The fact MS had planned for a future reveal and managed to keep it under wraps - even accepting "yes, we only offer 1080i" as a fact as opposed to arguing, was actually a great press attention grabber, when they announced the 1080p support 12 months into the 360's life.
Does anyone think MS actually have it in them to have something similar up their sleeve for the One? One of the reasons I've not yet bought an XB1 is because I want to see how things play out before investing any money this time - I didn't have a wife and kids when I got the 360.
Thoughts on MS producing some form of masterstroke? I don't hold a lot of faith tbh, from the outside they appear to have really dropped the ball.
