The best summarized conference is still the 2006 Sony one.

To be fair though, every iteration of the Xbox has been a PC shoved into a console box and stripped of most of its functionality. Its not as hard to crack an Original Xbox with little more than a flash drive loaded with a few files and some know how on what you're doing so that you don't brick the bloody thing by accident. And while I haven't payed too much attention to cracking 360s, I wouldn't be surprised it the internal structure is PC enough for simple instructions gathered from the internet to bypass the front end, nor would it surprise me to see the same case hold for the Xb1 as well.

I do wonder if it's that easy, but that might just be a case for why they should've stuck with PowerPC. But then with how the Wii got cracked and the PS3 in the long run I have a feeling chip architecture doesn't really mean much, just the software, so it goes back to them needing to keep it secure on their end.
The best summarized conference is still the 2006 Sony one.

I'm not sure anything CAN top "giant enemy crabs." Especially in the context of being "based on Japanese history."

Conference summarized.

And here I was thinking "Why couldn't I stay awake through the whole thing?"
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

Here's What People in Japan Think of Xbox One -- Kotaku

Xbox One | All the issues pertaining to the reveal summarised in one thread -- NeoGAF

・Forced online activation for all games
・Complex used games system that is anti consumer
・Charged fee for playing used games on non linked profile
・Console that needs to be connected to internet every 24 hours to play games
・Very few games shown at the event
・Massive emphasis on TV, services and non game related stuff
・Rumoured (relatively weak) hardware confirmed
・DDR3 confirmed instead of GDDR5
・Only 5GB of the 8GB ram available for games (a whopping 3GB reserved for the OS)
・No self publishing for games
・Epic PR disaster with conflicting reports from Microsoft and it's heads
・Xbox support on twitter going AWOL
・Microsoft's failed attempts to correct PR with contradicting FAQ's, vague responses, misinformation, lies etc
・Live TV available in US only at launch, requires separate device
・Lots of announced services are for US only
・Kinect needed to be plugged in for Xbox One to function
・Over emphasis on Kinect
・Always watching and on Kinect is a tad creepy
・Xbox One having non-replaceable Hard Drive's
・COD Ghosts not looking that great (and the only game that had actual direct gameplay shown)
・Xbox One not being backwards compatible with the 360
・Only HDMI for output, leaving people unable to use composite or component cables
・Console quite large whilst still also using quite a large external power brick
・No headset included
・Xbox One being called Xbox One...
・And more...?

XBOX. GO HOME.

Conference summarized.

Love it.


The funniest thing though is that I can see why they called it Xbox One since Microsoft probably believes that Xbox Won. Yeah....no. (And given the alternatives of going with 720, 1080, or some stupid shit they went with the latter.)
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

If this thing does get released and Gamestop does carry it, I hope I'm not working there anymore because there is no way I would be able to sleep at night knowing I had even a small hand in unleashing this monster on the public.

Well that's a given, I'm just saying I hope things work out before this is released.

At least you're lucky to even have a job. :(

Combo breaker!

I read something that brings me a bit of hope. I think it's pretty obvious that MS is not even looking at Japan with the XBOXONE. With that level of effort, I would be pretty stupid to keep the Idolmaster serie as a MS exclusive instead of jumping ship.
I'm looking forward to perhaps finally playing an Idolmaster game =)
