Games At an event earlier today, Microsoft unveiled the next Xbox - the third model, but confusingly named Xbox One. The big focus was TV, integrated Kinect, and all the other stuff we all expected to be forced down our throats. I think it took them 25 minutes to actually come to what should be the core of the story: gaming. Nothing groundbreaking in the gaming department, except for how Microsoft intends to handle the used games market and borrowing games from friends: pay up, buddy!

This will do nothing to kill piracy. It will do everything to kill the used gaming market and damage total game sales.

I'm pretty damn sure every last one of my friends and relatives will be asking me to mod their new Xbox for them this time around to allow for games to be installed from downloads.

I've been modding consoles since PS2's official network adapter made for a nice integrated storage solution for loading your library to the console to make them better for semi-portable usage.
