This is interesting news. I'm assuming the one without the HD will have some sort of memory for saves. Either that or Memory card makers will pump it up a notch.

I also didn't realise XBox Next was gonna run windows and PC games. Pretty cool. Hope it isn't too expensive

Wow windows and PC games, I wonder what kind of programs would be able to run under it, if not all of them.

This "cost friendly", thing should have been introduced when Xbox first came out I could have bought a memory card easily, it took me too long to afford Xbox, it was insanely exapensive when it first came out.

I think that its too soon for Xbox to have another console, I say let Xbox enjoy the popularity that Halo gave them for a while to sell more systems and the games their starting to release, then think about another system.

Maybe I’m going to sound stupid here, but I thought the XB2 was going to use solid state to help crack down on the piracy. Or I could just be remembering wrong. >_> *walks off*

Plans change...stilll this is cutting it to thin. OH well least it's not like that triforce hookup from nintendo 0.O

The people who makes the memory cards are going to have to increase the size of the memory cards by a lot. There are a few games who's save file can't even fit on the current memory card. I think that's pretty stupid to release it without a hard drive and release one with the hard drive. The main reason Xbox owners have Xbox is Halo and the hard drive so they don't have to worry about memory cards.

Ya, but if you think about it, it might be a dumb idea. People will buy it though, if only for a few games people will buy whatever version they have to.

If they are going to remake a new XBOX2, they better make it less clunky...and make the controllers smaller...and less...big. o_O;

Nah it just a "limited" edition Xbox XD.

I don't know what microsoft was thinking when they first released Xbox's Sandwich controller, I'll just stick with my controller S....
