Awful name. Promising console.

Hopefully the features shown for the US market will have some sort of UK alternative. Will it be able to get freeview? or will it be compatible with like your sky or virgin services.

There is a hdmi out as well as a hdmi in, so that must be useful for something.

I like the multitasking and instant witching between them. Been times when I've wanted to check certain things and it would back me out to the dashboard. marketplace for example

I also like the snap feature. I often play my xbox whilst either watching the football on my computer or doing something else on the computer. Think I'll prob use that feature quite a bit tbh.

Kinect 2.0 looks really impressive, can measure the weight applied on the body, your heart rate. The only thing is I highly doubt I'll use the kinect to its capabilities. After a long hard day at work the last thing I want to do is jump around like a monkey around my living room. Although diving onto the couch to make saves on kinect sports used to be quite hilarious and fun.

Overall I have an xbox to play games on it. I have a tv to watch tv on it. I have a computer to compute things . I will still use the new xbox to mainly play games on it. ITs a games console, thats what it should do. I'm not convinved by this all in one idea they are trying to achieve. But its new and fresh I guess.

I will still get a xbox one but the main selling point for me is the next gen games looks amazing.

It's the most unnecessary product I've seen in a long time.
It's meant to be a gaming console, but it's more like a poor version of an average PC. The features are standard as far as technology these days goes. Everybody seems to be raving on about the voice activation system, yet they don't seem to realise PC's have had voice activation systems in them since forever, and when are they ever used?

Not to mention the fact that it's big and bulky.
On the other hand, I, like lfc_lad, will be looking forward to playing some of the next gen games.

TV's have had turn on voice commands for ages. Its not hard to turn it on by a button.

Obesity levels will continue to rise. No longer will you waste calories turning on xboxs, you can navigate through watching tv, searching the internet and many other things without even using calories to pick up the controller!

I think PS4 will seem much more superior in terms of being a gaming console. Microsoft are trying to do an apple. Trying to be different. It might work, it might not.

I'll still be getting a xbox though, as my friends play on xbox, I've enjoyed obtaining my achievements on xbox. I enjoy the exclusivity of early DLC for likes of COD and now EA seem to be jumping on the xbox bandwagon. COD and FIFA seem to be two of the top games in terms of longevity. I've had black ops 2 since day 1 and fifa 13 since day 1. I'm still playing them now. I've got other games at home that I've had since day one but haven't touched them again since and if I do. its not for a long period of time. So they are major selling points for me.

Anyway, looking forward to E3. should get a lot of new info then.

Just like xbox 360 and ps3 I think its going to come down to preference and what you prefer to play and what your friends play.

I'm going buy the Xbox 1 just because I can really.

I'm more of a PlayStation man but I don't know. Like Jack mentioned in terms of Hardware it's nothing special compared to what is out there and it won't have a higher spec than the PS4.

To be honest I'm not a gaming fan on Consoles I don't think they can compete with the PC so the only game I will probably buy is Fifa.

Looking forward to seeing what the competition bring out though.

Its all about personal preference to which is so called better. If I've got mates who play on ps4 and I prefer to play games with friends than on my lonesome, then I'm more inclined to buy a ps4 than a xbox regardless of the features they have. I'm not really that fussed about stopping a game and then playing the game again on my sony phone. Nor am I that fussed about watching live tv on my console.

I have a console to play games on with friends online. Thats all I will be using the next xbox for or ps4, but no doubt i'll go with xbox.

Could be worse anyway. Sony and microsoft could go bust, stop production, and we'd be left with the Wii U to play with.....

I have always stood by Sony and their consoles, right from the PS1. Even if my friends moved from the PS2 to the xbox 360, i still thought the PS3 was the better console. Now I think Sony has won this battle and will go on to be the stronger selling console of the two. Some of the features on the xbox one are rediculous and the price seems over the top from my point of view as i don't care at all about having the connect with the xbox. The only thing I see that will keep people buying the xbox one is because of some of the exclusive game titles such as Halo, Forza etc. The restriction used games is pathetic, but video from sony which is obviously aimed at microsoft:

PS4 makes Xbox look like a piece of (insert swear word).

What I don't get is why both consoles cost stupidly more money in the UK than anywhere else in the world... Makes absolutely no sense. If the PS4 is $400, then we should get it for £250, or whatever the conversion is.

The firms - going head-to-head in the £50billion-a-year computer games industry - blame higher taxes in Europe, as well as transport and other costs.

Another thought...

So with the American price point being lower in Pounds, this has been calculated using the current exchange rates. If you've ever been to America, the price you see on the product isn't the price you pay at the till as tax needs to be added on. Where as the UK price point has tax added on already i.e. The price you see is the price you pay.

Although even after looking at this is still appears that we are being overcharged
