This has to be joke....no disc drive.

and games on cards???.....anti piracy measure?

or to stop second hand sales?


this is the only rumor that makes sense, considering the way current gen xbox went. As to anti piracy measure, I don't think you will need that on cards. Most probably these cards will be just feeders, to help people save the trouble of downloading. Like, pay couple dollars to get a card with downloaded data of any new game, and then purchase it over marketplace. No installations required, just copy the cards data to xbox's inbuilt ssd. No antipiracy measures, no second hand sales. Just like online pass tagged to your gamertag and console. Yep, there are issues with security, but still it will be very effective, than having to design another DRM-type sh*t. Plus this gives freedom to hardware designers to choose any console design, may be even a companion cube (yes, I know, rights are with valve; I just used it as an example).

I was talking about this a month ago too, as a way to go for next-box. Makes more sense than having ten times better hardware, twice the costs, and all. All companies want the share of casual market, and I don't think those farm-ville players give a rat's a*s about anti-aliasing, or full HD native games. Embed Kinect, to xbox, make it small enough like a set-top box, price it for 300$ and you have a winner.

Also, that project cars type games will be perfect then. there are guys like me who will throw the disc right after they finish SP. 30$ for first month subscription, and 5$ afterwards if you wish to play longer and achieve 100 % completion or try coop, perfect solution. No one feels like they got ripped off.

Still this is all just speculation based on rumors heard from lots of different sources.

Next gen will definitely put an end to used sales. Then the internet will be in an uproar,and then finally it would be accepted as a standard :P

2$ for carts holding 20+GB data. Sounds reasonable, I guess.

Any chance these cart guys providing the same to Sony, for the Vitas?

:doh: 2$ for the data, not for the card. :doh: Obviously, card has to be bought separate.When made in bulk, it should not cost more than 20$ though, so can be included in xbox bundle easily. Just like, you get this subscription card in set top boxes.

Ok, so I have to go to a shop with the card I have with me and ask the guy there to copy data in it? That's more convenient than fetching milk in a jar from a dairy.

Inconvenient than having to stand in line on day 1 for hours, to buy a disc which is prone to all sorts of scratches and stuff. Sure! <_<

I think the BD did very well to curb this issue. It's coated with a scratch resistant layer...holds pretty good!

The guys at Sony said that they won't be releasing a new playstation soon as the PS3 still has life in it. They said they will keep working on the PS3 and PS Vita for now. As for XBox I think Microsoft has confirmed that they have been working for a new console.
So there are possibilities for an XBox release but I don't think we are going to have any PS soon.

Unreal Engine 4 Demo Could Be Displayed With Xbox 720 Announcement
New information has surfaced from a legitimate industry insider who says that the reason Epic had an NDA and closed off showings of the Unreal Engine 4 was because it's aimed to be on display at this year's E3 alongside the announcement of the Xbox 720 (or Trinity or whatever people want to call it).

The news comes courtesy of Now Gamer, who reports that EEDAR President and CEO Greg Short mentioned to them that...
"From a marketing standpoint it would stand to reason that any announcement around Unreal 4 or other major upgrades to engine middleware providers will occur very closely to the announcement of new hardware."

"Since the majority of new features will be designed to maximise these devices they would not be able to promote that fact until the hardware itself had been unveiled." "Everyone will be looking to E3 this year to see what is announced (if anything!)."


That actually sounds about right and it would make perfect sense as to why Epic would prevent press and licensees from publicly talking or revealing details about the Unreal Engine 4. What's more is that VP of Epic, Mark Rein, has stated that the Unreal Engine 4 that they will be showing off will make the Samaritan demo look feeble, which is no small feat given that the demo was running in real-time on real hardware, requiring three over-clocked Nvidia 580GTX cards. Supposedly, this year, the same demo was optimized to run on just one Nvidia Kepler prototype card.

The news and rumors for next-generation home consoles has skyrocketed in the past six months and with Nintendo's Wii U launch looming for a fall release it does seem likely that Microsoft may announce something at this year's E3, given that Sony has adamantly stated that they will not be announcing anything at this year's Electronics Entertainment Expo.

Then why you so scared of new systems like they come with herpes.
The evolution cannot be stopped, there is already a decline in HW sales YoY. Retailers are losing money and if there is price drop, the sales revenue will start shrinking and with growing market saturation manufacturers will start losing more.
But you can still fap on the zombie-adventure, giant bird, platformer games, none of them have a release date and another game which is not even announced.

guys what could people possibly choose................ ps3 move over kinect or kinect over ps3 move ............so may be the developments might be based on these features cos i read somewhere that there is no game till date that can use the resources of ps3 completely....may be the entire focus will be on motion capturing on both the ends

Would you like to pay Rs 25k-40K for new hardware just to play same games you can play on current hardware??Dont bring in advance graphics thing here ....these games are looking great and beside it would take some time for new hardware's potential to be tapped anyways

Sly has a release date and also most of them are releasing this year only ...you would be really wrong if you believe they not coming this year....

