So Microsoft admits the Xbox One isn't geared primarily toward gamers.

It seems they're dropping support for hardcore and are pandering to casuals now.

I must be crazy but it doesn't say what you said anywhere in the article. You going insane? Or are you just making up things for fun?

What? I read the link and it says it supports more than games. Not that its gearing towards casuals over hardcore gamers at all. What exactly makes someone casual or hardcore anyways?

You noticed the same thing as me, but beat me to it :)

The summary that TC gave for this article almost makes me wonder if he even read it?

They mentioned this before E3 came out, that it was going to be a multimedia device that could run games.

Only on the X1 boards could a console having more features be a bad thing. So you would actually prefer having less options?

Yet it still has the best games so far.

The original Xbox and the 360 were both great gaming consoles, it was always going to be tough following those two with the way all the handhelds, ipads etc are becoming a "must have" and "do everything" accessory.
