I think MS still tried to push their date ahead, but this guy is saying they just went into full production? WTF? I guess that's because they changed it so much it actually required hardware tweaks. Now that the finalized version is being mass produced, If they can't get enough to the shelves, launching a week late and lacking supply is going to hurt them bad. Rushing the manufacturing process is asking for Next Gen RRoD.

Like the guy was saying in the video.. they tweaked the system again.. literally at the last minute. They boosted the CPU again and finally started production:

Xbox One CPU gets 150 MHz boost, console in 'full production'

 

The Xbox One was given a bit of a performance boost before going into full production, according to Yusuf Mehdi, corporate vice president of marketing and strategy for Microsoft's Interactive Entertainment Business. The next-gen console's CPU is now running at 1.75 GHz, an improvement from its previous 1.6 GHz clock speed.

Mehdi dropped the news at today's Citi Global Technology Conference while delivering a quick update on the system's progress and manufacturing.

"We're on track for launch in November," Mehdi said. "We'll announce a launch date shortly. We recently just went into full production, so we're now producing en masse Xbox One consoles. We've had real good progress on the system. In fact, we just updated the CPU performance to 1.75 GHz on top of the graphics performance improvement, so the system is really going to shine [and] the games look pretty incredible."

The performance boost follows a similar clock speed increase announced in August. Xbox chief product officer Marc Whitten said on a podcast that the Xbox One's GPU now runs at 853 MHz, up from 800 MHz.

 

It makes me wonder if Sony is already making PS4s.. I would hope so considering their massive pre-orders.

Seeing as Sony hasn't changed their system specs, I'm sure they'll meet all of their launch date preorders and at least 80% of the preorders they've received after that for the first month. If you preordered a month after it started however I'd expect you to wait to 2014.

      Sigh, I actually had to break down and get a FunimationNow account because half the shows I was planning on watching on CR got pulled yesterday (and I didn't actually realize Funi had the license). Going to go broke if this shit keeps happening >.<

      I still haven't had the time to play any of the GW2 halloween event and it ends tomorrow. but i did get the new entrance to my deck completed. I cut a good chunk of the wood fence off, reinforced it with pieces of 2x4, sanded it and reinforced adjacent parts of the deck with huge deck screws. I borrowed my friend's impact driver. Holy crap I need to buy one of these. That thing is beastly and amazing.

      Red Dead Redemption 2 is a testament to what single player games can be when you spend years developing them rather than 1-2 years and throw them out there with endless sequels. It would take me a few hours to hammer out my initial thoughts on this game. The level of detail is truly spectacular. My one concern was having to juggle all the health/stamina and weapon maintenance, but somehow Rockstar made it very uncumbersome to where its there, but you don't really have to worry about it every few minutes... I've gone hours without having to rest or use consumables. I've found myself getting lost in just tracking/hunting for hours. The amount of random side content is astonishing. After I get off work tomorrow, I'll have a whole week to dive into it and get lost. I'm really looking forward to it.

      The people that were renting the house I bought ended up breaking the stove and the master bathroom faucet. Over the last week I got my new gas stove, converted it to propane, got it hooked up, replaced my faucet... ran duct work and installed a new dryer vent.. the owner never installed a proper dryer vent. Their tenants must have been venting the dryer into insulation into the house.. wtf. I have more projects still.. I also have to change the faucet in the kitchen.  I hope I can finally be done with house work this weekend. My PS4 is still sitting in a plastic walmart bag and I have multiple boxes still left to unpack.

      I've been too busy with moving and stuff. I didn't realize facebook login crippled the front page of AC unless you were logged in. I don't know when that started happening, but I've disabled facebook and twitter login for now until I have the time to resolve the issue.
