The Xbox 720 or How Next-Gen Could be Defined by Sound

Vincent Deshaies from GameFocus.ca talks about a possibly very interesting feature Microsoft seems to be working on for the next Xbox, as well as why graphical improvements aren't enough to incite people to go next-gen. (Microsoft, Next-Gen, Tag Invalid, Tech)

Personally I think this would be an amazing feature for me, since I live in an apartment building with no room for surround (and I would just annoy my neighbors). Is it enough for me to buy an Xbox 720 or whatever? Combined with good games, improved graphics and all the usual bells and whistles, YES!

I definitely think directional sound could be an improvement for next-gen consoles. Of course, I am interested in seeing better graphics too. I want to have a game that's REALLLLY immersive. :) Anyway, this is interesting. I'm looking forward to the 720 and PS4!

One has to wonder what they'll even do for the generation AFTER the next xbox/ps4... but lets not get ahead of ourselves... lol

Immersion is definitely the key

Wait, I know. Virtual reality glasses. Gotta keep the dream alive, man.

Totally agree

When are we going to get those virtual reality headsets that allow us to be put into any game we want? ... Or an Xbox that has the power of teleportation, you simply place your hand on it and you're where you want to be.

I did hear about someone who made their SNES into a toaster. That's pretty freaking cool.

EDIT: You beat me to that

I want next-gen consoles to smell like burnt toast

I want next-gen consoles to tuck me in at night and feed me spaghetti.
