  1. Not surprised here that it won't be BC and looks correct that the spec should be in line with the PS4. Any thoughts? Concerns? http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/04/09/bloomberg-next-xbox-to-use-amd-based-cpu?utm_campaign=twposts&utm_source=twitter
  2. http://www.neogaf.co...ad.php?t=536163 This is still more rumors but the more you hear about everyone saying the same rumors you have to think that it is bound to be true. No BC and always online (even thought it doesn't bother me that much) plus a $500 price tag definitely make me not want the system now. I can't say I won't ever get it but definitely be low on my list of system to get. Your thoughts? Credits to Milkman from GDD.
  3. Now that Sony has officially announced the PS4, all eyes are now on Microsoft to announce their own next-gen console. What would you guys like to see from their next console? Personally, I would like to see something more than just getting a beefed-up 360. I would like a reason to get whatever they offer other than better graphics. Although, some new exclusives would certainly help...
  4. I have heard the same tired arguments far too often over the years when it comes to console generations. People seem to think there are specific qualifications for a console to truly be considered “next-genâ€; that if other consoles outmatch another in horsepower, the less powerful one belongs in the last generation. And according to these people, with some disregard for the word“s literal definition, “generation†means something else entirely. Look, I respect everyone's opinions and all, but they won“t change facts. Many gamers' definition of “generation†isn“t correct; the less-powerful consoles do not belong in previous generations, and above all else, we shouldn“t even be fighting over something so pointless when we can just enjoy the most important part of this medium: the video games themselves. All this Console Wars nonsense is making gamers forget what gaming is all about. It's making gamers forget what generations are all about. So perhaps it's about time for a little refresher on what it truly means to be "next-gen," and most importantly, what it truly means to be a gamer. The Definition of “Generation†When a new generation comes along, what does that mean? Does it mean what a lot of gamers seem to think it means; that you can only be in the next generation if your power far exceeds that of the previous generation? No, it doesn“t. What it does mean is that the previous generation has another generation to succeed it, and that“s it. But what exactly IS a “generationâ€? Well, let“s see what Dictionary.com has to say: gen·er·a·tion [jen-uh-rey-shuh n] noun the entire body of individuals born and living at about the same time: the postwar generation. the term of years, roughly 30 among human beings, accepted as the average period between the birth of parents and the birth of their offspring. a group of individuals, most of whom are the same approximate age, having similar ideas, problems, attitudes, etc. Compare Beat Generation, Lost Generation. a group of individuals belonging to a specific category at the same time: Chaplin belonged to the generation of silent-screen stars. a single step in natural descent, as of human beings, animals, or plants. a form, type, class, etc., of objects existing at the same time and having many similarities or developed from a common model or ancestor (often used in combination): a new generation of anticancer drugs; a third-generation phone. the offspring of a certain parent or couple, considered as a step in natural descent. the act or process of generating; procreation. the state of being generated. production by natural or artificial processes; evolution, as of heat or sound. Biology. a. one complete life cycle. b. one of the alternate phases that complete a life cycle having more than one phase: the gametophyte generation. Mathematics. the production of a geometrical figure by the motion of another figure. Physics. one of the successive sets of nuclei produced in a chain reaction. (in duplicating processes, as photocopying, film, etc.) the distance in duplicating steps that a copy is from the original work. The most basic definition you can get from the 14 definitions above is that a generation is what comes after another generation. Simple enough, right? In other words, my generation came after my dad“s generation, his generation came after his dad“s, and so on. Therefore, that made-up definition a lot of gamers have given to console generations earlier isn“t at all correct. Honestly, I don“t even know how that particular definition came about in the first place. People have gotten so caught up in console wars and power battles that they have forgotten the meaning of the term “next-gen.†What It Means to Be Next-Gen I hear this far too often: “The Wii U isn“t next-gen!