    Impulse triggers? What are those?

    • DesmaX

      Oh, just checked a video here.
      That sounds pretty cool. I guess I could buy a Xone controller for my PC

      • Freud_Hater

        Oh, irony XD

  • Robbyfishersora

    I still wouldn’t buy one even if kinect is removed, MS absolutely will think other way to rip off consumer. I don’t know. Me just wait and see how it goes.

    • TheExile285

      may? lol

      • Robbyfishersora

        Should I say might instead? Sorry if I have bad spelling.

        • Ehren Rivers

          They’re implying that the “may” should be changed to “absolutely will”.

          • Superior Spider-Man

            and that is the joke.

          • Ehren Rivers

            …Yes, I understand that. I was explaining the joke to Robbyfishersora, who said they didn’t get it.

          • Superior Spider-Man

            Sorry, you misunderstood me. I was following up on your statement. It was a Simpsons reference.

          • Robbyfishersora

            Oh I see. My fault than.

          • Ehren Rivers

            Oh, no worries. It’s just a joke, after all, not a big deal if you didn’t get it at first. :)

    • whatinthewolrd

      But them stickers….

  • SwiftWind

    I’m more concerned about the exclusives/ the games than the actual hardware itself. And until Microsoft announces some sweet games that I just cannot live without/cannot buy on other consoles, I don’t think I’m going to buy one this gen.

    • Vash bane

      only thing for me might be only halo(don’t play many shooters) but that’s just one title like you said we will need to know more

  • xAKUM3TSUx

    They announced today that the headset will be included….good for the people who’r buying I guess. I just can’t seem to trust MS anymore. It’s a me thing and I DONT think anyone should follow my opinion. Kinect is another issue but I’ll ask my brother how it is when he gets his. Cant judge something I haven’t even tried yet.

  • Nice that they did an unboxing, but I still don’t want ONE.

        Now all we need is Regular Show’s Morticky and Rigby doing their famous “WHOOOOOOOOAAAAAH!” thing for the ending panel lol. Sorry, I just had to add that.

        • Musashi234

          Mordecai* lol

      • *Brofist*

        Nice XD

        • Syn

          *double Brofist*

      • Ronldbx6

        lol The Shot “Kinect-ed”

  • Freud_Hater

    Still won’t buy… unless some ground-breaking RPG comes out exclusively for it (Like Tales of Vesperia forced me to buy the 360) I’ll let you guys enjoy that one.

    • John Pena

      hahaha, I did the same thing. I also wont buy one until an exclusive epic rpg is released!!!

    • ZEROthefirst

      Still not worth $500+ for me, I just got the expansion on the PS3 and did my own shitty translation for the expanded story sections and read off English playthroughs on youtube for the rest.

    • fireguardiancoty

      I don’t think they’ll ever make that mistake again. Why put it on an expensive “system” no one wants when they could put it on something that people actually want that will make a lot more money for them?

  • RichyGaming

    My speakers not connected and I’m too lazy to put it on so from what I’ve seen, Xbox One’s got some sexy shit going on, dood. (I’m a Sony person btw), at this point people probably know what I’m gonna say next. And if you don’t, it’s that I should probably connect my speaker.

  • ShadowDivz

    I’d say shame at microsoft for having a “day one” achievement.
    But they also have TV achievements. So now it’s basically a limbo contest.
    “how low can you go?”

    • TheExile285


    • Now we need an achievement for eating doritos with mountain dew while kinect is on…

      • Godmars

        And it will know you’re eating/drinking stuff ;p

  • James Williams

    He just flings everything right out of the box!

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    damn setting the clock on that must be hell

  • School Idol Addict

    June 25 2013: Microsoft confirm Xbox One does not include a pack-in headset accessory.
    August 8 2013: Xbox One include a pack-in headset accessory.

    How many time now they said something and then changed what they were saying at a later date ???
    Just a headset isn’t a big deal, but they changed opinions to often in the last few months for me to be able to trust them

    • Bobby Jennings

      They’re trying to beat Sony since you know, theirs came with a headset.

      • Ted Griffin

        And a sticker don’t forget the sticker.

    • SMT

      i don’t know why, but i think it’s new marketing type.
      no for everything and then says yes just for you xD

  • Chaos_Knight

    Oh thank you for unboxing it for me. Now allow me to do the rest.

