Gamestop has recently been promoting the Next Xbox claiming

"it will be a very hot, very compelling device. They are doing some really cool stuff, and Iím eager to hear them start their announcements because I think the world is going to stand up and take notice."

i doubt they would do this if 2nd hand games were going to be banned on it, considering that would be a massive blow to Gamestops business
it might of been considered at some point by microsoft but i am assuming they decided that it would hurt them too much

i dont see why second hand games are an issue. surely the devs can just sell a $10 online pass to take  their cut of the second hand game market...or am i missing something?

I think it's more so, if you don't have internet, how are you going to activate the game and be able to play it.

Rumours are the Kinect 2.0 will have it all built in hence why the guy said this is our concept version of the IllumiRoom.

Not sure how the Kinect 2.0 would have a projector built in?

Still a Novelty. Unless it's wireless it wouldn't be much good for me.

Nothing wrong with novelty... my Wii U is a novelty ;).. but Lego City Undercover has got to be one of the better Lego games to come out in a while.

One reason I like the path Sony are taking with the PS4. No novelties as Spaz said, just concentrate on the console itself.

It's cool, but yeh, novelty. Not sure how much i would actually use it. It'd be a hassle setting it up everytime, and the Mrs probably wouldnt appreciate it.
I would also be concerned about how much extra processing power would be chewed up in having to render so much extra space

Interesting article about online (or lack thereof) requirements
http://www.tomshardware.com/news/Xbox-Infinity-Xbox-720-Durange-Always-On-DRM,22455.html

The full install and no need for a disk is actually a very attractive feature to me

lol this is funny. My understanding that if you have a modded xbox currently you can install to the HDD. Looks like the hackers made someone take notice.
