    hmmm i have to… download that thing??

    • E.Nich

      only if you want

  • JuanCabrera

    It has been a positive newsworthy week! Looking forward to the podcast!

  • Holymarine

    Pretty sure the game is Dynasty Warriors 8

  • Michael Mendis

    That SEGA story was so cool! I’ve been a big SEGA fan since the 90s.

  • Guest

    majornelson = woman

    • Likmijnballenmaar

      Just remove this psychopath Hypertallih from your site Major Nelson.

      • Swat

        Suck up.

  • kannibalZZ

    Great show! Keep up the good work and I can’t wait for November….also looking forward to Gamescom!

  • PHIBALNATION

    Little too late Major, the damage has been done.

  • M_1

    Will somebody at MS explain to me how we’re supposed to use the Xbox One with a ceiling-mounted projector and a dedicated AV closet with that mandatory Kinect and that enormous cable coming out of it??? My Xbox 360 is 20 feet from my screen and almost 40 feet from my projector…

    • Death Dealer

      How do you have your setup with the Xbox 360 now?

      • M_1

        For audio and video, my 360 outputs to a whole-house switching and distribution system (I can basically use it in any room in the house — or in theory, even the garage or back patio although I don’t know if the controller signal would reach). I don’t use Kinect, it wasn’t really that interesting to us, but I thought I read somewhere that a third-party made some sort of wireless adapter (but since I wasn’t interested in the Kinect in the first place, I can’t say I’ve paid much attention to such things).

        I have the same sort of setup at my office with another 360.

        I’d really like Xbox Ones to replace my 360s but this is a fairly major impediment for me and quite a few other people I know.

    • liam

      you can’t …….
      and why would you have such a setup?

      ..or can’t you have like a control panel for were you plug a those things in.
      (X1 hdmi, projector hdmi)

    • thatisbusiness

      USE YOUR KINECT MICROSOFT CAN SEE YOU AND THE NSA.

    • Nick Peck

      They assume that 99.9% of their customers have NORMAL setups, not crazy ones like yours lol. You have to always buy special cables for a setup like that as no electronics device comes with crazy long cables most people don’t need.

      I’m sure the setup is cool but oh well, set the xbo up in the back with the projector then, about your only choice.

  • Guest

    I don’t know MS, I like the Kinect, but if you want to destroy Sony now, who will apparently struggle with profitability and suffer losses with the PS4, I think it would be best to either drop the Kinect from the bundle (to undercut the PS4 price) or drop the price and make it clear that the Kinect can be disconnected. You will destroy your main competitor if you do. Make it so!

    • roozbeh

      i concur, the innovation just doesnt seem to be worth it to most people

      • Sledg

        Neither did touch screen devices until all of a sudden people loved them.

        • roozbeh

          Well Microsoft needs to make an awesome game on it. Then people will be swayed.But due to the ps4 being cheaper i doubt It will have any effect.

    • baconcheeswhiz89

      agreed, a controller is good enough for me to browse the interface.

    • DarkMaturus

      I really like Kinect. I have one at home and use it often. Developers knowing everyone has one is gunna make sure it get implemented into games. Xbox One games have already talked about cool Kinect 2.0 implementation.

      • StonerSmurf420

        And ppl with kinects allready annoy ppl in multiplayer lobbys enough…. mandatory kinect is 1 of the main reasons im not getting an xbox one, cant stand allways hearing echos in multiplayer games due to ppl useing kinect as a mic.

        • DarkMaturus

          True. Kinect 1.0 used as a mic is not very good. Good thing they are packing in a cool new headset. The navigation and media control option are sick though.

