Rumors of an Xbox "520"-basically a half-step between the Xbox 360 and, say, the next-next gen console, the 720-have been circulating for...well, just about as long as the 360's been out.
ummm... for me just better games and and and yeah just better games then this crappy 360 08 games. imean look at 360, lots and imean lots of 360 fans especially power of green said lots of games will be announce at micro gamers day, but it didnt it went down alan wake is 08 now tales of vesperia is multi to ps3. geez
Line up is pretty good. Sure, Sony has a better 08 line-up and Sony's exclusive line up is phenominal and you can't hold everyone to that. Last year's 360 line-up was phenominal and blew Sony out of the water but each system will have it's own year or quarter or month. I don't think you can call the 2008 360 line-up horrible (even with multi-plat games) we've had or will have by year's end: Lost Odysessy Mass Effect GTA IV Ninja Gaiden II Too Human COD 4 Splinter Cell: Conviction Fable 2 Rainbow Six Vegas 2 Fallout 3 Gears of War 2 Age of Conan (MMO) Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Saints Row 2 These games to name a few make the 08 line up pretty decent. Stop trolling buddy and stick to your PS3 news articles;)
why should i only stay in the ps3 section wen i have all 3 consoles, im just disappointed in there "EXCLUSIVE LINE UP" im not talking about both exclusive and multi for the 360
but the only ones that will come to pass is whatever microsoft decides to copy from nintendo and sony after "THEY" make it. just like before... usb...we'll add that just like sony did on ps2 dvd...we'll add that just like sony did 1080p..we'll add that just like sony did hdmi...we'll add that just like sony did rumble built inside controller...we'll add that just like sony did hard drive...we'll add that just like sony did with the OG PS2 larger hard drive...we'll add this after saying 20gig was enough and sony having a bigger,switchable hdd BC...we'll add that just like sony did motion control...we'll add that just like nintendo and sony did video camera...we'll add that just like sony did video service...we'll add that and get it out before sony does like they were saying they will do years earlier high def media...we'll add that but end up losing with an add-on that has never ever sold in large amounts from 64dd,32x to sony's hdd casual controller...we'll add that just like sony did with BUZZ singing game...we'll add that just like sony did with singstar play-create-share games...we'll add that like sony showed with LBP and as microsoft thought sony would recreate XBL,sony said,"we'll make a 3D community.""not XBL."and watch,microsoft will just add something like it later on.you'll see.....they have no original bone in their bodies at microsoft except for what they know best.which is software only. but copying is their way of life.disagree,and i'll just bring up MAC OS and IPOD. megaton.................
that woke me up my list: hdd as standard, larger media, cheaper peripherals, quieter and yeah, more reliable hardware
Your comment makes post birth abortion seem like a good thing And your stealing rumble line ROFL! How about sony stealing rumble and analogue control just like NINTENDO did?
did sony creat video games in the first place?? coz i swear i was playing an atari vcs2600 back in the early eighties?? and i'm sure my master system was made by sega, and my nes ny nintendo?? the creche is that way------> go and play with other fanboys!
on topic. i don't want a mid life change for the 360, i want new, improved and much more powerful hardware in 2010. five years after the 360 was launched. sporting: a blu-ray player, a custom built and powerful cpu, a custom built and powerful gpu, 2-4 gig of ram and a hdd as standard! and definately keep the 360 pad for the next console! you cant and dont need to change perfection. the 360 pad is the best i've used in over 2 decades of gaming... imo ofcourse
Didn't you have more bubbles a few days ago??? Don't make it seem like Micro is the only one copying off of another company. They all do it. They all want to create something similar to the competition, but just a little bit better. No console maker or game maker is exempt from this. If you think otherwise, then you are obviously blinded by the Sony shield my friend.
A silent console..
... with a failure rate under 50 % ! Maybe they should ask Sony to build their consoles.
How about a reliable console? :/
why copy sony and nintendo? they need to innovate by doing the complete opposite! =)
there not releasing a half way step its just the same console with a new chip set to make it quiter and cheaper to make. Duh...
Its not even that, it's just another rumour that people have seemed to run with. MS have already countered and stated "no new xbox in 2009". Yet people continue to talk about it??? http://www.n4g.com/xbox360/... < MS saying NO.
They HAVE to release another console soon or the video game business could be over for them. 360 will die, it has been outsold for months worldwide, and the gap will increase a lot with MGS and other PS3 exclusives.
i dont care just keep the controller
... but learn to make a D-PAD. The D-PAD on the 360 controller is horrible compared to the PS3.
well yeah get the dpap sorted but the ps3 dpad is that much better
Forget sony, Copy the nintendo Dpad. License the patent if necessary but that thing is golden! the 360s dpad sucks ass. I pressed up not left!
I want them to drop the 360, 540, 720 crap. Call it what it is, Xbox 2.
Agreed! If that's the trend, they'll end up with an Xbox 2000. This isn't a vacuum cleaner or hit points in a JRPG. It's an expensive gaming console!
Why? Naming it the Xbox 2/3 will sound behind. Xbox 2 vs PS3, naturally the PS3 sounds better in our minds, higher number. That is the reason behind the name Xbox 360 rather than Xbox 2.
I know why they did it, its pathetic. So instead of appearing inferior they appear juvenile, scared and very worried of what everyone might think about them.
