I'm sitting in the 'Rather disappointed' camp on the whole Xbox One reveal and the continuing lack of clarity over the scenarios whereby a game disc can be used on other consoles or by other family members is going to put off a lot of potential buyers who simply want to play games. Most people can't be arsed with all of the pissing around with deinstalling games, changing gamer profiles etc, they just want to turn on the machine and play whatever game they happen to be into at that moment. Gone are the days of being able to lend your copy of a game to your mate while he lends you one of his. Gone are the days where you could rent a game for a few weeks from LoveFilm. From now we're going to be over the barrel, being forced to pay for a 'license' that will allow us to play a previously loved game. 'License' on these terms is a euphemism for 'fine'....the price paid for not buying the game from new.
I don't care about Blu Ray, Kinect, TV streaming, NFL games and Skype calls via the console. I already own the gizmos that allow me to do all of those things, besides the Kinect...which like NFL, really isn't for me. Xbox has gone the way of the mobile phone in that's it's trying way too hard to be a digital Swiss Army knife.
The games at launch are continuations of the franchises from this console generation, with Assassin's Creed 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Forza 5 and more FIFA nonsense. I've been playing those games for the last 7 years. I want my next gen console to give me new experiences, not just some shinier experiences that I've already had.
The lack of backwards compatibility is also a sin. As is the thought of a Halo based TV show produced by Spielberg. Have you seen 'Terra Nova' and 'Falling Skies'? Exactly.
