...other than great advertising!?
I'm sure less "hardcore gamers" (not that I can financially claim to be hardcore - I only get to pick up perhaps four AAA titles each year ) will promote the media functions of the Xbox One, but they're not really of much consequence to me. I don't really get the time between work and family to get the most out of those services.
So it got me thinking, how would I actually benefit from all the so called social connectivity? I don't do Facebook or any other social media sites. I opened a Flickr account once and to this day, it still sits there with two private pictures of a fish tank on it. To those of you that think you work long hours, try running your own business. Even when the tasks are mundane it still at times becomes all consuming, so I will likely never sensibly have the time to sit and learn to fiddle with YouTube, as in SPOOK's recently posted educational masterpiece (even if it was likely wasted on Old Man Time )
And that's why I think I'll probably be able to have some fun with the share button. Not having to think about recording anything or even pausing and looking through a menu to do so, makes me much more likely to take part. I'm assuming that having the button on the controller will mean simply pressing it straight after one of those Woah! moments that just seem to roll from one to the next in games like GTAV (although that could just be my driving style ).
So what I'm looking forward to most after Killzone Shadowfall, which looks drop dead gorgeous, is playing around with that share feature and, God willing, Rockstar releasing GTAV on next gen.
