But like I said if they say they something similar to what I suggested they won't have to mention the console at all. I mean they don't 'have' to respond to a certain article/media outlet. Just a general statement

and who are we kidding? MS isn't as stupid to think people don't know there's a new xbox coming soon. They have teased it themselves in recent times. There is no big hurdle or negative impact of them making comments about their future plans/consoles. But like I said they might be thinking it will be a good idea to wait for the reveal to do this but I don't think it's a good idea. 

Why they need a general statement when 360 already don't need online to play games?if they do it,it must about 720,people in gaming fourm won't suddenly think "oh just a normal statement".

Actually,most people in real world don't know 720 is coming yet,only some gamer following gaming forums knows right now,they teased but don't mean they announced,plus their "tease" never give any even just a little details.

Btw,future plans?well,ok

That is their plan,they don't give a fuck about any rumors,good or bad.

 

Again, you honestly think people are that stupid to think MS won't be making any future consoles? Wtf is this logic. They don't have to mention ANYTHING ABOUT THE 720. Just say they will continue to be consumer friendly and value all customers going forward. See, that kind of statement/comment will NOT make any mention of a specific console. Just that they will continue the same path they have as before. Not sure why this is so hard for you to understand

and I never said they have been doing it....I mean if they were all these negativity won't be around and all these rumors would be put to rest. My argument is that they SHOULD take some steps to tone things down a bit. Either this is true or as I said multiple times they think it's wiser to wait until the actual reveal, which I disagree with.

On another note, a user said the following over at gaf

So I don't get many inside scoop honestly and I'll never put my GAF account at risk so take it with more than a grain of salt but my good friend at Treyarch, the one who told me about COD:blops2 back in the wust days when it wasn't announced yet, told me that:

online connection is indeed required to start games for the first time
kinect integration like manu navigation is mandatory for every game but it's actually done at system level
used games are not blocked per se

Hardly breaking-news info but I thought maybe someone would have been interested in such speculation nontheless

Again,you honestly think most people in real world know there will be 720?

And again,why they need a general statement when they already NOT doing that?plus no one asked MS about this,why they suddenly need to reply that?ok,even MS just say"not require online guys",why you think people in gaming fourm won't think it's about 720?not sure why this is so hard for you to understand.

They SHOULD NOT say anything,until the announcement,because it doesn't matter since just gamer in gaming forum disscusing that,it's so stupid fall in a media trap that easy,let them anxious.

Btw why posting a neogaf random member reply to me?


Im at uni, almost all male students have at least ONE console, you seriously think with the WiiU out and the mainstream reveal of the PS4 (trending on twitter, number of youtube hits etc) that everyone with an xbox console (80 million units) isnt wondering about the new xbox console?

we are in the an age of information. If any consumer wants to know about a new xbox its as simple as googling new xbox, and when the search results reveal blocked games and always online then its definately going to put consumers off.

They're wondering doesn' mean they know anything,like all these rumors.

And age of information,if you think they will search,why you think they won't notice it's rumor or MS never said anything?

Because its a rumor thats been continiously popping up for the last 6 months or so. And their wondering means they EXPECT a new microsoft console. 

Popping up in gaming forum,then?right now you people starting act like no a single one person will watch Microsoft announcement anymore because they read some rumors.

I'll believe it when i see it. If this is true, then I am dissatisfied.

First off, that post I reposted here of a gaf user is not for you per se..just an additional bit of info for everyone to see. Didn't want to put it in a seperate post 

and they SHOULD make a move when multiple sources keep repeating this. This is NOT good.

And finally, unless MS was going to drop out of the console business even the general public would know there will be more consoles etc from MS in the future. Making a general statement about their future vision does absolutely no harm, in fact it will help improve the buzz leading up to the nextbox reveal. 

on an added note: why do you keep missing the point I'm making and randomly talking about things I never said. MS doesn't have to say don't worry guys always online is a no no in the future lol and I have REPEATEDLY told you the kind of statement they can make. And what are you going on about with comments like 'you think gamers won't know it's about 720' etc etc..I mean who gives a shit? You make it sound like some CIA secret about WMDs or something. Gamers KNOW 720 is coming. It will surprise no one. A simple PR statement can do a lot of good easing conserns leading up to the reveal that's all. Stop defending MS like crazy for a second and think about it

They SHOULD NOT make any move until announcment,fuck the medias,i love don't give a fuck style attitude

Like i said,they know more doesn't mean they know anything like us,make a general statement means nothing especially they already NOT doing that,what's the point to say that again?

