With the news that the Xbox One will be getting a 53MHz bump to its GPU speed having failed to impress gamers, an increasingly frantic Microsoft today revealed that the console would also feature go-faster stripes.

It's fake. All of this website's articles are fake and it's stupid, not funny. I mean come on: "Rockstar confident only 19% of GTA:V players will commit murder".

Why does this site even get approved?!

The stripe is part of smoke and mirror

crxss1877d ago

I heard from a legitimate source that the xbox one has a muffler now as well

Do you not understand the concept of satire? We're meant to understand they're not being serious, you don't need to explain it to us.

on a different note it seems the ps4 has the high strips while x1 has the low strips at gamestop. x1 preorders capped at 40 , and ps4 at 140 and still taken in more. from my gamestop. in nj I know the manager there , he said hes surprised how many sony are pumping out and he said a sony rep said sony is not playing next gen there in it to win it big time .

take it easy dude enjoy life

Can we please get rid of this satire shit? It's not funny, it's just trolling for hits under the guise of "satire".

delicia1877d ago

This is NEWS 4 gamers, but suddenly, users are not aware of that. No wonder this site's been nothing but stupid articles and no game updates lately.

overrated441877d ago

Because it's satire, people enjoy reading The Onion due to the ridiculousness. Maybe you should take things less seriously and try to laugh. I think there are enough people out there fighting this moronic "console war" for you to put down your gun for a day.

pixelsword1877d ago

An extra 53 Mhz boost AND stripes?

Day one!



Dagobert1877d ago

Fact: Your at 50% agree and 50% disagree's. Thought I'd mention the obvious.

bobtheimpaler1877d ago

ROFL. Do you seriously not have a sense of humour?

fr0sty1877d ago

I guess Cam has never heard of satire. Honestly I think we need more of that in gaming news. So much of what goes on in this industry is worthy of a little mockery, and more importantly many of the people around here seem like they could use a good laugh.

if it had a spoiler and duel exhaust, Id pre-order 5!

This upgrade, just like the cloud, will make Xbone be able to reach 10 billion teraflops.

Aaaaaannnndddd this is the hottest article on N4G.

Confirming my suspicion and validating my beliefs. Thanks, N4P!

Probably the same reason why The Onion is? it's hit and miss but some can be good for a laugh.

zpoc1876d ago

here's another statement for you to unravel and explain to the world:

Super Genius internet commenter deftly surmises that article clearly labeled 'satire' is indeed "fake".

2 stripes or One?

edit/ ps. @Cam977 (we know it's fake, just chill a bit)

aceitman1877d ago

so can I safely say sony can make theres go faster too and bump up the gpu

cesuf1877d ago (Edited 1877d ago )

I wouldn't say safety, but maybe and depends on how much. The more you overclock your gpu or cpu, the more power is used and heat is created. But a small increase, I don't see why not.

Tomorrow headline: Digital Foundry tech analysis proves that vertical stripes on Xbox One make it look less chunky than PS4.

yeahokchief1877d ago

They're speed holes! They make the GPU go faster!

This seems like the gaming version of 'The Onion'.

One of the other titles that made me lol:

"Microsoft asks those purchasing 360 games to return to store every 24 hours with receipt to prove they didn’t steal them"

That's crazy, everyone knows only flame decals make things go faster

Heisenburger1877d ago

And it must absolutely have a red paint job.


cyguration1877d ago

Well, it has to be flame decals with a super-charger, otherwise people won't take it serious at all.

kneon1877d ago

That's just silly, stripes and flames won't make it go faster.

You need to jack up the rear end and put oversized tires on the back. Then it will go faster because it's always going down hill ;)

And/or weld horizontal metal bars pointing backwards.
