My thoughts on the Xbox One
So the new Xbox was announced yesterday, and I watched the video last night. Here are my takes on what was revealed:
- It looks huge. The physical console seems way larger than the current Xbox.
- There doesn’t seem to be that much in the way of gaming innovation. More power, better graphics, but nothing revolutionary. Kinect is just the same, but higher fidelity.
- I am really curious to see how the new entertainment features (which do look cool) will work outside the US. Almost no other countries have similar cable monopolies, so I see live TV being a problem.
I’m sure we will get more details as time goes on, but for now I’m somewhat underwhelmed.
