    Well, obviously this confirms my belief that the Mayans knew the best gaming console ever made would be released in 2012.

      The new Xbox will actually be powered by too much human emotion, resulting in it becoming self-aware, calling us all fags, and ragequitting by nuking the planet.

        But it will miss the earth completely, sending the nukes flying in to space, because it was using a gamepad to aim. :]

          Auto-aiming however alleviates this and Earth is bathed in a cleansing nuclear fire that results in the extinction of millions of overweight, couch potato, virgin gaming nerds.
