zeal0us1244d ago

More will keep pouring in until the next xbox is unveiled.

WarThunder1244d ago

I think next xbox, will focus on Kinect 2.0 and Xbox smartglass

gaffyh1244d ago

This story is complete bullshit, and it is easy to tell it is information made up by amateurs.

"It will not include Blu-Ray"

It DEFINITELY will include Blu-Ray.

zebramocha1244d ago

@gaff they could mean it has the capacity but doesn't play blu-rays.

MurDocINC1244d ago

I think specs will be very similar to ps4, they all partnered with AMD after all. Any difference will be due to cost of standard peripherals(controller/camera/ headset) included.

dafegamer1244d ago

@gaffyh its possible that they wont include blu-ray, cause it would mean that they would pay sony some money for each blu ray sold. Sony is the co-founder of the blu ray after all, along with philips and others. They might include their own optical disc, just like nintendo

gaffyh1244d ago

@dafegamer - they can go the route of using unlicensed bluray e.g. WiiU, but it will still be bluray. However, the rumours suggest that they will use 50GB bluray, which is definitely licensed because unlicensed is 25GB

BitbyDeath1244d ago

@dafegamer, Sony are also a cofounder for DVD and MS have that in the 360.

Saigon1244d ago

I see what dafegamer is trying to say regardless. This info that is coming out for the Next Xbox, actually in a sense sucks. This means the rumors of always online are somewhat true. But at the same time, I don't know if I can trust this site, because they just posted;

Contradiction!!!

gatormatt801244d ago (Edited 1244d ago )

Isn't one of Microsoft's main goal/objective is to be the main entertainment media device for the living room? If that's true then wouldn't including official blu-ray licence be mandatory to achieve said goal...

BrianC62341244d ago

" I think next xbox, will focus on Kinect 2.0 and Xbox smartglass"

If that's true it sounds like a boring gaming console. Does anyone really want to play their games that way? I sure don't.

MelonSaurus1244d ago

And then more rumors after that. I mean just look at the PS4 rumors still floating about.

HappyGaming1244d ago

@zeal0us I said the same thing about the PS4 because Sony was pushing NFS in so many of its devices from the new Xperia phones to its TVs Sony headphones and even speakers. I assumed we would be able to touch an Sony phone to a PS4 controller and our phones screen would pop up on the PS4 live.

Lets hope they left that out for E3 because they only wanted to focus on games at their meeting. However I think it would be a sweet feature that would encourage people to purchase multiple Sony products.

falcon791243d ago

Microsoft are concentrating on Kinect2.

http://www.maxconsole.com/m...

Scroll down there's a paragraph for all 3 nextgen consoles,and a paragraph about 3rd partys.

Everyone stop and take an honest look at how misinformed this article is. The information "leaked" states that the 720 will have an 8000mhz GPU. That sort of tech doesn't exist, unless the 720 is made by aliens. I guess they were just recycling the 800mhz GPU leaked specs, but still.

I think fanboys of either manufacturer camp can safely dismiss this article. Most likely, the next-gen boxes will be relatively on par with a slight edge to the PS4 for the GPU and RAM choice.

These sorts of articles do not really help anyone.

classic2001244d ago (Edited 1244d ago )

lol people saw it but A lot of people don't even know what 8000mhz means.

Could be a mistake for 800.

flyingmunky1244d ago

Naw they probably expect each core to run at 1 Ghz and multiplied it by the number of cores to get 8000 mhz /s.

Kinda like the other article that claimed you could add the cache speed to the regular gddr3 speed to get gddr5 level performance.

I'm so tired of speculation, rumors, fanboy logic, and misinformation. I really hope MS reveals the console info tomorrow so this crap can have an end.

AngelicIceDiamond1244d ago

The worst part is fanboys will use this super inaccurate crappy rumor source to back up their nonsensical fanboy propaganda.

BrianC62341244d ago

If it did say 8000 it's been fixed. It says 800 now.

CryofSilence1244d ago (Edited 1244d ago )

I'm certain it's a typo. 800 MHz is reasonable for just about any GPU these days.

Edit:
Oh, they fixed it.

