    [Megathread] Xbox One Discussion

    "The Next-Gen Xbox has reportedly been confirmed to be named the "Xbox One". International Business Times are quoted to have said "Sources related to development of the new Xbox have confirmed to IBTimes UK that the console, which is scheduled to be launched on 21 May, will be called Infinity".


    I guess we'll find out for sure this evening. Hopefully they announce some of the new games coming to it as well. I'm guessing the release date will be in the winter right before Christmas.

    GAMES WILL BE SHOWN AT E3.

    I'm interested to see what the features are in the new XBOX.

    However, no matter what they offer in it, after that whole "no offline gameplay" situation, I'm buying a PS4

    No one is really sure about that right now. Rumors months ago were that they're not offering offline play, but more recent rumors (last 2 weeks) say that Microsoft has backed off from that.
    My Cracked articles, writing blog, and Twitter.

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    even if they have backed off it doesnt change the fact that they treated customers like douchebags

    I remember being absolutely ecstatic for new consoles 7 to 13 years ago....but I am just completely uninterested in any of these next gen ones honestly. I think it is funny that Sony is going to use ustream as their streaming partner though lol. Microsoft made a good decision with twitch. Nintendo won't even be having a press conference at E3. I can't think of any reason for me to buy a console though. Regardless though I will be watching this along with E3 to see if they come up with something worthwhile or if they goof up

    EA does that all the time, but people continue to buy their games.

    I've seen the rumors saying it may not be online only, but that's beside the point. The whole "Deal with it" comment turned me off of Microsoft. I don't care what they did about it afterwards.

    To be fair, I'm more of a playstation/PC guy anyway.

    Why is it called Xbox Infinity?

    Because when you see it you keep turning around in a circle forever?

    The name showed up on early Dev Kits ~2 months ago pic, then someone made a fake logo image on reddit, and Forbes/International Buisness Times/Gaming sites etc. used the reddit image for Xbox Infinity.

    Because it's following the whole Windows 8 trend and what happens when you turn the 8 on it's side? It looks like an Infinity symbol.

    Shock horror.

    Because it isn't? That's just what some early speculators have called it. It could named that, but also could be named something completely else. It certainly hasn't been called Xbox Infinity anywhere official.

    Same, planning on picking up a ps3 when the ps4 comes out with the price drop of games and consoles.

    Xbox really has no exclusives i'm interested in.

    No interest in getting an xbox but will still watch with intrigue for the inevitable usher/other non-gaming related appearance, they've been a sinking ship in gamers eyes for a while now so it'll be interesting to see if they've anything to stem that or is the casual direction the one they're sticking with.

    I burst out laughing at work when I heard the name of it. It sounds like an argument between two 8 year olds.

    "PS3"
    "Xbox 360!!!"
    "Um... ok... PS4"
    "XBOX INFINITY"
    "PS5?"
    "XBOX INFINITY PLUS ONE"
