After widespread ridicule and lowered sales, Microsoft dropped the Kinect and took the TV department to the back of the shed. I'm asking because the "All In One" title almost seems like a misnomer with MS's refocus on games instead of multimedia.

There are going to be updates to the TV part come September, the ability to stream TV from your Xbox to tablets and smartphones through smartglass I believe.

Not understanding how they took the TV department to the back of the shed...


Also, no they aren't going to change the name of the Xbox one, that would be dumb.

Yeah I said the same exact thing before! But from the looks of that article claiming xbox is making another console, i'd say they're straight up remaking this gen's xbox. Probably with more power and a new name.
They should call it xbox origami. And for the love of god, do not forget backwards compatability.

I still think Infinity was a great name that gave off the same message without sounding like a step back. Like infinite possibilities on the console.

I dare say Xbox Beyond was a decent name for it.

It wasn't even that. Xbox One just sounds flat. Or just makes me think of Pepsi One.
