Default Re: *rumor* ms employee leaks possible 360 update info

if there is no quick upgrade path, I think I would just find someone to sell mine off to and upgrade. I went through two xboxes, It wouldn't surprise me to go through more than one 360.

A possible 'late 2007' release ?

That's pretty late indeed. PAL PS3's launching in March you know...

360 isn't fixing stuff. They are introducing more stuff. It is a update meant to generate more sales. Don't like it don't buy it but it is certainly nothing like the failed PS3.

if this new version is the "multimedia" version and cost more than the current top version, I don't think people should be too upset. They bought their original version for gaming, and guess what, that it can still do no problem.

So what is it on the PS3 that needs fixing? The only major problem with it right now is the lack of games. Most of the other things don't require hardware revisions and can be fixed through software updates.

The only reason I see for Sony to push out another console model is if they need a hardware fix for their scaler situation.

I'm sure there are a lot of current 360 users on this board that are interested in IPTV and if that requires them to purchase another 360 I don't think they'll be very happy.

agrees with above, and that is coming from someone on the MS camp. of course I could be evil and say the cell was a bad decision to put in a game console, but thats a different thread...

We already have a couple of those.

Isn't IPTV coming out within a few months? why would the new console be out in a year then?

I'd put my money on this being mostly fake.
Mostly because I can see the new 360's coming with bigger hard drives, and I can also see IPTV which is to be released this fall co-inciding with IPTV providers only offering the new boxes (instead of a set top box). I highly doubt that the 360 v1 will not be able to run the IPTV software.

Please remember that simply because the 360 gets IPTV support doesn't mean you get IPTV, you still need a provider to sell you the service.

This isn't targeted towards current owners. It is targeted to those who don't have one yet. This sets MS up in a great position over Sony.

AFAIK right off the bat you need AT&T's Fiber Optic network to use IPTV so that fact right there will limit most of us from using this new service. If a new 360 is indeed needed on top of the AT&T network then IPTV on the 360 will be an extremely limited feature.

Not sure if most of you have seen this but here's a vid/interview of IPTV on 360.

Notice the HDD on the unit under the TV, dev unit?
