@asante16 I would say if you can afford a Wii U, include it on the left side (after E3).

This is a good time to be a PC gamer. More games, more exclusives, cheaper games and less of this underwhelming stuff going on with the Xbox One and Wii U

@brainiac1988 - it was all PC demos, so better off waiting for E3

For gamers, it's looking like PS4 over Xbox One right now.

However, the huge winner in all of this.... PC Gamers... And that's too easy. By far turning into the best platform for gamers.

I am curious. Did they mention whether the ram was GDDR5 or DDR 3? Quite curious how they omitted this particular spec.

@treepop99 It's just DDR3, they also sidestepped what CPU is used and what GPU is used. They just said ''5 billion transistors'' like that is supposed to mean something.

@Double-Ego @treepop99 But... But, isn't *more* better? You know, like 300,000 servers is better?

Next thing I know, you're going to tell me that size doesn't matter, it's how you use what you've got that's important.

I must admit I love black as the default color again but the case design could be less simple and primitive

@mora616 I don't know. I like the uncluttered look. It's everything else about it that I have no use for.

@bledsoe45sbc @obsequies Most likely, the game discs will have some sort of serial number, which is attached to your gamertag the first time you play it. If someone else tries to use the disc, they will be prompted to pay a fee before they're allowed to play.

"And what of the persistent rumors that Xbox One games will be “always online” – that is, that single-player games would require a constant online connection to function? As it turns out, those rumors were not unfounded, but the reality is not so draconian. Xbox One will give game developers the ability to create games that use Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing service, which means that they might be able to offload certain computing tasks to the cloud rather than process them on the Xbox One hardware itself. This would necessitate the game requiring a connection.

Are developers forced to create games that have these online features, and are thus not playable offline? They are not, Xbox exec Whitten said to Wired — but “I hope they do.”

If it weren't for the comments in Gamespot, I would've left after the "Rocket Science Stuff" comment. Well done GS users and staff, I had a good laugh.

@Zarkhaine @Glitterpig "Integrated." By which he actually meant that it doesn't stick out the way it does on the current controllers.
