    The 360 didn't have any of those things until later on except achievements. Not to mention Microsoft stole hardware from Sony and even then they still could not beat them

    I have an idea for nintendo: the nintendo ultimate. It can play all of the past cartridges it has multiple cartridge slots for multiple console games.
    And it fan be portable or a home console. And it can play dvd and blueray.
