The reveal porting I saw said nothing about attaching games to X-box live accounts, and not being able to play used or borrwed games. Looking at how Microsoft handles subcriptions to Office now, I can see them going full blown retard to consumers about this. That bums me out because I finally like the current 360 dashboard. It makes a nice entertainment center for a bedroom, with Netfilx and Xfinity.

The Wii U just plain sucks. The only game I'd play on it is Arkam Asylum, and I already play that in 3D on my PS3. I don't care for dual screens splitting my focus. And I'd really like a good controller or fight stick instead of that tablet.

The PS4 is just kind of an enigma to me. The PS3 is still quite a system. What are they really going to give us besides a touchpad on the controller.

And thanks for pointing the things Microsoft didn't show in the reveal. I think I fell for it pretty bad.
