Did everybody see the Michael Pachter Geoff Keighley interview ? He basically said that he doesn't think any 3rd party publisher is going to opt out of giving you the option of giving a game to your friend. He claims that Microsoft isn't going to put any restrictions on it, except for the fact that the game can only be given to one friend, and it's a one time deal. However, Microsoft does have this quote:In addition, third party publishers can enable you to give games to friends.
So, there is always that option that a third party might opt out of that, and say that you can't give the game to a friend. Pachter thinks no 3rd party is dumb enough to go out on a limb like that. What do you guys think?
Wow, I just saw this quote from the Xbox 1 Pre-Order page:•Some games not transferable and have no resale value; restrictions on games usage apply.
Ouch. Must be very difficult for them to officially list that, but I guess they have to do it, lol

There will be external tuner boxes that you can buy for about $99 that will work perfectly with Xbox One. If the NFL integration on Sunday on CBS and FOX, and Sunday Night on NBC is proper, then I'll definitely buy one of those external tuners. There was even some talk that Microsoft could sell some type of dongle that would include a OTA tuner. However, considering their stake in Comcast, I really doubt they would sell a tuner themselves.
