View Full Version : Next-gen Xbox will simply be called "Xbox", with 8GB RAM

The specs tells me it is just like a iPad 4th generation with more RAM, even the naming convention is the same as iPad.

- To be called "Xbox"
- Quad-core (ARM @ 2GHz)
- 8GB RAM
- Kinect 2.0
- Blu-ray
- Euro 299 / $382



The magazine will reportedly use its penultimate issue to reveal details about the next-gen Xbox; the console is said to include Kinect 2.0, Blu-ray discs, and more.

The penultimate issue of Xbox World magazine will reportedly reveal new details about Microsoft's new Xbox console, according to CVG.

The magazine's editor reportedly told the site that the next-generation Xbox will most likely be called "Xbox" instead of "Xbox 720", and will ship with 8GB of RAM and a quad-core processor.

Other details about the new console that will reportedly be revealed by Xbox World include Kinect 2.0, Blu-ray discs, directional audio, a TV output and input, an "innovative" controller, and the possibility of augmented-reality (AR) glasses to be used at a later stage in the new console's life.

Microsoft has not officially confirmed that it is at work on a new console, but speculation about the new Xbox has been circulating for some time. In June, a 56-page document allegedly from Microsoft indicated that the company is planning to launch an Xbox 720 in 2013 at $299. An updated version of the Kinect was to be included, and AR glasses support would be added sometime after launch. The document has since been removed at the behest of Microsoft's legal team.

Wish they'd just follow Sony's lead and keep the current design of the 360's controller going. Aside from the shitty d-pad, it's a very good design.

Ergh... if thats true Microsoft it out to push Sony out of the market and become a big problem for Nintendo. Sony cant compete with that price. Latest rumors posted on the magicbox front page pointed to 400-500 dollars for the PS4.
With that said, they will be taking huge losses with each unit sold at that price.

One thing is given at the start though. If they call it Xbox in Japan again, it will most certainly fail yet again. Why dont they just call it Microsoft Box in there? Thinking about it, its such a terrible name for a console. Everyone called it 360. 360 is a better name than Xbox lol.

Yeah Sony has a similar problem this time around as 4 is the number of death for japanese. Sony beeing a Japanese company is aware of that.

Them calling it just playstation is actually a good idea as its a brand that still has value. The orginal PSOne was a sucess. The original Xbox wasnt, in comparison.

There is nothing in that article that say's what type of CPU they will use, just a quad core.

Didn't Sony create blu-ray? How come they just can't just bank those profits?

$299 sounds like Xbox 360 2.0, but I guess we've gotten pretty far graphically unless they're doing CGI quality graphics next gen.

There's a group of 19 companies that own blu-ray now with the Blu-ray Disc Association, Sony is just one of those 19.

The current 19 board members (as of June 2009) are:

Apple Inc.
Dell Inc.
Hewlett-Packard
Hitachi, Ltd.
Intel Corporation
LG Electronics
Mitsubishi Electric
Panasonic Corporation
Pioneer Corporation
Royal Philips Electronics
Samsung Electronics
Sharp Corporation
Sony Corporation
Sun Microsystems
TDK Corporation
Technicolor SA
20th Century Fox
Walt Disney Motion Pictures Group
Warner Bros. Entertainment

And considering Sony Laptops use Windows, I guess that makes it even?

In my opinion, company should use flash-based media for the game medium. It cost less now (as far as I can see ; I could be wrong though), less-loading, and heat resistant.

Disc can be still fit for other purpose like movie.

Whether the report is right or not,t here will probably be multiple pricing tiers with the next Xbox, just as there are with the Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii U. So the $300 version will probably be the cheap one, with a superior $400 version on offer.

Rubeus
11-20-2012, 03:38 AM
I guess the price supposed to be Euro 299 or $382 because the source is CVG. I misread the CVG page, the processor is quad core, but that "leaked" 56 page document from a while ago said it would be a 2GHz multi-core ARM processor similar to the ones used in smartphone/tablet.

