View author's profile

Microsoft has confirmed that the next Xbox will be revealed in May as rumoured earlier in the month, heralding "the beginning of a new generation of games, TV and entertainment."

A special press event will be held on Microsoft's Xbox campus, which you'll be able to watch via a live global stream that will be available to view on Xbox.com, Xbox LIVE and on Spike TV for people in US and Canada.

At E3 2013 just under three weeks after the reveal, Microsoft will then be showcasing its full games line-up for the next Xbox.

The next Xbox reveal entitled 'A New Generation Revealed' will take place on Tuesday, May 21st at 1pm ET/10am PT/6pm GMT.

And I still think that they aren't going to lock you out of local play if you have an online connection. I imagine the "always on" requirement will be for specific features that are obviously tied to connectivity, no different than your cable box.

If any of the previous rumors are true (no backwards compatibility, always-on connection, etc.) I'm not going to buy it. Even if it doesn't require an always-on connection, I'm still not going to buy it right away. I tend to give a console a year or two to blow some steam before I commit to a purchase.

Let's check the things that will make me buy a PS4 instead a new xbox...

- Always online
- Little list of exclusives
- A lot of kinect crap
- A lot of app crap
- A lot of movies, series e music crap
- A little space for gaming and gamers

Yeah... the new xbox will be a real blockbuster!

I'm so sick of all the media on the 360 that I don't have high hopes for this. As a gamer I want a console to play games, not to watch TV, or movies, or to listen music. Microsoft forgot what gamers really want and we don't need to wait until May 21st to know that they will try to fill our minds with more Netflix, Xbox Music and Kinect crap.

@35

They have to have BC with XBLA and games on-demand. MS patents indicate this is the case. X360A doesn't report on this because NeoGAF has pushed it under the rug so no on notices. That's the problem when all your news comes from a forum which is heavily biased toward Sony.

Anyway, MS will no doubt be more controlling with their online and such than Sony. They let all these rumors fly so that when they announce the bad, it's a relief instead of a nasty surprise and you can focus on all the good you didn't expect in other ways.

I am ready for a new generation of gaming and entertainment. Frankly, going more of the entertainment route makes sense as I witness on a nightly basis more and more of my friends watching either Netflix, Hulu, UFC, Amazon, or any one of the many video apps they have now for the 360.

Microsoft has billions of dollars and they're in this business to make more billions and there's nothing wrong with that. However, the consumers, you and me, will answer with our wallets whether the direction that MS is going for the foreseeable future is worth it. That's the only way to tell them "Yes" or "No" in regards to appealing to the masses of potential customers.

If this was going to be a games console I would be really excited. Unfortunately it is just an entertainment hub for all the apps and subscription services Microsoft can throw at you whilst monitoring everything you do whilst being always online. Will definitely be giving this a wide berth as I only want to play games on it and don't want any of the other crap.

MS Reveal really cant be as bad as sonys, anyone thats even considered buying a ps4 after their less than mediocre not actually showing/confirming anything based on all these rumours is mad.

If MS does screw up, we might as well wait for Peter Molyneux to do a console...

I'm sure there will be games I want a ps4 for and the xbox for. May just call it quits though and go back to retro gaming. Fed up of x sequels of games that don't really need them. Digs out something random part 3 to play.

For me to buy this next Xbox, it has to:
play all my Xbox Live Games
play all my Xbox retail Games
keep my gamerscore
no red rings of death
if they do this, I'm on board..if not then I'm done gaming!

Hope they bring out Killer Instinct and Final Fantasy 7..those 2 games will make me buy the system hands down..

I don't care what anyone says about Microsofts dream of an entertainment console. I'm buying it anyway and I love that my Xbox does more than play games. I use my Xbox for games, music, films, tv shows, some light internet browsing, chatting with friends both voice, text and video calling. I use nearly every type of feature the Xbox offers and I sure as hell hope the next one does it all too.
Of course throwing some more money into games would be nice Microsoft. Oh and a backwards compatible console. Don't care if it is always online or not. I only play when I can connect to Live(girlfriend doesn't exactly live close so an internet connection is a must if we wanna shoot zombies and shit together).

