The XBox 720 is due to launch in the next 18 months. What's Microsoft going to have to do to hit a home run with its latest console? How, if at all--can they improve upon the 360, Live, and Kinect? What would YOU like to see on the new console?
1)Reasonably priced 2)Way more powerful & capable of doing thing that are unexpected. 3)way better disc format than whats available 4)Continue the superior support giving to Xblive 5)continue to improve Kinect 6)create & nurture new IP , extend your partnership w/ 3rd party Developers .. 7)Do what you've been doing just tenfolds better .
There will b a kinect. Microsoft thinks it's the future of OS's not just gaming. But the best move for Microsoft is to move towards the smartphone pay structure. Create a bad ass machine but instead of selling it for $700, put it in people's houses for $99-$299 w/ a subscription fee. This fee could be for online, for cable service (they have partnered with time Warner), for dvr functionality etc. Also, the OS will be seamlessly integrated with windows 8, windows phone and the surface tablet. It will become an extension of the pc in ur living room. If they do this and offer entertainment, pc functionality, dvr and possibly cable service with a kick ass gaming machine, it will b hard for Sony and Nintendo to compete. That being said, I love Sony and I hope their machine releases first. I am just very worried that their stubbornness and strange belief that everything will b fine may hurt them this Gen.
Please no Kinect. I don't want to move when I'm relaxed sitting down playing a game rather than moving around and creating unnecessary actions. What's wrong with doing all that Kinect can do with the 360 controller, or any controller? Aside from Kinect issues, I hope there's a solid line up of completely new unthinkable game titles at launch, and Halo 5 doesn't count. This better be a beast of a machine because I don't know how long consoles will last. I want to see visuals on my TV that I just want to grasp and kiss. Oh yeah XBOX 720? I doubt this will be the name. But it's whatever.
I want them to focus on games this time around! This generation started off with a bang but the rrod issues obviously changed the direction Xbox was headed. Bring back some old franchises that require a controller and I'm sold. Kinect is great for movies and if its still around please enhance its voice features and give the hand gesture stuff much better accuracy.
no, it is not due to launch in the next 18 months. has MS officially announced this? no? then stop reporting rumour as fact.
Microsoft has really set themselves up to be in a solid position next generation. They are prime in North America and they have a solid mixture of core, casual, families and people who just like entertainment. They have done an excellent job at making the Xbox brand synonymous with fun and a great online service. We know from the leaked documents that the next Xbox is going to launch with a Kinect 2.0, which we have seen leaked screen shots and apparently it can track even fingers. If they can make Kinect 1:1 motion control, offer some great launch titles and improve Xbox Live even more, they will be in fantastic shape from the start. A big key for me is backwards compatibility, I am hoping for BC with the original Xbox and Xbox 360, but in a pinch I'd take just Xbox 360 BC. Any way you look at it, people are starved for new hardware and software to push that hardware. Lets bring on the next generation!
with a bunch of timed dlc exclusive
Believe you me, Microsoft and it's bottom-ground hardcore supporters will disregard ANY past defamation attacks against Sony and Blu-Ray and will act like Blu-Ray is the new way and the new found life for Microsoft and their new console. Not that I feel Blu-Ray should be held to just one gaming entity. The more content/entity it creates and prospers, the better. I just think that any rational fanboys left should recognize and appreciate where the advancement in hardware and format come from. It came from the Playstation 3.
With bionic legs of course.
the name says it all
i just want to play games that are fun to play. also, please dont try to make the graphics look just like real life. cartoony games are way cooler to look at ( in my opinion)
With high-heels on...
no more overheating.
I really wish and hope these next-gen consoles would provide at the very least a 250GB of HDD ( above would be much appreciated ) to be the default standard so people don't have to upgrade.
get it out now!~ 360 is going into its 8th year on the market in november sad, the games on both consoles are getting outshined by cell phone games graphically PC is two full generations beyond consoles, and the gap only grows, by the time new consoles do launch, they will already be last gen comparitively
