In the article he never says "he doubts Xbox 720 will turn everything we know about videogame consoles upside down" it's a twisting of words that is very misleading.

I'll suggest using any title you want but you should acknowledge that "helghan belongs to the helghast"

honkyjesus2297d ago

You're on the Internet, congrats.

dirigiblebill2297d ago

All paraphrase is "twisting words". What does the intro as it stands lead you to believe, exactly?

GribbleGrunger2297d ago

paraphrasing isn't 'twisting words'. paraphrasing is using a different way of saying the 'same thing'. that's not 'twisting words'.

MerkinMax2296d ago

Let me know what the teacher thinks of it.

dirigiblebill2295d ago

But using different words to say precisely the same thing is impossible. What you say is how you say it.

callahan092297d ago

ElementX, are you critiquing the article or the submission? Because as far as the submission goes, it's correct and falls within the rules at N4G. He copied and pasted the intro from the actual article as the N4G submission intro.

ElementX2297d ago (Edited 2297d ago )

The article itself is shoddy

Biggest2297d ago

What is the point of the statement anyway? Who thought the next version of ANY console was going to change anything? They'll get better. That's pretty much all there is to expect. Unless we are talking about Steven Colbert's new Xbox idea...

I totally agree,, hrs talking out of his aa never acknowledges of having the 720 dev kits.

DeadlyFire2297d ago (Edited 2297d ago )

Well Xbox 360 has 3 cores and 6 threads. Xbox 720 will have 6 cores and up to 24 threads on Power7 + some type of Mid or High End GPU setup. Not vastly different, but will have a bit of a shift that will be visible.

jmac532297d ago

Oh because you know what the 720 specs are.

limewax2297d ago (Edited 2297d ago )

Actually it's just a matter of piecing together the puzzle if you know a decent amount about tech.

So to start, Wii-U as been mentioned many times to be using Power7, Something IGN took into account when building their own Wii-U from the specs developers had mentioned.

This leaves MS/Sony with a choice of matching the Power7 or stepping up to a Power8, While Power8 is a possibility its also unlikely since keeping the launch price down is going to be a priority, The worlds economic state makes this a given.

Then for GPU, it has been said by a few sources now that both Sony and MS will be going to AMD (Pity, I wanted PhysX) and sources have also started to surface about which GPU will be the choice of which system. With the new GPU's of this year rolling out now, we get a good grasp of what is likely to appear. Now for instance we will not be getting a top of the line card in either system if AMD is their choice. The operating temperatures of their top of the line models are extremely high, And require a lot of cooling, Something consoles can't really offer. So they will be picking something with a good balance of power/temperature and even Wattage, all of these are going to be a factor in the choice, It will be a Mid-High range card, certainly not top of the line.

Although my personal suspicion would be that MS will also use the 7 series GPU, As they certainly still have enough spare time to change their mind if Sony do go ahead with the 7 series. However sticking by the 6 series would still provide very close specs while also providing the Nextbox with a slightly lower price point.

This gives you the gist of where things will go, but of course an outsider is not the one calling the shots, so you can only really narrow it down so much

DeadlyFire2296d ago

Well there is Power7(2010), Power7+(2012), and Power8(2013-2014). While Power8 might be more expensive, its cost will be less than $25 bucks for production. Everyone complains about costs, but major factor in PS3 cost was Blu-Ray. They can throw every bit of CPU/GPU tech in a console for less than $600 bucks and sell at a small loss and gain all of that cash back before the generation is over. PS3 cost about 900-1000 bucks for production. Without Blu-Ray it would have cost about $525 bucks similar to X360.

Its not hard to guess the specs. Power7+ is most likely. From what has been rumored. Which is 32nm and Power7. Power7 only exists as 45nm. Power7+ is the 32nm version. Power8 is 22nm.

From what I have read in rumors its alined with 6 core version, but 8 core could easily be in the system with 32 threads and 6 core as a early kit test run. Its also possible that Power8 could be in the system. Its coming in 2013. Would be vastly superior to Power7 tech. Would not represent a great change design/programming side of things. So it would be easy transition from Power7 to Power8.

"If next gen is around the corner pretty soon, then we are hoping the experience that we got at this moment will actually help us in creating the games for other consoles. *****I don't think they'll be so much different.***** I hope they won't be so much different that we have to totally change our controls and stuff like that."

this is what they quoted.

That's why i stopped reading.

Quite a misleading title, I suggest changing it before fanboys from both side rant about it.

vega2752297d ago

that's the reason why the title is like that. Too get fanboys on both sides to rant.

RedDead2297d ago (Edited 2297d ago )

He has to keep the title in accordance with the Rules, OXM are the ones who made that title. Obviously looking for hits.

cynosure2297d ago

Yeah the title is misleading

callahan092297d ago

Did he change the title since or something? Because the title I see is the exact title of the article the submission links to. Not misleading at all. Unless you're critiquing the article rather than the submission.

floetry1012297d ago

Definitely laying it on the article. It's done to spark hits and angry discussion. Nothing new in the gaming world.

dirigiblebill2297d ago

Why is it misleading? Let me know and I'll change it.

360GamerFG2297d ago

Don't change it, it is what it is.

LightofDarkness2297d ago (Edited 2297d ago )

For one, he doesn't say it WON'T be much different, he says he doesn't think it will be. The former implies he's had hands/eyes on the machine or somehow knows anything about it.

It should be something like "CD Projekt Comment On Future Multiplatform Plans" or "CD Projekt's Thoughts On The Next Generation/Xbox 720"

dirigiblebill2295d ago

I accept that "won't" implies something other than "doesn't think it will be", but nor does the headline explicitly claim that CD Projekt has firsthand knowledge of Xbox 720. Not that there's anything here which proves it doesn't.

They're designing multiplatform games for release in 2014/2015 - if they're not designing around known hardware next gen specs, they're being remarkably thick.

Dlacy13g2297d ago

Its pretty disgraceful at just how misleading that title is. Integrity is lost in the new age of "journalism".
