    Step 3: Enjoy as you have completed the process of being an annoying sony fanboy.

    What should be circled is that tricky little question mark in the title of the article and the first paragraph. It's just a rumor, there's been no official reports yet.
    Actually it's everything you expected a 7th Gen console to be. 20% more powerful than a Wii U? Oooo wow, considering the Wii U is made to not have any graphical wizardry but rather efficient innovation, and the fact that Nintendo has never tried to be at the forefront of graphics unlike Microsoft. Might be multi-display support? Ooo great another useless feature considering 90% of console users game on a large TV (not to mention that console fanboys are going to try and say their multi display setup means their graphics>PC).

    Why not a 6850 at the very least? Then we'd expect to see perhaps a console that is at least 15 times more powerful than a 360. These rumours are incredibly underwhelming. This isn't fanboyism. This is pure console whoremongering.

    I still feel the need to emphasize that it's only a rumor. Some of my best childhood experiences were on the 360 -- I played the Xbox as a child too, but never online. I honestly doubt Microsoft can actually fuck this up.

    No-one is going to spend 800-1200+ dollars on a computer when they can just buy the console, that's only 300. That's the appeal of consoles.

    Your friends are too "mainstream" to realize PC is superior without someone deciding that for them.

    Xbox Live. You can't control the community, but for what it had to be, Xbox Live was an amazing experience. Past tense due to the fact that I no longer use it (for now).

    I can't say much about Xbox Live because I don't use it. However, I refuse to pay twice to play a game with my friends in which I have already paid for once. That is disgraceful.

    For the actual console itself, the benchmarks of the Xbox 360 itself are inferior to the PlayStation3. I aren't really a Sony fanboy and my opinion, without trying to be bias is that Sony have overdone Microsoft on this one, and by a long shot at that.

    Sure, people can pay for PlayStation Plus but at least they have the freedom to choose and still be able to play online either way.

    @Blitz
    Everyone who used the Playstation Network ended up paying for it anyway. Personally, I find that Xbox Live's online play is much more enjoyable than that offered by PSN. It's an incredible experience and is absolutely worth dishing out a little bit of extra cash for. Plus with the extra money you would have saved for not dishing out for a PS3 back at their original releases, you could have already gotten yourself a couple years of Xbox Live.
