View author's profile

Phil Spencer has promised a number of new television show announcements for Xbox One.

Speaking to Bloomberg at the Tokyo Game Show, the head of Microsoft Studios revealed that the company has more projects planned than the Halo show announced during the Xbox One’s unveiling.

"They have literally hundreds of ideas that they are incubating right now," he said. "We will have some new announcement for TV shows coming pretty soon."

Beyond that, Spencer also promised that more international sports - not just the NFL content recently touted - will be the recipient of interactive apps. "We believe sports is a very interesting category globally," he said.

TV, TV, TV, sports, TV. Sports.

Here come more complainers about how they don't care about anything but the games. Good for you, there will be plenty of games and loads of exclusives. There are other features though that matter to some people and just because you're not one of them, doesn't mean you need to shit all over the people that do.

In my opinion, anything that can set these consoles apart is good business sense. You're not forced into anything but playing games so chill.

When you get a new computer do you say "Oh my god, I can't believe they put Paint on this computer and a calculator too? WTF?" You can still browse your porn and play your games and the extra shit on your computer is just there, you don't have to use it.

In a generation when consoles are more like computers than ever, you think people would understand this concept...

Blimey I can't stand people who say that the xbox or PS4 shouldn't have TV/Streaming, I look at my friends list and It's constantly just Netflix/Lovefilm/Sky watchers with the occasional game - The same as myself, the MORE this console does the better, and that includes TV, Films & Music.

@11 I agree, people should realise that they need less marketing on game playing functions as its a game console (We all know this). So why say 'hey guess what our console does, plays games derp', they might as well say to people guess what else we offer as well as gaming.

Why does everyone have to make a big deal out of this?? You don't need them then just shutup and don't use them! But for some people, like me, having the tv aspect is good because I use them a lot and o for me these things are good to hear.

Basically, not interested then don't look because you all know that the xbox one can play the games we all have come to know and love so stop kicking up a fuss.

Sorry for the rant lol

@9 Well I look at it like this, the tv feature and sport feature while being awesome for some these feature will not even work for alot of us out of the box. Even the Kinect will only have voice control in 5 countries on launch & we speak English in New Zealand. As far as sport and tv goes I am pretty sure that will not even come to my country & if it does it will be in a few years.

Why should we pay for a unit that can do all these thing that we can't use, we pay the same if not more for the console than the US. All I ask is to be given the same "experience" as others where possible without breaching copyright.

As much as I won't end up using these features much, it is hard to disagree with #18.

I don't use every feature on my phone, but that doesn't stop me enjoying the features I do use.

Still, people are never satisfied, & are never more likely to voice their discontent than on an internet forum. & here we are.

As it seems you sound like you could do better I look forward to your attemp. Their console is what it is, nobody has said its JUST a games console. I look forward to you buying a playstation or something and moaning about rubbish on some other site

@21 a bit of topic but I see what you are saying. Well actually we have 4G providers and only really just got 4G phones so not sure what your point is.

I have just bought a LTE-A Korean Samsung s4 which has 4G advanced which I can't use in my country, my choice. With the Xbox one they just haven't given us the tv,sport or voice function with was microsofts choice. We have tv,sport & use our voices here but if you buy something with a feature on it knowing you can't use it that is your choice.

Hope you can understand where I am coming from, basically we just haven't been given the choice by Microsoft, just haven't been given the features at all.

i don't mind if a console does other things.however it is first off a gaming console. if i actually wanted to watch sports [spoiler-i won't], i should have to go look for front page/dashboard blade/ whatever shouldn't be a tiny play button and a ton of sports ads.

if i could customize how this looks then we're all solid.

If you don't like the FREE services you're receiving, then don't buy the console. If you strictly want to play games, either stick with your 360/PS3 (because there is gonna be 3 more years of games support), or be like me and buy an older generation console as well for a whole lot cheaper.

I'm going to love my "XboxP61".You know at some point, there has to be a game or two for it right?....No!?all "it" has is just adverts, apps, Kinect and move!!??That's not what I bought it for!!!

o_O Guys, you do realize this stuff would have been on systems made in the 80's, if technology allowed.Ask yourself this, "why did the NES have a control port on the bottom"?Because even then those guys were looking to expand what a game system could do and offer.

What we have now, is a collimation of what we would have had then.Memory expansion for the N64,CD for Genesis and MS's Kinect(Lets not forget their online game store and LIVE itself) are how businesses grow.We as consumers can only benefit.

Yeah,some of the stuff they add is pure SHIT but as long as you can play games...should anything else matter?

Why are so many of you so stupid?

"If you don't like the FREE services you're receiving, then don't buy the console."
It isn't "free" when the console costs $500 and Live costs another $60 a year. In fact, if it didn't have all these worthless "features" maybe the Xbox One would have a reasonable price tag.

