I take all this stuff with alot of salt.
The console looks alright but that controller looks unwieldly and really suspicious. Ill believe it when i see it.

The console is beautifully designed, but god that controller is fuck ugly. Other than that one little issue, I am happy with this. I am sure that if you want to put your DVD's on it, you can transfer them to somehow, or they will offer an external optical. Other than that, buy a dvd player.

As I don't have a 360, the lack of an Optical Drive for backcompatability is not an issue; I have a PS3 so that can be used for Bluray and my back compatible games (seriously, just release DW3/3XL, FFX and NFSU2 on PSN with trophies and I'm a happy bunny, maybe even all the Spyro and Crash Games), especially if the Sony Orbis doesn't work with them.

I hope more games have Cloud gaming profiles; so that like NFS MW 2012, I can play PC or PS3 and carry on in the same save. That way I can play MW4 or BF4 on PC/Orbis/720 etc.

I hope Online only or Cloud Games aren't required. I get so pissed with my Emily's Chromebook because of that Cloud reliance. I don't mind being able to Cloud Profile Sync so that I can get trophies/achievements and progress on all saves. I'd have loved to be able to trade the PS3 save of my Skyrim Main to PC.

Yes. The information came straight from Microsoft, their Affiliates and/or the Dev's themselves.

I do not post wild speculation. (mostly domesticated or at least trained )

No optical drive?

In the first 2 pictures there is an eject button and an optical drive slot similar to the PS3 or Wii's.

As to the idea of a SSD cart system, I'm not buying it. Using flash media, like Sony and Nintendo do with the Vita and 3DS/DS seems to be much more profitable. Plus all the games would become bulky and difficult to ship/transport if it went the form of a cart.

I can believe the idea of Microsoft doing Digital Downloads and streaming for all their games, I just don't know how much parents and the consumer market is going to support it at this time (we all remember Onlive, right?). Plus many publishers are aware of how much they increase sales by in store advertising in places like Gamestop (just look at Borderlands, 2K openly admits the game wouldn't have done as well with out them) so this would be a HUGE blow to all but their largest (read: AAA) titles. Finally, many people are not going to want to pay a service fee (Xbox Live Gold) after buying their games just to play them.

Personally, I don't buy it. The first 2 pictures showing optical drives is enough for me not to buy it

No micro wave? I'm out then.

7000 radeon series? Cutting edge? That series is going to be a antique within the next year or two.

If rumours are to be believed then you'll not be purchasing any of the next gen consoles, depending which route they've gone down with this. There's clearly a disc drive in that picture SMG posted so the rumour is more likely to be false.

All the console makers are under pressure to crush the secondary market for obvious reasons. Right now the big contenders are Blu-Ray drive with the ability to lock out second hand games (but the ability to pay a fee to transfer that second hand game to your system) or no drive at all and online content.

A 7000 Series AMD is on par with the rumours for the PS4 as well. People need to understand that the specs in consoles are not the same as the specs in PC's. A 7000 series is a huge jump up from the 360.
