It sounds like Microsoft are aiming for a June launch for their next gen console, according to a business magazine. (Industry, Microsoft, Xbox One)

Are we talking about launching the actual console in June or just revealing it?
CustardTrout  +   1064d ago
" launch of the new Xbox gaming console is expected in June, "
The_Infected  +   1064d ago
That's pretty awesome! Well if that's true they need to hurry up and reveal the console and build up marketing fast.
darthv72  +   1064d ago
From reading:

It sounds very much like bittorrent. So maybe their idea for the nextbox will be about quicker downloads and possibly stream loading of games or other content from not only the servers but other users.

InMyOpinion  +   1064d ago
It's Google translated. Most probably it's the announcement, and not retail launch.
gaffyh  +   1064d ago
"Launch" in this case, means announcement. It is the same way with the PS4, many journalists called it the "launch" i.e. BBC, but Kaz replied saying it wasn't really a launch.
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   1064d ago
They are not launching it at June lol. This just means just that they are going to reveal it at E3. I was really hoping for the April reveal to be true though.
kneon  +   1064d ago

So they want to use up your bandwidth rather then pay for better servers?
Raf1k1  +   1064d ago
If it's true they're rushing to get it out before the PS4 which could prove to be bad.

I don't want them rushing out the Xbox only to end up with a poorly built machine. When people buy a console they don't want to be having to replace it soon after.
shoddy  +   1064d ago
Hopefully they don't rush too much to make sure the have reasonable failure rate.
guitarded77  +   1064d ago
I HIGHLY doubt a June launch. If (and like I said I highly doubt it) a June launch were to happen, it'd have to be after E3. I think a fall launch is more realistic. We'd have so many leaks from parts manufactures right now if they were gearing up for a June launch, and 3rd party devs would want to be showing their games already if it were a June launch.

I think there might be a translation error from revealing/unveiling to launching.

No way. They are not going to launch in June. That is only a couple months away and they haven't even announced it.

Move along Kneon, this isn't a Sony article. But if it was, I wonder if you'd be so negative about an added option that probably wouldn't be forced upon the end user.
BitbyDeath  +   1063d ago
I wonder if this is one of the outcomes from the emergency meeting they held a few weeks back after seeing the PS4 announcement.

Pando might be used to let you play games while downloading them like what PS4 had already announced.
cooksauce  +   1063d ago

3-4-5  +   1063d ago
I think that means launch of all the info and the reveal.

Since E3 is during or around the same time we can guess that it is referring to that or at least somewhat E3 along with other Microsoft only Presentations.
andibandit  +   1063d ago
It makes a small amount of sense because they could be standing on the scene at E3 and say, "You can get it on monday".

I feel confident this is the full reveal in June. We would have heard something by now if it was a June actual hardware launch.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   1064d ago
I was hoping for a April reveal if the rumors are anything to go by.

MS seems like they're buying allot lately. How much "stuff" will the 720 have in it?


@DLace Oh ok so the April reveal is still very possible. I agree the 720 won't get released in June. I think people keep getting "launch" and "reveal" mixed up.

Thanks for the clear up.

@AngelicIceDiamond I am sure we will get a partial reveal in April similar to what Sony did. It wont be everything but it will give you a good idea. The full reveal I am sure will come in June at E3 with launch window / date and possibly price.

I highly doubt they would launch hardware in June. I mean 1) We have not heard a peep of leeks from any manufacturing which would already have had to be happening for a June launch. 2) They will want more than just 2 months (April & May) to promote the console. They are marketing beasts so this just doesn't make sense.

Exactly. No way this thing is releasing in June. terrible time to launch a console even if it were the truth.

It's a great time to release a console.

Diehards buy it at release. Then there is plenty of time to repletion inventory by the holiday shopping season.
Veneno  +   1063d ago
If Microsoft announced that Live would be free for the first year of Launch, or even the first 6 months, that would be a good motivation to buy.

jdktech2010  +   1064d ago
You mean the one time of year when not one good game comes out and they would have the attention of everyone until September when good ones start coming out....that is pretty terrible.

