No Used Games on Xbox 720

No Used Games on Xbox 720
Published by: X_Splinter on Friday, January 18, 2013
Tagged: Gaming, Xbox 360, Xbox Live, Xbox One,

There is rumor that Xbox 3 may limit exactly what kind of games you're allowed to play. According to sources speaking to Kotaku, the Xbox 360's successor will have some kind of anti-used-game enforcement. There's no explanation of what that means, but speculation surrounding the issue says the console could outright reject used-games altogether.


Online passes are a recent staple in staving off used sales. Limiting what used buyers can access is a protective measure for publishers, much to the chagrin of parts of the gaming community. Chris Kohler of Wired argues that the death of used games is inevitable, and passes are the first step toward something exactly like a native anti-used game something integrated into consoles. He notes, of course, that digital is the future of buying games, but in the meantime we may be looking at "an interim period in which the disc as a delivery method is still around but...becomes more like a PC game, which are sold with one-time-use keys that grant one owner a license to play the game on his machine."

'Oban', 'Kryptos' and 'Thebes' - the latest PS4 and Xbox 720 rumours

'Oban', 'Kryptos' and 'Thebes' - the latest PS4 and Xbox 720 rumours
Published by: forahobby on Tuesday, December 11, 2012
Tagged: Gaming, Hardware, Xbox One,

VG247 has rounded up the latest batch of rumours that suggest new codenames for the mysterious hardware duo.

New reports have reaffirmed previous claims that Microsoft’s console will run on an AMD chip going under the codename of ‘Oban’ that was scheduled to go into mass production at the end of this year. However, component quality concerns have reportedly lead to a delay to the schedule.

It also adds that the current codename for the hardware is ‘Kryptos’, replacing the previously rumoured ‘Durango’.

Indeed, it’s not the first time we’ve heard of Xbox 720 production worries, with a report in September claiming that Oban yields were “worse than painfully low” and a possible delay from the then rumoured September 2013 launch.

As for PS4, its internal codename is said to be ‘Thebes’ with AMD also providing the key components. Global Foundries or IBM are set to become the likely manufacturer, with a release supposedly set for 2014.

Xbox 720 DURANGO DEV Kits Revealed

Xbox 720 DURANGO DEV Kits Revealed
Published by: khris1972 on Monday, July 30, 2012
Tagged: Gaming, Hardware, Xbox Live, Xbox One,

New information has come to light this week on the XBOX 720 developer kits codenamed "durango".

The development kit is described as "an anonymous-looking black box" that has many parts in common with standard gaming PCs".

It's placeholder dashboard contains the name Durango, a word that has long been rumored as Microsoft’s codename for the next Xbox.

The dashboard’s two options are D3D11Game1 and NuiView, described as "a simple tool for rendering camera views and data from an attached kinect peripheral."

Kinect functionality is a logical inclusion for the dev kit, as upgraded kinect features have been heavily rumored.

Recent rumored job listings for the next gen console are as of now:
  • Halo 5
  • Skype integration
  • Deus ex 4
  • Just Cause 3
  • Enhanced 3D capabilities
There are Reports that the most recent round of development kits were sent out in February, with Intel CPUs and an NVIDA graphics card. The kits sport 8GB of RAM (though other sources say 12GB) and have a 64-bit operating system.

Microsoft Xbox 720 to feature in-game Skype integration

Microsoft Xbox 720 to feature in-game Skype integration
Published by: forahobby on Tuesday, May 29, 2012
Tagged: Gaming, Hardware, Xbox 360, Xbox One,

Job postings on Microsoft's careers site indicate that the company is working on bringing Skype to the Xbox platform.

One particular job posting at Microsoft this week hints at the future of Skype's integration into the Xbox. Microsoft says it is "focused on enabling amazing new in-game and in-console voice and video experiences for the next generation of Xbox," indicating that the type of Skype functionality on the company's next Xbox hardware could go deeper than a separated app. It's not clear from the job posting whether existing Xbox 360 consoles will receive this type of Skype integration as the listing notes "it is time-critical given the hardware lead times involved."

Since buying Skype for $8.5 billion last year, Microsoft has expressed plans to integrate Skype into Windows Phone and its other services, and just this week we saw job listings for development of a Skype web app. Of course, the Xbox 360 has its own options for video chat via Kinect or the Live Vision camera, but Skype integration would certainly be welcome — the PSP comes with a Skype client built into its OS as standard, so it wouldn't exactly be unprecedented, either.

The first Xbox 720 (Durango) devkits have already reached a select number of developers and are rumored to feature a "monster" 16-core IBM PowerPC CPU, a GPU comparable to the AMD Radeon HD 7000-series, and a Blu-ray drive.

mmmm.. tasty!

Xbox 720 release date slated for November 2013?

Xbox 720 release date slated for November 2013?
Published by: forahobby on Wednesday, May 23, 2012
Tagged: Gaming, Hardware, Live Arcade, Live Marketplace, Xbox Live, Xbox One,

Recent comments from Bungie point towards a Christmas 2013 release for Microsoft's next-gen console.


It looks like the Xbox 720 won't be hitting shelves until 2013, at least if Halo developers Bungie are to be believed. The masterminds behind Master Chief are working on a brand new game called Destiny – which is set to be launched on both the Xbox 360 and Microsoft's next-gen console the Xbox 720 (codename Durango) in 2013. That plays into earlier reports that the Xbox 720 will be released at some point in 2013 – most likely around the November mark in time for the Christmas period.

Spotted by the LA Times in a developer contract, Destiny will be a Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) sci-fi first person shooter, with four titles planned for the series. A Halo/World of Warcraft mashup perhaps?

A PlayStation port of the first title is also being considered in 2014, a year after its release on the Xbox 360 and Xbox 720.

It's still far too early to tell what Bungie is going to spring on gamers itching to wrap their trigger fingers around an Xbox 720 controller – but we expect great things from the creators of Halo, so stay tuned.
