Unboxing Xbox One

Although we are still a few months away from the official release of Xbox One, I wanted to do a quick  unboxing to show you what you can expect when you open your Xbox One.

Pre-Order your Xbox One:

Amazon

Microsoft Store

More details are on Xbox Wire

 

Xbox One By Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson

  • Berserk Rage

    great unboxing, is there any news about a second Arcade/Core package for Xbox One that comes without Kinect for a lower price?

    • AlexON

      ROFL… yes Santa Claus will bring to you.

    • kftgr

      Can’t you understand that they are trying to avoid their mistake of splitting their user base as they did with the harddrive-less 360′s? That was a big limiting factor for devs in the first half of the last gen as they had to work with the lowest common denominator.

      They won’t go about making that same mistake now.

      • Berserk Rage

        Can’t you understand that the Xbox One will have a better chance competing against the PS4 if Microsoft release a package without Kinect for a lower price? I’m sure that they will release this Kinect less package sooner or later … the sooner the better for everyone sake ….

    • Roberto Merino

      Again, and again, and again, and again…. NO, we don’t want a split user base. If you cannot afford it, get a better job, save money for one more month, or simply buy a PS4 or a WiiU

      • Berserk Rage

        WE ? who are you to make such a statement ? I’m talking to Major Nelson not to you …..

  • punkroyale

    me likes. have had day one on order since day one!

    • Quanicus

      Same here!

  • kftgr

    2:05 in the video. Major mentioned in the video that the Kinect would also function as an ir blaster. So I guess that it would blast signals out and hope that enough of it reflects back to the devices? Really hope it will, or else we’ll be seeing “Official XBOX ONE IR Blaster: $10″ be the best selling rip-off accessory of the generation.

  • Lakers

    You are a fking master

  • Xboner2013

    Nope. Not going to do Microsoft.

  • DarkMaturus

    Headset included!! Love it!

  • https://live.xbox.com/MyXbox/Profile?gamertag=DarkGin87 Lee Rayson (DarkGin87)

    Looking forward to it got my say one console pre ordered, also major on te Kinect does it have a built in TV stand and it sort of looked like it

  • Costas

    PS4fans: ”Titanfall is a timed exclusive , it will come to PS4 too. Dead Rising is a timed exclusive , we will get a better version of DR3 after a few months, KI should be multiplatform”
    Xboxfans: ” Oh , you got Knack , Infamous and Killzone ( running at 30 fps) , who cares)
    I know I sound like a fanboy too , but I ve seen a lot of PSfanboys complaining about XB1′s exclusivity in games, but not vice versa.

    • Xhawk27

      Are you sure about that? It might but in a year or two?

      • Costas

        When Ps4 gets some good exclusives I ll get one.
        I got a PS3 because of Last Guardian. Still waiting.
        I ‘ll not make the same mistake. I ‘ll wait for the games first to be released,

        • kftgr

          LOL. Forgot about that game. When was it first shown and when was it last shown?

        • paul rolland

          Personalty I think PlayStation have had the better Exclusives for the last few years ever since Gears 2 @.@ I really wih Microsoft hadn’t dropped Mistwalker

    • Morris ヅ

      titanfall 2 will not this 1 if its a huge hit

      • Costas

        Really? You must have your sources

        • Morris ヅ

          lets just say i have some info and that is titanfall will not come to ps4 if it sells well on X1

          • paul rolland

            Ill stick with the PC version where I can play online for free, record and upload my videos game play for free ^_^

          • Morris ヅ

            you go do that

          • Costas

            You just said on your previous post that titanfall 2 will come to PS4. Please use some comas.

          • Morris ヅ

            my bad ,titanfall 2 will come on ps4 ,not the 1st one

          • Costas

            One can hope. Have fun waiting

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            hey i just learned that you can buy an x1 and a ps4. isn’t life great? who knew?

          • roozbeh

            mans next major discovery: he can buy both if he wants to.

