Default Improve the 360?

I love my 360 and every aspect of it, but it's now been 2 years and it usually takes that long for a new system to come out, so I was wondering, is there actually any way to improve the 360?

What do you mean by improve it?

Have you tried out Xbox Live?

Yeah, and I mean anything about the Xbox 360, to be honest, I can't see many things, so that's why I made this topic.

Heh, honestly, I don't think there's much. Basically, I'd just love a few more features over Xbox Live. Like... um. I dunno, lol..

And in response to Greg: Have YOU? I use it 3-4 hours a day average. I've payed for the 13 month membership twice, and I buy games and DLC all the time. Honestly, PSN and Wii don't even touch Xbox Live.

Yeah, I know what you mean, there really isn't much, it's the right size, does everything anyone needs and more, much more; all I can really think of is games, there's not many that actually challenge the 360 to it's full potential.

only improvement would be a bigger hdd. I would want a ps2 style controller, and I would consider it an improvement, but thats just me.

Yuck. PS2 controllers hurt my hands and are uncomfortable.

I prefer ps2 because I can't use my right hand. try using the 360 w/ just your left hand and tell me how you do.

console lifetime is usually 5+ years, unless you mean a slim version but they just started selling the full lineup of 360's with hdmi so i doubt they'll be making a slim anytime soon.

So is your right hand dead weight? (Not trying to be rude, just don't know what else to say about it)

I would like it if the OS was a little faster. It's gotten faster but it loads things like gamer pictures and messages rather slowly. Overall if your hardware is solid it is a wonderful system. I've had 5 of them now so it's been the best and the worst for me . I would like some useless secondlife feature like sony is getting with Home as well.

^we dont need anything like that cluttering up our systems and networks. keep the focus on the games and not the extra crap that's unnecessary.

The thing the Xbox 360 needs right now is RELIABILITY.

I'm sick of the RRoD, Disc tray not ejecting, freezes, and all the other BS there is. Halo 3 won't even play anymore

the new 65nm falcon chip/motherboard and new dvd drive fix all those problems. im selling my 360 with 1 wireless controller, memory pack and a couple old games for $240 without the hdd and buying a new arcade pack with hdmi for the $50 difference. problem solved for little loss.

Only thing that needs to be fixed is the hardware. I've had my 360 repaired 3 times now. I never heard of anyone having problems with the Xbox so what did they do wrong with the 360.

^they didnt do extensive long term testing so they could reach the market before sony. the current hardware configuration is completely stable though... they've fixed the problems that plague earlier consoles.

True.. I think I still have a Xenon(got it back in July of 2006, hasn't ****ed up since) but I'm worried it still might break one day.
