    We'll have to see, obviously this thing is not in a real form yet - just a concept.

    I don't see how you'll be able to get gamers to do a pay-per-play if they are spending their money on a broadband connection already.

    And the system is not better or different than XBOX, only in the speed of the processor (2.4GHz). The other consoles are offering online gaming - for pay already - so this company will have to put something better out there.

    I also, not sure how they will go about the memory - it should be way more than 8gigs as in XBOX as u have to download the games - I personally like buying a DISC and having it around for as long as I need it - if they don't give the system enough mem games will have to be replaced in mem after you've payed for them, after you download a new title.

    --It would be neat if the console played Windows Games - so you can play a PC title in a console - you might get a lot better performance as the OS is not consuming as much CPU.
