    That's just the mini guide isn't it? Loads you can't do there.

    Or have they changed that in a recent firmware? (Haven't played any consoles for about a year)

    It's an opaque full XMB, and you can do practically nothing with it. If you try and use any apps it has to close the game, the app then takes twice as long to load as usual, or it just crashes altogether. It's enough to piss Dizzy off though.

    I see we are talking about this video. Just in case someone has not seen it yet, witness how you can kill off your parent's career in less than 3 minutes.

    Leak. That'll be viral marketing. People are more likely to share and care about something if they think it hasn't come from some dripfeed marketing campaign.

    He calls Bing garbage at one point... Not sure that Microsoft would want that in the video, however "viral" it's supposed to be!

    Maybe they're going to own it, use it and therefore make it uncool so the kids stop calling it that.

    Microsoft emerges as a CPU force with Xbox One and Kinect

    Microsoft is not the first name that comes to mind when you think of revolutionary chip design, but that perception is likely to change once the Xbox One and Kinect hit the market. The chip design in the game console and motion detection sensor are unlike anything on the market, at least at that price point...
    edit: It's weird seeing an article praising the Xbox One hardware, especially since the message in the media/on message boards seems to be how much more powerful the PS4 is. Check this paragraph out (emphasis mine)

    Among the 50 MCUs are 15 special processors that can handle things like graphics and physics processing. The result is a chip and system that are freakishly powerful and would make any PC gamer drool. The DRAM can access the CPU cache at a rate of 30GB/sec. and non-CPU cache at 68GB/sec. The embedded RAM can transfer data at a rate of 204GBs/sec to different parts of the chip.
    Right, who's going to be first to pooh-pooh this article?

    Switched my standard Day One edition on Shopto for a Day One edition that comes with Battlefield 4 and 1-year XBL sub for £489.

    Quite happy with that - also chuffed that, thanks to Shopto's new 'Swap' system, i havent lost my order date.

    Gaming forum Next Gen post goes some way to this, comments from developers rather than from Microsoft:

    http://www.edge-online.com/news/power-struggle-the-real-differences-between-ps4-and-xbox-one-performance/

    Plus you have DF's comments that the eDRAM is incredibly fast, but also incredibly small... the graphics intensive tasks it is pitched at dealing with have no chance of fitting into that space.

    Also amazing CPU performance. This is all familiar territory. Fantastic CPU on paper, quirky architecture that devs have to work around to get the best out of. It is the new Cell.

    Xbox One does, however, boast superior performance to PS4 in other ways. “Let’s say you are using procedural generation or raytracing via parametric surfaces – that is, using a lot of memory writes and not much texturing or ALU – Xbox One will be likely be faster,” said one developer.
    So Xbox One will turn out to be vizzini's console of choice this generation then? :D

    Just you wait. Just you bloody wait. If there's any justice in this world, you'll both get the full vizzini teardown later. Numbers. Large numbers. Acronyms. The works.
