  • French site claiming Xbox 360 CES reveal
  • New console may include 2GB of DDR3 RAM

The CES expo in January may act as our first view of Microsoft's successor to the Xbox 360.

That's according to French website Xboxygen, which is reporting that the company will reveal a new console and its specs, but not its software of features.

It cites an anonymous source close to Microsoft (unsurprisingly), suggesting that two teams called 'Infinity' and 'Loop' are in charge of hardware and software respectively.

What will be inside the console? Apparently a hex-core (six-core) CPU, with an AMD graphics card and 2GB of DDR3 RAM.

The AMD inclusion backs up reports that the company has close ties with the next Xbox.

LOL @ "xboxygen"

Great name.
CAN'T.COME.SOON.ENOUGH.

Will be the best gen in my eyes, the extra ram will make a lot of difference. I just hope were getting native 1080p titles next gen none of this sub-hd crap.
seems unlikely unless they wanted to get the announcement out ahead of the Wii U launch, also 2GB ram seems quite low, would think their next gen would have a bit more grunt
2 gigabytes of ram!?!?! Chu know this is gonna be at the forefront of next gen technology now :P
Consoles will always be behind in RAM when compared with your average PC.

Isn't that quite a bit for consoles?
I thought it was, what's in them at the moment? 512MB isn't it

Around that.
DAT POWAH
current xbox has 512mb which when you consider the hardware is roughly 6 years old then going to 2GB doesn't really feel like enough of a step, considering they will want the next console to be relevant for the next 5-6 years or longer
If this is true hopefully Nintendo beef up the Wii U so they can at least be in the same ballpark this time round.
god damn it really

i still think it might be a bit soon for the next xbox console
Lock it in, random French sites are always right.

That's a given man no way would they skimp on that. These days 1080p is the standard for everything.

When I saw the news link I was hoping to see a preview shot of what the console looked like, at least a low res high angle shot covered in watermarks.
sounds like atari 360, 720 what next?

The Wii U is both renders and outputs in native 1080, so I'm expecting this to have it as well. What I'm interested in seeing is just how will they convince people to get excited when we won't see any software. Specs are hard to get excited for on a console, because they aren't as telling of a console's power as they are on PC. I for one think that if all they're offering is specs, I'll just get a better PC. -_-
Noo don't release it yet you thieving swines, I'm not made of money and I need GTA 5 :*O

You do realize that you don't have to buy a new console if you don't want...it's entirely up to you.

Yes, I'm aware of that. I meant I hope they don't release GTA 5 on a new console.

Incorrect. They make us buy the games. They are so appealing and the prices so affordable.

Occupy Microsoft.
