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.

      Finished Ultraman on Netflix, the story was good but it left too much unanswered... and the biggest travesty was the CGI. Holy cow it was wildly inconsistent and mostly all bad. The distance shots looked like some PS1 stuff, like they didnt know what shading was. They spent all the money on the final fight which was awesome, and then the last few minutes got really bad.

      I need to buy a lawn tractor soon.. maybe this weekend. The last lawn tractor I owned was a piece of crap hand me down that nickel and dimed me to death until I got rid of it and got a decent push mower instead. But my yard now has just over an entire acre of just grass. No way in hell I can push mow that. I might get a Cub Cadet or John Deere tractor. I need to see what might be on sale. I had the lawn mowed at the end of last year right when we moved in and its $40 per mow. x_x

      I never watched the original Fruit Basket because the description just sounded too silly. The premise of all anime is that at least one of the protagonists has a flaw. Luffy can't swim, Inuyasha turns human on the full moon, etc. I just generally dislike when a flaw is so overwhelming it's a massive inconvenience. BUT Since the simuldub started Friday I'll be watching the reboot. It seems to have a huge following and the first ep was quite good.

      Watched Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse tonight and I have to say the movie was spectacular and definitely lived up to all the hype surrounding it. Probably one of my favorite superhero movies now and I fully understand why it won an Oscar.
      Story was great from start to finish, though I really don't know what to think of the animation style it certainly worked in this movies favor (a little jarring at first but I was definitely starting to feel it toward the end), and while I'm not usually into the music used into the show I have to say the soundtrack is fucking awesome. Kinda wish I would of went to see this in the theater but that didn't really diminish my enjoyment of the movie.
      Really hope we get another one like this (seems there is a sequel of sorts in the works and a few spin-offs as well) because it definitely deserves one. I also have to say the Spider-Man Noir is probably going down as my favorite Spider-Man.
