So the next Xbox is getting revealed in a big event at 10am PST on May 21. Should be very exciting to see what Microsoft has in store. I'll get an article posted on it once all the information is revealed, and this thread will be used for everyone to talk about it and share any information. Or speculate, depending on what all MS shows. Anything particularly interesting people are wanting in the next Xbox?

 

 

Called the Xbox One, it's due to arrive later this year at an undetermined date for an undisclosed price.

 

For starters, it has an eight-core CPU, 8GB of RAM (likely DDR3), a 500GB HDD, a Blu-ray drive, 802.11n WiFi with WiFi Direct, HDMI in/out, and USB 3.0. The CPU is of the 64-bit variety, although exact specifications are lacking at this time. The Blu-ray drive looks to be of the slot loading type, so no more disc tray that needs to take up more space. The Xbox One is, well, rather large in size, as is the new controller. Like I said before, it resembles the current X360 one, but with some refinements. The Xbox jewel in the middle is moved up top, vibration sensors are built right into the triggers, the D-pad has been reworked to hopefully remove frustrations, and the battery compartment is flush with the body.

 

Xbox One uses a rather unique method for the OS, as it runs not one but three simulatenously. There's the main system OS that's a paired down version of Windows for apps and non-game software downloaded from the store, an "Xbox OS" to handle games, and finally a third OS that's really more of a virtualization helper to make sure the main and Xbox OSes can talk to each other. The Xbox OS is a fixed component throughout the Xbox One's lifespan, so developers know that won't change regardless of what kind of updates Microsoft rolls out to the main OS. These OSes enable the multitasking of the console, especially with the HDMI passthrough for a cable/satellite box. However, even though Xbox One runs a modified version of Windows, developers won't be able to drag and drop PC apps onto the console. Microsoft says it's possible, but it requires some coding and UI tuning to make it work.

 

If you're wondering how the Xbox One's PC architecture will handle current Xbox 360 games, well, it won't. The Xbox 360 is based on PowerPC and that means games built for it, including Xbox Live Arcade games, won't be able to make the transition to the Xbox One. No backwards compatibility may be an issue for some people, but Microsoft isn't concerned about that as it still plans to support the 360 with new games and apps. Your Xbox Live Gamertag and Gamerscore are going to transfer over to the new system, however, so at least there is that.

To see if it's a gaming console with some media features which are hopefully optional, no ads etc. If it's a media box with gaming capabilities then meh, hope it flops like the Windows tablets.

There's also a new dashboard update for the 360 coming that will be similar to Windows 8.1 UI wise and to the new Xbox I assume, also apparently getting rid of the terrible point system

Might be seeing EA show off FIFA 14, UFC and others today

And some BF4 news

I wonder if they'll have any decent exclusives at E3 or today

Some exclusives will probably be Forza 5 and that Kinect game from Crytek, Ryse.

 

Hopefully EA doesn't go and be like "yeah, any piece of DLC for any game we make is exclusive to the new Xbox for a month after launch." Although that's kind of happened with the current consoles. :lol:

Yeah, they're not really too compelling for me, guess we'll see! Exclusivity might be better than the messed up Skyrim DLC for the PS3 :3

 

Ah so that's why EA abandoned Season Passes  :lol:

Yeah :D They're a bit late to the 1,2,3 naming scheme, specially considering that they own Windows xD

 

That controller looks huge! Kinect looks interesting this time round though.

Going from 360 to One...yeah, makes perfect sense! :rolleyes:

 

And that controller is a step backwards as well, going back to original Xbox size. So far, the score is as follows:

 

Controller: PS4

Name: PS4

Specs: TBD

Focus: PS4 - Sony's focus during the unveil was clearly games - big game reveals, Gaikai, Remote Play for Vita with all PS4 games. MS's focus (so far) is on non-gaming entertainment.

Features: TBD

Exclusive Games: TBD

 

MS has some catching up to do in the TBD categories.

Dual architecture sounds good, but I'm not sure about all that moving about while in-game...

Plus I don't play sports games. Games aren't meant to include exercise.