          • StonerSmurf420

            Doesnt matter if their packing in a headset, u know perfectly well theres gonna be more echo lobbys with the xbox 1 due to it being forced on ppl. Ppl are paying for it so their gonna use it. True, if kinect wasnt forced on ppl the system would probably be only about $50 to $100 less but point is ppl are paying for it so their gonna use i regardless of how crappy it is, willing to put money on that with the whole xbox on and xbox off thing it will turn off the system when ur talking to ppl and either dont say xbox off or ur telling a friend “this is how you turn off your xbox easily”. Voice recognition technology sucks, plain and simple. What some1 else said about touch screens…. no1 liked them till they worked properly, now that they do ppl like them. Same will go for kinect, once the echos gone and theres 0 issues all together then they willbe tolerable…. maybe even liked.

          • beardyman3218

            apart from the fact this is kinect 2 you havent used and you dont know whether it has echo or not all conjecture.

          • DarkMaturus

            Okay. So you might like a Kinect that works well? Awesome, try Kinect 2.0 before you review it

          • Morris ヅ

            why would ppl use kinect if they got headsets? and they have done numerous tests so im sure if you did use just kinect i wouldnt be echoing but il wait till its out and test it for my self

      • paul rolland

        Reminds me of the Cell processor, Its more powerful Sony said so devs will push to make better games using it, what happened was far from that why bother when we can make games that run on both systems no point spend extra time on PS3 games. I see that happening on Kinect, well PS4 hasn’t got kinect so dont bother adding any feature no point spending time and money on one systems features when we have a game we can sell right now on both

        • DarkMaturus

          I’m talking about exclusives and first party devs primarily. Cross platform titles are a different animal, but as long as they innovate and get creative with using Kinect 2.0 all devs can market that innovation as a selling point!

        • Morris ヅ

          lets see if you will be saying that in 2years time!, remember its alot easyer for devs to work there magic bcoz of the X86 so dev times will come down so they can use that time they had to push more things its going to be very good for next gen and cant wait !

      • Senses Failed

        You are absolutely right, kinect will feature heavily in games, and that’s why i won’t be buying an xbox one. If by cool implementation you mean stuff like using your controller as a shield or pushing zombies away in Dead Rising 3 then I question my understanding of the word “cool”

        • roozbeh

          then your name on diqus suits you well

        • roozbeh

          way to go, getting that comment moderated. so only myself can enjoy your rage. :D

          plus my previous comment was directed at the last part of your comment. i wonder what you thought of touch screens when they came out? oh you werent born back then? its okay even the kiddies can enjoy innovation. :D

        • DarkMaturus

          Just go be happy on another forum. Coming here to hate doesn’t make sense

    • paul rolland

      =o yeah because removing competition has always been they best way to improve creativity and innovation. The reason we have such awesome games is because of competition, 90s it was Nintendo and Sega now its Sony and Microsoft pushing devs to create better games. Down vote me tho if your a silly fan boy who thinks Cod is the best thing ever. Personally I want Ps3 and Xbox One to both sell strong and push each other making better and better first party games

      • Liquidfx Xboxdude

        exactly. i want all game systems to do well so they can get better and better. i just want good games. i don’t care about one system being better than another. the Last of Us was so good so me so i am just glad to have both systems. i don’t care about wiiU though. i have like 10 marios games that i wore out. i love mario but the games are not as fun now.

        • paul rolland

          They need to do a new Mario and stop with the semi 3d ones they keep making, Mario was good because it redesigned itself with every game ^^

          • roozbeh

            another mario game and i will never buy another one. its like an ancient cod

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      i have a kinect and i don’t like it much. most of the games are just not that good and all of them, even the Nat Geo ones, make you break a sweat, which i am fine with, but i exercise seperately from gaming. lol that dance central commercial a couple of years ago is what possessed me to buy a kinect. it looked like so much fun, which dance central is, but the rest of the games are garbage. ever tried playing Rise of Nightmares? I understand the title of that game now.

    • JuanCabrera

      That’s what makes them different! Sony dropped their camera from the bundle to have price as a selling point. Plus, if they had kept the PS Eye, people would compare it to the Kinect and see how inferior it is by comparison. Sony can’t compete with the Kinect v2. I say, keep it in there!

  • thatisbusiness

    I don’t love the xbox it’s stupidy!

