It's called Xbox One or a reason AKA Xbox On, but i bet Xbox fans don't care and still buy it. Say what you want about Sony but they don't pull this crap, and have there Hardcore gamers in mind unlike Microsoft.

The consumer in general doesn't care. (not just xbox fans). Sony is leaving it up to pubs meaning it'll probably happen any way on sony systems.

WAT!

The Xbox One doesn't have to be online all the time, but it does have to be online. Not just once in a while—once a day, according to Microsoft vice president Phil Harrison.

Kotaku: If I’m playing a single player game, do I have to be online at least once per hour or something like that? Or can I go weeks and weeks?

Harrison: I believe it’s 24 hours.

Kotaku: I’d have to connect online once every day.

Harrison: Correct.

I will say that this is probably the easiest thing that they could change. If there's enough negative feedback I wouldn't be surprised to see it changed well before the system releases.

But weren't opinions with this concept not made clear through the whole #dealwith it mess? They're trying to force this one way or another.

Who knows? Maybe they're testing this plan (if it is how it will work) to see how the idea will fly in place of an always on approach. There's plenty of time before the console releases.

Intresting on the Video about the new XO controller, Kinect 2.0, and the console. Pretty Positive overall.

Finally, Xbox owners will beable to use a functional D-pad! :P Seriously though, props to MS for coming out with NextGen Rumble feed back which should be pretty interesting....While Kinect 2 has the potential to be pretty damn awesome.

Still, i'm baffled at the console design....it's so, boring? Oh well, it's what's in the box that counts, a few exclusives consisting of Gears of War, Fable and Halo.lol I kid, I kid.

Ok, I've only heard a bit but please tell me I've been missinformed.

  • Won't function without Kinect
  • Won't be backwards compatible

I understand the backwards compatible but the kinect thing? Is it gonna come packaged with one?!

Well Kinect is built into it but I believe you can use a controller and/or a Smartglass to control things heck they even demonstrated using a cell phone to navigate around on the Xbox One.

As for backwards compatible they didnt say one way or another but I don't see why not, of course they could be saving that for E3. But honestly I dont see why backwards compatibility is a must have for systems nowadays. I mean dont get me wrong its a nice feature but it isn't a deal breaker. I mean the Nes, SNES, N64, Gamecube didn't have backwards compatibility and no one complained about it or didn't stop the system from selling.

It will be a dealbreaker once you hear this news: it apparently is not compatible with XBLA titles either. So Sony and Microsoft dropped the ball on that one...and yet Nintendo has the best backwards compatibility atm with the Wii mode. IRONY!! :D

Yikes. Based on what I've heard Microsoft seems to be digging itself a deep hole. No backwards compatibility, requires Kinect, a fee is charged when putting a bought game in a different system, and online connection is (practically) mandatory? No thank you.

I'm looking at what Microsoft did today as a truly positive move on their behalf.
All these ideas are for Microsoft to lure "casual gamers" (for lack of a better word). These ideas we saw today were vital for an all-in-one system Microsoft is saying they want today. But I think this was a day just to let all that stuff out of their chest, so in E3, they can talk about what the gaming community really wants.
They got all that hardware stuff out of the way so when NBC, and CNN talks about the Xbox One has, a casual gamer can be lured. Getting Microsoft plenty of attention for one day. The chaotic E3 is harder to grab attention from the media.
They planned it this late so all those who think of the Xbox One negatively won't have it resonated for too long, because E3 will be solely on what the gamer wants (hence not showing us all their planned IPs) and proves it more with the countdown to E3 that shows up immediately after the conference.
I strongly believe Microsoft made a great move today, and whatever mistakes they made this afternoon will be resolved in June.

Just read Digitally Downloaded's thoughts on the reveal (written by former NL forum member @Bankai), and they weren't impressed at all.

They felt like MS has either forgotten how to appeal gamers, or they only want gaming to be a minor, side aspect of the device.

Pushing all the gaming news to the second half, featuring a very minor amount of gameplay footage, with only a vague throwaway promise of 8 new IP's, shows that gaming simply isn't a priority with the Xbox One (cemented by the fact that their big HALO reveal was for a TV series).

They mentioned that the "all-in-one" direction MS is taking with the device isn't a bad move (it actually makes lots of business sense), but at the same time, gamers are the group that pay attention to console reveals, so not courting them in this kind of presentation was either do to ill planning, or because MS simply doesn't care for them anymore.

Furthermore, they mentioned that they made poor decisions in choosing what "all-in-one" features to show off. The NFL deal is meaningless to anyone outside of the U.S., making it a poor choice to highlight during a global reveal (many other features seem U.S. only as well).

I'll be getting the Xbox One as my "extra" console to compliment my Wii U.. So far I'm excited, the controller looks awesome (unlike the awful PS controller) and I'm sure that it will have awesome exclusives!

What will happen on Sonys system? Sonys already said what won't and will happen. But as long as your happy hay, you would have to be mad to defend Microsoft after Xbox On

Of course Microsoft loves there fans, i would with Xbox On, sorry i don't understand how restrictions are a good thing no matter who does it...

Funny, I actually used to call the original/2001 Xbox as "Xbox 1" to differentiate it from the Xbox 360. Looks like people are going to have to use "Xbox 2001/2002" from now on.

Just face it, gamers are not their #1 priority. It was clear as a bell. PS4 and Wii-U picked up some extra sales today. Microsoft is going after another demographic.

HUh dfine gamers. I'm seeing a lot of positive press coming from the regular games and not the hardcore forum fanboys. Guess which is the minority

Also sony is letting publishers choose what to do with DRM which is infinitely more dangerous than having it controlled. .
