What should the console be like? What are deal-breakers for most folk? Just curious.
A few things aside from other things I've seen posted: it should definitely be blue-ray compatible, and 3D compatible. Gamerscore, avatar, and live account should not change, and the 360 should continue to be supported. Connecting old and new consoles should be an option.
Deal breakers for me? If backwards compatibility doesn't exist and/or used game discs are no longer allowed, I will not be purchasing. I have enough games for the 360 alone to last me the next 20 years, many unopened. I have 3 of those, and 3 PS3's with similar backlog of games. games also need to be compatible with simple controllers and not-kinect required or there will be no need for my disabled self to be buying. Ditto competitiveness: one's experience and ability should not be lessened simply because a disability keeps them from using motion-controls. The camera needs to be unhackable, with a manual shutter to ensure it cannot be on without user knowledge.
