    Not bad, not bad at all. After all this is a real multimedia platform, its not just gaming :) But nice getting words out of the context

    This Abridged version by the guy who made the PS4 one is probably my favorite.

    When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

    So they made a machine that connects to your TV that focuses at making everything you do on the TV cooler, what's the problem here?

     

    I guess your phone shouldn't be able to play music, go on the internet and play games either?

    GAME TIL YOU DIE!!!!

    The main problem is that this was their chance to show where they stand in the future of console gaming.  They instead just focused on things such as Television.  Even if they manage to do well at E3, gamers now know where they stand.  But this isn't just a random assertion on my part (well, actually, it was a rephrasing of someone I agreed with on another forum).

     

    There is news going all around that MS has confirmed some troubling things that, if true, are pissing people off.  Now, I say this as a PC gamer who has sold his PS3 and Xbox360 some time ago due to never using it.  

     

    These sources claim that one needs to have to connect to the internet once every 24 hours to play on the console.  You must also always have Kinect (or whatever it was) turned on and attached for the console to even work.  In addition, you will be unable to play used games on the console (you will have to pay a secondary fee) if the game was already installed on another system (which it checks with the mandatory 24 hour internet connection).  Add to that that the system specs are indefinitely inferior to the PS4 (which also sucks for us PC players, as the lowest common denominator will be chosen when making games so that they don't have extra work in making extra textures and using advanced graphics for the more powerful systems when the peak is finally reached).  This could be read up more in depth by Quizzical's thread located here:  http://www.mmorpg.com/discussion2.cfm/thread/385693/page/1

     

    It's not something I really pay much attention to, but I would be pissed and almost heartbroken if I were an Xbox fan.

    My...T.v. connects to my t.v. and makes everything i do on my t.v. better....it's why it's called a smart t.v.

    My GAME CONSOLE...should make everything I do with GAMES better.

    Now you see the problem. It's like my dvd player trying to be a toaster.

     

    The Deep Web is sca-ry.

    Aye, the presentation is disappointing for gamers, but not so for the mass market.

    It's time to accept the fact that this console isn't as dedicated to gaming as its competitors. It's a multi-purpose device that can also play games.

    Hilarious video. Surprised MS didn't call it Xbox : Fail cause that's really what it's gonna be. Not that the PS4 is gonna be any better.

    I already have a cable box for watching television. That includes sports and movies.

    I already have to pay a monthly service fee to do that. I don't want to pay an additional service fee to do what I'm already able to do.

    I can't help but think Microsoft is kind of flailing about, looking for additional revenue streams, but they are doing it by trying to get people to pay for things that people are already paying for, or that people can get for free.

    I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

     I am not sure who they are aiming for with this stuff. Do they want my mother to buy an xbox for her to watch tv on?  The problem is not that the xbox can do these things.  You know what a VCR was really awesome for back in the day? It made a fantastic clock!  I never once heard Samsung brag about clock making skills though.  I think that they should focus on getting people who want to play video games... too buy it. Those are the only people who will buy it any ways. Do you know any non game player who would purchase something that is going to be this expensive for channel surfing?  You are better off hooking up a computer to your television

    Already do. And you're right, it is better.

    EA CEO John Riccitiello's on future microtransactions: "When you are six hours into playing Battlefield and you run out of ammo in your clip, and we ask you for a dollar to reload, you're really not very price sensitive at that point in time...We're not gouging, but we're charging."

    Here's the instructions on how to set the clock on a VCR

    I think they hit every major chord with previous Xbox owners.

    Halo - Check

    Call of Duty - Check

    Sports - Check

     

    What else were you expecting? Fable?! A franchise that would probably do better on Playstation. At least it comes out on PC when they makem. I'm moving more and more towards strictly PC gaming myself. Unless Sony comes out with some great exclusives which they usually do. I couldn't live without my Little Big Planet!!

    They confirmed that television will only be available only in US at launch. Since i'm from small country in europe, i would probably have to wait years before it will be possibly to watch it. With fee for used games and required internet connection once every 24 hours to play games i just can't imagine my self buying xbox. 

    PS4 sure looks like a better option at the moment

  • TymorisTymoris AthensPosts: 360Member
    400-500 dollars to be able to watch television and play another COD online? Sign me up and make sure to include all additional services because obviously Microsoft assumes no customers that use the Xbox know about PCs. Probably it never came up near the watercoolers.
