It's worse.This isn't HDMI in cable TV shite, why are people thinking it is anything like Xbox's E3 from 8 years ago?
They aren't even making a big deal about it, just like the Vue crap.
All MS wanted to do with Xbox One is have an all in one system (passthrough) where you didn't have to go back and forth between gaming and your cable box. It worked well too. You could game and watch TV on split screen with adjustable sound sliders. I did it myself. Game on the left side, had baseball or hockey game on right side. Their secondary plan was the social aspect like some shit like doing Sunday polls on the NFL app. That was basically it.
At that time, Sony said nothing. But the second MS phased out TV, it's been:
- E3 shows about Power TV show and talking about music
- PS Vue cable TV subscription streaming service
- Buying anime streaming channels
- Tons of video game movies and LoU TV show
- The recent Video Pass service coming (more tv and film)
At the tail end of PS3, they even made a dedicated PS branded LCD TV, and in 2017 or 2018 partnered with Pottery Barn to make PS branded living room furniture for watching TV.
All all this stuff gamers have to pay for. At least Xbox's TV stuff was free.
