But here's the thing --- THERE'S A CHEAPER PS4 VERSION IN THE WORKS WITH A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT FEATURE SET TOO!!!!!

I don't have any insider knowledge.  Just history to back it.  And I'm guessing the price point will drop around the same time the XBone's does. 

(Someone should really mark this post for future reference and just watch how smart I am.  Seriously.  I'm a rocket surgeon.)

It's the never ending rat race. There will always be new bundles, lite SKU's, collector editions, color options, and a never ending supply of alternative paint schemes.

How many did the 360 have in its ten year run? Something like 12 or 15 variations?

I'll wait till we get closer to an actual release date before I get excited.

I swear to god I will bring forth a rage so complete in it's fury that your innards would boil from the sheer amount of energy pouring from your monitor.

Rook said everything that can be said.

I knew they were going to release a titanfall bundle, and I really planned on getting it....but goddam it looks fckin ugly....looks like it was done by someone who designs walmart school folders for preteens.

You do realize those were fakes... he even said it in the video.

No I did not realize they were fake, I did not even watch the video. Thank God.

But then again, judging from the Titanfall official xbox controller.....I fear that the fake xbox design may not be far off. that controller looked like @#$% as well.

AAAAAAAAAAAAND..... this is why I'm holding out on buying (especially) the XBONE.  Holding out hope for a Kinnectless, removable/upgradable HDD version.  Though if not for destiny then certainly for the Halo 2 anniversary strongly rumored for november 11th this (AAAAAAAAAHHOMGOMGOMG) year.  Special edition rumored to have Halo 3&4 XBONE ports, too.

Today I heard from someone I know who works on Live's back end . They actually have working Xb1 models with Bluetooth & no ROM drives out in the wild and in testing (still has the kinect). I'm getting some pictures from him of early prototypes.. I'll post them as soon as I  hear back from him. Also the titan version of the xb1 is still coming out... It may be delayed though. They are working on a new wrapped theme for it.

Do you know what the bluetooth will be used for? Headsets?

Almost impossible.

Sony doesn't own bluray. They are apart of an organization of about 30 different companies that hold the rights to blueray and they license it to anyone willing to pay. Sony was the first company to push bluray at a more affordable price $600(PS3) vs $1200+. That's about it.

well im not saying sony pulled some patent out of their @#$% im just saying maybe its not good to have a device, which was,  at the least popularised by your direct competitor.

much like apple dropping samsung components.

i think i may have invented a word.

Then again they add another largely sony associated feature... blue tooth. dem some strange times we livin in.

WEll I hope you realize that a BD-drive-less version means no used games and no reselling the games you bought.

If they do release a discless version, but bundled with kinect, one would be very stupid to buy it, when you can have the version with a BD drive where you can sell/buy used games. The prices on the xbl marketplace are still stupidly high. I would not want to be dependant on MS when it comes to buying games. A discless version is kinda a workaround to get the retarded DRM back or at least the equivalent situation that we would have if DRM was implemented in the BD drive version.

This... But don't worry I will be buying 4 before the end of the year. Glad to see the price will drop.

Lots of family wanting ONE's!
