Microsoft’s Xbox always had a way of blowing out the competition in the past two generations, either with big name exclusives like Halo or Gears of War and the best online service known to the video game world. The specs were solid and past consoles managed to appeal to casual and hardcore gamers.
That being said, I was really underwhelmed by Xbox One’s presentation.
Like most people, I was displeased that the company focused so heavily on connecting to one’s television and put a much smaller emphasis on gaming. When I buy a video game system; I want exclusives by the truckload and I want my video game system to be just a video game system.
I may change my mind in the future, but right now: the Xbox One looks more like a large remote control with video games being an afterthought.
I know Microsoft wants to pioneer technology and make the Xbox One part of every entertainment center in the world, but it’s alienating it’s core audience.
Hopefully, the Xbox One will go more in depth at E3, and make me want to stay an Xbox customer.
- It looks like they made Kinect better and more responsive.
- I love the controller (it’s the least goofy for this generation so far)
- Quantum Break looks like it’s going to be the “must have” game for me.
- I don’t want Kinect! Stop trying to make Kinect happen, Microsoft.
- Show us more games besides just Call of Duty, it looks fun, but we need more.
- Internet Explorer? Really?
- Where’s Milo?
