    I am not much of a gamer, but was recently given a PS3 and enjoy the few games I have and the other entertainment available (Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc). With all of the talk that the next XBOX would replace your cable box, I was hoping that it would also handle DVR duties. While my Tivo has been serviceable, I was hoping for something that would shakeup the TV Box industry. Not happening yet, and certainly not with just a 500GB drive. Might still pick it up, but not anywhere close to launch day.

    I used to be a PC gamer turned iOS gamer, but I'm interested to get back on the big screen without the hassle of having to upgrade GPU every now and then,

    So yeah, XBox One for me

    Had a 360 with kinect since my ps2 broke a year ago, was impressed with what you can do on it. But i'm not a console gamer, the only thing the 360 gets used for is Windows Media Center extender to watch TV shows and movies that I download (Legally)

    If the XBox One does this, and works through my TV box then I think i'll have to go get one :)

    Definitely a launch day purchase for me.

    Have also had a thought and I do hope it works. It's something that was hinted at in the launch but not detailed fully.

    With all the cloud capabilities of this new generation, what if signing in to xbox one works the same as windows 8? As in can I log on to any windows 8 device with my log in and it pulls in my homescreen? If a friend comes round for a bit of multiplayer will the Kinect recognise him and his XBL profile and instantly side load all his preferences and his saves for the game so there isn't any setup involved for him to play on the game and any achievements he earns while playing go directly to his profile.

    This already works on Xbox 360 if you make your saves to the cloud. Which is why im hoping that with the extended Kinect functionality and all those extra servers they are adding to handle all the data that my friend could sit down next to me, give the xbox a command and it instantly logs him in as player two and pulls in all his save data for all the games we share.

    I will be waiting at GAME until midnight launch like always. I will also book a week off work and buy loads of alcohol. Alcohol + XBOX One = a good time

    Patiently waiting...

    Just been down to pre order mine, first in Chelmsford to pre order at my local GAME :P

    I'll be getting Forza 5, the new Remedy game, Watch Dogs, Battlefield 4, Assassin's Creed 4 and the new Call of Duty.

    Not to mention any other new launch titles they announce at E3 that tickle me.

    I've always had an Xbox but I'm considering switching to PS now! Will wait till E3 and then I'll decide but won't get one straight away, knowing MS and Sony they'll release a different version...hoping MS release a a slim version!

    Ill try to get ONE at release day "later this year" :)
    The PS4 is also very interesting, but the native integration of facebook and other social media platform scared me a little bit off.
    Right now the ONE is the best fit for my livingroom media setup and finally i can put the PS3 as Bluray player to sleep :)

    I'm likely to get the ps4. It's controller preference. However, I'll have to see which console my buddies get. I could go Xbox but it's too early to determine right now. We'll see after E3.

    2 please, as well as 2 xBox 2's. You know the non-gaming BD & entertainment streaming box that's coming shortly after. That way I can replace my aging but still working DMA2200's.

    It depends on a couple of things. I probably won't get one if each member of my family needs to purchase a license (or disc) to play a game and if there is no offline use. My internets are unreliable at times. They like to stop working Friday evenings after the service techs go home for the weekend. Besides, if I'm playing a single player game why do I need interenet connect?

    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.
    This is how I feel. I might be interested in some of the games but at this point I am interested because it fits so many needs in my living room. The gaming is a bonus. I'll see if E3 brings up anything that piques my interest. Watchdogs looks kinda cool, but other than that I'm clueless... It's been awhile since I was into gaming

    He makes some very good points. I agree that they are completely wrong in charging a separate fee for a second hand game. If you copy it to your hard drive then yeah, charge a fee, they shouldn't allow rampant piracy, but if you don't and you play from the disc, then there should be no fee. How are they going to handle rentals? If the fee is only charged when copying the game and playing from the hard drive then I agree with Microsoft's method.

    I am very intrigued. I hope it is as fast and snappy as mentioned yesterday. I knew it would not be backwards compatible, but I was still hoping for a limited amount or the XBLA titles to transfer. It was dream but I already have a Wii-u, ps3, and 360, and was hoping I could replace the 360 with the One like I did with the Wii. Unfortunatly I cannot so that is my only hesitation.