"Yeah, well, this isn't the 90's, grandpa. The Xbox One should have built in TV, sports packages, voice/motion control, toaster, and a bong."
I don't want my video game console to be a fucking Swiss army knife if it doesn't function well as a video game console. Look at the progression of the dashboard. I think everyone can agree that it has gotten worse and worse with every update because they keep adding shit and pushing games into the corner. Maybe if they focused on it being a gaming console we wouldn't have optical readers that stop working properly after a year. Maybe they could focus on connectivity issues. Maybe the console wouldn't be the size of a microwave. Maybe the games could run/look better. We are potentially sacrificing all of this for services that the Xbox does an inferior job of delivering. This is all because the average person has no standard of quality.

"Oh my god, I can't believe they put Paint on this computer and a calculator too? WTF?"
I actually use Paint and Calculator. The first thing I did when I got my computer is delete all of the shit I didn't want, which I can't do on the Xbox.

I wonder if you'll need a tv license to run the xbox one generally, or if it'll just be for the service's, that wont affect anyone other then students anyway tbh, I'd guess you'd just need the license for using the service's, but just a penny or you're thoughts.

Microsoft realised what they did with the announcement, shifted the focus to gaming, that this is a side thing for the console, so, go all out now, the time's past where it'd be an issue, now it's time to show off this sort of thing, hell, give us a nice trailer for this halo series sometime soon.

The people moaning about this back seated feature at this point need to get their heads out of their assess. It's just the step up from what the console's currently do. The people moaning about this at this point are the ones who should flat out be ignored by everyone, because they're moaning for moaning's sake.

They are entrainment systems. Everyone at the end started going them video game systems. Get your information right guys. Before the 1980's they were called video game systems but then the boy cot come and no one wanted anything that was called a video game system because they were making bad games all the time. So, they had to start calling the NES an entrainment system. So, at the end they are really entrainment systems. Now that ends the listen of the histery of gaming.

Again," with everything Xbone has done thus far. I still see many of you on here continue to take up for it. Now that's " QUOT-"Fucking pathetic"
@31 you state that in 98 & prior consoles were considered to be toys?
BS! Maybe that's what your parents called them.
They were Gaming machines & now Micro$oft wants to make it into something we already have by other devices that are the best at what they do.
Really do you think it will be better to surf the Net on your PC or Xbone?
How will it compete with your smartphone one on one huh? Get the point I'm making yet???
APP playing = cheaply made arcade games for high profit.(Like Judgment was)
Massively-Multiplayer-Online also known as MMO's are another way to suck money out of consumers with monthly subscriptions & Micro-transactions.
I will not support any App, or games that choose to go down this raping of the consumer's pocket & no-one else should either.
MMO's & MT's paved the way for the DRM policy we saw Xbone try at E3.
Anyone that continues to support MMO's & MT'S in the future are contributing to DRM's return in full force!
That is when I quit playing games altogether & I'm not alone.

@38 - You will, yes. The licence covers all sorts of things now. Provided you can watch TV on it, you have to have a licence.

@34 - The apps are only available to people that cough up for Gold, even the subscription-only apps and F2P games.

@41, why don't you come over here and take a seat? You might need to sit down.

Now, you might not of realised this yet, but MMO's are going to be the future of gaming. Everything in gaming is getting bigger and better, we have shooters that hold thousands of people in a single game, massive fantasy worlds filled to the brim with content and players.

A single MMO is worth a singular investment because of the required upkeep on servers to keep those sorts of games running would be 'impossible' on copy sales alone, especially if the game was going to then continually bring out new content. World of Warcraft is a prime example here, the entire world was re-moddled and generally altered a few years back, there where seasonal things, constant streams of new content, many other mmo's have done similar things, a subscription for a good mmo can be very easily justified.
For something like elder scrolls online, from what's been shown so far, it doesn't seem worth the cost at all, that may change, but things don't look good for it so far.

There will always be small scale games, always be little or very well story driven single player adventure's, but MMO's are becoming more feasible to console audience's, and the next steps up in technology will lead to all kinds of possibility's (VR) that people have looked for and wished for, for decades.

An MMO only last's as long as it's server's are kept up, true, but you buy into that MMO accepting that fact. It's not plastered on every game or the device, just the one game. Micro-transactions are best suited to MMO games when put in right, provided it doesn't give players stupid advantage's.

You're currently drawing lines between dots that are separated by walls.

@#7 All the extra stuff cranks up the price. You are a fool to think that this is all just an added bonus and costs us nothing. As someone that is not interested in another DVR sitting on my shelf, I want a video game console and pay for exactly that. Just the price tag of $500 alone means I am paying for extra stuff like all this TV integrating bs. One of the main reasons I have lost interest in Xbone long time ago.
