    I want to live in a world where all our systems use purely digital, downloadable titles...so Gamestop can die the dirty w&^%* they are.

    Could the Optical Drive be a reason for the RROD?,In the Gamestop blog it mentions that Microsoft's next console is still have over-heating problems and that's why they might replace the drive with digital!

    PS3 also have lights of death,perhaps it really is the optical drives!!

    Damn, I thought they'd fixed this RROD problem to an extent with the latest consoles. I left mine on for over 2 months. That would have caused a nuclear explosion on my original 360.

    That just reinforces my decision to not buy new consoles for a while after they're released.

    I'm kinda worried it's still going on in the new console's developing stage process,But I'm sure they could at least make it better by launch!!

    I've personally never really had RROD..I had the white one for 6 months&nothing and I've had my elite for about 2 years or so and only had it after power loss by major lightning or disconnected wire while being on..Which the RROD only lasted till I turned off the power bottom each time!!!

    Blu-Ray was a given, but requiring always on internet? That's not going to happen. Not everyone connects online and some still don't have decent connections or internet at all. Also, the two GPU's may be misleading. The 360 and PS3 dev kits had 2 GPU's, but the retail versions don't.

    Whenever I turn on my 360 I'm connected online,I'm an XBL person and same with my PS3 But I ain't sure about going just full-time online or nothing like the PS Vita!!

    I'm surprised a release date is set for next year instead of 2014 as I expected,Revealed at E3 next year then launched months latter..hm!!

    They did the same with the 360. Unveiled it in May I believe, and then launched in November.

    I'm sure blu-ray is coming and those reveal/launch dates sound very likely. 2012 is too soon, 2015 too late. 2014 doable but a little late. That permanent online thing would be fine for me but I guess would be a big problem for a lot of people. It would certainly have advantages in controlling what users do and have access to but not sure how they can think of implementing it when a fair percentage of people just can't meet the requirements.

    I find 2014 to be the best date for the next Xbox and PlayStation 4. It would allow the major publishers to finish up their major projects for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and it would give them more time to launch some quality launch titles as opposed to most of the drivel that plagues console launches. It would help the development of the consoles to be much smoother, as opposed to the rush job on the Xbox 360 that caused so many problems and being way too expensive for the PlayStation 3. And if they both launch around the same time, publishers will be far more comfortable in making games for the new systems as opposed to making multiple expensive versions of a game.

    Yeah, I agree wholeheartedly. 2014 is the goldilocks date.

    The constant online is pure BS and I hope its not true for the reasons Kalel mentioned. For me personally my internent provider stinks and there are times where connection drops out, at worse for few hours at a time. This whole system would suck for someone like me. I hope it doesnt come true and I hope Sony doesnt follow suit

    Next Xbox to have 16 core processor?

    The bold part is the most interesting to me.

    Ok, now I think these sites just have a big dartboard with rumors on it. Every other day they just close their eyes and see what they hit. Xbox World is the same magazine that said the new Xbox would have a tablet controller.

    I don't think it's their job to only report rumors that are consistent with previous rumors.

    Sounds pretty powerful. Wish I had more of a handle on these pc type stats so I could appreciate exactly.

    It being so powerful&even"too much power for a gaming machine"sounds very interesting But a lot will go into a build-in Kinect(which will most likely be more powerful&advanced than current one)/most likely dozens of more apps&current ones being updated with big changes/maybe a web-browser/Blu-Ray and the rest still making the new console more advanced than the 360 for gaming&XBL content!

    IF PS4 will be even more powerful than that..Whoa!

    There's no way that Kinect is going to be built into the next Xbox.
