Why can't we have both? The Xbox One is the all in one set top box. It delivers the best of both worlds. TV, movies, gaming. There's something for everyone on the One.
This is really what I'm banking on.

Because I buy video game consoles for video games. Anything else is a bonus. Has the Xbox gotten better since they focused more on other forms on entertainment? I personally don't feel like it has.

They have invested $1bil in first party gaming already. They are throwing cash at just about every aspect of the platform. Gaming isn't the slightest bit starved for funds on X1.
To be fair they said that about games in general. They weren't just talking first party. If it is going to be like the 360 the exclusives will dry up thanks to their less then impressive 1st party studios.

Yup, I agree. I don't see people complaining about a lack of vision on the Playstation even though Sony also makes movies.

Xbox has continued to improve night and day since it was released in 2005, and it wasn't at the expense of new TV/video related features.

I see no reason why Microsoft can't have a TV division in their entertainment group.

Not sure why they need to pour more resource on TV shows. I mean, why not more games? We got like thousands of TV shows available right now, and the last thing we need is MS produced TV shows. Anyone remember Viva Pinata show?

My son watched all of the Viva Pinata's. There must be good revenue in Television, otherwise they wouldn't do it.

People talk about more games but fail to notice that the 360 has been putting out games on a pretty regular basis. Almost every time I check On Demand, a new game is up, usually at about 35 or 40 bucks too.
