NowGamer: Halo Creative Director Frank O'Connor says there's much more to come from the Xbox 360
You mean for the whole year left until a new Xbox comes out? Pft.
I think he means in term of sales, rather than tech, Although they never really can say that otherwise gamers tend to start asking for next gen. The tech which can be pulled off on the current gen of consoles is peaking VERY rapidly though, But I wouldn't get too excited about a new xbox within a year. Too many planned 360 releases through early and late 2012. 2013 seems to be the year that is more plausible as everyone is currently avoiding 2013 releases
It appears neither one of you read the article, judging by your "way off the mark" comments. Besides, I rather here it from debs than a bunch happy go lucky gamers.
Surely as soon as the new Xbox is announced everyone will switch that. Devs always want to work on the latest hardware. Unless 360 is here to stay for a few more years yet.
ofcourse they will, unless microsoft does something really stupid lol.
John cena Sorry couldnt resist LOL
Years? I thought MS was revealing the Xbox 720 at E3 2012?
almost sure that thats what the analysts are saying, dont think there has been confirmed reveal year for it yet from ms themselves...but who knows, i just go with "when it comes, it comes"
they are but its supposed to be a surprise do you really expect him to say anything now ? that will send 360 sales crashing down. the plan on supporting 360 even after they release the nextbox(720 as you call it) By the way I'm sure the 360 is close its technical zenith with crysis 2, RAGE, forza 4, gears 3 and probably battlefield 3(although no 360 footage has been shown) and assassins creed revelations(telling by the looks of the e3 gameplay) looks like ms is ditching Epic for crytek next gen should be good though because crytek does have potential; farcry 1 was astonishing when it came out and so where crysis 1 and crysis warhead but crysis 2 wasn't as impressive as cryteks previous titles because of the drastically reduced scale and environmental interaction. crysis 2 on extreme(without the directx 11 patch) looks better than crysis 1 without mods though.
Whats stopping them from doing that? Why cant MS have 2 consoles on the market and still have developers support both. Yes the original Xbox was discontinued but the 360 has a much bigger fanbase so need for MS to kill it. What they can do is keep the 360 with majority of the Kinect games and casual games and the 720 for the hardcore.
lol years to come uh? I don't know about that, then again it does sound like they are going back to supporting PC gaming.
Even if a new Xbox does come out soon, there'll still be games being made for the 360. Personally I don't think there will be a new one soon anyway.
Like I said, Halo 4 will probably be the 360's final encore - I'm sure it'll be a brilliant send off and I can't wait for the beta. ^_^
After seeing Forza4 and Gears 3 it looks like there is still more that can come out the console. MS have always said there is more power to be used in the 360 than we see at the moment and Gears 3 and Forza 3 are proving this. MS needs its 1st party developers to show the 3rd party what the 360 can do. I still see them releasing a new console in 2013-2014 as at this moment in time MS and sony dont need to make the jump to the next console.
Ah well, I recently pushed my 360 about 5 inches to the right to make room for another row of games, but I'm afraid it will be mostly for new PS3 games. Another good year and I'm afraid my 360 has to go down a shelve, accompanying my PS2 and other great machines from the past. However, the topshelve is empty now, awaiting the arrival of next gen, and if the hardware is allright the new xBox will probably be there first with all the space for itself, untill the PS4 shows up.
if they do then ,......... JUMP OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!
my wish list for for the xbox 3 or whatever its called: -Left 4 Dead 4 - xbox 3 ///I say l4d4 because i still want l4d3 on 360 ^_^ Halo 5 - xbox 3 Bioshock 3 - xbox 3 fable 4 - xbox 3 GTA IV - xbox 3 Whole slew of original ip's - xbox 3 :D hopefully l4d 4 & halo 5 on launch . I can dream can't I?? lmao
