No duh. New consoles usually start development 2-3 years after a console gets released

What did you expect them to start in their 5th year?

The Xbox booth at GDC. Are they really about to announce this thing?

Jin_Sakai77d ago

Patiently waiting. Only 25 years to go!

Hmm. Phil said the Xbox HDMI stick for cloud gaming was in development but they couldn't get it under a certain price point. Likely $99. I wonder if they were able to figure that out now with newer hardware. It would be a smart product to put out, especially if that mobile gaming storefront also launches on it.

@porkchop I don't know given the success of the Samsung intergration I can see smart tv apps being used as a alternative to a HDMI stick.

But realistically the quality doesn't really compete when compared to native rendering in my experience on a gigabit connection streamed to x1 and PC it's fairly heavy with artists and screen tearing I'd be buying consoles until they can improve image quality and response time in cloud streaming.

But even Xbox admit that only a small subset of users will prefer cloud streaming and it's a supplemental service

That's the scruffiest and most unprofessional booth i've seen from a big company in years.

"What did you expect them to start in their 5th year?"

Some people were expecting Xbox to leave the console market rather sooner than later.

I´m glad that those people will be disappointed.

Well..they did buy their way in. If they hadn't..i would expect as soon as 2025

Xbox has money to burn. They will be the last to leave the physical console space.

New consoles Start development after previous (PS5) console is released next following month. Not 2-3 years later who told you that lie??

Like ps6 so is Xbox making a successor I'm not surprised tbh.

Vits77d ago

Well, it might be:

1. The successor to the Xbox Series. That would make some sense, we have a bunch of new tech reaching the consumer market at once. From faster memory to better and more efficient architectures. So starting to think about the successor does make some sense.
2. It's the mid-gen upgrade. Same reason as before, there is new tech available and I doubt manufacturers will drop the idea of a mid-gen renewal. It will be interesting to see how they do that with the Xbox Series S, though.
3. It's the streaming box. We already know that they were working on a cloud-based device and while I don't believe it makes that much sense now with TVs coming with Xbox Cloud pre-installed and the G-Cloud being more or less adopted as the "portable" Xbox. Maybe they were already too far into development to drop it.

ActualEngineer76d ago

My boy ... MS had dropped a 8 billion project along with a buy out/merger of a cellphone company in the past (Nokia). You really think they are too far into something, not to drop it!? For a 2.2 trillion company expected to reach 2.6+ in this year ... a billion is what they wipe their ass with.

Vits76d ago

Yeah, same division, budget and team as well! Incredible insight! Should change your profession to business analysis kiddo.

Ugh. PTSD my friend. I was a major windows phone fanboy. I HATE android. Microsoft bought Nokia and all the quality windows phone handsets immediately died off because Microsoft started making the Lumia handsets instead of Nokia and it is partially what killed the platform. Then they discontinued lumia and windows phone OS. Now I use IOS.

They will have released more consoles in last 3 years than they have released games.

R and D normally starts as soon as the current console is released.

Rude-ro76d ago

R and D for what?
Microsoft just throws in out

RedDevils76d ago

R and B you meant, Research and Buy. Maybe skip the research and just buy lol
