Thought Rockstar had been doing a pretty good job so far to be honest!

I hope technically the Xbox and Playstation are a bit closer next time, should reduce dev costs and one wont hold the other back or vice versa. If they do both use Blu ray I think its good for consumers.

Looks too cool. MS will undoubtedly make it look like a failed genetic experiment.
Some cheerleader at school or hot secretary at the office may not think you are cool but let’s be real, those very same bitches don’t love bacon and still use IE to explore the web.

Memory is becoming a lot cheaper and ive 4gb in my 2 year old laptop. By next year, I dont see why not 8gb of RAM to be honest.

what I am not sure is what the difference is between using 2 vs 8? I guess thats 6 gig of extra ram so it should technically have better performance i guess if it went the multiplat route

Doesn't surprise me, modern gaming PCs come with 8 and if next gen is going to last as long as this one they need to futureproof their console. I think PS3 and 360 would give anything to have more RAM (would have saved PS3 Skyrim and allowed cross game chat for a start) and realise it is holding them back so they are making sure it won't do next time. Even the WiiU has 4 times the RAM of PS3 and 360 yet similar graphics because Ninty have learnt from the mistakes of this gen and realise they might not need it now, but they will in a few years especially if they want to implement extra features.

You may laugh but this is the most logical post I've seen from you and I agree with this post. Just as I'm doing with the WII U I'll wait for a better price if the system is to expensive. You never miss much in the first year of a consoles life anyway as at best only a handful of games are on the system that are worth buying. The PS4 and Nextbox will be no different just as the WII U isn't. It doesn't matter to me how a system looks.

love the mockup design in many ways it looks like an old 3do (but without the silly feet) however i cant see ms putting their name on the usb cover as for many people it will be out of sight or if like the 360 broken off.

more ram means easier to develop for a lot of time, and less glitchy.

that mock-up looks pretty decent. i'd got for that. if MS are going to be offering 4-player kinect, AR glasses, large tivo type integration then i reckon 8Gb would be a no brainer. if it could do tv recording/downloading whilst still playing games that would be a bonus. i suppose it already does that a bit.

anyway, day 1 purchase for me i reckon.

Hmmm... Not sure about that stand (if this is really a final concept) - love the 360 slim design, as far as consoles go it's a looker. This has that iPod curved surface genericness going for it that everything seems to have these days. Not that I really care- show me a next gen Halo 5 and I'll be at the front of the queue come launch day.

I remember several years back, picking up a magazine that had supposed designs for the next gen of consoles (the one we are currently in). The new xbox (360) was cube shaped, and looked lik the original xbox in colour/design. The ps3 looked like a large softmint (the blue ones before they changed the colour) with wired controllers. Point is, we wont know until they are officially announced.

Very nice, but the talk of having Kinect built into the console puts me right off!

Sounds like every game will be utilising it.