So what kind of statement the can make?they already making a statement in fact,it's called Xbox 360.

So every people in real world=gamers?wow what a awesome world i living.I said gamers know,but most people in real world don't know,2 different groups.

A simple PR statement can do nothing other than more fanboy wars unless it come with new console announcement.

Ease on the swearing!

What are you exactly saying, i'm having trouble understanding your post/english.



According to a new study; YouTube, Xbox.com, NeoGaf, N4G, VGChartz, IGN, GameSpot, GameStop, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, All of Europe, FAMITSU, Japan, the rest of Asia and The whole of the Middle East among countless others are experiencing a Tsunami of people in love with Sony's gamings offerings.

Ugh, when are people going to stop spreading this rumor? It's a rumor and people supposedly having a Durango have said it does and other have said it doesn't.

It's a rumor. It's pointless to bicker or speculate about it. No, we don't know. Yes, nobody likes always-on.

To my knowledge, no one has denied this rumor. Referring back to the Kotaku article: http://kotaku.com/the-next-xbox-will-require-an-internet-connection-to-st-470062456

"That said, a caution and a caveat: other sources familiar with the codenamed Durango console have told us that they are still unaware of any Microsoft plans regarding an online requirement. No one has been able to say it's not true and some have speculated that this is required at the operating system level and therefore isn't something Microsoft has to tell all developers or retail partners. Microsoft also has the ability to change this type of requirement seemingly at a moment's notice through changes in firmware or networking infrastructure."

The funny part is that right now in Redmond, Washington there are dozens of lowly, minimum wage game tester with poor social skills who are most likely testing the new xbox.

If only one of those people could break NDA and post something here. Lol.

Some of these rumors are very negative though... If microsoft really tries to screw the consumer with this new hardware -- it wouldn't be bad if people just migrated to the playstation4.

Hopefully if something like that does occur gamers stick together and migraite to a better console.

If rumor is true, the next Xbox gives a big middle finger to gamers not wanting always-on gameplay

Posted by: Lance Liebl

I'm boiling over with anger right now. If the rumor report by Kotaku today is true, there's going to be a lot of gamers just as angry as I am. Kotaku reported that two of their sources are saying the next Xbox, codenamed Durango, will be an always-online system. What does this mean? It mean that the next Xbox will require an internet connection to start and play games.

Let's hope this is a rumor. Even so, there's a little bit of truth attached to most false rumors. And since I've been in the industry, I would say a larger percentage of the rumors we've come across have been true. If the rumor is true, I would imagine that it would hurt the perception of Microsoft's next-gen console, especially when compared to the PlayStation 4, which Sony confirmed will not require an online connection -- just like every other console ever made.

Kotaku's sources said, "Unless something has changed recently, Durango consumer units must have an active internet connection to be used. If there isn't a connection, no games or apps can be started. If the connection is interrupted then after a period of time -- currently three minutes, if I remember correctly -- the game/app is suspended and the network troubleshooter started."

How nice of Microsoft to give us three minutes if our internet goes down. It's what all gamers want -- their gaming experience to be controlled by servers and internet connection. Because, ya know, that worked so well for SimCity. It's the fact that I won't be able to play a game I bought on a console I bought that's a little scary. And, once again, if this is true, what about people that have unreliable internet or no internet at all? What are they supposed to do?

Kotaku did note that other sources said they were unaware of any plans Microsoft had for an online requirement. Still, no one has denied it, and if it's required as part of the operating system, Microsoft doesn't have to tell developers or retail partners. Of course, when Kotaku tried to reach Microsoft for a comment, they said, "We do not comment on rumors or speculation. We are always thinking about what is next for our platform, but we don't have anything further to share at this time."

Until it's confirmed, it's just a rumor. But it's an unsettling rumor. And if it wasn't true, why wouldn't Microsoft just squash it now so that there's not a negative connotation surrounding their next Xbox?

Who knows, maybe this negative publicity is specifically being released by MS. I mean, does this kind of news really deter people from purchases? It's not like people don't have lots of time to make up their mind... people are still talking about the new xbox, and then if none of these things are true, then nexbox will have gone way over expectations.

At least, that's how it looks to me.
