I'm looking forward to a revised Xboxone as I'm yet to jump in and a new version could be a decent place to start.

The only question is whether microsoft try and outmuscle Sony in the power race or just go for parity.

There's a whole quarter of the screen not filled with adverts in that picture.
Bloody amateurs.

Microsoft to host 'special' Forza event at E3

Is there a new Forza Horizon game coming this year?

The event is set to take place at LA's Petersen Automotive Museum during the afternoon of Monday, June 13, just hours after its E3 press conference earlier that morning. Fans attending Microsoft's E3 FanFest are all invited, with the event expected to celebrate the announcement of the next Forza title.

Microsoft announced back in March that it would be revealing "the next Forza game" at this year's E3, and confirmed the Lamborghini Centenario as the game's cover car.

I hope this comes with a back compatibility announcement for Horizon 1/FM4, but with all the licensing for all the car brands I doubt it.

I'm sorta hoping it's a third pillar to go alongside Motorsport and Horizon.

Forza:PGR basically.

This podcast guy seems to think a slightly upgraded Xbox coming and an MS 'chromecast' thingy... Meh.

Last time I'm listening to this guy, he's no idea whats going on really.

A VR Xbox next year? I reckon IF it happens it will be a deal with Occulus Rift working on a new Xbox exclusively.

This guy apparently knows MS and Windows but clearly has no understanding of what Phil Spencer is trying to do, Unify Xbox and PC gamers yes, but Media streaming? if its IS mentioned as part of new X1, it'll be brief.

Info from the podcast, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQnTcwe1t5U , starts at 6 mins -

Xbox Nano - will be a streaming device similar to Chromecast and Amazon's Fire TV. Pricing point may be around $100.

Xbox Slim - Slightly bigger. He does not use the name slim, but from what it sounds like that would be the case

Xbox 10 TFlop - looks to be in the works, but doubtful to be announced at E3. Instead he is hearing Spring 2017 as a release date. Virtual Reality and 4K Video playback will be a thing. He says this leak comes outside of Microsoft so its no guarantee.

Xbox Interface coming to PC, and Xbox + PC will be a big theme at E3 as more stuff is coming to PC.


He didn't say the xbox was going to have an 'apps focus' just that they wanted something more relevant to cord cutters and less bulky.

The *focus* for xbox is still games, he said they're VERY aware not to repeat the reveal TVTVTV.


Tom Warren -

All I can say is that there will be Xbox hardware that's 40% smaller than the current one.

I'm massively out of date here is 10tflops a lot :shifty: .

Should I be amazed or disappointed?

Xbox Nano makes a lot of sense, I've been saying for years that Microsoft needed to get into the Smart TV game, Google, Apple and Amazon are just running away with it right now.

Slim sounds good, the original XBO was a rushed design hopefully they've come up with something sleek and iconic.

Xbox Two for 2017 sounds ridiculous (and believe me, 10 teraflops means next-gen), this is way too early.

Who could have predicted that...

What exactly would an Xbox media stick do? Is it just going to let you play Windows 10 games on your TV and perhaps stuff like Netflix but they've used the Xbox name?

Yes?

Basically the cheapest way of getting Microsoft's services onto your TV. Think Amazon Fire TV/Stick.

UWP apps and I'm guessing streaming games from your PC or Xbox.

Kotaku are also joining on these rumours. Also said that Halo will launch on PC also from now on too.

Sources: Smaller Xbox One Coming This Year, More Powerful Xbox One In 2017

Microsoft is preparing at least two new Xbox models for release in the next two years, sources tell Kotaku. Later this year we’ll see a cheaper, smaller Xbox One, and next year Microsoft will release a more powerful version of their premiere console.

The 2017 Xbox, which is codenamed Scorpio, will have a more powerful GPU, according to three people familiar with this model, speaking anonymously because they were not authorized to speak about Microsoft’s plans. We hear that it will also be technically capable of supporting the Oculus Rift and that Microsoft is pursuing a partnership with Oculus. As for 2016, sources have told us there’s at least a more compact version coming by year’s end. One source believed it will include a larger 2TB hard drive, double the capacity of the most spacious current model. We’re expecting Microsoft to announce the more compact machine at E3 next month. (Kotaku’s Jason Schreier and Kotaku UK’s Keza MacDonald both independently corroborated this information.)

When asked about these plans, Microsoft and Oculus representatives did not provide comment.

The two consoles form part of a wider Microsoft strategy, codenamed “Project Helix” according to one source, to converge Xbox and Windows. For a while now Microsoft has been clear that they want their two prestige brands to work together, as they’ve announced big new exclusives like Halo Wars 2 and Sea of Thieves for both Xbox One and PC. Developer sources have told us that Microsoft’s new mandate is to release future games–including the flagship Halo series–on both platforms. The recently-cancelled Fable Legends, which was playable across Windows 10 and Xbox One, was one of the first games to implement this strategy.

In addition, people familiar with Microsoft’s plans have told Keza that the company is moving toward an iterative approach for their consoles, not unlike Apple. Sources say that instead of one hardware revision every five years or so, as has been the case with previous console cycles, Microsoft plans to move towards an incremental model, with more frequent hardware releases and games that are both forwards and backwards compatible across both Windows 10 and different Xbox models.

We hear that the folks at Xbox have yet to finalize the specs for 2017’s Scorpio, although they briefed third-party publishers on the device during a secret event last week, according to a source.

Development sources raised the concern that although the Scorpio model will be capable of supporting 4K resolution thanks to its GPU upgrade, as of right now there is no planned upgrade to the console’s I/O transfer speed–the speed at which the console can transfer assets from a disc or hard drive to its memory. This could mean long loading times for games specifically designed to support 4K, due to their larger assets.
