What XBox One is all about.

TV and Call of Duty, apparently.

I'm glad it is so unappealing in every way. I will wait for a much needed redesign 2 or 3 years from now. Even then I have no interest in a FIFA / COD machine so hopefully they will have some indies on board by that stage.

Someone said :
It will probably do well in Murica. Not so much in Europe / Japan.

Someone said (on a blog or review, I think) this was way too focused on the US, they said they should just drop the pretense and call it X-Box US.


For me this just highlighst everything that's wrong with Mycrosoft.

I'm of course very biased on this as I dislike Microsoft intensely since I had the misfortune of working there (one of the reasons I know own a Mac) and also my employer is a competitor so of course if this fails it kinda somehow benefits me.

What is it about Microsoft and terrible haircuts? Do they have an one armed barber on site or something?

Is there much about increased graphic performance? I have been reading a good deal of stuff but can't seem to find anything.

I read somewhere (I'll see if I can find it) that it is Skype centric.
Micro$quish paid gazillions for Skype when they bought it and haven't really made any money back yet. I think they are hoping to get all the gamers to become Premium Skype users paying a monthly fee.

The last thing I want to see when I'm watching a movie or gaming is an incoming Skype call. Skype is more suited to mobile phones.

Looks like the internets have settled on calling this new console the Xbone.

So what do people think of the widely rumoured restriction on used games? Apparently you won't be able to sell your games on Ebay but you may be able to trade in to big retailers like Gamestop, giving MS and the publishers a cut of the action.

Brutal! If I was thinking of getting one, after what I've read on the internet about it I won't be. It seems to be very restrictive when it comes to games and ownership.

I'm feeling the same - way too draconian for my taste. I hope Sony doesn't follow suit but they may be penalised by the likes of EA or Activision if they don't play along.

Anyone else get one of those Microsoft emails already asking us to buy it? A bit too soon.

Yeah...I can see how they might HAVE to go the same way but I hope they don't. I'd rather see them do something different rather than being a clone of the Xbone

E3 is a week and a half away so hopefully this issue will be cleared up then. Otherwise the bad PR will continue.
