XBox 2 Planned for September

Microsoft are not known to stand idly by while they lose money. As far as XBox is concerned they seem to be doing the same. Plans for XBox 2 are well under way, with a reported release of the re-vamped XBox in September, 2002. What are those plans? The reduction of hardware prices.

Apparently Microsoft have already managed to squeeze their DVD suppliers to a 30 percent reduction and are now pressuring Intel and nVidia, their processor and graphics suppliers. Those two companies will be harder to convince however, since both seem to be complaining about XBox sales so far. Intel even went as far as to say in its most recent financial report that the Pentium IIIs it is supplying to Microsoft show "flat growth".

Microsoft are so focused on price cuts though, that they are willing to change suppliers if they don't get their way. The success of their competitors and their dwindling XBox sales are a serious incentive to bargain hard. With recent XBox sales estimates from Microsoft dropping from 6 million units to 4 million, it is obvious that something has to be done. It is refreshing however, to see that MS are willing to do what they claimed they would i.e. stick with it in the console market and stay for the duration.

XBox 2 Planned for September

Let me be the first to say this:The video game console industry is moving way to fast. What i mean about it "moving way to fast"is that they make a new consle within 5 or less years and each time they make a new consel the years get reduced.I rember when the old games systems came out they were suported for a least decade. Whats it goin to be now a new consel everymonth. f**k THIS!I got barely enough money to buy the systems out right now.

XBox 2 Planned for September

No, KopyKat just price cuts, and possibly lower quality parts and compatibility issues.LET'S JUST TAKE THIS AS A SIGN, PEOPLE. Get a PS2, the stable choice for consoles. Or, get a Gamecube, host of Nintendo's masterpieces... but don't get an Xbox. Microsoft doesn't need any more of your money.

XBox 2 Planned for September

What the hell is wrong with you sceptical lame arses. i bet you people were the same people bagging the Playstation when it first came out. Microsoft is new in the console market and everynew comer gets a tough go. give microsoft a chance, if i hear anymore people bagging the XBOX, i'm gonna fry their PCs into burnt junk!

XBox 2 Planned for September

Hawk, i was mainly directing my comments to lame arses like you. get a life. PS2 is old news. if like Sony, dream about PS3. Gamecube is just plain dodgy, and will never beat any next-gen gaming platforms in the areas of hardware power. they may have good software/hardware sales, but that's only because most people who buys it are small kids, who couldn't remember what they have or what they don't so in many cases, they buy doubles.

MS can replace most of the parts in the xbox as they are just generic. But they could have problems if they piss off nvidia. I own a xbox, and im all for them being cheaper, so I can kick all my friends ass's on halo :)

Look Gods Hitman I have an XBOX and a PS2 and ok the XBOX has better graphics but the games on PS2 are far better I mean HAlO is ok but GT3 is a far better game ok so stop calling PS2 because it will be here long after the XBOX has gone.People get the console they want does it really matter to you if its a PS2, XBOX or a Game Cube so stop all this stupid calling other consoles.

*Sigh* For all you PS loves out there, allow me to thank you for showing your 'true' maturity. Yes, h4ckz t4lk really makes you look 'cool' and swearing just tops it off. This only further convinces that the bunch of PS fans out there are little 14 year old kids, or people with the maturity / intelligence of ones. Oh Hahaha, you rock! *insert sarcasm*If MS decides to go economical to lower the price of the Xbox, so what? You think the PS2 is REALLY worth $299 or even $199? Give me a break, the hardware inside that machine probably tops out at a price tag of $50, mabye $75. Two years ago when it came out, MABYE it was worth that, not now. And the hardware inside the Xbox is worth $400, and they're selling @ a loss currently. Unlike the people at Phony (Sony), MS is genuinely interested in the gamers, rather than sitting on their butts and counting their profits.Sony can take its PS2, & PS3 (in 2005) and cram them. I'll stick with a real American product rather than some two bit piece of cheap Japanese tech.

well microsoft wouldnt have to be making another system if the first hadnt taken a crap like it did. playstation has way better games at reasonable prices unlike the xbox. i bet that the Re-Crapped Xbox will do just as bad as its one year old bro eh. Playstation has a bright future in its sites so uh think about it. Nigga Mick learn how to talk jesus christ man. Playstation will lead the way in the future of console gaming for years to come.

