Like Sony's PlayStation 4, the new console is expected to hit stores this holiday season and many analysts and investors are hanging their hopes on the new machines to kickstart the video game industry back into growth mode.
"Like Sony's PlayStation 4, the new console is expected to hit stores this holiday season"
Hmm those recent rumors (as well as yield issues, see bottom link) about problems in development could knock the launch back into next year, which wouldn't be the end of the world.
Edit - Just noticed the article on the frontpage right now:
Kinda supports what I'm saying here.
If all of this turns out to be true then it really would be smarter to not launch it this year.
Well if the past copies itself....You get the picture.
seems like we get a new "what to expect" article every day. Typically just a regurgitation of "here's all the rumors we've heard, plus some personal opinion.".
Wouldn't they have 1 spare month b4 the holy days I mean if you count up to 6 months from now Wouldn't They land on the Beginning of November. Or is there something else that I'm missing here?
Playstaion fans. . .as expected. You'd think they had games to play.
What? Can Xbox and Nintendo fans not multitask? I've been on my Vita, PS3, phone, and laptop all at once. Well, not like you have games to play, I guess. If you did, you'd have less time for trolling Sony articles, yourself. Edit: Who's "back to believing" what now? You start with the generalizations, as if "having games to play" should somehow stop Sony fans from posting here. And I find it amazing that you can spew your vitriol in whatever article you choose, but Sony fans shouldn't be able to comment wherever they want.
So are we back to believing that multiplat games aren't real games? Bioshock and Tomb Raider didn't happen then? I must have dreamt those.
You've been on your PS3, Vita, phone and laptop all at once? Your games can't be very engaging if you need all 4 devices to keep you busy.
Good chuckle there, a person permitted to speak only once per article is telling me I'm trolling.
Anyway my point was that PS fans on this site seem to enjoy trolling Microsoft more than they do playing games.
If your referring to playstation fans, Yes we have games to play. Im just resting my PS3 and looking for trolls like yourself here at N4G on my spare time. And we still have incoming games which is confirmed and has a release date. Can you say the same for your system comrade??
Yes I can. Or are we pretending only 1st party games count as games?
Can't wait until MS talks so the rumors can be put to rest.
Be funny if the first thing they said was "It doesn't play used games and requires you to be always online". Then, the rumours could stop. Then we could burn them at the stake once and for all!!!
i am expecting live demos on stage and games.
Live Demos? Maybe some celebs pretending to enjoy playing some of the games.
hahahaha you reminded me of that Usher performance! I was ashamed all the way. but when i talk about live demos it's real demos of games not pre-recorded things. I dont wanna see this for example: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
This time it will be justin bieber!! they need a bigger and younger star right?? XD, Who else to best present the Xbox brand other than justin?? LOL
I expect it to be black with bits of neon green in it. To have a very comfy controller. To have a better Kinect. Be on par with PS4 in terms of power. And I expect MS to continue to misuse the Rare brand which you can probably tell by my Avatar makes me sad.
i heard Kobe and Justin Beaver will be at the Microsoft event. Also a Rhianna special . Get them casuals Micro
They should bring the entire Laker team with Kobe, I mean they have nothing better to do after flopping in the playoffs.
Expect it to pick ya pocket when ya not looking
I hope they make a game console. I don't want or care about all the other"features" My smart tv and my cable box handle all these things with no problems or paywall other than my cable and internet bill. Though I do concede that a lot of people will be stoked on these ideas, the only thing I need from a new xbox is games. And please make multiplayer free?
