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!

Wait, aren't you technically prematurely panicking about other people's supposed premature panic as well?

Of course not because, 1) they've already done it so my response can't be premature, and 2) unlike them, I'm not panicking about anything.

Incidentally, the people you're accusing could make a similar case: they are not panicking, and they are just responding to something they perceive.

such is the irony of the men of straw...

No, they couldn't make that case as their actions say otherwise. Even in an imaginary world where you
making a point is a possibility, panic is a form of response is it not? Yes, the irony indeed.
