    A member of the Blizzard team has confirmed that his company has been in talks with Microsoft about the next generation version of the Xbox. As expected, this tidbit of news has sparked speculation that MS is set to replace the Xbox 360 sooner rather than later...

    Right? They still haven't fixed the fucking RRoD or the new Error 74, and they're already making a new Xbox?

    It's not like we're talking about a next console in 2009, It's probably gonna be released around 2011, The 360 had a normal lifespan then.

    as soon as the new Microsoft console is released I will buy the PS3!^^
    I think the PS3 will be much cheaper in 2011^^

    But seriously before talking about a new console, they reeeeally should firstly eliminate the RoD or E74 problems :/

    Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay Yay lol
    Anyway, I'm glad that they're starting on a new one, but...Blizzard???? SRSLY??!! They will want a WoW xbox game soon...

    I hope it has better online play, some developers just too lazy and make 16 Vs. MP, the highest I've seen is 50 Vs. on Frontlines.

    Give it some nice MMO capabilities, a mouse (I'm sure they'll think of something to use a mouse for)
    Blu ray player built in, backwards compatibility (obviously) Free Xbox Live!!!
    Fix the RROD and the DVD - Game problem (recognises some games as DVDs? U.U)
    And.... A NEW HALO SERIES!
    Oh and don't forget gun point and shoot action like teh wiiiiiiii [​IMG]
    Oh and the beautiful games like FF and other RPGs should be twice as beatiful (somehow, they'll whip something up)

    sorry lastly it must be able to download demos and content WHILST playing online games..........