  • thatisbusiness

    xbox is stupid i dont love this broadcast. me first console was a gameboy. and im happy with me ps vita. i dont love console im not buying the ps. i buy only ps vitas now.

    • roozbeh

      so your a casual?

      • thatisbusiness

        hardcore portable.

        • roozbeh

          looooooooooooooooooool

          • thatisbusiness

            What the…

          • roozbeh

            how many games you got on it? 10?

          • thatisbusiness

            32

          • roozbeh

            and that all the games on the vita right?

          • thatisbusiness

            Yes. that i have on PS vita 32 games.

          • roozbeh

            good luck with those. i hear being casual aint that bad

          • thatisbusiness

            Okay, i don’t live the PS4 and xbox one so i have popcorn and watch the console wars but i recommedend the Playstation 4 but no plans to buy it.

          • roozbeh

            good. im buying an xbox one for many reasons. one of those reasons now is to p!ss you off

          • paul rolland

            I cant tell as the comments were deleted by that poor person you hammered to the ground, but I would call you the casual for limiting yourself to one system, I love my Vita and 3ds , Ps3 and 360

          • roozbeh

            who said im not buying a ps4? i am. i always buy every single gaming device.
            best not accuse someone when you dont know what they are buying. ;D

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            same here. i am a gaming nut. i am a fanboy of everything except the vita. i am not going to buy a bunch of expensive memory to play games. that thing is a money-pit. its cool but no thanks. i wish MS would have come out with a handheld. there was a rumor one time.

          • Death Dealer

            Yes me 2, I enjoy all kinds of gaming systems, but nobody here is getting removed for saying he likes the Vita, which I think is dead beyond saving BTW and definitely not the future of gaming.
            He got removed for spamming and making hate comments in the other topic.
            MS won’t come out with a handheld because that market is shrinking fast and possibly dead after this gen. The 3DS is doing well, but still selling a lot less than its predecessor.
            I’ve heard rumors MS will support controllers attached to more tablet devices in the future though, so that could replace handheld for them.

          • paul rolland

            I would say Xbox one s also a money pit @.@, the play and charge kit and other features are the same at the memory card issue on vita. I love my vita as I play a lot of Japanese games like clannad and Disgaea, cant wait for the vita version of Disgaea 4 and phantasy star online, but there is also a tone of 3ds going out soon.

          • roozbeh

            and i disagree with your first statement entirely. i actually like having an option to use batteries.

          • Liquidfx Xboxdude

            i can see where it would have value to some. i just have way too many games on my backlog as it is that it is not worth my money or time right now. maybe in the future when they come out with a newer model of the vita.

          • roozbeh

            same here. too much to play on this gen to upgrade to the next gen.

          • roozbeh

            honestly one limiting himself to one console is stupid.
            i actually bought a ps vita. i regretted it after about a week. i hated it so much i gave it to one of my friends.
            i remember the rumor, heres hoping it happens

          • roozbeh

            oh and i would like to add that he was limiting himself to a vita. not even a ps4, A VITA!

            do you still sympathies with him now?

  • thatisbusiness

    why i get downvotes its true!

    • roozbeh

    LIKES PLEASE

  • JuanCabrera

    That was a great podcast! I’m going to guess that Albert’s gadget is Microsoft’s Fortaleza VR Glasses.

  • Death Dealer

    Cleanup on aisle 5, seriously Major, if that doesn’t convince you to implement the SSO, I don’t know what will.

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

      All cleaned

      • Death Dealer

        Thank You!

  • Sledg

    I’m surprised no one even asked what they were talking about at the end of the podcast. Come on Major! Some hints would be great :)

    • Cesar DP

      I aggre.
      Come on Major! tell us, please ^^.

      • Death Dealer

        I think it’s a prototype of MS’s variant to Google Glass, Fortaleza, which should be arriving in 2014.

