Xbox One controller is still powered by 2 AA batteries. TF? Dumb
Kinect does look pretty cool though

I think I prefer this over the PS4's non-removable batteries as I like just popping in a fresh battery from the charger instead of plugging the controller into the console. I'm sure there will be battery packs available for purchase as well. I agree that a removable rechargeable battery should be included with the controller, however.

Microsoft have now backtracked on the drm issues, and the always online issue,

Needed to be done, could of been disastrous if they hadn't got rid of the drm

Here's the official Xbox statement
http://news.xbox.com/2013/06/update

I heard someone say online weeks ago that Xbox One will have all of these horrible features and then take them away and claim "You talked, we listened" and try to gain people that way. That happened exactly.

Edit:
Found it!

I left work at about 11 last night and two guys were already waiting in line with a tent. It made me a bit sad.

I don't think any of us bought a new console. Ben will probably order one for himself just because he is silly like that.

Does anyone have plans to buy one or even know of anyone that bought one?

Build a PC instead? We can order the parts and then put it together over Christmas.
