Everything You Know About the 8th Generation is a Lie

There is evidence such as Microsoft’s leaked future plans to suggest that Microsoft will go the Sony route and continue to manufacture the 360 after its successor is released as an entertainment box. In order for this to be accomplished, the 360 must shed its fat, such as its hard drive, and its disc drive. If these two things are accomplished, then there is no reason for Microsoft to not have backwards compatibility. (PS4, Xbox One)

I dont because the 8th gen console is here in the form of the Wii U so there is some truth available just not all of it.
juandren  +   839d ago
What the Wii U has been most successful at is fluctuating internet traffic. If Wii U is any testament to the eighth gen, I'd rather stick with my PS3

You should probably use the word "probably" a little more.
juandren  +   839d ago
I wish I knew how this silly article got approved. What got me is the fact that he put rumors in quotation marks. It's not "rumors", it's just rumors. Learn how to write idiot. Sounds like a boy wrote it. Not to mention the fact that he just assumes he knows better. You don't know shit, son. None of us do

My brain is capable of displaying logic, and I can use that to display how these current rumors have a low probability of truthfulness.
juandren  +   837d ago
Yeah, stating the obvious must really require a lot of brainpower
evanextreme  +   838d ago
I don't know if you guys have seen this yet, but a little update to my article. http://arstechnica.com/gami...

at this point it's all just guesses until Sony or M$ announce anything solid and official everything is a lie. Even cake is a lie!!!
Braid  +   840d ago
Cake? How about the Cake?

The story was submitted 20 minutes ago and there's still no cake joke made here? You've disappointed me there, interwebs.

everything you know about the earth, life as it exists is a lie.

So the rumored Blu-Ray drive in the new Xbox is a new? Next gen games will all be on at least 4 DVDs for the Xbox 720. When will MS learn?
Mikefizzled  +   840d ago
Thats missing the point. The point is that all the rumored information in circulation is being treated as concrete facts. The only thing for certain is that both companies intend to stay around for next gen.
knifefight  +   840d ago
This sentence is false.
LNDCalling  +   839d ago
Lier...!!! (the circularity of that hurts my brain)
evanextreme  +   838d ago
Ummm... True. I'll go true. Ehh... That was easy. I'll be honest, I might have heard that one before though. Sort of cheating.
Stoppokingme  +   840d ago
I've heard rumors that nextbox will crap gold bullion and breathe fire.

And you can believe what I say because I post on the internet, and we all know that's a reliable source.

Suddenly everybody is an expert or an insider when it comes to next gen. Let the specs do the talking, when they come.

I know that I don't know anything concrete about them. Is that a lie too?
juandren  +   839d ago
This author should just have sat in front of his open document and pressed three buttons: Ctrl + A and Delete. That was uninformative and more like an opinion of somebody who just wants to feel his is important
LNDCalling  +   839d ago
lol how does this person 'know' that what I know about the 8th generation is a Lie?

You can't call rumor a lie.. until the consoles are released everything is just conjecture and I think I and most people 'know' this!
broken_back-man  +   839d ago
I know something! !! the wiiu isnt a next gen counsle and is going to be a gen behind the ps4/nextbox just like the wii!!!! haha haha
waltyftm  +   839d ago
You say that like your the only one who knows.
deSSy2724  +   839d ago
Well, Wii U is the 8th gen console or the next gen console.... console generations has nothing to do with power, specs (whatever).

But, Wii U will 90% lost 3rd party support just like Wii.... that could be correct easily if next Sony and MS consoles will use high end components.
JimmyDanger  +   839d ago
Yeah. I agree.

A simpler analogy - Let's say Ford released a car this year in the style of the classic T-model. It wouldn't matter if the engine inside was a fuel injected modern engine, or an old diesel engine - it'd still be a 2013 t model Ford.

Or simpler - You may have a smaller brain, be less strong, and less agile than your Daddy - but you're still Next Generation.

This is how console generations have always worked.
deSSy2724  +   838d ago
Wii U can have 3rd part ports from 720/PS4 because we can already see this with PC vs Xbox360/PS3 but the real problem for Wii U is, if they decide to port those 8th gen or next gen 720/PS4 games (whatever) over to Wii U than they should do the same for PS3 and Xbox360 because Wii U is comparable to current gen consoles, slightly stronger (RAM, GPU..) but the CPU is weak aka its basically a bottlneck in some ways....

IMO and in short words, if Wii U is going to be a success in terms of next generation 3rd party ports, than the same can be said for PS3 and Xbox360. Basically, that means.... even PS3 and 360 consoles can beat Wii U aka be comparable (7th gen Sony/MS and 8the gen Wii U)....

I already know this. I'm 100% certain ps4 WONT be announced feb 20.
