I attended the demonstration here in Hamilton yesterday and was greatly disappointed with the experience.  I wanted to see the features of the Xbox One and they would only demonstrate the game feature only. Fielding questions with regards to the hardware and features was meet with disdain by the demonstrator.  So I have to say that this demonstration left a bad taste in my mouth.

The point about my post was that the demonstrators were not interested in showing the features of the machine. In fact one demonstrator told me they were only there to show the games nothing else.

The console they had at the demo I went to didn't have a fully functional OS installed on it, the rep showed me the dash and it was a barebones version that could just launch a game more or less. He also mentioned that because it was early demo software the Kinect sensor wasn't enabled, so voice commands wouldn't work.

I agree that it would be nice to see those features in action, but in all honesty I consider myself lucky to be able to go hands on with the console a month before it's even been released. There were no lines to try it out, I simply walked up and started playing. The real test will come on launch day.

Just to give you a head's up Mister Switch, but the link you shared in this initial post gives false information.

.

I say this because I put my area code in, and it gave me a map and schedule of Calgary, but the schedule listed dates a week into November.

.

Turns out the events here are going on right now. They were going on yesterday and today already, regardless of the info that link gave.

I went to the local Best Buy today and all they had was a demo Xbox One. I got to play a practice lap on Forza 5, their Killer Instinct Demo was unavailable.  I asked the representative to show me the dashboard and he was able to do that.  He talked about the 300, 000 servers and what that meant for the Xbox One.  I don't think that I was the targeted audience for this specific demo.  I probably knew just as much about the console as he did, but it definitely felt great to hold a Xbox One Controller and feel the difference.  I asked some questions about steering wheels and voice commands.  He didn't have a whole lot of extra information beyond what was probably provided in their training.  But as I said, I'm probably not the targeted audience for this type of demo.  Everyone should still check it out for the controller alone.

Hey Springer,

The one in Calgary was something different then what Switch was pointing out. There was a special event that's diffrent than these demo stations.
