9 Wishes for Microsoft’s Next Xbox, Whatever It’s Called

Time - Citing the usual sources-who-shall-remain-namel ess, Bloomberg reports what everyone’s been assuming all year — that Microsoft‘s going to launch its next game system sometime in late 2013. All that seems left to deduce, then, is when Microsoft’s going to lift the curtain: at the E3 video games expo in June, or a Microsoft-specific event. (Next-Gen, Xbox 360)

Good idea about recording gameplay.

I meant that about the batteries when I said "rechargeable controllers".
WeskerChildReborned  +   753d ago
Yea i would like to be able to record my gameplay easily.

Sleep mode
Way less load time in general.

I love pretty graphics, but between booting and loading way too much time is wasted.

free online
no more hardware problems like the RROD and the console break disc
focus more on the core gamers instead of trying to be a all in one media platform
good games

You can forget free online. That isn't gonna happen. There has always been plenty of core games and that won't change. All i want is a reliable console with a boost in power and everything thing else will work out for itself.

Decent d-Pad
Play MKV files
Play and view CBR files
Able to play the music apps while playing games

Perfect Dark
Crackdown 3
Fable 4 (really curious to see this game with Molyneux's input and over promising features.)

Free Online

Why are guys still saying RRoD? This hasn't been relevant for the last 5 years.

The only thing I would really want is reliability. I know the first generation wasn't as good and they steadily got a bit better. So I'm hoping they will keep that trend. I also hope it will have wireless like the "slim" one now so I won't have to do the laptop trick. Those are the main two things that I would like to see. While it would be nice to see it be free online I don't think such a thing will happen given how much is being made from it not being free at this time.

I WANT
1.) M$ to have a franchise that can stand the test of time
2.) free online gaming
3.) MMO
4.) Quality hardware
5.) A family of franchises that can be cohesive with one another/ before nintendo make an another classical character

Free online isn't gonna happen not only is that a billion dollar industry by itself but millions are still willing to pay and considering that next generation will likely be even more online based people will be even more willing to pay for a robust online infrastructure even though many won't be of course.

I personally looking for far better multitasking and other capabilities and I would love nothing more than a Kepler GPU but won't give my hopes up. I think this generation Microsoft set themselves up for a great next generation.

1) Hardware reliability
2) More Microsoft-published games. But then again, that's gonna happen anyway.
