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.

The problem is that very few people (including myself) are going to pay $400+ for a game console, so you'd better make it do something else in addition to playing games. I'm not saying that I'm jazzed about doing searches with Internet Explorer on a split screen while watching TV, but then again... I'm not the majority who watches TV either.
