As the title suggests, what delusions of grandeur and sweet dreaming bliss make up your video gaming wish list? More specifically, what do you want from gaming that has no more than a slight snowball's chance in hell of happening?
For me the answer is simple and has been on my mind since I first started playing over Xbox live back in 2005. I want cross platform multiplayer gaming between the 360, PS3, Wii and Pc. I realize that a few games have this between the 360 and Pc(and upcoming with the PS3 and Pc) but I want the whole damn shebang. We already get multiplatform games so why not multiplatform gaming?
I have several friends(both on these boards and elsewhere) who only have a PS3 and haven't decided to take the leap to the 360 yet. And on the flip side of that same coin, many PS3 owners have 360 friends who haven't made the leap to the PS3 yet. It would be so nice if we could all play with our friends online regardless of which platform we had. And then of course theres the matter of fanboys finally getting to go console vs console. I'm sure that would be amusing....for a little while(especially if they are all your acquaintances), but eventually it would be yet another vehicle for fanboy bitching. But theres enough bitching over Xbox live now so it wouldn't change much.
I know that Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft playing nice together online would never happen in a billion years, but thats the whole point of it being a pipe dream. Then again, ten years ago did you ever think we'd finally see WCW vs. WWE vs ECW wrestling matches? And did you also think that a mere few years after that we'd finally get to see the UFC vs Pride to unify the titles for each weight class from both organizations(despite the fact that Fedor still won't sign and theres a few other Pride guys who haven't made the leap yet)?
So pipe dreams do come true sometimes. Of course, both of those scenarios were based on one of the rival companies going bankrupt and getting purchased by the other. And Sony, Nintendo and especially Microsoft are not anywhere near being endanger of going bankrupt. But a guy can dream can't he? Anyway, what are you guys(and ladies) pipe dreams for this gen or next gen?
