    I'll chill out as soon as everyone drops the drive for negativity about X or Y product. Lead by example.

    I don't think it's all that bad. It's only a one time thing. Just connect it once and then you are done.

    Ya know I really like the box, for me the whole internet thing is neither here nor there, but I certainly don't approve of it.

    If your product drives away consumers from first impressions, you have no one but yourself to blame.

    That is very interesting, since no media outlet has gotten a chance to go hands on with everything to report a first impression.

    I meant the first impression the consumer gets from the product. It doesn't have to be hands on for a consumer to formulate an opinion. They have the right to decide from whatever amount of evidence they have

    The consumer will be very impressed with Xbox One.
    The core gamer on the other hand will have to wait until E3 to make his/her mind up.
    Of course, there are those core gamers that were never going to buy an MS product but will bemoan it anyway.

    And I have the right to point out their faulty reasoning.

    Going by that logic, I should write off the ps4 because I wasn't impressed by the February PlayStation event. But I haven't done that? Why? Because I have an incomplete picture, and it would be very foolish to make decisions without all of the relevant (and correct) information.

    Based on what? The casual consumer probably didn't even know about One until they read about it in their daily news feed. MS does have that weight to where anything that they put out does generate interest within the common consumer world. So they do have that working for them. But I don't see where even the common consumer can be very impressed by the very vague description we were given today.

    yes you have the right to write off ps4 and I won't stop you from doing it. But like you said, we don't know the complete picture, so the consumer mindset will just be a rough mental decision, he/she will still have to decide when the release day comes and on that day they can reevaluate their opinions (or whenever after release), opinions are not final and therefore I don't see what the big deal was when pod said he won't buy X1

    The xbox one had 2 million+ searches on google in the US and 1 million+ on google in the UK.

    Seems significant to me. And based of anecdotal comments from people on other forums, the nongamers that watched the even with them/ or were shown info about it, liked what they saw for the most part.

    Because the internet is awash with those who do noting more that disseminate misinformation/disinformation knowing that it will aggravate people. And even the people who don't do this are only too willing to buy into it. So people are making comments/decisions based of incorrect/faulty data/information instead of taking the time to assemble the facts and come to a logical conclusion.

    I'm not debating that there are some that will be excited about new tech. You know as much as I do, in the electronic world the next big thing is what regular consumers are on the look out. MS releasing a new console is a big deal. Regardless of what that console is intended for it is big news for everyone. Me personally, even putting myself in the eyes of a common consumer I don't see where you could be excited nor disappointed about this. Just more waiting with baited breath.

    That's honestly why I don't see this reveal as being all that necessary. It was simply to reveal it's core focus on the entertainment aspects with the gaming being set aside for E3. If the details were so vague why bother. In only 19 days the hype would have been started and honestly I think it would be in a better view by the internet right now. There are so many questions that people have that are not really answered right. There is just so much confusion when so many were looking for clarity. If E3 is for the games then where will they get time to focus on the details that they simply skimmed through like the rumors of an added peripheral to use the Live TV. Honestly to me this reveal simply did more harm than good.

    Ok. Go back to the first few pages of this thread and find the video I posted about the Xbox 360 reveal on MTV. Then tell me that this event was worse/more pointless than that reveal.

    You can now talk to your TV, do multiple things with your TV, oh and it plays game trailers.

    It's being billed as more of an TV entertainment system for now gotta wait until E3 for the rest

    They didn't reveal anything. Hell 1/3rd of the event was The killers concert. The rest was celebrities talking about the 360. 21 minutes long. Completely and utterly pointless. Yet they did it.

    I Guess in retrospect this isn't as pointless but still too vague to really do much in terms of clarity that had been begged for. Just more questions. Kind of shows that MS slaps their name on it and people get excited.

    they said the reveal was to introduce the new box and that E3 was for the games, what part of that message was hard to follow?

    they showed a couple of games and while I personally do not care for the COD games, both that and Forza were highly impressive.

    Xbox One games are going to look good and it's looking to be a good media system as well.
