As someone who plays a lot of games, doesn't care about sports, and doesn't care about cable TV, I'm not seeing a lot of draw here. Given the US-centric nature of these features, are they ceding the international audience to the other consoles? That seems like a mistake.
But perhaps they are targeting a difference audience that I am not simply a part of, and that's ok.
I also fail to comprehend why people would care what the PS4 looks like. Are they going to not purchase it solely on the grounds that it does not fit with their decor? That's called missing the god damn point.
As long as GB continues to provide value and has directive independence, I'm happy. The day they don't, I'm not. So I'm not concerning myself over much with preemptive "rabble rabble apocalypse!", and I'd encourage others to do the same. Wait and see won't kill you. Simultaneously I'd encourage the GB crew to maintain that sacred editorial pact with the user base we have come to expect, as abandoning it could turn catastrophic real quick.
