Wii 2? Xbox 720? Those new console rumours in full

Guardian: Are Nintendo and Microsoft about to announce their next generation consoles? The industry certainly seems ready for it. (Next-Gen)

Also, it's not going to be called the Xbox 720! Probably. I could be wrong, but not likely.
-Mezzo-  +   1719d ago
I hope it not & I'm sure they're not that stupid to call it Xbox 720. I wonder how/when everyone started calling it Xbox 720.

Anyone else think 'Xbox 362' would be a good name?

three - sixty - two ?

There can't possibly be a name any worse than Xbox 720.

I'm still not ready for a new console. PS3 has a lot of quality exclusives yet to come and I won't be buying a new console for years. It may be time for Wii 2 & Xbox 720 as Wii needs an upgrade and the 360 has no games but it's way too early for a new console for me.
-Mezzo-  +   1719d ago
It certainly not early for Xbox 720, i think it's about time. And Nintendo needs a Wii2 if it time or not.

Are you serious? The 360 99.9% of the time out performs the PS3. So a new xbox would hurt Sony severely. If a new xbox comes out, Sony better be right on que to do the same or it's lights out.
Theyellowflash30  +   1718d ago
Yeah I agree. For PS3 fans there is no need for a new console yet. The Xbox could use a new console but it doesn't have to yet. While the PS3 has more exclusives the Xbox sales with Kinect are doing really well. 3rd party sales of Xbox 360 games are also doing well so MS could be saying to themselves they dont NEED to announce a new console yet. Plus they still have Gears of War 3 which should also help sales.

For the Wii, I think a new system is imminent. The Wii needs better online, better system functions and features (like achievements), a HDD, HD visuals, a processor boost, better motion control tech than wii motion plus, ect. So Nintendo is in the best position to announce new technology.

The next-generation should be interesting

Next gen xbox is called kinectbox.
Trevonn  +   1718d ago
that works but its VERY GAY!
otacon68  +   1718d ago
That is 360 already...

rumors from people not even in the game industry..........

the next xbox is probably at least 3 years away
Thecraft1989  +   1718d ago
You do realize that would be nearly more than 9 years . The 360 will never live for 9 years. New console is bound to be announced this or next year for sure.

Raven_Nomad is there not new projectors that do use bulbs. Heat wise I agree way to hot my jvc
dla X3 is the only source of heating in the rooms its in.

The Nintendo rumors are crazy stupid, that would be an expensive machine and bulbs burn out rather quickly on projectors, I know I own a HD projector, those things last only around 2000 hours or so. Plus, the heat they generate is really intense, probably not the best thing for a console.

Even though I thought I was about 75% sure Microsoft would mention their next Xbox this year at E3, now I am backing that off to about 25%.

The main reason I changed my mind is because of how well Kinect and the new XBox 360s is selling, I mean it just now had it's best non Holiday month EVER. Which is very, very impressive.

Also, while I'm sure Microsoft wants a year or so head start again on Sony, Sony seems content with their "Future proof PS3" I don't expect anything from them for years to come.

So I think Microsoft announces their next console next year, possibly the year after and Nintendo around the same time, with Sony forced to do the same a year after that.

Xbox 362

This generation should last longer, however it seems the 360 and wii are at their end. Wii with its lacking popularity and 360 with a lack of exclusives and focus of kinect over the system itself.

I do not mean to upset anyone with this however its a personal belief, if you wish to share your opinion with me then feel free to. Try not to just disagree and leave =/

The PS4 should not be coming anytime soon as the PS3 is running strong with support from everywhere. Its not lacking in any but is gaining in popularity and exclusives...
Kos-Mos  +   1718d ago
The Wii still top the charts.
rezzah  +   1718d ago
true, however its not receiving the popularity is once had in the media. i mean I know its kicking ass in sale still however Im starting to see a lack of positive news. Its like Nintendo is trying to figure out whats's the next big thing they should bring out and maybe theyre running out of ideas.

I think they really are trying to focus on a Wii2 because I think soon the Wii is going to lose it's ability to stand out from the 360 and ps3 with motion controls for hardcore and casual.
tdogchristy90  +   1718d ago
I person don't want to see a new xbox or ps until at least 2013. One it's expensive and two I'm just having way to much fun with current hardware. So yeah I can wait at least 2 more years!

how about Xbox -360
notice the negative
vmanj  +   1718d ago
MS will never call is anything down the line of Xbox3 because tht would make it sound inferior to PS4....more than likely they will give it a new name like kinect
DaBadGuy  +   1718d ago
I'm expecting the Wii 2 to be announced anytime now. As for the next Xbox or Playstation, I'd give it a few years.
