    XBOX720 Announcement Pushed Back A Month!?!?!?

    https://twitter.com/thurrott/status/317348357150482432

    That April Xbox announce? Pushed back a month.
    "We don't provide the 'easy to program for' console that (developers) want, because 'easy to program for' means that anybody will be able to take advantage of pretty much what the hardware can do, so then the question is, what do you do for the rest of the nine-and-a-half years?"

    Should just wait until E3 then. If true of course.
    It's funny that in this day in age people can steal as long as they have a reason too. Even if that reason is created by the thieves themselves.

    That's what I was thinking. May 21st is the new date, apparently.

    So he started the rumor of a conference in April, then breaks the news of a delay? Sounds like crap to me! 2 questions though:

    1. From above: Was the conference ever officially announced?
    2. Has he ever leaked anything in the past?

    I hope they just wait til E-3. Draw it out as long as possible. Anything they announce early, like BC, could potentially damage xbox360 sales.

    Seeing as it was never officially announced this should mean very little to anyone o.o

    I'm expecting to be blown away when they do come out though

    Well I wasn't going to expect them to all-of-a-sudden come out with an announcement but they were being a little too quiet...seems more like that they are trying to one-up Sony and it's possible that they are thinking that if developers are liking what Sony is doing that maybe they forgot to add something? Not certain but a push back generally means they had to redo something. Maybe, maybe not. We'll probably never know.

    Does it surprise you? Microsoft is garbage. I've I had the money when purchasing my computer, I would have FOR SURE opted for the MacBook Pro instead of the Toshiba that I got.

    The only way I'll be picking up the next Xbox is if it's backwards compatible, and the price isn't redic. I'm currently thinking about picking up a white 360 and swapping the 4GB HDD with a 320GB (To go with my white console theme), because I really enjoy XBL and it's nice to be able to play with IRL friends on there. But if the 720 is backwards compatible, and isn't too pricey, I'll be grabbing that too. (Assuming it's in white ofcourse hehe ^__^)

    This is one thing I find funny about the people on this forum.

    First they say MS should shut up and focus on their own products.

    That is what MS is currently doing.

    Now people complain that they are being too quiet and should start doing something (nevermind the endless amount of unsubstantiated rumors they are willing to put out there and treat with any kind of legitimacy.)

    I guarantee you if MS does their conference (the one before E3) in exactly the same way sony did it they would catch flak for it.

    So obviously the only way to go is to do a better announcement.

    Problem is with the date supposedly being pushed back, now being so close to e3, it makes you wonder how worthwhile such an event would be. They are obviously not going to blow their entire load before their e3 press conference. So that brings up the question, why even bother with a pre E3 event?

    Yes, because Microsoft is clearly responsible for Toshiba's computer, and not toshiba themselves.
