Basketball has nothing to do with this. I don't understand why you keep bashing it. Didn't make the team in high school? 

I'm stating my opinion. I'm not searching for women to attack on the internet. If it was a man you were not attracted to would you give a shit? But please stop embarrassing yourself.

The more I watch Jess the more you're on the news. But the less I watch, well that means that you're not there. Someone else is. Keep going girl, it's the ONLY reason I watch gaming news anymore.

I'm thinking it was a person who actually liked some of the ideas from the original push of the xbox1, most specifically the family sharing. They wanted to move forward (as they put it) instead of keeping the status quo. Now I wouldn't support or sign it, but if they were genuine in voicing their concerns I can respect that while disagreeing wholeheartedly.

The issue with this now is that there is now a mess of anti-xbox sentiment on that petition, and people are just signing and expressing their reasoning in the comments with stuff like "I'm signing because I want the xbox to fail". Grow up people, competition is good, and while I don't like Microsoft's policies (which is why I don't subscribe to xbox live) you have to admit that good games have come out for the system (halo reach, splinter cell conviction, gears, and mass effect).

A petition to put back all the anti-consumer features? I'm sure in time they'll put it all back anyway, but why would anyone want it back.  Unless it was a MS-paid person (ie, troll) that set it up in the first place...

I will be honest.I couldn't care less about the news-I came here only because of Jess.

I don't consider the Play while you download thing the best thing to happen. I can see it being awful if you got bad internet. Be like buffering but worse so have to see how it works.

Because I love chaos, and I love to see the world burn, I think GS should make a female oriented gaming round table of Jess and Carolyn Petit just for the reactions

I think I know who the crowd favorite would be...

Jess don't take this the wrong way it's just a suggestion and I believe you should heed it because of my time as a Music Executive playing the game Rock Manager, I was very successful.

What your already popular show needs to be become a superstar is a gimmick, I have decided your best bet is to take advantage of your surroundings and capture a Koala (an easy task I'm sure). You then use that Koala in your show, you'll have to call him Jimmy for maximum exposure... Jimmy the Koala.

You can have that one for free I'm feeling generous today, keep up the good work.

Erm how about we DON'T bring back the previous policies? I fully understood the features we'd be getting, though I don't understand why they needed to force an always online policy onto us. They never explained why we had to be constantly connected for those features to work. 

Plus my biggest issue was being checked on repeatedly to make sure I'm not stealing stuff, like a kid you can't trust, and the ridiculous restraints they tried putting on your freedom to do what you want with the stuff you paid £55 for! I definitely don't see why that was required for us to access said special features.

Why would these Xbox retards want their system region locked? Oh, wait. They've never been out of their mom's basement, so I guess it's not an issue.

this is cool, weird that I haven't noticed this show before. Well I haven't been coming on gamespot so often.

Glad to see this segment is responding well from the users and is doing well overall. Many shows on GameSpot end prematurely (like Start/Select), so hope GSN can continue long into the future.

Those jokes were awful. I LOVED it.

As a computer science student, I think that the Kinect 2 is a fascinating human interface, but it isn't enough for me to seriously consider the XBox.  For a flat display (read, "TV"), the control scheme is decent at best in my opinion and cannot be used intuitively for most game control, so still PS4 for me.  Make Kinect an integral part of a 3D project holographic simulation though, cutting out the TV entirely, give me some excellent 3D interactive software, and I'd be in.

This petition proves just how idiotic Xbox fanboys exist.

Funny how there are actually human beings on this earth that actually liked Xbox one's old policies....I feel sorry for them and their way of thinking.

Glad to Jess get more air time.  She has a great personality that GS needs to continue to leverage.

Dudes, stop drooling over Jess. You are giving us gamers a bad name. At least pretend to act like you have touched a female you weren't related to before.

@Maverick6585 She flinches right after, just before it cuts. I think the camera man threw his slushy at her.

@Verenti I bet if Tom McShea made those same jokes we would be burning him at the stack.

@Hells_rebelion I got the impression that they were thinking of the nifty sharing and connectivity features that were thrown out the window along with the required internet connection and periodic check in.

@Diablo-B Here comes the gallant knight to save poor Jess from people telling her she is pretty. I'm sure she appreciates you good sir, for defending her honor.

@Diablo-B Some of the gamers on here need reign it in a little.  But I will say that she seems to know games and her personality seems very likeable.  Her and Danny should team up to be a video games news powerhouse.

@MadMartin @Diablo-B I assure you, I am no white knight. Its just a lil embarrassing for my gamer brethren to walk around with their lil boners every time we see a female holding a game controller. 

You gotta be smoooooth to bag the ladies. 

Play it cool my brothers, play it coooooool.

@ashyblood @Diablo-B Much to learn about what exactly? Do you mean the art of calling an average looking girl hot in the hopes that she will look in my direction? Cause if so you seem to be very knowledgeable so teach me oh mighty Jedi.

@Diablo-BDude, this is the Internet. Once again, you shouldn't take it seriously and most importantly, you shouldn't assume that our behaviour on these online forums are directly reflective of our behaviour in the real world. You have much to learn young Padawan. Hahahahahahaha :)

@ashyblood @Diablo-B Question: when did becoming a white knight begin being a bad thing?  Why, I remember when climbing Mount Ordeals and facing your inner demon was an accomplishment.  Besides, it also conferred upon you the healing magics and everyone knows, chicks totally dig healing magics.

@Diablo-B @MadMartinHahahaha. I don't know your age but trust me - we're not all losers without experience. One can be child-like at heart and be mature all in the same. Jess can handle herself, she doesn't need you to speak for her ;)

I love you Jess you're so hot! OMG!
