Split-screen.com: "Future tech is always hard to predict because it's unknown just when it'll appear. It could be today, tomorrow, even the next ten seconds it takes to comment on and/or against anything. It's a bit easier with consoles, given their long shelf-life, especially taking into account the extremely expensive architecture and technology included in newer consoles like the Playstation 3. Of course, the Wii's motion-based gameplay also holds a long shelf-life not especially because of it's cutting edge tech but due to the innovations successfully propagated within the mainstream (at an affordable price to Nintendo, nonetheless). Given the highly divergent nature of Nintendo's home console designs, I'm going to focus on two things: An interesting and completely viable High-def (HD) media format for the Xbox 720 (aside from Blu-ray, of course) and how the Playstation 4 could surpass the PS3 (maybe without even much change to the current Cell architecture). The answers respectively lie within two simple technologies: DVDs and RAM."
