    Status Quo: Microsoft will release the Xbox One on November 22nd. The Hypothetical 180: As an homage to the Sega Saturn, Microsoft will announce tomorrow that the Xbox One is suddenly in stores and available for purchase right now.

    I predict that Microsoft will forgo the subtleties of the gaming market and become a private military company, massing it's power before turning against the United States government and installing Bill Gates onto a throne of absolute power! Oh and the throne will be made out of melted down Xbone's, game of thrones style.

    If I may present my own 2 cents to this discussion. Status Quo: Microsoft will release the Xbox One on November 22nd. The Hypothetical 180: On November 21st, Microsoft suddenly announces the changing of the next-gen console's title. The platform formerly known as Xbox One will henseforth be known as Eno Xobx. Merely days later, due to the apparent "popularity" of the name change, Microsoft announces that their company will drop their current name and adopt the title Tfosorcim. Consumers are sent into fits of rage as the vast majority of their computer's programs are now unpronounceable. False reports of concussions and brain damage come in from around the world as buyers of the Eno Xobx attempt to tell their friends about their newly acquired hardware.

    Status quo: Named XBox One Hypothetical 180: Microsoft changes the name to Infinity. Status quo: Plays Xbox One games Hypothetical 180: Full backward compatibility. Hypothetical 180 from hypothetical 180: In a really desparate move, Microsoft decides that backward compatibility for Microsoft consoles isn't enough, and integrates an update that allows the play of PS3, PS2, and PSX games. Everyone kisses the feet of the Xbox Infinity logo as its game library has now become infinitesimal.

    Hey Sullivan! I'll have you know that there is a lovely laserdisc player just down the hall, and I have watched a beautifully crisp version of Nightmare Before Christmas on in many a time. You're on thin ice Sullivan. You better watch yourself. Oh and great article. Final 180: Xbox One becomes a cable box that also plugs into your Xbox 360 to play games on your TV.

    I feel like this is the same joke repeated 15 times over. It's just "Microsoft didn't allow X feature, now they're only going to have said feature"

    Wonderful article to read after 4 hours of studying, I feel back at equilibrium now

    The status quo: On November 22nd they release the Xbox one The hypothetical 180: Its exactly the same console they pitched a few months ago (Lucas is my favorite part of Gamesradar...... everyone else is a close second)

    You get paid for this? ... So who can I directly give my check to?

    This article is amazing, bravo.

    The status quo: The XBOne is not a giraffe The 180: Microsoft will be attempting a bold, innovative strategy to bring in the casuals this November.

    You guys went overboard with this one and I LOVE IT

    This was mildly entertaining. Especially the fact that the "Day None" Photoshop is still dated 2013. So, you expect the Xbox One to last barely over a month? So THAT's why it's called "One".

    lolol I hadn't thought that far ahead