I understand the market trend here and you may be right about it but as a gamer on ps3 i can give you plenty of reasons of why i feel ps3 is still got legs......they may launch new ps4 but whats the use when most of their top studios are still working on ps3......

OK. Reasons as in facts or assumptions?

And on 25-40k part, didn't you contradict yourself that you will buy PS4 if these games gonna come there?
You love a game and its not on the platform you own, you buy that console, its as simple as that. Now if I come to know that GTA is gonna be wiiU exclusive, I will buy the console day-1. Period.

Reasons as in facts...4 great exclusives game coming this...and possible more if rumors are to believed....what more can i ask for atleast now from my console...

btw you really missing the point here ....I will be buying PS4 reluctantly for these games...not out of pleasure...same way you will have to buy wiiu just for GTA....but you have a choice of buying for the console you already own and save quite money as well.

Job Post Hints At PlayStation 4 Development
If you were worried about the abundance of Xbox 720 and Wii U announcements and rumours, then thinking that the PlayStation 4 could be running a bit behind - a new job postings suggest that this is far from the case.
The first one is for a Sony Computer Entertainment America position, with the company looking for an intern to work for 12 weeks - paid - as part of its "Next Gen. teams." You'll need some pretty hefty qualifications - and no doubt need to sign an even weightier non-disclosure agreement - to get the temporary position, but for anyone wanting an insight into what Sony has planned for the future, it'd be a dream summer job.
The other position is up on Develop and is thought to be linked with Guerilla Games (due to a very similar careers post on the Guerilla site), the company behind the Killzone series. The job posting also touts that the Art Director will be working "exclusively with an industry leader, on next gen technology with major IPs in the pipeline."
Considering Killzone has always been a PlayStation exclusive line of games, it seems likely that Guerilla knows something we don't about future development of the console series. Next-gen would certainly imply a fourth in the line-up.
While Nintendo is thought to be almost ready to release the Wii U, perhaps doing so towards the close of this year, Microsoft and Sony are expected to let their next-generation systems hit the shelves in 2013, probably towards the end of the year.
E3 2012 is now expected to see big announcements, coming from all three major console manufacturers.

Microsoft to debut new version of Xbox in 2013
SEATTLE: Microsoft Corp will release the next version of its Xbox console in 2013 at the earliest, as the company squeezes at least one more year of sales out of its current model, said two people with knowledge of the matter.

The company may show the successor to its Xbox 360 in June 2013 at the E3 conference and put it on sale that same year, said the people, who declined to be named because the plans are confidential. David Dennis, a company spokesman, said earlier today that Microsoft won't discuss new Xbox hardware at this year's E3, quelling speculation that the device would be unveiled at the 2012 show.

Microsoft's Xbox 360, bolstered by the Kinect motion-sensor accessory, had its best year of sales in 2011 -- the console's seventh on the market. Announcing the next model too soon risks hurting orders for the current lineup, and new consoles typically lose money for their first few years. The Xbox 360 is profitable, giving the company incentive to keep it on store shelves for a longer period.

"They're still selling a lot of Xbox 360, and they're making money," said Michael Pachter, an analyst at Wedbush Securities Inc in Los Angeles. "I don't think the world needs them to put a new console out just because we're bored."

Sales growth Microsoft's entertainment division, which includes the Xbox, posted a 45 per cent sales gain to $8.91 billion in the fiscal year that ended in June. The Xbox 360 outsold Nintendo Co's Wii and Sony Corp's PlayStation 3 in 2011, and also sold better than any other TV-connected devices, including DVD players and home-theater systems, Dennis said.

"There will be no talk of new Xbox hardware at E3 or anytime soon," Dennis wrote today in an e-mailed statement. He declined to say when Microsoft would release the next model. "For us, 2012 is all about Xbox 360."

Microsoft has no reason to put out a new console soon, Pachter said. He estimates that the company makes about $115 of profit on the $300 Xbox 360, a model with a hard drive.

Pachter expects Microsoft to release the next version at the end of 2013 or beginning of 2014. The company will probably look at competitive pressure and sales in the current year to determine timing, he said.

Nintendo, meanwhile, is due to release a new machine called the Wii U later this year. Sony will probably update the PlayStation around the same time Microsoft puts out a new Xbox, Pachter said.

okay....hopefully this E3 both gives their best show....last few E3 have been really poor by both Sony and Microsoft....Sony specially they have so many stuffs and worst part is they will start announcing them few weeks or days before E3 only.... I mean seriously keep it for the show instead they talk about sales sales and more sales... :doh:
