Cheating has gone hand-in-hand with gaming for centuries. Video games in particular often have cheats built right into the game.

Funny, they're number 9 on the list, under such classics as "wrist watch", "lawnmower", and "electric skateboard".

...And yet it's the only gaming related technology that was recognized....


Xbox One is the only gaming product among the winners – a tremendous feat for the team....

The Popular Mechanics Breakthrough Awards acknowledge products and innovators across technology, medicine, space exploration, automotive design, and beyond that are setting benchmarks in design and engineering.

During the selection process, editors from Popular Mechanics consulted a wide range of experts and tested hundreds of products throughout the year to arrive at their “game-changing” selections.

'Each year’s recipients are awe-inspiring as they shape our future through life-changing ideas and innovative products,' said James B. Meigs, editor-in-chief of Popular Mechanics. Some of the other winners in both the Product and Innovator categories include the Pebble Watch, Curiousity Mars Science Laboratory, Indego Exoskeleton and the Moringa-Seed Water Filter."

"Gamers may have taken issue with the Xbox One's price ($500) and paywall restrictions (some features require a $50 per year subscription), but technologically it's a huge upgrade from its predecessor," the magazine said. "The platform is so advanced that developers have barely begun to grasp all its possibilities."

That...doesn't sound like a good thing this close to launch.

Console wars are like pissing contests. So yeah.

It's just fancy talk for launch games not using the full power of the system.
You know, the thing that happen with every launch title for every new console...
