Microsoft’s debut of the Xbox One has generated some interesting ripples. After absorbing all the initial reports, the only thing I was sure of was the fact that Microsoft wanted me to have a more intimate relationship with my TV and Call of Duty. Those questions and many more have been answered, thanks to the Verge Staff, through the great post, Xbox One: Microsoft’s new console, Kinect, and a big bet on TV. The post is 24 questions raised during the presentation and followups. A read imparts the impression of a rushed launch, poor decisions and a potential security issue. Thanks to everyone at The Verge for this great work.
Microsoft has been behaving oddly since they moved into mobile ‘catch up’ mode. It feels like this is another move where they just missed a big win. Gamers may respond financially, but I doubt Microsoft is happy with the press. Still, someone had to be the first to paddle this uncharted territory, and for that I applaud the Xbox One development team and the lumps you will take.
