    Popular Mechanics puts Xbox One in the top 10 breakthrough products of 2013.

    Whether developed in a garage or in the lab of a multinational corporation, these are the year's most innovative and transformative products, and the winners of Popular Mechanics' 2013 Breakthrough Awards.
    Read more @ http://www.popularmechanics.com/10-breakthrough-products-of-2013

    Some products are evolutionary, others are revolutionary. The Xbox One is both.
    The most notable improvement is the new Kinect sensor, which is integral to the operation of the console. It can see in total darkness, track the fine movements of your hands and muscles, and even sense your heartbeat.

    Gamers may have taken issue with the Xbox One's price ($500) and paywall restrictions (some features require a $50 per year subscription), but technologically it's a huge upgrade from its predecessor. The platform is so advanced that developers have barely begun to grasp all its possibilities.

    Looks more like it was the Kinect sensor that gave Xbox One its spot on the list. Unfortunately, I don't have any desire for the kinect. =/

    The proof will be in the pudding. The fact that MS could fall from grace like it did this gen kinda makes anything possible for me from now on. Xbox One might launch with kinect functioning super tight and the system singing from MS's balanced approach to tech design. MS has made a lot of promises, it just has to deliver on them...and that's th pudding.

    It's going to be interesting seeing if the casuals flock to kinect 2.0. kinect sold 26m...wii sold 100m...I certainly wouldn't have put my eggs in that basket so early.

    Destiny and Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is all I need for the rest of the year.

    exactly, all they need to do now is to make people buy into kinect and it's ad heaven from there on. i know i must sound like a MS hater right now but at this point, i can't think of anything else that they would be benefiting from, so far. no other plan makes sense to me. why they backed off Sony makes total sense now.

    yes, because barely anyone has developed for it.
    EDIT: in relation to kinect as that's what they were talking about.

    Sony had a deal with taco bell where you win a free PS4. it was funny because i read one dude's comment on the official PS blog that he was tired of eating all those tacos.

    Greenberg seems a bit hypocritical, given the fact that xb1 has a promotional deal with Mtn Dew and Doritos.

    I just wanna know how well the pulse and bloodflow flushing sensing work for other bodyparts.
    This could give it the edge in the seedier Japanese market

    Xbox one is getting its fair share of 'hype', while the PlayStation 4 seem to be getting all the 'buzz', and rightfully so. Not to rain anyones parade..

    Titanfall is the only thing MS has got going for it right now..

    Wishlist: Jade Cocoon Reboot, Oni Reboot, the next JRPG, Wasteland 2 [coming soon!]
    SotC 2, Fallout 4, next Obsidian Fallout, Project Eternity, Uncharted 4, Divinity [NEW!]
    ...
    [South Park: Stick of Truth is pure gaming bliss!]

    Maybe as far as shooter go. Titanfall is a must have title. xb1 has some great games besides that already. Dead rising, Forza, PVZ, and Killer Instinct are all good games too.

    so what else does it have if you're already adding all the good games it has so far? your comment makes it seem like there are more "great" games besides the ones you listed.

    Well, those are the game i enjoy. Those are good to me. They have more games i'm sure others like as well. Its not all about Titanfall and i can assure you that people are having a blast playing other games too. Project Spark beta is awesome too. having a blast with it. xb1 is a great console.
