The Official XBOX REVEAL Discussion

It's officially Xbox Reveal time, duders! Today's presentation is going to be prime real estate for all kinds of news, game announcements, debut trailers, and meme origins. In an attempt to keep the things organized (similar to E3 press conferences) we have instituted this official discussion thread for so that everybody has a go-to place to discuss the news before, during, and after the show.

Keep Discussions On Topic

This thread is exclusively for the general discussion of the Microsoft Xbox Reveal presentation. Please keep in-depth discussions about specific games in their respective forums.

To help you get where you need to go to talk about anything announced or shown during this press conference, we have created a list of them right here:

Keep in mind that the general site rules still apply. So, don't be a dick. If you need a refresher on to conduct yourself like an upstanding citizen of the Giant Bomb community, check out the FAQ.

When & Where Can I Watch?

The event is scheduled to begin at 10:00 AM PDT / 1:00 PM EDT / 5:00 PM GMT

Really looking forward to this event. Sony had a great event, but I have a feeling that Microsoft is gonna top it. I'm curious if they will show more of the ilumniroom.

XXXbox is a better name than Sexbox.

Psyched for this event. I can't wait to finally have a name and some basic info so that we can start talking about things that matter like games.

@chaser324: Bad things deserve to happen to us now for suggesting those names

#12 Posted by EvilNiGHTS (1093 posts) -

It won't happen, but Ybox is by far my favourite name for it.

In regards to the keynote though, after several years of increasingly tedious E3 displays, I've resigned myself to the idea that it's going to be split evenly between dancing six-year-olds, some ESPN bullshit, and the Call of Duty part. I'd like to be proven wrong, but I'm not going into this one with a lot of optimism.

It should be called the XX-Box to get more of the female audience

Gametrailers stream seems to be up;

http://www.gametrailers.com/netstorage/xboxcountdown/live.html

I'll probably be watching there, since that's where Jeff'll be, and they have the exclusive official post show.

Will definitely catch the GB archive though.

Probably doing the same. Gametrailers usually have a quality stream, and I'm going to watch the GB commentated version afterwards.

I'm so sick of making predictions for this, but here is my last one. Steve Ballmer drives onstage in a McLaren P1 half way through the show, nearly killing someone. Announces Forza Motorsport 5.

#19 Edited by xombi242 (187 posts) -

Is there going to be a way to see the live stream on my mobile?

Yup, for the last couple of big events and E3s Gametrailers has been the most solid for me by far (I'm in Sydney, AUS).

Beyond that, the GB commentated archive was the 2nd best thing about the PS4 announcement, right behind Cerny.

#21 Posted by FLStyle (4538 posts) -

I'll check out Jeff on GameTrailers and then switch over to the Giant Bomb stream for the rest of the show.

Hoping for confirmation of native Twitch compatibility.

I'm looking forward to this. E3 this year is going to be great!

Is the chat on the live stream working for anybody? The stream itself is working, but I don't think the chat is.

Nope, the entire thing broke at minute 1 for me. Refreshing gives me a "no show here" page.

#25 Edited by Wandrecanada (401 posts) -

Link to the chat is giving an internal server error or Sweedish Chef video... I like the video.

Maybe the Bomb servers got stomped by all the people trying to connect at once?

#26 Edited by Xymox (2056 posts) -

I refreshed the page and lost the feed. Before that the chat was down.
Double streams though. Get hype.

#27 Posted by FLStyle (4538 posts) -

The chat is all the way busted.

#28 Edited by pandorasbox (302 posts) -

The stream is still functional at twitch.

http://www.twitch.tv/giantbomb

GiantBomb was probably not prepared for thousands of people to hit that one page at once.

#29 Edited by pizzapotomus (46 posts) -

I have resorted to watching it on twitch.tv I can't get to it on the site.

#30 Posted by Nixoney (10 posts) -

I think the stream broke.... I just get the Swedish Chef. yessss

#31 Posted by Marino (4580 posts) -

Chat is up and down.

The stream (so far) is fine.

#34 Edited by namesonkel (414 posts) -

Nope, stream just won't work properly for me, neither will the chat. Twitch or not.
I'm waiting for it to be archived.
Worked just fine to begin with.

God damn it.

#35 Edited by Nadafinga (957 posts) -

So Xbox One wants to be your set top box, your "all-in-one" solution. Biggest problem with that is that there are a bunch of other devices that already do most of that stuff already...they are throwing their hat into an already crowded ring.

If the PS4 continues to concentrate on games first, they might have a good chance at being successful. I find it promising that these two companies, while offering a very similar product, are actually targeting slightly different audiences. It means both systems cold potentially be "successful."

VHS One or Philips CDI One

It really reminds me of a VHS player

Man is this underwhelming so far.

Halo tv show? :/

Sports, TV, sports, one game teaser, TV, sports...

#40 Edited by Chop (1992 posts) -

Really pushing the whole TV and sports things. As someone who lost interest in actual actual television oh so long ago, I'm not sure I'm feeling it.

I'm sure for people who like things that I don't like, that conference was exciting.

#43 Edited by McTangle (157 posts) -

Is this the biggest disparity there has ever been between PCs and consoles for a console launch?

#44 Edited by HerbieBug (4196 posts) -

I think the title is a huge mistake.

They never said they would. This event was dedicated to hardware. They said they would be focusing on games at E3.

#46 Edited by McTangle (157 posts) -

@herbiebug: I get WHY it's called the Xbox One, I just think it's a really really shitty name. I don't think we're alone in this.

#47 Posted by HerbieBug (4196 posts) -

Dog mocap man! The future is here!

#49 Posted by Video_Game_King (35842 posts) -

So far, not much I want out of the Xbox One. The closest thing that appealed to me was Call of Duty, with which I've always had an on/off relationship.
