Well, most of you aren’t living under a rock so you probably already heard about the new console, the Xbox One.
1. My DirecTV already allows me to change channels on my remote. I really don’t need voice commands.
2. Nothing on how you’ll get TV into your Xbox. Looks like you’ll pass through the HDMi from your cable/direcTV converter as there’s no cable card slot. So how does that work? Does it have a built in IR blaster without wires like the Slingbox 500? Will it work with DirecTV or cable only? Will it suck as much as the Wii U’s TV mode that has yet to really be developed?
3. My that’s a good looking dog.
4. So much for taking your Xbox One with you on trips since it requires internet. Can you use your mobile phone as a Wifi hotspot to connect your Xbox?
What bothers me so much as that all of these console developers think they control the press in the same way a Cold War country did in the 60s. I don’t understand why they don’t put out the date, the price, how it works with backwards compatibility or any of that stuff. Putting it out six months later must be a “good marketing strategy” but I think it’s stupid. In my focus group of 12 year olds that live at my house; they thought the dog was awesome but wanted to know how much it was to start saving for it. They wanted to know when it will be out. They wanted to know if they could bring the game over to a friends house to play it. I had no answers.
Why even bother with an event if basic questions can’t be answered. At least with this presser, we saw what the console looked like.
..and people wonder why the industry is crashing…
