Jesus, some of us have got a bit angry about this !
Not buying it because it won't play 360 games? really, ok, fair enough I guess but that's not an issue for me, I've got 20 odd games i hardly have time to play at the moment so not really bothered about not playing them on the next gen console. And why would you want to replay Mass Effect on a new console just to get the same achievements? you've already got them.
Anyway how do you know that achievements will be the same on the one? limited to 1,000? doesn't appear so....
So far from what we know it looks like a really cool piece of kit. It plays games ( a bit of a must), has the media content that we've already got on the 360 and apparently will enable some kind of interactions with friends online with their 360's - I'm guessing, online status, chat, party chat etc.
Bigger questions to be answered at E3 or after for me are:
Price - rumoured to be $499-$599 in the US, and as most of the rumours to date have been true more or less that would probably translate in the UK as £499-£599. That for me put's my purchase on hold to sometime in 2014 although the rumoured lower cost subscription model might be of interest.
Kinect, now that's my real concern at the moment. For all of the slick voice commands and gesture commands on the presentation tonight I'm still worried and not convinced by Kinect for a typical UK living space, let alone those in Japan ! I purchased Kinect for the 360 and promptly sold it within 6 months because it just couldn't work in our living space. Yes I got suckered in to the marketing on the Kinect for 360 and I won't be making the mistake with the One and it's reliance on Kinect until I've seen it in action in small spaces or unless it has some kind of limited return policy that if it doesn't work within your living room set up you can get your money back. Yes I know that won't happen !
Overall very impressed with what we've seen so far, interactive TV, - cancel my SKY subscription !, Skype, cancel my phone package......
The interactive TV functions including stuff shown tonight like the fantasy NBA team look great but I'm sceptical as to how and who would implement for the UK and Europe - so is this going to be USA centric (again) with limited functions and appeal to the wider world? time will tell....
Will you be able to pay to access USA content outside of the US? I bloody hope so.... no more crap netflix UK or lovefilm, now that would be nice.