I doubt it will happen but if they launched in June with one or two good exclusives and some third party games early (this is why it won't happen) it would be a great time as they would crash the summer drought with a big shiny new green pool to go swim in.

Again, seriously doubt it will happen but it could be cool

The fact that Microsoft had NOTHING to say to atleast lower Sony's momentum after its PS4 anouncement told a story, but what writes an even worse tale is the info that does leak consearning the next Xbox.

Looks like Microsoft is not trying to out do Sony by being Sony, so what else then is left?

Really only a fight with Apple over the cable box?
darthv72  +   1064d ago
silence speaks volumes
Many may think there is nothing to report but there could be so much they want to say that they dont want to spoil it by saying anything that can be taken out of context.

They do their own reveal on their own terms. Not like its a first but in this day and age, they must have some really good NDA's in the company to keep things so hush hush.

edit @minato. That is a good possibility. Ms caught by surprise at the specs of the PS4 would be like nintendo and sega caught off guard by sony when they announced the ps1.

Sega went through some last minute changes to try and up the specs of the saturn to compete. Ms probably had things all figured out the last year or so but with sony's reveal, they could be making some last minute changes as well.

Your theory is very viable but it is also very viable that Sony caught them off guard and they are scrambling to match them. Either way Games rule the roost in my house and whoever has the better ones will get my money.
JeffGUNZ  +   1064d ago
The fact that Microsoft has remained silent and has not countered with a quick reveal shows they are confident in what they have. I doubt that MS is scrambling to change specs because of Sonys PS4, considering games are pretty much done or close to being done for this system (exclusives) and every company already has the dev. kit to work on third party games. I feel like MS is confident on their new console and is sticking to their original time table.
Jockamo  +   1064d ago
Yah, MS has never "reacted" to any sort of Sony reveal. They have always gone on their own pace, which I think is respectable. They rarely criticize Sony directly and say how MS is better, rather, they just default to "we're excited about blah blah blah and think it's the bees knees." I've always felt MS handled knee jerk reactions well...

Caught them off guard? Jesus the naivete of some of you people. It's a SONY CONSOLE, that's a bit better than the other Sony console already available!

Actually it was Sony who scrambled to announce first. Which is why they showed no console with a few features and handful of games. It was even Sony who said they didn't want MS to get a jump on them. Microsoft will have a complete showing like they always do. Sony is being hush hush because they are waiting for MS to announce so they can see what else they can copy. That's how Sony is they take a "lets see what Nintendo and MS are doing" approach.

Uh, you do know that MS announced FIRST when they started a countdown to E3 right? Everyone knew that was their given date for a console announcement. It was the first time MS EVER had a countdown to E3.

A month later, Sony releases their trailer for the PS4 announcement just AFTER they said that they would wait for MS to announce first.....

Then in Feb Sony give a thrown together conference for their console announcement without having a console to even show. Not to mention no working demos of Gaikai because it's not even working yet, 3 1st party game trailers with 2 being gameplay.

Sony had no intentions to announce until last minute.

It was MS that forced Sony to reveal earlier then they originally planned and it was MS that forced Sony to develop a new console to release sooner rather then later.
JeffGUNZ  +   1064d ago
I agree on some of your points. I also think that MS not responding or moving up their release announcement shows complete confidence in their product and shows they are not intimidated by Sony.
MrBeatdown  +   1064d ago
Wow. I've seen some pretty desperate attempts at spin, but this one really takes the cake.

You think a little E3 countdown clock caught Sony off guard, forcing them to change everything from their hardware to their release plans? I mean, really? You honestly think Microsoft showing their console at E3 would come as a total surprise to Sony, when everyone and their mom was expecting it?

June for a console launch?? Terrible time to release it. Great time to unveil it...but launch? No.
Roper316  +   1064d ago
I personally think launching at the holidays is the stupid thing to do. The companies never have enough stock to cover the holiday season demand when it launches during that time and by time more stock comes around people don't have the extra cash because they spent it all during the holiday on what was available.

