"Consider the game officially changed. With all your favorite Windows 8 apps able to be run on and synced to your Xbox One, now your phone, desktop, tablet and TV can all give you a unified web and entertainment experience."

AFAIK, this has been hinted at but not publicly confirmed. Great news! Adds XB1 owners to a huge customer base for developers, no need to develop just for a console or port. Imagine the possibilities with snapping.

So it's gonna do what my TV and my computer already do far better, and spy on me too?

Exhibit A of the innovative mind of trolls and their constant need for reassurance.

Weather app is pretty good.

Anyways, I like it. I likeWindows 8. I don't use the metro that much, but when I do it's ok.

This is pretty huge... making me regret going back to Android :/

You can whine and moan about Windows 8 all you want, but imagine if Wii U or PS4 got access to the top 10,000 apps of iOS or Android... of course that's a huge value-added deal. I'm not saying you or I have to use them, but that is a lot of utlity.

As a Windows 8 user let me tell everyone that there isn't a single good windows 8 app yet so this isn't anything to get excited about. Windows 8 is just another example of how MS products are going down the crapper...
