something tells me we've just seen our first xbox 720 game or techdemo screenshot.

That is what I think. could be wrong but images like that don't create themselves and unless a source is found I would be willing to bet that that is a direct screenshot from a techdemo or a game.

the whole image strikes me as a realtime render from an engine I don't recognize. :)

who knows guess we'll see in a few days.

"something tells me we've just seen our first xbox 720 game or techdemo screenshot."

Something tells me we haven't. It's obviously a take on the The Creation of Adam by Michaelangelo which is in the Cystine Chapel. In this case it is Microsoft's marketing version of a new Adam.

In the original painting god is on the left and Adam on the right. This imples the new Xbox will create a new person...a new you. It's a good marketing poster but I highly doubt it is a game.

Except in the original painting God is on the right and Adam is on the left. Your interpretation still makes sense, though.

Are you people still calling it 720? A name that was coined by a game site and NOT officially by Microsoft. Even the project name was Durango and you idiots are still calling it 720. No wonder the industry thinks you guys are sheep

With comments like that no wonder you're an error. Chill out man, people can call it whatever they want until Microsoft officially announces what they are calling it.

Even with the PS4 when it was code named Orbis, most people still call it the PS4 before Sony announce that, that is in fact what they are calling it.

OT: I thought the image is pretty cool and artistic. Looking forward to the show tomorrow with great anticipation.

DeadlyFire  +   431d ago
Think more like Windows RT(ARM edition). That is the version they are pushing towards ARM devices, phones and such. Next Xbox would have to have a lite version of Windows on it if any version at all so I am thinking Windows 8 RT(ARM version)
hkgamer  +   430d ago
I doubt it.

For some reason, it's probably something to do with Kinect.

What I saw when I first saw it is that Kinect will be able to detect the users finger movements, (like it was suppose to for kinect 1.0).
ginsunuva  +   430d ago
But the xbox would have to have an ARM processor, which it won't

We don't know that, I know you are basing it on the year old leaked documents and rumors, but within that time frame, it could have changed. Let us not make such bold comments until tomorrow. You may in fact be right, but nothing is for certain until it is officially announce as such.

DOMination-  +   431d ago
Just because it's a camera of sorts, doesn't make it a rip off. That's like saying Apple ripped off Nokia for making a phone. Yeah, it's a phone but a completely different phone.

The EyeToy was a nice little innovation at the time, but it was essentially just a webcam. The Kinect can track objects and people in a 3D space and has a motor to adjust it's viewing angles automatically. So is it an evolution of the EyeToy? Well, yes it is - nearly everything has to evolve from something else, but is it a ripoff? No.
duli14  +   431d ago
With that logic you could say MS ripped off Sony for making a gaming console.
nukeitall  +   430d ago

"Lol, another ignorant fool. You do realize MS ripped off Sony's Eyetoy / PSEye first, right?"

So you are saying Sony started that abomination of motion controlls with a camera?

I guess now we know who to blame! It all started with Sony whom sowed the evil seed that sprouted into Kinect!!! :D

It is called a teaser. It is made with the intent to tease and entice conversations on what tomorrow's show would include or be about.

Of course they are not going to show off games now when the unveil is tomorrow.

If you are talking about when the console gets released and still no games, then all I got to do to that is shake my head. #Shame

Voice commands & console voice feedback among other advanced functionality and features(motion/andvanced smart system software? I wonder if this is why the box is kept so secret, features like these and the powerful hardware needed for it)

Advanced new Kinect hardware and software blended with specialized Ease Of Access-like software found in later MSFT Windows OS.

It is quite simple really to figure out. see all 5 fingers from the human and robot form? it means Kinect 2.0 can now recognize and track all 5 of your fingers. Imagine playing a tactical FPS and you can summon command with using finger command. 5/21 can't come soon enough.

Stand down Skynet-Kinect-Xbox-Robot-Chick en. It's a picture of the Sisteen Chapel, and if in fact it has ANY relevance to Kinect, who cares? I'm curious to see what the new Xbox is going to be like, I'm stoked. I can't wait. I can totally imagine new voice commands, maybe hand motions. We are already getting that kind of movement on Smart Tv's, why not? MS has some interesting stuff up their sleaves, and I can't wait to see but looking at some douchebags tweet doesn't make me drool. I'm already buying a PS4, unless MS just shocks and awes the shit out of me.
YodaCracker  +   431d ago
Finally we will see the true potential of Kinect with the power of the next Xbox. The Xbox 360 has really been the biggest thing holding back Kinect. Simply shipping with every unit will really allow developers to experiment knowing every person who buys their game will have the Kinect camera. And with all the extra processing power, Kinect will actually work like it's supposed to!

And how is Kinect supposed to work?

Take a favourite genre, say FPS. Kinect 2.0 can detect the movement of your body, your stance, your limbs and all 10 fingers, all very precise.

Now here come the Locust, the Covenant, the terrorists. On Blu ray, so they keep on coming. How are you going to put them down? By pulling imaginary triggers and mimicing every combatmove on your carpet? Fun for one night, precise for one hour, after that people will go back to playing with a controller.

Same with Forza. Hands need to rest on a wheel, not in mid-air.

Kinect can be good, but imo not with games and genres Xbox is loved for. Fable is a 'good' example of how Kinect works, I sure hope now they improved Kinect the other main Xbox series don't follow that path.

After God created Adam and Eve, he reached out to his creation.
The robot is a symbol of human creation, and we are god.
But God never touched Adam. It was more of a reflection in the mirror, but through God's image. This is definitely Kinect 2.0.. The robot (Xbox 720) mimics and mirrors your every movement. I love these kinds of teases and puzzles that the gaming industry gives us.

The core loved Kinect with the 360 in games like Steel Batallion and Rise of Nightmares which is why they will fall in love with Kinect 2.0 games on the 720.

Jokes aside.

Microsoft, Kinect 2.0 better not be the main focus of the 720 because many people hate the device. If you go full casual (tropic thunder reference) then your fans will abandon you except for the Kinect lovers.
