Microsoft Will Announce The Xbox 720 Soon, Here’s A Theory About When

GamerFitNation's Gregory Laporte writes about the next Xbox console. "Recent rumors have come to light that Microsoft is set to announce their press event for their future console sometime in April. While this is mostly rumor, there is some evidence to support the claim; however there is nothing concrete. I believe the reveal will be a little bit sooner than that. Read my theory below and see whether or not you agree with my assertion." (PS4, Xbox One)

@luckystrike

lmao go ahead and find me in one other MS or xbox only news thread I can bet you you wont find me in any and yet i "scan for any MS news" I will just put your comment down to deprivation of air when you where being born, I thought since all we have been getting on this site lately are xbox fantards trolling and negative news because of the strange fear xbox fans have of sony (which is understandable because the new xbox will not be even close to the ps4) I would come in here and do the same eye for an eye so to speak.

Take that as childish or what ever but i dont see you complaining about the xbox retards. And i call them retards because thats what a fan of xbox is.

@Scott182

I cant say competition is good because ever since MS hit the gaming scene we have had nothing but retard console wars and fantards fighting. If MS wasnt around i can bet you this would not of happened because this ego thing about consoles was made in America before a console was made there no one cared whos console was best they just played games.

If that was true, Sony would only have 4GB of GDDR5 RAM in the PS4. Competition is good, and apparently Sony cares about the next Xbox. Everyone should.
scott182  +   738d ago
Good point, without knowing the competition would have more ram sony may never have upped theirs. Competition is good.

Well this is awkward. Why does N4G have a channel for the 'Xbox 720'?

Anyway, I'm looking forward to it, but I won't hold my breath. The Xbox 360 announcement launch was big for me and I made the transition from Sony and the PS2 over to Microsoft and the Xbox 360. Everything about it was almost perfect at the time (I wasn't familiar with hardware failure rate as I wasn't into gaming news and forums back then, but had I known I would of ditched them a long time ago).

After 2009 and the NXE dashboard, it has become adamant that paying a premium for an online service does not save you from seeing advertisements on your dashboard. While this can be argued and I welcome it, it doesn't make sense when you pay a premium on many websites and you avoid advertising.

They pushed Kinect. They pushed it a LOT!!! They have forgotten about the core gamer and what made the Xbox 360 what it is today and they decided to turn their attention to the casual market, which isn't a bad thing, but when you see casual games overtake core games, you start to wonder where things are going.

If they can start the 'Xbox 720' like they did the Xbox 360 (minus hardware failure) then it is going to reclaim some of those who made the switch to Sony. If they don't, well they are only going to annoy more gamers and lose more fans.

At this very moment, I am leaning more towards the PS4. My PSN Plus subscription just ran out and I am considering renewing that and not my Xbox LIVE subscription.
BigStef71  +   738d ago
Same for me too man. After the exclusives stopped I switched to ps3 for good which I'm glad I did. For next gen I'm definitely getting a ps4 but if Microsoft gets its act together and actually provide new IP exclusives then I will greatly consider getting getting the next Xbox. Pus they need to let RARE make some new installments in their classic franchises'

MasterCornholio  +   738d ago
Plenty of people care about the next XBOX more than the Wii U. But what many people dont have is high hopes that Microsoft will focus on the core.

Maybe Microsoft will surprise them?

I think they have to so they can switch momentum to them. I think both will be amazing machines, I know my buddy will get the 720 and i'll get the PS4. Best of both worlds.
lovegames718  +   738d ago
Bring it. The more options the bettet.
fredolopez  +   738d ago
i think they will unveil the xbox 720 and live-stream it on xbl during E3. regardless of when they choose to so, i can't wait!
clintagious650  +   738d ago
I think everyone who knows me knows i prefer my ps3 over my 360 but im definitely anxious to see what ms has in store for their nextbox. I hope they can show more core games because im just not interested in kinect so sorry if im not a kinect fan but im just being honest wit yall. Hopefully ms can change my mind by showing off some new ip's in the making for the nextbox & not be just kinect 2.0 launch titles or i will be disappointed.
PS4isKing_82  +   738d ago
It would be so funny if at e3, they start playing a video revealing the new Xbox but before it does................. We have to watch a 15min ad for papa johns pizza LMAO

Sorry I had to with all this talk about Xbox and ads lol

jonboi24  +   738d ago
Just hope they focus on games and finally show that if kinnect is boxed in day one that it can be an essential peripheral to the core games. If xbox losses focus on the core demographic that has supported them, then they are going to have a bad time this gen. If the leaks are right it's hard to see how xbox can stack against the PS4 technically and gaikai powered psn. This will be one hell of a fight if this gen is the last console generation.
MichaelLito79  +   738d ago
I think Microsoft is going to have some amazing games to show off. Right now this weeks attention is on Sony. In a few weeks the attention will be on Microsoft. Gaming is going to be at an all time high this year. Kudos to all 3 for keeping the gaming industry relevant and important.
mistertwoturbo  +   738d ago
I'm curious as to what they will offer.

But I'm shocked as how there are some people here who think they will magically go from DDR3 to GDDR5 like on the PS4.
urwifeminder  +   738d ago
Shall be nice to see its really the only console for me allthough i like what nintendo are doing the other brand does not rate with me.
