We sincerely appreciate the feedback you have provided over this transition and can't wait for you to check out the new Xbox Forums!
1080p is better than 480p but most of the rest is down to preference I think. Needy people have more to say about their stuff than other folk in general but at the same time a healthy pissing contest is good. It's not bragging to talk about an entertainment
system in context with other people who want to do the same, it's a way to learn. Bragging is when people talk about things they own or things they've done with others who don't really want to hear about it so maybe you're just sticking your nose in or maybe
you are hearing bragging, what do you mean exactly; is a friend having a go at you? You could be intolerant of others you know or maybe you just want to talk about bragging, let us know.
They care. that's the point. They have a strong interest and want to discuss it which means they're forming groups. With most groups there is an amount of negative overspill which grows to allow the group to gel while rejecting others. It's not required
but people do like to bloody themselves. Maybe you've been caught in this overspill which is why you have such a negative opinion of people who talk about their gaming rigs. Gamers' groups can have a high level of negative overspill because they tend to
be less physically active and have been marginalised.
I'm not talking about them being miserable as individuals for various personal reasons, I'm talking about how people act as groups and the trait I mentioned is well noticed and often portrayed in media as a way gamers express.
