Charge or don't charge. I ain't buying one either way. Or a PS4 if it turns out the same. All the fancy extras instead of concentrating on games, they throw in gimmicks i don't want, extra charges, and on top of that i'm still reeling from the RROD. If they couldn't get that right on the "old" 360 (look how long it took em to somewhat fix it) then what is to meke me think they can get it right this time around w/ even MORE power and extras thrown in? PS3 wasn't much better. MS will probably recommend you only play the new console in a sterile environment and only for 15 minutes at a time to avoid overheating.
