I'm interested to see what disc format the new Xbox will have, I doubt they'll stick with dual layer dvd, unless they create they're own format, then it could be Blu-ray.

Lets all show our best surprised face!

MS will have started working on the Xbox 360 successor before they even launched the 360.

Planning/designing new things is a continuous cycle.

I agree.

 

The Xbox performs fine in my opinion apart from the disc format. DVDs just aren't cutting it anymore. Crytek (a high ranking employee) supposedly talked to an online magazine and said they were building Timesplitters 4 currently on the new Xbox and that it was shown off at E3 behind closed doors. They have since denied this completely but we'll see

No later than a 2013 4th quarter release please Microsoft. I'm getting tired of the limitations of the current Xbox.

In fact try to make it a summer 2013 release. Or sooner.

Lol.

Lets not forget, Microsoft will need to give developers prototype hardware, and development tools, at least a year in advance of the console release

They already have.....

 

I'm not surprised they are already looking at the next generation of console. They probably have a rough estimate about the specs, but I doubt they will have decided on it at the moment as the price of components will keep falling.

They also just released Kinect so they would want more people to get it so they get more money to put into the next generation as they need to consider the costs for marketing etc.

Yeah 360 sounds just as daft.

Lets not forget, Microsoft will need to give developers prototype hardware, and development tools, at least a year in advance of the console release Which means they'll have likely worked out the spec 2 years before it releases.

I'd imagine with the 720 being ~2 years away, it will be a fair assumption to say it will be able to compete with todays highest end gaming hardware.

What limitations?  I'm more than happy with how the 360 performs.

 

Forget about a summer release though, it's the wrong season to release a console.  Any time in the four months before Christmas is the best time to release a console.

Hoping they don't name it a 720 as it sounds like bloody skateboard stunt.

[/quote] so does 360 i.e kickflip 360, heelflip 36o etc.
