XBOX ONE

Discuss game development design and post your game ideas

Post » Tue May 21, 2013 6:17 pm

I'm watching an XBOX special on Spike right now. They just revealed the XBOX ONE, which looks pretty cool.

It doesn't look like a gaming console anymore. It looks like a hard-edged box, like a receiver or a first-gen VCR before people started the curved edged designs.

The kinect looks a lot bulkier, too, and for the purists, it looks like the controller is still the same.

Right now, the guy is featuring the interface. "XBOX on," to turn it on. "XBOX TV," to make it play TV. "XBOX game. Go to TV. Play Music. Go to Internet Explorer. Watch TV." Apparently is has a rather decent "Instant Switching" mechanism that looks really fast, and just pops up whatever you want. It's very Star Trek, but instead of saying "Computer," you're saying "XBOX."

"Xbox Snap Skype," splits the screen in half, leaving your original window open, but opens a second window next to it with Skype or whatever. Sounds like a Windows phone.

I'm sure it's all simulated for the purposes of exhibition, a la lip-syncing, but it looks kinda cool.

I'll post again once they talk about developing. *IF* they talk about it.

Everybody got to come out of the closet... does that mean I'm allowed to come out of the corner? Is that even funny anymore? Do parents still make their kids stand in corners when they mouth off?? These are the questions that keep me out of the really good schools.

Does it play games?

Seriously, I want a game console. Not a multimedia center.
Sony said PS4 would be indie-friendly, so think that will be my next console.

More from EA-
   4 time more calculations per second, wider field of view.
   "10 times more resolution and realism..."
   Dynamic Sidelines
   New content Daily
   Fully 3d crowds
   Gameplay looks pretty good, except for the eyes. Still Uncanny Valley.

Head of MS Studios Phil Spencer-
   Demoing Forza5
   Looks pretty realistic, except for the camera angles.
   Demoing Remedy Studio's Quantum Break
   Eh, looks okay, but was waaay to short to really tell.
   
Bonnie Ross from 343-
   Talking bout some Halo
   LIVE ACTION HALO TV SERIES.

WTF Steven Spielberg-
   Blah blah pong...
   Blah blah halo is wonderful.

*****

Back to sports-
   Blah blah fantasy football.
   Live broadcasts, automatically updates your FF stats.

*****

"LAUNCHES LATER THIS YEAR."
"MORE AT E3."

*****

Call of Duty Ghosts-
   New world
   new narrative
   new engine
   new charas
   Um, whoa. It looks kinda sick. Especially the underwater segments.
   You get your own doggie! He gots armor!
   Polys out the wazoo... turbosmooth what?
   Fluids, smoke, fish, all sweet.
   (and i don't play shooters...)
   dynamic maps with earthquakes and floods
   chara customization, pretty deep.
   realtime volumetric lighting.
   it's nuts, i might play it.
   THE FLOODED STREETS... wow.

Sorry guys, no Dev talk. Pretty disappointing. But still, what do you guys thinks about these specs? Not too shabby. I think if the designers could learn how to make the model's eyes squint some, they'd be indistinguishable from reality... well, aside from the impossible camera angles which totally break the illusion.


Everybody got to come out of the closet... does that mean I'm allowed to come out of the corner? Is that even funny anymore? Do parents still make their kids stand in corners when they mouth off?? These are the questions that keep me out of the really good schools.

You and me both. But I'd still go play the new Call of Duty at a friend's house. I hope they talk about Devs at E3, because this reveal wasn't that awesome.

Power to the indies!

Did anyone catch the mention of "Web powered applications"? I think it's highly likely Xbox One will be HTML5 compatible.

The XBONE (yes, this is what we're calling it) is not a gaming console anymore, it's a multimedia center.

That's exciting! Keep this thread updated about possible HTML5 support.

Somehow I doubt there will be webGL ;)

@sqiddster

No they wont add webgl because of security reasons.
Obviously voice command listening all the time poses no risk what so ever...<sarcasm/>
