    *2018* Behold! The Xbox chef! It's a grill, stove, fridge, and makes kool-aid!

    SO.... i guess some things were better but but it could have been MORE amusing. ^_^

    I wonder who Microsoft's demographic is... Because it definitely is not gamers.
  • Camberf - May 22, 2013 8:30 p.m.

    Wow, I guess it COULD have been worse.

    This doesn't even feel like a console release at all and on a side note what is with the puny 500gb hard drive. If you have to install all your games completely its going to run out of room fast.

    It could be rose-tinted glasses, but it all looked much more 'fun' back in 2005. In 2013 we got a dry, corporate presentation for both reveals. I suppose you could put it down to MTV though. I can't believe that reveal was 8 years ago, I'm getting old... Also, there is something wrong with your slideshows, and there has been for a while. Sometimes when I click next or the arrow key, the picture disappears but the text and page number stay the same. Then when I click next again it goes to the next slide correctly. I am using Chrome.

    I have that same problem. I'm also using Chrome.

    Yeah it's so weird to imagine that 8 years hardly anybody had access to HD video content of any kind whether it was through the internet or through TV. HDTVs were restrictively expensive, Sky HD in the UK had literally just launched and it was stupidly expensive (not to mention it only had about 10 actual HD channels) and then internet connections were nowhere near fast enough to stream HD video. Time flies!

    It sure does! Makes me excited for what else we will see in another 8 years, but also makes me want a simpler time.

    seems like just yesterday

    I just hope Microsoft doesn't make the worst press conference of E3, again. Reveal a game console without showing games? That doesn't make sense. People bought 360s to play games not to watch Netflix. People uses the consoles to watch movies because they already own the system, they won't buy it because of TV functions....
  • Cyberninja - May 22, 2013 6:18 p.m.

    Actually yesterday 's reveal did end with something, which was disappointment.
  • mikehoncho - May 22, 2013 6:12 p.m.

    Microsoft can't do reveals very well. All they've managed to do is confuse everybody. I don't believe they'll be able to get their shit together for the release. The launch will be a bigger disaster then the Windows Phone and Tablet combined.

    "Many gamers were impressed." Really? I have no problem believing that many PEOPLE were impressed, or many CONSUMERS were impressed. But I haven't seen too many GAMERS who were impressed.
  • mikehoncho - May 22, 2013 6:19 p.m.

    I don't remember any gamers asking for the features they've added. The whole concept of one device for all entertainment is flawed and no gamer cares about watching tv on their console and nobody is gonna buy a game console based on entertainment features. They have smart TVs and Blu-ray players for that
  • sxh967 - May 22, 2013 7:04 p.m.

    they took the one thing that pretty much no gamer wants anything to do with (kinect) and decided to make it so that we literally have to buy it. I know they will say "oh you don't have to buy it because it's included in the price" but that's the same damn thing they are forcing us to buy kinect plain and simple. All of the features they showed could be great but I don't think they've earned the right to force us to buy into Kinect when we buy into Xbox. I say it's the casuals' fault because with those people buying it.. Microsoft obviously got the idea that everybody must somehow like it and then we ALL get forced to buy it.

    As cheesy as it seems now, my 13 year old self was pissing him self in awe of the 360 reveal way back then. Yesterdays event could have benefited from a little bravado even if just to make me feel something other than disapointment and boredom..
  • supergiraffe - May 22, 2013 3:30 p.m.

    I'm less convinced that yesterdays news was good, but more convinced that Microsoft doesn't know how to do reveals.
