anyone excited about the upcoming (fall) Xbox 720?

I wasn't really looking closely at another MS system, but I do like some of the ideas here. I think (for me) a lot of this will be less about the features, and more about how said features are implemented. For example:

 

*I'm glad there's a BluRay drive, because that's the primary function of my home entertainment system. Will the BluRay playback be top-notch?

 

*Will it be backwards-compatible? And will it be solid compatibility, or be full of glitches? I still have a RROD-prone 360. If this meant I could move my games to better hardware, I'd be interested. The newer games would be a bonus.

 

*Will it play used games? Yeah, we all heard the rumors, but I want a solid yea-or-nay on this.

 

*Will it require an internet connection for offline play? (I can't think of a way to type that question that doesn't sound retarded)

 

*The "Game DVR" idea is cute, but useless to me personally. If this gave me a way to replace my ACTUAL DVR from my cable company, with its interface that was designed by Ray Charles, that might be something.

 

Do I want a new Xbox? Not really. But if you're telling me this thing could replace my DVR, XBox 360, and BluRay player, and equal or surpass the performance of all three... well, I'd listen. ;-)

Nothing will be backwards compatible:

 

And there’s one area in which Sony and Microsoft are in perfect harmony: Neither of their new machines are backward compatible with their current ones. That means your seven years’ worth of digital game purchases made over the Xbox Live Marketplace won’t function on the new machine. (Microsoft says your licenses for purchased movies, music and the like will transfer over.)

SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS!

 

Its a small form factor PC\Cable box that requires a subscription for all the "cool" features and plays PC games.

 

Plus some exclusives only for Microsoft (and yes....Sports)

 

Are all games tied to an Xbox live account? Oh oh.

 

No buy for me! Yay!

It has a built in TV tuner. How good a tuner is it? Cable is easy, will it work well with off air HDTV?

The graphics are great but we expected that.

I like the integrated skype and other interface changes but I don't think all of them required the ONE.

Exactly what does "nearly silent operation" mean?

I don't care if it's the greatest piece of electronics ever created if it's $1500. So how much will it cost?

Whelp. It was underwhelming a lot for me. (SPORTS)

 

So maybe someday I'll own one but it will only be for whatever exclusives it may offer and whatever ties it has to Windows 8 etc.

I wont be investing at all in it.

 

At least the Wii U is a video game console not a TV that plays games.

WTF does this mean!?! It brings a lot of funny images to my head, including an In Living Color skit which I'll post when I get out of work. :)

XBLA games won't transfer by the way.. I guess you better keep your 360 handy if you want to play your arcade collections. CLOUD 4 LYFE!!!! :lol: On that note at least we should see stuff like Castle Crashers One edition for only $15 :P

Well, judging from what I saw today, Microsoft has given me ZERO reason to even consider moving to the XBOX One (I wonder how much some marketing firm got paid to come up with that bullshit) anytime soon. Barring getting one for free (or darned near it), I won't be an early adopter.

 

That said, if they're marketing this as a replacement for your cable box, I wonder if they also have plans to make it available through your cable provider (for an small, additional monthly fee). That might help them gain an installed user base, although for me, it does nothing (I don't subscribe to any cable provider).
