Yikes, looking more and more like the Xbox Durango made indeed be "always on". Say goodbye to one customer if that's the case. Didn't want to purchase the PS4 but if true Sony has taken a massive lead in the next gen console sweepstakes in my eyes.

Xbox has a good thing going for them right now. I don't see how pushing an 'always on' system is in their interests. They gained their market by being the most accessible of the platforms and catering to the hardcore shooting crowd.

The only thing that this does is make them more attractive to publishers because it guarantees that they won't lose money from people buying the game secondhand. So...their exclusives had best be amazing when they launch.

I've already bought 4 xboxes, so hopefully this next time they will remove the 1 year self destruct sequence that they must install into the consoles.

If they pull that, they have doomed their place in the video game market.

If it's "always on" I will not be buying it. Internet troubles are part of life. When my internet goes out I pretty much always rely on my Xbox for fun.

Also, the whole "get with the times" thing is idiotic and discriminatory against lower income people. A lot of people do not have access to high speed internet may want to buy an Xbox.

I've played Bioshock, Dishonored, and Far Cry 3 all within the last few months... I think all 3 are on my top 5 favorite games to go along with Red Dead Redemption and COD4.

Bioshock is most certainly one of the better games ive played in the last few years. I loved it. Just beat 1999 mode today.

FINALLY! I've been talking about how awesome this game is for months and no one to talk about it. Far Cry 3 has been one of my favorite games in a long time.

The game play for Far Cry 3 was great. I really enjoyed it. However, the thing that holds it back to me is a crappy story. It was just really dumb. They could have done something REALLY spectacular with it.

Still a great game though. Which, for me, I think is surprising because story is very very important to me.

You ass holes need to go play Bioshock. Right meow. Someone on here needs to discuss the story/ending with me. It is quite excellent.

Agreed. I think it was an excellent game but hardly something memorable. Dishonored on the other hand just amazing. Judging by all the reviews and talk on here I need to give the Bioshock series another chance. I played the original when it first came out and maybe played it a few hours before walking away.

What was it that you didn't like about it? I can give you a good indication of whether or not this one will change your mind any.

To be honest it's been sooooo long since I played it I couldn't tell you. I'm going to re-install it since I already have it and give it another shot. I really enjoy a good story-line and from all indications the first game had one of the better ones.

Wanted to follow up. Installed it and just finished it 30 seconds ago. I want to kick the 2007 version of me for not giving the game a chance. Incredible story and the combat system gave me a more weighty HL2 vibe. Excellent game.

Bioshock Infinite - 9.5/10
Far Cry 3 - 9/10

Wanted a new game + with Bioshock so you could play it on a harder difficulty with everything you beat the game with. Told a great story but after I beat it I wanted more. Interested to see what kind of DLC they release.

Far Cry 3 has really addicting game play. My favorite part of the game was taking over Out Posts. They have an option to reset them all after you beat the game. The story was a little wacky but had great moments.

1999 Mode for Bioshock Infinite is awesome after beating the game.

The source also stated every VGLeaks article pertaining to the console’s specs so far has been true, and added that each new Xbox 720 rig will ship with an Xbox 360 SOC for backwards compatibility.
Quote:
On the issue of the Xbox 720 controller, the source said that the design is unchanged, but that the controller now houses an improved D-Pad that looks identical to the Xbox 360's, but will feel different.

The source also confirmed that rumours surrounding new, cheaper Xbox Mini or Xbox TV models geared toward entertainment rather than games are also true.

In terms of OS, the source stated that both models of Xbox 720 would run on a full version of Windows 8 – minus interface – and that it will run the new WinRT framework, which the source claims will make Microsoft’s rig the most “indie friendly” console of the next generation.

Durango will implement different power states so that it can always be powered on, but will draw minimal electricity when not in use. The console will be ready instantly when users want to play, and will always maintain a network connection so that console software and games are always current.
