This not-news is infectious. As in I'm starting to feel sick.

@Shivoa: You should consult a doctor.

Well, it's still interesting. I hope they change the name, I don't want my Xbox continuously spinning, it would scratch the disc inside.

The Xbox spinning creates a strong gravitational pull around the console, so you just put your disc near it and the Xbox detects that the disc is in orbit. So there will be no scratching.

What about orbital debris?

Once the disc reaches orbit, the Xbox 720 console starts a process where it will immediately stop everything and flush out everything except the disc, immediately after this happens a force field is put up around the console to insure your disc is protected from orbital debris. This is cutting edge technology folks.

I don't really think it is an accident.

I'm more interested in the story of who thought "Durango" was a good codename for a console?

@CL60: I'm glad Microsoft is putting this technology to use by using it on video game systems.