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      what does this have to do with the unboxing of x1? trying to start some trolling huh? good job.

    • Roberto Merino

      Simply because Knack is meh…, infamous is just ok, and Killzone is not anywere near to be one of the best shooters out there.

  • Xhawk27

    So a headset is now included. Ok now what are the haters going to complain about next? lol

    • Quanicus

      They’ll find something. I’m hearing complaints of the power brick. I could careless, as long as it keeps my system from overheating.

  • Brady Nickell

    I’m soooo ready for this baby!!! Just paid it off now time to start paying for the games!!!!!!

  • Andrew

    I nearly cried, it was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. But now I have to wait until November :( This is going to be the longest wait of my life.

  • Holesome

    2:13 IR Blaster Port on back.

  • Costas

    Major , did you just turn on an unplugged console?

    • Sledg

      lol, i thought the same thing until i saw the power chord was behind the console.

      • Costas

        Yes but it’s not connected.
        Also, the kinect isn’t connected.
        Does that mean that Xbox one doesn’t need kinect OR electricity???

        • Morris ヅ

          it is conected

        • August8th

          Ha ha! “Does that mean Xbox one doesn’t need kinect OR elctricity???” Best comment ever! Just made my day

  • Joshua Guss

    I can’t wait to get a XBOX ONE. The real life graphics will be like I’m playing a game, and watching a movie at the same time.

    A) XBOX ONE has better controllers than PS4 -
    B) XBOX ONE has better games than PS4 -
    C) XBOX ONE has better Apps & Features than PS4 -
    D) All of the Above – ✔

    • Morris ヅ

      F)Xbox One is more next GEN

      • Monstrous Tard

        I think you missed a letter but yeah.

        F)Xbox One

        • Morris ヅ

          really

      • paul rolland

        based on what?

        • Roberto Merino

          Isn’t it obvious enough? PS4 is just like any console in the past 40 years, but with better graphics and a touchpad. Xbox One is the only one wich offers new ways of gaming, new ways of purchase games from launch, new ways of sharing content…etc

    • Morris ヅ

      E)Xbox Live is Better Than PS PLUS

      • paul rolland

        maybe 5 years ago both more or less the same now

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      so that is what you have to tell yourself in order to be happy? hey whatever floats your boat.

    • AlexON

      G) MajorNelson [Larry Hryb] is better than Jack Tretton [poo]

    • Not_A_PC_Gamer

      Wrong again.. on everything except for point A.

      • Roberto Merino

        Xbox ohe has showed more and better exclusives for the launch window and first months, that is a FACT, maybe we will have to wait 5 years for Sony to catch up like what happened with PS3, and that is a lot of waiting.

        The rest of features, i don’t care.

        • roozbeh

          happy you got your headset?

  • Andy Wilding

    Great, they included a sticker to cover the Kinect sensor.

    • August8th

      Ha ha! I didn’t realize they included a sticker! Thanks for the tip, I’m definitely going to use my sticker to cover the kinects camera. Thanks, brilliant idea! Just brilliant

  • paul rolland
    • m1nh0ca

      Excellent!!

    • roozbeh

      ah the master race, those elitist guys can cork it

      • Not_A_PC_Gamer

        You know how I can agree with that! :)

  • Christopher Benefiel

    Great can’t wait to get my xbox one wOOt

  • http://virtualgamemuseum.webs.com/ Louis D

    It would be awesome if it comes with a free in-pack game…

    • Jeffery Taylor

      Hexic 3 would be nice.

  • Dennis Crosby

    This is a little of topic but I just read that payday 2 isn’t coming to the xbox360 digital that a big disappointment to me since I have been buy every game I own digitally since my disc drive died I guess this will be another game a miss out on

    • ryder4life22187

      why don’t you just replace your drive yourself very easy to do.

