OT: Seriously hope it's not like a HTPC like someone else said. I don't see how they can't make a $500 box with at least hardware close to even low-end PCs. Like bump up the price to $500, and add good hardware, I'm sure people will buy it.

Also keep in mind that they did refresh the X-box last year, so why would they release a new console a only 2 years later? Seems dumb to me...

So you want them to use the current fastest dual GPU solution?
Good luck with that, as the power draw alone would be hard to deal with in a console.
And considering the performance they can pull out of the old GPUs they have now...coding to the metal could easily make a 5870 equivalent kick some serious tail.
Actually, considering the video constraints that most home HDTV's have, there's no reason to try dropping 2GB of VRAM or any of the other stuff we use for PC resolutions.

IDK if it may be asking too much, but I'm hoping the new consoles could produce game quality like BF3 all ultra with everything on and @1080p @60FPS as launch titles or early titles

If there isn't any support for M+KB I'll happily go out and buy something along the lines of a XIM3 [M+KB emulator]
If people would quit being so stubborn I could have converted more people to PC gaming. tongue.gif

As much as I love PC gaming over playing my 360, consoles do tend to be more "social" as you can have a whole group of your friends and chill on the couch and play/watch the xbox but on PC it's a bit more "personal" cause it's only yourself sitting in front of the monitor in a chair

Ok

Your not going to see a modular Xbox because then GPUs would have to have an industry standard in size and what not. Maybe if they went under contract and had a seperate line of console gpus which where all same size, similar power draw and so on.

Second, your not going to see a high end computer in the next xbox. The reason pcs are ahead is because you spend 2-3k getting a high end one. No one is going to buy an xbox that cost 3k. Would cost more then that cause they gotta put all the same parts. (cpu, MB, gpu, ram, HDD in a small little case.

Consoles need to target the people that cant justify or cant afford spending money on a high end PC for gaming. The guys that buy gaming systems for their younger kids. So to release soemting around the $400-$500 dollar mark, its going to just have fairly average components. However they work hard to get the most out of these components.

However the PS3 was different when it came out, it had world breaking technology in it almost that major companies wanted, however they ended up being a let down because the amazing cpu couldn't use the very little ram it could support well. So it ended up with a good cpu and very little ram.

So for those of you that want to see high end this and that in a console. The only way you can get that is connecting a controller to your PC.

not going to happen. Microsoft has stated their desire to release a slimmer/sleeker console (ie one they won't have to price @ $500 and/or lose money selling each unit like they did with the 360 or Sony did with the PS3), this basically means less powerful for the time-frame relative to what the 360 introduced upon its release. Given the fact that this current rumor suggest a holiday 2012 release, then technology simply won't be able to be shrunk enough to fit anything of noteworthy power.

Like I said before, I don't expect anything substantially more powerful than what Nintendo is planning with the Wii U. And with Nintendo as the newly established market leader, it would make sense for Microsoft do something like that, as it would make things easier for developers for crossing platforms, and it would also place tremendous pressure upon Sony to do something or get left behind.

Besides, current consoles are still receiving so much attention despite their lack of hardware capability, and players really aren't complaining about graphical prowess, graphics really are "good enough" at the moment. Really, all we need from a next gen console is the ability to go from 720p to 1080p, and that hardware transition really isn't that big of a leap.

I think consoles should stay like nintendo's, xbox's new console should just be powerfull enough to play all the kinect type of games (family and animated and so on, non graphic intensive) refine the technology a bit more. Sony can do their own little thing with the move and stuff. Then leave the real games for the PC so we can stop all these ****ty ports.

I only really use my xbox for kinect and halo. Everything else the pc is better at. Nintendo has always hit the consoles spot on. Designed for party entertainment, kids and family gameplay.
