I'm inclined to agree with him. Perhaps you are just not a PC gamer and these seem like new features to you.
I am a PC gamer. it doesn't make his points any more valid.
cloud is not the internet. no PC game (with one exception has used the "cloud" yet. that exception is Eve. Steam has used the cloud to some degree, but that's the same degree that the 360 already does and is just a small part of the cloud.
His Kinect comment is just stupid from the NSA idiocy to comparing it to a webcam and microphone, not even worth getting into. obvious trollbait.
Sure you can record with fraps. of course it sucks a solid chunk of performance out of the game. MS CONTINUOUSLY record all the time, you can at any time save the last 5 minutes of gameplay, or start a manual recording from now on forward. without performance impact. The console/game will also automatically save recordings of awesome stuff you do in the game. not only that, but they also automatically upload it to the internet for you. no encoding, no uploading no converting none of all that mess. Welcome to console gaming, it just works.
Never mind I couldn't care less about recording on either console or PC. and I hate when people insist on making tutorials, guides or hints as youtube videos instead of a short text article that is easier to understand and gets right to the point with a couple of screenshots if necessary.
I'm guessing the Nice UI comment is a hidden trollbait comment about his dislike for windows 8. has no impact either here nor there. but it does have a nice GUI allowing you to switch quickly and fluently between movies, tv and gaming among other things.
