[When we're looking for blogs on a specific topic, we'll put out a Bloggers Wanted call. Check out the blog prompt, write your own response in the Community Blogs and tag it with the "Bloggers Wanted Essay Response" tag, and you may see your blog promoted to the front page. -- JRo]
Nintendo has been releasing more details about the Wii U over the last few weeks, and just a few days ago we heard that Microsoft has been sitting on the name "Xbox 8". The next generation of consoles is rapidly approaching, and assuming everything goes according to plan we'll be seeing the first one drop this holiday season.
For Bloggers Wanted, I want you to tell me about your hopes and expectations for this next console cycle. Feel free to discuss all three major companies, or to just focus on one of them. What do you want to see in this new generation? What did the companies do wrong last time? How can they fix it? What features will they need to have to stay competitive? Who do you think will come out on top?
To participate, justwrite a CBlog, title it "Next-Gen: [Your Blog's Title]", and select the Bloggers Wanted Essay Response tag. Throughout the week, keep an eye on the blogs and get some discussions going with your fellow Dtoiders!