      • Dennis Crosby

        Im trying to transition into only buying digital copy’s of game I have way to many games and there starting to take over my man cave

  • roozbeh

    honestly you gotta love the idiocy of some people

  • roozbeh

    oh yeah i agree

    pull yourself together microsoft. this has been a massive sh*t storm

  • roozbeh

    anyone see that ign article about the kinect?

    • arrow2010

      Care to give a link?

      • roozbeh

        http://www.ign com/articles/2013/08/08/ive-seen-a-real-xbox-one-kinect-game-in-action-and

        • Alex Fiedler

          That’s really good to hear.

  • roozbeh

    whats the point of the kensington lock though? who is gonna let their console get stolen?

    • arrow2010

      Thieves break into a house and can’t steal it because of the kensington lock?

      • roozbeh

        nice security measure but honestly is it necessary? i could appreciated more when im getting robed though. but they could always break the thing off but not without ruining the case though.

    • slasaru

      That is because they also offer xbox to small businesses, to run video conferences and video and i think some apps

    • Volitar Prime

      Consoles get stolen from college dorm rooms all the time. Including this is a great idea.

      • roozbeh

        When I think of it now its a fantastic idea. I lost my wii to some idiots in law school

      • Morris ヅ

        very good idea as it is alot of money

  • Verachi

    At this point the only thing holding me back is kinect.

    • roozbeh

      for me its price. but i will buy one surely when the price goes down. its worth the money in my view but i just simply cant afford it.

      • arrow2010

        Get a job.

        • roozbeh

          500 bucks is a lot of money. plus with gta v on the horizon i wont need a console for a while

          • slasaru

            And 500 euros is way much more than 500 usd ))

          • roozbeh

            thats nothing. my country’s customs has a rule, anything over 2 kilos you will have to pay customs the same amount of money you paid for the item.
            in short i have to pay 1000 euros for the console alone

      • beardyman3218

        Do they do payment plans in any stores by you, i know you pay more in the long run but maybe it will help you afford xbox one earlier. Theres a lot of 360 games to keep you going till you can buy one though, good luck with your purchase.

        • roozbeh

          no they dont.
          thanks

          • beardyman3218

            Sorry to hear that, GTA V is out soon, enough gameplay in that too last a few years :) cant wait for it.

      • Morris ヅ

        save £10/$10 a week

        • roozbeh

          there so many games i want on this gen that i just cant offered it. even if i save

          • Morris ヅ

            well if you really want next gen jus save from early

          • roozbeh

            and thats a second problem. im exited about the next gen but im not really wanting them yet

  • arrow2010

    Apple did manager by putting the power supply inside the Mac Mini.

  • pulseimpact

    Kinect and price still an issue (they go hand in hand obviously), but I’m glad microsoft is including a headset. Leaning strongly towards xbox one, but I am going to wait a year or so and hope that they release a model without kinect. Kinect is the biggest turn off about next gen for me.

    • Death Dealer

      The new Kinect is worth a lot more than $50. It’s supposedly almost the price of the console.

      • roozbeh

        its about 200$ bucks i think, but my reaction is very close to pulseimpact too. im strongly favoring xbox now but i wont buy at launch

    • Nick Peck

      They already said they won’t release the system without it several times. Just wait until you learn more about it is all, no rush as we have plenty of time.

    • Morris ヅ

      for the usa i dont think $500 is that bad like the ps3 $600 , if kinect is in every console it boosts the change to get a very good kinect game

  • http://xbox.com/ HyperTallih

    I don’t know why people here don’t love kinect it have:

    1.) easy navigation
    2.) voice controls
    3.) object rendering (ie. scans your features and adds them to in game character.)
    4.) Leaning around corners
    5.) standard party games (dance central, kinect sports, etc)
    6.) automatic sign-in.
    7.) controller tracking
    8.) skype calls

    • Druid’s Nectar

      I have the Kinect for the 360. The negative points I’ve found are,

      - Large amount of room needed for the sensor to see you.
      - Most games involve jumping or moving about the room.

