It’s a safe bet the the generation of home video game consoles will come with motion and video devices as standard. But an honest question; What other current technology would make the next Xbox and PlayStation the bee’s knees?
Built-in streaming and recording. Be it YouTube, twitchTV, blipTV or what have you, everone wants to be a producer of content. Add that more gamers find themselfs playing game less and watching games more. It feels like a natural step.
Instead of having “PilgrimPud is playing Super Street Fighter 4 Ranked Match” why not have the option of watching me get my ass kicked and bust my balls via chat and text? GGPO allows it!
Streams would no longer require hundreds or thousands of dollars to create. More players can communicate in different ways. Being in a video chat while my training mode is streamed is a lot easier to show new luchadors the timing of an RSF than typing “ta-taka, ta-taka” on these forums.
Recording matches then uploading those files to a PC for editing would make combo videos a ton more easy to create.
Apps. Simply put Words With Friends on your Xbox.
