As I mentioned in the other article, it's freakin' hideous. Although the updated controller and kinect certainly look interesting. It couldn't have taken more than 15 minutes to design that enclosure though, with the majority of that 15 minutes used to finish eating lunch.

Compared to PS4 it at least looks like a real product.

Hehe true enough, still disappointed though. I actually liked the look of both the original and slim Xbox 360s. Forza 5 certainly looks very pretty though.

Hmm, I never had a single issue with the livestream, was one of the few areas I was actually very impressed with. The PS4 reveal stream was an utter shambles by comparison, was simply impossible to get running at all for a lot of the event.

Sad they ended it on CoD though, the game looks damn awful. I'm not sure what their lighting department is doing over at IW, but they should do a better job. The shoddy lighting means the game doesn't look much better than a 360 title. Comparing it to the BF4 footage or even BF3 is embarrassing.

Find it interesting how the most exciting reveal for me from the entire event wasn't even to do with the console itself, but was the Halo TV series. I really enjoyed FUD, and with a good budget and with Steven Spielberg at the helm, it could be really good. Of course it could also quite easily not live up to the hype, something Spielberg is certainly good at too.

About the same time the most important parameter for a graphics card became the RAM on it .

I wonder whether it will be 8gb of gddr5, like on the ps4.... If not it will surely give the edge to Sony.

My livestream died several times, then just stopped working totally. Both Sony and Microsoft fail at streaming, which is a bit odd considering they both push cloud/online services and Microsoft just bragged about how many servers they have.

It's DDR3 with 32MB of ESRAM in the SOC to try and speed things up a bit.

To be honest, that is pretty stupid reaction. PS4 is just a console. XBOX One is a console plus a media centre. While for gaming PS4 looks a bit better, in overall aspect XBOX One is probably going to sell better on the same grounds as PS3 was bought at start - as a media device. The reaction probably overestimates the effect of the gamer community and underestimates the effect of the causal and media community.

How this competes with the bandwidth difference that GDDR5 brings will be interesting.

8gb ram, 500gb hard disk? This is gonna be one hell of a PC beater. It will beat the PC for years to come. It's a game changer. Apparently they've also redesigned the ring of death. It now has a different colour and flashes to indicate the severity of the console failure. I can't wait to buy one. I'm gonna sell my PC.