I have a friend who works for MS, and I mentioned the "always-on" connection, and he says that plan has been scrapped. MS is well aware of all the backlash, regarding the need for an always-on connection... and because of the "millions" of protests over it, now it won't happen (thank God)!

Gamerscore WILL carry-over, NO BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY for 360 games (or older, of course). Xbox 360 consoles will continue to be made for one year after release of next-gen console - longer, if sales maintain.

For everyone who is wanting it to have backwards capability, it will most likely not happen if they are going to be using Blue-Ray Technology with the New Console. it's impossible for a Console that doesn't run on Blue-Ray which would be the 360, and the games therefore are not "Blue-Ray either" so that's why it will be impossible for it to work IF they even decide to use Blue-Ray with the New Console. which I don't see why they wouldn't because you can do a lot more with Blue-Ray disk, they hold a lot more information.

So i'm afraid for those who want that option, keep your Xbox 360, or buy the other new Console they are making which is code named "Sting-Ray" for $99.99

I'd like backwards compat. but lets face it, PS4 isn't doing it either. I'd settle for a good virtual store of cheap past titles. Like Playstation and Nintendo do now. Not the overpriced crap for 1200MSP-$20 USD like microsoft does now for Xbox originals or full price the like arcade games or on demand titles. And let us play em in a party if we want for Christ sakes. But for me the biggest thing determining whether I get one of these at luanch alongside the PS4 is that online DMR crap. Online DMR and its a no go Micro$oft.

I'm sure I'll get voted down, but I'm just as excited for the entertainment as the games. I like only having one box under my tv. Backwards compatibility is a must though, add on or inclusive I don't care but BC is non-negotiable, I don't care what PS4 is doing. I'll buy a Wii U first if neither Sony nor MS get this right.

@63 I also have a friend who works for MS and he said that the new Xbox will be able to grill steaks and burgers, clean your house, make you Long Island Iced Teas, wipe your ass, prevent tooth decay, take your dog for a walk, and it will have a built in back and ball sack scratcher. Also it will disperse B12 vitamins and have a built in Red Bull faucet for those long watching video sessions.

@3 Are you a moron? They're making backwards compatibility chips, and according to a source from Microsoft there is no "always online" go suck on the teat of Sony, which the PS4 isn't backwards compatible.

Also, "Xbox Infinity".

To everyone complaining and spouting that you're going to get the PS4 instead; we get it, you're jumping ship and buying a PS4. So move on to PS3Trophies and tell them about it because those of us who are still getting the next Xbox are tired of hearing about it.

All I want from the next Xbox is for it to be a more powerful version of what the 360 originally was, with a better disc format, and more big exclusives.

I don't want Kinect, I don't care about TV/Movie/Music streaming, I'm sick of only having FableForzaGearsHalo. I want a TRADITIONAL GAMES CONSOLE not a media device, I can play all that other media on my PC, TV, Phone, I don't need yet another device that does it, I want something that focuses on gaming. If Micosoft are able offer that, without having to resort to Kinect-like crap then I'll look into buying the next Xbox, but if they continue the route they seem to be heading and focus on every BUT gaming, outside of those 4 franchise's, then I'm likely to go back to Sony next gen.

Also before anyone says anything, i'm not necessarily against having the option to use the consoles for other media, I simply wish for Microsoft to stop making it there main focus point for both the 360 and there next console, as I said I can do those thing on other devices, when I buy a games console, I'm mainly planning on using it for gaming, and think they too should focus on that, or stop calling it a games console.

What they need to offer to motivate me to buy it :

- No "always connected" requirements.

