It’s been a long time coming for Microsoft fans, but today, Microsoft and XBox finally revealed the release date for the XBox One!!!
*Drum Roll* Ladies and gentlemen! The XBox One will become available for purchase on November 11th, 2013!!
Yes, I realize this is exactly one week after the release of the Playstion 4, but this date is very special to Xbox gamers. The Xbox 360 had it’s launch exactly 8 years prior to the XBox One.
On top of the release date, more info has been released about the system on the tech side of things. Microsoft stated that the CPU has been given an upgrade. The One’s CPU will now run at 1.75 GHZ instead of the originally announced 1.6 GHZ, which is a 10% upgrade from it’s original spec.
Microsoft has also stated that the One will be able to support up to 8 controllers at one time, while the PS4 will only support 4. It also has been said that Microsoft will allow indie game developers the freedom of naming their own price points for their games.
I, for one, am excited for the XBOX One, I have been since it was first announced and revealed. Now that a launch date has been announced, I’m feeling more excited.
Til next time!
Well, the rumors just keep on flying in the video game world. It is now rumored that several new consoles will be revealed at this years E3. These include: The XBox 720, PS4, and the 3DS Lite.
Now, the 720 and the PS4 have had rumors flying around for the past couple of years, but the 3DS Lite is news to me(there could have been rumors going around and I haven’t been paying attention, so sue me for having a day job).
Anyway, if these new systems are in fact revealed this summer than the next couple of years are gonna be pretty exciting in the gaming world. We know for a fact that the Wii U will be released soon and Sony and Microsoft both have a lot of hype concerning their new consoles, especially with the XBox 720. The newest rumor to surface about the 720 is that it might feature a DVR device. Well, with the new app additions and the eventual semi TV service that will become available through XBox Live, having a DVR system would be a great idea.
But wait, that’s not all!! Along with a rumored DVR the 720 is also rumored to support the also rumored Kinect 2 hardware. Now the Kinect 2′s sensor is rumored to be so advanced that it will even be able to read the users lips. Now if you ask me, that’s pretty fucking scary.
Well, there you have it. Rumors rumors everywhere but not a fact to be found….yet? Next week will be the Consumer Electronics Showcase(or CES) event. Which is where the 720 was rumored to be revealed a couple of months ago if you don’t remember. So maybe there will be some news that could help shed some light on all these rumors running around.
Til next time. Peace!!
Hey guys! Sorry about not getting the blog updated for a while, I’ve kinda had a rough week. Anyways, I’ve got some interesting news concerning an possible Assassin’s Creed movie be put into development. Here we go!
A few months ago, it was rumored that Ubisoft and Sony Pictures were in negotiations to bring some of the game developers biggest franchises, Ghost Recon, and Assassin’s Creed to the big screen. Well, looks like negotiations about Assassin’s Creed have made some progress because it has been revealed that Sony Pictures has apparently registered a number of domain names that would hint that they will in fact be making an Assassin’s Creed movie(I guess Assassin’s Creed didn’t appeal to Disney as much as Prince of Persia did).
Now, this isn’t the first time Assassin’s Creed has been seen in live action. There was a live action short movie made that served as a prequel to Assassin’s Creed 2 and shows what Ezio Auditore’s father, Giovanni did as an assassin himself. You can check out the whole thing right here. Warning, it is 35 min long so make sure you have some time.
Not bad huh? If this is an idea of what Ubisoft and Sony are thinking about, I’d say an Assassin’s Creed movie would do just fine and finally bring an end to super crappy video game movies.
What are your thoughts on the matter?
