X360: Xbox 720 and the next gen is big, big news, so we spoke to industry analyst Michael Pachter to find out just how far off it really is…
If it's not out until 2014, then I will leave.
Wait, leave where?
leave yo momma
I think it will be November. I don't know if they will show it from now until E3 or what but 2013 or 2014, MS's biggest release month of their top game Halo, the launch of Xbox and LIVE I am pretty sure almost all happens in Nov.
Xmas next year!
I somewhat agree. The announcement will come next yr but they will surely release it in 2014. Lets just wait and see.
Is he ever wrong? Because I don't know if I can wait that long!!
current gen Xbox 360 is doing fine. we all want newer hardward but honestly, if the current xbox is dominating the market, has great 3rd party support, growing games library, and is making money for Microsoft, then there's no reason to expect the 720. I feel we've yet to see the best of either the Xbox 360 or PS3.
Honestly you have seen the best of MS in 2008. And current xbox is not dominating the market they currently being outsold for the year world wide. But yeah I see your point
This is a Sony centrism site how dare you claim Microsoft is dominating anything even though it is backed up by facts and figures and not fanboyism. /s On topic: I'm expecting a holiday release but I would love to see: 08/08/2013 for the Xbox 8 that is marketing gold.
We've seen the best. It's time to move on to new tech. Start saving kid.
I think it's time for Next Gen cause i'm starting to draw away from my PS3 and onto a gaming rig cause all the games now aren't that amazing except for like Last of Us and Watch Dogs.
I disagree that we have not seen the best this generation has to offer. From a video game perspective. The real issue: Is there enough technology advancement out there to make a next generation? I am not sure there is... Sure there could be graphical improvements which would off modest gains. There certainly won't be much sound improvement, so we are left with gameplay and AI improvements. Is there enough new technology horse power to significantly improve gameplay mechanics and/or AI? I don't think so...
That's a long while away, but I always take Pachter's words with a grain of salt. Fortunately, there'll be enough games coming out on both the ps3 and 360 to keep me gaming until then.
hes always wrong 2014 dammm you must be on that hydro dude, pass some pat
Yep. His prediction instantly makes Holiday 2013/2014 more probable.
Man Halo 6 would be out by then lol
Obvious troll is obvious. 2007-2012 for the next game in the series. Halo 3 - 2007 Halo 4 - 2012 Don't see how Halo 6 could be out by then.
Shut up it was a joke! People are so emotionally attached to a machine it's crazy
your right there will be probable like 20 halos before halo 6
WEll with that logic, Uncharted 7, Rachet and Clank 1 billion, Little Big Planet 5, Motorstorm Universe Festival will be out by then also. Works both ways trolls.
Uhhh.... Reach? ODST? CE Anniversary? Maybe even count Halo Wars? There's been Halo of one kind or another almost every year. (Not saying that a game named Halo 6 would be out by then, but it's not like there's 5 years between releases).
2013 E3 reveal and winter release
yep. That's what i think as well.
And i think E3 13 they will show what can do PS4 and XBOX720 and somewhere holidays will released them
Pachter is a twat says me, E3 2013 reveal then Winter release in time for Xmas. And if it's fully backwards compatible then that's even better for the transition.
I guess it's not launching anytime around spring 2014 then.
If it's ever out before November 2014, it'll just scream "rush". All the current consoles still have kick in them, and the next gen titles need more time to cook.
it's more likely to be fall 2014, really. @ esemce: you're right about the 2013 E3 reveal, but the pattern is always - E3 reveal year X, E3 year Y they go into more detail and announce specs/release date. they never release a system the year they first reveal it at E3.
"They never release a system the year they first reveal it at E3". What about the 360?
Exactly, what was this guy talking about. Xbox 360 was launched the same year of it's E3 reveal. Neg bubble for that guy.
Exactly tigertron, Hey Pachter, Xbox360 was revealed E3 2005<->released Holidays 2005.
Just stop talking Pachter. He is crazy if he thinks that Sony and MS will just hand Nintendo a 2 year head start. Regardless of how low the specs are, the average consumer will see it as the new thing and jump on board.
Well, wouldn't the same thing happen when MS and Sony decide to release their machines also? The WiiU will look like a turd, if MS and Sony wait two more years to release, I mean it is close to being a turd at the moment with the PS3 and 360 nearly equal to it. As much as I would like a new XBOX and PS in 2013, I can see them releasing in 2014.
