i think it coming to the xbox360 or xbox-next-gen are equally plausible, definitely since that game trailers tv host said they will debut the next generation of gaming onduring E3 on their show. that could easily mean anything (wiiU, unreal enne 4 tech demo,etc.) but i could definitely see this being shown off as a new title running on the unreal engine 4 but not announced for any system, and that would certainly indicate to the audience it would be on some mystery console in the future.

Rumor has it, the next Xbox would have an upscale chip built in it specifically for games, so...

PerpetualMathx102119d ago (Edited 2119d ago )

so what would an upscale system do for the system?

WrAiTh Sp3cTr32119d ago

It up-scales this generation of games to look better on new hardware. Just like up-scaling of dvds.

ardivt2118d ago

I really doubt it as this chip probably would be quite costly. just look at how it made the first ps3 models expensive

Gears of War Judgment is releasing on Xbox 360 late 2013, a friend of mine has the Game Informer Issue and very kindly e-mailed me scans... Being someone who's been with the franchise since day one, the changes described in the magazine are both awesome and yet leave me somewhat apprehensive. But regardless the game sounds amazing. PM me if you want specific details, I'm always happy to discuss Gears...

I'm sure Gears Of War 4 will be on the next Xbox, but Gears Of War Judgement is going to be on the Xbox 360.

Xbox next has to be out soon because windows 7 will play Xbox 360 games and that will kill sells.

lashes2ashes2118d ago

I hope you mean windows 8, I'm having a hard time getting my laptop to play Xbox games.

Moncole2118d ago

Yeah that what I mean. I made a typo.

dark-hollow2118d ago (Edited 2118d ago )

This "windows 8 will play all xbox games" rumor is ridiculous for various reasons.

First off, to assume that's windows 8 will simply play any 360 game by just putting the game and play it means that the obvious method for doing this is through emulation of the 360 hardware.

Do you know how you need a beast of a pc to emulate the 360? We are probably good 5 years before we have even the hardware enough to emulate the 360 at steady frames.

And for those who says "but my pc is way more powerful than the 360" yes you are right, looking but emulation is a totally different beast, hell you'll probably have problems with emulating gamecube games and those are more than 10 years old!

So what would make sense is ms porting halo, gears and whatever to the pc instead of emulating the whole hardware.

Whoever disagrees with this guys comment has no clue how emulation works.

Download a ps2 or xbox 1 emulator just to see how bad emulation is with relatively new systems. The PC hardware required to emulate relatively new systems is extreme. The average person won't be able to do it, you will get better stability on gaming pcs but it still won't be perfect.

Moncole2118d ago (Edited 2118d ago )

I know how emulation works, I have a PS2 and Gamecube emulator on my PC that run a steady 60FPS. MS is probably able to program an emulator into Windows 8 that works like a regular program and not like a Gamecube emulator or PS2 emulator.

dark-hollow2118d ago (Edited 2118d ago )

"regular program and not like a Gamecube emulator or PS2 emulator."

Regular program? I don't know what you mean but it simply not possible only through emulation the original hardware.

Xbox got PowerPC processor while PCs CPUs are X86. the architecture is simply different, I know that Microsoft is better positioned than anyone to build a JIT compiler to translate the PowerPC instructions to x86, but there is no current pc that can run it at steady frames.

And its not like ms gonna pull magical software out of their asses that ableto do this. The only way to do it is through emulation.

look at the xperia play, even though its from Sony but it doesn't run ps1 natively but Sony made a special emulature for it to run those games.
