Invites were directed to industry insiders yesterday with the slogan " New Generation Revealed", saying that the launch will be hosted at Microsoft in Redmond, Washington campus in the United States.

Third-generation Xbox, the latter with the 2005 release of the Xbox 360, accompanied by a haze of rumours around his features, including the interface, which will be imposed on watching TV and disagreements about whether the Internet connection required to play.

    There are roughly the same number of Xboxes in use around the world as there are Apple Macs.  Will Microsoft just dump support for these users (as Apple usually does) or will it continue to support what is now the world's biggest gaming and third biggest computing platform?  We'll see.

    Actually Nintendo is the biggest gaming platform as it has sold 93 million Wiis, then 360 at 67 million with ps3 at 64 million.

    If the 720 requires a constant intenet connection i think ths will be their achilles tendon. Their projector system does look interesting which could be the compromise.

    Maybe i will just upgrade the PS3 as the 720 will probably RRoD

     I think Wally is probably discounting the Wii - I wouldn't consider it a gaming platform in the sense of the 360 or PS3, it's more of a light hearted entertainment system that also has some serious games available for it, often older ones.

     If an internet connection is required to play games I will stay well away from it. They can easily do it though, as most gamers play online. Me, I prefer single player mode.

Wise Words

"When we finally presented it at the shareholders' meeting, everyone in the auditorium stood up and gave it a five-minute ovation. What was incredible to me was that I could see the Mac team in the first few rows. It was as though none of us could believe that we'd actually finished it. Everyone started crying."

The wrong direction

Although this is the first post about my four hour workweek, it did not just start for me. If you read the about me section, that was almost a year ago. So how did I do? Well, I've made some progress. By falling and standing up. By making decisions and ignoring some. After my breakdown I...

Staying over with a friend was very nice and also useful. It made my trip cost way less, while I also had some...

My worry about losing the Queen

My worry about losing the Queen would be that she would still be entitled to take money from the Crown Estates. I hope when negotiations are taking place after the referendum, that the SNP would not go soft on this and on a number of other matters, like being over generous with the entitlement...

How to get indoor an orchids to grow and bloom?

The thing which, apart from Climate Gate, really knocked them sideways was that bitterly cold December 2013.

Louise wouldn't remember it because she was with Chris Huhne in Cancun at the time and kept telling us how warm it was poolside — while it was –15ºC here and...
