Microsoft team is working hard, because they want to impress you again with something very, very attractive.
The project started earlier in 2011 when they decided that is time to improve their top gaming console – XBOX 360. Since then they’ve dug to the core of the problem and because the target was to make something revolutionary, and we all know that in real life nothings good comes easy.
What exactly we will find in the new XBOX, well there are a lot of new features that will definitely satisfy every gamer out there, even if you are not a gamer you’ll definitely feel the need to touch it, and then to buy it.
Considering the new games that are out there on the market plus the ones that will be release soon in 2013, and the performances of the actual console, there was a need for this upgrade. That’s why part of the gamers community stated to build their one desktops to be able to play the newest games at their maximum capacity. But 360 resisted pretty good on the market and did a good impression in front of the new releases.
Now about this new “toy”, I don’t know all the specs, and one reason is that because they didn’t quite put all the parts together. What I know for sure is this:
The new XBOX will have integrated a brand new chip, redesigned and super powerful, a 22-28 nm chip, another processing core at the same clock speed, a faster cache which is four-time bigger, six times the number of transistors . With this they mixed 8GB of RAM, and the best part are the four HARDWARE cores, and each of this core will have four logical cores – can you believe this? With this configuration you can make a great computer to run with it’s tail between the legs ).
If all this wasn’t enough, I have some more tech specs. How does 50 Gb of games on a single disk sounds? Exactly that’s how they designed the new Blu-Ray optical drive to work. We all know that this could be a big problem with an average Blu-Ray, or with the first generations, to run smoothly. But now this is not a problem anymore, the technology advanced and you can be sure that Microsoft will spoil us with the most advanced one.
I have some news about the old controller to, the rumors are that our palms will rest a newly designed controller. The ergonomics will be improved very much, and they’ll be adjustable for every customers hand shape. It will have built in a touch screen, and some new programmable buttons, which will allow you to customize the way you wanna play a game. Microsoft team initially wanted to collaborate with Razor for the touch screen, but the price would’ve jump to much (look at the Wii U how much costs – because they worked with Razor) so they decided to work with their own screen sensitive technology.
The prepared something delightful for our ears too, a beautifully integrated 3D sound system. All this 3D sound system will be integrated in the 10×20 cm box (I forgot to specify earlier the dimensions of the new XBOX). You will not have to put all over the room a speakers and cables anymore, every pice of sound will come out from that stylish box, and it’s gonna be good, a “Real Virtual Sound”.
Particularly for this product they’ll introduce the cloud gaming. I believe that with so many clouds out there on the internet, we will not be able to see the Sun’s light anymore.
Now the big question is, how much time we have to wait until we’ll se this product in stores? We will have to pace ourself, because the launching date is programmed for November 2013, and probably in 2014 we will have the slim option too. The slim option will come without the Blu-Ray optical drive, and all the games will be accessed online. Personally I see a problem related to the slim one, because like Netflix recently related; when it comes to internet, Canada is a third world country.
