No mines always online, just don't be an ass and try playing the new CoD online a week before release and you'll be fine.

Rumours I've seen floating about:

Xbox 360 SOC = 100% backwards comparability + more processing power
Runs Windows 8 = WinRT framework (could be huge benefit for PC gamers, since Sony are moving that way too)
Controller is same

If that's true I'm actually impressed.

So if both the PS4 and Xbox are both just PC's with custom hardware, could this mean developers will start creating games with standard PC components in mind and just downscaling them for consoles? If so that would be fantastic, one platform for developers.

It won't be that much more powerful than the current leaks if it uses the 360 SOC for extra processing. The 360 is PowerPC based and the 720 CPU is x86-64. It would be a programming nightmare. The GPU wouldn't add much either. It certainly would not make up for the >600 gflop difference in GPU performance between the 720 and PS4. It would make up 150 gflops at best.

Runs Win 8? Lol yay. More APIs for the system to chug through while also trying to run games.

Also, official:




Apparently only an hour long event. So don't expect them to show as much as Sony. Though they almost certainly will show the design of the system.

The console looks nice but the presentation so far is disappointing. I play games, I don't need all this tv shit.

Totally agree. When it is game time, it is game time, I don't give a shit what is on TV. I don't spontaneously decide to watch TV in the middle of gaming.

This is seeming more like a family media center than a gaming machine.

Okay, really. Will someone get this cocksucker off the goddamn stage? I don't exactly have all day to watch this stupid shit. Get the good stuff going.

Other than hardware updates, these are the reasons im choosing PC this time around. Both consoles are wasting their time integrating these useless features when all most people want to do is play games, its the reason they buy them in the first place. More useless features that I dont use = more useless software updates, nothing shit me off more than turning on my console to play a few rounds of BF3 with friends only to be delayed by a critical update for something I dont even use. Why do they think we want to use it for TV tuner/internet browser/media centre when everything these consoles can do is already on our computers.

RIP to the term "Gaming Console".
