Hello Friday! We have a new Xbox. Huzzah! We have a new Playstation. Woohoo! Let's talk about it. Or whatever you want for the next couple of hours. The whole Giz staff will be hanging out. Won't you join us?

Next Friday, we'll be taking a break from the open thread because I will be too busy trying to figure out how I can uneat a 10,000 calorie meal without moving at all. Thanksgiving pie recipes welcome.
