As is the usual Friday tradition, The Destructoid Show will be airing live today - tacky Hawaiian shirts and all - at 3:30pm PDT over on youtube.com/DTOID. We'll be discussing the most recent Xbox One news, watching Bungie's new Destiny trailer, and ogling the latest PS4 footage of The Witness. Hope to see you all in the chat!
We're only a few short days beyond the official unveiling of Microsoft's next-generation videogame console, the Xbox One, and things haven't gone all that well. Microsoft is catching a ton of flak from every direction for an event that the masses have somewhat unanimously declared "underwhelming." Digital lines are being drawn in the virtual sand over this press conference, and the most vocal bunch is loudly siding with Team Sony.
Given some of the reactions to the Xbox One reveal, you'd think that Microsoft was guilty of some sort of legendary gaffe, a mistake so serious that it sunk any chance the console had before it was even born. But that's not the case. Xbox One is positioned for success just as well as PlayStation 4. In fact, maybe even more so.
The most commonly drawn comparison between the PS4 and Xbox One events is that Sony showed games while Microsoft didn't. This is completely accurate. However, anyone that expected Microsoft to actually show off games clearly hasn't been paying attention. Microsoft so much as publicly stated before the event that it wasn't going to focus on games. Rather, E3 was where it intends to flaunt the system's software.
Nintendo recently had a pretty big reveal for Pokemon X and Y, but ultimately, a few creature showcases in the grand scheme of things isn't a whole lot. In fact, up until now we've just gotten bits and pieces of X and Y at biweekly or monthly intervals, which helps add a teaser element to the entry.
There's just one problem -- the game is set to come out in October, so Nintendo probably needs to give us a bit more info before then. Well, it seems as if Nintendo will rectify this issue on June 11, as it's going to host an hour-and-a-half roundtable with Game Freak developers, which should yield a ton of info on X and Y.
If you've been waiting for more info on Pokemon outside of drip-fed Japanese scan leaks, sit tight until E3.

Welcome to another edition of Dtoid's Friday Night Fights!
So... do any of you Friday Night Fighters have anything positive to say about the Xbox One? Anyone? I'm seriously looking for some glimmer of hope in this bummer of a week, but judging by our poll results, there aren't many (if any) of you with your glasses half full right now.
I don't think I've ever been more depressed in the days after an initial console reveal than I am right now. Literally the only things I can point to as highlights are the fact that the controller hasn't changed much and the console has a flat top (which it'll need, since we'll have to keep our 360s stacked on top of it). If anyone has any words of wisdom that can change my mood, I'm all ears!
I grew up as a Nintendo kid, through and through. From the very first time I laid eyes on a Nintendo Entertainment System at a Sears at the age of four, I wanted to be a part of that world. I have no idea why a four-year-old would have the tenacity to save up money he had gotten from relatives to purchase a gaming console, but according to my parents, that's what happened.
From there, I moved onto the SNES when I was seven, naturally. After all, I was an all-out fanboy, not content with exploring other options and broadening my horizons -- I mean, what could they possibly offer me that Nintendo didn't already? Unfortunately for me, I stayed in that tunnel vision-centric mentality for quite some time -- that is, until my cousin showed me the PlayStation, and my whole perspective changed.
Or should I say, I gained perspective.