A console that has better multiplatform games, can play GTA4 in 720p and without freezing every 10 seconds, a console with a bigger and better games library, and finally a console with the best online service. Damn this new console sounds familiar already :)
1. Fix the pathetic D-pad on the controller. 2. Get rid of the Arcade model; make a hard drive standard. 3. Reliability.
xbox games suck, wait till sony picks up the pace. they had a rough start, microsoft had a head start, and how much different are the multi platform games? its harder to dev on the ps3. their just realizing how it all works now. burnout looks better on the ps3, and im sure other games do too. its all about exclusives my dude. mass effect halo, gears, bioshock, orange box, does any of your best exclusives have any thing in common? cmon man, thats weak, theirs no excuse 4 not having alot of good games by now. i could name 4 games that would have a wider variety and better quality then your best exclusives. xbox is lame. they havent even reached 20 mill yet and their sales are dropping significantly. wait till home comes out then talk. ps3 is selling far better than the 360 did in their point in time. and your losing bioshock and mass effect.
1) HDD standard in all consoles 2) Greater reliability 3) BD Drive 4) Greater reliability 5) Blower instead of fans 6) Greater reliability 7) Drive Slot and not a Tray 8) Greater reliability 9) Better D-Pad 10) Greater reliability 11) Less cluttered Dashboard And so-on and so-on....
This article is about the XBOX360, stop listing PS3 features. (for those who lack any sense of humor, it's a joke)
I want it all though!
Microsoft and Sony will revise their system over the years to bring cost down. For Sony, they already cut cost with the latest revision by removing backward compatibility chipset as well as smaller hard drive and fewer usb ports. For Microsoft, their current Falcon model has a smaller 65nm CPU among other things. These cost cutting revisions should not be considered as upgrades because they do nothing to make the systems more powerful.
1. improve reliability. 2. dont make it sound like a 747 about to land. 3. standard hardrive. 4. use bluray. 5. make it look, i dunno, nicer? to me it looks like a dirty white plastic box. 6. dont change the controller, maybe refine it. i suppose thats it for me. i bet theres more though. this is BS anyway, there never will be a '540', so i just wasted my time
right, ok... 1) reliability 2) 2GB RAM 3) 120GB BUILT IN! hard drive 4) 5 USB ports 5) HDMI output 6) up to 8 controllers 7) a decent graphics card! so it doesnt overclock and then die 8) a fan that isnt louder than a CoD4 RPG oh, and dare I say it? Blu-ray
no RROD please :D
120 FPS and 4d graphics please! Include the 4D glasses in the box. oooh and dual HDMI for both my HDTVS and USB ports up the wazoo. 1440P graphics should also be standard.
Somehow this is one funny thread because you can't help but think of the other platform's features which the Xbox 360 currently lack. In my opinion though, they should put a hold on this supposed "540" upgrade and focus all of these ideas on the new 720. If these rumors are true, then the MS guys could come up with a "rushed" ugly console.
No1 on wish list - No RROD oh and free online £40 is a joke
You get what you pay for, want to talk about a joke, paying £300 for a console that has till to prove its worth anything near it
Better then risking £150 on a console that's very likely to break down
how can ms be alerday planning their nex console when this gen of gaming is just gettting heatd up, i guees if u cant take the heat get out of the kitchen or in ms world if u cannont take the heat of ps3 catching up and wii selling amazing then bring out another console that will have everything the ps3 has but even better,....sony planned the ps3 for at least 8-10 years, u never hears rumors about a ps4 when sony was going throw hard times with the ps3 but now things are looking postive for sony ms getting ready for a new console because they are looking at throwing away their lead, EDIT... in europe sony has overtaken the 360 and in japan the 360 almost does not exsit in that region so that just leaves america, and if things keep gong like this ms will lose their lead in that region as well.......but still i would love to see another x box just to see if ms really has what it takes to compete with sony and nintendo and to prove that the 360 succes is not a fluke.
If M$ want to to loved in Japan, get Shenmue III made, and make it exclusive... HA HA HA HA!
1.No news here- Reliability 2.Exchangeable 500gig HDD 3.At least four USB 3.0, card readers, hdmi and all other inputs/outputs 4.2gig RAM 5.Cell v.2.0 6.gfx card with atleast 1gig ram 7.Ability to play multiple games without changing disks 8.Silent&slick 9.K&M support 10.Make it a media hub- music, movies, pictures, internet, remote control etc.
no red rings....(prays his new 360 doesnt get red ring)
Works - No RROD Internal Power supply - no ugly power brick sitting there Quieter fans. Better quality and quieter DVD drive. Generic HDD upgrades like PS3. Also generic bluetooth and other accessories. If 360 had been like that to begin with I would've bought one at launch and supported it. Instead we got this rushed junk hardware that's loud and ugly.
For it to Work? but really who will care about xbox 3 by then... No really.. PS3 that Sexy B!tch is Going to Smush All!!!!
I have a 08 falcon 360 and its very reliable.The only time I can hear it is when im playing a 360 game but when I have a CD,DVD or original Xbox game in its very silent.I just hope I see GTA V,PGR 5 and Halo 4 come out for it in the future.
Its funny that this whole wishlist , lists things that the PS3 already has .. Why not buy a PS3 ? PS3 is the only next-gen console out here.
Ralisport challenge 3... where is it?
