I am not, but my twitter feed is all talking about it. Sounds like it's going to be another several years of not paying attention to XBox for me.

What are your thoughts, Mr. Elliott?

Just started watching the stream on giantbomb.com

So far, I'm far less impressed than I was with the PS4 presentation. I do not care about Kinnect, I fall asleep whenever it gets mentioned. The cloud computing stuff could be cool if it works like they say it will, but I have my doubts.

This is about everything I know about the thing, backed up by other complaints on twitter: "Xbox One to have pre owned games drm, no backwards compatibility and XBLA games won't transfer over. Well fuck you too, Microsoft"

Does anyone else think it looks like shit? Also, wouldn't you get a flashier animation and computer model of the system? For Christ's sake you're a video game company </nerdrage>

Bluh... Yeah, unimpressed. I don't need Xbox to do social networking. Just play video games for me, bb.

I kinda like that it looks like an old VCR, but I think that's just the nostalgia of that era for me more than anything.

I keep hearing mixed things about how used games come into play (ranging from you'll have to pay a small fee to play a used game (or pay the retail cost if you buy a new release used) so I'm waiting to read a definitive and official statement on how that works.

I don't care about the Kinect, and it's weird that it isn't ever truly off. I don't like talking to my electronic equipment unless I'm pissed that it isn't working. Also I play video games because I'm a fat lazy slob. They were meant for people like me. I'm not running around my living room to play a video game. I also had the Kinect for 360 (before my 360 died) and I only used it in a party setting, never by myself or with my wife.

I get the not being backwards compatible. Two completely different architectures and when you look at it from that standpoint it makes sense. It's also become the standard seemingly to not offer backwards compatibility so at this point it's an issue I don't even bother addressing when someone brings it up.

It's gonna take a lot of convincing for me to switch to anything next-gen at this point to be honest. as long as I can access Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Youtube, I have no incentive to really give up my PS3 for a new console.

Right! I've always been a big fan of the Tony Hawk series, then they put out the one that had the skateboard peripheral and it's like... I play these games because I can't ACTUALLY skate!

I think I'd get one of these newfangled systems if there was a way that Microsoft could prevent kids from playing games they're too young for (i.e. abiding by the ratings system). The whole reason I got out of multiplayer is because I was tired of being called a "gay faggot" or some other shit like that whenever I killed by one of these punks.
