Video Consoles & Games
I've had the same thoughts before about video games - no matter how rich or powerful you are, the chances are you'll be sitting down to the exact same version of Call of Duty or FIFA as everyone else who has forty quid in their pocket.

NXE is a vast improvement over the blades
I'm pretty happy with the NXE so far - okay the UK doesn't have the Netflix part but everything else seems to be an improvement. The way you can now delete games with 0 GS from your gamer history is a godsend, and it seems faster navigating through past achievements too.

However Wikipedia (I know, I know) reckon it's the 7th gen!
Wow - the SEVENTH generation. It's like being in the future.