    • http://www.iamclarence.com Clarence Brown

      Probably a 7″ Surface or a Surface Phone…

  • Monstrous Tard

    Yup, as long as its on the same console.

  • http://raptr.com/unscleric/about UNSCleric

    YOU’RE COMING TO MINNEAPOLIS?! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!! There’s a rare chance I wouldn’t be able to make it if I have a big test that day or something unlucky but I’m pretty sure you can expect me to be about first in line for whenever and wherever this is.

    I have met and interacted with several of my life-long role models and favorite people this year alone (mostly frontmen for my favorite bands at concerts) and now I get to meet Major Nelson finally… This is going to be surreal.

  • andrew salvat

    To be honest I don’t expect for you all to answer me because I do it in so many occasion and never answer. But what is if you own multiples XBO for example I have 2 kids and my self will be 3 XBO in total the I preorder

    • Death Dealer

      It’s great that you have 3 XBO’s on preorder! What exactly is your question?

      • andrew salvat

        the ? is because I own all the Xbox do have to have Gold in all the console or is like I will be like administrator in all the console

        • Death Dealer

          We don’t know quite yet how multiple consoles around the house will be handled with Gold as MS hasn’t clarified everything.

          • andrew salvat

            I think is a great idea about the administration like in PC. Am not playing about the 3 XBO if you go to my twitter you will see in the picture 3 360 but really I have 5

          • Death Dealer

            I hope it turns out that way too. I own 3 Xbox 360s (was planning on getting the same amount of Xbox Ones in time) and I hope Major Nelson can give answers to our questions soon. The maximum of 5 like on the PC would be perfect.

          • andrew salvat

            maybe if you asks to major he will answer for your a leaned allready he will never answer to me and in a point I know why am a student westwood in gaming techonology and many of the questions are on the hardware and they can comments on it

          • roozbeh

            mainly cause all the questions death dealer asked were troll related

          • Death Dealer

            ;)

          • andrew salvat

            I tell you he will answer to you

          • Death Dealer

            :D

          • andrew salvat

            Well if am you I start a list with all the questions. Tall me if you need help because I have a very interesting ones.

          • Death Dealer

            Only if he agrees for me to do so. I could think of about 50 questions that could help him.

          • Death Dealer

            It would be great if Major Nelson could do an AMA (Ask Me Anything) type of thing here on his blog, even if just for once. There are many vaguely answered questions surrounding the Xbox One that many would love to know.
            But I think Major Nelson is not answering you or many of us, not because he doesn’t want to, but more because he is being left in the dark as much as we are surrounding all the policies.

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

            I am working on a Reddit AMA – I can’t say when yet because I want to be sure we can actually answer everything ;)

          • Death Dealer

            Okidoki! Thank You! Would you like some questions to prepare?

          • boe2

            Just subscribe to /r/xboxone. When the official announcement gets made it will get upvoted straight to the top anyway, hard to miss :)

          • Death Dealer

            Thank you boe2. I know about it, but I want Major to be prepared to the fullest. Reddit can be a hornet’s nest.

            Seriously though, what happened to roozbeh?

          • Kenzibit

            Yeah I 100% agree with you. And for now, I for one wants him to introduce us to the new dashboard now that he has unboxed Xbox One for us. Kinda curious and excited about the new dashboard :-)

  • Andreas Lindfeldt

    I hope we’ll get a chatpad for Xbox One as well, but I have not heard anything about it. Are you making one?

    • Morris ヅ

      i hope they do a wireless mouse and keyboard and that chatpad thing thats handy writing long msgs

    • Death Dealer

      Looking at that expansion port on the bottom of the controller I think they surely have thought about it and maybe more exotic than that, like a touchpad or screen.
      I think mouse and keyboard support are a definite possibility too with a Windows 8 compatible app OS running side by side with the games one.

    • beardyman3218

      I hope they have good voice recognition software on kinect so it does text to speech the chat pads buttons were too awkward they were like a blackberry phone.

