    I know that Surface purchase was worth something. :p

    Aren’t they supposed to change the name as well? I think the Sky group won some sort of name battle and MS has to change the name now

    So the name is still SkyDrive? Aren’t they supposed to change that?

      I think that’s just up north even though it’s NOTHING like the stupid cable company lol. I find the reasoning completely stupid, but oh well, I don’t live up there so it won’t bother me.

        So what? it has a kernel. That don’t make it exactly Windows 8. And just because it has tiles doesn’t mean it is Windows 8.

        The kernel and UI of an OS essentially define that OS, so thanks for proving my point for me.

        Well considering they are going for a whole ecosystem to look and work mostly in the same way, why would it look totally different? If it’s like Win 8 / 8.1 I’m totally fine with it, fastest and easiest UI/OS ever, love it.

      when they announced the xbox one they only showed like 3 games. it’s trying to be an all in one device.

      sorta like what the ps3 was trying to be in the beginning.

    Excellent! The more integration with all of MS’s services, the better. But it needs to be more than photos and videos. Music needs to be there and I’d like Office viewer apps too at some point. A PowerPoint viewer for example would make the Xbox One very versatile in Office spaces.

    I’m all for SkyDrive on Xbox One but you should be able to do more with it on the new system than you can currently on the Xbox 360. At the very least, you should be able to upload photos from the SkyDrive to your console. For instance, it would’ve been nice to be able to make a custom background from a SkyDrive rooted pic than only being able to look at it.

      It would be great for backgrounds indeed, but the Bing daily image is something that would be great for that too.

      Just found out the answer to both our questions.

      For me in the UK, these are the launch apps: 4oD – Amazon / Lovefilm – Blinkbox – Crackle – Demand 5 – Eurosport – Machinmia – MUZU TV – Netflix – Now TV – TED – Twitch and finally Wuaki.TV.

      So no Sky player at launch for me, or Sky Go.

        Thats very cheeky from sky, sky player is free to current customers so they decided to make their paid subscription app first to gather more customers from people who are not on the service. Thanks evilfangs.

      the odds of it happening are low.

      as much as xbox one is hated I think it will turn profit pretty early on. the 360 had the RROD issue which surely stunted the profits the console generated. even when the xbox one sells less it will still make money. especially if MS does more i house game development and publishing which means they get bigger cuts when it sells.

      Bing though, I think bing will be gone.

    i really like the way it is integrated, but like many other user, i use another cloud company for me need, because, well, i don’t own a microsoft phone. Major, since Google drive is available on android and also iOS, is MS would be willing to accept to see google develop an application for the xbox one ?

    Let’s make it clear here that i’m not saying one service is better than the other, and i know this is not an android platform, etc. etc etc. I think everyone can use the service they like too, and it’s just nice to see more than 1 option on your console too.
