    like Sony with the ps3?, you don't need that feature, I prefer that they shake the bugs out before retail rather than after I've brought it.

    Ill be buying an xbox one, policy changing on the whole is a good thing if its what people want

    I do wish it was the same console as announced though as it genuinley was something new, it is now, but watered down

    I have no brand allegience whatsoever, I dont actually understand why so many people get upset about a games console but the PS4 to me does seem like a PS3+

    It is a completely different architecture. The PS3 was a triple core powerPC but the PS4 is an x86-64 so the PS4 is more like an xbox than a PS3.
    The big benefit is that games will be much more portable between xbox and PS in the future.

    Actually ps3 was worse then that. 8 core cell processor with core pretty much for the OS. The 7/8 lower power made it a lot hard to code for. Xbox 360 is triple core.

    I wonder how many of these will end up on eBay?

    Should I get funds (no guarantee that I will), then I will be getting the Xbox One on release day, with BF4.

    At least it may be in 1080p, it appears all but 1 game is upscaled on ps4 besides CoD which is a 1080p game. BF4 will be around 720 as well.

    I was kind of taken aback at that announcement. I'm still gaming at 1080p on my four year old PC so surely a "next-gen" console, which on paper has at least equivalent specs to a modern mid-range PC, should be more than up to the task. And that's before you take into account all of the dedicated hardware and code optimization plus not needing to run a full desktop OS behind the scenes. It seems almost unbelievable that it wouldn't be capable of running a multi-platform game (which is also out on the PS3/360) at 1080p

    It's going to be interesting to see how they compare to a PC when running stuff like Battlefield and COD?

    The extra 150MHz should mean the Xbox One will not need to be replaced until 2023.

    Microsoft have just announced a day one edition bundled with Forza 5 instead of Fifa for anyone interested

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00DCUPE2..._Iko7G.1NC8V4D

    I've changed mine to the above as I'd never have played Fifa but was planning on getting Forza on launch. Well chuffed they're offering it as an alternative as it'll save me 45
