About the voice control stuff... I think we are lightyears away from voice being an integral part of how we interact with computers.

People say Google does it well, and I agree, except when it doesn't work right and you have to repeat yourself, the same thing with Apple, Microsoft, and Amazon. Also it just doesn't feel natural, and it annoys EVERYONE around you.

I was near a guy the other day who was dictating his text messages back to someone, and it was the most unnatural, ridiculous things I have witnessed in a long time when it comes to human interfaces.

It doesn't mean we should stop trying, however, and I actually think MS was taking a bold step making Kinect a pack-in. It really is too bad they backtracked.

MGS4 is about 2.5 hours if you skip the cutscenes. This shit is waaaaaay overblown with drama.

I don't think the external drive support has launched yet... that said, it won't matter what sort of drive it is. There are certain protocol standards that MS will need to support and chances are they will support them.

This guy tries to explain how normal people buy game consoles and hardly any of you listen. Look, people, Sony could learn a thing or two about how to integrate, and Microsoft could be better at reaching out to smaller devs.

This is OK right? That my wife who plays casual Dance Central and XBOX Fitness would rather do that than play Flower or Fat Princess?

The story here, for me, is right up there with Mass Effect 2, and Bioshock Infinite.

I find it really odd that whenever the GB guys talk about the story in AC they jokingly suggest it's meaningless, and that even Ubisoft doesn't care. I didn't get the same impression from the 4th wall stuff in AC4... I thought it was humorous, but also a pretty great evolution of the modern timeline.

Also... from some of the market research stuff... I really hope to see some World War 2 AC action.

Another conflict shrouded in hyperbole

If the pinning worked reliably, I think I wouldn't have many problems since my library isn't that big.

Are pins broken for anyone else? Sometimes all my game pins go away, sometimes all the app pins go away... pinning a game or an app (depending on which type is missing) will fix it.

They're definitely going to have to make some changes, but I really haven't seen any design concepts anyone has come up with to replace it. Only minor suggestions.

I purchased a second controller and there weren't even batteries in the box, there was just an empty space where they should have been. Xbox One battery-gate gets worse and worse folks!

I'm impressed you put that much time into it. If they do change their policy, good on ya.

If I was super bent on having that "Day One" graphic I would have purchased a replacement and swapped out the plastic face, then returned the controller as bad.
