We're excited to announce that we've fully migrated the Xbox Forums to their new home, here on the Microsoft Community forums!
As of today, going to forums.xbox.com will redirect you here to the Xbox area of the Community forums. We've moved all of your existing threads over so you can continue and start conversations with the new forums experience.
We sincerely appreciate the feedback you have provided over this transition and can't wait for you to check out the new Xbox Forums!
Microsoft employees that would know don't really come on here and if they did they wouldn't tell you more than they would tell any other typical person on the forums asking questions about an xbox 720.
any Microsoft employee that tells you anything about the next xbox before the E3 announcement will probably catch hell for it. losing their job is a very real possibility. why would they tell YOU anything?
Most likely an April reveal and retail release in November. As for backward compatibility no one knows. The architecture of the Xbox 720 (x64) is rumoured to be completely different to the Xbox 360 (PPC) so probably not.
There's probably going to be 100's of these threads before Microsoft actually admits and shows X Box 720 or what ever they decide to call it and in that time people might already be making their minds up regards their next purchase ie the PS4. There some
decent games coming out this year any way so are we really interested in what Microsoft does or doesn't announce?
