Not to put any doubt on the capabilities of Anonymous members, but unlike Sony, Microsoft kind of knows their way around network security. It would take a lot more effort to hack the Xbone network than the PS3's.

I know, I just can't help but love havoc and mayhem. ^^

Yes, you're right.  No Microsoft product has ever had any kind of security issues...

Besides, all it would take is a DDOS.  There really is no good way to defend against DDOS'ing if there's a big enough botnet doing it.

*edit* removed... much as I like random theorizing, random theorizing over how to hurt a company's network is likely pretty stupid. ^^

Hey, want another reason to love Sony?  Awesome PSN sale going on right now!.

Jeez, $20 for Tomb Raider already? Didn't that just come out a couple of months ago?  Glad I didn't get it then...

This is what I hate about having little time to game and loving RPG above all else. I scroll down a list of great games going "Eh... meh..."

Nice clarification from Sony - they will not allow PS4 games to require "online passes."

My friend who is adamant about getting his XBONE sent me this. Which is dated a day later after this article. Not sure what to think. http://www.forbes.com/sites/emmawoollacott/2013/06/12/sorry-playstation-4-games-may-still-carry-drm/

The first article is a direct quote from Sony, and Sony has already directly said that the system will be like PS3 DRM wise. We know that Sony's own games will not have an online pass, and that they think any publisher who tries to include one into one of their games will look stupid. The Forbes article is a joke, Forbes has posted several articles that are all PS4 scares or One love. They had a 6 paragraph article on the $499 price for Xbox being ready for the holiday and being a good deal and at the end a one sentence blurb about the PS4 being $399.

From what I read, Sony has few really good memory while MS went with tons of less good one.
That would be what's taking most of the xbone space.

Er, they have the same amount of memory...the memory interface is different, but the size of the chips is the same.

Also, I dont know if Sony stated anything about how their ram is used, but Microsoft did say that only 5 of the 8 gbs will be used for gaming.

Somehow, not surprised at all.  It's things like this that made me glad Sony made that Used Video Instruction Guide to poke fun at Microsoft.
