I'm calling it were going to get the release date next month and the full OS show off in October.

Looks more like a Blueray player then a game console...

Avian fact of the week: The Moa, an extinct relative of ostrichs and emus that inhabited New Zealand, was the tallest bird that ever lived at 12 ft tall (3.6 m). It was also the only known bird to have no wing structure.

@WingedFish Well, considering that it's as much a Blu-ray player as a game console, I think that's okay. Microsoft has just as much a focus on multimedia as games when it comes to their systems.
At the very least, it's a clean UI, and with Kinect I can see it working.

Also, Titanfall looks amazing.

If there's one exclusive that will pull people into a system, this is it. And before you say "but it's also on PC," consider the fact that building a gaming PC costs more money than the XBOX One and actually takes time to do. And before you say "but it's also on 360," well, I doubt it will run as well. This will sell systems, even if you think it's for stupid reasons.

Best thread ever

Titanfall really just looks like a futuristic COD honestly, with big mech robots. lol in my opinion at least. If I ever end up playing it it'll be on PC. Hardly a system seller. Ryse looks awesome though I would love to play it one day, though I probably never will. I'm a huge history buff and especially love Roman history so that game is right up my alley. The UI looks okay though, not the best thing I've ever scene but still not the worst. I really do like Windows 8 and since that is the exact same thing I could potentially see it working.

I'd say that's a big system seller for a ton of people. Halo was a system seller and I know there were a few people at the time who probably said it was golden eye with robot dudes, or doom without online.

@thatguyEZ Call of Gundam ;)
For what it's worth, the people who think the game looks like many other FPS games on the market probably aren't the people who play lots of FPS games. Which means Titanfall isn't aimed at them.
I'm excited for it because of its verticality combined with its speed. There's a huge emphasis on getting up, be it the tall buildings or the jumping mechanics. Plus, with giant mechs on the ground, it can be hard to survive unless if you get up. Very few competitive FPS games focus so much on height. Yes, there's Tribes, but this seems to be like if you combined the height of Tribes, the speed of Call of Duty, the tactical nuances of Battlefield, and giant mechs all together.
That, and pretty much everyone who has played it seems to adore it. That kind of giddy adoration rubs off on you.

As for Ryse, it seems to have gotten better than when it was first shown during E3. The combat mechanics seem to be coming through. I hope it lives up to its potential.

Except I see it being on 360 hurting it's potential to be a system seller. It also means it's not a true next gen game.

Currently playing: inFamous: Second Son Gonna I've 100% it. Now just running around and doing the paper trail DLC.

Its a true next gen game. The 360 version is a port not even being handled by respawn. Its a source engine game meaning regardless of the power it uses it should scale to nearly everything.

IGN has been been having question answered by Microsoft every monday and here's the best or most important stuff.

Q: What happens day one when I buy the system? I bring it home, plug it into my TV and outlet then what? I realize there is going to be a setup for my TV, my language, etc. Can I just bring my profile over on a flash drive? Do I have to recover my profile over Xbox Live?

MARC WHITTEN, CHIEF XBOX ONE PLATFORM ARCHITECT: There is a quick setup to get your system connected and up-to-date. After that, getting your profile is as simple as entering your account’s email address and password.

Will I be able to get pre-order bonuses and special edition versions on digitally downloaded games?

WHITTEN: Yes! You’ll see more details here in the future.

Is there cross-console Party Chat? i.e. since it’s all “Xbox Live,” can people on Xbox 360s Party Chat with their friends on Xbox One?
WHITTEN: For a variety of technical reasons – including the sound quality that I talk about below – we don’t support voice chat between the two systems. You will still be able to send and receive text messages to friends on both systems, however.

OK, so we can't chat across systems. But can I at least see what my friends are doing on either console?
WHITTEN: Yes – you see your friends on both systems, including their rich presence. My friends that are still on Xbox 360, for example, might see that I’m on Xbox One, playing Ryse. Since I can have more than 100 friends on Xbox One, if I go back to Xbox 360 and I have more than 100 friends, it will only show me the subset of my friends who are friends with me on Xbox 360.

Are Xbox 360 Avatars transferring over? If so will any changes be made to them?
MARC WHITTEN, CHIEF XBOX ONE PLATFORM ARCHITECT: They are – your avatar will be on the system at launch and in fact, you’ll have some new options, including the ability to do full-body HD gamerpics. By the way, we should actually talk more about gamerpics too. We’ve moved from the 64x64 gamerpics on Xbox 360 to a full 1080p. They are beautiful, and you are going to see some really cool hero moments, like when you login to see personalized views of your games and other content.

Now with gifs of the game.

I hate that those games look fun. I like good games being successful.

But I also hate that even with no knowledge of what it is, I know that Waverace-like footage is too good to be a full, controller controlled racing game.

Its sad that Rare still has it techincally speaking but their working on Kinect Sports Rivals. The game is getting good buzz from Gamescom and Rare know know Kinect like no other but I hope its not their only project.

I am Happy that Microsoft/Rare are starting to farm out Older IP's like Killer Instinct instead of having a Rare who has no experience with certain genres make it.

On that note I'm suprised shadowrun returns isn't coming to Xbox One or 360.

Day one content for the Xbox One announced.

To commemorate the launch of Xbox One, Day One Editions are special game SKUs that include exclusive content and are available only through retail pre-order while supplies last, or via download on Xbox Live the first two weeks after launch.

Content is for first print of the launch games for retail, and the first two weeks for digital buyers.

“Forza Motorsport 5” Day One Car Pack

This three-car pack features amazing cars from Lamborghini, Audi, and Ford; each with a Day One-themed livery and custom tuning package created by the experts at Turn 10:

2010 Audi TT RS Coupe: Stuffed stem to stern with modern tech, the TT RS is the first TT model to carry Audi’s famed RS badge – a distinction that’s earned on the track from the moment you step on the gas.

2013 Ford Focus ST: Debuting with the same 247-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine from the much larger Ford Explorer SUV, the new Ford Focus ST packs a serious punch.

2011 Lamborghini Gallardo LP570-4 Superleggera: Like great sculpture, the Superleggera’s chiseled form is carefully considered for maximum impact. That’s where the similarities end, however, because this work of art is best appreciated when it’s moving at top speed.

Someone in the Xbox One beta has leaked the OS bits.

Look's good and look at the speed of it just in Beta. (would make an unfair Wii U comparasion but microsoft is a software company by trade and windows 8 and phone are pretty speedy)

You select the currently active game it seems like here:

Then it loads full screen similar to the Wii U

and end ups in the game

While you're in the game you press the Guide button the game continues to play:

Yep. I don't mind since I liked the first game and impressions are positive. But out of all the Kinect sports games this seems like the one that should be turned into its own thing.
