RealGamerNewz - We Are Nex Gen

‘Spec’ulation Continues on Xbox 720

By Samuel Woodruff in Industry Talk

 

Some on the Internet are already speculating that Microsoft’s new and upcoming Xbox will set the standard for next-gen gaming.  While no official specs have been announced for the tentatively titled Xbox 720, currently still under the standard Microsoft codename ‘Durango,’ we have heard from several developers that the specs for rival Sony’s announced PS4 are going to be impressive enough that even PC developers will have to have a catching up period.  As we know, the current generation of consoles were fairly evenly matched in terms of processing power, with the slight edge going to Sony’s PS3.  Will Microsoft reverse the situation in its new console? Or will Microsoft’s rumored focuses on being “always connected” and a “replacement for the cable box” hold it back from being the pure gaming machine that Sony hopes to release in the PS4?  We’ll have to wait for official announcements before any comparisons can be made.
