    It seems strange how all of the biggest games are getting released in the first half of 2013 such as GTA V, The last of Us, MGS Rising yet theres absolutely nothing for the second half.

    Theres definitely at least one new console that will release in 2013 from either Sony or MS.
    There likely will be a next gen Sony/MS console this autumn, but I don't think the software release schedule is that much of an indicator to be honest, as the only one that sticks out as an unexpected early 2013 release is The Last Of Us.

    Rockstar have a recent trend of releasing their games in April/May (I called a May 2013 release for GTA5 as soon as it was announced. Easiest prediction ever.), a huge number of releases were delayed from last year so would naturally have fallen into this window, and the rest you could put down as the usual flow of Jan-May releases.

    Recently it has only really been June-July which suffers a drought, with at least one or two major releases a month before then. Yes this year's first half is a little busier than normal, but due to reasons unrelated to a console launch.

    Needs to be pretty powerful if it's going to be relevant for the next seven years. Nothing about those specs seem unrealistic to me.

    Will provide a significant leap over the current gen though. Should be a much more noticeable jump than from the xbox to the 360 (graphically speaking anyway).

    I really hope for once we get some proper big guns at release. It's been too long since a dev pulled out a real big hitter on launch day. Halo was probably the last one.

    With that spec I'd hope it was an automatic!

    PGR3 was the closest to a real AAA game, but nah, not really. PS3 had nothing major at launch - again, Motorstorm came closest, but nah.

    I remember the days when things like Super Mario World and Sonic Adventure were launch games. You're lucky if you get more than a few party games these days. And Ridge Racer of course. Every launch has a Ridge Racer.

    I can't actually remember what game I bought my 360 for. Hmm.

    I didn't buy the 360 for at least nine months as there were no must buys. Halo 3 was about a year after launch.

    Not quite launch I don't think, and to be frank it wasn't until the second one that it was really considered a AAA series imo.

    Like said halo the last. Literally bought the Xbox for it. One before n64 and Mario 64.

    Once I heard Oblivion was being made for the 360, I was there.

    How many times have the specs supposedly been leaked now?

    This is being confirmed by quite a few people. I'd be surprised if it wasn't very close to the mark.

    So if this is 12 Wiis duct-taped together, does that make it 6 WiiUs? :p

    8gb will be nice, though. I figured 4 or so.

    Isn't that 8800 a bit shit compared to what's out now already?

    Not really. You're probably thinking of the nvidia 8800.

    Interesting, they're going to be taking quite a loss on this I guess, all the better for gamers.
    All we need is for them to get some decent exclusives produced for it.

    The AMD 8800 hasn't been released yet, so hard to say whether it's shit compared to what's out now.
