The source for all these Kotaku articles is clearly JTARD.

Until today I the only upcoming hardware I was even slightly interested in was the Rift. Dat Illumiroom though. I like dat.

Projectors though... hot, noisy, expensive.

They probably are cheaper and quieter compared to last time I was paying attention. Still, I'm betting the projector would cost at least as much as the console. It used to cost hundreds just to replace the lamp, too.

they are cheaper and slightly quieter. Still make noise & lamps still cost a fuckton

in entry level units the lamp costs almost as much as the whole thing. they also have a shorter life span eg ~800hrs as compared to a decent one with ~1500-2000hrs

i like it.

tbh at this stage i'm leaning towards not even bothering with the next gen unless gta5 is on them at launch. think i might slowly convert to just being a full time console fag this go round.

well I said E3 rather than when they launch as you'll see the major lineup and proper comparisons between the 2 on the same stage etc.

Yep, both Microsoft and Sony are going to have their competitor's console on stage with them and will be clearly pointing out the pros and cons of each in a balanced and unbiased manner.

i didnt fucking mean it that way you tard.

I meant we'll most probably get a whole lot more information about BOTH consoles around the same time (@ E3) which will result in better comparisons both by professionals and yourselves, so you can make your fucking decisions.

not that hard a fucking concept is it

That Microsoft proof of concept is awesome. A lot of the demo focused on FPS but in terms of immersion it would work really well in RPGs and the like.

Hope it sells and works better than kinect.

If they make it a gimmick and just tag it on to a few games, the "projector" will be packed away into cupboards.

so many people spazzing over fkn nothing.

Internal Memo

Quote:

"Durango is designed to deliver the future of entertainment while engineered to be tolerant of today's Internet. There are a number of scenarios that our users expect to work without an Internet connection, and those should 'just work' regardless of their current connection status. Those include, but are not limited to: playing a Blu-ray disc, watching live TV, and yes playing a single player game."

also confirms this

Quote:

The quotation also implicitly confirms another rumor: the next Xbox will sport an HDMI input, to allow cable boxes to be hooked up for live TV viewing. Our sources tell us that the console will be able to provide TV listings and similar information.

http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2013/0...ternet-doesnt/

its all over the net too if you dont trust the source.

also possibility that PGR is coming to xbox 720

Well played MS. Wait for the whole Adam Orth shitstorm to blow over, and for everyone to forget that there were also devs with Durango kits fuelling the online-only rumours. Then issue a press release "leaked internal email" telling us it was all a bad dream.

We'll never know, but it's possible that it really was an online-only system prior to the shitstorm. Nerdrage FTW.

I still think there will be LOADS of features that will be online only. the way theyre setting the thing up with all that it can do its highly possible.

its exactly what i expected it to be though, same as current xbox.

online features dont work when youve got no net connection. no shit!

wtf is going on, there is loads of articles all over the net stating that according to reliable direct sources the next xbox is called xbox infinity. there's some merrit to this with logo's popping up online and the fact M$ purchased a heap of xbox infinity urls.

the funny thing about it though is, the logos popped up BEFORE M$ purchased the urls and before the articles started saying "reliable sources" and it turns out the logos were photoshops done by a redditer who says he does photoshops like that for fun all the time.



is it or isnt it. wtf is going on.

Jesus fuck, this is what you get for clinging onto every single rumour and leaked bit of shitty information as soon as it drops on Kotaku.

Wait til things get a bit of traction before they become even worth acknowledging J-Rod, you're just gonna give yourself heartburn.

fer fuck sakes Jrod, just wait until the announcement on May 22nd. Stop posting rumours and wait. You're the only one who seems to care about the rumours.

Learn some fucking patience. It will serve you well someday.

i think the point most are trying to make is if anyone here cared about rumour, they'd already be reading kotaku/hindu times etc. you're filling a perfectly good thread with useless trash.
