Other than Microsoft's announcement of their imminent and horrible demise their newest system, the XBOX DUMB ONE, there was another surprise awaiting this morning: a sneak peek into the newest Marvel Animated Series coming to Disney XD. Officially premiering in June, Marvel has put the premiere episode on iTunes to drum up interest. As you can tell, it's all about Marvel's latest cash cow, those goofy bastards in the brightly colored costumes who come together when they don't have anything better to do. Or as Johnny Casual would say: Those guys from the movies. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYf0LhvCbtk[/youtube] Well, it looks like that's the audience Marvel ...
So, as you may have heard, Microsoft revealed it's system for the next generation of consoles earlier in the week during its long awaited press conference.

Well kiddies, I made it back safe and sound from the hellish but extremely fun Pax East 2013.

Other than Microsoft’s announcement of their
imminent and horrible demise their newest system, the XBOX DUMB ONE, there was another surprise awaiting this morning: a sneak peek into the newest Marvel Animated Series coming to Disney XD. Officially premiering in June, Marvel has put the premiere episode on iTunes to drum up interest.
As you can tell, it’s all about Marvel’s latest cash cow, those goofy bastards in the brightly colored costumes who come together when they don’t have anything better to do. Or as Johnny Casual would say: Those guys from the movies.
Well, it looks like that’s the audience Marvel is after with this new re-invention, Avengers Assemble. Unlike it’s more nerd-friendly predecessor, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, this show has a cast that any movie viewing kid will recognize…plus The Falcon (gotta get that diversity hire). It has more good guys fighting bad guys and less episodes to beat up said bad guy. Man of Action are executively producing this, seeing as they’re the go to guys for marketing happy action shows (Re: Ben 10) This is so kid friendly that kids would rather eat this up then the latest XBOX. That’s what Head of Marvel Television Jeph loeb (Yes! THAT Jeph Loeb) implies anyways. I mean nothing can ever be as bad as that presentation….right?
Oh god NO. This is just as bad. JUST AS BAD.
So, as you may have heard, Microsoft revealed it’s system for the next generation of consoles earlier in the week during its long awaited press conference. If you missed it, Youtube user Darkbeatdk was kind enough to post a pretty spot-on highlight reel.
As you can see, practically NONE of the controversial questions or rumors were addressed, and aside from sports, Forza, Call of Duty, and a vague teaser trailer for a new title Quantum Break, gaming was largely ignored with the sentiment “You’ll see it at E3″.
But the news and details (though unfortunately NOT the games) outside of dashboards, Kinects and TV have slowly slipped from the tight lips of Microsoft reps over the week, and I’m sorry to report that Xbox fans probably aren’t going to like the majority of what they hear. Here’s a quick compilation of the details concerning the ONE that Microsoft happened to leave out of the conference:
XBOX ONE will:
- Not be backwards compatible with 360 games
- Currently is not compatible with 360 peripherals
- Is not an ‘always online’ console, but will require a connection to the internet at a certain interval (one rep mentioning once every 24 hours).
- Require the new Kinect to be connected to the console to operate at all
- All games will be installed directly to the harddrive, and not require a disc in the tray after installation.
- As such, all installations will be tied to a single user’s account, and additional installs to other users will require a paid fee of an undisclosed amount. (as claimed by Microsoft’s Phil Harrison)
- For now, TV integration is only going to be available in the US.
- Come equipped with a 500GB, non-replacable harddrive.
Microsoft is disclaiming used game fee and online connection requirement as ‘possible scenarios’. I can see why they wouldn’t want to go into this in the conference. What’s your reaction to the conference and subsequent news concerning the ONE? Let us know in the comments!

Here is an early WIP rendition of the River King Casino stage music, direct from Michiru Yamane!
This version features the first take on the stage’s melody. Now that the melody has been established, she’ll begin layering in other instruments. The track isn’t even completed and it sounds amazing. Can’t wait to hear the finished product!