      The problems with this is that I don’t live in massive house (it’s typical for the UK market), and the floors are constructed of wooden floorboards. Playing the Kinect means that I have to rearrange the room beforehand, and during play it sounds like a herd of elephants have moved in.

      The kids don’t seem to mind these problems, but my wife and I do, and the neighbours don’t find it too great either.

      The new Kinect has a better field of view, which should elimante room size problems. However, unless developers start to get more creative in the type of games they are developing, and remove the need to bounce around the room, then the Kinect’s appeal is very limited to me.

      SmartGlass is a much better, and more intuitive technology in my opinion.

      • Nick Peck

        Kinect wasn’t perfect but they had to start somewhere. I’m not big on motion gaming but I love everything else it can and will do. But I do agree with you on the limitations, but luckily most of those have been addressed and taken care of with the new one.

  • I_Walk_The_Dead

    I still don’t want mandatory Kinect, but I’m getting PS4 and X1 only difference X1 is going in my game room which only I go in PS4 is going in the family room

    • I_Walk_The_Dead

      Yes thumb me down because I like privacy

      • http://xbox.com/ HyperTallih

        search this on google: will-the-nsa-use-the-xbox-one-to-spy-on-your-family and click the first link

      • roozbeh

        well good luck with that

        • I_Walk_The_Dead

          good luck with what Kinect will be in a brick game room and the PS4 will be open for everyone

          • I_Walk_The_Dead

            Why are you voting me down are you not man enough to tell me why XD

          • roozbeh

            dont you find it odd your arguing with a guy with knack as his photo?

          • http://xbox.com/ HyperTallih

            Lol.

          • roozbeh

            Change of pics huh? Still dont trust you

          • http://xbox.com/ HyperTallih

            Lol.

          • Nick Peck

            Sure I’ll bite. It’s a video game system and they won’t be uploading what you do in your house to some secret government control center that resides on the moon. They won’t share said info with the alien galactic armada so that they won’t abduct you in the middle of the nite because of how bad you dance in front of the kinect.

            How many logins do you have on the internet? Anyone of those can get hacked at anytime. Ever use a credit card online? Ever use a credit card at all? They are just as easily stolen at restaurants and stores as they are online. Have a smart phone with a camera? What does that camera capture and send out all day long?

            Really? Do you plan on getting the camera for the ps4? It will “do the same thing”!!! Man, people like you crack me up. Let me guess, young guy that doesn’t know much about the world to know that somethings you just don’t need to care about? Or a college guy that’s in the “down with the government, plant trees” club?

            Just walk away. Here’s a nickels worth of free advice, less worry, more fun. The more you worry about stuff that is out of your control the better off you will be. It’s a lesson I had to learn the hard way but I’m so much better off now that I know :) Enjoy playing video games on the XBO.

          • http://xbox.com/ HyperTallih

            Go off this forum.

          • I_Walk_The_Dead

            Yes go off this forum because I have critical opinions LOL

          • http://xbox.com/ HyperTallih

            i mean site.

          • I_Walk_The_Dead

            Critical of this site just fine in my opinion

          • http://xbox.com/ HyperTallih

            Walk to the hell boy.

          • roozbeh

            again good luck with that

          • Nick Peck

            Oh god, do us a favor, don’t buy it and leave the site. Also, take a tinfoil hat on your way out, you definitely need it.

      • Zwenti

        You like privacy??? But you use the internet??? And you have probably a smartphone and a credit card?

        Good luck with that “privacy” of yours! ;-)

  • http://xbox.com/ HyperTallih

    lol /watch?v=EeR9ioiNorg (add youtube.c0m)

    • Alex Fiedler

      That is my new ringtone lol.

  • Bush O Connor

    wonder how easy this thing will be to mod. original xbox was easy to mod, xbox 360 easier again to mod. xbox one…without RROD and mods they wont shift as many units :)

    • http://xbox.com/ HyperTallih

      I love modding. skyrim has very big mods.

