@Tasuki When I use my dads laptop I have tape over the cam. And when I am not using my Kinect I unplug it.

@Son_70 oh no! I am not saying solely gaming. Your missing everything I have said. The main focus should not be on entertainment. That is why people switched over to Sony. Microsoft is losing a lot of fans for this reason. I love the fact I can do lots of things on my 360. I love watching movies. I love the fact Microsoft has it. The fact is where I can skype and plays games at the ssametime. So what they need to do is focus on games first and then entertainment.

I agree witt your 1,077 post, but the rest was pretty BSie. You didn't even mention GCN as a pure gaming device along with the Xbox/PS2. That's pretty questionable, because GCN was the only thing doing only game like they always have. That's even at a time when they were equal for the most part, with PS2 being weaker and only having DVD playback to beat Sega along with Xbox. I think that's where you're mixing stuff up.
DVD playback and media, IMO has never mattered. The "I got a DVD player right there" argument might sound repetitive, but it's legitimate.
It's not anyone wanting less, or more from their console besides gaming. It's how they go about it.

I think Microsoft still does media better than Sony, but that's not the main appeal. Gaming is always first, and I think these companies get that, that's why I stated it's a side thing.
"Here's our gaming machine, here's what it can on the side".
Nintendo is doing video features as well. That's more proof that it's not that big of a deal. The point is that people want Microsoft to talk about games instead of the other stuff.

The games will happen, so I wouldn't be taking this media thing to heart so much. That's just me though.

EDIT: I just wanted to bring up the GCN thing, because even though I've never really liked PS, I never just blatantly ignored it's presence. That's basically what you just did.

Problem is microsoft is a technology company (more importantly a services and devices company). They were up front the four weeks before when they announced the may 21st event was going to be mostly media with not that many games. It isn't their fault most gamers seemed to have a moment of first grade reading comprehension at that time.

Its like complaining that Google focused too much on chrome at last weeks breakfast conference.

I don't think you get what i'm saying, it was the announcement of a brand new gaming console, you must of heard the saying your first impressions etc? First impressions are often more significant than you might think, Sony's a technology/entertainment company too. The importance should not have been placed on the TV stuff first, that should have come last. Your not buying a console because you want to watch TV etc, your buying it to play games. It's like trying to sell a 4K TV but playing music.

I ignored it because it was a pure gaming machine. The PS2/Xbox weren't and started the trend we see today. (you could argue if it was the PS1 since that thing was a good CD player.

Actually the PS2 having a DVD player contributed to a lot of its sales like blu-ray did for the PS3. Similar to the PS3 the PS2 was a cheap and early blu-ray device so eople picked it up, The stragety worked wonders with the PS2 but failed somewhat with the PS3. (PS3 had a very slow start despite helping blu-ray kill HD-DVD)

WAT!

I planned on buying a xbox one based on the video content. As a mediafile and cord cutter all the stuff they showed me were much more compelling than say another Final Fantasy Game might be on the way but you have to wait a minute to get there. It helps I actually follow these companies (the big three Google/apple/MS at least) and I was familer with all of the development studios Microsoft had started up and the 1 billion dollar budget they had put away for games so I wasn't worried.

Plus they straight up said that there was no point in talking games (they did talk Forza, Quantum Break, EA,Collar of suty, and has a teaser revel of the games UI) when E3 was right around the corner. So they chose the segmented route to show off the hardware and one part of the overall vision of the console its self.

The reason they didn't show much is because they didn't want to fall into the Sony trap. Sony arguably only showed off one exclusive game for the PS4 at E3, and the rest of their conference was a rehash of the Playstation meeting a playing it lazy becuase microsoft decided to screw up. Comparng just games announced microsoft had much more and when you compare launches. (granted sony could have more behind closed doors for gamescom and TGS)

PS4
Knack
Killzone Shadowfall
Drive CLub

Xbox One
Dead Rising 3
Killer Insticnt
Lococycle
Zoo Tycoon
Kinect Sports Rivals
Project Spark
D4: episoide One
Ryse Son of Rome

WAT!

SCEE CEo Jim Ryan spoke to Gamereactor earlier this month and said, There’s a lot coming. I’m sure you heard from Shuhei [Yoshida, president of Sony Worldwide Studios] that he has, just from his studios, 30 games in development. 20 are going to ship within the first year of the console’s life and of those 12 are new IPs, so there’s a lot going on, it’s just that we need to keep stuff back. We’ve got Gamescom for us Europeans and we need something to show at Gamescom.”

The PS4 launch price is a statement of intent on how focused Sony has become, the CEO of Professor Layton studio Level-5 has said.

"I think anyone can look at that and think this is cheap! Putting cutting-edge PC specs into a game machine that costs just a few hundred dollars really brings across how serious SCE is about this generation," he said (via Polygon).

I agree with both your post. First impressions are always good and Microsoft failed at their first presentation before the E3. Sony has done very well and they have a lot more to announce!

That's all good and fine, but for those of us that didn't care about DVD(I was 9 years old), DVD didn't mean much and all we cared about was Smash Bros. and Luigi's Mansion. I understand it helped sales, but the Xbox had DVD, too, and it didn't mean as much. GCN and Xbox were better machines to actually play video games on, but the value wasn't there in comparison to the PS2.

If the Kinect doesn't have to be hooked up that's another reason to want the Xbox One and it gives me hope that a Kinect-free bundle will be released by sometime next summer so I don't have to wait until late 2014 to buy the system.

You may be right, but the way MS is back tracking on a lot of things I wouldn't be surprised if there's a Kinect free bundle by next summer. If not, I'll just wait until next holiday season to get the console.
