Would be awesome if it was October like the PS2 was.

Microsoft Confirms GPU Boost 

Oh yeah, from 800mhz to 853mhz, gonna earn a tiny bit of extra frames!

Well it's still gpu power for everything gpu related for games and such, when you overclock a gpu performance has to increase, it's the main reason they OC'd it. Though it can help with multitasking as well, yes.

And since it's not that big of an overclock, heat won't be that bad, like an added 2 degrees or so. 

I wish it had a 200 bucks gpu in it though.:P 

#1307 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -
even if both consoles had a gpu boost, all it would do is increase the frame rate and the price of the console. nothing more.

You're getting GPU and CPU mixed up.

CPU does that work for applications, not gpu.:P

Thankfully the price is still the same for X1, though it should be lower anyways.=p

yeah it's 700 bucks here 

#1318 Posted by TAMKFan (32730 posts) -
That's even worse than when the PS3 came out here at $500 for the basic package.

They sold over double the price on eBay at first too.

They have put down the price a little, it was a placeholder price. But it's still  over 600 bucks. X1 is around 650 or a little more

Man Xbox One takes up a lot of space. 

Cloud_765
I don't think so. Our consoles are typically getting smaller. The One still looks smaller than the 360 and PS3, doesn't it?

Oh hai Cloud, its you.

so much news flies around lately involving either something that changed, or something that was withheld.

X1 not being able to share videos or screenshots unless you have Gold is bs

#1328 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -
all the withheld information from both companies is BS.
#1329 Posted by Toph_Girl250 (47571 posts) -
I think Wii U sucks.
#1330 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -
I don't take sides. I plan on owning all consoles eventually.

it's marketing 101, only reason is to hype the product

True, though thankfully I you can use external capture cards so I'll be taking vids and screens of X1 games with my Roxio HD Capture Card.

It's pretty easy, there's nothing to it really, just hook up and record!

Depends on what you use it for. It works well and I capture vids and screens with great quality, but an Avermedia is more recommendable.

can you provide a link? to the model or brand you recommend?

Xbox One will function without Kinect

This is one of the best and worst news about Xbox One.

Best because you don't need Kinect, ever.

Worst because they could had made a bundle with no Kinect to make it 400 bucks.

WTF are Microsoft thinking???

It's the most insulting news ever. It's not surprising. Everyone knows that it can work without it. They want to force it on you 

#1344 Posted by mitu123 (153911 posts) -
I don't think I'll ever use Kinect unless there's a good game that forces you to use Kinect, but yeah going by this news it should be 400 bucks without one.
#1345 Posted by The_Last_Ride (70744 posts) -
It's the reason i am not getting one
#1346 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -
Kinect is ok. I use it every now and then to play games like gunstringer. I will still be getting both consoles. ill just wait for the inevitable price drops to occur first.
#1347 Posted by Toph_Girl250 (47571 posts) -
From what Mitu's been telling me, sounds like Wii U sucks. Also I hope Mitu and I can still chat, but as man to man, not man to woman couple. If he don't want to do that and wants to stay away from me though I understand.
#1348 Posted by TAMKFan (32730 posts) -
The Wii U has just been selling poorly, because there's not a lot of games on it yet that people want. The PS3 was like that at first too.
#1349 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -
ill get a wii u eventually as well.
#1350 Posted by Toph_Girl250 (47571 posts) -
I do hope Nintendo can make a comeback.
