New Console Wish List

Yet another generation of consoles is about to crawl out onto the market in the next couple of years. Xbox 720 is apparently making an appearance at E3 2012. I’m not sure if Nintendo’s Wii U is supposed to be their replacement for the Wii. I really hope not. Sony hasn’t made any official plans for a PS4 but inevitably, it will be unveiled.

Anyway, the point of this article is to point of what features I would love to see in a PS4 console.

Multitasking – I want to be able to listen to music while I’m gaming.

Bigger Hard Drives – Two Terabytes minimum would be nice.

Complete Game Installation – When I buy a game, I’d like the option to be able to install it on to the hard drive and never have to touch the CD again unless I decide I need to reinstall.

Android – This one’s pushing it a little but the Android OS has huge potential to be an idea operating system to run a console. I would love to be able to install basic applications on my game console.

21 and Over Gaming – I want a gaming network that doesn’t have snotty illiterate rude little brats on it. If you’ve ever gamed on the internet, you know the ones. How about a network where you apply to join and have to prove you’re 21 or older and you can be banned for life if you let your kid use it? This is why I really miss private gaming networks run by an admin who is usually playing too. I have a dream!

I know I sound like an old fart crybaby PC gamer but I like gaming on consoles too. Those games with more pretty cut scenes than actual gaming kind of games are awesome on consoles. Anyway, that’s what I would include in the next big console if I was asked.