      • Bush O Connor

        i have master chief armor and more blood only 2 mods i use for skyrim.
        i should have said hack in my post, not game modding. the original xbox was a beast for homebrew.

        • Death Dealer

          I want you want MS’s support for homebrew on the Xbox One, just pay for the developer unlock. That will make anything possible for your Xbox One, homebrew, emulators, etc.

    • Bush O Connor

      why the downvotes? its true. original xbox and 360 are wide open to the mod scene which no doubt shifted a lot more units.
      if the xbox one is hacked within the first year then it will prove that ms leave them open to sell more. afterall isnt it the hardware end they make money on.

    • AlexON

      offtopic…

  • bdavid81

    I can expect none of this since I canceled my preorder and took my $200 back on Tuesday.

    • roozbeh

      canceled what preorder?

    • kftgr

      $200? Where the hell did you preorder from?

  • Roberto Merino

    Come on, they fired Don “EA” Mattrick, obviously MS realized of their errors and are trying to fix them and compensate us for the major disappoint we got.

    Just wait, and when you are ready to purchase a system, examine which one offers more things you like, then you will make the best decission.

    Microsoft’s communication and sales policy was bad, they tried to sell us digital games showing us only the bad thigs about it, or physical games turned into digital by stupid policies. I am in for digital games if the price and policies are worth it, if not, then we have physical games just as they were since forever, put game disc and play, trade it, sell it, lend it, or collect it.

    If only they could add the discless play with OPTIONAL online check every 24 hours…

  • August8th

    As much as I loved seeing the Xbox one this was a very bad move business wise. I don’t know who’s in charge over at Microsoft but I would hope they’d be able to get half decent advisors with their billions of dollars. Where’s bill gates when these decisions were going down. I love the Xbox one and I’m still getting two of them but nearly 3 out of 4 friends both on and off Xbox live are migrating to ps4. I’m worried I won’t know anyone going back to Xbox live to play titanfall. You know you screwed up badly when giant mechs can’t save you.

    The company I work for is giving serious thought into creating a business consultation division in hawaii. So Microsoft if some executive wants to take a tax deductible “business trip” to hawaii and consult with us in hopefully the near future get in contact with me

    • Roberto Merino

      How this unboxing is a bad bussiness move, when everyone seems to like it?

      Or maybe you are trying to go offtopic…

    • Death Dealer

      The only bad business move from MS concerning Titanfall is timed exclusivity, if indeed the case. MS needs to stop doing that and just buy the games for complete exclusivity.

      • kftgr

        When did they say that Titanfall is a timed exclusive?

  • HatemTalebi

    I tried the kinect once and I dodn’t like it, so why would you want to force me to buy it?

    Miscrosoft should seriously start thinking about removing the mandatory kinect to reduce the console price. or at least provide a second kinect-less package for those that are worried about privacy and hates jumping around.

    • Nick Peck

      Nah, I’m all for it as it will get developed for now. Like that blue light bar on the ps4 controller? Yah well it’s worthless without the camera which most people won’t bother buying. They said they aren’t taking it out so that’s that pretty much.

      • http://xbox.com/ HyperTallih

        It’s great as Forza Motorsport 5 and Forza Horizon 2 is able to use kinect like the xbox 360. I love to use kinect to steer.

        • Nick Peck

          I haven’t tried that yet, but I’ll give it a go once we finally get the system!

  • trickbfc1988

    Xbox one looks great cant wait now and also cant wait to play gta when that comes out on 360 and its good that microsoft added headsets with the console good stuff.

  • Mike Putnam

    That controller looks really slim now. Cool unboxing video though always love watching them.

