Microsoft Inadvertently Teasing Major Xbox News At CES 2012

Dual Pixels - Rumors that the next Xbox, 720 or whatever it may be called, have hit the web stating that Microsoft is scheduled to show the new platform at next year's Consumer Electronics Show. There are different theories in the announcement or even the launch of the next generation of home consoles, with most people citing 2013 and beyond. Obviously, Microsoft wouldn't spoil their own surprises but interestingly enough, today they're building anticipation for CES 2012 with their Xbox fans via Facebook.

Makes sense, I mean would they invite Xbox fans to CES 2012 just to see Windows 8, meh.

Anyway I think it's time for the next generation to be announced, unfortunately i don't think Sony is ready to announce the PS4 or will be anytime soon.

That's also what has me worried. I'm afraid that history might repeat itself again...with Sony being late at the market. I hope this doesn't happen though.

With the latest signs that we've been getting, I say Microsoft is gearing up to launch their next gen console. I hope Sony has something up their sleeves as well.

Edit: @JsonHenry -

Almost forgot about that. Thanks! I just have some fear that they might arrive to the market late...at the same time I don't want them to get here early in a rush. I'd rather have them plan out their strategies first.

^^ Sony as well as dev studios have all said that they know of the next Sony home console and Sony Reps have stated themselves being late to the game next generation would be undesirable.

It might not be within Sony's hand to change their own cycle to match MS release cycle.

The high price of the PS3 and the major losses Sony took are going to be hard to convince management to release a new console until the current one has recouped the losses.

That said, releasing early means almost nothing. See what happened to Dreamcast that released a year earlier than PS2.

Xbox 360 didn't gain market share from releasing early, it did it with a better executed business plan and proper market research!

Sony will be ready. These manufactures have been R&D their next systems since 2006. That's what they do. So if Mircosoft does announce the next Xbox at CES then I wouldn't doubt Sony announcing something about PS4 before the end of E3 2012.

nondecaf1702d ago

why wouldn't they be ready to announce a next-gen system,please don't say because of vita because it is comming out in Febuary that gives them ten months to prepare.

Micro_Sony1702d ago

They may hint,speak or mention the next Xbox at CES. but if they truly want to show the world & make everyone go holy shit, i think E3 2012 would be the better venue to show case the next Xbox.

PetitPiPi1702d ago

The future Xbox will be mich more then a gaming system. IMO, CES is the better show for a reveal.

KMCROC541702d ago

Like i said they will probly talk tech & what features can expect, but the grand reveal will most likely be at E3. Thier no way the play thier hand at CES .
