I'm very apathetic on it. The only defense I have seen for it being better than the PS4 conference was that they showed the box, to which I have to say "who gives a shit?".

This is true, and the ventilation on it seems pretty legit

Sony stumbled a bit out of the block on their press conference, MS looked like a game of QWOP.

Also the quote is, "There can be only one."

I've also come to realize what the hell happens to this thing when the servers are taken offline and they can't check your keys against the server?

I wouldn't be surprised if the using it to control your cable box in particular was for data mining.

That looks an awfully like a VCR I use to have...

I don't really care if it is a"multi-entertainment" console. The industry has been going that direction for a while.

That's because it is the VCR you use to have.
She cleaned her self up, made advancements in her modeling career and now...
She's wondering if you'll take her back, to settle down, in front of a couch. But the one thing that has changed the most about her is her new found self-respect. You're gonna be need'n to burn some cash her way, or she out. (approximately $299 - $399 on the first date and about annual trend of 60+... That b*tch ain't cheap)

Good luck

Screw that. I wait at least a year and a half before buying a console. They have to work the bugs out.

I think Microsoft is going to do a lot more to avoid that this time around. All those defects and broken Xboxes cost them a lot of money in refunds/repairs and lost sales (i.e. people like you waiting to get a console). Especially since for a while they lost money on every console sold, which they are also avoiding this time around.

Perhaps now we can stop talking about pc gaming being dead.

Is that confirmed? It doesn't sound unlikely, but I'm curious it's a fact already.

Valve is making disgusting amounts of money, PC gaming is far from dead and never has been.

From the point of view of a European, calling PC gamng "dead" always sounded silly, 4 or 5 years ago, too. Tons of Europeans are mostly PC gamers.

It seems to me that all the new consoles are being rushed. I'm not a big console fan, but I always liked the hype; this new generation doesn't seem to have much hype going on for it. I think it's because there aren't a lot of games to go with the console hype.

After at least seven years, we get consoled that are either aren't marketed very well, or to much unanswered questions.
