    BBC praises next gen Xbox media capabilities

    Nashak proclaimed his excitement for next gen consoles, singling Xbox out for particular praise. "It's been a while. I think we're going to see Microsoft, for example, really get it right - not that they haven't in the past. You're going to see this next Xbox be a true home entertainment system. I think they're going to have a system when you get into Xbox Live that's going to be very seamless; you'll see more frictionless billing."


    Microsoft has partnered with the Beeb before, introducing elements of the Top Gear license to Forza Motorsport 4.

    They'll show their Illumiroom for 3/4 of the conferene, without saying that if your room is not big enough or too much furniture, it'll be crap, then a new Halo, Forza and possibly not Gears of War as Epic should be free from them now.
    "really get it right - not that they haven't in the past" ??? joking? releasing a defective console to steal customers, buying off licenses with illegal payoffs and release the game too soon, making them a mess (Last remnant and Infinite undiscovery), having lots of short films present new tech but no live demo (hello, Milo ; and what of the Star Wars game with obvious lateness of the arm of the guy on stage compared to what's shown on screen.
    To sum up, what Microsoft presentes in their E3 conference each year is smoke and mirrors and remakes of their overpaid licenses.

    Discuss the topic, not the poster, cheers!

    I saw Pachter say that nextbox would be well received by things like BBC, Wall St Journal and other publications because of its attention to a broader set of features (media and app wise). An all round media center seems to be of more relevance than a laser focused game platform in his estimation.

    You are not missing out on Pizza Hut pizza. Now if it is Garlic Jims, then I would be jealous.

    no problem with any of these...now will people interested in these features have to pay a one time fee (xb live gold)? or do they have to pay for gold and then subscribe to the extra services individually

    Yup, that is the case with these next gen machines. We all need to accept that. It's an evolution of this current gen machines.

    I too will be focusing on the Xbox 3 and PS4 for gaming first and foremost. But Sony and MS are ramping up even more media functions and casual features in each one. Doesn't mean we have to use those features but they will be there and will be a big focus for them.

    My note 2 and soon the note 3 will be a better media machine than anything Sony or ms will release. Didn't use the bd in the ps3 except for planet earth nor did I play music from my ps3. It wad a gaming console and that's what the ps4 will be once again. But this new Xbox, is looking like a mighty nice set top box. I'll wait till the 21th to see how ms approaches this. Media machine = buy, games machine = no buy (already have a ps4 for that)

    This , I hate this all-in-one $#@!. But my phone does it so I won't see this a nice addition to my home. If the nextBox is not focused as Ps4.

    Ill be using them for whatever they offer me without extra paywalls or subs. Gaming of course is always the main reason for me to purchase them... But if a feature is there free if charge, why not?!?!


    Next Gen top picks:
    PS4: Infamous SS, DriveClub
    One: Project spark, Forza 5
    Multi: Watchdogs, The crew, FFXV, KHIII

    No doubt that the Xbox 3 will excel at games like the 360 did. But this whole Pizza Hut app is $#@!ing stupid as all $#@!.

    You are all for taking LONGER to order a pizza and LEAVING a game to do it?

    MS needs to get their head out of their ass and prevent SPAM apps like this. It's the stupidest thing I have seen on a console to date.

    Frictionless billing? yay.. ?

    Thing is with media, both next gen consoles are going to be excellent media hubs. Because they have to be and they are expected to be, they have no choice. And that's a good thing, as long as the gaming focus is not diluted. But it does sound like MS's has been
