    I wonder if the HDMI in will work properly with DirecTV tuners and DVR's. If so, unless Sony shows me something nearly as impressive with its PS then MS may have nailed it.

    The lack of backwards compatibility will make me sit on the sidelines till a full slate of decent games are released. The nausea inducing interface doesn't help either.

    Pretty underwhelming really and probably will not be compatible with DirecTV. Hopefully I'll be wrong about that. The XboxOne will also not play used games and this point also seems like a pretty big misstep. Perhaps this will simply be the lay of the land going forward as Sony has yet to confirm or deny their plans on that front.

    Will go with the PS4 since I already own a PS Vita and am pretty excited about their compatibility. Can't wait to see what E3 will bring about.

    Both Microsoft and Sony went this route. With the complete architecture redesign, it's not a surprise.

    Where are you seeing that they will not let you play used games? That is a flat out lie.

    I'll give the benefit of the doubt and assume that you are basing your comment about used games on the recent Wired article. However, Microsoft has stated that is not the case, that the Xbox One WILL support used games as referenced here and here as well as in Microsofts own Q&A page for the Xbox One.

    Also, Wired updated its "original feature noting that Microsoft contacted them to clarify a plan is in place for used games, but did not detail it. One of Microsoft's official Xbox Support twitter accounts says there are in fact "no fees" associated with used games and the Wired feature is incorrect." Wired's updated article still makes mention of a fee.

    The details on how Xbox One deals with used games are sketchy at the moment with Microsoft saying they will be supported but it will be different than in the current and previous Gen consoles.

    I could care less about the games, but I may get one to supplement the ROKU and ATV. Just to try something different. ron

    Looks like DirecTV is working with Xbox/Microsoft. looking at this http://news.xbox.com/2013/09/ent-xbox-one-smartglass. Those are DirecTV channel # locations if I am not mistaken. Now if Smart Glass can work as well as they say in the article this could/would be very cool.
