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!

No to disappoint you, I recently acquired this one:

It runs on 4 AA batteries and has a cell backup battery. The cell battery just drops on a big hole, which led to some confusing on my part if I had the right battery. Of course this doesn't work really well and I had to shuffle it around in the hole a few times before the computer stopped complaining about the weak battery.

Even stranger, it didn't work very well at all. Some keys didn't seem to work and when I managed to get in to a diagnostics mode it turned out some keys send different codes each time pressed.

But the next day it started to work better, the day after that I could do even more with it and the final day all the keys worked. So now it's fully operational!

It includes BBC BASIC!
