Microsoft: "Xbox One To Be A Box That Makes Xbox 360 Immediately Outdated"

Adam Sessler & Albert Penello on the Xbox One (Interview)

Summary:

*"We want to make an awesome next-gen box that will make the Xbox 360 immediately outdated."

*Xbox One Instant switching experience -- a way to modernize gaming; All games are loaded to hard drive; faster. Can play game before it's fully installed and/or do other things with the Xbox One's system features (like watch a video).

*"Loading screens will probably be up to the developer." -- But they overall want to see it reduced and/or gone.

*"(Sony's) doing things in their hardware to make it best that they can. We're doing things to our hardware to make it the best that we can. I don't believe the difference between these systems will be as significant as comparing individual components. How is it that a 400 HP Porsche can be faster than a 700 HP Corvette?" -- Overall it's balance and trade offs and it'll come down to the games.

*Putting something in/on the box = adoption. Developers ask questions inv...

The story is too old to be commented.

Well yeah...that's kinda the point of Next Gen consoles.

YNWA961056d ago (Edited 1056d ago )

Yeah really, same for every console ever... why is this article here???

Xheavyx,
Thats ok, gave me time to buy every good game on PS3, preowned of course and catch up... Were did resistance go wrong??? 1 and 2 were good....

cleft51056d ago

Well it's not really the same for the PS3 because Sony is still releasing top quality 1st party games for it.

vigilante_man1056d ago

Don't say that! I have played Resistance 1 & 2 over and over and am just about to play 3. Some say it is the best one for single player...

ZodTheRipper1056d ago

... and when asked about the always-online stuff Microsoft's response was to just get a X360 ...funny how strategies change when sales drop.

rainslacker1056d ago (Edited 1056d ago )

@cleft

outdated and irrelevant are two different things. I think this guy meant to say irrelevant since they aren't producing any major titles on it anymore. I'll let others decide on when they feel the 360 became irrelevant to them, it's fairly subjective.

badz1491055d ago

hey, Microsoft? what about "just buy the 360" thing? oh yeah... Don left and you guys just want to make like like it never happened!

and it's kinda easy for them to just ditch the 360 altogether considering they didn't even bother making games for it and let it ride on multiplats these last couple of years!

Interesting quote.

"(Sony's) doing things in their hardware to make it best that they can. We're doing things to our hardware to make it the best that we can.

Pixel_Enemy1056d ago

Interesting way of dodging the question. Sessler was asking all the tough questions. The guy did a decent job of answering them all though. I give him props.

pedrof931056d ago

Since when does more HP gives more speed ?

It give more strength to the car not speed. Every man should know that.

AznGaara1056d ago

Well of course a LIGHTER car with less horsepower is going to be as fast or a little faster than a heavier car with more horsepower lol. Ironic cause not only is the xBone bigger than the PS4 its also less power... I kid... not really lol.

Darrius Cole1056d ago

@pedrof93

Indeed, horsepower does NOT equal speed. There is A LOT more to it than that.

Every man should know that....

...And so should every person that plays, Gran Turismo, Forza or even Need 4 Speed.

torchic1056d ago

Corvette ZR1 clocked the Nordschleife faster than any other Porsche...

awks...

My thought immediately after finishing this article.

"Xbox One To Be A Box That Makes Xbox 360 Immediately Outdated"

Just like the Ps3 was.

Mystogan1056d ago

Except the the 360 still had better looking games then the PS3.

HammadTheBeast1056d ago

@Mystogan

One example please.

Don't mention overall quality of multiplatforms, we know it's due to laziness.

First Party vs First Party.

Pleas.

starchild1056d ago

Laziness? *rolls eyes*

As a PC gamer I find your stupid little squabbles pathetic. There are only marginal differences between games on the PS3 and 360. The difference between either console and the PC is significant.

Yes, the PS3 had slightly better looking exclusives and the 360 had slightly better looking multiplatform games. But does it really matter when both consoles aren't anywhere close to having the best graphics? Surely if you care so much about graphics you would be gaming on PC.

AngelicIceDiamond1056d ago

Lol this Albert guys aggressive. And its about time MS is getting aggressive with people.

I'll keep an open mind believe what MS is doing is real. I don't see any reason to believe everything is doing is fake.

But

All this remains to be seen. And that's why the console is releasing in November 22nd so they can see if its real or not.

News Flash:

September 5th automatically makes September 4th, outdated.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1055d ago

That's understandable and great because that's what any company should do with a evolution with their product but at what cost to the support of the X360 because it's going to be very relevant for a number of years because of it's install base but hasn't really been support for some years now. I mean it been almost absent from conferences/announcements expect from it's very small highlight at E3.

XB1 should of course make X360 feel outdated but it shouldn't make it any least relevant that it is.

mewhy321056d ago

Lets just hope that micro$oft doesn't abandon the 360 the way they did with the first xbox. I have two 360's and don't want to have them abandoned like my original xbox was. Of course the box to make the bone immediately outdated is the PS4. Already preordered baby.

IcicleTrepan1056d ago

The reason they ditched the first Xbox so quickly was because NVIDIA stopped producing the graphics chips. So they couldn't manufacture new Xboxes, forcing them to start on Xbox 360 early.

xHeavYx1056d ago (Edited 1056d ago )

MS already abandoned the 360 (hardcore) gamers 4 years ago.
@Negative
Please tell me, what amazing hardcore MS has brought to the 360 in the past 4 years other than Halo/Forza/Gears, oh wait... you only have 1 bubble

negative1056d ago

xHeavYx

I consider myself a hardcore gamer and I have no idea what you're talking about.

So keep spewing your garbage. It's expected now.

ziggurcat1056d ago

@ negative:

probably referring to MS's shift of focus towards kinect, and MS's lack of 1st party exclusives (in comparison to sony).

ABeastNamedTariq1056d ago

Honestly, it already is abandoned. :/

Gears and State of Decay were the only notable releases this year, at least, to me. And that Fable game that is coming out. Besides that? Nothing, really.

Ripsta7th1056d ago

@Heavy-the reason he has one bubble is because u guys dont like it when we talk good about the X1 so you bring your army(or fake accounts) and bubble us down, Simple as that.

xHeavYx1056d ago

@Ripsta
Really? Because all I see from him are bully comments, never seen a fact other than "I like Xbox better, therefore everything Xbox wins"

ThanatosDMC1056d ago

^Y'all still didnt answer xHeavYx's question "Please tell me, what amazing hardcore MS has brought to the 360 in the past 4 years other than Halo/Forza/Gears?"

As long as this isn’t hinting at a drop of support for the 360.

Godmars2901056d ago

They're saying they'll support the 360 for three years post XB1 launch, but then they said something similar about the first Xbox.

Then again, the first Xbox was nothing but an under delivering money sink.

iMixMasTer8721056d ago SpamShow
Scatpants1056d ago

What support are you referring to? 360 has had like 1 good exclusive per year for the last 2 years.

Axonometri1056d ago

Is this how MS plans on supporting the 360 for 3 more years?

daggertoes831056d ago (Edited 1056d ago )

Outdated and irrelevant are two different things.

Axonometri1056d ago

Well If I was wanting to continue selling a product I would not go around telling everyone it is outdated. Especially after just saying I was going to support the older one for 3 years. But it is outdated... so...

MizTv1056d ago

2007 was the best year for 360
