Everyone knows it plays bloody games who cares how the console looks playing em cus it isnt going get any better, they'll come to that at some point closer to but there showing off other things that the xbox can do to try catch a wider portion of people into buying it. Showing off the kinect to show how easy it is to use it for xbox on, skyping your friend using your voice having the NFL on with statistics running at the sides and bottom. etc your not going to be playing the xbox constantly at games for the next 10 years so its showing what else it can offer to entice people into buying it.

So the first commercial matches the reveal then. Games are an afterthought on the xbox one and it's all about tv and sports.


See unlike on these forums, people in the real world aren't going to forget that the Xbox is about games. Showing commercials like this during NFL games is a great way to show off new and relevant functionality that anyone watching an NFL game might be interested in.

Sometimes people just don't get it...

 

I personally hate Madden... But Madden sells MILLIONS of copies every year on the Xbox Platform...  And those same people are REAL NFL JUNKIES...  So that means, there is a chance that 25-40 million Xbox One's, will be sold to Madden/NFL Junkies.... Oh and by the way... Those same JUNKIES LOVE FANTASY FOOTBALL as well....

 

"Xbox Play Madden"... Oh the game is on... "Xbox turn to CBS"... someone on fantasy team scores (highlight pops up on the side of the tv while your watching the game)... Xbox Sky John Doe... Friend pops up on screen trash talk a tad bit... Commercial... Xbox Play Madden...  

 

That little scenario above is worth $$$-Millions alone...  And if new features are implemented into that... well lets just say the $400 investment, can probably earn back 2x-3x more loot...

 

Has anyone not learned what an ecosystem does in the Tech world... My brother, sis-in-law-, nieces and nephews, refuse to leave i-world (iPod,Pad,Phone) because of the $$$ they have invested into that world... 

 

My friends, family, and myself, are not leaving Xbox because of the loot I have invested into the Xbox ecosystem... The above scenario also works for MILLIONS of AMERICAN (I hate Madden, but the rest is a WANT for me)...  

 

Xbox is becoming a one true connected ecosystem.  Not a broken experience.

If this is actually from Kaz Hirai, then wow....  it comes off as "Yeah... well.... You're ugly!  And your mom is too!"  It just comes off as a very defensive statement, trying to be funny but not quite making it.  There's much less insulting comparisons than to a professional athlete, no matter what country the sport's from.

You do realize that the 'people in the real world' you speak of are the same people who struggled to figure out the wii u was a new console right? What makes you think they'll suddenly be more intelligent when it comes to the xbox one and know that this is a new gaming machine when all they're being shown is sports and skype?

When MOST see Xbox... they see the CoD, Halo, Madden, Box... All video games... and people know that they are all video games...

 

People see the name Nintendo (no matter if hand held or console) they know its the Mario Box... and people just thought that the Wii-U was an add on to the video game console... so they still knew that it was associated with gaming...

Why cant we just accept this as one commercial targeted at NFL fans?  Why does this need to become a general attack on the X1's focus?

 

It's like people don't want them to advertise to anyone but gamers and advertise nothing but gaming. This one seemed to do a good job laying out what the X1 can offer NFL fans. Good for those NFL fans.

 

Why can't it be both?  This is a ridiculous argument in my opinion.  If ALL of the X1 commercials were this, then your on to something, but that's very unlikely to be true.

Unfortunately some members here are so tunnel visioned with their hate they decide to share it as much as possible, not understanding that we really couldn't give a **** what they think. Most of their inaccuracies make me cringe but hell, what can we do but correct them, shrug and get on with discussing the XB1 like mature chaps :)

/facepalm
By your logic, people have no chance of figuring out new game consoles.
XB1: This must be Xbox 360 because it plays CoD
PS4: This must be PS3 because it plays CoD
