Hes not at the same place of the track when resuming Forza 5 ?

Watch insightful dialogue such as "Well the right trigger is gas and then there's like.... turning"

Eyeliner? Foundation?

@atwa: This probably took several takes to record so I imagine they just used the same track over and over until they got all their shots.

This makes me more confident in my preorder and may end up using my Xbox One for more than games. I'll eventually get a PS4 but feeling confident about my early choice.

Definitely fake, there's no giant Doritos ad on the dasboard.

Edit: Also, the Game Clip thing looked AWFUL. Is there a way to just record a clip without having all these dumb effects being shoved into it? And also, how long can it record? PS4 takes 15 minutes of previous video.

Definitely thought that Marc Whitten was Patton Oswalt in that thumbnail.

I am disappoint.

Also, "I chose green because I'm on brand". Man. When will these poor jerks realise. We don't want to hear that creepy-ass marketing bullshit.

The multitasking stuff looks pretty cool. However, I can't stand the term "magical" that he keeps using.

Impressive technology. Just not, what I am looking for in a gaming system.

I wonder how all of this will work outside of the US.

It has SkyDrive support. CONFIRMED! I might be able to get Run The Jewels to work, maybe streaming?.

glad im not alone in spotting the resemblance between the two. :D

This is the first impressive thing I've seen from the Xbox One. I wish they'd just stop trying to feed us bullshit and did more of this. There's only so much PR nonsense I can take.

He selected an optional skin before rendering it. I imagine if you didn't, it would just be the game clip.

Loved the part where they tried to address how all this shit is useful to people who don't watch TV, by saying "So, when you're watching TV, now you get notifications!"

Spot on.

I wonder how the game suspension will work with games that don't want to have a pause option like Dark Souls. Would the game just keep running in the background...

Ah I get it now, it's designed for a Goldfish with ADD.

I wonder if Patrick could even be more cynical about everything microsoft puts out and biased toward everything Sony puts out...even when it's bad news...

I'm sort of tired of this attitude

Features like this give the xbox one the possibility of selling gangbusters with the general public and families. This could be a huge success for them.

Me too! If I had to bet; I'd say, "almost none of it will". :'(

I'm from the UK.

Posted by ei8htbit

This looks great. Additional features and flexibility to integrate everything you want, and the ability to customize the interface if you just want to play games and games only. Something for gamers, something for everyone else if they want to be a part of this world.

For all the rumours and doomsday talk about this console, I have to say that I'm impressed by this practical demo.

Posted by DonPixel

ugh

just out of curiosity... Why!? how is that any bad?

Posted by PhilESkyline

I wonder how different this would have been if they never backed off on their "Always Online" "No Disc" vision.

Posted by Hunkadunkasaurus

He says "magical" an awful lot. I didn't realize their partnership with Disney had gotten so strong. Pretty soon games will be "imagineered".

Edited by Yibn

I can see the Giantbomb crew uploading a lot of dumb clips from quicklooks or whatever with Xbox One & PS4.

Posted by koolaid39

Love that he calls bringing the dog into the demo shameless, actually made me laugh out loud.

If this runs as well as this demo it could be pretty neat.

He's obviously being sarcastic to counter that very notion that they are corporate robots.

Looks super impressive, and actually confirms the marking crap about it being the (Xbox) ONE thing that can combine TV/games etc.

P.S Why is the GB description of this video so cynical? I'm not getting either console, but the Xbox hate is so tiresome.

Posted by Levio

I wish all marketing was like this. Simple, straightforward, and shows the product.

Just throw some anime girls fighting giant robots on it and it's perfect.

I laughed when Beyond showed up on the guide section.

"Xbox, can I get a Nude Tayne?"

@masterrain: It's not just GB. There has been a ton of talk about how the Xone's dashboard is completely broken, and how they aren't putting out any non-edited footage of it running. I think The Sess has been talking about that a lot too.

Posted by Zevvion

Man... this kinda sucks.

I'm getting both consoles, but I have some kind of weird mental thing going on where I always get multiplatform games on one specific system and only exclusives on the others. For instance, even though everyone said the PC version of Saints Row IV was so much better and I own a mid to high end PC, I still wanted to play it on 360 because that was my multiplatform machine.

I had just a few weeks ago decided to get multiplatform games on PS4 this next time. Simply because it appears to be the more powerful of the two systems, the controller has gotten as good as Xbox's and I can (final-fucking-ly) play co-op on the same system on my own account and keep my own stuff.

But after watching this (and as much as I dislike Yusuf for constantly talking about TV as if I still watch that and over-using the word magical), I really get the sense that Xbox is once again a step ahead of PlayStation in terms of a useful, and more importantly, smooth experience.

Meh, I don't want this decision to come down to either software or (slightly) more powerful hardware. The best solution is to get over my weird mental block that prevents me from buying a multiplatform game on a different system and just get multiplatform titles for the Xbox One, with the exception of when a game noticeably runs better on PS4.

But I can't get over that. I'm dumb.

Keep your laptop next to you when you play a game and you don't need any of this.

Harrys dog is adorable

Posted by joshwent

Right. And in doing so, just cementing exactly how out of touch their attempts at humor are. Awkward posture, forced smiles, and sterile enthusiasm all in a phony setting. It's just gross.

To be clear, I think all of the stuff in that video looked fantastic and seemed to work wonderfully. I'm not even getting an XOne either and I'm still really excited by it. So... it upsets me even more that MS just can't stop shooting itself in the foot by presenting their amazing stuff in the worst possible way.

He also stole Brad's shirt, apparently.

Posted by Jedted

@error1355: LOL, i thought that was funny too. Not only are they advertising a Sony game on a MS console but it's a NERD-Cubed video as well.

Posted by Sooty

This is a vertical slice and perfect room set ups in use once again.

I really wish the Windows 8 layout would go away, I think it looks abysmal on large screen devices.

Posted by MormonWarrior

Do these "magical moments" happen if I have few friends on Xbox Live and I never watch TV under any circumstances? And I have nobody I ever talk with on Skype? No, I don't believe they do.

I'm all about a slick, minimalist gaming interface that is snappy and gets me access to my games really easily. The 360 has become really bad about that and the PS3 is better, which is too bad because most of my games are on 360.

Edited by GIyn

The only question I have is how much footage the "record gameplay" feature will be able to record. They didn't say any length of time in this video.

And there was no upload to youtube function mentioned.

That Kinect multi-player sign-in looks absolutely amazing. Maybe Microsoft do know a thing or two.

Seems legitimately cool and pretty fast. That said, I don't watch tv and all that NFL, Hulu, Netflix and whatever stuff is not available here. Also, XBox One doesn't come out here until some time next year. Also, who uses internet explorer. Also, this Microsoft guy is not friends with Major Nelson?

Posted by MooseyMcMan

I still miss the Blades.

And I'm not even trolling, I'm being 100% honest.

Edited by wrecks

That ain't no magic I ever heard of. But that tech is pretty damn cool.

Edited by serujiow

@masterrain: It is because this is a very controlled optimal environment. The description is being cynical because companies have previously made awesome videos and claims for things that don't really work as well as they say it would (for example the original Kinect).

Did anyone else read the text at the end? Is "Advanced TV Hardware" HDMI? Also Game DVR and Upload Studio are only in supported games :(

Posted by TopCat88

I still can't get over the fact that they see skype interrupting your life as a good thing. If I was watching football (UK) and somebody skyped me I'd be furious. The same goes for games and movies too. Also, does it pause the live TV when this happens if you have a DVR. If you can set that option it wouldn't be so bad and hopefully you can turn off all the social features if you don't want them at certain times.

That is clearly a joke.
