The Next Xbox to be revealed on the 26th of April

1 min read


According to the associate editor of gaming site CVG we can expect to see Microsoft’s response to the PlayStation 4 at an event being planned for the 26th of April.

Rob Crossley recently tweeted

Granted this is yet another one of those anonymous insiders but we do know that Microsoft are planning a new console and I can’t imagine they’ll allow Sony to have all the fun for very long so an April announcement makes sense.

VG247 has also previously dug up some details around an April event and a little bit of detective work has also uncovered the newly registered domain,

So 2 months exactly-ish until we see what Microsoft’s response to Sony will be.

I for one welcome our future robotic overlords

    I’m definitely interested… if only to troll Nick on twitter.. hehehe 😀 But seriously, I hope they put in a good showing, and that they’ll remember to keep clapping guy away from the mic.

    But here’s what I want to hear from Microsoft:

    a) A renewed push to delivering gaming content (not more superfluous app padding for xbox gold)

    b) Less focus on Kinect (Showcase some of it, but it’s shouldn’t be your primary focus)

    c) Xbox live plus? Free multiplayer on all accounts, and give gold subscribers a reason to subscribe, rather than just holding their online hostage, like a bunch of greedy $unts.




    g) Focus on Quality control – We don’t want RROD v2

    h) And for the love of all that’s good in gaming, don’t let the nextbox look as crap as the xbox and the xbox 360. Seriously, “aesthetics” is not just some business phrase.

    • BeatzByChrisBrown

      Yup, agreed. Most value added services MSoft provides are not available in SA. If this is what they will continuing focusing on then I’m rooting for the PS4.
      Also, requiring XBL gold to browse the internet is an epic facepalm!

      A bit touchy on the topic of the egssbawks huh?
      Although I can’t say I disagree with you.

      • Banana Jim

        True fans are always a lot more passionate. It might not always seem like it but my blood runs black and green. Once people stop caring, that’s when you need to worry….

        Take the Wii as an example.

        You never hear me talk about the Wii because I couldn’t care less about that console. The Wii-U on the other hand has peaked my interest, but the filthy successor to the GameCube gets nothing but an upturned Banana nose…

        • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

          hahaha. Upturned Banana nose. Made me giggle

    • DrKiller

      Why do you say you want GAMES?? Don’t you have enough games? o.O Metal Gear Rising, Crysis 3 and Tomb Raider that is coming 😛

      • Banana Jim

        I want to die in the bossom of games. When they lower my coffin into the ground or chuck me on the spit braai (you never know, shit might get real 50 years from now), I want them to cover my corpse with all my games…

  • Darth_Clericus_The_Ultimate

    That PS4 is a beast. Xbox have got a lot to compete with.

    • Banana Jim

      Don’t count them out yet; Microsoft has fostered a rabid and devoted fan base, and the power of Halo compels us all…. 😛

      • Mikhil

        IMO, screw Halo. I know it’s just me, but I am actually struggling to think of an Xbox exclusive, besides the Forza series, that I actually enjoyed. Halo bored me to death, gave up after an hour or so, Gears 2 Horde was an entertaining way to spend a Monday night, and Fable went from great to, ” I wanna divorce this bint, and kill the kids.” Come to think of it I’ve mostly played the multiplatform and Live games.

        • Banana Jim

          Fable 3… yeah… enough said about that one the better… :/

          • Darth_Clericus_The_Ultimate

            Dont say the F – word on the forums Jim. Aint nobody got time fo dat.

          • Banana Jim

            Sigh… It was weak… so very weak.

            And, the weirdest thing is, I liked the idea behind it. A member of the aristocracy (the son or daughter of the greatest leader they’ve ever had) must fight his own brother, and reclaim the throne… :/ How could they screw that up?

  • Admiral Chief Erwin

    Family of yours LC?

    • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

      As I said, we have a Rob but it aint this one lol.

  • Is that really what it looks like? ‘Cause it kind of looks like a coffin for the Xbox 360…

    • Banana Jim

      Nope that’s one of the mock-ups one of the magazines did a while back.

      • Oh OK, good to know. I agree with you comment on the aesthetics of the console.

  • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

    Crossley? Funny, we have a Rob in the family but it sure isn’t this Rob. Who is this impostor!?

  • FoxOneZA

    Expect another unveiling of yet another high-spec PC -____-

  • fred

    Might call it the HaFoGe Box ….. Halo ,Forza , Gears

  • Oh man! Can’t wait for the new Usher album!

  • John Jih

    I still beat my self on why i bought the EggsBox, even today. No more. And if you think they gonna gave a better system than Sony; pricing will be challenge for them. Its either they copy, risk, or lose. I bet they gonna do all three.
