So they had the big Xbox reveal today. I’d like to take some time to summarise my thoughts on new things that I learnt about the new Xbox, ignoring the stuff that we can just take for granted (ie we can assume specs are better, it will have TV stuff, Kinect and of course major franchise games).
- It will be called the Xbox One. That is a really dumb name when you’ve already got Xbox and Xbox 360 but whatever. Least it doesn’t sound as ridiculous as the Wii U.
- It will indeed have Blu Ray. Wasn’t 100% on this, although based on Twitter this wasn’t news. That said, I’ve already got a PS3 so doesn’t affect me.
So there you have it. Aside from the stuff we already would have expected as a given, they have announced, err… nothing.
