New Xbox One TV ad has Rocky trying to inspire us in the background

Microsoft has yet another new TV commercial for the Xbox One posted on their YouTube channel, with the claim that their latest console has the best games, combined with an inspiring speech from Rocky himself.

The video shows clips of four games that are due for release on the console sometime in the fall of this year. Two are exclusive to the console: Halo The Master Chief Collection and Sunset Overdrive, while the other two games, Call of Duty Advanced Warfare and Assassin's Creed Unity, will both be coming out for Sony's PlayStation 4 console.

We are a bit surprised that Destiny didn't get a shout out in this commercial, especially considering that the Xbox One and Xbox 360 beta for Bungie's next game starts on Wednesday. Other games that we are personally looking forward to playing on the console include Forza Horizon, Evolve, Battlefield Hardline and Alien: Isolation.

What's more surprising is that the background audio comes from a speech made by Rocky himself, Sylvester Stallone. The speech is edited from a sequence in the sixth film in the series, Rocky Balboa, where Rocky tries to offer his own brand of wisdom to his son. We are not quite sure what the connection is between this speech and the Xbox One, but it sure sounds cool.

Which Xbox One games that are due to be released in the fall of 2014 are you most looking forward to playing?
