I can't wait till the 720 comes out.

IMO, if a console is still entertaining you at the end of its life cycle, then the company is doing something right, and will most likely carry that forward into the next gen.

No point in getting exited for a successor to a console that bores you unless you have concrete proof that its a major improvement. Wait and see what they reveal later this month.

I still play and purchase plenty of games, movies, xbla games, etc., but I suppose I'm just aching for some new hardware with better visuals.
Of course I'm still going to keep my 360 after the 720 comes out, but I think it's been a really long time since I've had a 360 so I suppose I want something new.

That's understandable. I thought you were tired of it because of the lack of first party games. Hopefully the rumors are true and all their games are being held back for the 720. Should be a good launch if it is.

Love the Xbox 360. I play it more than my PS3 that loves to just crash.