  • Joshua Guss

    On the video, Major Nelson said “This is what we been waiting for.” This isn’t what I’ve been waiting for, I’ve been waiting for November 29th so I buy it and play it.

  • riopato

    That might have changed when Microsoft reversed the drm scheme due to Sony and angry PS4 fans stirring up trouble.

  • Tonyd0311

    Hey Major, could you look into answering a question regarding output resolutions? We all know that the 360 outputs up to 1080p and has options for non-standard resolutions typical of a computer screen such as 1680×1050. We also know that the Xbox One supports up to 4K. Can we confirm that the Xbox One will also support resolutions between 1080p and 4K? I am currently running 2 27″ 2560×1440 monitors and I would love to use the 2nd as my gaming screen while running Xbox SmartGlass on the other. I suppose I am worried as the 2560×1440 screen does not downscale well to 1080p with the 360 so it is kind of blurry!

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

      I will check

  • http://www.iamclarence.com Clarence Brown

    Wow, that Gadget tease crazy. To be a fly on the wall.

  • Joshua Guss

    The PS4 unboxing video was made a month ago, and the XBOX ONE unboxing video was made 3 only days ago. And the XBOX ONE’s video still have more views than the PS4′s.

    PS fans think more people like the PS4 than the XBOX ONE. If more people liked the PS4, the PS4 unboxing video will have more Likes & Views. than the XBOX ONE’s. The XBOX ONE Conference & Unboxing video was made after the PS4′s, and they still have more Likes & Views than the PS4′s. More people like the XBOX ONE than the PS4.

    • Rob L.

      There are many, many, many, many, many people who do not watch videos of people taking things out of boxes.

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

      I watched both vids and I have to say PS4 unboxing was dull it wasn’t even in a box!!!!
      But when you have a mono tone voice and try to describe parts of the console using words like “thingy” then you can see why Xbox One unboxing has more views

  • Zack Stein

    As a radio guy (news), really looking forward to hearing about how you got into radio. Would also really like to hear how you became “Major Nelson.” The Sega story was neat to hear. Very inspirational.

  • Zack Stein

    It’s neat to hear that you’re “hiring” for your team. But considering all the interest in the gaming community, it really feels like connections will help the process – no matter how much you say one needs to “officially apply.” I mean, I went ahead and applied for all of them. I’m certainly qualified. But I don’t really think I have a shot. If that many people are bugging E about it, I’m sure we’ll be hearing soon about some industry insider that made the cut. It would be neat to hear how you got your foot in the door.

  • roozbeh, again

    major why did my original account get banned from here? im a huge supporter you know

  • roozbeh, again

    guys it seems my original account got booted. anybody gonna ask major to reconsider?

    • MrRadiolips

      Ive noticed a lot of your comments were being deleted but i didnt see anything you said as a “bad” thing. Weird.

      • roozbeh, again

        i actually tried getting back with original account, i got an error saying i dont have permission to access this forum. what could i have said that made major ban me? honestly?

        • Death Dealer

          I don’t know, I didn’t flag you. I flagged the person who was making hateful comments at everyone that you were conversing with. Maybe he accidentally removed you too by mistake.

          • roozbeh, again

            i think it happend right after i said that every question you ask is troll related

          • Death Dealer

            Yes, it did, I saw all your comments were deleted after that suddenly.

          • roozbeh, again

            remind me not to ask you that from now on.

          • Death Dealer

            :D

          • roozbeh_bnnd

            No majornelson banned him flag does nothing.

    • roozbeh_bnnd

      Why are you banned?

      • roozbeh, again

        cause im just to hot to handle

        • TwitterHulp

          lol.

  • Death Dealer

    No, it does not. It has Wi-Fi direct.

    • Rob L.

      If they didn’t ever add BT support for 360, they won’t for One either. Yes, everything has Bluetooth these days and it’s pretty much the standard, but this is Microsoft we’re talking about. They don’t ever want to make things simple.

