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

To me it looks like an anonymous piece of hardware from an IT department. Still, I guess maybe they want it to have a low profile in the living room.

I guess we don't know about HTML5, but I think there's a fair chance it might support it, since Windows 8 does already. It might even have WebGL, since the leaked IE11 supported it.

Sony's stock has jumped on the announcement, heh!

Not surprising :D This Xbox One sounds very casual oriented. Kinect integrated, multimedia features... Right now I don't really like this new direction from Microsoft. But the html5 support, if it's official, is a good thing.

Well while I'm glad we are as a society moving towards a single TV hardware. I find that overall the hardware is still focusing on value of hardware power. Feels like MS is guessing what will be mass market rather than understanding mass market.

I guess we will see how market reacts. personally I think this will sell less than the 360. Though my favourite parts on the Kinect and Vocal. I wish they would toss the classic controller in favour of a better design.

Wow, it's ugly. Looks like they re-purposed a satellite receiver from Alibaba.com ...



I mean, the original was this:

there's an article with select Indie devs asking about xbox one. and so far Microsoft hasn't told anyone as far as gaming goes and how indie devs will fit their new system. So i can't see them doing much to support these types of things. at least not now. oh and it doesn't help with XNA has no support from them anymore.

and the console is ugly. very much all talk about TV and entertainment and sports. it was almost US focus.OrangeTapioca2013-05-22 03:18:58

Microsoft made xbox one only for USA? The services they provide does not work worldwide. Big mistake of Microsoft, Sony has more chance to sell to europe and asia then Microsoft. A little indie game market app in this new gen consoles is something that must be! The new COD GHOST got good graphics but the old style 2D games are still funnier to play like Super Ubi Land. It's a month work for this big company's to make a Game/App Market for small games with HTML5 support. This would be better then most services they provide like talking to your xbox :D, it's a joke!stctr2013-05-22 13:21:39
