It doesn't sound great so far. I mean, voice commands? I fucking hate voice commands. I'd feel like such a pillock shouting "Xbox on!" at my gaming device. Voice commands are a gimmick.
It has refined sensors, which means it's still going for that Kinect vibe, the one that nobody I know actually likes.
The Skype feature sounds good.
As for switching from game to TV, I dunno why I would want that. I can already switch to TV by using the remote.
The 'exclusive content' angle (free NFL content, hurrah?), and deals with Activision and EA Sports aren't beneficial to the user. They are just a signal that Mircosoft is yet again trying to monopolise a marketplace.
The way resale and rights will be handled is worrying.
All and all, this comes across as a hegemonic bid to dominate home entertainment instead of focusing of delivering a platform for better gaming at an affordable price.
In summary: boo.
