Microsoft Most powerful console available. The Xbox is doing well on its homecourt, but on the road sales aren't dominating.

What really makes me sick are people will probably buy this thing launch day w/ CoD: Ghosts selling in the millions breaking records just because it's "next-gen" and Xbox One still gets their DLC first.

I'm not going to lie, I'll eventually get XONE and PS4 because they will both have great exclusives. I am interested to see all these new IP's at E3, they can still semi-redeem themselves if they hit a grand slam with their launch line-up at E3 in a few weeks.

I dunno, from what I've seen over the years it's very hard for franchises to maintain their momentum during console transitions. With some few exceptions of course like Mario and GTA.

The big question will be how quickly will people adopt?

What sales #'s is Activision expecting on this game?

I don't see it selling more copies then COD BO2.

Mario has a cult following like Zelda.

GTA is pretty much the same game, but improved a ton, something that is easy to do and make it feel like a whole new experience.

COD looks like it's trying to do that, but we'll see. I'm not the biggest fan of the series, but a lot of my issues were because of current gen limitations, hopefully that changes.

Currently BF4 is what really has me interested.

The architecture of the Xbox One and PS4 are basically the same. So the more powerful system this time around will be more powerful.

I don't know any of the people in the gif but it doesn't seem too hard to figure out that it has something to do with Sony/Playstation coming back from the dead ( not that they ever were even close to dead) because MSOnes shitty start and possibly Nintendo as well.


I could be wrong though.

The more I think about it this presentation was not supposed to focus on the Xbox Ones gaming capabilities at all. That will all come at E3. So in that regard I'm glad they introduced all the non-gaming features, which are pretty cool in general.
