Are you referring to the 300 MB patch that will be available at launch that will get all the launch features of the system working? If that's what you're referring to, then that is no big issue. It is SOP nowadays and just about every video game and console is doing this, including the X1. Also, I read articles that are trying to make those who aren't tech savvy believe this is a big deal when it really isn't. I've read articles making it sound like 300 MBs is half of the hard drive space when it isn't even 1% of the HDD space. What should be bigger news for all next gen gamers is the amount of space that some games will need to install their game onto your system. Ghosts alone is confirmed to take up 52 GBs of space, which is a tenth of the HDD. The only saving grace is that we'll actually be able to get bigger HDDs and exchange them out when they come out. on PS4, but no word yet on how X1 will handle this problem. Also, if you're bundling in the over heating issue, it is a non issue. That box was not ventilated and that light is a warning to shut it off or to ventilate the system. The system doesn't actually die and within seconds of them taking it out of the box, the light disappeared and all was back to normal. All in all, just a bunch of Microsoft fan boys trying to make a little hot water seem like a forest fire.

"Clarification's probably not gonna happen. It very well may be 720, it may not. If that's what makes or breaks a console for someone, I feel sorry for their shortsightedness.

I signed on for X1 because it has actually innovated and struck me as a true next-gen console instead of just better graphics and a few tricks and gimmicks.

For what it's worth, if you've paid attention to what's gone down in the last 24 hours, Sony's got some problems of their own that they're trying to squelch."

Both X1 and PS4 will be fine.  Back to the OP...  chances are that ghost will be native 720p.  Not b/c the x1 can't do 60fps at 1080p, but b/c MS was slow at getting X1 tools to IW.

Why even worry about it. Reviewers said months ago the consoles run basically the same.

Just because MS or Activision doesnt state anything to contrast the PS4 (or make a snappy comeback) means nothing.

To bring out lack of "news" is just the conspiracy theory that the editors of the news titles WANT you to do.

You then become a bunch of sheeple being led by your wallet just like they want you to do. You fell into their trap and now they have you by the testies.

I am not saying something as strong as "you are letting the terrorists win" but at least do some thinking for yourself. Think of the reasons you want the game or the console for YOUR reasons. Not some story twisting the facts just to hook you in.

Why worry about running a game at Native 1080p when some TVs out there cant even handle it ?

All that matters is the gameplay to me. If the game doesnt have good gameplay the graphics could be high end but the game would still suck.

Sb i think you're missing the point why so many people are annoyed atm .

Alot of people lost faith with ms in like what 5 mins into the xb1's reveal and ms have tried to win peoples confidence back ever since with a series you complete u turns, lies and double speek. Once you strip away all the flair they added which put people off and just concentrate on what points gamers care about ie ..

does it play games

do the games look alot better than the current gen ones

can games have more features

the answer is basically the xb1 isnt a massive step up everyone was expecting. and all those people who said back when the consoles were released that the xb1 was not as powerful as the ps4 are now sitting there looking smug.

personaly i dont care if a game looks fantastic at 720 with 60fps and all the bells and whistles or at 1080 , but alot of people do, and alot of people maybe dont understand exactly whats involved in 720/1080 on a fps game- still view it well ones obviously better than the other.

Everything thats coming out of ms atm reads like we know the console cant run ghosts at 720 like the ps4 can but we dont want anyone to know till they have bought the console.

Honestly if i had preordered an xb1 the last few days would've been enough for me to cancel the order and be smart and wait till next year

I understand what you are saying. But the only fact we have here is Sony made a reveal.

The reasoning behind WHY MS didnt make a reveal is all speculation. And people are taking that speculation to heart. They are making their decisions based on the speculation and second hand knowledge of someone who can type on a keyboard and nothing else. A freind of a freind who made a post on a website type of thing.

Lets say I heard the news that a freind was hospitalized on the channel 10 news. They said because it was probably over a money dispute. I would not hold onto WHY he is there but just the fact that he is in hospital. If I want to find out why I can ask him when I see him.

what I mean to say is base your needs on the facts and that is all.

That is why I am not rushing to buy a X1 or PS4 when they come out. I plan on giving it 6 months to year to work all the major kinks out of each one before deciding.

well if the latest "rumor" that the xbl online services are fubared is true there's gonna be a lot of really unhappy gamers in a few weeks.

Its a sad state of affairs when people expect something not to work straight from the box correctly nowadays

I have learned it is better to expect failure first and then when or if it does not happen you get to be mildly surprised by your good fortune at that point. Expect the worst and wait and see if not then enjoy, if so no disappointment for was already expected and planned for.

A simple way of living where media hype means nothing when it comes to a product before it is out. No stress, no worries, less disappointment if it turns out what was said bad about is true. If not still no stress or worries for not jumping on the bandwagon early either..

You can say that again. The "rumour" is that Xbox One online, is gimped big time. Rushed....rushed....rushed.
