    Wow. The fact we have something so early makes for something BIG. If indeed they showcase the next Xbox I hope they concentrate more on hardcore gaming opposed to Kinect and other non-interesting gimmicks (at least for me).

    8 years and counting!

    Well, most of the solid rumors have it this thing is now taped and they have finally fixed whatever issue they had with chip yield. Which means it looks liek we are going to be getting a new toy at Xmas time.

    correction US will be getting a new toy at Xmas time. I doubt, after the world wide launch shortage they did last time, that this thing will see a PAL release for a few months. But who knows, if they can build enough stock up.

    Fun times ahead.

    Microsoft has been attending the Electronic Entertainment Expo video game-based trade show, better known as E3, since it started in the mid-1990s. This year's E3 will officially be held on June 11-13 in Los Angeles but typically Microsoft holds a pre-E3 press conference in LA the day before the trade show officially starts.
    Today, the Major Nelson website, run by Microsoft's Larry Hryb, did something that it has never done before. It posted a countdown clock that will reach zero when E3 2013 begins. Hryb's only statement on the post was, "And it’s on…"

    OH man. I'm planning to get the new consoles a year or so after launch and finish up my PS360 backlog in year 1 of their release, but the hype, the hype is gonna get me!

    Won't get to hype as they have slacked for the psst 4 years on the software side outside of multi plat games. They need to offer some exclusives for e to be interested. I am waiting.

    About time. I've been wanting a new console for a while now.I wonder if this will be kinect driven or will this hardcore exclusive console?

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    They'll have a bunch of 'hardcore' titles available at launch, I think that's pretty obvious . The kinect crowd don't buy a consoles on launch for the prices they debut at

    Well, that's depending on the price. You can also just throw in a low memory console with kinect. Do a little advertising and there you go. Plus you have your previous base that's gonna buy it if they see a familiar game. Too many variables.

    Better be a launch date and info on the new Xbox. I'm ready for some new hardware. Yo Mynd, what were the rumored specs for this thing again?

    The kinect hype has slowed down a bit, it sold fantastically well within the first few months but to shift their new console MS will depend on the hardcore gamer. Plus, with all the rumours and leaks it suggests they will have a pretty powerful beast. I'm expecting like $400

    Youre right though, they may offer a cheaper sku, barebones but with kinect - I'm not sure. Too many variables like you said

    I just hope they do away with the usual floating face tech demos taking up all of the console's memory and pre-rendered cutscenes. Show us the games you're actually working on. I don't think it's too much to ask.

    I plan on attending e3 this year only if they plan on unveiling the next Xbox and playstation4. It is best to attend e3 when a new console launch because it gives you a chance to speak to developers and game designers to learn the ins /out of each system.

    uuummmmm...Fried Beer iis a reality.

    I hope they have a the next xbox with NO kinect for a cheaper price but with the same hardware and stuff if possible, i don't wanna waste money on useless things ( same goes with SONY and ps4)

    I am still excited to see what they have been working on!

    Pretty much a given they will announce the xbox now lol.