I think it makes sense for PS4 to simply called Playstation, if they are going to follow the "trend", but does that mean Nintendo would call their next console Nintendo Entertainment System?

No kidding. I really hope they don't do that. It'd be like naming the Dreamcast the Genesis instead. Or calling the Wii the N64. Regardless, I'm still pretty excited about the console. I only hope for a few things:

-Don't go overboard on the Kinect nonsense. More people dislike it than like it. Keep it niche where it belongs. Stop trying to force it on us.
-Don't have a cluttered dashboard/home screen. Windows 8 works great on a touch screen but people likely won't be playing, errr, "Xbox" on a touch screen monitor. Simple is good. Simple is best. The current 360 dash is kind of a clusterfuck.
-Keep the controller the same. Only change the d-pad to make it awesome. Make it exactly like the Saturn d-pad which was also used on the Genesis. No reason not to. Do it.

They seem to be in love with the Kinect and I can't see them breaking away from it any time soon. In fact, almost every time I hear about this "nextbox" I hear about how its going to revolve around Kinect.

And with that, the Windows 8 screen would probably work great with Kinect and Kinect is also the reason the dashboard looks the way it does today.

How much emphasis is put on Kinect will probably determine how much I actually want this console at all. I don't like Kinect, it's ruining the xbox 360 for me as it is.

The constant dashboard updates to make it more kinect friendly and it seeming like Microsoft wants everything to be Kinect related and how they make it seem like Kinect is the future of gaming (at least on xbox) is really ruining any excitement I get for xbox in general or its future.

It's not ruining the games I'm playing of course not, but I feel almost as if its ruining my hope for future fun games on xbox because outside of the franchises Microsoft already has going, everything seems to be 100% Kinect.

Well i'll tell you what, I have had a kinect since there it's release, and in that first year it was kind of rough, the software wasn't there and the extra functionality wasn't there either. Now, the software still isn't there, but the functionality is on point. I cut that mother fucker on and all I do is talk to it, TALK TO IT, and it does that shit. "Xbox" - "Apps" - "Hulu Plus". Then going into the applications I talk to that mother fucker again, and straight up.... it's awesome for that alone is what i'm saying. If the nextbox has this and focuses on that kind of user experience, I'm in. The software will never be what it needs to be because devs don't want to invest the time into researching it, and I can't blame them.

idk why the kinect doesn't have a warning that it automatically sets itself up to be the mic during online gaming. I didn't realize it was a default mic until I saw my gametag pop up with the waves telling my i just said something. I mean, its not like you're always playing by yourself.

lol yea I was playing some halo the other day and someone in my house said something really loud right next to it and we had our stereo system up real loud (cuz the sounds in halo 4 are awesome) and it echoed off of someone else's mic in the game.

Actually the D-pad is pretty great now they remolded the xbox controllers now every new controller got a cool comfy D-Pad.

I have always hated the xbox controller but after this it beat and put the dull shock and Nintendo classic controller to shame. Only problem is the button shape and layout but i guess they have to be different.

Actually it is. It can't be new forever. Three years down the road you still want to be calling it "The New Xbox"? This would set it up to be the blunt of many jokes. "Xbox" is better than "The New Xbox". Worst is "Xbox Next". Not sure what idiot thought of that one. I vote for "Xbox 361", personally. But they should differentiate it from the Xbox which already is called Xbox. The Xbox 360 was only called 360 so it could have a 3 next to the name so it wouldn't appear less powerful than the Playstation 3. Get Xbox 2 or Playstation 3? Well the PS3 MUST be more powerful because it has a higher number.

Also, if they were taking Apple's lead, Xbox would be pronounced "Ten Box".

I guess you open it up for confusion by putting Next in the title, but no more than by simply calling it Xbox. As long as the successor's name is both different and not Xbox 360, I think people would get their heads around it.

