  1. This is the world’s largest LEGO model at 11-feet tall, 43-feet long, and with a 44-foot wingspan. It's made of over five-million LEGO bricks (5,335,200 to be exact), weighs 45,979.61 pounds (including bricks and steel infrastructure), and took 32 builders...

    The ONLY information we have from Microsoft clearly indicates that used games WILL need to be re-purchased at full price, and not just for each account but for EVERY XB1 that you wish to play on. Please stop propagating disinformation.

    There is no clear information, but they have denied that it will be the full amount. And I believe that only 1 account needs the full game to work on the x1 being used, the "every account" sounds nuts... even for MS.

    I said it before and Ill say it again they better make a easy way to plug your phone into your console and give it the internet if they don't to want fail with always on connection, or occasional connection.

    This just goes to prove if you can latch on to any idea that's either pointless, inane, or flat out stupid, then do it to its ultimate extreme, you too can join the "elite" in the "Guiness Book of World Records". At close to 50,000 pounds, a real one could probably be built to weigh less.

    Although, its weight and massively underpowered problems notwithstanding, I suppose you could roll the 'ol Imperial Star destroyer over to ninety degrees, and just let it fall out of the launch tube.*nerd*

    This just in:
    Of course there was dissent:
    What I'm even more concerned about, is the number of FBI agents posing a 13 year old girls in internet chat rooms, that this bill will put out of work...:oops:

    Oh no he didn't! Cranky just tossed in the REAL X-Wing card to the idea pot. Please let this come true.

    Would you settle for an RC flying model of a TIE fighter?

    @Xbox: Still convinced that both were on the table until Microsoft saw the reaction

    @LEGO: I'd love to see a USS Enterprise made with LEGOs :D

    You'll have to settle for an RC flying model also:
