I know of two people already who fit this. Only games they play are mobile, they wanted Xbox Fitness, Netflix and one of them actually thought it was a DVR (but is keeping it anyway after finding out it isn't). Casuals and non-gamers aren't the ones who have a poor view of Xbone, for now they mostly don't know about it or don't care to pay $500 for the features.

Clearly, that's what Microsoft is going for -- they want this thing to sell not just to gamers, but to non-gamers as well.

I think the Kinect voice commands need to improve significantly and the cost has to come down mightily (under $300) for that to happen. Plus they need to get more content companies on board and release some quality original programming outside of a Halo show.

In other words, I could see it happening maybe 3-4 years down the line.


It IS appealing to non-gamers.

Who would buy a $500 DVR....

Where are you from? I need to make sure I never go there.
