Games At an event earlier today, Microsoft unveiled the next Xbox - the third model, but confusingly named Xbox One. The big focus was TV, integrated Kinect, and all the other stuff we all expected to be forced down our throats. I think it took them 25 minutes to actually come to what should be the core of the story: gaming. Nothing groundbreaking in the gaming department, except for how Microsoft intends to handle the used games market and borrowing games from friends: pay up, buddy!

Failed reveal event in my book

Because all that is apparently remembered from this event, is most of the negative points.

- Pay fee for playing with another account (I don't know how it would be on the same xbox as the "owner" account).
- Connectivity required.
- Pretty much US centric functionalities.

A gaming PC look more and more attractive to me, and for a cheaper alternative I will look at the Wii U.
