And all the 12 year old kids go wild over any news concerning the next item they'll whine, beg, and plead to their parents for 24/7 until they break down and buy for the spoiled little brats.
I'm sorry, shouldn't have went there.
sorry m$ this will likely be the first console i will not buy. (have ever console made since the intellivision) but requirign xbox live subscription for basic uses liek netflix means i am not buying your consoles.... also windows 8 sucks and i will be keeping with 7 and look forward to not buying another operating system from you as I now use linux for everything but gaming.. hipefully soon that also will not be an issue
From a wider view, I question the use of Infinity as a name for an iteration of a series. It's hard to see a path forward with such a naming structure, and raises expectations too high. Looking past this console, what do you name the next Xbox, Infinite Plus? Infinity Two?
It may be a trite topic right now, but it shows a bit of lack of forward thinking. It's why I always thought it was an unlikely retail name - possibly a good development name, not retail. It's best to keep the naming structure non-terminal. Stay away from words like infinite, superior, ultimate... it usually doesn't end very well.
