The Next Xbox Is ‘Xbox One’

Posted on May 21, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

Microsoft has revealed the next generation Xbox, now known as Xbox One, clearly Redmond means business because they are coming out with the bat swinging. Not only did we see the console, controller and dashboard within the first six minutes of the presentation but the console maker also featured the ability to watch television instantly.

Xbox One’s theme appears to be “instant”, giving the user the ability to switch between the dashboard, live television, movies and internet search with just a few words. The console’s user interface is rather familiar, looking strikingly similar to the Metro style featured in the Windows 8 and Xbox 360 experiences. According the PR spin they want to make sure that the Xbox is the hub for everything we do.. Hasn’t this always been the target of the Xbox brand?

Check out the first screenshots of the hardware, user interface and controller after the jump. We’ll bring you more as it develops.Read More

Xbox Durango Production Diagrams Supposedly Leak Online

Posted on January 22, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

The rumored Xbox Durangomay have gotten its innards spilled with the supposed leak of an internal planning diagram of the console’s architecture. Not only does the document give us a look under the hood of Microsoft’s next generation console, revealing several secrets, but this latest leak jives with the rumor that Redmond has begun test fabrication of the system’s innards.

Contained within the next Xbox will be a quadcore processor  based on AMD’s 1.6GHZ APU technology, 8GBs of DDR3 ram, an 800 MHZ graphics processor, support for N Networking, a Blu Ray Drive (although it is unknown if it will play movies) and  an HDMI 1.4 port capable of outputting a maximum of 4K resolution.

That sure is a lot of technical jargon but it suggests that the next Xbox will be future proofed in order to provide developers with ample room to create games before hitting technological ceilings. For reference the Xbox 360 only has 512MB of ram and that console has produced some of the best looking games of the last year.  The 360 only started to hit technical limitations after five years or so, the Durango’s specs could rival current mid-range gaming desktops!
