Hello folks! If you can't tell by the post name I am Michael from the podcast. Having been a member since episode 7 or so we've chatted about the Xbox One at great length. Now with the box set to be available only 11 hours from time of writing this I can only feel a great weight being lifted. Months of typing explanations, seeing Xbone til my eyes bleed (I want to smack myself for even typing that), and countless "scandals" that got equated to the resignation of a president. We all finally get to wrap our paws around years of research and more R&D than I even want to think about. And yet I must stay my excitement. I'm not getting a launch system, probably won't own one for months/years and probably won't even use one for a long time period than I want to think about. And considering the sleepless nights, the fear of seeing the system that I saw so much cool shit be created just for consumers, fail, really puts it all in perspective.
"Last week our friend Killer Rin provided a nice write up on the Xbox
One Truck Tour and this week our other good friend DSight, who was on Episode 7: Earbuds and HDMIs
of XVox, has gone to a private event in Toronto called "Area One" and
has brought with him written impressions, pictures and video. Make sure
if you have any questions regarding the impressions or of the event to
leave them on the bottom of this article." - Xbox Uncut
Our friend Andrew otherwise known as Killer Rin went to the Xbox One truck tour and has come back with pictures, video and a written impression on what he though about the console, controller and games at the event. Before continuing into his impressions below you can also check out his impressions on our podcast (Episode 14: Halo's Destiny) at 53 minutes for a little more of what he thought once he made it back from the event. Without further wait, take it away Andrew.
