This is exactly how I feel, and I'm depressed about it because I've been an Xbox supporter since day one 12 years ago.

Had they reversed the script, the feeling could have been a great gaming console, with a bonus of cool TV features. Instead, its the entertainment box that just happens to play games.
100% agree but, I also believe they will continue the TV push at E3. I'm sure they will show plenty of games but they aren't going to let up on the TV angle either.
Taking a cue from that video, I think it will go something like this: games, games, games, games, games, TV, TV, TV, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, Kinect, games, games, games, TV.
They've done nothing but shove Kinect down our throats for the past 2 years at E3 so I have little doubt that it will be any different this year. My interests in Kinect died about 2 weeks after I bought it at launch, when I realized the only thing I was ever doing with it was dusting it off. I just have zero interest in talking to my TV (have never used Siri on my iPhone or iPad either), waving my hands at my TV or getting off the couch to play video games.

Exactly! If the mainstream consumer was willing to pay more for TV enhancement products then GoogleTV, Roku and AppleTV devices would not be so cheap. These products aren't cheap because the companies are being nice, it's what people are willing to pay. Plus, the mainstream consumer is not going to shop for a TV product in the games section of Best Buy, where the Xbone will live.
The only thing that is even more of a waste of time on the internet then forums, are petitions.Edited by rolltide1017 - 5/28/13 at 7:42am