@flyingmunky

Just a little FYI for kicks and giggles: Hertz is already a per second (s^-1) measurement, which in this case is clocks/cycles per second, so there is no need for the extra /s in your first sentence. Unless, of course, that was a /s for end sarcasm. ;)

N0S3LFESTEEM1244d ago

That 8ghz clock on the GPU is correct... the CPU will also be clocked at 16GHz and the heat sink will be designed as a box on top of the console so that heat can be recycled for making hot pockets.

skrug1243d ago

@flyingmunky

gddr3 =/= ddr3

BlindGuardian1244d ago

PS4 rumours turned out to be almost identical to reality, and these specs are very similar to the ones mentioned on EG and VGleaks weeks ago

I have both the PS3 and 360 since 2006 but it seems that this time I won't miss much getting only the PS4, especially if MS keep pushing for all the social crap and Kinect and Sony keeps the focus on core gaming

T21244d ago

I agree. I own all three consoles right now, but I'm hoping ps4 can get me back to that golden egg... one system! Don't play gears, halo is ok but resistance is getting better as is killzone, forza nope too many viable replacements, fable going downhill steady .... It would be a great thing to go back to one. I only had one during the ps1, ps2 era.

Jockamo1243d ago

wat u didn't watch the sony meeting? sony was all about the "social crap."

joab7771244d ago

Yep. Though the ones about the ps4 were spot on except the amount of ram and even the developers didnt know about that...because it was a last second addition. It will probably be close. If these specs are right, expect a lower price point than ps4, maybe in the wiiU camp.

DonFreezer1244d ago

Last second addition?If so why can't Microsoft make some too like changing the type of ram?

Metfanant1244d ago

@DonFreezer

The difference between the "last second addition" in the PS4 and the NextBox is that Sony didn't change the TYPE of RAM, but the amount of it...

Blasphemy1244d ago

doesn't seem like much was revealed there.

GraveLord1244d ago (Edited 1244d ago )

from a no-name website.

EDIT: LOL! Just realized this is PS-Analog LMFAO. Yeah, not even worth a click.

JaredH1244d ago (Edited 1244d ago )

I've never heard of this website and they have a super small following from what I can tell so I do not trust anything they say a "source" told them.

TAURUS-5551244d ago

haha kinect 2.0..are you serious MS...are you serious ?????

cmon not even a 5 years old cares about it.

jerethdagryphon1244d ago

fake very very fake

having seen the original leaked internal docs it doesnt add up

bluray is touted heavily in that doc

and kinect is mentioned strongly so no acturate , just rumor

NeXXXuS1244d ago

Just like how it's rumored that the kinect isn't optional or somethng like that.
i don't even know anymore.
i hate these rumor articles. there's no point in clicking them either.

Muffins12231244d ago

IF this is true,then xbox will suck

Dark_Eternal1243d ago

@gaffyh
Maybe it'll support HD DVD! ;P

jden281243d ago

@ BitbyDeath ACTUALLY Sony was NOT an originator of DVD they were brought on later by the originators who are Philips and Toshiba so that they wouldn't release a competing format called DVD-1...Not only that but the roads are littered with failed Sony formats...Mini Disc, Beta Max, Micro dv, Super CD, ...etc...And I agree this article is just rumors but here one that I heard that makes sense...Microsoft was originally supposed to show of the X720 this month just before GDC but Sony pulled a bold and calculated move after they learned that there machine's original specs had it coming in with more processing power but with only half the ram...originally it was supposed to be 4gb that had Microsoft feeling good until they saw that Sony doubled the Ram used ddr5 not 3 and used the newer version of the AMD gpu this has rattled MS so they are currently revising the specs and that's why it won't be shown until April that gives them time to add some power...as originally it was rumored by people that had seen it that the x720 was a beast it was like having 2 cpu's and 16 cores...

'The new ’720′ will have 3x the processing speed of the current 360'

Don't take any notice of these folks. There's no way in HELL that the 720 will only be 3x the processing speed of the 360. These specs are pulled out of nowhere and fly in the face of rumoured specs from elsewhere. We know that the Ps4 will be 8 - 10x the processing power of the PS3 and the 720 will probably be in that ball park too.

Trunkz Jr1244d ago

I don't care if it's 2x or 50x, It's still just going to be a rumour :)

greenpowerz1244d ago (Edited 1244d ago )

You mean only belive the rumors with the lowest specs you can find to hype PS4 as the victor id onl for a few weeks before the 720 is announced.

LOL at all the sudden it's just rumors comments yet in the same sentence some of you know what MSFT can or can not do and and know what MSFT has and does not have. LOL

I agree though there are things that don't sound right. Not the speed but what is there and not there in the info. Sound like a mixture of rumors and wishful thinking. The DDR3 RAM is the most fake sh*T I've seen. All the leaked doc specs showed MSFT going with DDR4 RAM

GribbleGrunger1244d ago

Ok, I'm confused. Should I say that the 360 IS only going to be 3x better?

