It was pretty boring apart from tv to dashboard to movie kinect sequence.The whole conference was mostly based on media rather than games which I don't hate ,but don't really care about either. Also...

Wired asked Microsoft if installation would be mandatory. “On the new Xbox, all game discs are installed to the HDD to play,” the company responded in an emailed statement. Sounds mandatory to us.

What follows naturally from this is that each disc would have to be tied to a unique Xbox Live account, else you could take a single disc and pass it between everyone you know and copy the game over and over. Since this is clearly not going to happen, each disc must then only install for a single owner.

Microsoft did say that if a disc was used with a second account, that owner would be given the option to pay a fee and install the game from the disc, which would then mean that the new account would also own the game and could play it without the disc.

But what if a second person simply wanted to put the disc in and play the game without installing – and without paying extra? In other words, what happens to our traditional concept of a “used game”? This is a question for which Microsoft did not yet have an answer, and is surely something that game buyers (as well as renters and lenders) will want to know

The name is stupid, it looks like a chrome-plated NES, they're still pushing Kinect even though nobody likes it or wants it, and they didn't have a single game to show for it.

In other words, it completely lived up to my expectations.

I think your perception is incorrect, Kinect is the future today.

Sony's Move trying to compete with Nintendo's Wii is an all around inferior experience. Improving Kinect's measuring capabilities + voice recognition are just steps forward in the right direction. Like seriously, they're finding new applications for the Kinect every day, and it also gave MS a second wave of selling consoles with crappy specs just for this gimmick.

Holy shit, WOW.  This just keeps getting worse and worse.  This thing is going to be the biggest train wreck since the Virtual Boy.

Don't forget the patent to count how many people are watching shows on the new system.

If it sees too many people in the room it won't stream the content. Also if you're hot they want to see that!!!

It might have been worded wrong and meant that the Kinect won't function if not connected.

But I'm not too hopeful.

EA and Activision even blocked the content reveals that Rev3Games uploaded. And Rev3 are a official video game channel with an actual office. So this is pretty funny.

And if you don't believe me.....

Maybe it had to do with Rev3 mocking the entire conference on their livestream (probably not ,but it would be funny wouldn't it!) In fact watching their livestream made the whole thing more bearable honestly.

I am so incredibly fucking pissed about this console. It's like they're doing everything in their power to make it unappealing as possible.

I guess I'll be moving to PC now.

I feel the same way. No BC, paying fees to borrow from friends(because all games come from gamestop?) and needs kinect to function? This console is dead, DEAD.

Heh..both me and my gf too wondered from where the applause is coming.

Also..we watched the whole thing because we..really hoped we would be surprised and there would be a Killer Instinct 3 reveal...we should have known it better =/
