I'm really looking forward to the 720, but i really really REALLY want it to be backwards compatible with my 360 games. (And for my microsoft account to keep it's gamer-score, which it most likely will)

While we've heard a range of speculation about the codenames of Sony
and Microsoft's next-gen consoles, a new report is claiming to have
outed them correctly for the first time, as well as revealing where
their components are being manufactured.

Be sure to remember that none of the below has been confirmed by
either Sony or Microsoft so, until it is, take it all with a large pinch
of salt.

According to SemiAccurate,
internal sources have revealed that Microsoft's next Xbox is is being
developed as project "Kryptos". The report also asserts that, as we've
heard previously, the AMD chip the console will run on is called Oban. Additionally, it seems that the manufacturing troubles with the chip that were threatening to derail the console's rumoured 2013 launch still haven't been cleared up, and Microsoft is running out of time to do so.

While we've now heard about the Oban chip from several different
sources, this is the first time that the "Kryptos" codename has been
thrown into the mix. We've previously heard the next-gen Xbox referred to as Durango; indeed, development photos and a supposed early version of the dev kit for
Microsoft's next console that was sold on eBay went under that moniker.
So which is the real codename? Sadly, for now at least, we have no
idea.

Moving onto the console many are calling the PlayStation 4, it's
apparently being referred to internally as project "Thebes". Once again,
an AMD chip is meant to be at the centre of the console and this is
planned to be produced at either Global Foundries or IBM. If true, this
means the chip would enter production after Oban, meaning a projected
release window for the PlayStation 4 would be sometime between spring
and autumn 2013.

Again this conflicts with some of the information we've previously heard; numerous sources have referred to the PS4 as Orbis.

So what do you think? Is the report accurate, and do you prefer the old or new codenames?

I prefer the old ones.

The Xbox 720 official name is "Xbox" though.
The PS4s unofficial name is the PS4
Valve Consoles UnOfficial name is the Steambox

A bold move...but is Microsoft willing to compromise its consumer base?



Rumor has it the next-generation Xbox may limit exactly what kind of games you're allowed to play. According to sources speaking to Kotaku,
the Xbox 360's successor will have some kind of anti-used-game
enforcement. There's no explanation of what that means, but speculation
surrounding the issue says the console could outright reject used-games
altogether.



LA Noire used an online pass this generation. Would you buy an Xbox 3 if you couldn't play its sequel used?



Online passes
are a recent staple in staving off used sales. Limiting what used
buyers can access is a protective measure for publishers, much to the
chagrin of parts of the gaming community. Chris Kohler of Wired
argues that the death of used games is inevitable, and passes are the
first step toward something exactly like a native anti-used game something
integrated into consoles. He notes, of course, that digital is the
future of buying games, but in the meantime we may be looking at "an
interim period in which the disc as a delivery method is still around
but...becomes more like a PC game, which are sold with one-time-use keys
that grant one owner a license to play the game on his machine."

For all we know, if this is legitimate, such a theoretical link
between a Gamertag and new game would simply negate the need for online
pass redemption codes in every game. This alleged feature comes
alongside talks that the Xbox 3 will also turn to blu-ray for its primary format.

Until Microsoft officially unveils details about its much-rumored
new device, we're relying on speculation with strong rhetoric to figure
out the future of gaming. Would a console permanently banning of
used-games be a deal-breaker for you?


End Transmission ....
