so 1080p @ 60 FPS is confirmed then? I thought MS was unsure about things running at that rate.

High def? I think you meant 1080P (was high def in 2006)

Too bad Forza is the only Xbox One game in HD, the rest are 720. It can't even run a current gen game (CoD: Ghosts) in HD. Absolutely pathetic piece of hardware.

It's great to see the community news again...though I wish there was an easier way of finding it.

@Osama Rawashdeh When what on PC?  Batman: Origins is out on PC right now.  Forza is, I think, an "exclusive" so that may be next year or never, depending on what "exclusive" means this time around.

@-Saigo- it would be quite instinctual if they put it under the community tab at the top, instead of simply listing forums.

@DigitalDame 

tsk :P staff replying to facebook comments. They're just copypasted from facebook and won't see your reply anyway.

Just one of the reasons the facebook comments on gamespot are disliked.
