This video sucks. All of the examples were displayed for such a short period of time it was impossible to really see or read most of them.

@TazmanianD See those two vertical bars in the lower left corner of the screen? If you move your mouse pointer over it and press the left button it does this thing called pausing the video. Repeat the procedure (it will now be a triangle) to start it back up again.

Good luck.

@_Roo_ @TazmanianD I'm surprised it took someone so long to make that joke because I was expecting it. Do you honestly think I don't know how to pause a video? I don't think you do and you just wanted to insult me but even if you did, then a polite, non-sarcastic explanation would have been more generous. Because I can pause the video doesn't make the video not suck. I don't understand people like you who feel the need to make pointless insults on the internet. What do you get out of it? The world would be a better place without comments like yours.

It is painful to listen to Gamespot continue to use 'meme' incorrectly. Have any of you ever looked up the definition... and I'm not referring to the free online dictionary, Merriam-Webster, or Urban Dictionary. Those sites are garbage. It's as if every time you guys use the term it loses more of its meaning. It does not mean digital image, nor does it mean that something is similar. It seems that you guys use it to mean allusion, if you even know what that means.


Richard Dawkins wrote the Selfish Gene in 1976. If you want to know the actual meaning of the word 'meme', find his book.

@gatsbythepig Meme's aren't new, they are something anyone with an interest in media should know. It's kind of neat that its become a thing though.

@chieflion @gatsbythepig It doesn't take a book to explain. The misuse of the word 'meme' is so rampant that it might be one of the few primary sources you can find for the actual meaning... but thanks for the compliment. Sir Richard Dawkins is a highly respected, educated and successful man.

Wish they kept them on the screen for longer... I had to keep pausing it. And they were pretty hilarious. =D "Stop comparing the Xbox One to a VCR... you can use a VCR offline." LOL

Wait a second, Jessypoos was at E3? How come she wasn't interviewing in the Gamespot booth for the entire time? I mean, i like Mr Watters, he's ok but they had the choice of using him or Jessykins. The logic escapes me.

WHERE IS HALF LIFE 3? maybe valve is going to release it as an X-box 1 exclusive? that's the only thing that could possibly convince me to get one at this point.

If XB1 adopts the iTunes app model of cheaper games (ie. 1/10 price), they will sell 10 times more games, eliminating the advantage of resale/rent, while retaining the profits and getting into everybody's living rooms.

I suspect that will be the win strategy.

@Custaf1ux I raised a similar point the other day. Seems like a no brainer to me. I don't really see why you can often get a physical copy of a game for less than a digital copy.

@Custaf1ux How much cheaper do you think they would be willing to go? 1/10 seems way too low to be realistic.
