From: TotalFootball | #007 Aside from improved hardware, Sony has to look at an interface redevelopment. They have to implement features that customers want, and they have to be solid. I think it's a better marketing opportunity to launch a new console with updated hardware, a more robust feature set, and a new vision than to try and sell an old machine with a new firmware update.

1. Faster Blu-Ray. With Blu-Ray read speeds as fast as DVD speeds, DVDs officially die.
2. RAM upgrade. One of the biggest issues is memory limitation. Just a small upgrade is all that is needed. And given how inexpensive RAM is nowadays, it can't be too expensive to put 1GB + per console.
3. I'm sure there are already a ton of architectural upgrades for the Cell in the books. But we all know that it needs some work. Also maybe be a little more user-friendly.
4. Upgrade its wireless adapter (just for the selling point of saying it's upgraded, basically)
