Not going to lie, if this is true, I'm both pretty damn disappointed and pretty damn excited at the same time. [IF TRUE] Crytek pretty much confirmed that they are working on stuff for the NeXbox. [ELSE] I'm still REALLY looking forward to this new IP.

Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Karooo1757d ago

This means new Xbox next year? I think so :P

Shubhankar1757d ago

I don't think so... maybe an announcement by the end of the year, but that's the farthest it'll go for 2012.

mandf1757d ago (Edited 1757d ago )

Every single electronic product in the past 30 years of business announces a product the year before it releases. Meaning if announced this year it won't be released until the following year. It's called exposure and hype. The next Xbox won't release until 2013 at the earliest possible date. No hoping or praying will change that.

Too the disagreer name a product? I challenge you

MoreRPG1757d ago

it most likely mean that Microsoft will be revealing the next-gen Xbox next year

@ MoreRpg

You could be right. I think it would be a mistake seeing that the 360 is still selling. Unless there is a major drop off in sales it doesn't make sense from a business perspective. Why fracture your user base between 2 systems? That will hurt sales. Developers jump to the next console and don't look back. They have a hard enough time making three games for consoles. Making four just isn't cost effective. The 360 will become a lame duck. The only reason the Ps2 kept selling is because their first party studios kept making games for it. If I was Ms, I would wait for a substantial sales drop then move on. They are making money now. Too come out with a new system means they are going to lose money until they get a good user base for the new system.

Sweeet......
Launch game for 720 confirmed..

I'd love to play Ryse, but I absolutely love the fact that Crytek is going to both have way more development time and also next gen assets.

My predition since early in the year is coming to fruition..Xbox 720 announced at E3 2012 and 720 arriving in the fall of 2013.

Life is good

That comment is so full of fail I don't know where to begin.

@Shubhankar XBOX 360 had a build up at the start of the year using an ARG called mycolony, which led to a televised unveiling full of celebrities, and the console itself was released by the christmas. Build up, Tease, announcement , release, all in 2005.

We're already a year overdue for a new console going off industry trends, but we'll put that down to the economy at the moment. Earliest we'll see a new console in my opinion is xmas 2012, latest will be end of 2013 early 2014. But I'm almost certain they'll be announced at e3, if not then things are looking grim as yet another year will have to go by of consoles holding back advancements in game design, its crazy what some of the new cards are capable of yet nobody's utilizing them on pc because they also have to design their games around consoles to ensure a profit.

The sooner newer consoles come out the better it will be for gamers everywhere, regardless if they're biased to one console over another. But I don't see nex gen consoles having 3 gb gpu's sadly :( 2gb maybe, but i have a feeling the economy will also effecct the graphical leap, we'll be seeing 1gb gpu's in nex gen consoles, would be financially unadvisable to put in a graphics card that as a stand alone costs between 600-800 euro.

Skip_Bayless1757d ago

If they have just recently moved Ryse Nexbox, the game won't come out until late 2013. This doesn't really indicate how early the Nexbox is going to launch. Nexbox is a day 1 purchase for me even at $600.

Challenge accepted. Xbox 360.

The Xbox 360 was officially announced on May 12, 2005. It hit shelves On November 22, 2005. Much less than a year.

Unless you're speaking about non-official hype, but that has clearly already begun.

In short you're...

@mandf - The first iPhone was unveiled by Steve Jobs, then CEO of Apple, on January 9, 2007, and released on June 29, 2007.

milohighclub1757d ago

iPhone 4s was released like 2 weeks after announcement.

Fishy Fingers1757d ago

If that's the case (I'd still take it with a pinch of salt for now) I wonder if it's the hardware or more specifically, a next-gen Kinect that they need/want.

Because lets be honest, the current Kinect just isn't responsive and accurate enough for any real grand AAA expectations.

Micro_Sony1757d ago

No matter what you may think Dance Central 1 and 2 are both AAA.

Also do you have a deveopers kit or are you a deveoper? Kinect can be very responsive depending on how much time and effort the developers outs into it.

The developers for Kun-Fu Live are reprograming the game for Kinect and they said that were amazed by the tech and acurracy.

Tachyon_Nova1757d ago

Ridiculously smart move by Crytek. The benefit that Epic Games's engine business got from their parternship with MS on Gears of War was both obvious and huge. They are obviously trying to reap the same benefit from Xbox 3 for themselves.

Also this is interesting for a number or reasons. 1, it all but proves that the next Xbox will have a Kinect like device. 2, Suggests 2012 release of the next Xbox. 3, shows that Crytek are getting into tablet games as well.

from the beach1757d ago

I like your thinking.

It would be a bit disappointing not to play Ryse on 360 next year, but it would also make for a very tempting launch title on the next gen system.

EVILDEAD3601757d ago

It does NOT suggest a 2012 release of the next Xbox. It suggests a 2012 announcement of the next Xbox and it suggests that Ryse will be a launch game.

Dlacy13g1757d ago

Agreed. I don't think there is a snow balls chance in hell we see a next xbox in 2012, but I do think we get the announcement of the next box coming in 2013. Ryse will 100% be a launch title. It will be hardcore Kinect to kick off the next box which will all come with Kinect. I actually am now more excited for Ryse as I think it will benefit 100% from going on the next system. I was a bit afraid for Ryse after my time with Rise of Nightmares...this gives me hope for the game now.

EVILDEAD3601757d ago

LOL..I don't think in a million years that Crytek would have resorted to Sega's House of Dead' campy type Rise of Nightmares experience for Ryse.

But the extra development time even in the range of an extra year to two years is definately going to be benificial to the game and to gamers.

We are playing the 3rd Gears 5 years later all on the strength of it's incredible debut on the 360. Ryse could be franchise status if it can have that kind of impact on a revised Kinect.

Mrmagnumman3571757d ago

Good, crytek will get to flex their muscle again. Me and the rest of the modding community had to mod crysis 2 up to pc standards, eventually after adding high res textures, new tod, better shadows, DOF, parrallax occlusion mapping, tessalation and DX 11, crysis 2 looks amazing.

NYC_Gamer1757d ago

the next gen era of kinect should much better spec wise
