It's time for this week's Constantly Calibrating episode, "Calibrating Xbox Reveal". The runner-up for episode name is of course "Calibrating MocapDog".
The Xbox One was announced today and with it came a lot of press over what Microsoft did, or in this case did not, do right with the system's debut. Some may argue a lack of actual gaming hurt the launch. Others might praise the concept of their new "snap point" system. There's also our own questions of what's the deal with compatibility with Xbox Live Arcade games, or the crummy hard drive space.
There's also the question about why Microsoft hasn't paid us for the brilliant achievement points vs. challenge points vs. title system that needs to be implemented.
