Sony is becoming Microsoft and Microsoft is becoming Sony, if this stuff is to be believed.

Nothing's official yet, but it won't be long before we know for sure.

What is it about having a successful console that always leads to the next one being fueled by stupid ideas?

I'd be very surprised if that rumour turns out to be true, because that's a pretty big deal breaker. All the competition needs to do is not that.

There's also rumors that the system will have an always-online system where you need to be connected to do ANYTHING, like Diablo 3 on steroids.

I really don't believe it though, even if multiple sites are reporting the rumor, because that's a level of stupid and a desire to fail typically reserved for Bond villains.

If any of those things turn out to be true I will officially join the PC master race completely with 3DS on the side and MAYBE a Wii U.

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. Most people don't remember that Sony's been toying with a feature that blocks used games on a console since PS3, but they've never been stupid enough to use it. Ever. I can't imagine Microsoft would be either, but I guess we'll see.

And the always online thing. My consoles are always online anyway, so I don't care, but I have to think they'd be smarter than that, too. They'd lose shit tons of sales from people who DON'T go online on their game machines, and there are still a lot of those people out there. I can't see Microsoft honestly doing that.

To be honest, the only part I do buy is Sony's console being less of a chore to develop for. Microsoft's been getting fishy with that stuff lately and Sony has had two generations of unhappy developers to learn from.

Another thing, remember the PSN hacking?

Imagine if a console had that always-online-for-everything DRM thing, and another event like that happened, it could make the console completely useless, for everyone, worldwide, for weeks.

To be fair, PSN wasn't taken offline by hackers. Sony themselves flipped the switch as a precaution. Then they kept it down a long as they wanted to change things, likely because their service is free and they felt less pressure than someone like Microsoft would taking such precautions.

Yes.

And I agree Nami, but any business would do the same in that situation.

Cyber attacks are going to become even more common and coordinated with time. I think needing to connect to a server at all times is a major risk for Microsoft to take.

To be fair Sony had shitty security for PSN when you looked further into it. Microsoft wouldn't have that kind of stupidity going on.

They were asking for it. Free or not. You don't leave information that easily on the table.

Suffice to say, this splits the demographic. What about folks who don't have access to decent speeds? What about countries outside of the UK and USA?

I know Microsoft isn't a popular brand overseas. But they should TRY to fix that, shouldn't they?

They will call it Xbox 720 just like Nintendo called it Super Mario 128.

It should be called Xbox: The Next Generation.

Like Star Trek.

Greatest blunder in Nintendo history was NOT having a Super Mario 128, nerd.

You know why they'd call it the Xbox 720? Because when you see it, you'll turn 720 degrees and walk away.

But then you'd just stumble into it and vomit because you were dizzy.
