    Default New Xbox Anyone?

    I'm looking forward to seeing what Microsoft will be releasing here soon. May 21st marks the announcement. Anyone looking forward to it? I hoping they don't screw up the controllers too bad and go all out on the hardware. Also hoping they go with a BD drive on this one.

    I'm quite curious what they have, BD is really a must for them at this point. The size that games are getting to, even with a fast connection will take quite a bit of time to download, and DVD just can't do it. It would also be nice to axe my BD player and have one less thing on the rack.

    Also, hopefully they give a bit more info than we got on PS4, which was nearly nill.

    I've already warned my co-workers that I'm taking lunch at my desk so I can watch the livestream on Xbox.com. They're really going to have to impress us after what Sony showed of the PS4 (though I'm hoping that unlike Sony, Microsoft actually shows us THE CONSOLE).

    I wasn't all that impressed with the PS4 release show. I was hoping to be floored by totally amazing graphics and games,super fast loading, bigger upgraded controllers, 9.1 audio, instead it sounded like Sony was more interested in streaming games etc... so you can take your game anywhere and everywhere. That's all we need is for kids to be trying to play their games while they're driving down the road or walking down the street etc. I'm hoping XBOX wows us with bad ass graphics and gameplay, audio that puts to shame the PS4, and a Blu Ray drive that kicks ass.

    Blue ray would be surprising, but highly unlikely because sony owns the rights to that I believe

    They could do what Nintendo did with the Wii U games: proprietary disc format: they hold as much as a Blu-Ray. I just hope they don't rush the production so we don't get the RROD. I'm sure they don't want to make that mistake again.

    Yup same here, still using a gen 1 console. This one did RROD on me once, sent it to Xbox Japan for repair and it has performed well since. Guess we shall see what they do with the new console. I'll be up watching this one also.

    Honestly, if they are going the "center of home entertainment" route they have been touting, bluray is a must. I'd say the chances of having it are better then of them not. We should find out today though!!! :)

    Did you all see the speculation that it has HDMI IN to control your cable box and possibly work as a DVR. Interesting.

    I have heard about that, but I kind of don't know if I'd like it (especially since I don't have a cable box). It'll be interesting to see the implementation and how they pull it off, for people that use OTA programming, we're kind of hosed though. Seems to me it would have been better to have a built in tuner....

    I'll be interested to see what they announce, and I think it's supposed to be this morning. I should know better living here in the home of Microsoft...

    I'm sure the XBOX unit will have a Blu Ray drive in it. Sony won that war and the rest is history. We all have Blu Rays now,lol.

    I'm disappointed, but not shocked, that no pricing was presented. From the speculation that I have read, it could be up in the $400-500 range.

    Xbox One. Blu-Ray 8GB ram 500GB HD. It will have an HDMI in and Out. What I'm excited about is the HDMI in. You connect your cable box to it and you don't have to switch source on the receiver. Just say Xbox TV and live TV comes up.

    I'm curious for them to release more info on this. I guess those of us with OTA I hosed, but with HDMI in how does it link back to the cable box to control it? What about compatibility of different companies cable boxes? There are a lot of questions yet to be answered on this front.

    Regardless, I'll probably be getting one since Forza 5 is a launch title. I'll played every game in the series and I probably won't stop now.

    I guess this kind of leaves me feeling a little better for the moment:

    A: Our goal is to enable live TV through Xbox One in every way that it is delivered throughout the world, whether thatís television service providers, over the air or over the Internet, or HDMI-in via a set top box (as is the case with many providers in the US). The delivery of TV is complex and we are working through the many technologies and policies around the world to make live TV available where Xbox One is available.
    They do mention OTA, so maybe they are going to have a built in tuner as well. Here's hoping, would be nice to use this feature a bit, even with my limited channels.

    Just woke up and did some digging around on the new toy. Specs and features look freaking good. I like what they did with the controller, minimal changes but it looks awesome. Here's to hoping for a decent launch price, and not some crazy insane bundle price like they did with the 360.

    Bluray has been added, so it looks like MS heard some of what the customer wanted. I really like the interface which seems pretty cool. I will be purchasing for sure.

    Any other thoughts?

    Since every one comes with a Kinect now, i bet the price is going to be up there.

    This is exactly what I was thinking, we are now forced to buy a kinect. The good thing about that is we may be able to interact with a fps, imagine taking your hand of the controller to throw a secondary grenade that is not selected in the main inventory
