Xbox Event Possibly Coming in April
Filed under: MICROSOFT, XBOX 720

The day after Sony's huge PlayStation event this week, Eventcore registered the URL, and NeoGAF pointed out that Eventcore is the same team of event planners who put on Microsoft's E3 event last year.

Rumor is buzzing that Microsoft will be hosting a Nextbox event in April as a bit of a follow-up to Sony's PlayStation 4 revelation.

Of course that's just a guess, and we'll have to wait for the official statement from Microsoft before we can start planning our streaming sessions. If you had to guess when Microsoft will reveal their Nextbox, would you go with April or possibly a function at GDC in March?

Weill duh. Sony was first wait wasn't it Nintendo. They have to release it before Sony now. I can see it now over 5 revisions just to get it right again.

After going through several different xbox systems and paying the subscription bullshit for several years, I'm done with Microsoft. I wish they'd learn, but so many fucking people give them shitloads of money on Xbox Live, they will keep chuggin' that money train.

Never again. PS3 won this generation, in my book, and I only played it continuously for two months.

Fuck you, Xbox Live, and fuck your money-grabbin' purpose.

I will be very surprised if the PS4 and Xbox 720 (or whatever it's going to be called) don't release around the same time. If they have any sense, both companies will do whatever they must to make it happen.

Sony would have to be completely moronic to make the same mistakes they did with the PS3, and once again grant Microsoft's next entry a huge window of time to establish user-base and market-share before Sony's own entry. And Microsoft would have to be completely moronic to fail to realize why it is the 360 defeated the PS3 last generation, even despite the RRoD fiasco.

And on that note, it's also going to be interesting to see how the price-point comparison turns out. Another lesson we'll see which side has learned, and which side hasn't.

I just hope the Xbox 720 is designed better. I will never forget going through three 360's in one year, thanks to that fucking RROD. I did everything I could with those consoles, but they all failed. Thankfully Microsoft fixed things eventually.

The PS4 not being backwards compatible at launch and buyers having to wait for a "possible" emulator later is a big deal IMO, PS3 owners aren't going to want to get rid of their PS3 if the games aren't going to work on the PS4. I reckon many will wait for the emulator (if it happens).
If Xbox 720 is backwards compatible then fans will be more likely to buy it at launch and get rid of the 360.