†I“m sorry, what? And what makes YOU the expert on generations? You say the Wii U isn“t next-gen, but why? Because the graphics don“t look leaps and bounds more realistic than on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 from the last generation? Because it doesn“t use the most powerful pieces of hardware money can buy? First of all, the Wii U graphics looking like they do in the console“s infancy is pretty damn impressive. It“s like a 3-year-old lifting as much as its uncles, if not more. So giving it time will only show more impressive results later in its lifetime, as has been the case with every console in every generation. Secondly, a console being considered “next-gen†isn“t determined by power and expensive hardware. As I“ve laid out for you above, one generation is what follows another generation. Power and expenses have nothing to do with it. I mean, if I“m not as powerful as other people my age, and if I wear clothes from Goodwill and drive a cheap car from 30 years ago (I“m depressing myself…), does that mean I should be placed in the same generation as my dad? Hell no! Hypothetically speaking, even if one of the big three companies suddenly decided to release an 8-bit console when generation 9 comes around, it would still be considered next-gen, because what it truly means to be next-gen is simple: you have to be in the generation following your predecessor. In which case, the Wii U following the Wii makes it next-gen, just like the PlayStation 4 is a generation following the PlayStation 3 and the next Xbox will be a generation following the Xbox 360. These are all next-gen consoles. Period. Play Games, Not Consoles Remember when gaming was all about playing video games? Those were the days… Now you can“t get into a conversation about the medium without someone bashing a certain console. Whether they consider Nintendo consoles as being for kids, Sony consoles as being for graphic-obsessed meat-heads, or Microsoft consoles as being for kids who like to scream profanity, “fanboys†will pull arguments out of their butts and hope people agree with them. None of these arguments ever hold merit, of course, but there are countless biased soldiers in the eternal conflict we call the Console Wars, and they all feel like the only option is to pick a side and fight. But why do we have to pick sides? Can“t we all just get along? Apparently not, because the Console Wars have never been won, and they“ve been waging on for decades… There was a time when Sega was known as Nintendo“s rival, with Sonic the Hedgehog being the “more mature†alternative to Mario. There were even those famous commercials from back in the day – one with the slogan “Sega does what Nintendon“t†and another with the slogan “Nintendo is what Genesisn“t.†Needless to say, this was the generation that first saw the Console Wars. And you know what I did in that generation? I owned both the SNES and the Genesis and played some pretty amazing games both consoles had to offer. Fast-forward to today and things haven“t changed all that much. Well, Sega may have been thrown out of the console market since then, but I still prefer owning all consoles and playing whatever the hell I feel like playing. So why can“t we all just do that? Why must gamers feel the need to pick sides and bash whoever isn“t their favorite brand? People might say that the Wii U isn“t next-gen, but more than likely that argument has something to do with the arguer attempting to find ways to put the console down, especially since they usually follow up or lead in with something about how the PS4 and next Xbox will be “true next-gen consoles.†Yeah, you can go play your Console Wars if you want, but I“d rather just play my games instead. So now that you know every definition of the word “generation,†can we stop all this next-gen bickering? There always seems to be a fight among gamers, and many of them think that to be considered “next-gen†you have to be über powerful compared to the last generation. People like to say that the Wii U isn“t next-gen, and yet it clearly is when taking the literal definition into account. But when you get rid of biased brand loyalty altogether, does any of this really even matter? Games are games, and they are meant to be enjoyed. So why don“t we all just enjoy the Wii U, PS4, and Xbox 360's successor and whatever games they provide for our gaming pleasure, regardless of what generation we think they“re in? In fact, I think I“ll go play an old SNES game now…

    New Call of Duty Coming Within the Year

    It sure hasn't been long since we got a Call of Duty game, and already Activision is ready to release another. During a post-earnings financial call, Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg revealed that they have plans to release a new entry before the year is up. Of course, Activision doesn't expect this new game to perform quite as well as their most recent entry, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, which broke sales records. "The Call of Duty franchise continues to set the bar for innovation and we expect the new Call of Duty game in development for 2013 to raise that bar even higher," said Hirshberg. "There is increased volatility this year due to the ongoing console transition, which makes predicting the future more challenging than during normal years in the cycle. For Call of Duty, consistent with our past practices, we are planning for the mainline release in Q4 to be down versus 2012." Who will be developing this unnamed Call of Duty title? That hasn't been announced yet, but it will probably be one of the five developers involved with the franchise: Infinity Ward, Treyarch, Raven Software, Sledgehammer Games, and Neversoft Entertainment. Are you ready for a new Call of Duty game?

