All seems reasonably likely, with a launch in first half of 2013 being likely and November 2012 or 2013 being the earliest and latest. I worry slightly for MS if they do make it that powerful, but I'm sure they'll pull through.

MS didn't plan for RROD to happen (I don't think anyway!) but they started making profits in the E&D division in late 2007, that was with the 1 Bill RROD pay off earlier that year. I think MS made the 360 break even/profitable relatively early.

With people still paying for XBL on the 360, any losses on 720 can be offset. So I think they'd be willing to take a loss. They regularly making about $600 mill in the E&D per Q now.

My body is NOT ready.

Let's hope PS4 releases a little bit later, that's the next gen console I will be buying anyway.

EDIT: I meant that I will buy the PS4 regardless, it wasn't a dig at the XBOX 720, an E3 2012 reveal is too early IMO and I am not willing to spend that amount of money so early.

So you come in here to post that? uh huh



 

I wonder how what Microsoft's plans with 720 (as well as its name) are. Will they expand with Kinect, with maybe physical controls like PSEye?

Damn, I didn't mean it like that.

Read the "edited" version, hope that clears things up.

Still, even if you did take my post in a negative way, it's hardly worth a response is it?

isn't it obvious that they will release soon? the real war (at E3) begins in 2012! pity we have to wait a year for it...



    R.I.P Mr Iwata :'(


LIVE gives ms such an advantage now. They can launch more or equally powerful hardware at a reduced ( subsidized) cost or they can enter profits much sooner.

LIVE is a service that engenders product loyalty and cash flow other manufacturers just can't match and HAVE to be looking at longingly.



I'm not really here!

seems too late personally

360 will be 7 years old by the end of 2012. Historically sony releases a new console every 6 years.

Older and wiser. Still bias and proud though ;)

then again we all know and knew that gen will be longer... it was planned and it is supposed to be especially for hardware like PS3 launched a 600 bucks... but beside that the life cycle are bound to become longer and longer.... if they keep doing big jumps between hardware..... or get reallly short if they take the apple approach "let's do some little better crap every 12 month" style.... but I doubt that approach is suitable for console and even for SMARTphones on the long run and especially very long run....



Can't wait. Really have to hope that they start pushing the boundaries and limits of what these consoles can do though. I'd like to see some sort of better keyboard integration and more MMO based titles for the console. I really think game development companies have missed the boat as far as targeting the masses for online games.
