Will you stick with MS next gen, or have they lost you>..!?
It depends. I hate their new multimedia stance and the ads on Live that I pay for, and basically all the stuff others hate. How much I hate it depends on what else they do, and what Playstation does as well. I won't know until awhile into the next gen actually.
I got the RROD, MS fixed it under warranty although it was out of warranty. Then the magnet that holds the disc broke, MS said it'll be $$ to fix, so I called back & told them I had a RROD & to send me a coffin, it came back fixed at no charge! 3 or 4 months later it would play a game for about 5 to 10 minutes then shut off. I pawned it (they only kept it on for a minute lol) and all my games & got a PS3 fat. Been working fine and now have 60+ games for it, never a problem. I feel bad for the poor sap who bought it from the pawn shop & for those who went through a similar experience and still stayed with MS.
What I do is none of your concern. Please stop prying into my personal decisions, and I don't have to answer this if I feel it to be invasive.

I'll have to see what MS is offering, how it stacks up to the competition, and what games are available.
Too soon to say right now.

They've lost me. 2008 and the NXE was such a wonderful time, but it's just been rushing headlong down the slope of terrible ever since. It was fun, but now it's time to say goodbye.

Personally, I'm afraid they've lost me, after 3 extremely poor E3 showings where it's been clear that they've shifted their focus towards Kinect and Dashboard apps.
I'm with you TC...MS has definitely been losing me as well these past few years, however, unlike you, XBLA really hasn't amused me. With their focus being more on Kinect, XBLA, apps & just riding out the past 5 years on rehashes, it really has been a disappointing gen for me as well. Sure there have been some nice new IPs, but really nothing that has grabbed me. Pretty much the only franchise that has grabbed me has been gears and even that is getting old with all of the rehashes they are starting to turn out with that series as well. While the PS3 is guilty of this as well, they have at least invested in future IPs as well. Sony lost me this gen but it is looking more & more like they are going to get me back next gen, unless MS shows me they can still care about gaming..which is very doubtful. E3 last year was really the last straw for me and it's going to take something super huge to get me back but there aren't even any rumors of anything huge (except a new console).
I'm gonna wait and see what the failure rate is and maybe wait for a revision where it's corrected.
Do unto others what your parents did to you.
Depends on the pricing and/if my friends get one which I doubt they will on release. If it's past $500, I'm going to build a computer and become part of the elite master race.
