    Yea, he sounds very sheisty. 8 different companies in 8 years which most of them went out of business or something. The pictures of the console arent even real life, they are 3D renderings. Shady

    cant say that im too keen about the online only limitations of it. seems like youd be SOL for all the games you paid for if the system flopped. They definitly have some great hardware specs, but it will be interesting to see how third party publishers take to the platform.
