I think you are just projecting your fanboy wishes here.
What was shown so far about PS4 looks good. It seems very game-centric, which is something I desire from a game console. I don't care they didn't show how console looks like - presented games look good, which is important thing, especially considering that those are first gen games and still in development.
XBO might also end up to be good console, but I fear MS is loosing focus here. What I didn't like is, while they did show unit, they were even more vague about specs than Sony. Is console using DDR3 or DDR5? DDR3 would be quite bad. I'm not aware of current DDR3 graphics card capable of running demanding games in 1080p with high details, and that is TODAY - this console should be relevant for at least next 5 years, so crippling it with DDR3 could be a huge mistake.
I understand that MS wants to leave games to E3, but showing at least some teasers for mentioned exclusives would be reassuring for gaming segment of audience, which was majority. As it is, MS made it look as if games are not priority here. Which is a wrong message for a game console, even one that is supposed to do much more than just games.
All in all, whole presentation was unbalanced. Like combining focus on media (which is something casual users should dig) with nerdy details about number of transistors in APU, which casual users couldn't care less for. And missing to mention almost everything in between.
In contrast, Sony's presentation was very focused on gamers, and presented features - gameplay recording and streaming, friends invite/take over, playing partially downloaded games etc. were all in line with that. As a gamer, I found it very inspiring, and reassuring that PS4 has potential to be a great console.