- At least partial backwards compatibility. I would prefer a full one (so with the retails games on disc, as I have more than hundred of retail games) but I want, at least, to be able to get back the more than hundred XBLA games I bought and to not have to switch to the 360 each time I want to play to one of those games.

Would be enough for me, but I don't think they'll do it.

If not, I'll just buy another PC and put it under my TV with a 360 controller and problem solved. The only exclusives games Microsoft have don't interest me at all (Forza & Gears of War) nor Sony's ones does (the only one I was still interested in was Yakuza and the series is now over, and Metal Gear is not an exclusive games anymore, the next one is also planned for PC).

Not to mention that now, most of the games are also released on PC.

"IF" you have a friend who works for MS - and "IF" he actually knew anything... you would confirm what I passed along, and not make a bunch or smart-aleck remarks (which would be typical of a child or retard who likes to be argumentative)!

There's OBVIOUSLY no truth in what you've said, but what I've said will be apparent when the next console launches! Now go wipe your own ass, since nothing else will do it for you!!!

This is a list of things which decides whether or not i switch to PS4.

No always online
Allow backwards compatibility
Allow used games
No subscription fee (Microsoft can't expect to get away with it anymore unless they add some BIG features Sony doesn't have)
I would prefer if they let me keep my gamer score too.
Don't be overpriced as hell.

Knowing Microsoft though, they will probably be money whores and do something terrible, i have little hope in Microsoft these days.

@5 What if they actually call it the 720?

Personally, as much as I'd like to get it, even with all the controversy, I'll probably wait until it's been out a while and they've worked the bugs out and lowered the price. Or maybe I'll lose all self-control and buy it right away.

I am curious how they'll handle gamercards being transferred back and forth from old to new. Plus, how they'll handle multiplayer games if some people are on the old and some on the new. Most games it might not affect, but I read that BF4 will have 24v24 for the new Xbox, but the 360 will keep 12v12. Can new owners play with people on the 360 if they drop to 12v12? We'll see, I guess.

@99 There is no chance of console crossover gaming. 360 players will play with 360 players. New xbox will play with new xbox players. And there will not be backwards compatibility, they will have you purchase and download "classic" titles.

@17 You're absolutely right. This whole press conference will contain attempts at convincing us that buying an Xbox is more efficient than owning a computer, phone, Bluray player, music service, cable service, toaster, refrigerator, clock etc.. Rather than focus on what originally got them to where they are which was the games. I never had a chance to own the original Xbox but I did use it and play on it with friends at the time, I miss the good old days, Games and then the introduction of the Arcade Marketplace, such simple days long gone..

Still concerned as to why they had to delay the original unveiling, and the fact that there are still a lot of nasty rumors flying around I don't like the sound of.

Giving MS the benefit of the doubt here, but I'm going in with rather low expectations at this point

I cant get over all the people saying "If it's not backwards compatible, I'm buying a PS4!". You people do realize that Sony already announced that PS4 wont be backwards compatible, right? These comments are so full of fail that someone even thinks that DVDs dont work in a Blu-Ray player.

OT: I for one will be buying the new Xbox either way, just like a majority of the posters here will even though they say otherwise. As for it being an "entertainment console" and not a gaming system, I have no problems as long as they offer the hardcore gamers something to sink their teeth into. I also wouldn't mind a few more console exclusive series and support for more players in MP games (64v64 or at least 32v32 Battlefield games please)!

If it's 2 to 3 times the price of the Wii U, I will wait a year or two to buy it. If it has always online for more than just backwards compatibility, doesn't allow 2nd hand or borrowing of friends games and has always on kinect, then I won't buy.
In fact, I would prefer that they have two different models for sale - one with kinect, and a cheaper one without it so those who will never use it don't have to waste money on its needless purchase.

Why are all you morons saying, "I'm going to go PS4 if there is no backwards capability" - well neither does PS4 so you won't actually be protesting against anything you morons.

The new xbox is going to be great. It's going to be just like the 360 but better and the ps4 will be just like the ps3 but better.

