Great video, thanks for sharing that. I was on the fence, but I'm sold now. Was it me or did dude suck at Forza?
It's really cool to see Microsoft finally acknowledge and even utilize the Xbox brand as the focal point in their ecosystem, finally. Apple has always been a walled garden in regards to their gear working together really well. Microsoft always appeared to be several walled gardens connected to each other, that didn't even acknowledge the others existed. This true unified ecosystem lead by windows 8 and Xbox could prove very valuable to Microsoft during the life span of this generation.
Of course there may be trade offs but I'm to the point of wanting my gear to have seamless integration regardless of brand and OS. Microsoft is getting that concept and taking action on it. It's not about all graphics and frames/second, it's about pulling services together to enrich lives. To me the Xbox One inspires that.
