I really want to get the xb1 because I like the exclusives better and all my best friends are getting it, but I read somewhere that MS overclocked their CPU at the last minute which sounds like they haven't tested it very much. Can someone please ease my mind?

I'd like to think that they wouldn't take a risk because they wouldn't want to lose a lot of money again. That is their motivation to make sure it works well which makes me feel better.

Just as much as PS4 owners will have to worry about the red line error. Which is little to none.

It's Microsoft, they constantly repeat mistakes.

Best Windows ever, Windows 8!

Particularly as the PS4 doesn’t even have a red LED there just a blue and white…
Wishing they would release Starfox 2 on the VC...

Does that mean we should expect PS4 to have both DRE and YLOD because they keep repeating mistakes?

Nope. Warranty.

I'm too busy being cooler than you.

Stop it. Don't talk about things you may not know.
