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!

Why is the default position when you have a lack of information, to engage in immediate pants shitting? 'Wait and see' is the only sensical action until the details on how used games will be handled and what the cost will be.

Also, what's with the comments that the focus on being a living room centerpiece is really just for Americans. Are we the only ones who watch tv? That's an odd notion considering how many more providers Europe has than the Americas.

Just settle down. Panic when there's actual reason to panic. I hope you guys aren't this premature in other aspects of life as well!
