    Xbox One Reveal

    I love it.

    -8GB Ram
    -500GB HD

    -Fantasy football integration with a partnership with the NFL.
    -New Halo tv series directed by Spielberg.

    ..the list goes on and on.

    Your thoughts?

    Re: Xbox One Reveal

    Hardware features looks very much alike Xbox 360. Hopefully the software options are better. PS4 has all of the leverage right now to beat the crap out of Wii U and Xbox One.

    Yeah there's no way I'd switch to the PS4 even if it's "better" than the Xbox One.

    Re: Xbox One Reveal

    I am very glad that they changed very little on the controller. The cable/television integration left me with a few questions. Does cable feed directly into the Xbox? Does the feed come from a cable set top box (redundant)? Does it require partnerships with the cable provider (I assume it does)?

    I assume thats what the HDMI in is for, but youd have to have some compatibility to control whatever device is selected. Its been done before (some tivos used to have an IR blaster for it) but i dont know what theyre planning.

    That franchise is the reason I sold my Xbox 360 and bought a PS3

    Very happy with that choice - The Show, free online play, and Blu-Ray more than make up for the inferior controller

    Xbox One: live TV available in US only at launch, requires separate device | VG247

    Looks like it does require a cable or sat box for the TV to work.

    From the I/R out port on it im guessing itll have an IR blaster to control the device. Hopefully MS is broad in their compatibility.

    Re: Xbox One Reveal

    I have a 360, my roommate has a PS3. Even though I was a PS/PS2 guy growing up, I can't stand their controllers anymore. Hate the position of the joysticks, & they don't seem near as firm.

    After living with a PS3 for over 2 years now, we've maybe watched 2 or 3 blu-ray's. I honestly don't think they're worth the extra $$$, & even if my next console has the capability I don't see myself using it much..

    I think the extra features/better layout of XBox Live warrant the $35-$40 I spend on it each year. Not to mention how often PS Network seems to be "down". The clincher for me is probably the overwhelming number of my friends who play in XBox rather than PS.
