Here's a wishlist for a new XBOX 360 system The XBOX 360 Ultra/Ultimate Elite or whatever you want to call it.
  • Wireless 802.11 (So no need to buy the $100 adapter)
  • A 120-200GB Hard Drive
  • Blu-Ray Drive (HD-DVD is pretty much on it's death bed with all the studious jumping ship)
  • Black Finish ala the current XBOX 360 Elite
  • Gears of War 2 to go along with it

It'll probably be around $799, but it would literally be a beast of a machine.

Yeah, the PS3 as a piece of hardware is great no doubt about it. The 802.11 ready to go, the Blu-ray(Though probably the main reason for it's steep price, was smart decision by Sony), and the fact that it can run Linux and other Unix based OS on there is great. Though I'm not a fan of the UI, and I'm a bigger fan of the titles on the XBOX. But the list was pretty much obvious things microsoft should consider doing to the next generations of XBOX's in the next 6-12 months. No Brainers IMO.

It really isnt a no brainer for microsoft, becuase the main reason why the PS3 wasnt selling was because of its price, and only now since PS3 offered much cheaper option will it begin to sell more(IMO). Saying that I am very happy that I have the 80 Gig Model for myself. Also regarding the titles, if you look at the titles for the upcoming year, i actually like PS3's a bit more, not to mention Home will be coming out

well...if we're going to do game systems....I'll do a wish list for the wii...

- wireless nunchuck (currently in development)
- a hard drive (around 40 GB would be nice)
- just the ability to play DVD's would be greatly appreciated
- better graphic port...say at least 720p....
- headset for online play
- better online system...something along the lines of the xbox...

Haze is getting alot of hype and looks like it could be amazing. Killzone 2 is coming out god knows when, but still looks great. And of course MGS4, which is by far my favorite game franchise of all time is suppose to come out Q2 2008, so you really can't argue with the titles.

I really can't imagine life without BioShock, Mass Effect & Halo 3. The 360 is basically a must-have for it's exclusive games, the PS3 isn't...

With that being said, the lower price and better game selection will convince a lot of gamers to pair their 360 with a PS3. A few months ago I dreamed of having a Wii, now I'd rather have a PS3.

The 2 I bolded are what I would love for the Wii. The headset I haven't used for anything else so I can live without, but the lack of wireless games holds it back big time IMO.

I could bet money that he meant online games. And that really is a big handicap so far with the Wii. Even brawl looks like it may not be that good online.

yea, I agree...Wii's online gaming doesn't get me interested at all...

and it's not even that reliable...it's like a 75% chance you get matched into a game with Madden or even Guitar Hero...
