It's not made by Apple, so it's bound to be great. Shame it wasn't made by Samsung, or it would be perfect...

Microsoft blogger Paul Thurrott reported about a month ago that he's heard the Xbox One will launch in November for $500 if you want to pay full price or $300 if you buy it with a Xbox Live subscription.

Gonna be good. Can't say I'm a huge gamer, but I do go through my Skyrim/CoD/Battlefield phases.

I use mine for Netflix and Fifa. That's about it. The 360 has evolved in situ and that's been instrumental in it's extended life span - the One needs to be a step-change. All the irritating load and noise issues need to stop - it needs to just work.

New one supposedly loads games directly from the HDD SIF so hopefully some of the current whirring, grinding and general nonsense on load will be alleviated.

It does Blu-Ray! - The HD DVD format only was a big XBOX sales killer in the early days I think.

From that hilarious video it looks like they have ditched the gamers and are trying to replace the dusty Nintendo Wiis across the world.

I heard that you'll have to pay to play older games and also if you borrow a mates game you'll have to pay a subscription to be allowed to play it

I don't buy preowned games, they usually come in a ****ed case with scratches all over them and used up addon codes.

If I think a games too expensive I have a little patience and wait til the price comes down.

Backwards compatibility doesn't interest me, I don't play the type of games I play more than once so wont need to play them on the new console.

Blu Ray drive will be great it means I can get rid of my noisemongering PS3 which has been used almost solely for movies.

I'm interested in finding out more about it before making a decision.

Just watched PS4 announcement at E3.

Sony have killed the Xbox One before it's even been launched.

Microsoft have been murdered.
