I never get tired of seeing that video. It's so cute when his sister starts chanting yes along with him, and then when he opens the other gift and says "Nintendo 64 remote control car."

Well if I wanted to play Xbox 360 games why would I get a next gen Xbox?

Haha, probably a shorter time than that. It's not like my gamerscore is a moving target. I don't even remember the last time I plugged in my 360.

I felt the same way about the Rayman demo. That said, if it came out on another platform without the Wii-U specfic levels I would definitely buy it!

Some people like backwards compatibility and would like to be able to store their 360, I'm sure. I mean, I'd certainly rather have as few consoles as possible out at any given time.

IF I buy the nextbox, then yes, I would like to be able to import my gamertag and achievements.

Why is this even a question? Gamertags carried over from the original Xbox to the 360, PC, Windows phone and Windows 8. Why would they not carry over to the next Xbox?

I have full expectations that my 360 XBLA digital purchaes will be playable on the NextBox and transferable at no extra charge.

If that is not the case, i do not see myself spending another dime on XBLA (which i've cautiously already subsided), let alone being an early adopter for the new platform.

Exactly.

I'm actually more interested in knowing how Sony is going to handle the conversion now that they, apparently, won't be using the Cell processor for their next console. What will happen to all those PSN games? Will they be emulated?

That becomes a big problem, the architecture change. How receptive will consumers be? They seemed to get over the double dips and getting BC taken away in a matter of years though with the PS3.

We have no conclusive info whether MS is sticking to the same architecture, but logic points to that being ideal move since they have not only XBLA, but Games on Demand system to continue to sell 360 games long after they are out of print...most of which are HD already and don't need investments made for a visual overhaul.
