Xbox One: Initial Thoughts

Reported By: Ms. Throwback

Microsoft announces the Xbox One today in a press conference showing us features like no other system to date. While some people aren’t impressed with the name I for one find it to be a good fit for the competition. With names like Wii U and PS4 the name has to be short and sweet. Xbox One is short and it says exactly what it wants you to do. Use it as an all in one console for all your entertainment needs. Lets break down the good and bad in the bullet points:

The Good:

  • Catchy easy to interpret name.
  • Kinect, Voice Recognition, and Google Glass features.
  • Amazingly useful and simple interface. Literal flick of the wrist or spoken words work the entire thing.
  • Updated sports stats in game from live sporting events. True to life in game weather and wear and tear.
  • BluRay
  • Amazing Hyper-visuals. Did we doubt it?
  • Microsoft is focusing on exclusives with 15 titles.

Questionable:

  • Are Kinect and Google Glass in the box? If so we are looking at one heck of a price point.
  • Hardware looks like a Wii U except humongous! We wish they had more inspiration.
  • I might use xbox to turn my tv on for another system, if i pick up my Wiimote im tempted to play it. This is a lost opportunity for Xbox.
  • Hopefully xbox is smarter than Siri.

Xbox definitely took some notes from Nintendo and added some spice of their own. we still have to see how the interface and recognition work together but if they work like they were shown this is a worldwide game changer…literally. While there is no doubt about the graphical power of this generation of Xbox, gamers expect more content. Now that our eye candy can’t get much better the challenge is on. Will Xbox match our expectations? We have to wait for E3 to find out, but if the first round of EA sports titles and Forza show us anything it’s that the potential is endless. Now about that price point?

E3 2012: Nintendo Press Conference Roundup

Real Talk By: Ms. Throwback

As the opening scenes of the Nintendo conference began I started to get excited. During a pre-recorded scene, Our Pikmin friends that we have grown to love, join Mr. Miyamoto in his living room, finding a space to hide in his seemingly giant shoes. Upbeat music is played as the legend joins the conference onstage, and the Pikmin run along behind him. Continue reading “E3 2012: Nintendo Press Conference Roundup”
