Last week, we asked the IGN community to vote for their pick of the best reader-submitted next-gen console designs. Now, after nearly 100,000 votes were cast, we have a winner. IGN reader Jon's outstanding Xbox Infinity concept garnered nearly 28% of all votes, followed closely by Neil's futuristic Xbox 720 design, which accounted for 23%. For his efforts, Jon will receive an Astro Gaming A50 wireless gaming headset.
Here's Jon's original description of his vision for the design:
Thank you to everyone who voted and all of the designers for their great work!
After looking at a lot of design concepts already out there, I decided many were just too complex and busy. I wanted to design something that could and would make sense in the real world. There are certain existing elements (such as the LED ring) in the Xbox design language that I feel are iconic and immediately recognizable and I really wanted to pay homage to those. This is a new system, but it's still Xbox. Lastly, some time ago I heard a rumor that the new system could possibly be called Xbox INFINITY. I liked the idea and I wanted to design a geometric shape that captures that concept, though after I'd rendered everything I wish I would've called it INFINITI though. The result is a clean and striking design that is new but still the Xbox we all know and love. This was incredibly fun and I'd like to thank IGN for the motivation!

Police have raided the home of next-gen Xbox leaker SuperDaE, if reports are to be believed. According to The Verge, Australian police were joined by an FBI officer to search his home earlier this week. SuperDaE shared a copy of his warrant with The Tech Game which revealed that Microsoft, PayPal and eBay were all part of the investigation. This is probably due to the fact that he tried to sell an alleged Xbox 720 development kit on the auction site last August. The Verge has managed to confirm that the warrant is genuine, as is Microsoft's supposed involvement, which is pretty telling. If the company has decided to pursue DaE then it's a fairly safe bet that the material he's leaked in the past as well as the Durango dev kit he tried to sell are genuine. DaE first rose to prominence last year when he posted what he claimed to be images of the Xbox 720 Durango dev kit online. Since then he's also shared rumours about the PlayStation 4's specs as well as suggested that the Xbox 720 will need Kinect to function.

We see a game's logo revealed. We watch a trailer. Read a preview. Download the desktop wallpaper. Change our ringtones. Hang the posters. Circle the release dates on our calendars. Scrounge the cash for a pre-order. The day arrives. The package comes. We tear it open. Anticipation boils to unfathomable heights.
And then we play it. And it's a total snooze.
The road from getting excited for a game to actually playing it can be a vicious cycle rife with disappointment and regret, and in many cases, even this year's most hyped blockbusters turned into projects we just couldn't bring ourselves to finish. I asked some of my fellow editors here at IGN which games they gave up on and here's what they told me.
