    Edit: meh, "Later this year."... Was hoping for a release date, but I guess they can't let us look up their skirt, this close to E3.

    I'm interested, not so much for the gaming, but for the rest of it. Sure, some games I would probably get for it, but I don't really believe in paying 60€ for a game that barely lasts 20 hours. It would nicely fulfill my Microsoft ecosystem (Win 8, Surface, WP8) and get me a bluray player at the same time.

    That said, a lot of the stuff will likely never be of any use here in Finland like the sports integrations (dont even watch sports, though) etc..

    Depends on the price of the cheaper version that has the mandatory 2 year xbox gold thing, I might get that one, but not really interested in sinking a lot of money into a glorified media player.

    I am not into gaming and the Ps3 does everything else I need, so no.

    Still not sure between PS4 or Xbox One. I've been with Playstation since the beginning but since getting my windows phone with the Xbox tile, I might switch to have further integration.

    I am for sure.

    If I can for release day, I will. These consoles are just so hard to get at launch.

    I really don't care about the gaming aspect since I only do PC games (nothing worse than a game controller, as far as I'm concerned). It's all the other aspects that attract me. The question I have--and this is a deal-breaker for me--with the TV aspects work with a sat? I refuse to give up Dish Network for cable TV, period. So, if Xbox One can work with whatever TV feed and have the guide work, then I'm sold on this puppy.

    I'm definitely going to get One!

    I've had the first 2 Xboxes and this looks like it'll be my next. Not sure why but I expected it to be a little thinner.

    Heck yeah! I love the all-in-one entertainment system. Especially love that now I can watch live TV through the Xbox One. I'll probably be at the launch, but if that's too ridiculous then I'll get one shortly after launch.

    I thought I was finished with game consoles... too old of a man and not time for such... (27 years young, lol).

    The xbox one is really a full entertainment device. It is a winner and I will be getting one! I love the fun integrated ecosystem that Microsoft is creating.

    I also expected it to be something totally else, now it just looks a like a big DVR. That said, I dont think making a console really small really has any benefits, probably more downsides than anything else. These are not really mobile devices anyways-

    Count me in and as I was just saying on Facebook the PS4 doesn't stand a fighting chance.

    Probably have to sell the 360 to keep the wife happy if I get one. PS never did anything for me.
