Xbox 720 rykten

Nya super spelkonsolen XBox 720

Det skrivs en hel del om Microsofts nya XBox 720 konsol som troligen släpps först till julhandeln 2013. Det är lite väl långt bort och innan dess kommer Nintendos nya Wii konsol ta marknadsandelar. Nyligen läkte ett 56 sidor stort dokument från Microsoft där man kunde läsa om kommande Metro UI och ett par smarta glasögon samt SmartGlass som Microsoft nyligen presenterade.

SmartGlass är en teknik för att trådlöst streama/skicka video från din Surfplatta eller mobil till din TV. Den funktionen ser vi redan i t.ex. de senare mobilerna från HTC.

Dokumentet var daterat två år tillbaks men gav ändå viktig information om kommande saker från Microsoft.

Nya spelkonsolen från Wii är en riktigt kul sak med en separat handkontroll med inbyggd skärm. Med den kan man antingen hålla den i handen eller lägga på golvet vilket är bra på golfspelen där man ser bollen och peggen.

En bildsökning på Google efter den nya Xbox 720 visar många kreativa designer men troligen inte så den kommer se ut. Mest troligt kommer den likna sin föregångare och med bättre ventilation samt klara kraftigare hårdvara. Troligt är också att den blir mindre och mer anpassad till ett modernt vardagsrum.

Den nya Xbox 720 kommer ha minst 6 ggr snabbare hårdvara, 1080p med 3D support, Blue-Ray läsare och en hel del grafik prestanda. Några rykten säger konsolen kommer få två grafik processorer som arbetar sida vid sida (som två grafikkort med SLI?) och är troligen ett krav för snabba 3D spel. Processor blir troligen en 16-kärnig variant och det låter inte helt fel då produkten ska släppas under slutet av 2013.

Mjukvaran baseras troligen på nya Windows 8 med DirektX 11. Ganska nyligen hade Lionhead studio en jobbannons ute där de sökte efter DirektX 11 programmerare.

Hur mycket skulle en Xbox 720 kosta? Ja det skrivs mycket om att ingen skulle betala mer än ca 4000 kr för en spelkonsol och att XBox 720 skulle kosta runt 3000 kr i handeln. I vilket fall beror det på vilket spelutbud det kommer finnas.. inga spel = ingen försäljning.

Xbox Makes Entertainment More Amazing on Phone, PC, Tablet and TV

Xbox SmartGlass will deliver new ways to enjoy entertainment in the home and on the go.

LOS ANGELES, June 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — What if your tablet or phone knew what you were watching on TV and presented bonus features without you having to lift a finger? What if you could use your tablet to draw up a play in EA SPORTS’ ”Madden NFL” and then perform it to perfection on your TV? What if you could control your favorite websites on the TV with a simple swipe, pinch or zoom on your tablet’s touchscreen?

To kick-start the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Microsoft Corp. today unveiled a bold new vision for enjoying entertainment at home and on the go with Xbox SmartGlass. Launching this year, Xbox SmartGlass is an application for Windows 8, Windows Phone, and other portable devices that connects phones, PCs and tablets with your Xbox 360 console to make your entertainment smarter, more interactive and more fun.(1) The intelligence of Xbox SmartGlass makes your entertainment more engaging, Web surfing more effortless, and playing games more immersive by delivering companion content and control to enhance your TV experience.

”Xbox is on a mission to make the entertainment that you love even more amazing,” said Don Mattrick, president of the Interactive Entertainment Business at Microsoft. ”With Xbox SmartGlass, we are lighting up entertainment across your phone, tablet, PC and TV in a completely new way. If you love to play games, watch TV and movies, surf the Web, or listen to music, there has never been a better time to be on Xbox.”

Two years after the launch of Kinect for Xbox 360, Microsoft unveiled the next step in its journey to make Xbox synonymous with entertainment by unveiling Xbox SmartGlass, Internet Explorer for Xbox, and new TV, movie and music offerings.

The Web Transformed for TV
Microsoft will launch Internet Explorer for Xbox this fall in all countries where Xbox and Xbox LIVE are available. Through the power of Xbox, the magic of Kinect and the intelligence of Xbox SmartGlass, you will be able to surf the Internet using your voice on your Xbox 360 and navigate using your mobile devices for an incredibly easy Web browsing experience on the television.(2) Whether it is a new website you want to check out on the big screen, an HD video you want to share in your living room, or your favorite website you check daily and want to view in the 10-foot experience, you will have the power of the Web now on your TV.

Entertainment Keeps Getting Better on Xbox
Last year, Xbox added voice search powered by Bing and the power of Kinect, making it easier to find the entertainment you want. This year, voice search is expanding to 12 additional countries: Australia, Austria, Brazil, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain and Switzerland.

Adding to the current catalog of customized sports, TV, movies and music apps from world-leading TV and entertainment providers, this year Xbox will continue to deliver all the content you care about in unique ways.

Your home for sports. Microsoft announced more must-have sports experiences and content coming to Xbox this year, further establishing it as the home for sports fans everywhere.

Fans who subscribe to NBA.com League Pass Broadband will have access to hundreds of out of market live games (blackout restrictions apply in the U.S. and some international markets), plus highlights from around the league and up to the minute stats of your favorite players.
NHL GameCenter LIVE™ (Worldwide except Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden). Hockey fans will be able to enjoy every moment of the live action as it happens on the ice, with live games (out of market and blackout restrictions apply), more in-game interactivity, and replays and highlights on demand any time.
ESPN (U.S.). Later this year fans will enjoy 24/7 live programming through WatchESPN from ESPN Networks – ESPN, ESPN 2, ESPN 3 and ESPN U. All the favorites, including ”SportsCenter,” ”SportsNation,” ”The Mike and Mike Show,” as well as ESPN’s coverage of the NFL, MLB and the NBA, will be live on Xbox.

Xbox also announced regional sports provider SPORT1 coming later this year to Austria, Germany and Switzerland.

With Xbox on Windows 8, you can play games with friends and earn achievements, listen to music, and enjoy your favorite TV shows and movies wherever you go.(4) And with Xbox SmartGlass, you can start a movie or TV show on your Windows 8 device and finish it on the big-screen TV.

Mest troligt kommer den likna sin föregångare och med bättre ventilation samt klara kraftigare hårdvara. Troligt är också att den blir mindre och mer anpassad till ett modernt vardagsrum.

Den nya Xbox 720 kommer ha minst 6 ggr snabbare hårdvara, 1080p med 3D support, Blue-Ray läsare och en hel del grafik prestanda. Några rykten säger konsolen kommer få två grafik processorer som arbetar sida vid sida (som två grafikkort med SLI?) och är troligen ett krav för snabba 3D spel.
