    I suspect it's not so much that they don't have spares, as much as it is they don't want unreleased hardware leaked.

    I won't be surprised if first and third party developers are using completely different sets of SDK. Playstation 3 for instance, you see how gorgeous those first party games like God of War 3 and Killzone 2, 3 are, comparing to those third party games (regardless of rather they are PS exclusive or not, UBI's Haze is simply a disaster). Cell processor is actually outstanding in running graphic codes, but Sony just refuses to share the technical details.

    Either way there are tons of amazingly high quality places to eat in Philly, if you eat shit that is your own fault.
    So you've walked back your original assertion then? Good. It was pretty stupid.

    Can we bitch about the xbone some more? What do you guys think about this:

    "Rep. Mike Capuano (D-MA) and Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) introduced the “We Are Watching You Act” last week in order to protect the privacy of consumers from DVR boxes (or similar devices) that include built-in cameras and microphones. Verizon, who provides the popular FiOS service, filed a patent application for a DVR with video and audio monitoring capabilities in 2012. But, at this point, it’s unknown if they have such a DVR in development. So for now, the “We Are Watching You Act” is strictly an anti-Xbox One bill as the system’s Kinect sensor is the only device that meets the qualifications of the bill."

    The fun bit:
    "
    The DVR/Kinect operator must also “provide specific details on how collected information will be used and who will have access to the data.” If you do chose to opt-in, when the device is recording it will display “WE ARE WATCHING YOU” in a font “large enough to be readable from a distance.”

    Giant Bomb and some other sources claim that Microsoft will announce a complete 180 on the retarded Xbone policies.

    Multiple sources inform me Microsoft will announce what amounts to a complete reversal on its DRM policies for Xbox One today.What does this mean?

    • No more always online requirement
    • The console no longer has to check in every 24 hours
    • All game discs will work on Xbox One as they do on Xbox 360
    • An Internet connection is only required when initially setting up the console
    • All downloaded games will function the same when online or offline
    • No additional restrictions on trading games or loaning discs
    • Region locks have been dropped

    Edit: aaaaaaaaaand it's real. New page isn't up yet.

    Edit: Wrong link.

    Yah... when you got people like Jimmy Fallon mistakenly saying the Xbone does not support used games (which it does, if the publisher allows it), expect some new faces in the PR department. Their own fault they wanted to be vague as possible on how game sharing will work and who can restrict it.

    I think this was all a ploy to make us forget that they still want to watch us masturbate.

    Update is live:
    Last week at E3, the excitement, creativity and future of our industry was on display for a global audience.

    For us, the future comes in the form of Xbox One, a system designed to be the best place to play games this year and for many years to come. As is our heritage with Xbox, we designed a system that could take full advantage of advances in technology in order to deliver a breakthrough in game play and entertainment. We imagined a new set of benefits such as easier roaming, family sharing, and new ways to try and buy games. We believe in the benefits of a connected, digital future.

    Since unveiling our plans for Xbox One, my team and I have heard directly from many of you, read your comments and listened to your feedback. I would like to take the opportunity today to thank you for your assistance in helping us to reshape the future of Xbox One.

    You told us how much you loved the flexibility you have today with games delivered on disc. The ability to lend, share, and resell these games at your discretion is of incredible importance to you. Also important to you is the freedom to play offline, for any length of time, anywhere in the world.

    So, today I am announcing the following changes to Xbox One and how you can play, share, lend, and resell your games exactly as you do today on Xbox 360. Here is what that means:


    • An internet connection will not be required to play offline Xbox One games – After a one-time system set-up with a new Xbox One, you can play any disc based game without ever connecting online again. There is no 24 hour connection requirement and you can take your Xbox One anywhere you want and play your games, just like on Xbox 360.


    • Trade-in, lend, resell, gift, and rent disc based games just like you do today – There will be no limitations to using and sharing games, it will work just as it does today on Xbox 360.

    In addition to buying a disc from a retailer, you can also download games from Xbox Live on day of release. If you choose to download your games, you will be able to play them offline just like you do today. Xbox One games will be playable on any Xbox One console -- there will be no regional restrictions.


    These changes will impact some of the scenarios we previously announced for Xbox One. The sharing of games will work as it does today, you will simply share the disc. Downloaded titles cannot be shared or resold. Also, similar to today, playing disc based games will require that the disc be in the tray.


    We appreciate your passion, support and willingness to challenge the assumptions of digital licensing and connectivity. While we believe that the majority of people will play games online and access the cloud for both games and entertainment, we will give consumers the choice of both physical and digital content. We have listened and we have heard loud and clear from your feedback that you want the best of both worlds.


    Thank you again for your candid feedback. Our team remains committed to listening, taking feedback and delivering a great product for you later this year.

    Just remember to cover the Kinect with a sheet and masturbate silently. That is unless they sneakily added heat vision.

    Quick question:

    What's to stop them from pulling another 180 after initial sales have come in, and forcing everybody who owns an xbawx to sign a new EULA that says the same thing as before? After all, they didn't remove the mandatory Kinect.

    Nothing other than a consumer backlash and, probably, a severe drop in sales, assuming that's the worry that caused them to do this 180 in the first place. And can you imagine the outcry when they lure people in with promises and then backtrack to screw them over? That would be ugly.

    Would love to see it though.
