Well for one thing, pure specs alone isn't want defines the user experience. 

 

But 8gb of GDDR5 tied in with the CPU is odd, just ass DDR3 tied in with the GPU is odd.  We'll have to wait and see which has the worse implications.

I think that's Microsoft focus, being more mainstream. They probably want Xbox ONE to replace your tv receiver, tv top box, your Blu Ray player, subscription channels, console, etc etc etc. That you go through them for all your entertainment needs, and they are making sure they're providing as many entertainment ways as they could cram into Xbox ONE. PS4 is way more powerful, at least going by specs, but until we see the actual speeds of those components, PS4 wins hands down.

But Kinect 2.0 intrigues me: this time is an essential part of Xbox ONE, not a curious afterthought like the first Kinect was, and it's beefied up to the max with all kinds of sensors and the software seems capable of quite a bit of measurements(expressions, blood flow, muscle tension, heart rate, etc). Microsoft also have that Illumiroom thing going on, and I wouldn't discard they're developing some sort of VR like the Oculus Rift...maybe they're even working with Oculus devs.

I would say that going by the specs provided by both Sony and Microsoft(they haven't disclosed the actual specs/speeds), PS4 seems more powerful, but Xbox ONE functionality seems more promising. Nevermind, come E3, you cracker, we want MOAR GAMES!!!

Other than GPU being a bit better than the 360's.....I wouldn't go as far as to say "way more powerful"
 

I agree with the kinect part though.


Kind of like how they required broadband for Xbox live.  It became a standardized platform that the OS and developers could depend on.  Now if we ALL have kinect, they can make meangingful additions to our gameplay and not just games for grannies

The only reason I got my 360 was due to Forza 4, the game has entertained me for many hours and it still does and I also love the 360 controller when it comes to racing games. I really hope next gen Gran Turismo will deliver with the PS4, especially when it comes to engine sounds so I might stick to one console instead of buying two.

Looks great! I actually really like the design of it. Doesn't look "gamey" and cheap.

Day one buy for for sure. Can't wait for some Halo 5 news at e3.

I really like Anands conclusion and kinda eluted to Microsoft making Xbox a platform in the feature since Xbox One uses 2 virtual OSes in Hyper-V. Can you imagine having your home PC the same way. It would be awesome for exclusives and racing/fighting games.

I don't understand why so many people are upset about the new Xbox, they changed demographics to a much wider audience. From a business standpoint its absolutely the right move, and it looks like they made a solid box with a good back end. The switch to X86 also means the extreme likely hood of a unified online environment between Xbox and PC, much higher quality and faster ports to PC from console and vice versa, and a much easier platform for developers to make games with... The only sub demographic that wasn't specifically catered to was the extreme gamer's who play 40 hours+ a week, even though this console would still serve them perfectly well and do much more, they complain because its not a gaming platform first and foremost.. Some day it will click with them that though's days are over. I have a cable subscription but I never watch it (because that would involve unplugging/replugging basically everything).. All that's in my living room is a PC that streams movies from Netflix or a network share. This is the first time, EVER, that I have been excited about a console enough to buy it. Why? because its useful, simple, and does exactly what I would want it to, and all with the use of a comfortable controller, instead of a clumsy keyboard and mouse on the coffee table in the living room...

I agree with you. MS made a living room appliance and it was the right move considering how HTPCs have boomed. The target audience is still the people that owned the 1st Xbox and has grown up with it.
