The Sony PlayStation 4 has been enjoying free reign in the press as the only fully announced next generation console from the video game industry’s next hardware cycle, but not for long. The original April 27 date has been officially pushed back to May 21, 2013 numbering the PS4’s days of being the only confirmed next-gen system extended but running out.
According to Xbox 720 leak sources close to the project the game system will not use the name “Xbox 720” but instead bring on a new name (this is not finalized yet). The system is also reported as being a shift for the console manufacturer away from PowerPC chips and into the AMD x86 ease-of-development world which PC and PlayStation 4 currently share. Game developers may be able to truly capitalize on innovative ideas and hardware features next-generation with such a shift occurring across the entire spectrum of games, but will it remains to be seen whether or not the original brands identities and unique feels will begin to die when this takes place.
Currently this is all to be taken as Rumor and Speculation for the time being as Microsoft has refused to confirm/deny any information regarding the Xbox 720 until their own official reveal has taken place, which money has it is going to be May 21, 2013.

Gadgehit reports this rumor, or rather states the potential of it as being up in the air who will be making Microsoft’s next console. They feel a Microsoft branded, third-party home console will be somehow wrapped up in the future of the Xbox experience.
After pointing to the RROD (Red Ring of Death) which has plagued many Xbox 360 consoles at launch and even merits mentioning to this day, Gadgehit proceeds to discuss the fact that Microsoft has already begun a deal with Samsung to have such an arrangement take place with the Microsoft Surface 2.
Check out our RealGamerNewz Podcasts where we often discuss the latest and give more in-depth analysis on Microsoft and Sony’s statements about Next Gen going forward.
For more on this rumor in full head over to Gadgehit.com who argue a good point that Microsoft should probably look to a third party like Samsung for reliable hardware next-gen, regardless if this rumor is true or not.
