Danger for the Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4

This gameplayer article highlights a growing concern amongst consumers that the consoles manufacturers must take into account in the designs of the next-generation of machines. It takes an in-depth look at the problems PC gaming faces and why the consoles should veer down another path.

"Now, though, for better or worse we are beginning to see a real revolution in console gaming. Where once console specifications were defined and immutable, they have started to become varied and variable. Console manufacturers, it would seem, are starting to take aim against one of the major strengths of the PC platform: flexibility. But this change is going to come at a cost, and if not handled well could end up doing more harm than good."

I have a feeling that the next Xbox console will be named "Xbox 2".

theKiller3386d ago

i was just thinking the same thing now!!
because they cant keep adding 360 to each new console because when ps5 come there will be xbox 1080 and thats just sounds stupid just like xbox 360, and also xbox 360 wasnt much different from the xbox except with the CPU and GPU upgrade and few things they added later by copying sony.

Those of you who reported this article are an embarresment to this site and to yourselves. This is a great article, and I can only assume you didn't read it, or lack a brain.

Pull your heads out of your arses and go back to nickeloden.co or wherever you tweens hang.

Since when is the lifespan of a game console 5 years? Sounds like Microsoft cronies clearing a path for a sooner than anticipated Xbox 720 instead of giving gamers their money's worth. Unbelievable that they would even consider this a thought with consoles costing much more with each upcoming generation. What will a $1000 console lifespan be, 2 years?

Guy Incognito3386d ago

that type of life cycle, but now since the systems are getting more complex and so is the process of making games for it, i won't be surprised that they last 7-8 years.

i know sony knows this, but the question mark is microsoft.

dan-boy3386d ago

after that time, you can pretty much assume that the hardware is not gonna be able to do much more than it can do already. although recent ps2 games look better than they did 3 years ago, because the longer developers have with a machine, the more they will squeeze out of it! but at the end of the day, the machine will have reached it's pinnacle!

and in five years, things within the industry will have moved on considerably! i want my console to be able to keep up. the ps3 and the 360 have what, 512mb ram, the gpu is slighly better in the 360, and the cell is supposedly top-class. but at the end of the day, they're both gonna look a bit lame by 2010, imgine how lame the ps3 will look if it does indeed last until 2016????

5 years is fine in my book, and yeah i think mocrosoft will release new hardware in 2010....5 years after the 360. sony will folow the same path and release something around late 2011/early 2012. the ps3 won't be solely leading the charge til 2016! you can gurantee it!

Foliage3386d ago

Since when has the lifespan of a 360 passed a year?

I had to say it...

LinuxGuru3386d ago

Excellent article. I agree on all points.
