    Lots of system memory would be good. Console hardware memory is always sized economically, based on the current requirements and market price, however price of memory always drops in the time the console is in development. For example, the current 360 has half a gigabyte of memory which in 2005 looked OK but now seems a little miserly in hindsight. More memory = massive levels with less storage media bashing.

    Also, I'd like the new Xbox to be super quiet. My original 360 sounded like Concorde taking off and even the most recent version S is louder than my PS3. Quiet console = respectable media centre.

    Re: Features - QOTW: what are your hopes for the next-generation Xbox?

    I am guessing BluRay (maybe some slightly proprietary MS variant of BD) and WiFi will be built-in, although the extra cost of them is slightly irritating as I cannot ever see myself using them on a console again.....

    I want it quieter then my HTPC which runs a 6950 GPU!!

    I want the graphics to rival my PC for the next 5 years...

    I want all 360 peripherals to work on it.

    I want backwards compatibility with 360 games, including the ability to enhance the gfx of older games.

    In a nutshell.....I pretty much want everything that we probably won't be getting

    Re: Features - QOTW: what are your hopes for the next-generation Xbox?

    TBH: I'm just not that bothered. Its going to cost more than my PC will cost to upgrade. I've owned pretty much every console released in the last 10 years but I always go back to the PC apart from the odd party game with the GF. I think i'll just get a Wii U this time and save the £s for my PC.

    Speaking practically, I think more memory, lots of it, to make life easier on developers and get te focus back towards content and to open possibilities such as MMOs that don't suck.

    Looks that don't make me vomit for starters (no xbox 1 was not "of it's time")
    I'm with cheesemp here, I've only got the PS3 left and that's only for bluray. Always back to the PC. I suppose if it became more than a just a console, perhaps a competitive TV service for starters? The main problem for them will be Apple's rumoured home entertainment device, for which it will be white and therefore breach Apple's patented colour.

    The 360 is deffinately showing its age, although Microsoft have done well to keep it updated via software updates and Kinnect.

    Honestly, I would love to see a cloud version of Xbox which would compete with OnLive and would nicely integrate with that Windows 8 functionality.

    I would like to see Microsoft open up the next gen console to be compatiable with Windows Phone apps. I don't want to be stuck to the Zune store for music, I want to choose myself with the likes of Spotify. If the next Xbox uses the Metro UI and a rumoured ARM architecture, then I don't see much of a problem of porting these apps. More sales in WP Marketplace is a win for developers and Microsoft.

    I want a CPU with 6+ Cores
    If AMD make the chip, as they might, I want at least 2000 shaders
    I want at least 4GB DDR3 RAM, maybe even 8GB as its so cheap
    I want 1TB of storage
    Built in Wireless N

    RAM, RAM and more RAM....for the tiny amount extra it costs (costs MS that is) I've never understood why it is always scarce.

    It wont have graphics that will match the PC for the next X years but some future proofing would be nice. I couldn't care less how many CPU cores/etc it has as long as it runs what it's meant to run at a decent frame rate
