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!

There's a difference between having reservation but waiting until you have all the facts, and freaking out right from the start while lacking the facts to justify it. I'm not suggesting anyone be convinced everything will be fine, I'm simply saying don't be convinced of anything yet - let's wait and see when there's actual tangible proof one way or the other. Deciding, at this point, this will be a disaster is silly -- and equally so is deciding it will be the opposite.

BTW, I was one of the RROD victims. Microsoft neither denied any issues, nor recommended I buy a new unit. The truth is they were extremely accommodating. I had a replacement 2 days later at no expense to myself. That was one of the quickest & easiest resolutions I've ever had.
