Just out of curiosity, of those that say they like to have the ability to lend out discs or borrow them, how many actually do just that? I just had this discussion with a few friends last week and while they like having the ability to trade, swap or lend stuff out they never do it. What's the benefit then?

Are there any members on the board that are part of the Xbone Preview Program? I'm looking to get an invite to try out the TV tuner functions coming next month.

@patrickklepek: I think the expectations of certification are different. While we don't have detail levels on the process I can guarantee that the issues with these games aren't in the certification regiment. Does it save? Does the A or Square button work? Does it boot? If framerate, collision detection or draw/pop-in was a certification requirement we would see half of these titles never come out. And in many cases users will overlook a certain number of issues anyway. We're also still in the first year of the console cycle. Go back and play Xbox 360 and PS3 games from 2006 and 2007 and tell me if some of that stuff doesn't have some pretty glaring issues 8 years later.

There is no way MS or Sony engineers are fine-toothing these things for hundreds of hours to find flaws, and honestly I don't think they should have to.

@patrickklepek Ash was a cyborg?!? Geez give us a spoiler warning next time.

Kidding, but one of the most horrifying things ever though? Him rolling up that magazine and trying to shove it down Ripley's throat.

@alexisg: Can we just take the braces ( [ ] ) out of the filename on the premium podcasts? I'm getting the invalid character error in Doggcatcher (where a brace is coincidentally at position 57) just when downloading the Bombcast, the other premiums work (no braces!). Podkicker does the same, Alt+F1 and Powerbombcast will download on the premium feed, but Bombcast is a no go.

@patrickklepek I think one of the biggest faults of this piece is assuming that all of the people upset about the acquisition were backers. The kickstarter campaign has nothing to do with it. Facebook as a company has a history of making bad decisions; just look at the assumptions they make about security and privacy policy, currency...I mean they can't satisfy the users of their own service. Proposing that they will make good decisions with Oculus is suspect for people that didn't invest, but are hopeful for the future and are familiar with the past.

Bought the game last week on sale from XBL, whenever I load the game I can't press start and actually start. It's stuck on the title screen.