      • Death Dealer

        I disagree. The Xbox 360 is a memory constrained system. Everything in the OS has to fit within the 32MB footprint (which is VERY small). They couldn’t add an entire Bluetooth stack to the OS as it would take up too much RAM.
        The Xbox One has 3GB available for the operating systems (including running apps) and that could include expansion for more functionality more easily.
        You can think of BT dongles, but things like USB TV tuners as well. The Windows drivers are all available for those and the Xbox One still runs NT kernel, like the Xbox 360.

        • Rob L.

          Nah. Then you could use any old cheapy $10 Bluetooth earpiece as a mic peripheral and Microsoft would lose money from licensing fees they undoubtedly charge all the third party manufacturers. As I said, that would be too simple, even though you make it sound complicated with all the call stacks, tessellation of the occulant occlusions, and whatnots of the Windows For Workgroups 3.11 and MS-DOS 6.22 Slackware kernal driver dongles.

          • beardyman3218

            I’m glad they didn’t add bluetooth there would be too many people with cheap £4 headsets at least if they have this connection it means less companies are willing too make products like this, i bought a cheaper version of the 360 headset and it only lasted 2 weeks before it was no longer recognised when it was plugged in and the sound quality was terrible, a wired connection is more stable than a wireless one.

          • Rob L.

            You get what you pay for :)

            For the longest time I used a normal Bluetooth earpiece as a chat mic on my PS3. Never had a problem, and I don’t think that thing cost more than $15.

          • beardyman3218

            Yes very true, i had problems when using two headsets on ps3 though their signals used to interfere with each other and now and again sounded like a hearing aid. I prefer a wired connection even though the wire can get annoying the connection is stable.

          • Rob L.

            A friend of mine, a studio engineer & real audiophile, told me that there is no such thing as a good quality set of wireless headphones. He swears by wired connections and refuses to use anything else. He claims the wireless technology just “isn’t there yet.” I tend to take his word for it when it comes to that kind of stuff :)

          • beardyman3218

            Yes not doubt about it, the only time a wireless connection is better is if your wire is broke :)

          • beardyman3218

            doesnt the 360 wireless headset use bluetooth?

      • roozbeh, again

        give it time. wifi direct will be the new industry standard

        • Rob L.

          Well, I’m not certain of that. From what I understand, Bluetooth takes very little power to operate, especially when compared to Wi-Fi P2P (a.k.a. Wi-Fi Direct). Devices that sometimes operate in low-power states would drop their Wi-Fi P2P connections. A major concern for things like tablets, smartphones, etc. Transfer speeds are a lot faster though, no doubt about that.

          • roozbeh, again

            again give it time. the tech in it will improve over time

          • beardyman3218

            Distance and interference is a problem with bluetooth, the further away the slower the transfer speeds, i had problems with ps3 having two headsets on in the same room the would disconnect due to interfering with each signal.

        • roozbeh_bnnd

          you can not compare bluetooth with wifi direct.

          • roozbeh, again

            i agree, wifi direct is way more superior

        “Microsoft we’re talking about. They don’t ever want to make things simple.”
        Id like to point out Windows Surface has BT guess Microsoft did make something simple
        BT for me is outdated it been around for over 15 years now and reminds me of the days when phones used inferred to transfer data

  • beardyman3218

    Will gamescom be live streamed on the xbox live event player?

    • roozbeh, again

      probably

      • beardyman3218

        I hope so, i need a definite answer though, i don’t just want to read about xbox one, i want to see it in action, i just wish all xbox events were live streamed to the xbox, i know it takes a lot to set up this kind of thing but im tired of reading articles i want to see more of it :)

        • roozbeh, again

          same here, i want to see that baby in action

          • roozbeh_bnnd

    @DarkGin87:disqus
    dont know why your comment got moderated but i read it anyway.
    well i agree trolls have infested this site. but why ban me? im huge xbox guy who likes every single console. I’ve said nothing that could be ban worthy. im playstation fanboy.
    ban the rest of them trolls not the guy supporting your product.(trolls like hypertallih)

    • boe2

      I’ll step forward. Know that this is well meant advice.

