Microsoft’s Xbox One reveal was lacking any real video game news, which is understandable since they’re saving all that for E3 next month. That doesn’t mean we don’t have a good idea of what’s coming to the console. After the break you’ll find a (work in progress) list of games you can expect to see on the Xbox One.
In case you haven’t heard, Microsoft is unveiling the next Xbox today (at 10 AM Pacific / 1 PM Eastern) and the Internet is abuzz with rumors about the console. Will it be dubbed the Xbox Infinity, or just Xbox? Will those scary rumors of a required constant Internet connection be confirmed, or were they just that, rumors? What will Microsoft do to squash their competition? Supposedly, the console’s big reveal will bring with it a slew of big exclusives — will that include the long-teased Alan Wake 2? I sure hope so.
So many questions, and really no answers. Yet. With only a few hours left to wait, what would you like to see from the next Xbox?
The long rumored but never confirmed follow-up to the Xbox 360, code named the “Durango”, has just been made official. The console and “Kinect 2.0″ will be unveiled at Microsoft’s Redmond campus on May 21. Hopefully it won’t require an always on Internet connection.
I already know what games I’d like to play on it — what would you like to see from the console?
Not content to give Sony all the headlines, Microsoft may be prepping a reveal of the next Xbox on April 26th. CVG associate editor Rob Crossley recently tweeted “The next Xbox event is scheduled for April 26th, I’ve been told by someone I trust. Microsoft may change date, obvs, but diarise tentatively.” Like all rumors, this should obviously be taken with a grain of salt, but it corroborates with recent rumblings that Microsoft has been working on an official unveiling of their new console soon.
I think there’s a very good chance we’ll actually see the console when Microsoft announces it, otherwise Xbox Live’s Major Nelson’s recent potshot at Sony’s decision not to reveal their console probably would come off as a little hypocritical.
Major Nelson, the face of Xbox Live, has started a countdown on his blog. This countdown is ticking away toward the future, as countdowns do, and when it hits zero, it will be E3. What could he possibly be teasing? We won’t know until June, but there’s a pretty good chance it’ll be Microsoft’s follow-up to the Xbox, which has popped up now and again (and again) in various rumors. Rumors should always be taken with a grain of salt, and Microsoft has never not given us a big E3 reveal that’s worth counting down to, but still, this could be it. I’m feeling good about it — are you?
UK gaming magazine Xbox World may soon be going into that good night (alongside Nintendo Power, PlayStation: The Official Magazine, and PSM3), but with news like this, it seems they’re making sure they go out with a bang.Their second to last issue is a doozie, and will reportedly unveil tons of information on Microsoft’s highly anticipated follow-up to the Xbox 360. For starters, it won’t have the Xbox 720 moniker and will instead be known only as the Xbox. That seems a little strange, seeing as there’s already been an Xbox, but none of this has been, or will likely ever be confirmed by Microsoft. The specs are really exciting though — it will come with a quad-core CPU, built-in Blu-ray player, 8GB RAM, and support for a head-mounted augmented reality device (possibly the Oculus Rift, unless Microsoft has their own in development) as well as the next generation Kinect. More after the jump, including some mock-ups of what the console could look like.
If you haven’t already read about it elsewhere, then you’ve come to the right place! YES! The Xbox 720 has semi sort of been announced. There of course are random images out there of what it could look like, but we don’t really know yet. What I’ve heard so far, they are looking to eliminate the whole Microsoft Points system (YES!!!).
Bad news? Though just a rumor, it has been said that it will include a chip that wont allow you to play used games. WTF?! I would assume people will figure out how to remove or bypass it though, us humans are quite resourceful. More past the break. READ MORE
