That controller looks like a prototype, not a finished design.

This announcement seemed like such a disappointment. And I'm a huge playstation fan/owner.

Not sure what you mean here. No Xbox game I know of requires the second player to sign in in order to play local multiplayer. In fact it isn't even possible AFAIK for two people to sign in to the same Xbox simultaneously. All you do is connect the second controller and you can play multiplayer.

That's true for XBOX, not XBOX 360. This is the original XBOX 360 I'm talking about, not the newer ones. In the games I've played (Halo 3, Black Ops 2, and others), you need to sign into a guest account (not necessarily XBOX Live) to play.

Looks pretty finished to me.

I've only used the Xbox 360, which is the current Xbox, so that's what I'm talking about. With the Xbox 360, one person does need to sign in, though most people will probably setup their Xbox to sign into their profile automatically on startup, so this is really just a one time task when you first buy your Xbox. To play a game in split screen mode, all you do is connect the second controller and off you go.

If you're saying it's the original Xbox, i.e. the one before the Xbox 360, which had this problem, then I'm not sure how that's relevant now. The Xbox 360 has been out for 8 years now, so the original Xbox is ancient history in tech years.

I wonder if they will support booting other OS's on this thing considering that its x86. Selling these as a hybrid pc/console would be a great opportunity especially for college students. I could see that as a huge selling point. This thing would have no problem running windows/linux.
Except it's 7 core not 8, and my 360 has a better GPU and can play almost any game without lag. Sorry but as much as I hate Microsoft, I think they are the best option when it comes to gaming.

Referring to the playstation 4 not the playstation 3. I don't own either console so it doesn't matter to me.

You are comparing the PlayStation 4 to the XBOX 360? That... is fair?
