Will Next Generation Be Rife With Console Wars?

Will Next Generation Be Rife With Console Wars?
Published by: khris1972 on Sunday, January 20, 2013
Tagged: Gaming, Xbox 360, Xbox One,

Arguing over which console is better has been a habit of gamers since the start of console gaming itself.


There are plenty of elements at play, from a machine’s power to its exclusive games. This generation was no exception, with the PS3, XBOX360, and PC fanbase arguing about which is better even now, as we move into the next generation. Each machine has its own niche, so of course there is no clear winner in the ‘war’—but that doesn’t make those arguments futile. Since competition is the main driving factor of the games economy, systems which have clear differences and unique advantages mean a generation is likely to be successful overall. With the leak of rumored specs for Microsoft’s codenamed ‘Durango’ and Sony’s codenamed ‘Orbis,’ we can see this trend continuing in the next generation.

Microsoft Hardware Open House Hosting Event on January 24th

Will they showcase the new Xbox 720?


The 720 is not mentioned in the program details but maybe just maybe it would be a great time to show some much anticipated details about the upcoming console to those in attendance.

"Please join us for an exclusive open house on January 24th in the new Microsoft Technology Center in our Silicon Valley Campus in Mountain View. We will be showcasing some exciting devices, including the Xbox 360, Kinect, Surface, Windows 8 on an 82” touchscreen from Perceptive Pixel, and our newly launched SmartGlass application. We’ll have leading engineers from our hardware, manufacturing, and software teams on-hand to speak about what Microsoft has in store for the future."

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
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.
