View Full Version : Next-Gen Xbox on MTV

Thursday, May 12 will be the first showing of the next Xbox and the first footage of the next generation videogames.

http://xbox.ign.com/articles/603/603151p1.html

I don't quite fully understand why the console will make it's debut on the station that is suppose to be music oriented, although obviously not, but it will be cool to see some actual footage.

Alot of their target audience (18-25 males, or whatever) probably watches MTV. I guess that's what they are thinking.

Kane Knight

It's a smart move. They want more exposure, MTV will give them mainstream exposure.

And while you're right that MTV's supposed to be about music, looking at the lineup it's clearly not, and this is on par with the rest of the non-music crap.

Now all they need is some mainstream appeal. Let's see if they can get more than five games that the average fan gives a shit about.

I don't doubt they're capable of it. The nike commercial using the engine from the xbox, was amazing, and they announced that their system would be capable of much more than that, and would be better.

DS
04-14-2005, 01:25 AM
Their are pictures going around of what might be the next Xbox controllers. The only reason they are believable is because of pictures from Ourcolony that look very similar. In the pictures they got rid of the white and black button, as rumored, and look like there are some shoulder buttons over the triggers. Also, there is no slot for the memory cards that hint at the fact that the Xbox 360 will come with an external HDD that can be taken with you. Oh, and they're wireless.

The Nike commercial wasn't using any engine from any of the consoles and Microsoft wouldn't have said anything about the system capabilities like that guy said.

The official name, reported by GamesIndustry.biz, is Xbox 360. The console is said to have a concave look, as if it's "sucking in its cheeks". Along with that it will have a white/platinum look to it.

Take it for what it's worth right now but it's a pretty reliable source.

As of now, that is the closest thing to the actual Xbox 360. Although it's still a rumor, the growing speculation makes this seem less likely to be a fake. Take it for what it is though. We only have until May 12 to find out.

Release dates, special features, and first party titles are going to determine the winner of the next console race. X-box 2 and PS3 are going to be very near the same power. It's going to be a lot easier for companies to port over titles, which means less exsclusives, provided Sony and Microsoft aren't going to attempt to pay off companies to only make games for them.

Either way, this should be the craziest and closest console race ever.

And those screens are renders of what games are probably going to look like. Not fact, but probable.

I'd say around $35 or $40. But even if that's true, you know how much money they lose on systems? I don't think the "milking" is the correct term here.

Seeing this thread again reminds me, if those are anything close to the actual controllers I for one will be trying PS3. If it ain't broke don't fix it. The design for the smaller XBox controllers is good. All one would need to do is to make them wireless, wouldn't you think? Alas, such probably won't be the case as nothing can be simple.

I'm probably getting ahead of myself in actually nagging about this but I can't help but think they might fuck that part up.

There's also a lot of "wow" factor to it. Even if people didn't have wireless internet access at home, it would still be a huge benefit to play link games between two systems and not have to run wires across the whole house.

Oh, and nic cards are so cheap these days I think they're going to start giving them away in happy meals. It wouldn't be that much extra on top of the wireless.

DS
04-27-2005, 06:39 PM
Again, in order to take use of them, someone would have to have a wireless router. The cards only recieve data, they don't send. So if they don't have a router, it's completely useless. Also, not all cards will work with all routers.

That would tag on another $20 at least on the price and that is if the card worked with all routers.

That's not true at all, you are thinking too much in terms of simply using pc equipment. It would be entirely possible to have wireless system links that don't require a wireless router at all. Handheld games are doing it quite well. Granted the bigger consoles would have to send more data than a handheld, but I don't think its too far fetched.

You guys are acting like I said it was fact or something, hell I didn't even say it was probable. I merely said it would be pretty sweet, if you'd like to argue that point then by all means go ahead. Now that I think of it, it would be pretty damn cool if the Xbox 360 could make me a sandwich too, but I don't expect to see it either.

