View Full Version : XBOX 2 set to come out November!
Bill Gates announced that it's set to ship this November. (if this is old news, then just delete this)
Well now it's been confirmed but it was always suspected, you got a link to the article?
is there a source by any chance?
yep....kinda figured that this would happen...heres the source if you want it.
Although November does look to be the month its coming out.. no where in that whole entire article does it say its coming in November.. it says at the end of 2005.
Just a note, that article says "this year" not November.
About September would be a good time, people in the UK buy their big presents 2-3 months before X-mas day so I think MS will catch a lot of sales in September.
May.. June.. July.. August.. September. wow if its in september then ill be a lot happier.
Why September why not summer? Then again it would sell a lot better in September!
idk you said september so i said september.. but most likely it will be november 15th.. the xbox1's anniversary.. that would be awesome.. Xbox1 nov. 15th 2001... 2002 xbox live.. 2005 xbox360.. but anyways i dont see people buying consoles in the summer to be any good because most of the people besides hardcore gamers will all be outside or on vacation doing stuff... Fall and winter would be the perfect time to release a console.. many people looking for stuff to do as it starts to get colder.. christmas coming around the corner.. little timmy wants a xbox360.. ok well get it for him for christmas.. it all makes sense.
why even september...I'd rather see a next gen. console at or near christmas time...
Though correct me if I am wrong...but if the Xenon comes out at the end of 2005, UK and JP shouldn't expect it for another few months...unless there doing a worldwide launch, correct me if I am wrong...
IF they dont do a worldwide launch i dont see other parts of the world getting it till 3-4 months later.. but why would they do a GLOBAL debute if they werent intending to do a global launch... thats just my theory.. but in november would be a good time to sell it.. so there will already be out to the public and they could start cranking out more consoles for the christmas season.. instead of having a shortage in the christmas and for the next couple of months. Earlier start before christmas season will result in better christmas sales.
I think XBox 360 is aiming for a worldwide launch, a christmas launch would definetly shift a LOT of consoles so I think it's a smart idea, I don't know how the Japanese market works out.
I think M$ will try a world wide launch. Remember M$ always says that they are doing things different.
They seem to be following segas footsteps with the DC so maybe it will come out on the same day 9-9-05 the DC came out on 9-9-99 (remmber it cause all of the 9s lol)
First Five Months
With all the controversy over which console is truly more powerful, the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360, we cannot compare Gears to Resistance, PGR3 to GT:HD but we can compare games that have been released in the same timeframe. The timeframe I have chosen is the first five months. Yes, I know, the PS3 isnít even three months old yet, but we do know some of the games that will be releasing. There are a lot of games thatís release dates are still up in the air like Lair, Eye of Judgment, and Heavenly Sword. These games I canít add to this article due to the lack of release info.
Before I begin, let me explain the format of this article. Iím not going to insert my opinion about the games. I will just be posting a picture and links to other images by the PSU staff and IGN. The list will start with the 360 exclusives first follow the PS3 Exclusives then finally Multi-Console or games that are very close to being practically the same game. Iím comparing next-gen versions of the games so if the exclusives are also on another console or last gen console this is Next-Gen vs. Next-Gen so the other versions should not be considered.
Also Its up to you to look up the games farther if you want more information on them. This article is mainly for comparing the graphical increase for the games within the first five months of their respective consoles life.
Please Note: Itís up to you to make your own decisions about the games and consoles. All games listed are at least released in the consoleís first five months of the consolesí life. If a game is released for both consoles but not released within the first five monthís of one consoles life the console with the gameís release outside of the consoleís first five months isnít included for that console.

OK in the spaces between the name of the game and links are supposed to be a picture of the game. Ill have to email you guys a copy of this so you guys can see what this looks like with the images. I know some of these images are from IGN but they have the best 360 game images.
IF you want just use the link and find random good images of each game from IGN and off our site.
