    Thought this might interest some people to know that the current gen of consoles have a lot more exploration. What do people think

    Waiting is probably a good idea, people are still buying Xbox 360s for whatever reason *cough*RRoD*cough* and there's still money to be made.

    Even if Microsoft made another console, they won't spice it up like the other Companies unless you count kinect, they would probably just boost online services and upgrade hardware.

    the problem is that unlike pc's consoles aren't easily upgradable so we have no choice but to stay with tech that is approaching 7 years of age. That being said I do believe this gen of consoles still have a lot of potential for great games.

    well gameplay wise it cant really be enhanced without a peripheral like kinect. Graphics wise it still has potential left.

    Why do people think the next Microsoft console will be called Xbox 720?

    i dont know why people make such a big deal about the xbox's RRoD, i mean, i know it shouldnt happen, but once it does, you get your xbox replaced for free, so theres really no reason to complain

    "Once it does" instead of "if it does" is part of the problem...

    Another part is that some people have run through multiple units. I saw a news post a while back where one guy had 7 in a row.

    And yes, you can get it replaced for free (if it's within the warranty extension, which not all are anymore), but then you go a few weeks or so without one while yours ships there and a fixed one ships back.
