I'm glad to see that MS is addressing big issues out there. I don't what I might of had to do if I had to switch inputs to play PS4.

Anyway sarcasm aside, this is a real odd thing but MS is saying you can plug any HDMI thing into their port. I don't know how it will work but we'll see soon enough.

The Xbox One is like a receiver I imagine. I was hoping this would be the case so that I can plug in my PC and you can switch between them. I wonder what the command on kinect would be to switch. Since they mostly assume you would plug in your Cable box I just heard Xbox TV. But that you can quickly switch between the game on the Xbox one and another feed from the HDMI port, sounds pretty great.

Better to plug-in a SteamBox. Also PC supports the X360 controllers.

Why not both it into the TV so the TV can do what it is designed to do?

And then let a friend take over the PS4 controls via the internet, so you can just sit down and watch it happen.

Most TVs these days don't have more than around 2 to 4 HDMI inputs, and I would say the majority only end up having 2. This frees up another slot on your TV, and seeing as how these new consoles won't be backward compatible, that's a very good thing.

Yeah - the PS4 shagging the XBone from behind like a little bitch while the Kinnect watches on... ummm, just making sure but all threads are meant to be sexist until October?

Am I the only one who is thinking about lag here? Why would anyone want to introduce even more lag to their game sessions?
