Microsoft seems to have also inadvertently admitted to the existence of Halo 4. That's another series that's left me behind. We got an Xbox as part of a "keep daddy sane" program right after Olivia was born in '05, but video gaming in the main room was too disruptive, so (after finishing Halo and Halo 2, among a few others) it got relegated pretty quickly to LAN party-style meetings and I went back to gaming on the PC.
Nowadays I could probably get away with plugging an HDMI cable from the Xbox 360 into my laptop and using its screen & audio with headphones. Thing is, I still can't see dropping $300 bucks on the required hardware (Kinect controller included).
