Next Xbox Console

What do you want from the 'Xbox 720'?

4:00 PM on 08.01.2012 // Chad Concelmo

With recent news that the leaked "Xbox 720" dev kit pictures and specs may actually be -- gasp! -- genuine, what are your thoughts? Here are the facts: The console is codenamed "Durango," the dev kit allegedly has 8 GB of memory, is 64-bit, and supports DirectX 11. When all is said and done, documented rumors point to the next-gen console being around six times more powerful than the current Xbox 360.

Six times more powerful. That is one impressive machine!

But all these rumored specs aside, what do you want from the "Xbox 720"? We hear all these crazy rumors, but now it's time to talk about what you actually want to see. Do you want a super powerful PC-like machine with graphics that will melt your face like the Ark of the Covenant? Do you want a new and improved Kinect? Do you want a hybrid that is both cloud- and disc-based? Do you want always-on DRM? Do you want a console that doesn't play used games?

And what about the name? And the price? I think we can all agree that calling it the "Xbox 720" doesn't really make any sense and would not be a very logical final name. Any suggestions? How much money would you be willing to realistically spend on the console? News on this next-generation Xbox is heating up, so let's discuss! There is so much to talk about!
