Everything you need to know about the next Xbox

'Xbox 720' could be the hottest gift for Christmas 2011

Powering up the Xbox: what's in store for the next-gen console?

Will Microsoft launch its next-gen Xbox in 2011? There have been a couple of articles recently that have speculated on just that.

TechRadar looks at whether the 'Xbox 720' will feature a return to Intel chips, the inclusion of a Blu-ray drive, and more storage than you can ever fill.

A PlayStation 4 and potential 'Xbox 720' could arrive as early as 2011, estimates Crytek president and CEO Cevat Yerli. Industry analyst Colin Sebastian agrees, suggesting that "the general consensus amongst industry professionals is that a new generation of home consoles will arrive on the market in 2011 or 2012."

It will come out a year or so before the PS4
It will RRoD on every Sucka that Buys it !!!
The PS3 will kick its Ass Never mind The PS4
And with in 2 years it will be just like the 360 an outdated pile of Garbage
And Just like the 360 is having its outdated Ass Kicked into Last Gen
The PS4 will show the 720 what Next Gen is all about AGAIN !!!!!
A year or so Head Start will not help the 720 stop the Juggernaut that will be the PS4
And the Good thing is if it was the PS4 that had a year or so Head Start
The 720 would not see it's Ass for Dusts
It wont be Capable of Catching and Surpassing like the PS3 has Done with the 360

Poor BoTs

Doomed to a Life of Mediocrity

Never mind
You got Great games like
Too Humongous
Smears 2
Alan Sleep
and Banjo KaBlowie

As i just Said
Doomed to a Life of Mediocrity

Hey lair
The truth hurt's dont it
Not as much as your Xbox Blowing up on you Knuckle Dragging Ass
But it Hurt's

I think M$ will give adbadon the project altogether. They almost did with the original Xbox losing a total of 4 billions...and things are looking the same for the Crapbox360 at the moment. One more fail and no more Crapbox720.

Game developers are not supporting them at all, here's why (looking at 2008-09:

Games released thus-far:

lost flop = flop
flop dragon = flop
tales of flop = flop (7.25 from Game Informer)
too flop = flop
infinite flop = flop (7.1 from IGN)
360 = king of FLOPS

Anticipated releases from Crapbox360

Banjo3 = Awful textures, bad game play, and now they've turned the game into a racer for 40 BUCKS. This will get owned by LBP 8 ways to Sunday
Gears2 = AKA Gears1.5 using the same old engine 4 years ago, 5vs5 MP
Alan Wake = a myth
L4D = N64 graphics anyone?

While, the anticipated released PS3 exclusives during FALL 2008:

HOME (free)
LittleBigPlanet (21 Oct)
Resistance 2 (04 Nov)
SOCOM: Confrontation (14 Oct)
BioShock with Exclusive DLC (21 Oct)
Motorstorm:Pacific Rift (07 Oct)
Valkyria Chronicles (11 Nov)

Keep in mind that these are ALL PS3 exclusive, unlike crapbox exclusives which also appear on PC (e.g. Gears1+Mass Effect)

Anticipated releases (PS3 exclusives) in 2009:

God of War 3
Heavy Rain
White Knight Chronicles
Uncharted 2
Twisted Metal
Final Fantasy Versus XIII (maybe 2010)
PS3 exclusive from the legendary Team ICO

What does Crapbox360 have to offer in 2009? Halo Power Ranger Wars…

Wait, what about Crapbox360 last hope, the beloved FFXIII?

You can only get the true FF experience on the PS3:
PS3 = Lead platform for FFXIII, and has been since 2005.
PS3 version = On a 50 GB Blu-ray disc, uncompressed.

In addition:
1. Exclusive FFXIII demo in March 2009 on PS3
2. Exclusive FFXIII in Japan - for you Japanese speaker to port since no regional lock unlike the crapbox DVDs
3. Exclusive FFXIII Versus on PS3
4. Exclusive FFXIII Agito on PSP

The 360 version is a port. So I really shouldn't be calling it a "version" at all.
The 360 PORT hasn't even gone into development.
The 360 PORT will be on multiple DVD's and it will “probably” STILL look worse than the PS3 version (e.g. RAGE)

ON top of:

RROD + warranty expiring, Microwave Oven-heat + Lawnmower-noise + Disc scratchier + non-BR + 50 USD Live per year + no Wifi + no HDMI port + no upgradable HD = horrible values for your money

Yes, zapass we already know that you are a little emo Sony homo that needs multiple accounts to avoid looking like no one agrees with you. I bet you sit and cut yourself because that little 12 yr old immature b*tch Juuken, won't have anything to do with you. You should go kill yourself immediately.

Pain3756d ago

Just like the XBOX 2 is a Hi-Rez Clone of the PS2.

zapass3756d ago (Edited 3756d ago )

i'm here baby, waddup?
i'm honored you're taking some time off that jerkoff to mention me by name!

time to get out of the closet buddy, we know you 360 b!tches are softies deep inside that big macho armor :) it's OK, we understand, you're big tough boys who don't like pu$$y, there's nothing wrong with it!

i've always wondered about the steroids thing: when you fart, is it kinda like "pfwwwwwwat" or more like "floooooooooop"?

take it easy buddy, and eh... no, i don't have multiple accounts and this is why i got 1 bubble left, but that's fine, it's not like i enjoy long discussions with you puSSies anyways :)

ciao baby

oh I forgot...
everything we need to know about xbollox720 is that once again, there'll be some baboons to jump in and that they'll end up with a RED ASS and a lot of pain in it

Sony will not release ps4 until 2012 at least. 720 will be competing with ps3 then ps4 will release with newer tech again and rerinse and repeat.

