Sweet! Although my TV is only 720p capable, but it's good to be future proof.
Also great that they included the headset. Kinect wouldn't have been very ideal for ingame-VoiP for anyone but people living alone :P

Bit meh on the headset to be honest as its only mono - wont really wear it. Will be investing in a surround sound pair as soon as they are available - nothing worse than being knifed from behind

A lot of people in the comments have a problem with the power brick, why? It's not like the X1 is a mobile device where it would matter. Just stick it behind the TV set and forget about it. I honestly can't come up with a single good reason to put it inside in a device like this.

But he didn't necessarily say call of duty. Battlefield 3 has a huge dependency on hearing the game sounds.

Also, I still find those Perks for silence without value. I always use Shock Charges and Bouncing Betties if I snipe, so I have a LOUD warning system, haha.

I don't get the complaints when it's in the current consoles either. Now, if they added proper cooling, it wouldn't matter. PCs have more raw computing power and keep PSUs inside the, but they cool better than the cramped consoles.

Having played some 70 hours of BF3 on PC, I don't think I've ever heard anyone come up from behind before I get knifed. That said, I just about never use any headphones (even then ones I have arnt anywhere near Turtle Beach), but I suppose better headphones would be able to pick it up, but I feel it would be too late anyways.
But it's other little things.. identifying vehicles before you see them, hearing the reload-yells, distinguishing different weapons, hell, just for the actual immersion of it all! :D

I think the soldier dialogue in battlefield is what really adds to the game the most. If someone is down a hallway, it sounds so realistic. Their voice has a reverb/echo to it and when they shout for help or they spot an enemy, even from a good distance it can alter the gameplay choices.

Favourite sound in BF3 - Shell casings. I quite often play as support and often empty a whole 200 round ammo case down a hallway as cover - hearing the shells tinkle for a few seconds while I reload is awesome.
