Sounds disappointing to me. I don't think anyone really cares about the team that designed the new Xbox or how it was made. All we really want to see is the console and some games, but it seems we're going to be shown an Apple style presentation telling us how the new Xbox is the greatest thing ever and will make life worth living again, and we'll have to wait until E3 to see the most important thing - the games.

Xbox can do with some exclusives. As a gaming console, gaming needs to come first, multi-media second. Although to bring in a wider audience, Microsoft need to appeal to a wider audience. Wait and see I guess.

Why does there have to be a first and second focus? Why cant we have both gaming and media in an equal and awesome package?

Personally I quite like the way Sony, and seemingly MS, are presenting their next generations. In previous generations, current included, it's all been about the hardware and pushing pixels. These days it's more about a multi-faceted entertainment experience that is more than just gaming. It's social, it's competitive, it's collaborative and user-generated.

Both Sony and MS are embracing and advancing their offerings by approaching things from a more emotional viewpoint, more gamer/user-centric. There's a lot of emphasis on the passion our hobby creates and making gaming a bigger part of our lives. Rather than further enforcing the perception that it's a destructive hobby where we sit in a corner or stew on a bed/sofa like some sort of mindless insular beast of habit and obsession.

I like it this way. Hardware first in a focused presentation. Then followed up by purely games. Sony's presentation was a bit of a mess in parts jumping around from platform to games etc. STill if the MS presentation is as good as Sony's I'll be happy.

They still need to scrap the Gold sub for gaming online though, without that change i'm heading back to Sony for sure.

Given the American affection (and affectation?) for hanging onto outdated units of measurement, I would have thought they'd have said 'tons of exclusives'.
