2)kinect games.
3)dash board upgrades.
4)halo, gears, forza + one new Ip in rotation.
5)cheaper to make xbla exclusives.
6)payed dlc that is free on pc.

I usually play more PC games than Xbox. But I admit I want one of these.
amandadyar  +   841d ago
Yeah, I was about to buy a new bundled edition console for one of the video games I want. But figure may need to hold out and wait to see when this is released before I have too many consoles in my house. :-)

What's there to like about Sony anyhow?
ChunkyLover53  +   840d ago
The first AAAA title, even better online services, great games and a fun community that is easy to use.

Really getting excited for a new Xbox console.

I don't get it. SFB's disagreeing for absolutely no reason what so ever. I swear u guys need lives. He didn't say anything bad or threatening. You guys r like the Zombie Apocalypse there's no escaping you guys.

I don't know what SFB's are but that is one awesome analogy! Bubblesss!

Funny because my PS3 has died 4 times and had to be repaired. Atleast MS paid to fix my 360 the 1 time it broke.

just saying....
Lvl_up_gamer  +   840d ago
Holds exclusive console titles such as COD, Diablo, Guitar Hero, WoW, starcraft etc....

That is of course if MS do buy Activision...


Will be very interesting to see what next gen will bring us.

More non-gaming related ads. Ad based games. 1year warranty (useless).

Only thing that has me concerned is the controller.

I'd rather use the 360 controller for the next 7 years again, then play on a crappy 720 controller.

I'm not sure how they could make it any better. It's the best console controller I've ever used.
Ben_Grimm  +   840d ago
I'm actually hoping they will make it a cross between their 360 and the Ouya controller (the touch portion). That would be pretty sweet.

Also, and this is a big PLEASE, do something with that D-Pad! The swivel was not the asnwer cause that shit easily breaks after a good three days of SF4, KoF and MvC3 play.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   840d ago
You know what the 720's controller looks like?
DivineAssault  +   840d ago
xbox has no future.. Gaikai will be implemented into most android enabled devices, tvs, & PS4 as well.. The unparalleled amount of exclusives will have ppl jumping ship eventually.. PS4 is going to most likely ditch the cell processor & go with similar guts to the 720 so the games will be the same graphically but the services & support sony has will put it in another league.. The east doesnt care for xbox at all either so it will fall after sony takes the west back.. lol

Possibly casuals will want the new kinect but i dont see xbox doing much that will be in anyway better to own than PS4.. Halo n Gears isnt worth losing all the exclusives.. GOW alone is worth more to me than all xbox games.. Plus i can always get those on PC lol

so this is either good trolling or an absolutely delusional comment, i hope Sony is paying you to be this obnoxious on their behalf.
DivineAssault  +   840d ago
Sony is paying me.. By providing me with the best in gaming entertainment.. Troll you say? i never even open xbox articles but this one had an attractive headline. "what does the future hold for xbox720?" U think my comment is delusional huh? well u will see in the near future.. Just remember my comment when u start to see the walls caving in on microsofts next console.. Ill be sure to comment again when that starts hitting the web news.. I have a 360 too so its not like im showing blind love for sony..

Oh and any PS4 adopter that own a vita will get an even better experience..Wiping the floor with smartglass.. Guess what else? The new wikipad is coming soon.. Know what it will have? Gaikai support lol

NO ON Sony is not paying him one cent, but he/she is just upset because GOW is all they can return too, a single player game, a very good game, but still after completion it who what left to do. onlike Gears HALO COD. Oh maybe i should'nt mention COD. Then what about GTA out selling the PS3 and this was a PS exclusive. Look no one is aware of what the next Gen has to fully offer, so let just sit back and see. Remember that GT was meant to be a launch title for PS3 that never arrived on time, well almost 3yrs later ad in that space of time time M$ produced FORZA three times, GOW was also a launch title for PS3 which was late. The public are not patient and are easly tempted, you should ask yourself how come M$ holds 70% plus of the gaming market when Sony once had about 90%, what went wrong.
blue_flowers  +   840d ago
your answer to my previous comment tells me yes, your delusional lol...

I believe Sony and Microsoft will be around for awhile.
Raiden  +   840d ago
Yep until one things its not making the money.
Roper316  +   840d ago
expect more / higher fees for what should be fee, customers paying to look at advertising on the dashboard, so basically just more of the same.

last 2 gens I was a PS/Xbox gamer, next gen I will be a PS/PC gamer and probably won't get the new Xbox until much later in the generation. I will basically be missing out on Halo, forza & Fable all of which I was not that big on. Gears I believe will be a Xbox/PC game next gen and all the other 3rd party games will be available on either the PS or PC. I also could not careless about timed DLC for COD or any other game for that matter.

There are a few game related companies I don't feel are worthy of the money I bust my ass to earn and they are Activision, Capcom & MS with SE on the fence and VS XIII or whatever they decided to call it now.
SpelunkyJunkie  +   840d ago
Can't wait to get my hands on one of these. Hopefully, they will be reasonably priced out of the gate with some good launch games to choose. It seems Microsoft will once again win the console wars for the next generation.
LaurenKB123  +   840d ago
If Microsoft wants to continue to be a player in the games industry they have to come out of the gate with the "Xbox 720" and be successful, no flops...
