Why cant microsoft upgrade the 360s ram to 1GB instead of the standard 512mB ram?

That's hardly the only thing it needs upgrading.
Isn't that right, Zach?

because it is a waste. any game requiring 1GB would be guaranteed to be a flop and sell poorly even if it were Halo 5 or Call of Duty 10. people are not going to rebuy a current gen console marketed as the next gen console

Because Sega tried the same thing with the Genesis and they just about killed themselves.

Because RAM is hardware, not software.

RAM is a lot like your desk. The bigger it is, the easier it is to do stuff on it and the easier it is to do multiple tasks on it. While you can try to be more organized, that only goes so far before you just need to buy a bigger desk to replace your current one.

While they could technically make something to plug in to add RAM, relying on additional accessories to make games work doesn't tend to work well. Console owners like the ease of being able to just put in a game and it works without having to buy additional stuff for it like you would with a PC.
