How close do you sit in front of the TV when gaming?
details
http://i.imgur.com/4h1lCzl.jpg
I've been playing a lot of BF4 lately and had an interesting realization. I sit entirely way too close to the television when I play games. I think my original justification for it is that I wear glasses, so I need to sit closer to see. Except I wear glasses when I play, so it makes that point moot.
Anyway, I sit about 3 to 5 feet away from the 32" TV that I use for gaming. I'm sure that it's not good for my eyes, but hey. How close do you find yourself sitting in...

Xbox 360 Network Storage Server Idea
details
Many households, organizations, and events have multiple Xbox 360s being used. Transferring content from one to the other frequently through Cloud Storage or flash drives can get repetitive.
What if there were a NAS (Network attached storage) server that could store all the data used for all Xbox 360s on the local network? Things like profiles, game saves, movies, and even games and DLC could be installed on it. It would become the assigned device of the digital download licences. It would be... Read more →

Price of the Next Generation of Video Games
details
Talk of the next generation of home consoles is starting to appear on nearly every video game website. It got me thinking about what the price will be per game. With every generation, the prices of games have increased by $10.
Now I don't know about everyone out there, but $59.99 is my limit and the game has to amazing for me to even consider purchasing it at that price. I do most of my shopping on Amazon.com and I wait for their video game sales.
Yet I can't say that I feel confident that games...

The big dashboard update for the Xbox 360 has begun rolling out. What are your impressions?
details
After a bit of a delay the new fall update is rolling out. For those of you who have gotten the update what are you impressions so far? Do you like the the new metro look?

Edit: looks a big change was the Netflix UI and it's not too bad. I like being able to select audio subtitles as an option now. However I can't seem to identify how one restarts a currently watched episode. I wonder if anyone else is finding different changes that are for the better or worst yet.

Xbox 360 hits 55 million units
details
Microsoft announced that the Xbox 360 has hit 55 million units sold, and that its sales are accelerating not only disproportionately to its competition, but to any console ever at this period in its lifecycle. The Xbox team released a super interesting normalized sales graph that tracks sales progress from launch through year nine of the last few console generations: http://static.flickr.com/5062/5793291459_447e283c3... The interesting trends I'm seeing here: the Wii, as we know, has flamed... Read more →

Got an Xbox 360 from my nephew that had a red ring of death and was outside of the warranty period.
details
I used an online guide to repair it myself, and it actually worked. It's been over a month and haven't had any problems. I was going to get a PS3 and maybe an AppleTV, but both those purchases have been put on hold, at least as long as this Xbox keeps working. Now, if I can only get a Kinect sensor before Christmas....

So after some major hassel with att I was able to get my Xbox working as a Uverse receiver and watch TV on my Xbox.
details
Since this service is so new dont expect an easy install by att. The first time I called I was on the phone for a good 20 minutes before att was able to understand what I was even talking about. The catch is you have to pay a ridiculous $55 installation fee for a tech to come to your house and put a disk in your Xbox and press one button. On top of that you also have to pay for a $99 hardware kit that's just a Xbox Media Remote. All of these fees are gouging users when att could easily send... Read more →

I am moving into a new apt and am working on setting up with my electronics and such will be.
details
I was thinking of keeping it pretty simple with a cable box DVR, Xbox360, and then I was thinking about investing in a netbox and installing XBMC up in there so that I can play old video games and get all of the streaming goodness that comes with XBMC. I was thinking of ditching the cable box DVR and going with Tivo instead, but other than that, is there anything that I am missing? Any suggestions?

The only reason I will not get the New Xbox 360 is because I actually use the memory card slot and have since the beginning.
details
My girlfriend and I have our profiles on two cards and take them between the bedroom and living room xboxes and sometimes over to friends houses and her house in another city. I understand you can use USB sticks now, but there is no need for it so far since everyone I know has the older style Xbox 360.... other than that, the new model is pretty impressive. I wish it didn't have the power brick but oh well.... I'll probably just get an Xbox Elite once they drop the price since... Read more →

make a device/platform to which content creators can latch on to, the way magazine publishers are limpetting themselves to the iPad. The problem is that no one has yet produced a product that can fully replace a laptop connected to a TV/projector. Today, there are three main options for doing this: 1) Apple TV/Xbox 360 These both have pretty much the same story to them: you buy content from the respective stores, through the device, then watch it on your TV. Apple TV can transfer content from... Read more →
