bigmf;5016535 said:I think this has been the most disastrous new console announcement I've seen. They should have addressed the mandatory internet connection issue, mandatory kinect usage, no game trading and even backwards compatibility. They didn't do it. They let it all seep out of various channels after their event.

bigmf;5016627 said:So you don't have them leak out in a pathetic disjointed manner all over the internet after the fact. So they can try to put some positive perspective on each of them. So they can be prepared for the questions and deliver a single unified message on each of them. So they can control the marketing message, rather than engaging in desperate firefights. And finally to clear the negatives out of the way so they can focus on the positives going into E3.
Meat-Popsicle;5016632 said:It's like they knew that the details would cause outrage if they laid them out plainly in their widely-viewed press conference. I am guessing that they figured it was better for people to hear the details 2nd hand or 3rd hand over the next few days. Maybe it's easier for people to go through the stages of grief that way?
Lawdog1521;5016629 said:I can't find the article but the response to the "always online" issue by one of the MS execs yesterday exemplifies their incompetence. "It doesn't have to always be online as long as it's connected to the internet"When you're tweeting stuff like that, you've dropped the ball.
Wittikiss;5016649 said:Well since the Kinect has to be always attached for the system to work and it will read your facial expressions as you play games. I'm going to refer to it as the Big brother box. And ruin my age old tradition of playing nude.

I also expected 3d file support to be talked about.My guess is that spying on homes , listening and lurking was the priority. They talked about lifelike , I don't play shootem up style games. If I laid my tv down on a desk and plugged the new one in then played a lifelike game of pinball , then it is good to be lifelike.It is hard to use one in a sentence to refer to this as above " plugged the new one in " . One as the items name passed the suggestion phase and the board and theceo approval stages , the pre reveal hype through to the , the one the one and only one , it is the one . Boxy one or as others said xbone connected.I also thought that family that spent on dlc for family and now one is off to college , that student would have access to family purchased dlc .

If you're backwards compatible, you're really backwards

HeyRiles;5016673 said:I still don't understand - why would you tell people the weaknesses and drawbacks of your product before you talked about the positives and the things people want to hear? The point is, as most everything when trying to sell a product or service, is to make a good first impression on what you're trying to get people to buy intoA marketing method like that seems extremely XBoneheaded
