    Eh, seems like an interesting feature more so for the friends feed, the other two features shown would be an easy distraction when trying to play a game. Are you getting a Xbox One John? I personally am going to start with PS4 so I was just wondering what console you prefer.

    Unfortunately, both consoles are simply way too expensive for me to be able to afford them. I’m a PC gamer, with a not-so-good computer to play, but when it comes to consoles, if I must choose, I go with the PlayStation, basically….I get a console to play games, not to watch TV

    Oh, I am a console gamer, and I choose PS4 basically because it was the cheaper option, plus I play on PS3 now and I enjoy it more than I enjoyed the Xbox 360 so I had an easy choice when it comes down to it. But I always enjoy hearing different perspectives one way or another.

    That’s good to hear! I normally avoid these kind of discussions because of the massive amount of fanaticism that is out there when it comes to Microsoft vs Sony. I’ve even been called names in different communities where I’ve talked about this matter, simply because I don’t support one company or the other…

    Yeah if I were you I would probably avoid the question as well. But I am relatively new to wordpress so I have been lucky not to be attacked for my opinions as of yet, I think part of it it because I don’t say what console is better because they both have good qualities about them. I just say which console I prefer and I’ve been a Playstation gamer since the original and I started this generation on the 360 since I didn’t want to wait for the PS3, but I ended up with a PS3 later on and I enjoyed it enough to just cut my losses with the Xbox 360 a couple years ago.

    With that said, while I am getting a PS4 first, I do plan on eventually getting an Xbox One down the road once I have the money whether that be with or without a price cut.

    Keep up the good work John.

    Thanks! I have barely had any issues when it comes to WP, it is on more “open” communities where I contribute that I’ve gotten those sort of comments, I find it funny, yet sometimes it gets to be quite annoying

    I’m curious as to why the Kinect flashed “stop listening” every time that he snapped to something else. I am also a bit reticent to believe that Machinima snapped up that quickly. I understand the computing power available would allow it to do as such, but even the internet connection would have a loading time.

    I guess what I am getting at, is that I always get the feeling that these Microsoft presentations are scripted and staged.

    I really wouldn’t be surprised if that was the case, given all what has gone wrong with the Xbox One so far, all those policy reversals and such…I had the exact same question as you while watching this video, but after researching I didn’t find an answer to it, sadly…

    I did some research as well, and had the same luck. Unfortunately, I doubt any will realize the discrepancy until they log-on.

    Indeed, that might be what happens in the end

    This has always been my favorite blog for gaming news, tips and tricks. I would love to hear your insight on the new Xbox One. I’m sure my daughter is going to want to upgrade. I am a WordPress blogger as well as Squarespace blogger that has been following your blog for a bout 6 months and enjoy it. Keep up the wonderful post..

    Hey, firstly, thanks for the kind words! Now, there’s nothing I would personally love more than be able to do some hands-on with both next generation consoles, seriously, I’d love to, but unfortunately, I have no way on getting them in order to do some more personalized articles about them…Might anyone on the team be able to do so? We’ll have to check on that…hopefully yes, though!
