Really Microsoft? Your 'big reveal' is that I can admire CoD's new German Sheppard texture while using Internet Explorer to Bing how to 100% the game, then Skype my friends while watching a movie and ordering Pizza Hut, and I can do it all in my cramped living room using a shitty motion control sensor that I am thoroughly convinced is a spy camera, what with its ability to read my god-damn HEART RATE and MUSCLE STRESS?
I'll stick with my PC, thank you very much. It also has 8 gigabytes of RAM, not to mention 2 Gigs DDR5 (Really, really fast in case you were wondering) dedicated to graphics alone. Also, I can play a game, use FIREFOX/CHROME to GOOGLE things if I need to, Skype-chat my friends, order a pizza, browse twitter, do my homework, and fucking anything else I could possibly think of all AT THE SAME TIME using ACTUALLY DECENT controls.
And it doesn't cost extra to play used games, access the internet, watch TV, use that voice-activated shit that people will rarely use (except maybe 'Xbox, go home', and even then only to make the inevitable 'you're drunk' joke), and duel-tasking.
Oh yeah, and I don't have to keep my old computer every time I upgrade- there are backwards compatibility bridges built into most machines, and if I need a certain one that isn't built in, I can GOOGLE some to download.
IT'S A PIECE OF SHIT. But I'll probably end up buying it in a couple years, once some good games have been released on it. Also Halo 5. I just gotta.
Watchdogs looks amazing, by the way. Kudos to you Ubisoft! You know what's up!
ADDENDUM: I'm a little calmer now, so I will add that I'm mostly upset at the almost total lack of gameplay and info on new games. A lot of the Xbox One's features aren't actually all that bad. They're just vague and unfinished, probably because the console is still in development.
Oh yeah, by the way Microsoft, 'later this year' is NOT AN ACCEPTABLE TIME FRAME. By ANY means. At all. Seriously, why not just say, "we're still in the process of developing and refining these features." I'd be cool with that; it means I'm getting a decent console!
