The Onion Roasts The Next Gen Consoles’ Launches :-D


I’m guessing that picture is the work of a VERY talented Photoshopper?  😀  Gotta love The Onion’s impeccable timing with these spoofs.  🙂


“Don’t Wanna Be Always Online – Stick With 360 Suckas!” :-P

Microsoft just doesn’t know where to stop.

Engadget – Xbox Chief:  We Have A Product For People Who Can’t Get Online, It’s Called Xbox 360

Seriously?  This is their answer to criticism over the “X-Bone” having to constantly check in with the mother ship?  Just stick with the old console, which by the way, is the oldest console of the previous bunch having first come out in 2005?!  The corporate hubris is strong with this one.

Nice to see that Sony and Microsoft have changed roles for this go-round, with Sony having eaten some tasty humble pie and changing their tune to be more consumer-friendly while Microsoft gets too pumped up on their previous machine’s successes.

The only problem here is,  both of these companies have spoken so far about the next console generation lasting about 10 years or so, so with the longest console generation ever planned coming up (as opposed to the more traditional 5-year cycles I grew up with) Microsoft could easily be setting themselves up for a bigger longer slice of humble pie than Sony had with the PS3, plus PS4 is cheaper and leaves any shenanigans on things like used games up to the game companies themselves rather than the hardware makers.

I mean, when it gets to the point where one company flat out starts trolling the other because of the other company’s bad decisions, something’s obviously dreadfully wrong for the company being trolled…  😛

XBox What? – The Saga Continues

The media of course has been buzzing lately over the XBox One reveal, and after hearing some arguments trying to give Microsoft a break here I decided to chime in yet again on the subject.  🙂

At least I know I’m not the only one who has trouble keeping this stuff brief with how long the Out of Continues episode talking about the “XBone Woof Woof” went.  🙂

Adam Sessler Vs. XBox What

So it’s quite well established at this point that Adam Sessler, always the controversial one, doesn’t entirely agree with those of us who are skeptical of the Xbox One.  In a recent Google+ chat though, he was able to elaborate more on the details of why he views things as he does regarding the console.

One thing I actually cheered at though.  This guy is the first Revision3er to blast the state of broadband in this country.  I’ve seen other hosts shy away from the issue or pretend there isn’t a problem, but he flat out blasted that industry for how they hold technology back in the name of money.  That I can definitely give him credit for.  🙂
