Microsoft Announces Fastest Gaming Console Yet

Episode 1378

Microsoft Announced their new Scorpio Game Console, which will be faster, stronger, more powerful, and vapor cooled! It will be capable of over a trillion floating point operations per second. It has a graphics processing unit with 40 units clocked at 1.1Ghz. It has an 8-core processor. 12GB of DDR5 RAM with 8GB for games, and 4GB for background processes. Leo says it's more powerful than any computer you've likely had in the house. Microsoft is promising 4K, but have stopped short of saying it will play at 60fps.

Why can't I sign up for my Playstation 4 account?

Episode 1094

Russell from Show Low, AZ
Playstation 4

Russell bought a Playstation 4 and he can't create a Playstation ID because it says it's "not allowed." Sony doesn't know why it's happening. Leo says if trying a different ID isn't working, then it could be an issue with his IP address being blocked. Leo says that sometimes an abusive user can cause so much trouble that Sony will ban the ID and nobody can use it. That may be the case here. If the IP address is attached to the ID, then that IP may now be associated with the banned account now.

Can I run my XBox 360 through my XBox One?

Episode 1035

Jason from Tampa, FL
Xbox 360

Jason wants to know if he can hook up an old Xbox 360 to his XBox One and play older games while daisy chained to the TV. Leo says that the XBox One has a "pass through" feature to watch TV from the cable box, and there's no reason why he couldn't pass the video signal from the XBox 360 to it.

Kotaku has an article about it. The only issue may be lag or latency. But he could also just hook them up directly as most HDTVs have multiple HDMI connections.

Can my XBox One play old games?

Tommy from New Orleans, LA

Episode 1035

Tommy's wife just bought him an XBox One, but he's wondering if he can he play older games on it. Leo says no, he can't. So should he keep his old 360 then? Leo says he should. He won't have issues getting online either. The fact is, though, that the XBox 360 is almost as good as the XBox One, he just won't have the media options that the new model provides. Moving forward, the hot games will only be on the XBox One.

The Xbox One Is More Than Just Gaming

Episode 1034

Xbox One

Leo got the XBox One and he says that gaming has gotten so sophisticated that you need the reflexes of a teenager all the time to play it. But one thing he thought was really interesting is that you can see what your friends are doing if you follow them. You can follow Leo at "Chief Twit Leo".

Other great features include voice commands, and since the Xbox is always listening, you can just turn it on with a word. Through Kinect, it recognizes you and logs you in, which is making people a bit nervous because it's always on, always listening. Very 1984.
