Next gen Xbox rumour 2012-11-20 15:41:24 Reply

Apparently there is a rumor that the recently closing Xbox World magazine (more gaming magazines closing? coincidence?) will be revealing the next-gen Xbox in its pen-ultimate issue. In this rumor it is speculating that the console will boast 8gb ram, a quad core processor (similar to a average gaming PC) and blu-ray. The chances that this rumor is un-true is very high but who knows,what do you think to this newgrounders?

I have my doubts that they will fully reveal the console in this magazine. That is what they will do at E3 next year, but they may give us some reliable specs which is enough to hold me over. The rumors make it sound respectable, and I would be content if the console was six times as powerful as the current 360 like some sources claim.

I generally disregard rumours for the most part. Some turn out to be true, most don't. It's better to wait on some solid information before you start getting excited about the next generation of consoles. Still, I can't see them being too far away, especially now that the WiiU has been released.

I imagine the new console is really just going to be a chip they implant in your heart and brain, so Microsoft can literally suck the life out of you.

I heard the 8 GB RAM part is just part of the developer's kit and the retail version will have 4 GB, still double the RAM of the new Wii U.

I doubt that Microsoft will release any major details about the new Xbox in a magazine that's shutting down, and especially before next year's E3. As of now, I don't see them releasing any juicy info about the console in general beyond the specs themselves, and even that can be changed at any time. Simply put, all we can do is wait and see.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

The rumour about the Wii u having screens built into the controller was true, and that sounded ridiculous. This sounds believable.

That doesn't mean that all rumours should be treated as fact, does it?

It doesn't matter because high amounts a RAM don't have that great of an effect on your graphic performance and it nearly all comes from the GPU. Most high end gaming computers don't need more than 4GB of RAM.

Very true, but this sounds more plausible than the usual "10 times more powerful than the PS3" crap we always hear.

Rumor? Next gen consoles are pretty much confirmed the moment their devkits were confirmed. A 2014 release is pretty much expected at this point. Both Sony and microsoft are suppose to say something at 2012's E3.

Consoles are the superior way to play games.

The very first video game ever was a console.

They're going to push it as an "all-in-one" (except for video games) package and remind you that "YOU ARE THE CONTROLLER" with a Kinect 2 either bundled with the console or bundled in a premium package. No thanks.

Sony's done for if they repeat what they did with the PS3: "Five hundred ninety-nine US dollars" and subsequent "no gaems". I don't even think they can afford even a small misstep. I say this because Sony, as a whole, ain't doin' too hot right now. At all.

Nintendo should hope that they get decent third party support and stop releasing "New Super Mario Bros." rehashes. If I hear another "BAH BAH" I swear I'll rant about it in a forum post no one will read. Don't make me do it.

Nintendo's in a pretty interesting predicament, though. They've sort of kind of started the next generation of gaming; with a new console(s) hitting next year - specifications leaps and bounds ahead of WiiU's - they'll need to rely on the age old quote, "Gameplay is more important than graphics". And even then, these consoles will obviously have vastly superior innards, so graphics aren't the only concern. I worry that games will once again be scaled down to be played on a WiiU like what was done with the Wii.

I understand the sacrifice in fidelity and other such things Nintendo had to take with the WiiU. If they had gone all the way, it wouldn't be affordable.

Sony solely owns blue ray, all they'd have to do is sign a contract with them that sais Microsoft gets to use blueray in the new Xbox 360 model, and Microsoft compensates for the royalties

However, seeing that Sony and Microsoft have a good little rivalry going, I doubt that'll happen

I can't wait to see the look on the Nintendo fanboys' faces when they realize that the PS4 and Nextbox's technical specs kick the Wii U's teeth in. I think the next generation of gaming will be a repeat of this one's.

We've known since E3 that the Wii U isn't a powerhouse.

I'm glad Nintendo's doing their own thing; think about how bland gaming would be if Nintendo just decided to be a "me too!"competitor.

They either HAVE to do that, abandon disc all together, or come up with their own kind of disc. The DVDs can't hold many games now and they must use multiple disc.

What difference does that make? I'm mainly a console gamer but I don't see how consoles are superior.
