Games "Microsoft's Build developers conference in San Francisco has mainly focused on Windows 8.1 so far, but the company spent a few minutes talking about the future Xbox One development platform on Thursday. Steve Guggenheimer, vice president of Microsoft's Developer & Platform Evangelism group, provided big hints at how developers can target the Xbox One in future." Many Windows 8 Metro applications would work relatively well with Kinect gestures and such - so this makes sense to me. Still don't want a 'media entertainment experience device' though; I want a game console.

I loved the idea of having a well integrated PC/gaming console on my living room twithout the hassle of the non-ending updates. When I saw the Xbox integration with Skype and browser I was drooling.

But the MS went on and announced that the console can't be used without the kinect spyware, I can't borrow/sell games and other things.

I also like the integration idea that Sony has between PS4 and PS Vita. Let's hope it works well. ;)
