EA: Next-gen Xbox rumour a “complete fabrication”

Friday, 6 May 2011 16:48 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Following a Develop rumour story, citing a source, which claimed an EA developer was in receipt of early next gen Xbox hardware, EA has said the talk is “100 percent not true”.

Develop’s story said the next Xbox is being played around with by an unnamed Electronic Arts studio, and was sent to the firm last month.

The site said the machine was a very early build, with no official case and therefore stored in a PC shell.

EA has stamped on this quickly.

“This story is a total fabrication – 100 percent not true,” EA corporate spokesman Jeff Brown told Industry Gamers.

Develop’s story included quotes from what it said was a “senior, trusted, well-placed” source.

“Quite often when new consoles come around they’re packaged into a PC shell, but actually what’s inside is an entirely new console.”

Develop said that so far Microsoft and EA have both declined comment on the matter, and the source is not employed by either company.

The site said the person in question is under the assumption the cosole will be in stores by the end of 2012, and that an announcement of sorts will be mentioned at E3.

Eurogamer has also pushed back on the report, quoting another source as saying any E3 2011 announcement is “highly unlikely.”

Microsoft has said in the past not to expect a new console from the firm until the current lifespan of Xbox 360 reached the 10-year mark, meaning it won’t be released until 2014 at the earliest.

However, past sources have claimed the firm could be “pressured” into a 2013 should another new console burst out of the gate first – such as Nintendo’s Project Café.

Last month, another source claimed a new Xbox SKU would hit in 2013, but it will not be the oft-rumored Xbox 720, only a Kinect-upgraded 360.

    Finally. Thats something.
    I can’t live with this generation of graphics and capabilities. Xbox 360 and PS3 are old as fuck. it’s time to move on because nothing can be done impressive there. Multiplatform games also stop evolution on PC. Graphics and capabilities basically ended with Crysis 1 2007 level of graphics. 2007 ! it’s 2011 ladies. The era of Direct X11. consoles use Direct X9 only. We are two and even 3 generations ahead.

    even exclusive games are choppy as fuck because of 3D and new visual effects on current gen.

    Although, saying that, if Microsoft and Sony were smart, they just not try and do anything for a while. I mean if Cafe comes out and it’s a minor step up from the 360/PS3 as it’s rumoured, it’ll be mostly held back by those two consoles, then in 2014 MS and Sony could release a new console each that is head and shoulders above the Cafe and it’ll flounder about and die like the Dreamcast did.

    @9 they are though in the gaming world though. Cpmparing the new xbox to project cafe will be like comparing atari 5200 to PS3 ( project cafe being the atari in this case). Nintendo will and hopefully will finally die at last next gen.

    I dont care bout graphic improvements etc, xbox looks fine to me.

    If and when they do another console, they need certain things in order 4 me 2b interested and im sure a lot of others.

    People have invested so much more money than usual with this gen, with more games, addons, dlc, xboxlive arcade, achievements, etc

    It needs to be backwards comp, i got a lot of games id like to keep playing, let you transfer all your dlc, achievements, arcade games over. Be able to use my rock band stuff.

  34. Phoenixblight


    Nintendo has said they plan on releasing the new console in 2012 so it would strongly suggest that they would reveal it this E3 as far as MS goes their console if this article is believed to be true is a very early build with nothing set in stone. If anything MS is probably building the console on the feedback from the developers.

    #34 4 years ago
  35. drewbles82

    ms this E3 will be games, games, games. Kinect will finally prob get some hardcore gamer sorta games, maybe even an update kinect 2.0.

    Next yr will prob announce the new console, 2013 E3 will show playable consoles and release possibly that holiday season.

  45. Phoenixblight

    THe infrastructure with Bandwidth is not ready to go pure digital but it will most likely something that is used more than present. I am personally hoping for a Steam type store but also you can go get the physical version. As far as the disc goes it probably will be HVD and it will be capped at probably at a few hundred GB. Devs have been barely pushing out games with 20GBs uncompressed. If MS wants to follow the 10 year term like they did this gen it would make sense to leave as much space as possible so Devs have the space needed to do whatever over the years. The new console probably will allow add ons and options too.
    SO many possibilities!

    Can you imagine they release the console 2013 and do another 10 year term that means the next console to be announced/release at 2024. Scary……

    “I see, you believe everything that’s on the internet nvm.”

    Well it was put on the hiring part of MS in March so yes I do believe that.

    @ SOMI

    You are either a fanboy of microsoft and sony, a very uneducated person, or just a complete moron. I’m not quite sure which. First of all, we get that you dont like Nintendo. Shut up about it. But Nintendo has done what the other consoles have failed at and thats making high quality games without the need of a powerful system. I love the Xbox 360 and the ps3, they are both great systems. But you have to give respect where respect is due. And I believe that goes to the company who owns 3 of the 5 top selling gaming franchises of all time. The company who has the best selling console of all time. And arguably one of the best developers/ publishers of all time.

    Oh that’s right, the company I’m thinking of is Nintendo.

    #47 4 years ago
  48. theevilaires

    I’m so not ready for next gen. Theres so much that can still be done PS3 wise but I see why M$ are going this route if true. The 360 was never meant to be a 10 year machine. Thats not how American companies think. They want new hardware and new profits while still selling their old tech (APPLE anyone).

    Of course being more of a PlayStation fan I have more anticipation for the PS4 but I want to see the nextbox as much too. EPIC has already shown off their new engine and DICE with Battlefield 3 is obviously bringing it on another level there.

