Yeah, they basically are selling it to sports enthusiasts now. 40% of that entire conference was sport related.

The cablebox integration is stupid. Guaranteed you can't use it without xbox live gold, meaning when you say fuck it and don't renew you'll have to reassign your cablebox output to the tv again, which is nonsense. And what happens if xbox live is down? Do you lose the ability to use it? I have no faith in any of the kinect functions outside of its ability to make you look completely stupid when you attempt them and fail.

Plus side, the cinematics they showed were pretty. Quantum Break may prove interesting when they show actual play.

TASTY!

Xbox One blocks used games. Offline Pass confirmed -- Wired

ADMIN EDIT: NeoGAF's getting hit hard by traffic, putting in Wired link.

Edit #2:

Xbox One will not be backwards compatible with Xbox 360 games -- The Verge

"The system is based on a different core architecture, so back-compat doesn't really work from that perspective."

Welp. This is incredibly disappointing. I don't want to write off the Xbox One just yet, but this is a HUGE negative in my book.

i think im done with xbox. this coupled with the way they abandon consoles late in the lifecycle. 360 is mostly on life support yes ps3 is still kicking with exclusives.

Errr, didn't the first link already cover that? Nevermind Kevadu's point.

Looks like we have to wait till E3 for games. I kind of dig the look of the thing. simple and huge. fine for me.

Frankly if these account installs work exactly as we fear then I already don't give much of a damn about the console. PC will cover when I'm willing to deal with those kinds of restrictions, hell I have digital distribution PERIOD for that, I don't want shit on retail console games.

Saw the trailer of Call of Duty: Ghosts again. As someone who is more into Third-person shooters it does look interesting.

If the used game thing is exactly as it sounds, then nobody will care about the XBox One, because Gamestop and Best Buy won't bother stocking it. Even if Microsoft were to offer some of the used game fee to the retailers, it wouldn't matter because nobody would want to buy used games.

Basically, if Microsoft's goal with the XBox One was to take another step back from the games industry, they will certainly succeed.
