I game on every major platform across as wide a variety of genres as possible.
I despise console wars.

YOU GUYS BETTER BE READING THE WORDS UP THERE I SPENT LIKE HALF AN HOUR
FORGETTING TO WRITE THEM WRITING THEM FOR YOU GUYS.
Yeah, it’s a neat feature.
It’s how I’ve been playing Monster Hunter at least.
I have a feeling it will.
The PS4 controller has a headphone jack, and if it’s anything like the Wii U, you can just plug in the headphones and use the built in mic.
wasn’t it the same way with the 360?
Yes, which is kind of why it’s even more baffling why they’re making another proprietary port.
because it has the word bone in it
MS are now using a propriety Data port so only their licensed headsets will work with the console.
This means you cannot use any currently existing headsets, and you will not be able to share one between PS4/Wuu and the X1.

Will I have to hook it up to an actual games console in order to play games?
Consoles have lifescycles.
Steam does not.
A game hosted on the current digital distribution systems for consoles will be rendered unavailable for download sometime within the next decade. Should I download a game onto a console and have that console break in the time after the game is rendered undownloadable, that game is lost to me.
A game hosted on Steam will most likely be there for as long into the future as you care to imagine, because Steam is a constant platform.
A disk on my shelf will last for as long as I care to keep it, can be transferred from console to console and will continue to exist independent of my access to the console it was originally played on.
And here’s the point:
If we are planning to introduce a mechanism by which I must unlock a game via the internet in order for me to play it, I would very much like an assurance from Microsoft that I will be able to freely access those games once the unlocking service is gone (because it will go, that is the difference between Steam and Consoles).
It’s a simple enough thing to ask, but until they confirm it, and I would very much like them to, this console is not for me.
Negative, unrelated commenter.
I have to roll my thumbs on the sticks to reach, but it’s manageable.
Ok, so as someone who physically cannot hold the Duke, and can only play with the S for a limited time, how well will this fit into my tiny girl hands?
Self publication =/= no barrier to entry.
Just a reminder that both Sony and Nintendo will allow self publication and everything that goes along with that, such as setting your own prices, and deciding your own sales.
Oh god why
It’s not a real list
Although I don’t hold out much hope for the real one.
I think we can all agree that the real tragedy of the day was the no-show from Usher.
I think as gamers we all need a nice cup of tea and a sit down after today.
XBOX, MAKE TEA
Prom night dumpster baby.
Can’t they just unplug it?
