XBOX 720 (is it real?)

Do you also play with non-PlayStation devices? Do you enjoy playing as a plumber saving a princess? Or some bald marines? Or maybe you want to play using the touchscreen?

I don't think it is. This movie takes place in the year 2020.

It's the same as the Nike Future Air and the Mattel Hoverboard from Back to the Future.

Lumabas ang XBOX 360 noong Nov 22, 2005. Kung makikita natin sa E3 eto next year, most likely ibebenta din sya ng around Nov 2012 para sa darating na Thanksgiving Holiday para malaki ang benta kasi eto ang largest holiday shopping sa america. So mga 7 years na eto. Pero i doubt na ilalabas nila eto ng 2012 kasi mabenta parin ang XBOX 360. So prediction ko 2013 na lalabas ang XBOX 720.

Kung ako ang SONY tapatan nila ang pag launched ng XBOX 720 same month or late lang sila ng 3 months - 6 months. Hindi na sila pwede mag pa late ng 1 year dahil matatalo na sila sa bentahan. Tsaka simplehan lang nila iyong pag program ng mga games. I'm not sure if SONY will include a backward compability, ngayong down ang market. They need to sell it the same price ng XBOX 720 or mahal lang ng $20 - 50. Kung magagawa nila iyon i'm pretty sure they can beat Microsoft in their own game.

I think backward compatibility is important now more than ever thanks to the PS Store and trophies. This also applies to Xbox.

Sayang naman kung bibili ka ng PS4, sabay di matatransfer iyung trophies.

XBOX 720: We want to see

The Xbox 720 specs will be a significant technological leap forward

The Xbox 360 was launched in 2005, with the best technology that 2004 had to offer. Inside, it used a custom-made IBM Power PC with a trio of 3.2GHz cores and an ATI graphics processor.

Compare this ageing specification to a 2011 PC like the Scan 3XS Vengeance. It rocks the latest Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge CPU, Nvidia GTX 580 graphics card, 1TB of onboard storage and 8GB of DDR3.

Cevat Yerli, the boss at Crytek, believes that the PC is effectively a generation ahead of the Xbox 360 and PS3. "As long as the current console generation exists and as long as we keep pushing the PC as well, the more difficult it will be to really get the benefit of both," Yerli spilled to Edge.

Something has got to give.

Xbox 720 storage and disc format

Cloud storage? We might not be ready to abandon physical media just yet. But Steam has served PC users well for several years and OnLive is turning heads.

The most obvious next-gen storage option for the next Xbox is Blu-ray. But Microsoft has refused to add it to the existing Xbox 360. Other alternatives? You'll find flag-wavers for flash drives, Nintendo-style game cartridges, even the resurrection of HD-DVD.

Xbox 720 processor and graphics

Considering that the Xbox 360 Slim now features a 'Vejle' CPU/GPU combo processor, KitGuru ponders the possibility of the new Xbox 720 getting a cutting-edge AMD Fusion chip. It's betting on the DX11-capable Krishna APU (Accelerated Processing Unit), due for release late 2012.

Semi Accurate believes the new chip will actually be called Obed and incorporate elements of IBM design - however it seems AMD is nailed on as the manufacturer.

AMD reckons it will be a beast of a machine, pumping out graphics that offer Avatar-levels of detail. James Cameron's opus used CGI and 3D capturing, with each minute of footage costing $1 million to make.

Not only will the console be capable of Avatar-style graphics, according to Neal Robison, AMD's director of ISV relationships, it will also feature improved artificial intelligence and physics capabilities.

This could mean that each individual incidental character – like the pedestrians in Grand Theft Auto, for example – could each take on their own individual personality.

The 'bigger, better, more' ethic is what makes the games industry tick. Eat Sleep Play founder David Jaffe suggests we desperately need a new generation of high-end consoles to keep producing 'blockbuster' games like Battlefield 3, Crysis 2 and LA Noire. "Gameplay travels very easily," Jaffe told IGN. "The spectacle doesn't."

EA's Frank Gibeau disagrees. "Obviously, more computing horsepower is nice, but to be honest, the Xbox 360 and PS3 still have a lot of horsepower that hasn't been tapped."

In October 2011 it was reported that developers were prepping games that could run on a new console.

Epic's Mark Rein suggests that a tablet might be the shape of consoles to come. "Imagine a future Xbox 360 that is actually a tablet you carry around," Rein told Develop last year. "It will have more power than 360 does today, with technology like Kinect built right in…"

What about the Xbox 720 controller?

Love it/hate it, gesture-control is here to stay. Expect an improved version of Microsoft's Kinect hardware to be a prominent feature of any new Xbox. Kinect is currently the world's "fastest selling consumer electronics device" with sales topping 10 million. A Guinness World Record.

But the game pad will remain the input device of choice for veteran gamers. We can't imagine playing Gears of War 4 by waving our arms around. It lacks precision.

Could the next Xbox run Windows 8?

Microsoft wants to create an ecosystem of apps and games that work between Windows Phone, Windows and the next Xbox. But could that mean the new gaming console could run a variant of Windows 8 as Gamerant suggests?

The Xbox 720 release date is 2013. Or 2014. Or 2015…

Microsoft has said publically that the Xbox 360 will have (at least) a 10-year life lifespan to match the PS3. That puts a new Xbox launch into 2015…

Senior execs for a big US retailer told their shareholders in July 2011 that they don't expect the Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4 until 2014.

Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli feels that we're due a "new [console] generation in 2012, 2013." While M2 senior analyst Billy Pidgeon told NowGamer that, while he expects a Wii 2 to surface by 2012, he's "not expecting a next generation Xbox before Q4 2014."

The 2014-2015 timescale looks a good bet. Square Enix is already anticipating the Xbox 720 by planning to open a second Canadian development studio by 2012. "The new consoles from Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo will require more attention and more staff," said Stéphane d'Astous. "We want to prepare ourselves."

Bethesda's Todd Howard, game director for the forthcoming blockbuster Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, says that gamers should not expect follow-ups to the PS3 and Xbox 360 until 2014, at the very earliest.

Speaking to PSM3 magazine, the Bethesda exec said that gamers were happy with the current generation of console tech and that he didn't expect to see an Xbox 720 or a PlayStation 4 before 2014.

Backing this up is a comment made by a designer who has worked with Microsoft, who implied that a new Xbox 2015 release date is set. In his online portfolio, Ben Peterson wrote "Microsoft Xbox. Confidential / Collaboration with Microsoft's IEB design group investigating future user experiences and hardware for 2015."

Alongside an angled image that doesn't give much away, he wrote: "Microsoft Xbox. Confidential / Collaboration with Microsoft's IEB design group investigating future user experiences and hardware for 2015. *Work samples only permissible in person.* (March 2011)."

Question marks hang over such information; who is Ben Peterson? Didn't he sign an NDA when working with Microsoft? Why is there no contact information on his online portfolio? Will he be allowed to live after such a faux-pas? Or is this all a traffic-mongering lie?

Call of Duty developer Treyarch has also posted a job ad for people to work on a game "for a new console.

Also in early October 2011, an ad for the new system has also been spotted in a trailer for the film Real Steel.

But the next Xbox could be showcased at E3 2012

The successor to Microsoft's Xbox 360 console is likely to be unveiled at E3 2012, according to a "high-ranking source at Crytek". They said that TimeSplitters 4 is being developed for the next-generation console, using Microsoft's updated DX11 development tool. We're not so sure about that, but you never know...

Xbox 720 coming 2012 - to be announced at CES in January?
The Xbox 720, prospective successor to the Xbox 360 games console, could be on sale as early as next year. And Microsoft may even use the CES consumer electronics trade show in Las Vegas from 10 January to announce its existence.

Speaking to games industry website Edge, a source has revealed that Ubisoft Montreal (the development team behind Assassin's Creed Revelations) is "hard at work on target boxes based on the intended specifications of Microsoft's Xbox 360 successor". It is using PCs stacked with off-the-shelf components supplied by Microsoft itself, and there is a claim that the GPU has been or will be custom-built by AMD.

It has also been suggested that actual next generation devkits will be delivered to development houses before the Christmas break this year, leading Edge to make an experienced guess that retail units will arrive in 2012.

The site also claims that one developer has even started work on software for Sony's next console, currently dubbed PlayStation 4.

There are few other details on either new machine as yet, but with Pocket-lint attending CES in force, we'll be sure to pass on all the juicy gossip on both the Xbox 720 and PS4.
Xbox 720 gets official
While no official announcement has been made, rumors have been circulating for a while now that Microsoft plans on updating its Xbox console in 2012. Nintendo should be in Vegas showing off the Wii U to CES attendees, and Sony has its Vita handheld system to talk about — but with neither expected to announce big new projects, this leaves the door open for Microsoft to steal the gaming spotlight with the Xbox 720. 2012 is also Microsoft's last year at CES, so they'll want to make a big impact as they head for the door.

The Xbox 720 is rumored to have an AMD processor, Blu-ray disc drive, Windows 8 compatibility, and deeper Kinect integration than the Xbox 360.

^ Since US yung pinaka market ng Microsoft, I'm sure they wouldn't mind alienating the offline market. If this is true, they probably did enough research based on the number of their Xbox Live gold subscribers. I think dun sila talaga kikita eh. Their strategy for the 360 lately has been more of a multimedia device, where they offer subscription based content through xbox live. That's probably where they see their profit/revenue. So this wouldn't surprise me na yung online crowd yung gusto nila habulin.

But until then, rumors are just rumors. I think it's going to be suicidal for MS to go this route considering Sony announced they wouldn't do this for this generation. That's just my opinion, maybe they do know what they're doing and they think this is the right strategy for them.

RUMOR: VGLeak reported that according to the Durango Next Gen Xbox Development Kit, the Blu-ray disc will be merely just a software distribution medium, all games will be running from the hard drive, the disc is useless after the installation is complete. Kinect will be required to operate tech system, and Durango will have an "Always on, always connected" infrastructure, which requires an active network connection, and may be used to block used games. Edge Online also said this info is legitimate.

^
nakakasiguro ako ilalabas nila yan before E3. the rumor is bago matapos ang april. tapos BF4 ang demo nila.

yun disc install, matagal ng feature yan ng 360. optional lang naman siguro sa 720.
pero kapag ininstall mo sa hdd kelangan pa rin yun disc naksalang sa loob ng xbox as a pre-requisite.