Launching in June would give MS plenty of time so that when holiday time comes they would be able to meet the demand for the console. Where as launching in November you will only have the initial amount of consoles available and will lose out on the possible sales due to lack of stock.

I also called that MS would announce & release their console @ E3.

Yeah, but I think if it were to launch in June it wouldn't be as complexed to program for as the Sega Saturn at it's time. Rushing it out with complexed hardware hurt Sega. Actually, did you all know the main thing Sega did well was having near perfect arcade ports? Evenso, Microsoft learned from last time. They will not loose another billion, they like making money not loosing it.
deadfrag  +   1064d ago
They are releasing in june,because they think they can win some market share to sony ,not to mention that the reports are that the new xbox is 40% less powerfull than the PS4,another reason to release first and try to get some buyers.The lack of response from MS to Sony PS4 announce just makes obvious that the next xbox is underpower when match against The PS4.If the console was atleast a match or better MS would already try to kill the hype around the PS4 in some way,but thats not happening.And fROM the looks and the move made Sony add the info that the new xbox would release first,and Sony also had Knowledge of the next xbox software specs more or less thats the reason they came out and told what were the PS4 specs,to enable people from not jumping straight and buy a new xbox that haves underpower HARDWARE when match to the PS4.

First off, who said they are ACTUALLY releasing anything? It's very funny that some sony die hards here think they know what's going on. So, MS is releasing a console, which they have yet to reveal (saying only "MS does not respond to rumors), on a date in which they have yet to announce? Possibly, during the google translate, the language got mixed and it's most likely "REVEAL" the system in June.

What reports are saying it's 40% less powerful? Oh, wait, rumors again on a system that has not been announced yet. Ok, sure, that must be fact then.

Where do you get the idea that the next xbox is less powerful solely off the fact that MS hasn't responded to Sonys announcement? Perhaps, maybe just perhaps Microsoft is confident in their product and this silence shows that Sonys announcement did little to nothing to intimidate them make a move and to just stick with their original mindset. If anything, Sony announced first because they HAD to. They rushed that announcement, it was nothing less than average. Sure, nice specs, but we hardly saw anything in game, we didn't see the console, we didn't get a price point, and we didn't get a release date. Sony also stated it was important for them to reveal first (ie, due to the lack of market they lost this gen to the 360). You know what is killing the PS4 hype, all these next xbox articles and people wondering what MS has to offer. MS has not even ANNOUNCED a system and they have all this hype already.

So, tell me how Sony knew MS "software" specs, (I think you meant HARDware)? If Sony knew what MS had to offer, don't you think they would have made comments about that? Wouldn't they say something like "Sony has blah blah blah which is twice as powerful as other next generation consoles? They didn't say or hint at that at all, so where are you coming up with this stuff? All your points are just pathetic fanboy desires that you pray will come true. It's amusing really, but also very pathetic.

Tito08  +   1063d ago
What's really hyping the Next Xbox is the US media & fanboys like you because of the fact the PS4 is already announced, and the fact the PS brand is more popular worldwide, and I don't think Sony really rushed the PS4 announcement, there's a reason that was called the PS Meeting, which they usually do every year, & that's how they announced the Vita. To me, you really sound very desperate that you probably need an oxygen tank..

It could be Microsoft are confident in their product, or could be they're desperate as well, because we don't know what's going on behind closed doors, in the case of both, but at least Sony said "I'm present" for next-gen, I'm sure MS will show off soon before E3, so stop being a crybaby!

@ Tito08

what are you talking about? I never once said the hype for the 360 is all positive, did I? Please also explain to me how am I a fanboy when I enjoy both my PS3 and 360? I simply replied to deadfrags post with his ZERO backed up facts and his desire for the next xbox to fail so he can sleep at night.

Also, when did I say PS brand isn't the most popular in the world? I am pretty sure I just stated that the 360 took a good portion of the PS userbase this generation, which is obvious.

You really are going to compare the vita reveal to the PS4 reveal? Give me a break. Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't the vita reveal have the vita THERE, a price point, and a release date? The Vita is a handheld, it's not a next gen. console, you can't even begin to compare that.

