I'm interested in seeing what it can do. Graphics haven't really advanced since the 360. Every game feels the same to me.

@SuperLib This is more due to the restrictions the 360 hardware has, try the same game on a more powerful platform like PC and you will see massive advances. Battlefield 3 is a great example for this.

I know PCs are a lot better, but there's something about the game mechanics/physics that just hasn't improved in my opinion. Most of the new features seem to be gimmicks, like special abilities or items. I was playing Assassin's Creed 2 the other night (free download on XBOX Live by the way) and it just seemed like the way the characters move is the same as in 2006.

The delays affect Belgium, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Sweden and Switzerland. The company said it hoped to launch the device in those countries “as soon as possible in 2014.”

I don't think these people will wait that long for the software correction =they have waited long enough already. -Expect alot of internet auction buyers.
