I have both PS3 and 360. All my gamer friends gather on 360 to play. A few of them have XB1 now and they can't join up on games. WTF? Also, they don't like the new interface (UI) for chatting/party with friends. The hot topic in the community is whether XB1 will revert back to the friendly and non-glitchy 360 UI. I personally don't like the PS3 interface and controller, so those have to be major improvements for me. Doing parties on PS3 is always more difficult and sometimes the audio didn't work and we had to use our cell phones to communicate during a game.
Here is a recent and useful article on the subject of XB1. LINK
I'll probably by both models but I'll wait a year or so for more games and for the kinks to get ironed out.

Bill O'Brien is touting every game as a "bowl" game. This game could only be the Euthanasia Bowl. Both teams begging for the other to end their agony. In the end, PSU barely showed more life than Michigan and was spared.

|3 years 40 weeks ago||I've notice DB on the sideline during every game||
usually 3 feet away from Hoke. DB has been among the first to congratulate Hoke after the wins and he talks or listens in to Denard when he was out. Not sure what to make of it. Enthusiatic hands on boss like Mark Cuban or an annoying interfering boss also like Mark Cuban.

make fun of the other "experts" or hosts.
Overall when four of them sit together on the panel, seems like the View, but only with a little more testosterone.

|3 years 44 weeks ago||Was RR going to be fired by DB||
regardless of the Miss State bowl outcome?
Did Bacon talk to DB before or after the "end of the year" interview with RR?
I recall DB's exit interview with RR was 4+ hours. What did they talk about. A decision was not made till the next day, was it b/c RR pleaded for more time/consideration or b/c DB wanted to think more about the decision to fire RR.
DB later stated that he looked at the whole season/tenure and seemed to emphasize the lack of defense and the cellar dwelling stats. RR stated that he wish he knew earlier that he was going to be fired before the bowl so he and his staff could look for other jobs. Seems like the decision to fire was made before the bowl game.
So, did he talk to DB about the firing/decision process? What was RR's take on the firing and what happened behind the scenes last 2 weeks of RR at UM.

are my issue. When the O gets stuffed in a couple of 3 and outs or is not productive in the 1st half, Borges comes out with back to back to back Denard designed runs in the 3rd. Happened in ND game and the Western game. It happened a little earlier in the Eastern game. Eventually, Denard will get a long run as he did in Eastern, but will that work in B1G play? We will see I suppose.

|3 years 46 weeks ago||I'm trying to understand that line up with Beyer||
Is it an orchestrated teaching moment for the freshman or others inexperienced?
Way to instill accountability for all players on the depth chart?
Saving the beef for ND?
Previous year, the defense played poorly with same guys but they were kept in the game. Is it better to rotate this much as a way to find a playmaker like Herron? Two defensive TD guarantees him some more playing time this week, doesn't it?
Size alone, BWC and Ash would at least plug up more of the holes, I would hope.
