    Next Generation Console Hardware
    In the first section Darren talks about next generation console hardware and what than can mean for future game development.  Assuming you can believe the rumor mill both the PS4 and Xbox 720 will have similar hardware with only minor changes in clock speed and overall system architecture.  The benefits here are clearly to the game developer as this will allow them to build games that will work on both the PC and Console.

    The question is, with the new generation coming out and lackluster console sales does this mean PC gaming is coming back?, remaining the same?, or will consoles rule the gaming world once again?  

    HWBot Aquamark3 Benchmark Wrapper
    HWBot recently announced a new benchmark wrapper to help streamline Aquamark3 score submissions.  The new wrapper uses the HWBot submission API and should really cut down on suspected cheaters trying to get the highest Aquamark3 score.  In this segment Dennis and Darren talk about the advantages of this new feature and how things like this have been changing HWBot from an enthusiast website into a legitimate business with real community support.
