They'd just play something else instead. Consumers are a fickle bunch, and should not be underestimated. To think they'll follow blindly is the first step to failure. Look at what happened to the PS3 at launch, for example. Sony thought Playstation fans would buy it regardless of price and launch date. Said fans bought 360s instead. Complacency kills.

It's a bit different this time. Everyone is tied into Live. All of your friends are on it. All of your DLC is on it.

Not being able to trade in games won't be that much of a big deal to people.


Wrong! I think it's only the elitest lar-de-dar pc gamers who are convinced it's a non issue! I think, many, including MS would be in for a shock! The fact that in here, the split on the other topic is 50-50 is reason enough to support that. Go and ask those in game/cex and see what the stats say! ;)

I have no sense of loyalty and regardless of live and dlc, I'll go to the platform that best suits my needs. Including pc if the benefits of console ownership are severely dented.

Elitest lar-de-dar pc gamers? Really? :| Just look at the other topic, most people wouldn't care :lol: and that's at buying a game at £40!

You're probably too old for Live to affect your console choice. I'd say the biggest usergroup are kids in highschool. They will buy what all their friends buy, just look at what happened to the 360 this gen.

Fair point, follow the crowd! It's those kids that turned me away from COD. I still reckon its underestimating the demand..... Time will tell, maybe!

An indication of where Microsoft may be heading for next-gen?

The codename has apparently leaked out and it's Durango and there's talk of a touch screen in the controller.

What a completely original idea, Microsoft! When did you turn into Sony?

I wonder if the next Xbox will have the exact same dash as the 360?

It seems Microsoft are having a conference on the 29th February but I really can't see them announcing at that unless they plan a first half 2013 launch. Halo 4 might make an appearance though.

What's this about an X12 conference on the 29th? Isn't it just the Xbox 360 Spring Showcase event? That doesn't seem like the place to reveal the Nextbox, it seems more like the sort of event where they don't even have a keynote, just a 'round up the games press to let them get hands-on with some upcoming games' kinda thing...

Looks to me to be squarely focussed on XBOX360, that. I doubt we'll get any next-gen news...but we can hope.

It'll probably be just to show off some upcoming XBLA, Kinect and 360 titles to the press so they can get their hands on them for previews. Maybe we'll get a few trailers and info about some new games or ones we haven't heard about in a while?

It would be cool if the had some nextbox info though :)

According to a post on Gaf the Spring showcase stuff is embargoed to the 5th of March. MS are publishing 10 or 11 games for the remainder of the year plus whatever else is announced in the future.

It'll use the Metro style but I reckon the OS itself will be much more robust, possibly even using Windows 8 as a base much like the version of Windows Phone slated for release late this year will.

I can see them replacing the quick launch with something like iOS/Windows 7 style app switching where instead of closing your most recent program it just puts into a sleep mode and if its stays on the Quick launch it resumes straightaway. Taking the game disc out would of course remove it from the quick launch section. The likes of Autolog will need to be able to exist outside of the game as well so you can recieve notifications of people beating your times etc.

One thing I think Microsoft really need to nail is highlighting new content that may be of interest to you. Its something only Amazon have come close to getting right.

There is no way Nextbox will come out this year with the economy as it is and Halo IV due.