    The Witcher 3 Might Not Be the Last

    It hasn't been that long since The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt was officially announced, and with the announcement, a statement made by head of development studio CD Projekt Red Adam Badowski about how the game would be the last. In the announcement press release, Badowski said "people may ask if this is really going to be the last Witcher game. Yes, it is. Why? Because we believe that we should end the series on a high note." However, It now seems that the developer might not be ready to end the entire series with the third game after all. What Badowski actually meant, according to Eurogamer, is that The Witcher 3 will simply be the game to end the current trilogy, not the series as a whole. CEO Adam Kicinski also stated that the "franchise will be continued." Joystiq contacted CD Projekt Red on the matter, and was told that "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will wrap up the saga of Geralt of Rivia, but we do leave open the possibility of returning to the Witcher world." With all this clarification, we should definitely be expecting more Witcher in the event that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt does well enough to warrant a sequel. Are you a fan of the Witcher series? Are you happy to hear the possibility of more Witcher games coming after the current trilogy ends?
  7. According to the website of their parent company ZeniMax Media, Bethesda Game Studios appears to be looking for programmers for an unknown upcoming project for next-gen consoles. Bethesda is, of course, responsible for such classics as Fallout 3 and the Elder Scrolls series, so it's possible that this could be in one of those universes. This could even support hints of a possible Fallout 4 being in the works, for all we know. The job listing on ZeniMax Media's website calls for a "Future Generation Console Programmer," and they will be looking for "experienced programmers to work on cutting-edge technology for an unannounced game on future-generation consoles." Anyone who wishes to apply must have no less than five years of game development experience, must have shipped several games, and must have "extensive experience" with PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Aside from that, having worked with DirectX 11 and spent some time with Bethesda's own games will really help your chances. With rumors of Sony's and Microsoft's next-gen consoles flying around in swarms, and with an upcoming PlayStation event expected to involve the announcement of the PS4, such a job listing can only make gamers more anxious for the arrival of these companies' new consoles to the next-gen party. What do you hope this unannounced game is? Fallout 4? Elder Scrolls VI? Or perhaps a new IP?
  8. Rumors for Sony's and Microsoft's next-gen consoles have been pouring in a lot lately, with anonymous sources spouting technical specs and others speaking of a 2013 release date. None of these rumors have been proven as of yet, but it appears that Sony's own CEO Kazuo Hirai has provided some interesting hints about his plans on timing for the PS4, suggesting that they might wait until Microsoft makes their move. "Why go first when your competitors can look at your specifications and come up with something better?".said Hirai when asked about console release windows. This train of thought mirrors Nintendo's reason for waiting on releasing their tech specs too early before releasing their own next-get console, so some could see this as a good business move. But keep in mind that Hirai hasn't officially stated this as a company decision of the PlayStation business, so it is unknown if his colleagues feel the same way. One senior source of CVG told them that it would be "ridiculous" to give the next Xbox another head-start when you consider how much ground Microsoft gained last time by launching the 360 a year before the PlayStation 3. Whether Sony does wait for Microsoft before releasing their new home console or attempts to gain more ground on them this generation remains to be seen. We'll surely hear some info in the months to come, though, and E3 seems like as likely a time and place as any. Do you expect Sony to wait for Microsoft before releasing their console as their CEO suggests or do you think they'll try releasing it before them to gain more ground?
  9. According to new job listings on Microsoft's official website, the company seems to be looking for a software development engineer. Apparently, “the team that shipped Kinect for Xbox 360†needs some new blood to help with the development of “the future of Natural User Input.†The listing also states that “The Xbox Platform Team is gearing up towards the next generation of Natural User Interface (NUI) technologies†and that a “successful candidate must be able to come up to speed with new technologies.†But that isn't the only listing that hints at a new version of Kinect. Another listing, this time for a senior electronic engineer, shows that Microsoft is looking for someone to help work on "designing, building and delivering the devices and the innovative solution for Xbox and various future NUI applications.†This listing also comes with a mission statement, which is to “re-invent entertainment, led from the living room, powered by the cloud, across multiple screens and best experienced on our devices.†We've heard rumors in the past about Microsoft working on a better Kinect for their next-gen console, and now it seems like these are more than just rumors, thanks to these job listings. Furthermore, there was also a recent patent by the company themselves for a device (the new Kinect) that could use infrared light to capture depth “to determine a physical distance from the capture device to a particular location on the targets or objects in the scene.†We already know for sure that Microsoft is thinking about the future of the Xbox, and with so much dedication put into Kinect, it's more than likely that they'll be making a new model for their next console. With so many signs pointing to both a new Xbox and a new Kinect, expect you next Xbox experience to be full of body-flingin' fun. Are you excited at all about the new Kinect? Did you like the original Kinect at all?
