Now that the virtual console is cranking out the older games, the pads ability to allow you to play while others watch tv is very cool. the Emphasis is on the gaming experience.
I really don't get the novelty of the Xbox one. A smart tv does damn near everything that Microsoft is claiming only they had the vision to provide. By the time it launches, smart TVs would have been out for two years. I own a vizio 3d smart tv. So I already have the multimedia experience. The lockout of borrowed or used or secondhand games and their stance on independent gaming is just greed. I skipped the Xbox360 because I wasn't real impressed with the first Xbox. The red ring failure is all the evidence you need that Microsoft really couldn't give a fig about the consumer nor can they bothered with shoving whatever they want down our throats. I'll stick with Wii u. You guys can spend your money on the TiVo clone.
