    The real question we must ask is, "Will these companies not come out with new systems?".

    I guarantee that the next XBox won't be called 720. That doesn't even make any sense. Speculation sucks.

    Good thing these systems are so environmental friendly so when we pitch em it won't affect our globe.

    Makes more sense than "Wii" [​IMG]

    Anyway, the reason for the "360" name is simple.. Sony was releasing a console called Playstation 3.. If Microsoft named their console with the name Xbox 2, When you see the names PS3 and Xbox 2 side by side.. you get the impression that the Xbox is inferior, cause it's 2, while it's competitor is a 3.. so, the "360" thing.. it's a marketing thing.. I know, sounds stupid.. like every marketing thing [​IMG]

    And about the rumor, it's not hard to make those kind of guesses.. just look at how much time the previous consoles last. And I should remind you that the PS2 is still alive and kicking [​IMG]

    Just to ask but why would they make a Wii 2 if Nintendo can't even keep up with demand for the Wii now.

    I'm still waiting for the Wii to be released in Black (or any other fucking color besides White), with DVD support... [​IMG]

    xbox 720, come on they aren't going to name it that. that'd be stupid. wii 2? possible, but there's no gamecube 2 so that's probably not happening either.

    the reason why we have an xbox 360 is because there is a playstation 3, and microsoft went all creative and named their system xbox 360 instead of xbox 3 since there's no xbox 2. xbox came out after ps2 I believe.

    yeah that black wii looked slick back before the current one was released. you should be able to swap cases these days, i'm sure someone makes a black replacement case.

    I predict that Apple will introduce their own console (even though Wii has reached their target market)

    Hold me to that, and check this comment again in 10 years time.

    I predict:
    Nintendo 6 and Xbox 3 - 2011-12, probably at the same time with similar specs.
    Playstation 4 - the year after, once they realise that a 10 year lifecycle isn't going to happen.

    Ja, I've seen ridiculous amounts of cases, decals, and whatever, but nothing quite matches the feeling of owning an officially licensed/manufactured color... [​IMG]

    Nintendo needs to ease up with the cocktease. [​IMG]

    BTW, thanks for not staying dead, Ampy. [​IMG]

    Turn around...
    Are there any Nintendo 2 consoles? They allways give them new names I believe.
    Besides, it will take a little longer than just 3 years for a new Wii, the current one is likely to remain popular for atleast 5 years if you ask me.

    The 360 bit means that Microsoft's plan for a machine running games under their framework is finally gone full circle.

    well I feel like my official white wii isn't so official any more since parts (mainly doors) don't fit right because I took the whole thing apart to mod it [​IMG] oh well at least it runs warez so that's what matters. I think I'd just stick with the white one. black is for ugly ps3.
