The hardware is stunningly impressive, great games will surely follow.

That Wired.com article brings up an interesting point I noticed during the reveal - mention of their new cloud based Xbox Live service having '300,000 servers in data centres worldwide', the implication being dedicated servers

From the Wired article:
"Perhaps most intriguing, however, is that Xbox One gives game developers the ability to access Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing platform. That leads to a few obvious and immediate applications: All your downloaded and installed games and achievements are synced to the cloud and can be accessed and played without interruption on any Xbox One you sign in to; stable, dedicated servers for every multiplayer game rather than the notoriously fragile practice of hosting matches on one participant’s console; even multiplayer matches that can grow to 64, even 128 participants, rather than the usual limit of 16 or 32."

If they can use this cloud based Xbox Live service to bring dedicated servers to Forza 5, that will be the greatest improvement they could make.

Dunno if this has been noted already, but it answers the big pre-owned question.

http://www.computerandvideogames.com/407912/microsoft-confirms-pre-owned-fee-for-xbox-one/

Basically, you buy game, install to HDD, game is tied to your account, and you play. You trade in, game is sold on, next user pays a fee online to activate it. Game is automatically removed from user 1's account.

Reasonable, I guess. It also means that with a fee required to activate a preowned game, trade-in and resale values should drop... should...

And there is no always-on requirement, although given the system's features outwith gaming, it might as well be always on.

In other news, an EA Senior Engineer has outed the Wii U as being 'crap'. This follows up with the news that EA currently has no games in development for Nintendo's console.

the Wii U is technically what the Wii should've been, but (insert Wii's life span here) years late. and the gawdy controller with the screen built in, is weird, almost like using your 3DS XL's upper screen. and a $250 USD start price for the 8GB system?!?! no thanks you.

i call the Wii U the Virtual Boy of the 2010's.

It has a built-in Game DVR too, for capturing video, editing, uploading etc. I reckon it will be possible to do live streaming too. The way it's built with 8 CPU cores and multiple operating systems, while one part of the system is doing one thing (i.e. running the game), the other bit can do things like streaming, video, Skype etc. You've basically got a high-powered gaming console and a cut down Windows 8 OS running simultaneously.

Still the stupidest name I have heard for the console.

Looking forward to seeing more from each of them at E3. Will be getting both anyway so I have no affinity to either, I just like playing the games.

Agreed Richy, the name is dumb - Xbox 1 means the original 2002 model to me lol. Xbox Infinity would have been a much better choice! Still, name aside, I think it's an excellent piece of hardware and should be a great gaming platform.

there should be at least one on za front, for easier access, but i guess one on the side is better than none. i guess i wont be letting it stand on that end.

Anyone else think the kit looks a bit? "1980's" ? All straight lines, no unique design, and the controller looks Naff.

Was expecting to be blown away, the inside stuff looks awesome! but the controller and the console just don't look very appealing.

well, the console looks more 'streamlined' if that helps. it'll kinda helps blend into any "Home Entertainment" setup, IMO. Simple is better, me thinks. hell, my 60GB "Launch" PS3 is a cow compared to my 360Slim, though that PS3 is still kickin' ass, after all these years (though i only use it for watching my Anime DVDs/BluRay's) Still waiting to hear about Final Fantasy X-HD's release date