How do I sound desperate? Since I have an opposing opinion of yours I must be some crazy fanboy, right? Get off your high horse and realize I replied to the original guy above me.

My post simply refuted and questioned Deadfrags post and his blatant bias post. Yet somehow, you got offended.
Your last paragraph is irrelevant. Before the reveal, do didn't know next gen consoles were coming? Give me a break. Did you really think Sony was going to say, "eh, we're taking next gen. off, sorry"? Again, how am I a crybaby when I have a different opinion then you? You won't make it far in the world when you get aggressive towards someone who doesn't share your belief.
Tito08  +   1063d ago
There are fanboys that have both consoles, so yeah, in a lot of cases it doesn't matter.

Reread my paragraph if it looks anything like comparing. Dude the Vita reveal was in Japan, they didn't announce a release date nor a price drop until E3, that was in 2011,so please do some research. Also even if it's a handeld, it's a Playstation first and foremost, So yeah it needs to be mentioned whether you like it or not!

You don't have to deny it being a fanboy, you can be opposing, but not with that "MS hasn't announced the console and it`s already a hype" and that the next xbox articles are killing the PS4 hype, how is it the PS4 hype being getting killed when developers are praising it, which are the people that matters most, the media and fanboys wants to bring it down to praise a product that hasn't being announced yet, and you the Xbox community try too hard!

And I was not offended, simply stating facts that you don't have, and I don't care if you don't share my beliefs because your comment proof the obvious, I'm more of a PS fan than fanboy, because I don't always agree with everything Sony does, unlike Xbox boys who praises Microsoft even for not allowing Rare to work on Killer Instinct, MS is so "GENIUS"

I can't even begin to imagine what would happen if Microsoft actually launched the Next Xbox in June. It's Psychological Warfare....

"Sony says we're going to wait and see what M$ announce first before we announce anything. BAMB! Feb.20- PS4 gets announced and will be launching Holiday 2013. M$ hires an event partner to plan out a conference to announce their Next Xbox in April- they actually show off the console and one up Sony(LOL) and announce Holiday 2013 release. M$ then graciously lets Sony go first on the Monday Slot at E3, where they show off the console and announce prices, launch dates, etc. M$ takes Sony's Tuesday spot, shows off some games, badda-bing and Don Mattrick's final words are "We will be launching Xbox 720 in 3...2...1...XBOX 720 IS HERE!!".

Crowd goes wild, articles praising/flaming Xbox 720 and how they are copying Sega are already in flux, and Sony goes :O"

Starting to become concerned with next gen.

Know both have supposedly been working on their systems for a while, yet by all counts Sony's going to put theirs out maybe in November - eight months after announcing it? - now MS might be going for three before even a comment?

What the hell is wrong with these companies? What the hell happened to common or at least reasonably sounding good sense?

Do you think 8 months is too short? I think announcing any hardware or software and then not launching it within the year is too long. Hype builds up to unrealistic levels the longer something takes to launch.

yeah it would be cool.

This would be awesome if they could launch in June. Sony would be in trouble. It would be nice to see them both launch in November. It would be a 6 year long battle.

If it comes out in june, what games will it have?
unicron7  +   1063d ago
Exactly. Seems like the first wave of next gen software is being prepped for this holiday season. No way most devs would have anything by June.

p2p means others suck data from you, as you do the same, it only takes away traffic from Microsofts side... not yours... or anybody...

I said MS would announce & launch their console @ E3 and everyone said I was nuts. My logic was MS feels they have to be 1st to market so weather their console is ready or nit it has to release before the PS4. Funny now we are getting articles about it.

By reading the comments alone you could say it is N4G.

They'll reveal it in June, not release it for purchase :P
ajax17  +   1063d ago
Yeah, they were relying on google translate after all. A June launch makes no sense anyway. Who would want to buy a console in the summer? Console buying is for winter months when people are stuck indoors.
KillrateOmega  +   1063d ago
Releasing it in the winter months also put sit closer to the Christmas season where people are buying left and right. On top of that, many big-name titles release during that time as well.
