Switched On: Hard drives face hard truths

Engadget: "Indeed, the Xbox One will load disc-based games onto the hard drive automatically. Both Sony and Microsoft will also offer access via the cloud. In fact, following up on its purchase of Gaikai, Sony plans to offer a range of gaming from the cloud to multiple platforms. This may include older titles that it cannot support on the PlayStation 4 due to a lack of native backward compatibility. If such capability is expected to work, why bother to have hard drives in these consoles at all? Indeed, hardware makers of many stripes are starting to ask that question." (PC, PS4, Xbox One)

the xbox can support external hard drives, saying it isnt upgradeable outright leaves people with the impression that you literally are capped out at 500gb which isnt the case. but i digress

Yes, because that box isn't big enough already. Now you want to take up more space with an external drive and that damn power brick. Lovely. It's 2014. It's time for Microsoft engineers to get their s@$@ together and take some lessons from Sony engineers on how to build a console that doesn't overheat in a reasonably sized form factor.
