The lights are on
Microsoft has promised a lot with the Xbox One, and this new video give us a good look at some of the console's new features.
In this video, you'll hear about how Microsoft is leveraging cloud computing and Kinect in the new system. You can also see how SmartGlass is being used in Dead Rising 3 and Ryse.

Our Take:While we'll have to see whether Kinect and SmartGlass ever become more than novelties (though actually getting mission phone calls on your real phone in Dead Rising 3 is ingenious), I do think the cloud power that developer's can access - along with the news of dedicated servers for multiplayer which was also announced today - could make the Xbox One a very formidable development platform.

I just want to play games on my console, don't really care about the rest. That's why I chose PS4, SONY all the way, Microsoft...perhaps later when Halo comes out.
XBOX one is that you can't upgrade the hard drive like on 360. I know I can hook up a flippin' huge hard drive externally, but it just bugs me.
