It's a prime example of how US focused Microsoft are. Over there, everything is on cable, and everybody has cable, so HDMI in makes some level of sense. Go overseas and this falls apart - the only thing I would plug in to an Xbox One would be PlayStation. I also don't get what happens if you have more than one box, or an AV receiver with up to six devices plugged in. HDMI-CEC gets confused at the best of times, so this "control" they're touting over your "life" is going to be a mess. CoD good? Really? They just said that you can run and jump over obstacles automatically. That means they're bad at games. Or drunk.
