Nathan Brown of Edge on next generation XBOX:
Ubisoft Montreal is hard at work on ‘target boxes’ based on the intended specifications of Microsoft’s Xbox 360 successor, according to an Edge source. Delivery of the first iteration of genuine devkits, running custom hardware, is expected to reach studios before Christmas, and all signs point to the finalised console arriving at retail in late 2012.
I have heard critics say that they are not “ready” for a next generation console because the current one is “fine”. I could make an argument that this is always true because you don’t know what is possible until you have it.
As far as I know there still aren’t make Xbox 360 games that utilize 1080p. Graphics on the PC have easily passed up the current consoles, and I would love to see optical media done away with1.
