Xbox 720 Release Date Prediction

There has been massive speculation over the launch date of the next Gen Xbox '720' Codenamed 'Durando' in a recent interview on GameTrailers.com Michael Patcher aired his views on the console release date, saying that he had spoke to both Sony and Microsoft.

His view is that there will be a spring 2014 launch of the next gen console and predicted that Sony will indeed launch first.

There are several rumours regarding this and all information seems to point to the same conclusion. Firstly, Microsoft have to fully develop the Kinect 2, which, whilst being pretty amazing for the Xbox 360, does need some fine tuning as there is a slight lag between the user and the unit. (Microsoft, Next-Gen)

I accidentally clicked disagree lol meant to click agree.

Pach Attack on gt I think is really funny. It's his opinions based on Market trends and he does it in a funny way yet people hate on him cause he can't predict the future. People have such high standards these days

lol....it should have come out in 2010

its going to be in it's 8th year on the market this november

whatever, it's beyond ridiculous now that there are no new consoles.

pc is the only place to game with modern graphics, everything on console looks last gen.

i have games on my ps2 emulator that look better than many ps3/360 games

my iphone has better graphics, the games are kinda mediocre, but at least its not covered in jaggies and running at 20 frames.

Too many exaggerations here, pal (and some bold face lies - to be frank). Games like Uncharted 3 & Gears of War 3 look MILES better than anything to come from the DC/PS2/Xbox/GC era (and that's just a select few).

Anyway, while this prediction seems plausible, I'm not sure Microsoft would let Sony have next holiday all to themselves (and it will be the Wii U's time to really shine). Guess we'll see.

Console hater? that explain's the 1 bubble. Seriously though, Consoles don't have bad graphics really cause have you seen Uncharted or the new God of War? Consoles might not have the best graphics though but they're not that bad.

Pachter sucks, and his predictions are normally wrong.

My guess is that Nintendo Wii U is going to sell like hot cookies if Sony and M$ gives them a full year and half of advanced start.I know that the Wii U will not be on pair with the Durango and PS4 but when people start seeing that the games for the Wii U are actually a leap ahead from the current games from the 360 and PS3,and that multiplatform games will actually have more polished graphic and run at higher resolutions and framerates on the Wii-U, that on the current machines,then Nintendo its the one that will take the throne for certain.And lets not forget that this time Nintendo is going to bet strong on online too.Its Wii all over again,Nintendo starts and the others follow.

Since Wii U will get a year ahead, than people would be buying it and no other console would be able to compete with sales really so by the time PS4 or Durango is out, it would have still sold quite alot.

Shit 02/14/2014 ain't that far off i can hold off on buying a console till then.

Although I am dreaming....I would love to see a new Sony console within a month or so of Wii-U's launch. That would certainly put a spanner in Ninendo's works, if Sony released the PS4 with the obvious blu ray drive, as well as a amped up version of the cell that offered b/c, a nice big a$$ graphics card, & a new slightly re-designed DS3 that allowed usage of our old PS3 controllers as well, & none of this stupid a$$ non-pre-owned compatability.

I'd love to buy a PS4 as early as possible, I think we are definately ready for next gen, & it would also be nice if us early adoptors get a version that is b/c with all past PS console games.

I hope Patcher is right on this one, I am still enoying my PS3 too much, by 2014 I will be ready for the PS4.