When it comes to price I don't think 20 bucks is an issue here. There have been talks of the system (fully loaded) costing up to $500. If I'm paying that much for a system is 20 bucks going to make a difference? Nope. I can't see anybody saying "I would pay 500 for a xbox, but its just way over priced at 520."

JEsus fucking Christ.

No, we're not making it out as though you said it was fact, we're making it out as though WE said it was fucking unfeasible.

God Damn it. Why can't people on the net read simplistic fucking English? Does your brain have a PSP's battery life or something?

Okay, ignoring your retardation for one split second, let's pretend that all they do is create a wifi link like a DS or PSP has. You'd need something that didn't interfere with a wifi router. You'd need to apply a second set of connections: One for the regular connections, one piece of hardware dedicated to a link. Now it would have to be more powerful than a DS/PSP connection is, not interfere with other products, and be built into a reasonably sized unit. Not only improbable, but impractical and still stupid, and would be more than another fucking 20 dollars. I know, when you pop a tiny price tag on it, it seems so reasonable, but you have to factor in time and effort to make an inobtrusive link-up with limited appeal, strong functionality, and unlikely to cause issues.

The DS and PSP both accomplish this by proprietary software which is limited in scope. And since game linking is such a common feature on portables, it's more desirable.

Now take that, jump your ass back on the short bus, and fuck off.

Who cares about what it looks like. I think the PS2 looks like a pile of crap but the graphics are awesome. For it's time anyway.

Yeah, I don't get all this pissing and moaning about how it looks. Fucking retarded.

I'll probably be flamed to hell and back for this, but I like the way it looks.

Don't get me wrong, I like the Xbox. A lot. But this one looks better to me, and maybe it'll stand a chance of not breaking a small child's back when you drop one onto him/her.

Video game shots are pointless, they were showing screen caps of that quality years ago.

Yeah, pre-rendered though. Real time is a whole different ball game.

System is decent looking, but the controller looks unusable. I'll have to go 3rd party (as much as I hate that) for this system. I can't stand when a d-pad is one huge button.

I still don't know if this is "real time" rendering though... It looks amazing, so amazing that it's almost too good to be true :D

Eh, that's exactly what I DON'T like about the PS2 controller. When you're playing something with a weird control system like RE, you hope and pray that it's an analog stick game (or at least I do). The segmented buttons make it annoying as hell for me.

I was totally pissed when I got Halo 2 and found out that the D-pad didn't move Master Chief on there. I always used the D-pad in the first Halo.

If any of you missed it, don't worry. There wasn't much to see as most of it had already been leaked but there was some game footage that was pretty nice.

I caught the very end where they had Mr. Hahn and some other celebs playing some game. Didn't impress me.

Engadget is showing the video that was released on Ourcolony.net. It shows off some pretty cool features etc, it's basically what I was hoping the MTV thing would be. If you guys were disappointed with the MTV thing you should check this one out.

...also www.xbox360.com is now live. The only thing on it so far is a 360 degree viewer of the... 360. Oh, and the controller.

The show was gay.

Too many commercials and music.

Liek 3 minutes or less of actual footage.

It looked nice but not that much nicer. (graphics)

Apparantly, those DOA4 pics are fake. Tecmo have been emailing sites withthem on to either say they're not real, or take them down

:lol: They can't deny that these are of DOA4, they are just trying to cover it up. They may be of an old build or something like that, but they are definitely real.

EDIT: After looking at the pic I posted above I noticed in the back it says "Xenon launch." That probably shows that it is an old build of the game.

Hopefully it looks a tad better. Fair enough, it's gorgeous, but it's not a new console leap over DOA:Ultimate enough for me

Yea, I agree. It looks really good, but it wouldn't sell me a console (if I wasn't already convinced).

I love the Xbox so much. I really do. I dare say that it's my favorite system, mainly because of Knights of the Old Republic.

But holy shit. It actually fit in a bag!

I thought it was going to be like http://xbox2.ytmnd.com . :p
