http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/121/1217393p1.html

- 6 times as powerful as 360.
- Blu-Ray.
- 1080p HD.
- Tossing out Microsoft points for real money system.

All good.

- Banning use of used games.

Not so good. So far Nintendo has said nothing about doing this, neither has Sony. This could potentially destroy Microsoft's reputation and tear it's fan base apart if it pisses people off. It'll also hit used game sellers hard. What is more likely, Microsoft forcing more new game sales at $60 a pop, or more. Or Microsoft driving a bunch of buyers right over to Sony/Nintendo, and probably resulting in another failure of a console like the regular XBOX??? Microsoft needs to take caution in doing this, cause if you try to force your way on gamers, they'll always "go for the other option" so to speak.

And if Sony had hackers pissed buy trying to make a unhackable console, this, this would make them come at Microsoft full force. Look at all the trouble Sony had with PSN due to hackers, it is something to be weary off.

Are you fucking kidding me? Microsoft will forever remain inferior to Sony in the gaming industry as long as they pull this shit on people.

Thank you for a reason to use this again, Microsoft.

Microsoft has been nickel and diming their customers for years. This is just another way of showing it.

-Make you pay for online that you already own. You bought the console and the internet separately and you have to pay to use them both together.
-Ban used games for 720.
-Starting the $60 trend.

They might as well hang a sign that says "You get what you pay for, but you pay for everything."

From what I've experienced, Xbox Live's servers aren't significantly better than PSN servers anyway.

I realized something very worrying about this.

If Microsoft finds a way to make used games unplayable, then it's obvious game devs that is pushing for this to be able to earn full profit for their games. This means Sony and Nintendo will HAVE TO follow along, or lose all their devs to Microsoft getting only possible ports.

Even if game developers are the ones pushing this, Sony and Nintendo will be faster in finding a workaround/compromise with them. I wouldn't be too concerned, to be honest.

New update.

It's now reported the "Nextbox" will not go Blu-Ray, it apparently won't use discs at all.

Microsoft is so dumb now. They were smart back in the XBOX/360 days when they hit the FPS franchise hard.
