Leaked Memo Shows First Xbox 720 Image/Lists Features

Sick of half-baked Xbox 720 articles? Everyone at VGI is. So to combat this, we thought we'd show the rest of journalism just how silly it is. (Next-Gen)

Wonder if people will actually read past the headline to see that this is funny.

I did come to the article thing "O here we go again" but I was pleasantly surprised
guitarded77  +   1084d ago
Not me... if it's an obvious hit grabbing title, I check out the comments section here on n4g before giving a hit to a site. Funny or not, it's the same technique for both.

"With the success of HD DVD"
"No Overheating. Should you become overheated, there's even a fan to cool you down"
"Yellow Ring - tested on 500 people, 97% says it is more soothing than the red ring"

LOL this was golden, just pure gold. Lord knows most 360 gamers get sweaty sitting there eating cheetos and drinking mountain dew, breathing heavily while they sit there for hours on end lmao

''No less than twenty-six USB ports...''

It seems I dont have to "read full story" :)
VGI  +   1084d ago
I did consider having a more fitting title (and probably should have) but ended up going with the current one seeing as it kind helps prove the stupidity of attention grabbing headlines.

Or at least that's what I hope it does ...
ZoyosJD  +   1084d ago
I'm glad that you took the time to ensure that the description gave it away as fake, but I could have really went on without it.

While the article was slightly funny, it's just not worth it since you were trying to prove a point using certain tactics, and FURTHER PROVING THAT THEY WORK(even after practically stating everything is fake in the description).

If you really wanted to be honorable and show you really are tired of the hit grabbing, you should have posted a blog here on ng4.

But sir, you have become a hypocrite with this very piece, not because of intent, but execution.

Nice work, way to channel your inner Douglas Adams.
dubal-e  +   1083d ago
Nah it was funny man. Its no worse then the articles that people actually consider news on here sometimes. I laughted and its fun to laugh a little every now and then.
deep_fried_bum_cake  +   1083d ago
I think that is really stupid reasoning as it just seems like you're looking for hits. But even so, it was funny, so you deserve the hits.
XB1_PS4  +   1083d ago
This sure did catch a lot of hits!!
Ares84HU  +   1084d ago
What do you mean??? This must be real man!!! I mean, you can plug it into your body !!!! :D
Emilio_Estevez  +   1084d ago
But is your body ready?
Getowned  +   1083d ago
"I mean, you can plug it into your body"

I don't like where this is going :S
M-M  +   1083d ago
@Emilio_Estevez, Yes.

I enjoyed the poke "following the success of hd-dvd" :)
Abdou23  +   1084d ago
Of all the leakages this is the worst.
thorstein  +   1083d ago
And it isn't even April 1st!
NonApplicable  +   1083d ago
I don't care how satirical the article is. The whole premise is based off of false advertising. This hypocritical website points out flaws in journalism, yet transparently employs the same techniques.
Blaze929  +   1083d ago
nothing, about this article was funny to me. Just sounded like someone was sour and did the exact thing he complained other websites of doing: wasted my time.

Everyone who says it's funny, doesn't really say how and just sounds like they are friends or work with the website and posted a comment they dont believe.

lol very funny article
Sev  +   1084d ago
Really, I didn't think it was funny at all. Funny idea, maybe, but poorly executed.
ALLWRONG  +   1083d ago
it was too obvious
dennett316  +   1083d ago
Not obvious enough it seems...have you seen some of the comments on the story when you click on it?
Hayabusa 117  +   1083d ago
@dennett3316: Better to assume some really witty people are being ultra-sarcastic and maintain faith in the human race.
tehpees3  +   1084d ago
LOL! Good laugh from that. And yes I'm sure its 1000% real ;)

Gotta love N4G...it's becoming more like 4Chan now.
tayz  +   1083d ago
agreed. this article should be reported as spam.
BudMcMuffin2go  +   1084d ago
LOL that's funny :-)
waltyftm  +   1084d ago
Still not enough USB ports :(
Dlacy13g  +   1084d ago
LOL... well played. I was reading along and actually thinking ok here we go... go to the picture and was like...OK wait... but the 50 gazillion usb hubs didn't deter me to read further thinking well maybe that faceplate will change. Then....I got to you are the power supply.

Laughed out loud and thought... thanks for the chuckle. This day needs some laughs.
TemplarDante  +   1084d ago
Wow, we are the power supply? The memo didnt say if we would be prone to overheating lol.
Funny read lol had me going there lol.
sandman224  +   1084d ago
That was so retarded. My I.Q. Just dropped a little. Thanks more making me dumb with your article VGI.
Kran  +   1084d ago
Sorry this is NOT 720.

Know why?!?!?!


Thumbsticks are too big. Thats why :)
drpepperdude  +   1084d ago
Why do people call it the 720 when it is the third xbox?
Reverent  +   1083d ago
For the same reason they called it the Xbox 360 when it was the second xbox. I would guess.
Redgehammer  +   1084d ago
Maybe the first Xbox is actually the Xbox 180. :)

Something tells me the photo is doctored, but I can't quite put my finger on it.

Y'know? I thought the same thing when I was making it.

I wonder if it is fake ...

Bye !!!
Ben_Grimm  +   1084d ago
Oh wow, you can plug the cords directly into your body to power the 720!
MS always puts the Earth first, thank you MS!
Conzul  +   1083d ago
Not really. You know how much we're gonna have to start eating to power this thing? Gaia will be rolling over in her.....uh....
Zangalou  +   1084d ago
oh i understand now, to be on the first page of n4g, you have to post the stupidier news.
chukamachine  +   1084d ago
Considering it's wasn't the best selling console from 2005-2012.

It's the most broken, machine ever made. between 2005-2012.
dennett316  +   1083d ago
Inaccuracy is kind of the point of the joke dude. Besides...the Wii doesn't count.

Ban the people who approved this stry and ban the person who submitted it.

dennett316  +   1083d ago
I'd rather they banned humourless little internet tough guys myself, but then I have some perspective.
nevin1  +   1083d ago
lol@ 26 USB ports.
Parasyte  +   1083d ago
Wow. Some people on this site need to gain a sense of humor...or stop acting like internet tough guys. I immediately got the gist of the article after reading the description.

I was curious as to where the actual article would go with it, then I got to the picture. I lol'd...hard!
DivineAssault  +   1083d ago
I think i have one of these in my trunk.
Dunpeal  +   1083d ago
sorry, i don't need an article to tell me how silly a half-baked future gen article is :/
carlocgc  +   1083d ago
anyone excited about a new xbox needs a firm slap.
Microsoft = you getting the cash SQUEEEEZZZED out of you for inferior products and services which should be free like internet gaming and chatting.
Xbox fanboys have severe stockholm syndrome.
Ben_Grimm  +   1083d ago
Thank you for sharing that small bit of useless info. Now isn't there a bridge you should be guarding?
carlocgc  +   1083d ago
Also how can anyone expect a new console within even the next 2 years? top of the range PCs cannot even do next-gen stuff
dennett316  +   1083d ago
What on Earth are you talking about? Top of the range PC's are so far beyond what the next consoles will be doing in terms of spec it's not even funny.
Parasyte  +   1083d ago
Don't feed the trolls.
