    On second thought, I'll just save the money and pick up a GTX 780 instead. :)

    Well, if you don't feel like making a full article from scratch, there is a bunch of other stuff you can do. We have a bunch of http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Category:Stub Stubs that can use fleshing out, or http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Category:Cleanup existing articles that need some editing to match the layout of the http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/PCGamingWiki:Sample_article Sample article.
     
    Or, if you see a game page that doesn't exist or is lacking a fix you know, simply add it!
     
    Always good to see fresh faces around here, and welcome to the wiki!

    I'm intrigued frankly by the thing. The responsiveness of it looks cool, I like the natural langue stuff of being able to talk to your xbox and tell it to do stuff. The Controller isn't a huge redesign, and I'm happy about that. Being able to snap apps and skype while gaming is pretty dang cool. I like seeing multitasking being a big part of the One. I also like ht etv overlay stuff.
     
    I'm mildly worried about the implications of having an potentially always on microphone and webcam in my living room, and I don't like registering games to a particular user account. I'm also kinda bummed about the lack of backwards compatibility too. Looks like requiring a game to be online isn't a requirement, but the option is there on a per game basis. I hope that part flops. I'm also surprised that it doesn't appear that MS is making multiplayer a silver tier part of XBL and making gold tier more like PSPlus.
     
    From a pure hardware standpoint I'm pretty excited, but this surely won't be a day one purchase till I see how all those caveats play out. If reactivating a game on a different account is cheap, some cheap backwards compatibility solution comes out, and I can get over the creep factor of having my xbox always watching me, I may pick it up before too long though.
     
     
    What do you guys think about the reveal?

    I'm already at a good place with my PC. Doesn't need an upgrade for a while, and I have disposable income. So :P

    Newmansan got a reaction from Jabphash in PCGamingWiki Wikipedia Article   
    I added some info on how we've been featured on several big gaming related sites.
     
    A short history section couldn't hurt to increase notability.
     
    We need to flesh this out more and make ourselves seem important. I'm worried that if we don't, our page will get marked as spam/non notable/etc.

    You pretty much got it right Andy. The -san comes from the fact that I was heavy into anime back in highschool.

    Newmansan got a reaction from Expack3 in Multi-lingual pages?   
    1. Well, all the text on all the pages should be in English ('cept individual user pages perhaps).
    2. I think a tenable policy is that we would greatly prefer an English language screenshot over those of other languages, but a different language screenshot is more informative than no screenshot at all.
