Said the guy who started the "Live with it" always on thing guy could be a bit of spin from Microsoft?

So for backwards compatibility to work, you need to buy the previous console! Genius! :lol:

Most people one here took the last rumours as true, be interesting to see how many think this is true. Should be a lot of you considering how much moaning went on about the last rumours...


Probably wont suit a lot of people to say this is true, again this is just a rumour, lets wait for facts.

Rumours fly around yes but Microsoft and EA are friends with the devil himself so it's hard to trust them in any way to make a sensible decision

I hope this is true, the internet connection in my house is a nightmare, considering it took about a minute seconds to load this web page, having to deal with an always online system would be irritating, not to mention my terrible network keeps disconnecting every 20 minutes.

Their were rumours that the PS4 had always online functions and blocked second hand games and those turned out to be false, hopefully the rumours for the new xbox will be false as well.

Finally some positive news about the new Xbox. It all sounds reasonable, and it's something I'm looking forward to.

According to this rumour, its seems like a very sensible decision. I did say that there is a possibility a lot of people are going to have to do a bit of back tracking on here. And so far the rumours around the PS4 turned out to be just that, a rumour.

And now we have another rumour that this time may turn out to be fact, leaving some people red faced. This is why i didnt jump on the pitchfork bandwagon......Its better to wait and see.

I hope for the fans of XBOX that this rumor is true. Regardless if some would accept it or not, always online would be a pain in the arse. I'm glad though, Nintendo, Sony & Microsoft are listening to what the fans want this time around. Why anyone wants any of the 3 to fail is beyond me. We're spoiled little f**kers when it comes to console gaming. It's easy to focus on the negative than the positive. I remember the 360 had a HD-DVD drive add on for €180,so hopefully this will be cheaper for them. Congrats XBOX fans (if it's true).

Be honest, all these rumours the past few weeks are just from that bloke that sits outside Greggs busking all day aren't they.
Here's a lockpick, now jog on.

If these rumours are true it seems a very messy way of doing backwards compatibility. The whole point of having a backwards compatible console is that you don't need two boxes under the TV.

From what im reading there it may be very small, like the media boxes you get that are not much bigger than an external hard drive. So it would take up much less room than keeping your 360 under your TV as well

Might be a good idea actually...I was planning on keeping the 360, but this might be an alternative....Especially as it was going to be a squeeze having the PS4 there as well....

Got a mental image of a 360 duck taped onto the word RUMOUR.

VGLeaks corroborates, saying the delay was due to Microsoft "not having a physical set of devices to show" and "specification changes".


Wonder if the "specification changes" involve any of the following phrases: "DDR5", "12GB" or "1.8TF"
