today is the reveal of the new xbox, dubbed the xbox one. they were live-tweeting the event at the PA report. here are the bullet points you’ll need to know to “stay in the game”

  • no one on stage for the announcement was charismatic
  • a thing lowered from the ceiling and received scattered, awkward applause
  • one presenter used a catchphrase twice that was immediately sidestepped for the rest of the show
  • an exciting teleconference moment was marred by the fact that on-stage video calls are always slow
  • people will demand 100% reverse compatibility but only 0.05% of the public will actually use it
