Why do they have achievements for Twitch? that's the stupidest thing ever.  What's next and achievement for using Bing or just pushing the B button, so stupid.

Who the hell is thinking about listening to usb music from their xbox one on launch. This shouldn't even come to your mind until months after TitanFall. GG

Eh not too negative, Who streams with USB sticks? Im sure people will blast me for that but.. honestly who does that.

secondly, NO one wants to watch you play your game LOL seriously cant think of something more boring then watching other people feeds of them playing games.

lastly Twitch .. ah twich not the quickest or most user friendly site already im pretty sure this is going to destroy them.

And why are you bringing up the magazine story? Because I reported on it - a POSITIVE story about Xbox. Calm down with the conspiracy theories, would you? If Microsoft messes up I'll talk about it. Same with Sony. That's how the news works. And if you don't like it don't watch it. Easy.

Love how all the xbox one vids are about the neg things and the ps4 vids are about the positive things. Is this a PS fanboy site? -_-

You guys complain and divert away from this site ... yet both of you are still "fans" of the site. Nothing about this seems biased. It's literally what happened. If MS falls on their face with their launch, I am sure the viral-goodness will appear on this newsfeed next week. Its disrespectful, not for your opinion, but in the manner. Have some respect or simply unlike the page. That's all there is to it.

I like Jess, but does she really need to remind us to comment and/or tweet her every 30 seconds? It's distracting and kills the rhythm of the show. Maybe add one additional news item and skip the gratuitous comment trawling? At least she's hot...

Gameplay footage... On PC we do that via FRAPS and can upload it to Youtube.

No music playback... All those apps most people don't care about, yet increasingly restricted.

As I did with the 7th gen, I'm gonna pass on the 8th gen.

What's the problem with these two consoles playing simple media?

No CD? No USB? Can't play blu ray movies or dvds out of the box?


What the hell is going on? It's not like these things take away from the console, and it's not like they're complicated. They have PURPOSELY disabled them.

Corey Baker..Dude just stick to IGN and other game sources...since that's where most of these "news" schmucks cut and paste their info from anyway.

Michael Rogers

Just call the site what it really is....A Pro Sony viral hub. Everything thing is given the little Rainbow of positiveness regarding the PS4. A "Twitch" of something negative from MS, OH IT"S THE NEWS OF THE DAY...EVIIILLLL Corporation...Such a gloss over an achievement by a global magazine by the "news." How often do you see a game console get put in a magazine that showcases the most advanced technological achievements happening in the world? YEAHH that's right. So Gamespot/Playstation hub....learn to write your stories with fact, not vomit out videos oozing with contrite undertones....just makes the "news" even less credible as it already is.

Twitch is being ruined by next gen consoles.  Horrible site since they started changing a few things.

I think you should mention hat competitions like that one are only open to people living the US... So being Australian I cant enter.

the argument has never been that the kinect is a bad piece of hardware, the argument is that gamers don't want it. and gamers don't want it FORCED on them more specifically. 

i'm sure there are a niche group of people who swear by and love the kinect, but it's just the extreme minority. hell, it even sold a TON of units when it came out, but then......nothing. because it sounds really really cool and futuristic, but when the shine is off the apple, nobody used it.

Lol Xbone is having a hard time running games and streaming at the same time. That's what happens when you use 7 year old DDR3, losers. PWNEd by PS4.

I still watch the show even if it all xbox stuff... and honestly, Popular Science Mechanics can name Kinect best new whatever, but most gamers just dont want it or care for it... go figure...  doesnt matter.. im not buying one..

I think that the xbox rushed their system to compete with sony. xbox has had bad reviews because they have done that to their selves yes i am a playstation fan but i had a 360 as well and I think that the playstation had better planning this time around. you cant blame what comes out in the news on GameSpot they are just giving it to us straight...so i think if you dont like what you hear about the Xbox one take it up with Microsoft

Shibby Distel Shibaabadu

It got a lot of negative press from lots of different sources. Pretty sure xbox will be the same. Fanboys on both sides will cry when they realise their console of choice isn't the second coming of Christ. I just want to play my games.

Funny Sony music label still makes CDs and yet the PS4 can't play them. LOL

I just don't remember PS4 getting the same write up about its inability to play music from your personal USB library. Both consoles have the same issue, but only one gets the mention. Twitch TV isn't a big deal, but it was pointed out to be a big deal. Gakai's capability, or lack of at PS4 launch got no mention... So yeah. Leaves a lot to be desired.

I stick with IGN, Kotaku and Destructoid. If 3/4 are saying good things then it can't be as bad as the 1/4 are making it out to be.

@Born_Lucky why do tv's and printers come without cables because retail stores make $19.50 selling you a .50 cent cable for 20 bucks they make little off the item itself

@DJKrayz_basic I played my kinect a lot for about a month when I got it then realized it was a gimmick and then it became something that is used when a bunch of people are over and want to play dance central.  I thought dance central could be my new ddr, but nothing beats a dance pad.

@jimdove2 @MOBS Well the good thing about the PS4 is that it has a separate processor with 2Gb of DDR3 that is most likley used for backround tasks. 

So to answer u jim the PS4 has both GDDR5 RAM for the games and DDR3 for the system tasks which on a console isn't that many.

@jimdove2 @MOBS  and only you know about  superior tech none of these people own high end pc's but prefer console for the experience rather than driver issues/os issues /user interface collision = steam and u-play running on top each other and btw this is from AMD's website.  

Advantages of GDDR5
  • GDDR5 is the de facto memory standard for today’s high performance GPUs – equip your notebooks with the latest and greatest technology!
  • Provides twice the bandwidth of DDR3 to unlock the true potential of AMD Radeon™ GPUs

@toddx77 @DJKrayz_basic : Chicks hate ddr dance pad it's too limiting and songs are horrible. Now dance central 3 on Kinect is totally another level

@crix01 @Taganobie @jimdove2 @MOBS  I'm not bashing PC I find it quite easy to manage these things just looking at it from a console perspective. I haven't bought ps4 or xb1 I'm playing AC4 on Steam in Big picture mode on Laptop connected to 42" plasma via HDMI closing U-play cause its in my way. Just speakin from experience..

@Taganobie @jimdove2 @MOBS Those PC issues you mention are as common as any issue you might have with a console. A lot of patches are being released constantly for console games, is it not?

Red rings of death? Blue light of death?

And consoles have user interfaces running on top of games too.
