Of course, going out of your way to create an expensive, anger-inducing fix that will do jack squat to solve the problem is a time-honored American tradition... nyeh, oh well. XD

I liked that article. It's written on an Xbox fan site, and it explains why always on is NOT a good idea. The author is not blindingly defending Microsoft.

That guy got fired by Microsoft so it was not Microsoft's message to people.

He was forced to resign, rather. We all know how this stuff works.

I thought I read somewhere where Microsoft finally said something about the rumors. I'll need to find them again to see if it's true.

Edit: nvm, it's rumors about it not having the always online feature.

Microsoft noting the outcry and hastily deciding to redesign things and remove that requirement, maybe...

He got fired because he made an ass of himself as an employee of his company. ANY company would have done the same.

Trust me, he was fired, lol.

So in case you haven't heard, the Next Xbox is set to be revealed on May 21.

In the meantime, have some more rumors:

Announcement: As teased yesterday, Microsoft will announce the new Xbox on May 21. According to Thurrott, this is to “better position the device against the PlayStation 4,” which Sony announced on February 20.

Full Details: Though it will be announced on May 21, Microsoft will fully detail the system, including launch lineup, at E3 in June.

Developer Platform: Microsoft will discuss the Xbox developer platform at the Build conference in late June, “based on clues on the Build website.”

Release Date: The next Xbox will launch in early November 2013.

Windows 8: The next Xbox is based on the “Core” version of Windows 8, which, according to Thurrott, “suggests a common apps platform” or “one similar to Windows 8.”

Price: The system will launch at two prices. The standalone model will cost $499. A $299 model, which requires a two-year Xbox LIVE Gold subscription plus an additional $10 a month, will also be released.

Yuma: Microsoft originally planned to offer a full version and an “entertainment” version of the next Xbox code-named “Yuma,” but put those plans on hold.

Blu-ray: The next Xbox wil use a Blu-ray disc reader.

Always-On: The next Xbox “must be internet-connected to use.”

Xbox 360: A third Xbox 360 revision will be released this year at a “slightly less expensive” price than previous models. Code-named “Stingray,” Thurrott said it is “not clear if this device is required because the next Xbox isn’t backwards compatible, or because Microsoft simply wants a low-cost entertainment box alternative.”



Nope, no, and no.

If I want to buy Windows 8, then I'll darn well buy Windows 8. o.O If I buy a gaming console, I -do not- care about making it into a computer. I don't want a Computer OS, with associated bugs and security problems, I want a Console OS. Keep it very, very light, with the minimal necessary functions to control and run the device properly.

*Shudders*

Not that this makes me any less inclined to get Microsoft's next console. You can't get worse than no desire at all.

I feel the same way.

I have no desire anymore for the next Xbox. I always knew I was getting a PS4, but was unsure of the next Xbox. Everything I'm reading about the next one, and what has happened to the 360, has made me not want one at all.

oh man that sucks if you cant play any single player games if you're not connected to the internet, if so, way to kill your console before it launches MS.

anyone want to take bets on 3rd party devs not making anything for this console?
