Hahahaha *bleep* off was he talking about the upcoming dashboard update!! Just admit it the console exists in some form and developers are now announcing games for this impending next-gen.. It's retarded how much they cover up something that is obvious by this point.

Odd thing is how people are sensationalizing the whole thing, when the PS1 was out, there was a next-gen playstation being worked on. When the PS2 was out, the same thing was going on. they're always doing R&D for their next generation to field out the best potential parts and technology to afford them the longest lifespan once they hit market.

Everyone knows MS, Sony and Nintendo have been working away in their labs. Going "YES WE CONFIRMED IT" means nothing with actual hardware managers have noted years ago they're actively involved with CPU and GPU companies to see where their best investment might come from. I guess it does grab the headlines for those who haven't been following it though.

As far as new dashboards go, ugh really? I admit I didn't care for the blades that much, the last version wasn't that bad and I'm honestly still trying to get used to the tile system in this update >_< stupid apps placed all over.

I agree, not a big fan of the new dashboard

Everytime a console comes out, a new one begins development. Thats simple fact. Hasn't Miyamoto (I believe) already said that they have begun the next generation of handheld in an interview?

Pretty much a foundation of all technology, when a new CPU comes out there's already a successor in the works. Same with video, storage etc. It's an industry that doesn't sleep but in the case of consoles it's always stressed that they've been able to confirm something is being planned.

Which is why it's sad / amusing to see "iPhone 5 CONFIRMED OMG" and "XBOX 9000 CONFIRMED" because really, we knew those were coming. It's not like MS is just going to throw their hands into the air and go "We're tired of making boatloads with Live and game sales"

It's not a bad deal if you actually use the console a lot as it works out at like 2 cents a day or something if you get the yearly sub which isn't much for what you get. I guess it ultimately comes down to what you use consoles for and how much you use them. Xbox Live isn't as bad as it often gets made out to be though.

Live: $59.99, up here in Canada at one point I swear we had to pay tax on Live subs until maybe a year ago.

$59.99 / 13 = 4.61461538, you get a extra month buying a year.
$59.99 / 365 = 0.164356164.

Thats less than the cost of Nexflix, less than buying a coffee every morning which people up here do religiously. Its rediculous when people can't see the big picture but then justify spend $50 a month on a cell phone which they will ditch in 3 - 6 months when a slightly newer one comes out... Thats why I never really understood the argument against Live when its a great service that helps to really connect you socially with the people you play with. If you ask me it has more to do with todays Facebook genoration, they're lazy ass ---- and want things handed to them for free when thats not how it works. Nothing that's free is really that good, its always below standard which is why its free to begin with.

Live isn't good enough to pay for. Psn is great, and free.

I doubt you've ever seen what the start up screen looks like, much less been online. The PS3 is a great console, don't get me wrong, but PSN for me is the direct cause of why mine simply collects dust more often than it should be used. Theirs just nothing there, its so bare minimum its like looking at a blank piece of paper when I log on. The PS3 is what, atleast 6 years old and the online service looks and operates exactly the same as it did at launch. You want to keep things fresh and entertaining, what Sony is doing with PSN is sloppy and just not good for business. Seems they didn't factor in people having taste, cause obviously people with eat slop as long as it free right?