AAACE53756d ago

Since you have a magic crystal ball, why don't you tell me what the winning lottery numbers will be! No use of wasting that power on something like when a new console will come out. Come on... I'll split the winnings with you:D

RealityCheck3756d ago (Edited 3756d ago )

In the end, it's all about the games (we're all gamers right?). If they release good first party games and convince enough good 3rd party developers, people will move to the new consoles. Some people might grumble but most will move on. There are a ton of people (including me) who put up with defective consoles, a console cycle is just another hurdle to keep gaming. Still ends up cheaper than upkeeping a top of the line gaming PC.

Fishy Fingers3756d ago (Edited 3756d ago )

There's almost as much speculation in your comment as there is in the article.

I see what your saying though.

TheTwelve3756d ago

Well, fact is that I don't want to talk about the Wii2, Ps4 OR Xbox 720(do you really think it will be called the 720? I mean, I see the thinking but it really doesn't hold much meaning besides the obvious. At least "360" has a lot of symbolism around it!). It annoys me that we can't just focus on what we have now, with systems that haven't even truly showcased their full potential yet.

That being said, I would honestly be surprised if the 720 comes out THAT late. I wouldn't mind if it happened as you described, Hitman, but this time around Sony needs to be ready and not seem as if they got caught with their pants down.


FantasyStar3756d ago

You won't split the winnings! You'll club him in the back of the head like a hooker and take all the money +his clothes!

Spydiggity3756d ago

if these companies start to sacrifice real progress in favor of something gimmicky like the Wii, i'm out.

cito35th3756d ago

serious, these are all just ASSUMPTIONS! people please, stop fantasizing about ideas that a system can be... none of this is OFFICIAL so for all we know it can come in one, two, or in three years

playstation said themself (official) that the ps3 is on a 10-year life plan
idk bout 360 but soon cause it lacks features that will be needed to last 10 years (blu-ray)

ChickeyCantor3755d ago (Edited 3755d ago )

" 720 will be competing with ps3 "
Wait...who says "720" won't have hardware that surpasses that of the Ps3? I'm not saying it will or it won't.
I'm just wondering what IF? how is it then competing with the PS3?
According to logic thats going on soon its weaker its not competing.

" do you really think it will be called the 720?"
just like i don't really understand why people think Wii will be called Wii2.

bumnut3756d ago

im not buying either console on release day unless there are some good games available.

AAACE53756d ago

I think I said that when this gen of games was about to release. But the closer it got... the more I wanted these new consoles!

P4KY B3756d ago

Halo 4 would be enough for me

DG3756d ago (Edited 3756d ago )

Man as long as its under 500 ($450.00) and is BC Ill buy one just cuz Im a techno-file. But anything over 500 ill wait. Thats exactly why sony never got my business but then again they will when I get a sub $150 bluray drive for my PC around christmas.

PS: This article is kind of pointless except the inside look from a CPU specialist. 16-32 cores I'm looking forward to that. Couple that with a TB drive, motion control for my kid, and some basic HD PRV recording I'm sold. I still dont understand how both MS and SOny are claiming that their consoles are media hubs but none record TV. I know Sony just released an add on and 360 has Netflix but both arent really up to the job. And both get pretty expensive when you add up the costs.

Raoh3756d ago

2012 for a new console for me is too soon..

the ps2 is still pushing strong...

the xbox could probably still put out some hits if it were still active...

with that said

imagine how much longer the ps3 could last.....

if you leave it up to microsoft they would release a new xbox every year

Bangladesh3756d ago

The 360 will be around for 10yrs.

thebigtarget13756d ago

that makes no sense. they would ot be able to make a profit, what with the low sales and high development costs. your obviously not very smart, and neither would MS be if they listened to you. Also, the PS2 is just an alternative for everyone to get if they cant afford anything better. i doubt the PS3 will ever be worth that little. With THAT said i hope you think more about your comments b4 you post them, that way we wont look at your whining

DG3756d ago

"if you leave it up to microsoft they would release a new xbox every year "

As much as I dont like MS its not financially viable to release a console every 3 years let alone 1. Take 360 for an example when did it start turning a profit this year?

The next question isn't necessarily 'what will the next Xbox look like?' but 'will there even be one?'

this quote applies to sony as well. i'm really pleased with the ps3. i can always upgrade my HDD. and, as devs get more familiar with the system - any development issues should be much less of a problem. also, the hi-def movie playback is a useful feature as well.
with the 360, the 2 biggest issues are dvd9 and rrod. if ms could make the current hardware more reliable and do something about the limitations of dvd9....then their hardware could be pretty solid for quite a while.

i seem to be in the minority; but, i think the ps3 (in its current state)could be around for a lot longer than 5-6 years.
