not crazy about voice controls in general but that aside this sounds like the new hotness assuming they can pull it off without it being super buggy

Naming it "Xbox One" was a dumb idea. It's almost worst than "Wii U". Of course, MS can market the damn thing much better than Nintendo is currently marketing the Wii U, so there'll be less confusion.

lol whoever wrote that article never experienced the RROD. Also, they list EA partnership as a good thing.

Also "Xbox One" is a stupid name. The first Xbox came out in 2001.

I've had 2 different Xboxes and lived with people who had 3 others. I've never had RROD. My drive was starting to fail on the first one I had but I had it for like 4 years and played the shit out of it - what do you expect?

They better make sure that the voice commands recognize different accents or a lot of people are gonna get frustrated (myself included) very easily with it.

You could say that about the new google search or anything else. I think they've figured that out otherwise they wouldn't advertise that shit. Everyone remembers how annoying the voice training shit was in the 90s / early 00s

lol what a turd. instead of making it a replacement set top box it literally overlays its ui on top of existing set top boxes that are connected via hdmi. what a waste of an opportunity.

^^ but you don't have to interact with your set top box, so why is that an issue?
http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2013/05/xbox-one/

Quote :
"Chief among those—at least in the US—is HDMI pass-through, in which the cable box, satellite box, or similar device (e.g., the aforementioned cablecard-equipped TiVo ) connects directly to the Xbox One, which then passes the mediated signal to the television via an HDMI-out port.

Because of that direct pipe from your TV provider to the Xbox One, you can watch TV with varying degrees of Xbox overlay. It can look exactly like your plain old TV interface, being controlled with the original remote. Alternately, you can use Xbox’s electronic programming guide, which presents a lineup based on your favorite channels or tells you what your friends are watching and can be controlled via voice, gesture, and game controller. Or, thanks to Xbox SmartGlass, the second-screen functionality that Microsoft introduced in limited capacity last year across multiple mobile platforms, you can use your smartphone or tablet to change channels with a no-look flicking motion. (For more granular control, SmartGlass will eventually be able to turn your phone into a skeuomorphic remote control, able to emulate any other control device.)"

because you will have to interact with your set top box. its a pass through. like if you have a TiVo you're gonna see the TiVo UI right along side the xbox ui. only if you have a cable box that supports sending commands over hdmi (probably none of them) will it work.

also it means you still need to have a fucking shit pile slow tuning cable box. the entire point of the xboxo is supposedly removing complexity and instead its just another dumb box.

like if it was a set top box replacement then you could get into stuff like offering discounted xboxos with cable contracts. that would get Microsoft a massive number of new customers who don't give a shit about the latest rehash of terrible contard shooters like dog blops: ghosts.

its another wasted opportunity

there are two ways this works. either your cable box supports commands over hdmi or you connect the ir blaster on the xboxo to ur cable box in which case you get both UI overlays.

Just heard from someone (not 100% sure) that it won't allow used games. Dislike. If Sony allows used games on the PS4 then we can say goodbye to Microsoft as a console developer. If Sony were smart they would allow used games on the PS4 but not on the PS5.

^^http://www.wired.com/gamelife/2013/05/xbox-one-analysis/

This suggests that it might not allow used games or might require a fee to be paid.

Also, no backwards compatibility (which was expected).

^^ yeah if the cable box supports it, but who knows which ones do. for cable boxes that don't support it theres an ir out. either way it so fucking dumb that it doesn't replace cable boxes.

that's on the cable companies, not microsoft. i'm sure microsoft wants to be able to replace the cable box entirely.

Why even have discs then? Why not just fully downloadable?

because some people really want to be able to purchase it at the store, also it saves big chunks of data that you don't have to download. I'd bet they will also be available as download.

(some people still buy CDs and DVDs)

I for one like owning something tangible so I see the appeal though I have and do buy digitally if its the same price I'd like a disc and a case just for the freedom to take it, sell it, etc.

And some people bring consoles to be used in events without bringing their own discs.

(Granted, being able to play without the disc and not needing to be online will make it easier for fighting game tournaments to be organized)

I knew it wasn't going to be backwards-compatible but that doesn't mean it still doesn't sting.

remember too that we had past rumors about a smaller, secondary, set-top only box. maybe that and complete set-top functions in the ONE are future updates, if they get through the cable company bureaucracy.
