I think it would be a fairly safe bet to say that the next xbox will have heating and heat/cool cycles tested far beyond what is normal, and the products won't have any issues with heat


One could've said the same back before the 360 was launched too. You just never know. At least speculation of hardware quality is a valid concern, seeing with what happened with the 360 fiasco. I'd still be a bit skeptical myself, seeing how they released the Surface Pro which is quite warm when just sitting idle. :ermm:

I'm certainly no early adopter though when it comes to hardware.

In this thread: OP posts pro-Sony, anti MS rumor and replies every few posts to defend himself.

More seriously, all it needs is one or two A+ launch titles which I'm sure are not behind. Anything else they might as well delay till a bit after launch to keep momentum going.

I don't know the OP's motivation but I would agree with your assessment. One or two AAA titles, especially if one is from Halo family and the other from Gears of War family.

I'm not so sure about the set top box thing. I'm not into Kinect either, but millions are or will be.

There's a massive point here to consider. PS3 is mostly applicable and sells the best in Asian countries. Xbox is primarily advertised to the west.

Xbox 360 has been the best selling console in the US for 27 months (NPD).

The fact of the matter is, the PS will always do well and will carry on to do well in Asain countries, but primarily doesn't do as well as the Xbox in the west.


I'm telling you it's the controller made for smaller hands. Even now, I won't go back to PS3 without taking the Xbox controller which will add about $70 for an adapter to use the wireless controller.

Yeah its clearly pro-Sony if you post something negative about Durango. No wonder this section of the forums are dead if you post anything you are either pro this or anti that and have to spend next 5 pages defending yourself.

Since when UK = europe ?


I couldn't find any source regarding console sales in general Europe, hence stating UK information.

Unlike other posters here, I don't form claims based on fantasy.