    One thing M$ does is listen to the consumer and what they want. Many people have voiced their hopes and love for the new Battlefield 3. M$ knows they can never get those earlier videos graphical quality out of the 360 so this rumor is looking highly likely.

    @51, that crap fest like Crysis 2 was consolized so yeah i agree, it should stay for the PC from the start.

    also, i don’t remember so much of a GOTY at this year, except for the fact that GOTY games like Witcher 2 soon, Portal 2 (It’s Valve and PC is always a priority) and SHOGUN:TOTAL WAR 2 are already on the market and GOTY.

    Why should Nintendo be kicked out of the gaming world? I bet you are a 15 year old pussy who has a 360 and does nothing else but play crappy FPS like COD: Black ops. You don’t have to agree, I know I’m right. Who do you think formed the gaming industry to what it is today? BTW who would Sony and M$ copy if Nintendo would disappear? And no I’m not a Nintendo fanboy. I haven’t bought a Nintendo console since the N64, but I do respect them for all they did and will keep on doing. I’m pretty sure both Sony and M$ will copy their new controller at some point..

    Witcher 2 HA! PC pirates already have there P2P file sharing clients ready…that game doesn’t have a chance of getting GOTY.

    Now a console game…you bet your ass. I’ll even give you a hint as to which one. Its the game you keep claiming will look worst because its now supporting 3D ;) Tell your mommy to boost your high chair a little back from your telly because those graphics are going to blow you away kid.

    Dream bitch, because last one sold really well and this time it will sell even better. We all know that PS3 sales are always shit compared to Xbox 360 or PC.

    Do you want to know sales of Starcraft II or World Of warcraft:Cataclysm? Go figure, child :D
    or maybe Xbox 360 multiplatform titles or Halo and Gears Of War?

    Civs sell really well too. And the Age of Empires games. And The Sims games. Not to mention countless casual games that while might not be as manly gamewise, can’t discount them either.

    So ya I would agree, Blizz isn’t the only ones able to move a PC game.

    As for multiplate games, sure a console game is prolly gonna always sell best on a console.

    Damn, there are a lot of stupid fanboys on here, it’s so annoying seeing your wall of text arguments, which most of the time have nothing to do with the topic.

    Anyway, I wouldn’t be surprised if microsoft are thinking of rushing a new console, now that nintendo have something comming.

    I just wonder though, if you think back to the first 360 games, it didn’t seem like a big step from the previous generation, they just gradually got better. Where as the PS3 seemed to have better looking games early on. Just my opinion.

    What it can do is not important… its NAME is what I would like to know. I mean Xbox 720 is fucking retarded imo, i’m hoping for some imagination. A guy mentioned Nextbox earlier… that’s kinda catchy :)

    @ 63: Early PS3 games looked exactly the same as early 360 games.

    there is no point for nintendo to show machine at this E3 when they just released 3ds in 2011

    ..oh wait

    @65 They really didn’t, I remember when 360 came out, I really wasn’t impressed. I remember some games that looked worse than some origanl xbox/ps2 games. I’m sure I heard that some games were rushed in development to keep up with the launch date.

    When I think of the early ps3 games I think of resistance and heavenly sword, which have some nice graphics, just saying it how it is.

    That wasn’t my point anyway and the graphics on both consoles now are very close, the ps3 might take the edge when it comes to exclusives graphics.

    The point was that microsoft want to be ahead of the competition and that’s good, look how the 360 has done. I’m sure people don’t even remember the crappy looking early games.

    Right. Nonsensoleum-fuelled console slagging aside, I agree with OlderGamer and drew.

    I don’t think we should be pushing gaming hardware these days, but high concept gaming ideas. I’ll cite some examples. Guild Wars 2 is trying to move away from everything that makes a traditional MMORPG what it is whilst barely remaining a MMORPG and being better for it, it’s got a lot of ideas in there that could go terribly wrong, but someone has to try these things! There needs to be evolution. And another great example is the likes of flOwer and Journey on the PS3.

    We need to look at games and think, okay, we know what sort of game that is, now let’s try doing something new and interesting with it. It won’t work every time, but it should be done regardless. Another of my favourite examples is Spore and Darkspore – brilliantly progressive games, but it was only a niche audience that actually understood them, it seemed to go over the heads of many and few understood the point. But they need to exist.

    Things can be learned from every experiment, and these things will be filtered down into countless thousands of future games. For example – Spore/Darkspore has an absolutely astounding procedural animation system that Maxis will continue to try to use. Spore itself allowed you to put together almost anything you could imagine, if you had the right mods and you were talented/imaginative enough.

    There’s worth in every experiment, whether it succeeds or fails. Even if it only has a tiny bit of critical success, it moves the entertainment industry forward. I think the only problem at the moment is that we’re heading the way of Hollywood – endless, mindless blockbusters with not much worth to them, and very little innovation. Better hardware has never and will never fix that.

    I have a lot of hopes held with certain big developers, some independent ones, that I know to watch for interesting ideas (and they rarely disappoint me). And hopefully they’ll continue dragging along the metaphorical metathorax that is the rest of the games industry. Doing exciting new things which may have no commercial worth at all.

    One other thing I’ll note that I’m intrigued by is the new spat of Minecraft-alikes. At first it was cheap cash-ins, but now we’re moving beyond that and some people are genuinely trying to iterate upon it and even revolutionise the idea. Have you seen Terraria? If not, look it up!
