TechRadar - Hands on: Xbox One review

TechRadar - There's more to the Xbox One than meets the eye. Sure, Microsoft's E3 2013 press conference revealed a price that was higher than the PS4, and then Sony's media briefing brought down the house by making fun of its rival's insistence on daily check-ins and used games-crippling DRM. (Gadgets, Gaming, Xbox One)

Ahh, finally a positive ( mostly ) article about the Xbox One.

Though still i am not picking it up at all.

Come on M$ pump millions dollars with ur marketing team into Xbox One.
ricochetmg  +   935d ago

evil_element  +   935d ago
Millions of games don't sell, without M$ pr machine.

I can't wait till my x1 lands on my doorstep. Killer instinct is looking pretty awesome.

Also, did the author not read up about the recent 180 on microsoft's policies change regarding used games and the 24 hr check in??

You people are crazy MS will sell your data to the NSA with the spycam that you can't unplug the 180 uturn they did was just to survive all the floodgates of complaints that came in. I just don't understand how people forget that not long ago they had drm and 24 hr checkins - btw people knew the X1 specs for over a year now MS couldn't change them because of the camera enjoy your spycam.

@Psychog

I live in Wales and couldn't give two fucks about the NSA, why would I? and even if they had anything to do with me I wouldn't give a shit if they watched me shagging my fella on the sofa. I've seen enough gay porn to know what angle best shows off my arse.

As for the PS4Eye are you telling me they won't do that because Sony are nice? - They're a Japanese corporation and even with dodgy Engrish they are bastards to a man, just like Microsoft

Here's a hint... Sony Does not include the camera you have a CHOICE to get it if you so please to.
CRAIG667  +   936d ago
well said Gekko.

@NumOnePS3FanBoy -awesome name NOT, yOU CAN TURN THE KINECT OFF AND YOU DONT need TO BE CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET
King Nezz  +   935d ago
My thoughts exactly. When people get a load of my huge shlong, I'll be taking the porn industry by storm. Karlie Montana get on deck. Back to the discussion, if you're afraid of being spied on you must have something illegal to hide. Like you're not being tracked by services like facebook and twitter.

Gekko36...
the problem is... was... last time I checked... that you can't unplug the Kinect and that is just amazingly stupid.

So will Google and Apple. If you dont want your data taken, my advice, get off the net
CRAIG667  +   936d ago
My question is - what are all these tinfoil hat wearing 'tards hiding? that's right nothing.
badkolo  +   935d ago
who cares, let them see me fart around my house
sonic989  +   936d ago
i would trade in any kind of a camera just to get the better more powerful full of games system and that happens to be the PS4
btw kinect the spy cam that is forced on everybody for some reason i am quite sure about it being used to spy on people simply, if we thought for a minute wasn't microsoft spying on our computers most of the time plus they changed skype infrastructure to allow calls monitoring or something like that
so no xbox for me at all bye MS
joefrost00  +   936d ago
With the games that have been shown a better gaming lineup for sony
Your joking right
Even developer that works at sony said MS as of right now(that could change) had the better launch lineup of games
SkyGamer  +   935d ago
and everytime you search on google they store your information permanently and worse than the nsa, they sell them to companies so you get malware and ads. Good Logic...
DOOMZ  +   936d ago
Looks AMAZING, cant wait!!!!!
Chevalier  +   936d ago
Wait how is Ryse MS answer to GoW? Shouldn't they play the whole game before making these crazy claims? Pretty sure people said the same thing about Too Human?
Edito  +   936d ago
They're saying that just because Ryse is about Rome, Gracie, similar game set but it has nothing to do with God Of War... cause we won't be fighting a real size Titan in Ryse instead we'll be more like a Gladiator i think...
Chevalier  +   935d ago
I kind of unterstand what you are getting at, all I am saying is they played a demo which is not representative of the whole picture. Just saying it's similar is a blanket statement. GoW had to do with Greek gods and grand scale, this game deals wih romans on the other hand. It would be like if I said hey Metroid is like Halo because it's in space, has a lone hero and feature scifi weapons so they are the same.

"Microsoft is catching up with PS3"

Now that is an interesting observation. (wink)

I will wait to see if M$ stay by their promises before even considering to get an eXbone this time round. That is one American company no one should ever trust. Their lies and con-schemes are just too much. Where is Milo?

"Offloading the system's processing power to Microsoft's server gives developers the ability to create better, more complex games.
Xbox One doesn't have that Halo 5 launch title as a killer app, but what it does boast is horsepower to make its game and entertainment experiences that much better. "

Sight!

Point in case. How much did M$ pay for this "review"

Oh god stop with the M$ bull$hit. It$ getting annoying. Im gonna go $hit $a$ayan $andwiches all over the $treet.
5eriously  +   936d ago
Be my guest. Just dont $hit M$ logo's

Idiotic M$ fanboys are just that, Idiotic. Will defend the corporate con artists Microsoft at all costs.

You forgot to explain what happened to Milo and the wonderful futuristic AI.

You are just a troll posting irrelevant off topic information.

Reported. Bubbled down and downvoted!
GMWPS3  +   936d ago
Was this a review or a paid promotion??
I felt some hostility in the 'get this through your thick skulls' kind of way. :-))

There is something totally wrong with this review. First of all, it appears old as the cons include 24hr check-ins, used games problems etc. These issues are no longer a problem, so tell me, how does this garbage got passed to be on Techspy?
fingazblank  +   935d ago
Who cares theres a kinect watching you, as long as you aint making things to injure people you shouldnt really be that bothered about it, if your pulling yourself around the front room you should be more worried about being caught by your family.

They are actually thinking about the future of gaming, not last gen stuff, not knocking the ps4 but come on innovation goes along way, what really have they thought about with there console, just raw horsepower, which is fine but forward thinking is what took people to the moon, flew across the atlantic or built the eifel tower. Instead of just making do we wouldnt get anywhere.

My review for Xbone - No.
I kid.
I know it has its plus and minuses, but im just not interested right now. I will get one later when there are like 30 to 40 games that are must haves. In the meantime, I have about 400 games to play and I made a decision to get a PS4 after E3.
Tzuno  +   935d ago
people hate them because of their policies and they are right but do not rush so fast at judging. who knows what games MS will bring in the future that will let you jaw dropping. Just wait time will tell.
JessiePinkmanYo  +   935d ago
Not a single feature listed interests me in the slightest. "The X1 has blu ray now", really? So does the outgoing PS3. "An HDMI in" and other features relevant to cable TV. Wow...TiVo? Welcome to 2003, also, does the X1 even record TV or is it an overpriced cable box?
This is becoming a daily insult. I think it's time to cancel a couple preorders that I have on the X1 and put the cash on some Playstation games for the PS4 I also have on preorder
