    I thought it might be a bit of "fun" to list the rumours about both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and then tick off which ones were accurate/truthful as and when they can be proven.

    What can I do to help?
    Post rumours AND links to those rumours. I'll then list them in this post.

    Xbox One rumours

    Xbox OS and XBL are completely broken Link
    Call of Duty: Ghosts runs at 720p Link
    Battlefield 4 runs at 720p - confirmed Link
    Snap causes crashes in games. ESRAM is a performance bottleneck.Link
    Microsoft considering digital game gifting Link

    PlayStation 4 rumours

    Battlefield 4 runs below 1080p - Confirmed. 900p Link
    Blu-Ray and DVDs will not play straight out of the box. Confirmed - Link
    PlayStation 4 will not allow video capture via external devices Link

    That's what people who aren't mentally 12 are shortening Xbox One to.

    Xbox One will eat your soul on the seventh morning after you purchase it, whilst the PS4 will look after your kids for free, saving you c. 2k a year on child-care costs.

    I heard Xbone's cloud prowess is dependent upon climate change.

    Blu-Ray and DVDs will not play straight out of the box
    That is a fact from Sony themselves.

    PS4 headset is worth more than 1p.

    Forza Drivatars will run us all over in real life when they become self aware.

    I also heard that if you buy a release day PS4, if you take it straight out of the wrapping, before you power it up - if you just place it gently on the floor and take a massive shit on it then you get Crash Bandicoot and Battle Arena Toshinden 12 for nowt on the PS store.

    My dad works for Nintendo and he said you can play any game you want on Xbox One for free by yelling the name of the one you want to play 100 times in a row at the kinect

    Xbo's start up screen features a video of Steve Balmer screaming "I. LOVE. THIS. CONSOLE"

    The only way to dismiss it is to draw a pentagram in the air while slitting the throat of a goat wearing an Andrew House mask.

    Suppose you could put

    Watchdogs and AC Black Flag are 1080p on PS4.
    PSN could just be as borked as XBL rumours suggest.

    XBO looks like a typo, maybe XB1 would work better?

    Portable view - Never forget.

    Apparently PS4 plays Killzone at 1079p at 29.9 frames! Somebody will get fired over this.

    XO. Imaginatively created with the first letter of each word. Amazing.

    X1 is the only non-silly abbreviation. In about three months everyone will call just call it the Xbox anyway.

    They don't even know themselves. In XBLA it was XB, but the X in the NXE dash update also stood for Xbox.
