Just as long as they don't trip over their own podium and set fire to the building they should be fine.

I still have about 1000 PS2 games to finish before I start finishing my Xbox games.

No don't announce an announcement MS you silly ducks. Much better if they just rolled back a curtain three days before and went 'Ta-Da!' and danced around a may pole.

Honestly they need new pr guys, there's just going to be nonsensical conjecture over the possibilities, more rumours with evidence or real sources for the next three weeks, my way, everyone goes 'Oh that's spiffing, quick march gents, new eggbox this friday'.

I hope this is going to be an actual reveal, unlike PS4's "let's just show the controller" thing. What will make me rage is if they just say a lot of vague stuff and then "find out more at E3". Still, I'll be glued to the Live Event Player on May 21.

General question. Is it unethical to ban someone because they irritate me?

Any answers are welcome....

This better not clash with Springwatch, it's usually on near/at the end of May.

I'd do what Gamefaqs do and invent a stupid rule. :wink:

I'm trying to tell myself it's not really the most exciting news if i think of it along the lines of they're telling us a date they're going to tell us something, but then if it's not exciting why am i checking where i am/what i'll be doing on said date? :)

Only thing i'm not looking forward to are the inevitable dicks who'll turn up and complain no matter what - MS could add a feature that'll print free legal money every day and for some it wouldn't print enough - don't bring me down internet haters, don't you dare...! With E3 following soon after i reckon it'll deffo be a slow burn staggered release, so i'll be focusing on what's shown, rather than what's not...

Kernow - go for it, 'that' is one of the things specifically related to my comment the other night... A troll in sheeps clothing. A very ugly sheep at that.

Ooooooo am excited, cannot wait. I was wondering whether we will be able to keep our existing gamer tags and scores or whether it will be a fresh start. Is it even going to have achievement points? So many questions and so long to wait :)

It'll probably restart like the transition from the original xbox to the 360. Same gamertags though guaranteed. We'll have to wait a month. :mrgreen:
