    Specs are pretty much all I care about, so I like that it’s the first item highlighted.

    Very detailed and comprehensive. Excellent information gathering work.

    Thank you for this great article! So many questions clarified and so many things I did not think to ask elucidated! There’s also a list of upcoming games here guys

    Bookmarked. Needs a tab for barely contained excitement.

    Hope it works with my Astro A40 Headset!

    Specs are way over my head. I’m more interested in the games, and the “restrictions” (ahem – M$).
