    Possibly a rumor, but I've read that it won't be backwards compatible with older games which doesn't make sense. And it will be using a new IBM graphics chip instead of Nvidia.

    thats why it won't be backwards compatible. They've switched processor architectures, and video chips.

    Basically, they handed decisions over to the accounting department, they got tired of losing money on every box they sold (even if they did make money on software).

    They figure they have the market share, so they can adopt the same business model they run with windows--so i sure won't be getting the next xbox. M
