  1. The next generation of console warfare is finally coming to a boil. We've seen the next Xbox, we can buy the Wii U right now and we've heard about the Playstation 4. Now wait a second... one of those things is not like the others. Of course we know the Playstation 4 is out there - we've seen some of its games and all that. We just haven't seen the console itself. Now why would this really matter? Its taken me a while to form this into words that make sense to more people than just myself, but I think I've finally figured it out. I know how to explain to people why it is so important to show the console itself during these big flashy events, and I think I've also figured out specifically why Sony didn't show theirs a few months back. Let's get to it, shall we? The Problem With Our Silly Brains Imagine this scenario in your head. You're driving your Jalopy down to the soda shop when you hear an announcement over the radio. The man behind the microphone delivers the startling news that a crazed murderer has escaped from prison and is in your general area. He then goes back to the normally broadcasted tunes of Frank Sinatra and the Pied Pipers. Do you know what the 1950's radio announcer did wrong in the above scenario? He didn't give you any details that would allow your mind to picture the imminent threat in your area. You have nothing to anchor the memory in your mind except for the fact that someone said something over the radio. Sure, at first the word 'MURDERER' would be drilled into your skull and you'll feel hyped up at the thoughts going through your head. Try to talk about a TV show you've never seen before and see how quickly you lose interest But as time passes, you lose the ability to have meaningful discussions about it. You know there is a murderer out there because you heard the announcement, but without any way of actually picturing what this person looks like you're left with a gap in your brain. You have no way to talk about the killer without knowing more details. Without the ability to visualize or even talk about it, you start to lose interest in it. This is kind of the same problem people are having with the Playstation 4. Sure you can imagine what it looks like. As many people have said, its going to be a black box. But at the same time you don't actually know if it'll be a black box or not. You have nothing to attach your memories of the event to and you can't describe what the console really is, so you start to lose your ability to discuss it. Sure we saw some amazing looking games like Infamous: Second Son and Killzone: Shadowfall, but your memories of those games don't remind you of the next Playstation. They remind you of the next Infamous. Of course the next Infamous will then remind you of the next Playstation, but that's where you hit the blank spot. No matter what you try to imagine, you're going to come up blank. The Silver Lining Of Lost Hype Now that a few months have passed without anyone being able to put a picture to the PS4, some people have lost their hype for the next generation console. It isn't a serious loss of hype, but the lack of information or pictures these last few months has caused people to forget the excitement they felt at the Playstation 4 announcement. This gives Sony the chance to rekindle their hype machine like some sort of marketing phoenix out of the ashes. Whatever it looks like, at least it isn't this And that's something they're going to need desperately now that Microsoft has entered the race to the next generation. While Sony has been biding it's time and waiting in the shadows with their system's design after their big reveal, Microsoft will have a direct sprint into E3 right after their announcement. While we have no way of knowing how Microsoft will follow up their announcement, it'll be interesting to see how the lead up to E3 will turn out now that Microsoft has shown it's hand. Sony, What Are You Doing? Sony recently released a teaser trailer on their official Youtube page showing off a Bigfoot quality picture of the Playstation 4. They attached some awe inspiring music and told you to get hyped because come E3, you're going to see the actual Playstation 4 design. While seeing the design is all fine and dandy, how many people are actually excited to see it? It is either a black box or a Sasquatch monster Nobody is going to drool over the console's matte finish or the ridges it may or may not have. We don't want to see the console so we can talk about how cool it looks. We need to see the console so we can put a face to the Playstation 4 name. Without being able to see the console we have nothing to attach our hype to and therefore nothing to hype up. Sony, nobody cares about the design! We just need the design so our brains don't feel so stupid when we try to picture your console. Luckily, we'll get that chance in a few days as we finally see the PS4 unveiled for the first time at Sony's pre-E3 press conference. As always, thank you for reading. And an apology ahead of time if it seemed like I was rambling because this is the closest my brain will get to putting my feelings into words about all this nonsense.
  2. The Xbox One has just been confirmed for a 2013 launch window. It was also mentioned that the release would be worldwide, but it wasn't said if this worldwide release would be simultaneous or not. Odds are it won't be, but we'll see. Of course Microsoft didn't give an exact date or price due to E3 being just weeks away, but you won't have to wait very long before you know exactly when you'll get your hands on this new console.

    Forza 5 Revealed for Xbox One

    Microsoft has just revealed Forza 5 for their new console, the Xbox One. It was also just announced that the game will in fact be a launch title for Microsoft's newest console. While it didn't look to be too much different compared to current generation games, its certainly going to be a thorn in the side of Sony's recently revealed Gran Turismo 6. Take a look at one of the cars below. Can you really tell the difference between this car and one from Forza 4? These racing games have just gotten too photo-realistic as it is to cause any waves in next generation announcements. How stylish!
  4. It has just been revealed that each and every Xbox One will come bundled with the new Kinect. Considering how important it is to the system's new design, I can't say I'm surprised. What is surprising though is what this new Kinect 2 can do. The darned thing can monitor your heart while you play! It was described as being so advanced that the technology behind it is similar to rocket science. I say its more like Skynet with each and every announcement.
  5. After the big reveal of the new Xbox One, it was revealed that the console will have a much more extensive list of voice activated commands that the user could use. The very first one they showed off was "Xbox One, turn on." The Xbox sprang to life and immediately went to the presenter's account. But wait, there's more! Not only did they reveal that the console is listening to you while it is off, it is also listening for distinct voices. Without powering on it knows what you're saying and even who is saying what. This is pretty exciting technology in my eyes, but prepare for the tinfoil hats to come out any time now.

    Bungie Says Destiny Will Be Revealed Soon

    Over the years, Bungie has been known for bringing us the Halo series, which is perhaps the biggest exclusive franchise to ever hit the Xbox and Xbox 360. Some time ago, however, the company said goodbye and handed their son off to 343 Industries, who provided the critically-acclaimed Halo 4. What will Bungie be doing now, though? Well, you may remember hints and leaks regarding a game called Destiny somewhere (like maybe Halo 3: ODST), and now it seems the project will be getting a big reveal fairly soon. In the latest video from Bungie Community Theatre, host DeeJ reads a letter from a big fan of Halo named James. After reading the letter, DeeJ thanks the fan for his enthusiasm, but tells him that "we don't make Halo games anymore." He then goes on by giving a small but pretty big announcement, saying "Within a matter of weeks, we'll unveil what we've been creating for you. In the meantime, keep your eyes trained on www.bungie.net, so you don't miss a thing." It'll be nice to see what Bungie has for us, especially since we've been teased for so long without seeing or hearing much about it (though knowing that Paul McCartney is doing the music makes waiting easier). Here is the latest episode of Bungie Community Theatre, if you would like to watch the announcement for yourself: Are you excited for the official reveal of Bungie's Destiny?
