The lights are on
Game Informer visited Microsoft's campus weeks ago for an early look at the next Xbox console. The day after the company explained the Xbox One, we had some follow-up questions for the console's chief product officer Marc Whitten. Game Informer's senior features editor Matt Helgeson sat down with Whitten and received some further clarification on the new console's unique architecture, television implementation, operating systems, used game capabilities, the redesigned d-pad, and more.
Watch the video to learn all about the Xbox One from one of the system's lead designers.

I really like what they are trying to do. The TV is what we use most in our home and it makes sense that some company is trying to change the way we fundamentally interact with it because the current experience is cumbersome and completely out of line with the speed and context in which I access information on every other device in my life. Microsoft is doing something big here and I'm preordering. If you're arguing about the sheer cost of potentially owning it then that is a different story. I am rich by no means but I can afford to buy the current volume of games that I'm accustomed to and also a semi-expected $10 increase in next gen titles. If Live rises a few bucks too then I still don't care. I give Verizon almost $100 a month for my cell so $10-30 extra per year for Live is fine.
Anyone else notice how that dude kinda looks like Emperor Palpatine?
They have not yet lost me. I still want to see what comes next.
Good interview! I want to know more!