  • August8th

    I don’t think they made any wrong decisions regarding titanfall. Although i think respawn may have made a mistake being exclusive to xbox and pc. theyre just starting as a new company and its their first new IP. i think they wouldve benefitted greatly from the larger market saturation being on every platform would have brought. Soo looking forward to playing titanfall and destiny. Kinect is a calculated risk on Microsoft’s part. I don’t think they went the right direction on that though. With the Edward Snowden and the NSA spying leak I think the kinect is going to look even more unattractive. But I can see why they wanted to include it. If every Xbox has one developers don’t have to worry about adoption rates when it comes to integrating kinect into their games. I don’t see them going back on including the kinect this late in the game. Plus that HDMI in port and 4K cable probably adds a bit to the Xbox ones price as well.

    • Death Dealer

      I agree, PRISM is just really bad timing for MS. But I don’t think it’s necessary to remove Kinect completely, just let customers be able to disconnect it, to show good will. At least with Kinect in every box, MS can claim developer support for it and I’d rather see a $50 pricedrop happen than its removal.

      But why make a new comment instead of replying to your previous one? It’s also August 9th today, or were you born yesterday? ;)

    • Nick Peck

      Why do you care about prism? There are a million other things like it in play 24/7 that you don’t know about. Sony does stuff like this within their country / government too as do all big corporations. Apple and Google do too, just to name a few.

      I could care less if the government watches or listens to me lol, enjoy as there won’t be anything very interesting to see or hear. I’m a good honest person and i have nothing to hide so whatever. The more you worry about stuff you can’t control the worse off you will be.

      I’m buying the XBO to play games and to mess with all of the options the GAME CONSOLE offers. Tv stuff? Great with me as I watch tv so why the heck not? I don’t really get people these days lol, I really don’t.

      • Xboner2013

        You’re the best kind of slave. What kind of world do we where stupid kids believe they have to proclaim themselves honest. Strange. Nick Peck, you should go to school, read history books, you know not too long ago… people were put into ovens because of who their parents were.. ie based on information that was gathered like simple data.

          Well I’m in my late 30′s and have been through things in my life and I know what I need to worry about and what I can brush off. If you are the type to sit and worry about what you think the government is doing, then move to another country (ie. it won’t be any better there).

          Personally, I could care less if anyone is snooping on me, I don’t care. I know the kinect isn’t watching and uploading data lol, I don’t wear tinfoil hats. If you don’t like and trust in the MS brand, with that “cool” kiddy name (hey look, I said xboner LOLZ… :| ), why are you here?

          • Xboner2013

            Why would I move to another country?

            It’s because of people like you that people have to be scared, it is because of people like you… people saying they were not going to worry about what happened in the ovens as they were doing what they were told.

            You would have to wear a tinfoil hat to believe it is not possible… I am sorry you need to join the flat earth society.

            Why are you here? YOu don’t care about anything right?

          • Nick Peck

            I’m sorry, you’re parents fail you. I didn’t tell you want to believe and not believe, but I think it’s HILARIOUS if you think you are being spied on by a video game console.

            I’m here to enjoy video game talk, not dribble from a troll like you. You obviously do not like MS or the Xbox so why troll here? Do you have nothing better to do? (Obviously not).

            I care about plenty of things, but I don’t sit around and think that I’m being watched by the government while I play video games lol, that is just to funny. Hope your bunker has plenty of food in it, isn’t the world due to end again soon?

          • Xboner2013

            “if you think you are being spied on by a video game console.”

            Stupid strawman argument. I never said was being spied on by a video game console. People that use e-mail, phones, and skype are being spied on… a console is just as easy to do, if someone wants to.

            “think that I’m being watched by the government while I play video games lol, that is just to funny”

            Of course, just like people like you did not think the government was watching and storing their skype messages, telephone calls and e-mail messages.

            “Hope your bunker has plenty of food in it, isn’t the world due to end again soon?”

            Who said I had a bunker? When you make no sense what so every you go to strawman arguments..

          • Boss Saucier

            Crazy much?

      • August8th

        I totally agree. I’m surprised your opinion didn’t spark more controversy. I don’t mind the NSA listening or watching what I’m doing as long as it keeps us safe. Besides I think if they are listening or watching what im doing they’re probably going to be pretty bored.