Just because there are all these apps and things doesn't mean that its not going to be a good console. Have you seen the Playstation menu? It's God awful. I for one, after owning a PS3, am never going to go back to Playstation and if you all make the mistake of going there - then I'm sure I will see you all back on this website and back on the xbox live in a year or two...

What I DO care about are these always online rumors and I hope Microsoft comfronts this issue on May 21st and says it won't happen.
And to all these people using the so called "Your a Kid" insult, I'm a fucking grown man, I work for a living, I can afford a PS4 or a PC and to be honest, I think I am going to purchase a gamming PC.

I love the moronic trolls who keep saying that the PS4 is better...Based on what? They showed almost nothing about it except for in-game cutscenes, and some games that are not really new. Oh wait I forgot, you can let someone else play a level for you if you can't beat it. What a useful feature, I've always wanted to watch someone else play MY game for me.

No pricing, no pictures, no line-up, no backwards-compatibility with PS3 or even PSN purchases, and yet it's better than a system that hasn't even been released yet? *sigh*

This thread has boiled my piss!

1. If the 360 is always-on, the PS4 probably will be too
2. Keep your 360 for your 360 games
3. If you don't need media functionality, don't use it
4. Integrated Kinect, why is that a bad thing? Don't use it if you don't want to

I don't like the used game block, but ultimately that's down to the publishers not Microsoft, and certainly if they enforce that then it'll be on all consoles

You had me at games. But lost me at TV and entertainment.

No sale if always on DRM is still happening.

I'll buy one a year or two after it's released and can get it dirt cheap USED. Yeah, stick that up your ass M$ and your anti-used policy. I remember the days, in fact like ten years ago, that I could go into a store and buy four or five used PC games for like five bucks and nobody complained about their profits. QQ we only made 220 million freaking dollars on Halo 4 sales... on launch day.

"the beginning of a new generation of games, TV and entertainment" - Seriously? A "GAMING" system should maybe, I think, focus on... Oh, I don't know, games? I bought an SNES specifically to play Zelda: A Link To The Past and Donkey Kong Country, you think I gave a fuck that it didn't play a cassette or let me watch Power Rangers? To ruin the suspense: No.

I also don't see the point of having it always connected to the internet. You just killed the hopes and dreams of kids everywhere who's parents don't want them on the internet - you know who you are. As an adult, if the Xbox is truly a "beginning of a new generation of entertainment" then I should be able to disconnect and watch the porn I downloaded without getting interrupted by "CockBlocker2 has come online".

@155 that is if Thief even comes out now, the studio has apparently been hit with problems and now the games release is in question. I am not happy about the news I really want a new Thief!

Would anyone be disappointed if after all the rumours about names for the next gen console, they just dropped everything and simply called it 'Xbox' ?

In my humble opinion...
I really think that Microsoft has positioned themselves perfectly to potentially hurt the Sony PS4 sales, maybe even significantly... IF (that's a VERY big if)... the new Xbox:
1. has backwards compatibility
2. does NOT require an always-on internet connection
3. and still allows us to play used/borrowed games (at least the Single-Player campaign).

Also, it probably wouldn't hurt if they decided not to waste a lot of space on Apps and Social Networking that have nothing to do with GAMING. Let us (the users) choose what we want to use, then download ONLY those apps we want.

I'm actually curious about their decision to move even more in the direction of general entertainment, apps and television, instead of focusing on gaming.

Did they actually do long-term surveys? Or just following the general trend? But what trend, actually?
My observation is that all that "extreme mobiling" and "app-mania", the omnipresence of peripheral devices like tablets for example (which i think wont be present on the market anymore in 4 years), has already passed its climax.

A lot of people I know, including me, are satiated by all-rounder-gadgets that can do an-oh-wonder-amount of things, but excel at none.

I personally feel an anti-trend, especially among us gamers, that thwarts what the mainstream media still propagates.
