    Sony stock soars as yawnworthy Xbox reveal wraps up

    Did you tune in for Microsoft's reveal of Xbox One, the next-generation Xbox system set to compete with PlayStation 4? The show just wrapped up. Here's what you'll get on Xbox One:

    TV shows
    Sports
    Kinect
    Sports
    Fantasy Football
    Exclusive FIFA DLC
    Forza Motorsport 5
    NFL, Sports
    Halo TV series
    Call of Duty: Ghosts
    Am I exaggerating? Not really. And investors seem to agree: a quick Google search reveals that Sony Corporation stock is soaring in the wake of Microsoft's reveal event. In the last hour or so, Sony's stock price has risen 9.1 percent to $22.87. So far, that's 9.16 percent up on the day. Things are constantly updating, though--Google "Sony Corporation stock" to say up-to-date on the situation.

    I wouldn't complain - I'm a big sports head.

    But we wouldn't get that $#@! down here anyway so would be a waste ultimately. Would be good though but not necessary.

    Well although a great machine since it's pretty much the same as the PS4, it didn't wow, it's probably because the PS4 stole all the hype revealing theirs first, it probably would have been otherwise if they had done it first.

    I was pretty shocked when they started talking about Halo, all it turned out to be was some exclusive Halo tv show.

    But they did claim to have 15 exclusives coming, 8 of which were new IPs. So guess we'll have to see what they get.

    How many of those are Kinect only casual games? Does this include indie games on XBL? Too many questions for me to consider this good news at all.

    Agreed. I will however give them the benefit of the doubt until more details are revealed.

    Points I didnt see mentioned, include things like DRM and always online rumors. One would think they might want to squash negative/inaccurate rumors asap.

    They did say no such thing as 'always on', however they did not say anything about DRM.

    I didn't even know the new Xbox reveal happened. However, after what I read, I guess I didn't miss much. Maybe at E3, they will have a better presentation.

    About always on:
    UPDATE: Another Microsoft representative, UK marketing director Harvey Eagle, has confirmed that the Xbox One doesn't require a constant internet connection. "The answer to that question is no. You do not require an always-on connection to be able to use Xbox One," he said. "It is clearly designed to be connected to the Internet, and hopefully from what you've just seen you realize some of the benefits that brings. But if your Internet connection drops, you will still be able to play games, still be able to watch Blu-Ray movies, and still be able to watch live TV."

    Source http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/05/...net-connection

    About DRM:
    Reports are claiming that Xbox One will require all games to be installed on the console's HDD before they can be played.

    According to Wired, if owners want to use the disc with a second account they'll be asked to pay a fee and install the game from the disc, suggesting that once games are installed you won't need to insert the disc to play.

    It's unclear what this means for the secondhand market, though Microsoft announced on an FAQ page (since removed) that the Xbox One is designed "to enable customers to trade in and resell games. We'll have more details to share later." It didn't reference the fees confirmed by Microsoft to Wired.

    We're not entirely sure what this means but have reached out to Microsoft for clarification and will update the story as soon as we hear back.

    Does that mean Roger Goodell will fine us $10,000 for making helmet-to-helmet hits while playing Madden on Xbox1?

    Sticking to PS4 thanks.
