    @pigsy2400 we don't need a Microsoft cross selling conference. Added extras are fine, but no one is going to buy a surface purely to use with the new Xbox.

    Just show us an amazing console with amazing games and don't make it all about Kinect.

    Haven't you ever heard of a "magazine"? You could scan in Boris Johnson's face for Gears of War: London, or run around killing prostitutes in GTA V as Angus Deayton (if you have an older magazine, naturally).

    Kinect 2 will be able to "outscan" images and for 400 points will alter your own face and body to resemble Marcus Fenix.

    I plan on getting the Lara Croft makeover but shielding my genitals with tinfoil to prevent them changing. Should be good for "crying game" style pranks.

    Any kind of MS reveal or conference about the new console will have all of the following.

    1. That dude from Rare in sunglasses who is really fucking "Wow! Cool!" that we don't give a shit about.
    2. Them wrangling on about sports we do not give a shit about along with with some sport stars we don't know or give a shit about going on about the new central media hub for watching the said sports we do not give a shit about. Don't give a shit.
    3. Some big name musicians and/or dancers promoting some Kinect game they clearly don't know or give a shit about that we do not give a shit about.

    It'll be all razzle-dazzle.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    @beastmaster it does seem as if the Microsoft reveal will be either incredible or hideously terrible.

    Basically MS will release 'Durango' and a 360 mini. The mini will not have a disc drive, but will connect to Durango and provide backwards compatability.

    It's a good idea but I feel a likely price tag of 350 + 60 will make the combination a little expensive especially when we still cannot play our boxed 360 games.

    Interesting idea ... It could work but then why not offer options of both units seperately and then an "all in one" true next gen box. I'd buy the latter...

    The way I've read it is that you still can use your 360 discs. You put 360 disc in Durango, Durango then routes the game through the 360 mini.

    That seems like a really clunky solution.

    Why can't my 360 provide backwards compatibility?

    It will likely use the Durango disc drive for disc BC.

    Xbox mini will be XBLA, streaming, GoD for a cheap price which might be quite neat with a good library and MS being more generous with deals.

    Seems like the best solution to be honest. Much better than fucking Gaikai.

    At the end of the day if you already own a 360 then you really have no need to sell it anyway.

    They aren't going to change design for one SKU, a bundle perhaps but I doubt there is high demand for that. This is the best solution and one consumers won't have to pay for if they don't care about BC.

    @ecureuil Seems logical to me. Avoids the costs of adding BC to all units, but allows people to play all their old games if they wish for less than the cost of a second hand 360.

    Much better than relying on cloud solutions that will be useless for 60-70% of people.

    If true it sounds like a really elegant solution. I certainly wasn't expecting something that clever.

    @Boab Given the 360 has BC for Xbox, in theory that box could do all three generations. That (on top of no used lock) would definitely give them a good step on the road to purchasability*




    *Is this a word?

    Needs a hard drive for original Xbox and a 7GB partition. Depends what MS do with storage on the mini. They might just stick a small amount of flash memory in over a hard drive to help make it considerably smaller.

    A bundle would work. Also the inevitable hardware shrink for the slim could bring an all in one unit causing most people to rebuy

    By the way, have you seen the Playstation store ad on the left?
    That's EXACTLY why I don't want download only games and no used games.

    59.99 for Tiger Wood 14?!
    49.99 for Bioshock Infinite

    13 more than even GAME for something with fewer overheads? Oh yes please Sony.

    Jeez.

    @espibara To be fair, mini by Xbox standards isn't that small either...
