The console look like a box. Its living up to its name! It also looks like a DVR. Sad. The controller does not look like it has over 40...
Totally agreed. If it weren't for my mates playing xbox I would of ditched it ages ago. Passing a yearly subscription for gold isa joke. Hope Sony keep their free online.

I don't share anywhere the same enthusiasm as you. For me, the xbox one seems confused about what it is, who it is for and why is doing it. And...
I'm in the same boat as you by the sounds of it. Work full time and have a family so my gaming is limited. I have apc I built with 3770k on water and a gtx 680. It's a gaming rig but I hardly play it compared to xbox because all my mates are on consoles. I buy single player games on pc. But play online with my mates on cod. I just read another article saying there is no dvr or pvr function. I was under the impression it recorded tv? Also the live tv is for USA only but will expand to other regions as the service matures. I would need to buy an additional device to plug my tv aerial into then feed that into the xbox for free to air tv as I don't subscribe to tv services. Hardest thing will be convincing my mates to buy a Sony lol

Plus the PS4 is more powerful! Just read this article. Apparently because there is 3 different operating systems on xbox one all running at once...
How funny would that be. You are playing a game and some of the graphics are processed in the cloud and some of the physics that aren't affected by latency because of being in the cloud would be a tad bit laggy, then you get a drop out on your net or modem. Half the game disappears lol.

Plus the PS4 is more powerful! Just read this article. Apparently because there is 3 different operating systems on xbox one all running at once all the time so that stupid snap function works allowing you to go from tv to game to Skype. It chess up all the ram so games will have less to work on. That seals the deal for me. PS4 getting preorder tomorrow so u don't miss out. http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-spec-analysis-xbox-one

And to have an international reveal online with international press in attendance and they are touting NBA and NFL. That's half your market Microsoft. The rest of the world don't care. Microsoft have lost the plot.

I don't share anywhere the same enthusiasm as you. For me, the xbox one seems confused about what it is, who it is for and why is doing it. And Microsoft seems just as confused. That was the biggest disappointment. I'm pretty sure it will play next Gen games and well. I'm pretty sure it will pull off some great media content with tv. And I like the OS. But Microsoft in their tradition care very little about us gamers and it's showing through their first presentation. Who would have been standing by for the past few years on every tit bit of information about the next gen? Gamers. We don't care about tv stuff. Not saying it isn't a good addition to a console but that's exactly what it is. An addition. They came out trying to sell a next gen cable box to gamers. Stupid is a compliment. They are only focused on what they want, being the center on the living room. Not about what we want. Then look at Sony. Every bit of that system has been developed for gamers. At least that's what they want you to think. But they have done an awesome job in catering for developers and gamers and I can bet they will be sneaking almost as many entertainment features as xbox do. But they have been smart in knowing their audience and they will bank on the 'additional features' selling the machine once gamers have been won over. Much like DVD in ps2 and bluray in the 3. Microsoft can kiss my A $$. They aren't in tune with me, developers or other gamers.
