thats fine as long as they dont expect people to pay £40 or £50 for a game.

Because if they do, then they're going to see one of the great games console flops of history.

A major key factor in successful gaming console systems is its affordability.

Microsoft’s next console will require an Internet connection in order to function, ruling out a second-hand game market for the platform. A new iteration of Xbox Live will be an integral part of Microsoft’s next console, while improved Kinect hardware will also ship alongside the unit.

with any luck the new console will allow the stagnated pc games market to evolve, and make use of my HD7970 GPU and quad cores. and 8GB of RAM.

SO i will have no need at all for an xbox720.
