The Spike cable network also broadcast a countdown to release party the other night for Xbox One, however, I was joining a friend in GTAOnline, so I wasn't as attentive as I was for Spike's previous Playstation 4 release Day One special, it did stream as well from player's Xbox360 consoles.

 

Want to get your reaction just on that, or find out who's got or getting the new console first, and want to report on it, this would be the best thread for that!

 

I don't have a lot to say having been causally observing it and playing GTA at the same time, but they awarded the developer arctic white to the Xbox fan who had the most Gamer Points on record, going for a cool million with two Xbox's, one to play non USA titles and a handheld app for mobile device as well to score as many points as he could, he also played games he never knew he'd like in the process, however, we know from just dabbling in a few, you can spend plenty of time on just a handful of games, that's a personal perspective as well, but both consoles look to offer a higher fidelity graphic experience.

 

Improving AI as well, but I'm going to say the verdicts still out on better control even with new controllers. We'll have to see how a much wider swath of gamers feel about them.

Found this rather cool, aside from the Lord of the Rings jokes going FAR too long, excessive NZ peeps! Obsessive as well.

^^ There's a link at the end for their previous Playstation 4 tear-down. Notice how similar the mainboard is! Sharing much of the same suppliers, AMD and ATI are one company now, as you guys know, I expected to see a GPU and CPU as separate entities on the boards! haha

Looks like it comes apart easier than a 360 (a little TOO familiar there) but I'll still wait to get one until

I know more about their quality/reliability.

 

Just a headsup, what the video didn't show is the case (like most modern consumer products) has

paint marks or stickers to tell if it's opened, so don't go get a new one & pop it open, you'll void the

warranty.  We don't even know if the 1 works.

 

Anybody remember the old topic "How to kill your Xbox 360" (or similar)?

If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it's meant to be.

If not, point & laugh when it flies into a woodchipper.

I'm most miffed by hiding a conventional HDD deep inside, rather then stupidly simple PS3 technique simply repeated for new consoles... This happens with all electronic redesign model proliferations, and there's no good logic to those logic board layouts!
