It's not the look or lack of games that bothered me about the console, it's some of its features. Having to pay a fee to let someone else borrow a game seems like too much, and I don't like the idea of the Kinect "watching" me.

It's carrying over negatives of a PC, and it's a very poor substitute for a PC at that. But, since it's for the television convenience, I guess it's not quite an undisputed dud.

Another subject left unmentioned during yesterday’s Xbox One unveiling is the question of Xbox Live Arcade and indie games. Microsoft has seemed to increasingly loose interest in both concepts over the last few years, and this has now culminated in the scrapping of Xbox Live Arcade and the refusal to allow indie developers to self-publish.

Instead all downloadable games will be lumped together in the new version of Xbox Marketplace and if an indie developer wants their game to appear there they’ll have to get a traditional publishing deal.

As you might imagine indie developers, never known for being slow to speak their minds, are not impressed with Microsoft’s attitude.

‘Let me tell you something: most indies I know already don’t want to publish on a Xbox console. publisher or no publisher’, tweeted FEZ creator Phil Fish. ‘Microsoft doesn’t care about indie developer’.

‘I tried to get excited about the xbox one, but failed’, chimed in Minecraft creator Markus ‘Notch’ Persson.

What is it with microsoft and there obsession with always-on?

Microsoft's Marc Whitten made the company's position clear when he told Wired that developers won't be forced to incorporate always-on features but then added, "I hope they do." In other words, no persistent connection required this time around, but you better get used to the idea, and don't be surprised when it tops the feature list of the Xbox Two.

From what I've heard, you won't be able to play the games.

Because any idiot knows the XportsBox One wouldn't be complete without the Kinect Sports line of games. Geez.
That's the only reason the thing plays games at all.

Well if you don't have a TV, all of the amazing TV watching capabilities TV of the Xbox TV One will be useless TV as how would TV work if you don't have a TV TV?

They cannot abandon the 360 for one simple reason:
Looking at the backlash the -359 got, the 360 will be their only money maker in the gaming sector.Microsoft is falling from one hole into the other. First they struggle with their PC operation systems (vista failed, got replaced with the much better 7, which got an unworthy successor much to quickly which will be replaced in a couple of months anyway....gosh) and now this.

The Xbox One will be fine. It'll have all the big third party games and Halo so if nothing else, the shooter-happy North American consumers will make the console a success. I still think of the two new consoles coming this year, PS4 will be the far better platform for gamers but I could see the Xbox console selling better again, especially since with the loss of MGS exclusivity, Sony no longer has a lockdown on the third party franchises that really helped make the brand the success it was in the PSone and 2 days.

Only including a link because it shows the "f" word a couple of times...and the very end is violent.
