Yesterday's announcement by Microsoft regarding Xbox One sent shockwaves throughout the gaming world. Websites ran article after article talking about the next great system from Seattle. But what did gamers think about it all?
Here are just a few of the tweets being posted by gamers on Twitter regarding the new Xbox system. Some are good, some are bad. What does seem to be consistent is how much of an impact the announcement made in regards to next-gen gaming.
MS said cloud can be used to enhance computation in games. Also "not focusing on graphical power". Maybe to force online only? #XboxOne

The #XboxOne has to be the worst damn name i've ever heard. I would have to try pretty hard to make a name that's worse...

The most useful feature on the #XboxOne is that you can tell it to go to Internet explorer, open eBay and sell itself.

#xboxone had you not incorporated game-locks, constant internet, & kinect required: I would have bought your product. Bad move. Dissapointed

I really love how the #XboxOne controller blends aspects of the 1st 3 Xbox controllers into it's design. Lots of love & thought went into it

Oh wait - no backward compatibility on #xboxone? I'll have to pass then.

Knowing that #XboxOne will have more features then JUST gaming makes me happy.
