Yea, just like the PS4. Did they get together and come up with specs that would use the cheapest cpu they could get and base everything on the Radeon 7000 series GPU?
Looks like a cereal box. HDMI passthru just means you have to have one more device sucking down energy just to use the voice features. Why not make a deal with a provider to include 100% functionality without the providers set top box? Rip everything to a 500gb hard drive? Bubba is right, it will fill up FAST.
- clearing throat - just like I KEEP saying, the discs are not going away any time soon. We need faster internet speeds and a lot bigger hard drives included in these systems to make that feasible.
I like the new kinect but the features are gimmicky. My Harmony remote can turn everything on at once and I dont have to open my mouth lol
Maybe I am too cynical in old age but neither of these so called next-gen devices are really anything but a current gen computer with limited functionality. Nothing at all screams "future".
I am leaning very much towards going back to computer gaming even though video cards have stupid prices. I just cant see the point in using a console that isnt going to be next-gen after a year.
