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!

Well then for me this is pretty much long live my PC with Linux, WiiU and my future PS4.

Considering you will still have to pay extra to play online for xbox live gold (on top of your internet bill, the games and the console itself) + all this extra crap me as a gamer doesn't even care about...

My PS3 has served me well so I will stick to what works and what seems to actually be focusing on games.

My WiiU is pretty fun for retro games with the virtual console and for the few exclusives it will get are quite fun too so I like it.

The Xbox One seems like a super flashy locked down media centre that plays games as well....no thanks.
