Its processing power is in line with high-end PC specs, and might even eclipse them come Christmas next year
very well put together article, enjoyed reading this to hype up my expectations for E3, possibly an announcement or info regarding some of this. Although it will most likely be simple disappointment for me though come E3 lol. But i agree with the point made about live, in my opinion, i own a xbox360 and ps3, xbox live is superior when it comes to a streamlined experience in the online world but sony is more true to the experience. i really think xbox live needs to become a more centralized place for gaming then this costly advertisement hub. While XBL is turning into a media hub i feel it is extremely important to keep gaming the center piece of the service and not just an option as it seems theyre are turning it into. they need to let those mobile and indie developers really utilize the service to bring the same fans onto the console while gaining new fans who already will own it and are discovering content like so many who download XBL Arcade games. Also i think the financial restrictions need to ease up to the point that some new developers can jump on board and offer new game choices like free to play downloadable games like the current pc market. All in all i like the direction theyre trying to take the service from its humble beginnings to now, its been quite a transition but they really need to open up the service to fully utilize the full potential of the service.
So ready for next-gen it isn't funny anymore.
I still wish they'd go for a stronger GPU to help compliment the 6 physical CPUs. But then again, a lot can already be done with the Radeon 7000 series horsepower.
As long as its backwards compatible so I could play my old 360 games than I'm good
OMG no wonder developers choose not to fix games sometimes... Just a simple XBLA patch costing around $40K??? Get out of here!!! They sure are a greedy company...
As with all overly hyped and fictional articles, Id like to hear both sides of the story before making any conclusions. Gotta love shock and awe journalism.
Funny enought Im sure I read some where that the first patch for any game on XBL is for free?
Know wonder Crytek never fixed Crysis 2s grain glitch. I can see Sony doing what MS did to get to the top, catering to 3rd parties.
Regardless if your a sony, ms, or pc fan, you gotta be excited for next gen in consoles. Many of todays games are ports from consoles to the pc, so the visuals on those games using dx11 will only continue to improve with a wider audience. As a gamer, competition is always a good thing to kept game developers working hard for our gaming dollars.
