If I ever get an Xbox one I am gonna have it painted with a zebra print and put some fuzzy shit on it...maybe some sparkles and glitter.

I'm having myself gold plated, actually. And I've had a giant robot built upon which I can hang from a chain like giant living bling.

Gold-plated gaming console = stupid is as stupid does.  PT Barnum will be proved correct yet once again.

As for a Steam Box - I have one, thanks, it's called a pc:  3+Ghz I7, 16Gbytes ram, Twin SLI 780-cards and sin of sins, Win 8.1 that purrs along just fine thank you.  I only throw in the specs to stymie the rabid Penguins before they troll in and tell me that my PC can't possibly perform as well as one from Valve.

I hope in six years, when Xbox one has long gone the way of the dodo, that car/house/clothes/rent payment you spent was worth it.

that xbox would only be worth it if you could peel off the gold foil and it was made of chocolate underneath.

Slow day at the news desk. So I'd thought just come one here and ogle at Jess *ogles at Jess* =P. Yes I'm that bored :'D.

Can't play games in 1080p? Paint it gold and hope no one notices.

Ok, what I don't get is, why would you make an xbox one out of gold, gold is a good accent not a good primary, second, make it out of diamond so when I drop it I don't accidently break the darn expensive thing :P

Mr.T could put a chain on the XboxOne, wear it and give it some credibility

Jess looks beautiful, and the news was ok too.

the ONLY way I'd buy a steam machine is if they dumped linux, moved to windows, and made the box 199$ or less.

Gold is highly conductive, so I want to know if that thing actually works.  Maybe they were very careful and removed all the electronics before gold plating everything, but kiss built-in wireless goodbye.  That thing's a faraday cage now.  

And a darn good looking one too.

Wow, that was a shorty, barely 2 minutes.

Is there a kind of lacking in the gaming news or does the weekly episode of "The Gist" taking some of your time off monday's GS News?

Just wonderin', Great show still! =)

Ain't that hot in Syd.. :P you guys have great weather this week..Adelaide is gonna be 38 & 40degC tomorrow & Thursday. :( Sony would be wanting to sell as much as possible in holiday season..so fabricating scarcity would be kinda silly.

It was cool to see the new systems come out, but they feel like novelties already. There hasn't been a game I am excited for on any of these recent systems and the ones that have come out feel like rehashes of what can be done on the 360 or PS3.

The comments section is working! If it wasn't for your shirt, I surely would have started to panic =D

Hey comments working again :)


I'm excited about what Steam Machines and SteamOS can mean for gaming, as well as the Linux and open source communities in general.


Side note, those wood crates they sent them in, nice touch, very cool.

I'll have to look at the spec as many companies are releasing their own Steam Machine. And what they can do!

As much I don't have anything resembling the money required to buy one and it is horribly ostentatious, I have to admit that when I saw the gold Xbox One, I said "Oooh... shiny!" out loud.

@ACMC85 They feel like novelties already because of the times we live in. 8 years ago when last-gen came out, a lot of social media was still developing. Now everything is integrated and news reaches us instantly, so information and news on the systems comes too quickly and doesn't mean as much.

@nate1222 @Godlikan They'll turn it on and the Kinect will notify NSA powered assassin robots who will then wipe out that race too.
