Xbox One announced

And they named it Xbox one. Looks bigger and sort of uglier than the current one. Also not convinced by the looks of the controller.

The guy presenting it also cannot sell a product for shits worth.

All in One seems to be the thing they are going for. Higher Kinect integration and the machine seems more intelligent. Will update with more later on.

Anyone else watching the live stream? Opinions?

Home screen still looks pretty much the same. Xbox is more integrated with the TV, so you can apparently tell Kinect to just switch over to the TV.

There is a system called "instant switching" that lets you quickly swap between gaming, music and live television. Voice recognition works well by the looks of it. Also, fucktons faster than the 360.

Kinect looks more accurate. You can now also multi task, called "snap mode". You can run multiple programs beside each other. Say, a movie and internet explorer.

They have still not touched the game controller.

Skype is also inside. They also now claim to have "The best living room camera", probably in the Kinect.

Edit: Live Stream here http://www.xbox.com/en-US/hub/reveal

Hardware:

5 billion transitors, whatever that is
8 GB of RAM
8 Core CPU
Blu-Ray drive
USB 3.0
500 GB HDD

"Xbox One Architecture"

3 Operating Systems
-something I missed while writing-, Windows 8 and Kinect something I think.

Kinect

Kinect included with every Xbox. Seems like a rather essential piece of equipment now since they have not yet done anything but mention that a controller exists.

Voice control is lightning fast they say. Kinect sensor is apparently very powerful.

1080p camera in the Kinect sensor.
"The binding power between your devices"

Controller, finally.

40 design changes.
New D-Pad
"Designed by gamers for gamers"
Developers given more control over the controller to give more immersive experience.


Xbox Smartglass

More integrated with the system


Xbox LIVE

Based on same membership. Get to keep current account then I‘d say?
More Cloud
Achievements, "Dynamic and changing"
More intelligent searching
Bigger matches and more players can now be hosted

Electronic Arts

Four EA sports games already in development
"EA Sports Ignite", new game engine or something. More realistic n stuff.
A lot more inbound in the near future, so they are saving stuff for E3.
Xbox exclusive features.
They are showing a trailer for the new sports games. Somehow I doubt that this is ingame footage. But if it is, it sure is impressive. But bullshit until I see it being played live.



Forza Motorsport 5

Once again, looks impressive. But I call pre-rendered on this one until I see actual gameplay.
Will be available at Xbox One launch.


Remedy

"Quantum Break"
Live action video. Will there be any actual gameplay shown today?
Some pre-rendered stuff was also involved.


"More titles in development right now than at any other point in Xbox history."
15 exclusive titles in development, 8 brand new ones.


Xbox Entertainment Studios steps up on stage

More television talk.
"TV on xbox will immerse you."
"TV will be personalized."
"TV will be social."
"Rethinking dramas, digital shorts, fuck all"

Halo (!!!)

And on stage it comes... Dum. dum. dum.
"For me Halo has always been more than a game."
"A universe in which we can tell hundreds of stories."

I predict they will make a Halo TV show.

"I am trilled to announce a live action Halo television series". See, did I not predic-

STEVEN SPIELBERG IN CHARGE.

"Halo universe is an amazing opportunity"

"Halo: The television series". No better title?

Premium television series? So some sort of subscription probably required.

No footage or anything. Lame.


NFL now on Xbox.

Xbox One will be launched around the world... Later this year. Surprise.

They are wrapping up and leaving the rest for E3. Lots of exclusives will be there.

Nah, they had more.

Call of Duty

DLC will launch early on Xbox One.
World Premiere of Call of Duty.
"Everyone was expecting us to play safe"
Call of Duty: Ghosts
Next Gen Call of Duty engine.
Infinity Ward is behind it, no surprise there.
60 FPS

"Amazing graphic fidelity"
OK, IW, revelation: Games have looked better than this for a while already.
"America is crippled, forces in disarray"
"You are the underdog, remnants of US special forces"
Dogs are in. "Never like this". Squad member n‘ shit.

You can leap over walls and lean around corners. You can also slide.
Earthquakes and floods, more interactive maps.
Characters customization.

Call of Duty MW3 = State of the art just a while ago? wtf.
Comparison video between Ghosts and MW3.
Ghosts looks better, but pales in comparison to BF and Crysis.

Gameplay. Wow. First one for this evening.

"From the Academy Award winning writer of "Traffic".

Still plenty of explosions involved.

More at E3. What a surprise there. "See you in 19 days"

And that’s a wrap.

Watch on demand will be up shortly.

Opinions?

The swap from CD to Blu-Ray means I won't be picking it up, even if the rumors that it can't do used games are false. Hell, I'm not liable to buy any consoles on the market now, the pickings look to be rubbish.

Given that it now has Blu-ray, a 500Gb hard drive, and the option to store all your stuff in the cloud. It basically makes it a game system/DVR/Cable box all in one. Which I'm guessing was their intent all along.

I want to see what the new pricing bundles will be, but I will definitely be getting this.

as an aside it's 5 Billion transistors not million.

Xbox One does NOT have Always Online.

It is also not backwards compatible with Xbox 360 or Xbox games. Cunts.

but it has the ability to make games that way for programmers and microsoft pretty much admitted they would prefer programmers using it.

as it stands (and there is still time) I have no interest, bearing in mind I have no interest in xbox tv, kinect or multi media capabilities at all

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?
