They both will do TV, online media, social sharing, ect. So what does that mean now? News have been coming in that the XB1 is gaining momentum in sales and there was even a repor that it will "ship" more than the PS4. So expect shortages for both consoles this holiday season.

And 500$ for a new console? <BR> <BR> EDIT: Just found out that the footage showed for Battlefield was actually being played on the PC! lolwtfbbq Mon, 10 Jun 2013 15:42:02 EST XBOX One and PS4 http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x13184x53601679 So IGN made a people choice type voting on the next gen console.

Does anyone have that device. I went to the website and it looks really good. Make your treadmill change inlcine and speeds and you can down load your stats to the website and keep track over all workouts that you do. There are also Julian Michael programs where she will speak to you through the speakers on select treadmills and change the speed and incline. I wonder how that would be like.

Let us know here. In a CNN report which featured Red Dead Redemption it was stated that most gamers do not finish games they started due to lack of interest. I just dont like when people that do not know the industry makes crazy assumptions like that.

The last chapter of the Ezio saga. Gamercom has an exclusive first look at the first 10 mintes of the game. Starting with the horse carraige escape Ezio finds himself injured and unable to climb buildings he must find a different way to pentatrate the strong hold of the Templars. Setting up traps, exploding diversion bombs and other tactics as he follows the trail to his target. Looks very intersting so far. I cant wait for this game.

I have been using this as motivation to go out and walk lately, LoL. Yes, I'm 32 and walk my Pokemon :P Laugh and point if you must, but it is the motivation I need to go for a walk sometimes. <BR> I just came in from (my second!) walk of the day and was transferring my data to my DS and realized how silly it was, but thought I'd share in case I am not alone <em>334</em> Mon, 8 Aug 2011 20:51:07 EST Very Inspiring 73 yr old http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=915x13184x43389856 Check out this story about a 73yr old bodybuilder and personal trainer what inspiration <BR> <BR> <link>ernestineshepherd.net/?p=4 </link> Fri, 5 Aug 2011 19:47:40 EST Modern Warfare 3 or Battlefield 3 http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x13184x43328951 The debate has been heated on this topic. Does MW3 has what it takes to hold off BF3 from taking the top spot from them. MW3 does not look like they improved on Infinity Wards Model for the game. I would have to say that they just added in my mind new maps the last game. But Battlefield has done a complete overhaul of the game itself. Do you think that they have a MW3 killer on their hands or is this all hype.
