Some in the press are calling the launch a 'disaster'

http://kotaku.com/that-xbox-one-reveal-sure-was-a-disaster-huh-509192266

Interestingly, the whole TV integration MS was touting for most of the reveal will only be available in the US, the console will need to connect once every 24 hours to the Internet to allow you to play and the mandatory game installs will eat up the 500gb non-replaceable hard drive. On the plus side, you can plug in any USB 3.0 hdd and transfer everything - including games - to the external one.

I quite like it. It's a nice bit of product design.

Fits in with the whole Windows 8 aesthetic (squares, right angles, minimalist design). There's no doubting from looking at it that it's a Microsoft product, and Microsoft are bringing the Xbox more into line with the other stuff they're offering.

Similar sort of matte to gloss transition that you'd find on the back of an iPhone 5 too. It'll look pretty smart alongside all you're other black devices in your white IKEA furnished living room Razz

It looks nice and has an adequate system and has a nice feature for streaming recored video's which would be useful for TORA, but the proposed PS4 does everything better for tec and has the streaming feature, for a "family living" environment it works well and Kinect works well in a large space for groups and children but having to have Kinect constanly installed or else the Xbox locks itself is rediculess and impractical, it is a complete cash cow rip off, charging to have games installed on more than one hard drive is unacceptable so I can't borrow or rent games on an Xbox with paying a sum and more of a home entertainment system than a games console which is what I want from err a games console?

MS have made some poor decisions, but they've still got time to change it all. e3 will be the decider; it's make or break there.

I think the Kinect thing is cool. I see no issue with it being.plugged in all the time, whether I use it or not. At least you don't have to buy it separately...

Surprised no one's mentioned the new controller's big new feature... rumble feedback on the triggers. That could be immense on racing games, feeling the tyres lock up when braking, or on shooting games, the recoil of a gun.

http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2013/05/hands-on-and-camera-on-with-xbox-ones-new-controller-and-kinect/

"The most intriguing impulse trigger demo was probably one that combined the more traditional force feedback motors to simulate the rumble of a car engine, then used the impulse triggers to highlight the squealing of brief taps on the brakes. I could see this acting as an important new gameplay cue, outside of sight and sound, that could help add a new level of intuitive response to racing games that's not possible on other systems."

One thing that slightly worries me about the controller is the Dashboard button. To me it looks like its no a button, but one of the fancy touch sensitive panels - if you have a 360 S then your power and eject button are made of the same thing. I've had many an issue when near my 360 when putting a disc in or moving it to clean and such where i would ever so slightly brush the button and it would eject/close/power on/power off when I didn't want it to. I fear accidental brushes of that panel up the top will bring up an unwanted dash, or switch the console on when your controller is sitting on the couch etc.

They have put it way up the top out of the way to prevent this, or so it looks to me but I'd have preferred a button. That's if there is even a dashboard anyway or that's if it even does anything.

I'm not totally sold on the looks of the thing, but it no bigger - or very slightly bigger - than the current one. It's just the shape and position of the gloss black that makes it look a bit big. Same as my first impression of the console, the images of it on it's own makes it look massive - like a VHS or Small PC - but when people were standing beside it it looks no bigger than the 360.

As I said to Duncan I wasn't expecting much, same with the PS4. We're not at that age now where we see a new console and the graphics and such are a huge step forward. Graphically I didn't see anything that can't be achieved on my PC, but that's just the way of tech these days. I'm looking forward to both consoles and the games they will have on them.

That's a good point about the Xbox button, been trying to find a better pic of it - these are the best I can find:




I *think* the whole middle section is the button, can just see the join between the left and right trigger sections of plastic. So I reckon the whole middle panel pushes in, and looks like it may be back lit so it lights up green, or that could just be the light reflecting of it lol

I'm not a fan of the controller. Looks like a Mad Catz..

The D-Pad looks too deep compared to the embossed 360 one. They've also got rid of the age-old Start/Select, which is a shame, but by the looks of things, particularly the icons, they serve similar purposes anyway

The joins on the top will no doubt be the bumper buttons, which will be hinged onto the top or something. I'm assume the black glass if clear in a way, they will still have to have a power on indication - the logo lighting up - and the controller ring to indicated which controller in is which slot...unless they do away with split screen...

Tbh I'm past caring what things look like, it's gonna sit on my floor and that's about it, same with controller, if it's comfortable and 'feels' nice, it's a good controller Wink

I think we are gonna start seeing some real cool stuff come out of the 'dual screen' thing they had going on with the basketball thing too, could be a really cool feature to use whilst gaming, for instance in Forza you bring it up and it shows x positions above and below, even something that simple could benefit a lot of people. It'd probably be more adventurous than that if they could use the feature though.

Well when I say fanboys I mean the derks who say "Ermagerd thers ner gurrms" or "Ermagerd yer nurd a Kernerrkt"

What they don't realise is that

a) There are games; they're at E3. TV and that bs is just a gimmick so you'll use your One for more than just games, if you so wish

b) It comes with a Kinect. You don't have to use it if you're a paraplegic mute. What's the big deal?

The only real issue is the pre-owned malarkey, which was a long time coming since these Online Passes and whatnot. MS and developers lose money every time someone would rather buy the game off a sweaty nerd than in vacuumed polythene. But they haven't stated what the "fee" will be yet. I wouldn't say it would be more than $5-$10 a game - About the price of an Online Pass.
