So... it's XBOX ONE then.
What do you think?

Well, it looks a bit 'generic set top box' to me (which I'm guessing is the aim from MS).

Other than that, nowt I didn't expect as yet.

Will wait patiently to see what comes of the new Kinect stuff before I hand over my cash. I had the original Kinect sensor bar and was frustrated about how far across the room I had to be even with the Nyko Zoom thingy attached.

Other than that I will primarily be using it for games, so that makes all the extra TV stuff irrelevant also.

My fave quotes from the presentation of the Xbox that is named Xbox One that isn't the first Xbox then,
... our mission to transform television
- some of us commented some time ago that Microsoft's main focus with this upcoming console appeared to be on multimedia, i.e. its place as the centre of living room entertainment rather than being primarily focused on being the best gaming system it could be. This quote plus other quotes such as it having 'Xbox Trending" to spy on what TV your friends have been watching filled me with dread as a gamer.
Xbox is about to become the next water cooler
- further indication that Microsoft intend the device to be a media hub first and foremost it seems.
This is rocket science level stuff
- Oh dear, oh dear! :shock: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
- It's a consolised mid-range PC with evolved social networking and DVR functionality (Microsoft PSX :mrgreen: ). #dealwithit

Great, how many Matrix memes about XBox being "the One" are there going to be in the next 24 hours? :lol:

Either way, kind of glad it was not an obvious name. It'll catch on, I'm sure...

The lazy will just refer to it as Xbox the same way they did for Xbox 360.
