    'smaller and sell for less' that's got me worried, those words entail less power which might make it more affordable to start with, but I think MS need to look ahead with this one... especially if they're planning on giving the loop a similar life-span to the 360

    I see it as a side-effect of the switch to ARM. ARMs are miniaturized for things like tablets and phones, and are manufactured in much higher numbers as a result...but high-end ones have similar crunching potential to the big boys. They did a decent job future-proofing the 360, it was just a bit too cutting edge for its time, which led to hardware unreliability and a needlessly high initial price. It's certainly brave, especially with the move towards dedicated co-processors. It didn't pay off for PS3, but then again PS3 also experimented with then-one-off tech that IBM declared a failure for that kind of application.

    I like my machine, and won't be the first one on line for the "Loop", but I think it's about that time they are thinking about/ developing this machine. More and possible upgradable modular RAM, bigger and possibly modular hard drive. A powerful Graphics card, and some really triple a exclusive.

    Ugh,just when I was about to buy a new xbox...

    I think that by the time the "loop" is actually released, the 360 will be ready for departure

    So essentially, it's the WiiBox? Maybe? Eh, I don't know. I don't really care either. So long as it can do what my Xbox 360 does(Easily navigated menu, music/videos streaming from my computer to the T.V.) I don't care. Also, you must publish games worth caring about. I won't buy it at launch if it doesn't have games. And maybe make it backwards compatible too. That shouldn't be asking too much.

    Hmm, if the new Xbox will be smaller and less expensive is Microsoft heading toward cloud gaming as well?

    While a new console is a certainty, I still believe there is sufficient enough life left in the 360 to keep it around another couple of years...

    With the titles I have not yet beaten from this gen, plus the games that I have purchased this fall, plus the games I intend to purchase in the coming months, I think the 360 easily has another to years left in it. Although, if the new xbox does release before i'm completely done with the 360, I will still be one of the first to purchase it.
