Xbox One Reveal UI Demo Faked?

Xbox One Reveal UI Demo Faked?

The video below is an exclusive Wired video that shows Xbox One TV integration. As noted by a NeoGAF user, Microsoft seems to have faked the Xbox One Live demo reveal and judging by the video the actual UI is choppy, slow, and not smooth the way it looked like during the reveal:

User jaypah said, “Yeah, we found out shortly after the show. Apparently that wasn’t the actual episode of Price is Right that was live at the time. Plus there were videos of an actual demonstration and while it worked OK (choppy video on initial channel pull-up), it wasn’t as smooth as the stage presentation.”

User Kyoufu said, “Yeah there’s a video interview where they actually show the real UI with the snap feature runs at like 5 frames per second. They faked all of it on stage.”

Microsoft is already in hot water following a disastrous Xbox One announcements with vague features and lack of clear responses especially for DRM and used games issues. However, the company should be prepared for another backlash if the presentation turns to be totally staged. To watch the full Xbox reveal, watch the video below:

To launch the high quality TV channel TNT in Belgium, the crew placed a big red push button right in the middle of street in an average Flemish town. Above that button is a big arrow that says, “Push To Add Drama.” and they invited people to use the button, and then they waited.

Find out what happened when someone pushed that button:

This is quite a creative ad for TNT that is worth checking out.
