    We already know that work on the next version of a console begins essentially as soon as development finished on the newest one. Its interesting to see that they are ramping up work on the next version of XBL.

    With the rumors that J Allard is back working for the Xbox division with some designers and project managers getting to work on the nitty gritty... Next xbox in 2011?

    Seems about right for it to drop in around 4 years.

    Still, its unknown just how far along any real work is at the moment. Word is that development ion the next xbox is not at full capacity yet. Most likely still toying with ideas, specs and chatting with developers.



    Sooo... What do you think they would change to XBL? What do you want changed/added? And what kind of GUI are you expecting for the next Xbox?

    I really wish they would use XBLA to it's full potential. They rarely release old game on it, and most of the 'new' arcade games are all scrolling shooters, few to none of which are good. I mean, I don't exactly know what old games MS has access to, but I hope it's more than Doom and Ninja Turtles.

    They should take the Small Arms idea, and make a Microsoft type smash bros., with a new downloadable character every month. That would be a huge XBLA hit. Small arms was good, but it had a lot of control problems.

    That's a cool idea.
