I wish MS had the audacity to show that commercial in reverse. Attractive woman is watching America's top model. Fat and unattractive gamer stereotype type guy walks in, woman says "pleeease I need to know who wins!". Guy nonchalantly says "Xbox show my stuff", fires up battlefield. Guy goes on a killing spree, while the woman watches in amazement at his skill, starts getting aroused and jumps his bones.

At least that would be targeted towards the right people, cause that Jennifer commercial is like a nightmare scenario for gamers that they really shouldn't be promoting. "With the power of kinect, your woman can hijack your Xbox with the sound of her voice." Is that really a bullet point they want on the back of the box? At least when my wife nags me I can tune her out!

Or the least they could have done was give us a gratuitous upskirt shot of Jennifer. It was close. biggrin.gif

Or if they wanted to sell it to parents:

The kids are playing call of duty, being super loud and annoying and misbehaving like crazy. A really frumpy looking mom walks in, who looks clueless about tech, and asks "have you done your homework?" The kids don't answer. Mom raises her voice and says "I think it's time you turned the xbox off." Kinect hears the command and immediately shuts down. Mom smiles. Cue Xbox one logo.

Run that commercial over and over during dr. Phil and Oprah and It'll sell like a million Xboxes one this Xmas.

You never know. They advertised the fact you could hook up an ipod/iPhone to your 360 for music playback. Smartglass for your iPhone. Skydrive on Idevices.

It does, I just downloaded it to my iPhone and am uploading some videos and pics of the family. It gives you 7 gigs of storage, which is nice.

It would be nice if it had an option upload camera roll pics and vids automatically at night or something, right now you have to choose to do it manually.

It would be nice to share existing cloud data and not upload to each particular cloud server depending on the app... Dropbox, iCloud, drive,... Getting there.

Yeah.....I don't want my console doing that. It would be really ****ing annoying if a little box popped up every time it recognized someone walking into the room. I'm sure you would be able to disable it, or it only did it once a day (or per activation of the conole?) but still....in the middle of watching a show and its on the good part then [HI JENNIFER!]

No thank you Xbox!

Stand tall and shake the heavens...

I think Kinect was a great example of the difference between the launch of 360 and Kinect. With Kinect you had a ton of families broadcasting their experiences on youtube on how much fun they were having with Kinect. To me the One Guide has the same sort of "look how cool this is for the family" appeal. So every scenario we could come up with as group will be on display on Youtube the week after the One's launch.

Is anyone else thinking of taking apart the headset controller adapter and making a mic output? I will never use mine so I am going to see if it is possible to just make my own adapter. With no official adapter coming until next year I think it is worth a shot. I am thinking it will be 4 wires, 2 each for microphone/earpiece. Planning on running a cable out to give me the 2.5mm jack I need. Anyone have any thoughts on how hard this might be?

edit: I can't be the only one who spends ungodly amounts of money on headphones! I want to use my AKGs with my microphone, not Kinect!

I read a strategy that some are going to use (a strategy that was used on the 360). you wrap the mono headset around your neck. that will be your mic.

in the settings, pipe the chat audio through the speakers (the combined audio). your surround sound headset will have the chat audio and the game audio. with the improved audio codec, this should be good enough until the adapter is out. or until true Xbox One headsets that don't require an adapter. the adapter is just an transitional interim solution so that companies like Turtle Beach don't have to spend a lot of development money on Xbox One only headsets. Their feeling is that you can use their universal headset with an adapter. Once the Xbox One base is large enough, they'll jump in with true Xbox One headsets.

I am hoping Astro releases a new mixamp, wireless of course. I don't have a problem having my headphones and mic hooked into a relay that sends the signal to the actual decoder. It would be awesome if I could just hook up the headset to the controller itself and that be it.

This is what ANdroid does with all of my Android devices. It automatically uploads any pictures or videos to my Google drive every night. I guess it would be nice if I could do the same thing to my sky drive, especially since I have around 50GB of storage with my Sky Drive and only around 15GB of storage with my Google drive.
