OK - So I have been thinking about the next console "war"...

The PlayStation 4 (+Sony PlayStation, #PS4) will be a very different console to the #PS3, a whole new hardware system, moving away from proprietary hardware to a more universal x86 based system (more like a #PC).
The controller has been redesigned quite allot adding a 'light bar' a 'share' button and a touch sensitive area as well as making it lighter and faster (as far as I have read).

The "Next Xbox, Xbox 720, Durango etc." (#Xbox720) will be mostly the same as the #360 as far as I can tell, just with a very nice upgrade.
The #360's controller is reported to also be very much the same as it's predecessors with just the size becoming smaller. Obviously +Microsoft Corp. have not officially announced or released details of the next console they will be releasing.

The "Steam Box" (+Steam , +Valve ,#SteamBox) is an entirely new console from a #PC based company. The console/PC hybrid is reported to be a very powerful, very small #PC based on the +Linux and +Valve Linux OS and system that will "not look out of place in the living room", as for controllers and the like there are no details that I can find.

OK - Now onto my thoughts...
I like what I have seem about the #PS4, I like the look of the controller, it looks like it will fit better and more comfortably in my giant hands. I really like the inclusion Share Button, I have been thinking of making gaming videos for a while but never got around to it because of financial, performance, and time costs; the share button will negate these issues - at least on/for the #PS4. As it stands now I think that is all I can put my opinion on.

My opinions on the next #Xbox console are very limited as no real details have been released. Apparently the Controller is almost exactly the same as the current generation's, I personally do not own an Xbox 360 but I do own an Xbox 360 controller for my PC and I do like it, maybe even more then the #PS3's controller, it feels nicer in my large hands and even with my C.M.T (Disability) my hands do not cramp or feel fatigued as quickly as the do with the PS3 controller.

As for the Steam Box again no details have really been released but this should be much easier to speculate, it will most certainly be based on the x86 architecture just like any #PC you can buy or build today. We do know it will have a Linux based OS possibly with a +Windows 8 option. It will run +Steam and that is how you will get to, purchase and play your games. The console will (IMO) need to have a multi core (4+) x64 CPU, at least 8GB of RAM (Preferably GDDR5) and hopefully expandable too a 32GB limit would be nice, it will also need a very powerful expandable GPU, the storage would need to be upgradable as well 2-3 drive bays would be preferred.

For what I think could be improved, added etc to the consoles;

All - Make sure this time the internet WiFi system can keep up, all the consoles should come fitted with internal IEEE 802.11ac.
Fast HDDs/SDDs and make them upgradable without proprietary restrictions.
More to come I am sure.

PS4 - TBH I am not sure right now what could be added to or improved upon with the PS4, /i will have to get back to you.
Xbox720 - Add a Blu-ray drive. Console "War" winning idea make the next Xbox console duel boot to windows (7 & 8) and you WIN this generation, all the benefits of a console AND all the benefits of a PC including +Steam . - If you did this I would by one day 1.

Steam box - just make sure its as easy to upgrade as a PC and your doing fine!

So that wall of text is/are my thoughts on the next console "war". any input?

I seriously doubt the 2 10MP cameras... But I do know it'll have a wider viewing angle, which I welcome greatly!

Anyone else waiting for a #Nexus version of +Google TV ?

I love the idea of +Google TV but the only one that looks any good is the +Sony version (http://www.sony.co.uk/hub/google-tv) and to be honest I have had a few +Sony / +Google products and the updates either take a very(!) long time to come or never come at all. I think I personally will have to wait for a #Nexus version of +Google TV .

Does anyone have any news if one is coming?

Any thoughts or comments?

Indeed +Yogesh Mandell I can't believe I forgot #NFC... The #NexusQ uses #NFC to allow you to automatically download the +Google Play app and pair with the #NexusQ, the #Nexus +Google TV could do the same thing or more; first scan (if without the app on your phone) would download the app, second scan (or first if you have the app already) would pair/register the phone(s) or other accessories, as for other scans or #NFC features I can't think of any.

Joy, joy, joy!

OK so I have had my #nexus4 for a few days now and I could not be happier I don't think.

I am loving it. Truly.

It is very snappy, even in Chrome which allot of reviewers had problems with, I have noticed no issues even with the pinch-to-zoom, it's been very accurate for me. - And I have been looking for them.
It's even faster at loading most apps then my TF700t, especially the #Netflix app.

I am finding the battery is lasting all day with moderate use, without playing games though. I would imagine that with games it would need a late afternoon/early evening charge top-up.

The screen is very nice, crisp, bright and easy to see/use.
I am not seeing any "yellowish tinge" at the bottom of the screen that others seem to have experienced. - also something I have been looking for.

Am I lucky? - I couldn't say.

I have to say though the camera is not great in low light, maybe even not as good my old Sony Ericsson X10i. I guess though it's the trade off for a camera that is decent in well lighted places as well as the great new features.

I will keep posting about my experiences with my new #Google #LG #Nexus4 every now-and-then.

OUCH!
 

              For LADIES: Do you like to wear High Heels?        
 
 Then please read this
Prolonged wearing of high heels can cause a permanent damages like bunions, hammertoes, leg tendons.. This are mainly caused due to pressure on ball of the foot. The higher the heels, the greater is the pressure. This can also affect the knee and back.So on wearing high heels continuously you are increasingly damaging you feet.If you love your health be cautious

The things I would like to see for a #Nexus +Google TV ;

⚫A good quad core CPU; which one? I'm not sure but the one in the #Nexus4 would be plenty good enough I would imagine.
⚫3GB of RAM for a decent amount of future proofing.
⚫ OK for the storage I would personally love to see 32/64GB of built in storage with either an internal compartment for slotting in a 1.8" HDD/SSD or the usual USB expandable storage capability.
⚫ It will need the usual sockets; (at least) 2 #USB, 1 of each in/out (2 preferred) #HDMI sockets, Ethernet (1000), maybe an IR Blaster, optical audio in/out, if it has the #NexusQ feature it will probably need some good audio out as well.
⚫As for the looks, personally I would love it to look just like the #NexusQ.
⚫ I would also like #WiFi IEEE 802.11n at the minimum, IEEE 802.11ac preferred for future proofing.
⚫ It will need a very nice remote and also be able to use an #Android as well as #Apple phone as a remote, add far as the controller is concerned I would love to see a set of 'normal' (play, pause etc.) controls on one side and a full QWERTY keyboard with a touch-pad on the other. I would like it to be a #Bluetooth remote (like #PS3) with a hold button/switch - I am sure anyone with a child and a #PS3 remote will tell you they wish it had a holds button/switch. For some nice extras for the remote I would like to see it have a mic and speaker in a phone like way do you can use the remote as an 'phone' for apps like #Skype.

Edit:
#NFC, NFC could be used for pairing phones/headphones etc., automatic app downloads, playing music/videos etc.

I think that's all I can think of right now so I will leave it here.

If you have anything to add, please feel free to comment and also to share.

My # Nexus4 has arrived. Very happy so far, it destroys my old X10.

When I started it up for the first time it asked me if I wanted to restore my old phone, thinking it was just contracts etc I clicked yes...

To my surprise it did everything, old emails, apps etc all from the cloud. It was very fast too.
#Google know there stuff.

Off to play with it some more.

I like this cinema. They do not stop you bringing in your own food and drink as long as it's not hot/cooked. It pretty good for disabled people, but could be better. Could use more staff on the tills even at less busy times you may have to queue because the one person serving (tickets and food) can't/won't keep you with demand.
