post your news regarding the next gen systems here.
This information has already been posted, but I figured it should be in this sticky.
From the latest issue of GameInformer:
-Not too much info, but the Cell processor has been clocked in at 4 GHz, and projected to run as fast as 4.6GHz
Xenon - Right now the official name, it could be changed, has been set as XBox 360.
-XBox 360 will not ship with a hard drive, but one can be purchased and installed in the machine.
-Possibility of a personal video recorder in the 360, kinda like an XBox with TiVo
-Console will be much smaller than the XBox
-Standard 360 controllers will be wireless
-360 will use a regular DVD drive instead of the HD-DVD (Personally I think this will change)
Revolution - New controller design - touch screen pad. No analog stick, no shoulder buttons, just a touch screen.
Revolution Rumor Report
IGNcube's Nintendo "Revolution" FAQ
PS3 owns all, but i'll prolly buy nintendos when its price goes down.
BUT BLU-RAY IS HUNG LIKE A HORSE!!!!
AND SO SONY
i heard that they are going to make a ps3 with a umd burner for the psp, so u can burn your own music and movies on to blank umds but this is prolly fake cuz the guy that said it is kinda fruity
I think the new Nintendo console will truly be something special. The fact that the specs are kept so tightly lipped and the control interface is still being developed shows that the big N are ready to totally take the next egn console battle to sony and microsoft. As it stands, the DS offeres something far more unique than the PSP which really doesn't offer more than a 3g mobile phone with a good plan (regarding the movie and music content). The Wifi out of the box option on the Revolution is also interesting as in some countries such as Australia, not everywhere is broadband capable (let's face it, online gaming blows when done over dial up). In short you have a level playing field with online gaming, and what's more, no subscription fees. I have a sneaking suspicion too that it's entirely possible the revolution with be compatible with gamecube controllers for gamecube games if they're as serious about the backwards compatibility as they are on everything else with this console. All in all, I'll be very interested to see what May brings in terms of news on the new console.
I gotta admit, if Revolution goes with touch screen controllers, there is a 90% probability that it will be the first Nintendo home console that I don't buy. I need to feel the push of the buttons, and I really like button sensitivity.
This isn't for making comments about the specs, or discussing what you THINK the specs will be, this is specifically to post news and announcements about the specs of the next gen systems.
If you want to discuss things we'll need to make a new thread Thanks!
well, the Revolution will be using DVDs now....and supposedly 1 inch wide...from what i read at gamesarefun
so far both the PS3 and XB360 is not confirmed to have a HD already installed....XB360 might not have one at all...PS3 will be a added feature if not already installed....Revolution will not have a HD already installed (dont know about it being a added feature)
From IGN's PS3 fact page
Now I knew the PS3 would support HD but before this piece of info I thought only Microsoft was forcing devs to support it now that I know sony is too along with BLU-Ray it makes it hard to choose anything else from an HD perspective.
From IGN's new Revolution channel,
Im very let down by this. I was hoping for a system that would at least sound like it could compare in SD gaming with the ps3 and 360. Only 104MBs of RAM. I would like to see at least 256MB. Also, the flash memory will not be able to be used as ram, its too slow anyways.
I'm retiring this thread because the 360's and PS3's specs are now well-known, and we don't need a sticky for just one system.
