If it's not out until 2014, then I will leave.

NukaCola2096d ago

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!

Thatguy-3102096d ago

I somewhat agree. The announcement will come next yr but they will surely release it in 2014. Lets just wait and see.

Dailynch2096d ago

Is he ever wrong? Because I don't know if I can wait that long!!

mewhy322096d ago

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.

Ryo-Hazuki2096d ago (Edited 2096d ago )

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

ApolloAdams2096d ago

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.

konnerbllb2096d ago

We've seen the best. It's time to move on to new tech. Start saving kid.

WeskerChildReborned2096d ago

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.

ThatsGaming2095d ago

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.

iNFAMOUZ12096d ago

hes always wrong 2014 dammm you must be on that hydro dude, pass some pat

konnerbllb2096d ago

Yep. His prediction instantly makes Holiday 2013/2014 more probable.

Tonester9252096d ago

Man Halo 6 would be out by then lol

FragMnTagM2096d ago

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.

Tonester9252096d ago

Shut up it was a joke! People are so emotionally attached to a machine it's crazy

BlackSharinganX2095d ago

your right there will be probable like 20 halos before halo 6

FragMnTagM2095d ago

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.

BatRastered2095d ago

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).