        I agree with you there too. Xbox one is a great game console in and of its self. These additional features seem like bonuses to me. I understand that some may think it detracts from it being a great gaming console. But it’s my understanding that the Xbox one is still very adept at gaming and functions well even without using the additional features. Well except for maybe the kinect. I don’t think I’ll be using the kinect very much except when and where I’m required to

      I also think EA took a massive risk with going in bed with MS. I assure you Valve and Sony are watching, I think this eventually backfires on EA in a big way.

      BTW nice post.

      • Sledg

        No way this backfires on EA! Why would valve or Sony care other than missing an opportunity? Sony would be dumb to even think about not supporting EA games.

      • roozbeh

        but isnt titanfall coming on steam?

        • Sledg

          I don’t know if it’s Steam or the Windows Store.

          • roozbeh

            i expect steam.

      • August8th

        I agree. I think valve and Sony are watching what Microsoft is doing. Essentially Microsoft made their plans very transparent when they revealed their DRM policy. Microsoft is looking to the future and wants to shift into the digital store area. That’s why I believe valve may be watching closely and Sony to a lesser degree. I don’t know if it’ll backfire on EA due to their size and amount of titles and IP’s they posses. But that was a very astute observation. Microsoft is a very big company and is a huge factor when considering PC gaming. I think valve with their steam store could potentially lose quite a bit of money if Microsoft decides to expand into that area.

        Thanks. Your post was interesting and thought provoking as well

  • August8th

    Nope not trying to go off topic. This unboxing being a bad business move is still pertinent to this specific video. To me this would have been an ill advised course of action. There’s still over 3 months before it officially releases so it feels immediately far too soon. While the comments may reflect a mostly positive opinion of this video it’s reasonable to assume there’s a reason why people clicked on a link or searched for this video. Also for me at least, it feels like someone opened my Christmas presents before I got to them. While most people don’t realize it we are all susceptible to subliminal messages and inputs. It’s the reason why we have companies dedicated to arranging and designing your markets, stores, and restaurants a certain way and to play music and paint the walls a certain color. To me it doesn’t feel like it was the right time or the right thing to do. But it’s just my opinion and I’m not trying to start a flame war or change topics. I still have two day one Xboxs coming to me in November.

    • Death Dealer

      Again, why make another new comment instead of properly replying?

    • http://xbox.com/ HyperTallih

      Lol

    • Sledg

      hmmm, don’t watch the video next time and stay away from gaming sites/articles so it doesn’t spoil the experience for you?

    • Roberto Merino

      Haha, seeing how bad reputation you got in a couple of hours here, i thing you should see some *good* consultant and ask him to fix your ideas.

      We all know MS took bad decissions, but you are critizing the good ones as if they were bad. weird.

      • August8th

        A few contradictory opinions does not constitute a bad reputation. I don’t think anyone knows for sure whether this early unboxing was a good or bad idea. It doesn’t look like it changes too many minds either way even here on this forum. There seems to still be quite a few people stating they’re not getting an Xbox one. Again just expressing my “opinion” hopefully the quotes clarify things. Nowhere in my posts do I state that I represent the whole of the community. For any one person to claim to represent the opinions of the community as a whole is arrogant and naive.

        Everyone has differing opinions and while I wholly agree with you that Microsoft made some egregious errors in judgement during their E3 reveal there must have been an overwhelming amount of people who thought to the contrary. I don’t think they would have made such important decisions based on a whim. Differing opinions are common place especially on forums. We need to be accepting and tolerant of the opinions of other people no matter how different their views may be. Hopefully this brings clarity to this matter and we can move on

  • August8th

    Agreed. Lots of love for Microsoft but they did an abysmal job presenting the Xbox one

  • http://xbox.com/ HyperTallih

    FM5 gameplay demo (IGN): /watch?v=E-FsqbMgy7w add youtube.c0m

    Forza Motorsport 5 is still better then Driveclub and Gran Turismo 6.

