This would be a good upgrade if true. Enough ram for developers and graphics that should be leaps and bounds ahead of what we have now.

yay! another Xbox rumor thread (sorry to be snide). it would be better if everyone put their thoughts into one thread. having 5+ threads is a bit much.

with ISPs restricting overusage of bandwidth and throttling, I can't see how next generations consoles can go solely to cloud gaming like OnLive. Physical media will be here for quite awhile until the bandwidth usage issue is resolved by some future breakthrough

I would not trust any "source" coming out of France...

Taiwan? Maybe. Redmond, WA? Probably. France has no connections...

If I didn't know better, I'd say that the Wii U forced Sony and MS to move their asses.

Well, MS did enjoy a huge tactical advantage for going first ... It would make sense to try to do it again.

By the time the Xbox 360 came out, it never felt like I got my money's worth from my regular Xbox unit.

The fact that Microsoft has taken it's time with the Xbox 720 (thankfully) I can truly say (even now) I feel like I've gotten my money's worth with the Xbox 360.

Not only that, the longer it takes to update consoles, the faster and more powerful the hardware will be.

The new units better have Blu-ray and HD audio.

Movies must be OAR, sports and movies must also have 5.1 audio, No EE or NO SALE!

a big thing for me, is this better be a reliable console, i have never owned a worse console from a reliability standpoint (i have owned about every console since intellivision) not only the 360 itself going out multiple times and having to buy another, but even controllers completely stop working.... so they better have everything figured out by launch...

consoles are maxed. limiting pc gaming because consoles can't do native 1080p

it's time for new ones. next xbox and ps4 will have clarity and better textures cause of true 1080. so expect it to look like bf3 and skyrim are on pc today.

Skyrim really doesn't look a world better on PC. You can max it out on mid-range hardware. Bah.

Anyone who is saying NexBox is coming out in 2012 is just straight up lying.

The fact the few select developers are getting early hardware test setups is more likely. Those hardware setups will firm up over 2012 as actual hardware final decisions are made. Dev Kits will probably go out 2013 or so. The earliest you see Nexbox is still 2014.

2013 seems most likely I also don't think you will see it until E3.

It's all rumors and speculation, but dev kits are supposed to ship to developers in the next couple weeks.

Deja Vu all over again... it seems like we've had these discussions somewhere before.... If only there was a way to discern if a particular topic was being covered in another thread *sigh* Someday perhaps we'll have the technology. If only Steve Jobs was still among us

From the supposed specs, it sounds like it would be as powerful as a high end gaming rig is today($1500). to get that for around $400 would be a steal. I would like a console that won't melt, scratch discs and have controllers that quit working.
