    Maybe you don't, but Madden NFL is the NFL's second-highest source of revenue, behind only clothing sales.

    Next up is Microsoft Studios.

    And here's Forza 5, of course.

    Yeah, but how many people who buy Madden NFL are watching this live?

    Does anyone else suspect that MS strategically placed fake cheerers in the audience? Or am I being cynical?

    Quantum Break? What, we're back to FMV games like Dragon's Lair now?

    That is really awesome, but it's not a game. A Halo TV series has as much to do with the Xbox One as the Wii U.

    Yes you heard right.. i was wondering what's up with a TV Exec talking about Halo when the bomb dropped :techman:

    The new Xbox has moved past simple gaming console.. MS wants it to be your living room entertainment center that includes everything from gaming to TV and having these capabilities it's expected they'll talk at length about it.

    Why?

    As long as they don't skim on the gaming part i don't care. My 360 can do much stuff besides playing games yet i've rarely used any of the other features.

    If it's done well and i can get some use out of it i'm all for it.

    Edit:

    Interview after the Presentation officially confirms it from the Xbox boss himself.. no forced online connection to play non-multiplayer games!

    That presentation seemed to be targeted mainly at the "bro gamer" demographic. It's not necessarily indicative of what the Xbox One will be like, but I definitely got a better vibe from the PS4 reveal.
