    Now its not set in stone yet.
    But its kinda

    Code:
    It's almost two years to the day since                           [URL="http://www.microsoft.com/"]Microsoft[/URL] launched the                           [URL="http://www.xbox.com/"]Xbox 360[/URL]. So you would expect its successor to be well on its way towards fruition. But Microsoft has dropped only a few subtle hints about what form it could take, and hasn't provided any details.
    The most significant statement so far has been about timeframe. Supposedly, the next generation Xbox will arrive next decade, possibly                           [URL="http://www.videogamesblogger.com/2007/03/13/next-xbox-720-to-launch-in-2011-2012-according-to-microsoft.htm"]2011 or 2012[/URL]. 
    Microsoft wants as long as possible to recoup the $1.26 billion it spent developing the Xbox 360.
    With such a long wait ahead, we've taken it upon ourselves to jump in the                           [I]Tech.co.uk [/I]time machine and dialled in 2011, to give you a sneak peek of what you should expect from the next Xbox. Some have already named the 360's successor as the 'Xbox 720'. But we shall be referring to it as the 'Xbox 2011', to commemorate its likely year of arrival.

    No, it's 4 thousand GB. 4 million GB would be 4 PB (petabyte)

    Eh, I looked at the "Final Prediction" and it looks pretty stupid.
    -4TB? Totally ****ing unnecessary. Who the **** would use that much? If you download like, maybe EVERYTHING on the Microsoft Marketplace, yeah, you'd be able to fit it all, FINALLY, but seriously, who the **** is gonna use 4TB on a goddamn console?

    -Blu-Ray? ****ing idiots, Blu-Ray is owned by Sony, (I think, or else Sony just made a deal with them. I'm PRETTY SURE that it's owned by Sony, and if not, they already have a deal, no way Microsoft is gonna get Blu-Ray.) Yeah, Sony's totally gonna be like, "Yeah, you're our competition. You can freely use our new format. ;D "

    -Built-in camera is a dumbass idea considering some people have their 360 in places that, if a camera were to be sticking out of the 360, could not see the player. Just get the damned camera that comes in those packs. You need to have flexibility and at least a wire on those cameras.

    -Built-in microphone is also freakin' stupid, considering the fact that every 360 comes with a damned mic, so what's the point? Oh, now you have to LEAN IN near the 360 for it to hear you and you can access things like, "Turn on [insert game here]" when you could do the same thing with the microphone plugged into the controller that you'll have to use to play said game anyway.


    >_>
    Anyway, yeah. I'm back. For like, a few posts. xD

    Here is a bit of info on Blu-ray:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blu-ray_Disc_Association

    Also, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Inc. has an agreement with the Blu-ray Disc Association, which is the biggest tie between Blu-ray and Sony, by no means does Sony own Blu-ray. They just release all their movies on Blu-ray format and not on HD-DVD format as some other companies do so they can help their own cause with the PS3.

    Either way, Sony would keep paying Blu-Ray as much as it takes to have Blu-Ray exclusive to Sony products, considering that Sony is bragging about their PS3 having the future of DVD's and **** with Blu-Ray, even though it's not that great. Point is, Blu-Ray on 360, no chance it's gonna happen.

    Sounds like a fanboys wish-list.

    Current trends based on past trends do not work in the electronic world.
