    Looking back at the E3 2005 announcement of the Xbox 360 its easy to see a lot has changed, not just on the Xbox 360 console, however the franchises and games that are on the 360 too.

    Pretty interesting to look at how things have changed over the years, however bring on the next console!

    As far as I can remember Xbox 360 was one of the first consoles to allow the user to copy & transfer games (full/trial/demo), applications, gamesaves (even modify if needed) and other goodies.

    PlayStation 3 had its goodness too, though it only allowed to transfer music, videos and some gamesaves (others were console-locked).

    Great gen this is has been.

    Will there be anything 4K related to next xbox? I.e., the PS4 will be capable of playing 4k videos.
