The technology sounds amazing but I think they're focusing on the wrong area. They should be absolutely optimising the tech for one person so that it really feels futuristic like Minority Report. The extra people is a novelty bonus and only one at a time are going to be playing a game seriously where it needs to be super accurate & responsive.

And as for a 10+ year lifespan that's terrible for the future of gaming even if it means good value for money (if the consoles last) and big profits. Unless the cloud or some other technology is going to give these consoles a massive boost it means very limited development during those last few years of the console's life.

The specs of XB1 & even PS4 will be totally irrelevant by that time. Optimisation can only go so far when you have so little to work with. I can see myself going over more fully to pc gaming if this pans out.

With the way technology has evolved allowing system updates and whatnot along with rising R&D costs, can you really blame Sony and Microsoft for wanting a console that will last 10+ years?

I don't blame them at all. It's definitely in their interests, just not mine.

I think they mean they will support the Xbone for 10 years, not that there won't be a new console for 10 years. 360 will still be getting games for the next 2 or 3 years.

At Eurogamer? I played on Saturday.

Didn't find Battlefield to be as impressive as everything we've seen up to this point. And I didn't understand the stick click thing. Kept getting in the way of when I was trying to sprint. The console looked good from what we could see (was behind a semi-transparent cabinet).

Question Re: The Xbox One - Part 3

I'm not going next gen until early next year but for some reason I'm curious about XBO right now,My plan has been to go with PS4 and so I haven't checked up much on stuff for this since E3

Is there a site/list/ad or something with updated positives for the console?,Perhaps some of you care to share your own positives and reason why your going with this one!?

Never mind, Microsoft actually wants to sell Kinect data
Quote:
Remember that time that a Microsoft marketing executive told everyone that the company has no intention of using any data collected from Kinect for anything related to advertising? You shouldn't have to rack your brain; it happened only a few days ago. Well, go ahead and disregard that, because Microsoft's VP of marketing and strategy got up in front of a room full of people, and stated that the company hopes to do that in the future.

Does anyone know if Microsoft has anything planned for Comic-Con this week?

You gotta think they'll do something, right?

So far no one said anything on NYC besides those that work for Marvel and Dc on their game's development divisions . I think the console publisher's are looking at GDC right now.



Microsoft addresses fears over Xbox One targeted advertising

(7 hours ago)
80

Microsoft has responded to questions raised by a recent Advertising Age report, which suggested that Xbox One users could offer up a "data treasure trove" for marketing and advertising purposes.

Microsoft Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer Yusuf Mehdi addressed the Xbox One's potential for targeted advertising during a speech at the Association of National Advertisers Masters of Marketing Conference last week. Mehdi hinted that the Xbox One's bundled Kinect peripheral could track living room activity in order to serve users better-targeted dashboard advertisements.

Responding to a request for comment from Eurogamer, a Microsoft representative linked to this forum post from Microsoft Director of Product Planning Albert Penello, regarding a previous marketing-focused interview. Penello assures that the company will not use the Kinect's player-tracking features to collect data for its previously outlined Natural User Interface Advertisements.

"[...] Someone was talking about how some of the new Xbox One Kinect features *could* be used in advertising - since we can see expressions, engagement, etc. and how that might be used to target advertising," Penello wrote. "This is the point that seems to draw some controversy."

Penello continued: "First - nobody is working on that. We have a lot more interesting and pressing things to dedicate time towards. [...] I'm not aware of any active work in this space. Second - if something like that ever happened, you can be sure it wouldn't happen without the user having control over it. Period."

Aww shucks! People are trying to sell me stuff on my video games just like they do everywhere else I look! That really gets my nickers all bundled up!


Why the hell am I supposed to care about that? I just ignore ads unless they get in my face. I could care less about a dinky ad in the corner of the dashboard.

I don't have an issue with ads themselves unless they are intrusive, but this is not just talking about simply ads; it's talking about taking personal and private information taken from the Kinect camera and selling it. I don't see how anyone could be cool with something like that. It's insanely intrusive, for one, and frankly rather shady as a business practice for another. This is something I think goes beyond being a fanboy for a company/console.

The Xbox One will not automatically record all your achievements, but what it will do offers up far more potential.

Kinect is a camera that attaches to the console. You use the motions of your hands to move your menu and stuff like that, and it also has voice recognition. No, you don't have to use it, the One will still work without it plugged in, I believe. Also, the One is not backwards compatible with the 360, so you can't play those games on the One.

I'm going to pay it off this weekend. I only want it for gaming purposes. Mostly sports games. Any reason not to buy it? I don't follow presses and new surrounding it. I just know it's a new system and want it for better graphics and what not

If you just want a next-gen console that can play sports games and don't really care about all the bells and whistles from either console, and don't already have an "ecosystem" attachment to one or the other, than you should probably just get the $100 cheaper PS4.

That said, if you have friends on the 360 who will be getting an X1 that you will play games with, obviously go where your friends are.

I mean, I'm not sure exactly what you're asking exactly. The PS4 is $100 cheaper, if you didn't know. If you're only looking for Sports title, that might be something to think about.
