    What's the model number on that pioneer you have? Might be right up his alley.

    yeah, i was hoping for something sleek, but it's a console/cable box, so it looks like a cable box.

    Those dipshits at M$ won't even talk about the main things people actually want to know.

    "It has unfortunately now been confirmed that the Xbox One will not be backwards compatible, either with the Xbox 360 or the original Xbox"

    they didn't mention that, or anything about the GPU, or cost.

    I hate Microsoft. They play the bureaucratic two-step too well.

    Have you ever tried to stop an auto-payment with them? Takes for-fecking-ever.

    I agree with you guys on how they are strategically avoiding certain things. Like the GPU. 500GB HD, and 8Gb of ram? How is the frack does that matter if the GPU is garbage?

    Especially when HD's can easily be TB's and stay the same size...

    I don't think they are looking far enough into the future. I have a feeling Sony is waiting for it to hit the shelves, then release the new PS4, or whatever, that will blow it out of the water and cover all of the xbox failures...




    ok rant over.

    Yeah i watched the whole reveal at work today. They spent 10 minutes on the games for it... the rwsy was publicity and the cable box side of it. The thing is more of an entertainment box than a game console. Im surprised it even plays games. So far... highly disappointed and will be keeping my 360.

    Good rant! Agree 100%. To me M$ thinks they own the market, but they don't realize how pissed off people are from the first xbox 360 failures and other bullshit. So it seems like they didn't 'try' very hard on this one thinking they have the market cornered. If sony gets its online game play up to speed, xbox is going to hurt bad. More so if xbox isn't backwards compatible!

    They are hurting already, with Android, google and a couple other companies chomping away at their market.

    However they will market the crap outtta this black cable box to the younger heathens.

    Kids these days are completely wack, and just want to Pwn some Bitches on COD. Who cares if their parents have re0buy ALL of their games.

    I dunno, seems gimmicky and it'd annoy me more than be beneficial to anything... lol.

    Also M$'s stock is doing quiet well, despite the appearence they're doing horribly. Gates is again the richest man in the world... Still probably won't last lol.


    But this....

    Oh.. and 500gb of space and 8gb of ram... so pathetic and weak... lol. The new xbox would piss itself next to my computer >.>


    Yet... I'll probably end up getting one if nothing else for Forza 5... lol

    This. *Minus the Forza 5*

    Considering my 6 year old Gaming PC has 12gigs of ram and around 4.9TB's of space, yeah the new xbox is under powered big time.

    i will.

    i've got a PC that would like to replace the Mobo, CPU and GPU on, it has xp on it, if i have the key for windows i shouldn't have a problem replacing those parts should it?

    the CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819106002

    the MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128515

    and the GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121722

    this is a VERY budget minded build, i want a quad core CPU to make sure it has the power to keep up with software for a few years, the MOBO is a inexpensive one that has decent reviews.
    and the GPU because we already have that one and it's not a limiting factor on our other PC.

    Unless you are putting all this in a slim case you don't need a low profile video card. Typically they charge more for those as they go into rack mounted servers.

    Everything else is fine. You'll need a CPU fan, if you don't already have one. What ram are you going with?
