    Focus has shifted from games to services that will be unavailable in NZ, not as powerful as I thought it would be, only 8gb ram?

    Why would it need more?

    The TV integration will require an external supported receiver device which will be sold seperately and will also only be initially available in the US.

    I'm reading that as, the new services will never be available in NZ.

    That external devices is more then likely just a cable set top box.

    Don't like the name. Only serves to confuse.
    We'll also be paying more than the Americans for a console that can do less.

    Initially I thought it was a reference to the Xbox 1st gen.

    I see your point, but the original xbox is so old, it's almost irrelevant now.

    was looking for more specific info on the hardware, 8gb ram doesn't say anything doesn't even say if it's DDR3,4,5?

    Interesting statement on the Xbox official website:

    "A new generation of Xbox Live.

    Unleash the power of the cloud with a new generation of Xbox Live: the network that unites every member of the Xbox community. It also connects you to thousands of games, songs, TV shows, movies and sports. More importantly, itís a scalable source of power that will grow stronger over time. Best of all, your games and profile are stored in the cloud, so every Xbox One console behaves like your very own. And because itís all one service, your Xbox Live Gold membership will work on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One."

    This means that you will still need to pay membership subscription to play online (nothing new). However it mentions that your games and profile are stored in the cloud.

    On another website (not official Xbox site), Microsoft says that while the Xbox One requires an internet connection, "it does not have to be always connected." The difference means that Xbox One players won't be restricted from gaming if a connection drops. "We are also designing it so you can play games and watch Blu-ray movies and live TV if you lose your connection," says Microsoft.

    Despite the system not requiring it, developers will be able to create games that will not play offline. Wired reports that games will be able to hook into Microsoft's Azure cloud services with a lack of offline support, but there is no requirement for them to do so yet. A second part to the always online rumor was some type of activation system that prevents used games. Microsoft says it's "designing Xbox One to enable customers to trade in and resell games," and promises to offer more details in future. Wired has some additional details, noting that secondary use of a game disc will require a fee so that it will be marked and owned and can be played without the disc ó something the Xbox One supports natively.

    It's DDR3.

    Processor and graphics: as rumored, a heavily customized AMD chip that combines an eight-core CPU, a GPU tailored for DirectX 11.1 graphics and 32MB of high bandwidth embedded ESRAM memory. The 28nm chip will consume around 100 watts, which is slightly higher than current Xbox Slim and PS3, but Microsoft promises noise from the cooling fans will be "four times quieter."

    System memory: a Sony-rivaling 8GB of RAM, although it'll be DDR3 instead of the PlayStation 4's GDDR5.

    Audio and video: 1080p and 4K both supported; 7.1 surround sound.

    Kinect: This will be bundled with the console and contain 250,000-pixel infrared depth sensor as well as a regular 720p web cam.

    Storage and media: a 500GB hard drive of unknown speed plus a Blu-ray / DVD combo drive that will be used as little as possible. We're told disc-based games will be ripped to the HDD automatically.

    Connectivity: HDMI 1.4 output and passthrough; a "few" USB 3.0 ports; gigabit Ethernet; plus, three separate 802.11n radios to allow the console to communicate with its controller (over a form of WiFi Direct) as well as other devices (such as perhaps other Windows-based phones and tablets) without losing its connection to the internet. At other times, two radios could be used to maintain a stronger WiFi signal.

    i hate the idea of all your saves going to the cloud, all that means is that you have to be online to play any games or save your progress, hate that aspect of gaming too may things can go wrong.
