I've read quite a few articles about what the next Xbox is and is not supposed to have. None of it's confirmed. It's all just hearsay, which doesn't impress me at all.
But, rumor or not, some folks just get all up in arms. The article I read this morning was about how Microsoft is supposedly dropping disc drives in favor of "interchangeable solid-state card storage". [more info] So of course this lead to ranting about no backwards compatibility, proprietary storage, how this was going to be the first console that is worse than it's predecessor, blah blah blah. And let's not forget the other rumors: 2013 release, tablet controller, blu-ray discs, blocking used games, $500 pricetag...
But it's all rumor, conjecture, and speculation. So it all means exactly dick. Until the dev units ship for companies to start making games, we have no idea what to expect.
Oh, and don't give me crap about Merfred. He might have had one less leg and a slightly lower IQ than his brother, but he was still better and actually worth the extra money.
They're going pretty quick, but there are still Coloring Books to be had. And, I've added the "Buy-This-Print" button back to the comic page just below the comic itself.
