Microsoft's next console

1 min read
13 has been gazing into their local crystal ball and have come up with what they expect the next Xbox which is expected to release in 2011 will be like.

This would be much harder to do for the PlayStation or Nintendo as they don’t follow the standard PC architecture as Microsoft do. Anyway straight to the list…

  • CPU/GPU – Integrated chip with 16 x 5GHz processor cores, 32 x 2GHz graphics cores
  • Memory – 8GB GDDR8
  • Media – Dual-format HD-DVD/Blu-ray drive for backwards compatibility and movies
  • Storage – 4TB hard disk for online game (and movie) delivery
  • Built-in camera – for gesture-based control
  • Built-in microphone – for voice-recognised control
  • The Microphone sounds like a terrible idea, I really am not sure about how much I would like talking to my games, the camera is pretty obvious I think as well.

    So what else do you think they are missing? I wouldn’t mind having mini LCD screens on the controller which provided me with extra info on the game as well as a place to read my ingame messages.
