With the next generation of Xbox set to be revealed in less than a week expectations are unsurprisingly sky-high.
Heres three things Microsoft should announce on May 21st but more than likely wont...
The revamped LIVE that debuted alongside the Xbox 360 back in 2005 is a very different animal to the quadrilateral heavy entertainment hub we have today. Theres no denying Microsofts online offering has always provided an experience worth paying for... that was of course until Sony raised the bar, with PlayStation Plus.
Free online play, why ask for that when you could ask for an Xbox equivalent to Sony's beloved PlayStation Plus? Well theres the thing, my betting is Microsoft will offer a PS Plus style service when the new Xbox launches, the worry is theyll keep online play locked behind it. Yes LIVE may lose a few Gold subscribers in the begin as they attempt to convince people its still worth paying for, but theres a lot to be said for earning the respect and good will of your customers, just ask Valve.
