OMFG! LINK HAS A LIGHTSABER! hmm…
Link, I think you forgot something
how did this even hAPPEN
And the price will be somewhere around $700 with the hardware listed - the CPU and GPU are shit though (slow clock speeds). No used games, and required online? Well that, in-combination with the price guess, will mean very few people will buy the system. And honestly, given how many people buy used games, don’t have fast Internet and that don’t have more than $500 to spend on a console, MS will fall out of the game market - not fall as in ‘Oh! I tripped’, fall as in they’ll fall off a mountain. Honestly, you’d be better off with a Wii U, the price vs hardware is a good deal, and it has The Legend of Zelda series for it. Additionally as far as cost goes, there’s only so much high tech hardware they can put into a system before the consumer price gets jacked well above the budget of 90% of gamers, which is why MS will need to stop catering to all the fucking retards who only care about graphics & hyper-competetive multiplayer and learn how to be as successful as Nintendo is with the game industry.
Edge Reports on New Xbox: No Used Games, Internet Required
Games will be purchased with one-time-use activation codes, meaning the sole person who uses the code first is the only person who can play the game on their console.
While the console’s experience now fully lies with internet compatibility, physical games will still be available. Games will now be on blu-ray format for the next Microsoft console, meaning 50 gigs of space for games now.
The console holds AMD eight-core x64 1.6GHz CPU, a D3D11.x 800MHz graphics solution and 8GB of DDR3 RAM. The console will also ship with a newer version of the Kinect.
Place your bets now on how fast Microsoft will sink.

After seeing on many websites people talking about the recent Nintendo Direct update Satoru Iwata gave on new additions to the Wii U, I took it upon myself to watch this video. In this video, Iwata explains about smoothing out the Miiverse functions de to complaints/recommendations from fans. He also explains that there will be two system updates due to Wii U complaints, one in the Spring of 2013 that will allow for faster access to the Wii U menu, and the other in Summer of 2013 that will allow for faster load times for software titles and game discs. He explains that there will be new additions and revisions to the virtual console function, including selling games for a mere $0.30 for a promotional period. Iwata also showcases new Wii U Games that will release this year from March onward, which will balance the initial lack of a strong lineup of Wii U games.
The best part of this announcement is two The Legend of Zelda titles that are currently under production by Nintendo. The first is a High Definition Remake/Revision of the 2003 GameCube classic, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. Based on this video, the game will have:
-A different engine (not directly stated but given based on the changes),
-A different lighting system,
-High Definition textures (whilst supposedly keeping the ‘original’ feel of the game),
-It will support the game being played on the Wii U GamePad if need be,
-Gameplay will be tweaked in a way (one can ONLY speculate at this point) to possibly include an active sea chart on the GamePad *rumor* so the player may see where they are sailing, sailing in and of itself might be tweaked, as the sailing aspect has received criticism in the original game *rumor*, and the combat system/enemies may be tweaked to make the gameplay more challenging *rumor,
Some of these things are inferred or implied based on stated changes to the remake and based on the pictures of the remake, thigs that have no concrete evidence aptly have *rumor* next to them based off of chief complaints on The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker.
The second game is The Legend of Zelda: Wii U (tentative title), the next official installment of the Zelda series, there were no visuals of the game, no plot or story information, the only information that was given in this video was that the goal of the game was to “Rethink the conventions of Zelda” and the two thigs listed to be ‘rethought’ was “Complete dungeons in a certain order” and “Playing by yourself”. From this bit of information, it is implied/inferred that the next Zelda game will have:
-The gameplay option to complete segments of the game out of order (non-linear), however the degree to which the game will be non linear is still up in the air, will it be like The Legend of Zelda or will it be similar to the first part of the adult segment of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, or will it be different even than either of those two?
-A Multiplayer mode, however what *Type* of multiplayer is not specified, there is not information to determine if it will be LAN multiplayer, or online Multiplayer, whether it will have Competative Multiplayer, Cooperative Multiplayer, AND/OR a Cooperative Campaign. But it is a given from this announcement that Nintendo is rethinking playing Zelda by yourself, which means some degree of Multiplayer will be implemented.
There is no other information on The Legend of Zelda: Wii U (tentative title) garnered from this announcement. So everyone who is interested: wait until 11-13 June, 2013 when Nintendo is guaranteed to announce and showcase The Legend of Zelda: Wii U (tentative title) at E3 2013. So a reminder to everyone that is a Zelda fan to watch E3 2013 on your TVs/Computers, as it isn’t open to the public, for more information about the next Zelda game.
Edit: On a side note, I figured this pertinent to put in here. This video is a BRIEF explanation/preview of things that are going to happen for the Wii U ONLY! This video is NOT E3, it will not be an in-depth analysis/explanation of everything Nintendo is doing in 2013. This video is NOT about the Nintendo 3DS, so I would prefer that people not complain about the video not talking about 3DS-related topics, like the proposed The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask remake for the 3DS. *This video does NOT talk about Microsoft or Sony’s new systems, so keep your childish, ignorant, uneducated comments about MS or Sony being ‘better’ than Nintendo to yourself and your moronic friends.* This video does NOT alk about nor compare Zelda games to one another, so please keep the flaming/favoritism absent. Lastly, please do NOT complain about Satoru Iwata not beig fluent in English, I can without a doubt guarantee that he speaks better English than 99% of us English speakers can speak Japanese, so save the cynical comments for your personal journals/diaries.
