    It appears to be the same girl standing in the same position in both photos - one looks to be the middle of the day, the second early evening as the lights are on. Has she moved??? Looks like the eager queue have either got bored and moved on, or have been given their £5 to stand there looking eager for the photo and gone off to spend it! )))

    Painfully fake and posed, so she enjoys gaming by looking at the screen out the corner of her eye? Tipical Team Green ridiculous PR.

    Not a real K6 once the door hinges have been removed. Those doors were a bitch to open!

    Used to be a saying "slags sell mags" think that from pc format magazine who always had a girl on the front cover.
    ... just trying to think of anything that rymes with xbox or cloud ?
    Can't think of anything but I agree it's fake as hell PR.

    Really??!!
    I've come up with several in under two minutes, and they even rhyme... I can't post them here as they're exceedingly lewd, to say the least, but it makes me wonder if I'm in the wrong industry.

    So aside from the universal truth of all PR stunts being awful its a shame nobodies commented on the underlying technology.

    Cuz it's not that impressive - They've taken existing tech and made it just about work for the peasant gamers, which they showcased in a one-off PR stunt box that would not last a day in the real world before someone nicked it... and even then, it's still pretty darn laggy.

    I haven't looked into it much yet, but I suspect my current mobile phone could probably run it at a similar level.