Also, that website screenshot hasn't been completely debunked. There's no proof it's real, but no positive proof it's not real, either. I remain undecided towards its authenticity.

So just like how PC gaming is then.

Microsoft’s next console will require an Internet connection in order to function, ruling out a second-hand game market for the platform. A new iteration of Xbox Live will be an integral part of Microsoft’s next console, while improved Kinect hardware will also ship alongside the unit.

Sources with first-hand experience of Microsoft’s next generation console have told us that although the next Xbox will be absolutely committed to online functionality, games will still be made available to purchase in physical form. Next Xbox games will be manufactured on 50GB-capacity Blu-ray discs, Microsoft having conceded defeat to Sony following its ill-fated backing of the HD-DVD format. It is believed that games purchased on disc will ship with activation codes, and will have no value beyond the initial user.

Our source has also confirmed that the next Xbox’s recently rumoured specs are entirely accurate. That means an AMD eight-core x64 1.6GHz CPU, a D3D11.x 800MHz graphics solution and 8GB of DDR3 RAM. As of now, the console’s hard drive capacity is said to be undecided, but Microsoft’s extended commitment to online delivery suggests that it will be the largest unit it has put inside a console to date.

Though the architectures of the next-gen Xbox and PlayStation both resemble that of PCs, several development sources have told us that Sony’s solution is preferable when it comes to leveraging power. Studios working with the next-gen Xbox are currently being forced to work with only approved development libraries, while Sony is encouraging coders to get closer to the metal of its box. Furthermore, the operating system overhead of Microsoft’s next console is more oppressive than Sony’s equivalent, giving the PlayStation-badged unit another advantage.

Unlike Nintendo, Microsoft is continuing to invest heavily in motion-control interfaces, and a new, more reliably responsive Kinect will also ship alongside the next Xbox. Sony’s next-generation console camera system is said to have a similar set of features, and is expected to be discussed at the company’s PlayStation event on February 20.

Big licenses and tired old franchises seem to be the order of the day. It's disheartening to watch as console developers impose their brand of market control (e.g. attempting to circumvent the first-sale doctrine), nonsensical regulations, etc. etc. But I've gone down this route too many times in the past to expound upon it again. Suffice to say, if it's mandatory that these new consoles be online-enabled in order to play, they will never have a place in my house. I won't submit to being a mere subject to corporate oversight over what I do with products I own; this isn't the Dark Ages.

Actually, that's not the case. I tend to enjoy playing solo. The best thing about online was fighting games, particularly SFIII. But from what I heard, they want to make online mandatory for the next-gen. What about yourself? Does this sound appealing to you?

Do you not own a router or something? Whether playing single-player or online multiplayer, the Xbox 360 will connect to Xbox Live by default. You'd have to remove the Ethernet cord or otherwise disable your internet connection to prevent it, which is silly all around.

It suck because if they shut down the serves all the games you bought will be rendered unplayable and got no collection value.


Also sometimes router disconnect by it self every once in a while, it may be rare but I don't want that to happen in mid gameplay and LOSS all my progress in the process, cause the milt-billion companies now days are INCAPABLE of making a proper system that can be turned on without the help of a router!!


In what way you look at it, forced online has no benefit for the consumer (my self) so why would you or anyone want it? :confused:

Like I said I use the XB360 more then any other console. The XB360 connects me to Xbox Live automatically whenever I switch it on. So really it's not going to be any different whatsoever.

I'm sure it's more of a worry for people living in remote areas but in the last year. We may of had problems with the internet once for like three days. So it's no biggy to me at all.

Just found out that one of my professors for Marketing and Branding is on the account for advertising the new Xbox. He's one of like 9 people who know the new name. Sadly, I couldn't get him to risk the consequences and tell me it. LMAO

Yeah it's going to be Xbox 720. It was revealed in the movie "Real Steel".