      Do me a favor: Scroll down the comments here. Look at how often your name appears. Notice a trend? And this is what you and your friends have been doing ever since you discovered this blog.

      Not only are you having long offtopic talks that you might as well do in private (because you obviously know each other), you also jump on every obvious troll/anti xbox comment, turning minor nuisanses into major flamewars leaving behind a scorched battlefield of deleted posts and childish remarks. EVERY instance where a lot of posts had to “mysteriously disappear” you are involved. Trolls have always been an issue, but you managed to escalate it to an entire new level.

      Don’t. Feed. The. Trolls. Especially not by throwing insults back and forth. It makes you just as annoying.

      • funny things

        Thank you for saying this, i sincerely apologize, it won’t happen again.

        but believe me i have no idea about what you are talking about here.

        ‘Not only are you having long offtopic talks that you might as well do in private (because you obviously know each other)’
        I really dont know anyone here. take my word for it.

        and well meant tip from me: please change that pic. it really is weird

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

          This could also be why your accounts get banned you make more than one and post like a crazy person through them
          Due to the trolls here ive limited myself to stop posting as often as I did.
          Last month trolls were posting false info and causing lots of confusing with nonsense.

          • roozbeh, again

            i got banned cause i counter trolled too much. i learned my lesson, it wont happen anymore.

            but i wont let trolls spread lies. never.

            i also only had one account prior ban. i thought i lost this one too so i mad another one.

          • roozbeh, again

            can we move on people. please.

      • Liquidfx Xboxdude

        so, basically, you just did the same thing. fine then, sir. how about this. you tell us what YOU want us to talk about and so we are in the know and don’t start blogging on a blog.

      • beardyman3218

        Sorry but this is an xbox blog, if its related to xbox i see no problem in people going off the topic of the post. I find this blog is a great way of finding information on xbox straight from the best source around Major Nelson and the great xbox community. Its a great, easy way to find out information on everything xbox, so no i will continue to go off topic of the post and ask questions about my favourite hobby and engage with the xbox live community, i dont troll, i dont insight console wars so there is no problem.

  • AlkaWeSt

    I know MS will have a press conference at Gamescon but did they mention a time? I can’t seem to find it.

    • roozbeh, again

      i think it was the 21 of august. phil spencer also is giving a keynote on the 20th.
      not too sure though

    • Death Dealer

      Other than August 20th, we don’t know. No time has been given yet.

      • paul rolland

        Why? you really think Sony took all they major business decision after seeing Xbox at E3? not during the development of the consoles life cycle, never mind the fact that Microsoft has always gone first at E3

  • Death Dealer

    The new controller is awesome! Especially the fact that it is both wired and wireless, so if your rechargeable batteries run out, you can basically plug it in with the Micro USB cable and play wired. I hope it works on the PC in wired mode as well.

    Gamescom baby :-)
    What date is the community event Major?
    Me and my wife are traveling by car to Germany from Norway.
    Lokking forward to it!

  • Quanicus

    Breaking News: The Kinect for Xbox One IS NOT NEEDED FOR THE CONSOLE TO FUNCTION! Are you F’ing kidding me? Another 180, another chance to say we listened. Well listen to this, have another SKU and remove the Kinect. Bring the price down $100. I NEVER seen a company flip flop like this, NEVER!

    • roozbeh, again

      wow you actually say it like its a bad thing. so you would rather have them change nothing? stop with the negativity will you.

      • Quanicus

        You’re a legitimate A Hole. Where you complaints I see lies. Kinect was originally one with the system. You’lr X1 wouldn’t work without it. Now it does! Don’t you have some issues to work out with your country. Get to it.

        • roozbeh, again

          Good job. Calling someone an a hole makes you so credible. Well they did things that people didn’t like so they changed it.

          Thats it good hands right now. Incase you didn’t know the new guy just becamepresident. In other words things are looking up.