    *takes out sledgehammer*

  • TrannyMagic

    even though I cancelled my X1 order this is pretty nice to see them doing this. Won’t be getting any next gen console until I really want either but nothing blows my mind except for project spark.

  • Sorry, still not worthy

  • Aoshi00

    Nice to see Major Nelson again, wish they hadn’t gotten rid of Inside Xbox.. so just two USB ports in the back huh, would be convenient to have some in the front to plug in flash drives and such.. the controller looks pretty sweet, I’m actually more used to the 360 controller than Dualshock3.

    Pre-ordered both PS4 & Xbox One Day 1 edition from Amazon. Was happy to save sales tax which add up but Amz started charging sales tax for NJ since July *.*;;..

    • Mr_SP

      Well, there is the side USB for that… But if you’re like me, you’ve got two consoles side-by-side in a TV cabinet, and there might not be enough room for it. Not to mention plugging your controller into that port.

      More concerned about having *only* one USB up front. How, exactly, am I going to be expected to manage my controllers? Plug one in to charge, then switch it around?

      …Wait a minute. That’s a wireless controller… Where’s the charging cable!? How do you charge the controller?

      • Syn

        Its only meant for……….wait for it………… ONE. ^-^

      • Aoshi00

        Not sure if the XB1 uses battery for the controller like the 360. I charge all my controllers (dualshock3, 360, and 3DS/XL) w/ charge stands and never really charge while playing. I just like to have a USB port in the front to transfer music, video, and save files and such w/ a flash drive, the PS eye needed one too, and there’s the dongle for the keyboard and Sony headphones, so two on the Slim weren’t enough.. if it’s all the back it’s even more inconvenient. Both systems look pretty sleek and minimalistic.. would be nice to have a limited edition later.. I want Quantum Break, Dead Rising 3, & Crimson Dragon alrdy. I still hope there’s more interesting Jpn games to take advantage of it being region free..

  • Logan Moll

    I thought it didn’t come with a headset? That was a smart thing to change.

  • TheDarkEmpress

    Glad they showed me what’s in the box; I’ll never find out for myself as I will not be purchasing an Xbone, ever.

  • Ferrick

    lol and they said that there wasn’t going to be any power brick

  • Rocket D

    Well, ‘someone’ had to unbox it since a majority of gamer consumers won’t be. Xbox One needed an official unboxing meanwhile the PS4 will have a bunch of happy users doing it themselves on youtube…

  • Rohan Kishibe


  • DCBlackbird

    In the end I don’t care about the console or what space dimensional manipulative functions it has, I only want the games xboxone has a couple while ps4 has more….. I hope some of them end up on steam

  • Kei-chan

    Out of the box and into the trash!

  • Kaitou21

    Lol, still wont get it either way

  • Ted Griffin

    Oh my gosh a XBOX One sticker?!? I have to get one now… not >.>

  • Isaac Newton

    Then it means that I’m a “crab people”?

  • Dagobert

    I hate the fact that it still uses a power brick. Honestly those things are not alright, it’s annoying trying to shove it so it’s not noticeable. Also why does the new Kinect seem bigger than the current one? Shouldn’t it be smaller and look less like the power brick?

  • Mr_SP

    Wait… How do you charge the controller? Where’s the charging cable?! What, does it run on batteries, or hopes and dreams or something?

  • Vash bane

    did…did he just dis respect the box!!?

  • Darren

    I’ll just save everyone some time.

    • Hector Velar

      ooohhhh so thats what the One looks like… must say im dissapointed was hopping that flies were included. . :( ohhh and it does not comes with corn either :(

    • Niermyico

      Dang. The camera does add pounds on things.

    • Ronldbx6

      OMG, I smell it through the monitor :S

  • fireguardiancoty

    Why fix what’s not broken?

  • Yan Zhao

    CoD kids can enjoy this thing. Its the only people who’ll buy one lol.

  • hazelnut1112

    Don’t matter, Iwata did it first and did a better job at it.

  • doctorpope181

    Lol power brick

  • Niermyico

    I find it funny how he just pushes the box aside and hear the box hitting the ground as he continues on. lol

  • xxx128

    Obnoxious dude, looks like a desperate car dealer.

  • Tom

    Hmm, is it a good idea to pick up one on day1, don’t open and sell it in about 5-10 years? It might be a collectors’ item by that time.

    I don’t like videos where they toss away the box. That’s a beautiful box, show some respect!
