Microsoft’s trying to save the Xbox
In theory, the Xbox One was an improvement on everything fans loved about the Xbox 360: a more powerful Kinect, new hardware that merged the console with your cable box, and lots of talk about the cloud. Microsoft only forgot one thing: the games. During the hour-long kick-off presentation, six minutes were allotted to new game announcements.
I love that, sometime in the past, oh, ten years or so, Microsoft went from the face of Corporate Evil to the underdog of the technology game – still making big mistakes, but also doing a lot of things that people like. Weird transition, to say the least.