KwietStorm1244d ago (Edited 1244d ago )

You are so far up their ass that you didn't even comprehend Gribble was saying the real Xbox will be much more powerful than these rumored, fairly weaker specs. Give up the cheerleader act. Aren't you over it by now? MSFT MSFT MSFT

Outside_ofthe_Box1244d ago (Edited 1244d ago )

lol You jumped the gun big time. You probably saw Gribble's name and automatically ASSUMED he was saying something negative about your GOD. You pretty much confirmed your insecurity. Ever since there were speculation that the PS4 might be more powerful than the 720 you've been on full troll mode for anything PS4 and full damage control for anything next Xbox.

I don't get why you feel the need to this though. The difference in power between the PS4 and 720 will more less be like it is this gen. You seriously come off as being scared that the PS4 might be significantly better than the next Xbox and you come off as lacking faith that Microsoft will be able to deliver the goods.

You need to relax. These are exciting times no need to be all tense. Be the real gamer and tech guy you said you are!

BlueTemplar1244d ago

@greentroll The ddr3 rumours come from the devkits that have been widely circulated to developers. The ddr4 rumour I suspect comes from your imagination (literally the first Ive heard of it)

DoesUs1244d ago (Edited 1244d ago )

@Green. DDR4?! Really?! Now go and check on the status and availability of DDR4 modules. Best of luck with that. There have been ZERO rumours about that, and you know fine well. The horse is already dead. The bullsh!t from your mouth beggars belief. Once again, the sooner you accept the better. LMAO, you've even posted VGLeaks info numerous times! Your desperation level has reached critical mass.

KillrateOmega1244d ago

DDR4, huh? Sure...

Fanboys never cease to amaze me.

DigitalRaptor1244d ago (Edited 1244d ago )

I'm just gonna say one thing, cause the guys above have said it all..

Hilarious!!

Gildarts1244d ago (Edited 1244d ago )

There actually was a Microsoft document that was leaked that said they were going with DdR4, so many misinformed people.. it was a 50 page PDF file that was leaked , i don't think you can find it anywhere anymore, since Microsoft took legal Action to take them all down. It also told of Augmented Reality Glasses Called Project fortaleza, go look for it its real, and its pretty much legit since Microsoft took legal Action, go look it up the documents Are real. I think I even got the PDF file somewhere on my pc if you want to see it send me a message. Now with all that said the document is from 2010 so the specs might have been changed by now. I myself do believe that they are going With DD3 now, since all rumors are pointing to that including SuperDAE .
Also I'm a Microsoft Fan I use all their products in their Ecosystem so I'm going to buy the 720 even if it is slightly less powerful then the PS4. The gap in specs this Gen seem to be closer to each other then PS3 vs 360

kenshiro1001244d ago

You have a very serious problem...

MysticStrummer1244d ago NotAReplyShow
jerethdagryphon1244d ago

@ guildarts i have the file and theres 1 mention of ddr 4 fortzella yes however its only 4 gig

additionally its listing arm/x86 at 2ghz as variable cores is scalable

dafegamer1244d ago

yeah seems kinda week. Eurogamer said that the ps4 is only "slightly" better, not by much.It will be similar to the x360/ps3 matter

hennessey861244d ago

Likely that I will be a PS4 only gamer next gen after being primarily a 360 gamer this gen.

The_Infected1244d ago (Edited 1244d ago )

^^
You don't have to be so anti Xbox man. I'm a PS3 gamer and soon to be PS4 gamer but I'm also exited about what MS has to offer. I can't wait to see the new Xbox just as I was to see the PS4. After both reveals I will then make my decision on which one I like better.

OlgerO1244d ago

@Kratos Kills I agree, I have always been a playstation gamer, but I will reserve my judgment until both systems are unveiled. Who knows maybe xbox 720 has an innovation that is so groundbreaking that it blows the PS4 out the water.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1244d ago (Edited 1244d ago )

As long as MS charge for multi player and they use their over priced HDD scams It's ps4, wiiU(maybe later) & pc for me. Focus on kinect makes it no better. Sony mentioned the new ps eye but knows gamers don't want it to be the main focus.

KuroiTori1244d ago

Actually, most would agree that a smart man waits for all information to be out to make a decision.

DoesUs1244d ago

VGLeaks is accurate. No other info should be considered, including this.

torchic1244d ago

I think the perfect term which describes VGLeaks' specs is "precise" rather than accuarte.

they're not dead on with the confirmed specs, but hit close to the target with regularity.

jmac531244d ago

That true if you consider year old info to be accurate.
