    Next Gen Xbox 720 "Durango" already in production

    Can't wait for this thing:

    The next-generation Xbox 720 games console has entered the manufacturing stages, according to reports on Monday.IGN has received information that the Austin, Texas-based Flextronics company, which currently assembles the Xbox 360 and manufactured the original console, has begun production of its successor; the much vaunted Xbox 720 or 'Durango' as it has been coined recently.


    Microsoft has confirmed that it has no plans to launch a new console in this calendar year, so IGN speculates the consoles may be development kits to enable games studios to begin creating content for the as-yet-unconfirmed device.


    IGN points out: "Prior to reaching the manufacturing stage, Flextronics created a new testing group separate from the rest of the company. This team was solely dedicated to comprehensive marketing, software, and hardware tests of the next Xbox. With that activity concluded, Flextronics started building the hardware -- but that doesn’t necessarily mean we’ll see the Durango soon."


    Reports that games studios like Crytek and EA already had working prototypes of the next-gen console were shot down last year, and speculation has died down recently with Microsoft's confirmation that it will not be launched at E3 or at any other time in 2012.


    The planned Xbox 720 is rumoured to be six times more powerful than the 360 thank to a 16-core processor with the latest estimates for launch coming at the end of 2013.

    I cant imagine what Forza 5 would look like in 3D with that console on 3x 50 inch plasmas.

    Well they have to stretch the life out as long as possible as it is towards the end of the lifespan when the thing really starts making serious money. Hardware costs go down and they rake in licensing fees for games.

    Not really, there was something special about being around for the birth of the console generation. I really don't anything came close to the Sega and Nintendo rivalry. It was special, very special.

    Plus the music on those 16 bit games... ahhh, memories.

    Awesome! I still enjoy the 360 and it's great that current gen consoles have lasted many years. But graphics have started to look dated compared to latest PC games. I wonder what new features the next gen consoles will have? A properly working Kinect 2.0 would be nice!

    Yeah, but when you nowadays play games form that era as arcade donwloads, you just realize the tremendous evolution of video games.

    And as to Sega vs Nintendo, nothing came close to Amiga vs Atari ST! Ahh damn, I spent hours playing Test Drive II (highlight: going so fast you'd see bugs splattered on the windscreen). And my neighbour had an Amiga and that amazing Mario-ripoff: The Great Giana Sisters. Those were the days...

    True it is mostly nostalgia but being around when consoles were just getting going and video games just started being taken seriiously is something these new generations will not experience.

    Yes but maybe they won't have to fight for video games being accepted as entertainment as opposed to just "games for kids", like our generation.

    I also hope the 720 will still apply to hardcore gamers mostly, and not going too much the casual gaming way as Nintendo.

    Doesn't that make our games more meaningful? It wasn't the Civil Rights struggle or anything but I remember how many $#@!ing idiotic adults I had to lecture and debate about videogames with. Now, Videogames are bigger than movies.

    I had some dumbass $#@! in a college class tell me how video games can't be sophisticated because it's just memorizing button presses and her argument was that theater was more engrossing. As if reciting scripted lines is as open ended as some of the worlds game designers create. I wanted to slap her with my penis.

    ^ What a ignorant $#@!!

    I think the best game ever released for consoles was the Ninja turtles, I always used to pick the kick ass Raphael.

    My mom never let me enjoy it though, She made me do my never-ending-homework before playing it.
    Then there was a gamed called "Go Fast" i think which you could only pick Porsche 959, i think it was the first game that you could play with cockpit view and it was a blast. Neighbours and i used to exchange our games, but i never let anyone even touch it. It was personal stuff.

    If you're paying 1k graphic cards you're doing it wrong. Consoles are nice, but you're so limited. With PC you're possibilities are endless. From mods to ENB.
