in their system, on their account, you have to pay a fee to use/install it.

    Obviously this is a flat out "hell no" when it comes to getting the console, but have Sony 100% confirmed that this feature isn't on the PS4 as well? I can't find a source.

    100% unimpressed. Laughed so hard when I started yelling out what I thought was going to happen, and low and behold I was 80% accurate. All I took from that whole presentation was SPORTS, losts of sports, something about movie directors, Steven Spielberg, Halo TV show, Call Of Doggy. Never mind how ambiguous they have been about "online all the time" and the pay to play pre owned nonsense. I hope they focus more on games at E3.

    The biggest highlight for me was Infinity Ward's enthusiasm, about the fact that Fish now move out of the way when you swim past them. This is the feature that gamers have been longing for their whole lives.

    Here is a shot of the back of the Xbox One.

    As you can see it's pretty standard, with USB 3.0, Kinect port, ethernet etc. The most interesting part is that it has two HDMI ports. HDMI Out, for connecting to your TV, and HDMI In, which I'm guessing is for connecting to your PS4, so that you can use Kinect's voice recognition to switch seamlessly to the better console?