    And i like the UI.

  • Nick Peck

    Looking great Larry, thanks for the video. Soooo can I get one of those… now? November will not get here fast enough.

    • Sledg

      As I’m looking forward to the next gen systems, I can wait for November. So much to do between now and then. But I’d be more than happy if MS wants to include me in their closed beta :)

    • http://xbox.com/ HyperTallih

      Me birhtday is on 20 october.. i want the xbox one on 19 october :(

      BTW new tweet majornelson: My Friday is getting busy! And I like it.

      and: Pick up a copy of “Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier” for $11.95

  • Sledg

    Hey Major, I’m looking forward to Gamescon! I hope you show some new game IP. I hope it’s streamed as well.

    • AlexON

      I think is Crackdown 3… edit [isn´t new, but is a big announcement]

      • Arminator

        Since Crackdown 1&2 are banned in Germany, I have some doubts. But then Gears 3 was shown 2 (?) years ago, and those predecessors were banned as well…

        • AlexON

          gud point…

      • Sledg

        I hope so! I’m really enjoying Crackdown. I can’t believe I never played it prior to them offering it for free To be honest I never heard of it prior to that.

        I am wondering what the other MS studios are doing though since they haven’t announced anything yet. Let’s see, there’s Lift London, Lionhead, and a bunch of others.

        • roozbeh

          add black tusk to the list

    • Morris ヅ

      what if it was Left 4 Dead 3 only on xbox and of course steam?

  • http://xbox.com/ HyperTallih

    Can’t wait for Gamescom!

    • AlexON

      same here…

  • conrad owens

    I wonder if the Xbox logo on the kinect also lights up/acts as a power switch ?

    • kftgr

      Why would they bother when they are so gung ho about “Xbox, ON!” ?

      • conrad owens

        The system itself needs a power button because not everyone can speak. Ex Deaf/mute people.
        Also a button is needed to reset and recover from a system crash.

        Anyways I was just thinking out loud with my question. :)

      • August8th

        Ha ha! “Xbox on!!”

        • roozbeh

          ???

    • http://www.majornelson.com Major Nelson

      It does lights up – but it’s not an power switch.

      • conrad owens

        Neat ! Thanks for the reply major (^-^)7

  • kftgr

    Ah. I thought you were talking about the ONE. BTW, the later revisions had lower power requirements…not sure how much less it is now.

    I’m quite interested in seeing what the various power states are. Supposedly standby has been said to be less than 1W. The most crucial would be how much additional is used to watch passthrough TV. Power/speed governors have advanced from 2005, so hopefully it’ll be much less than the 360 in dashboard.

  • daquijones

    I like the white LEDs instead of the green. We’re gonna get a kinect whether we like it or not. Wish it was an option but say what! Just make the best out of it.The kinect won’t be bad for skyping because not everyone owns a smart tv with built in cam.

  • DannyB10u

    May be wrong but I though there was to be no power brick? little disappointing but at the end of the day not an issue

    • Morris ヅ

      they did/didnt say anything about it so you shouldnt assume

  • Boss Saucier

    No rechargeable battery pack.
    /sadface

    • roozbeh

      what? plug and play? rechargeable batteries?

  • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

    can i reserve the one you just opened and have a signed manual ?

  • roozbeh

    well friend im living in the middle east too so i can probably provide some answers.
    1.unannounced by microsoft.
    2. yes you can, just like the 360.
    3.sadly no, the middle east is not supported at launch.
    4.you dont necessarily need to do that. pre paid codes will still be available. plus the xbox one is no longer region locked so you probably wont need a vpn anymore for the digital games. also on launch there will be no saudi account. but you can use a us account with no issue.
    5. not at launch but expect showtime and aljazeera in the future..

    i agree xbox is huge in the middle east.
    happy gaming
