Not sold on this at all. The conference was a snooze for me, but that's because I want games for my games console. Apart from the motion and voice sensor stuff, a lot of what they showed off is do-able on a PC or among various devices at home anyway. It just underwhelmed me. The sports stuff is cool, but alienates the European audience because the NFL stuff is a niche thing here. Call of Duty and EA Sports deals are cool, but again, nothing ground-breaking to me.

That said, this felt like just a rush show before E3, so I'm hoping E3 will make me go 'INNNNNTERESTING!'. I won't be buying either of these at launch, but right now, Sony seems a step ahead in presentation.

Coming from someone who doesn't own and never has owned a smartphone, yes

All I use my phone for is texting and calling, so if the Xbox could just be Games and maybe a couple cool apps, like YouTube, then I am set...

o, hai 360.

So you use your 360 for things other than playing games. :P

A) IMO, the thing looks ugly, not that the 360 and the Xbox were beauty stars

B) Everywhere I have turned it has been a shitstorm about having to register a game under your gamertag; my feeling is that it won't be cheap for that fee they are taking about

C) I wish I could get paid to come up with a lame name like Xbox one; what did it take them 10 seconds to come up with that?

D) All in all it looks promising but I highly doubt I will be getting one, as the 360 works just fine for me and I'm sure games will still be developed for 360 for a long time

If the fee is over $10 they will be seriously hurting the used game retailers. If you have to pay a $15 fee that pretty much cancels out the amount of money you would typically save by buying a used game.
