Interesting article, thanks. Definitely seems like the isolation of the OS's and Apps has really made updates more streamlined. Pretty awesome that they are able to deliver fresh ideas and fixes into the system on a monthly basis.

Big fan of the multitasking features as well, especially now that they fixed the volume issue. Been casually watching the NFL draft in the side window while playing games this week and it is great. Pretty cool to see that Nutjitsu game even works to play as snapped. Hope we get more casual games like that where we can play them snapped during long load times and multiplayer lobbies.

Actually Nutjitsu doesn't let you play snapped, Major Nelson lied! You can snap it, but it pauses. Lame. They need to make games where you can play snapped. Regardless, snapped apps are awesome!

Yes, I like the multitasking abilities, I love plaing Spider-Man pause it and play a game of TitanFall and go back to Spider-man until the Xbox tells me that the online session is back on and then I switch back. And the smooth frame rate is also true. I love how smooth the games fell. I not saying that my ps4 is not smooth I'm talking of the total package. Games in the Xbox look great, maximum overdrive looks awesome, so did Rise and forza. In truth, I'm happy with both of my machines.

o yeah, so true, that silky smooth framerate of titanfall http://i.imgur.com/5GO6akE....

@ dazz, great pic, have you played it? I haven't experienced difficulties yet, that's not to say that there isn't . You have to admit, that pic was taken during an online game and there is a lot going on in that screen. But it is true, the game is not as smooth as butter.
