    I think this was a wise decision by MS to exploit Sony. I think a next gen console > a remote.

    Well only 26 more days until its revealed that its already out of date hardware when compared to current gen gaming PCs. No thanks.

    I like how everything is always a secret. How about if we keep it a secret from them if we are going to buy one or not.

    The suspense kills the little kiddies that have been waiting all throughout middle and high school to get a new gaming console. I could not possibly care less about the new xbox. The only upside that I can see is the fact that now newer PC games will be coded with better graphics because they won't have to completely re-code a game for it to work on the xbox from the PC since they're both going to be direct X 11. This will lead to less mishaps like Crysis 2...

    I think it will retail between $600-800.

    From mid-February? I remember that story, and I can't remember seeing it on any other sites I visit since that day, or since. And 21 bids for a total of $420? From that alone I'm gonna call bs.

    That's a physical system, and this brought in more...

    That's still $150 too much.

    I mostly agree apart from the Crysis 2 part

    Lol, there's still profit in it being outdated though. PS2 made it work with it's extremely out of date hardware. 720 should do just fine and make more profit than pc as usual

    The graphics of Crysis 2 should have been so much better. They dumbed that game down so the xbox could handle it.

    Agreed, it wasn't just the graphics though, the game itself was rubbish compared to the first, first of all, you walked down corridors and things happen around you in Crysis 2, in the first Crysis each level was more of a sandbox, you could approach anything from any angle.

    Crysis 2 was the biggest disappointment, so much so, It was the last time I will ever pre-order a game.
    I purchased Crysis 1, not really knowing what to expect, but the game was just awesome, pre-ordered Crysis 2, biggest let down this century...

    Most likely still going to buy it even if its always on. I am not going to change to Sony, no offense. I just prefer Xbox and I think MS will surprise people. I have a nice PC anyway so if I cant get online I don't care. Not saying it is right but if you cant even play a game offline after downloading updates first then that is bullcrap but still wont stop me.

    That is why I never buy stuff on eBay really unless I have too. I always here about people getting games early and instead of buying the game, they buy the "Box" on ebay lol.

    Well, yeah. The DX11 patch was a bit late also.

    I'm looking forward to it , assuming it's not too expensive I will definetly get one , I like owning a PC and an xbox. Be good news for PC games as well , all the cross platform games will be a lot better. Finally can get rid of the memory limits of the current xbox .

    Be interested in the price , usually we get ripped of in the UK when the price in dollars gets magically tranformed into the same amount in pounds. My preference is xbox but I can easily be persuaded to get a PS4 instead if its simply better.