XBox 2 Planned for September

Rammstein, if you'd do you homework and actually read the article you'd see it isn't a 'new system'. Perhaps you need to learn howto read English.The PlayStation is a joke, it's hardware and abilities are lagging waay behind and it's only two years old. I have PCs that hold up better to the test of time than that Console is. Why do you think you see all these PC games being ported to ONLY the Xbox? Because ONLY the Xbox can handle the requirements. The main complain of everyone about the PS2 is the lack of a hard drive. It's technology is dated, its time is past. If Phony would've had an ounce of fore-sight in creating the console they wouldn't be in this mess currently. The PS2 is steadily loosing ground in all it's markets save Japan, and what's it losing ground to? *Gasp* The Xbox.As far as the GC goes, it's a good console for kids, I congratulate the people at Nintendo for correctly targetting and producing a console for their market. The PS2 is just failing outright.So what if the Xbox is doing a bit of parts juggling, to me that shows that the company is genuinely interested in creating the best console for the best price for its consumers. What is Sony doing? Counting its cash and sitting on its ass.

XBox 2 Planned for September

Rarely do I get between people and their opinions, no matter how flawed, but this person just needs to be told. Tagge, this is for you.Your arguement is severly flawed.The PS2's abilities are not far behind the XBox's and are far above the abilities of the Gamecube. Out of the three systems, the Gamecube has the most realistic system capabilities (24 poly's per pass rendering ability I believe). By realistic, I mean that it is the only system of the three that may ever use it's full potential. The average polygon count in a PC game is not yet over one million, let alone the 70 or so million that the PS2 can render per pass or the 110 or so that the XBox is capable of. Abilities lacking indeed.As far as your 'test of time' statement, you should know that the PS2 is still the dominante console on the market, and it even gained in sales by 60% (it might have been 68% i cant remember, it was in one of the 'console wars' articles here on megagames)during the month that the XBox and the Gamecube were released. I'd say that time has been rather kind considering that the PS2 is 2 years old and still rising.PC games being ported to the XBox only? I can only think of one, Morrowind, and only because Microsoft constributed funds to it's development (and pushed the PC release date far back too, which was not nice).As far as a PS2 hard drive, I had never heard, read, or even seen any complaint of a lack of hard drive before the XBox's final specs were released. When the PS2 was designed, a hard drive was not needed. Adding one is simple, since Sony was kind enough to put a multi-purpose expansion port on the PS2. If there is ever a need for one, I'm sure that several companies will come rushing to our aid (one will probably be released when the network card is available). I do not anticipate the need for one, personally, so I can save myself the expense of unecessary hardware.The last two paragraphs of your post tell me just how little you have

XBox 2 Planned for September

post cut short, continue reading here:read on this topic. I suggest you read more information before coming to a conclusion about the market viability of the PS2 and about Microsoft's incentive to sell their product.Sorry for the long rant, but someone might read your post and think that you 'know' something about this topic.

i think that Microsoft should have waited at lease 2 years beacuse if you are the regular joe you can not afford to get the XBOX2 of you just have the fisrt one and i thenk that microsoft is going to find out that they should have waited 2 yaers

XBox 2 Planned for September

What is this a Sony brown noser?The PS2 is considerably undergunned in comparison to the XBX, and any perceived GPU advantage you interpret from it's specs over the NGC disappear in the face of a CPU almost twice as fast as the PS2's.Compare the games side by side.Case in point, the local Best Buy here had an XBX and PS2 going side by side on 36" TV's, both playing NHL 2002.The PS2 looked only marginally better than the PSX. Nothing much more really.The XBX version had player reflection in the ice, ice shavings kicked up from the skates and game play, players weren't so jagged.Graphically there was no comparison.And it's like that with any PS2 port you pick.Anything the PS2 can do, the XBX can do better.You may not seem to think that an hard drive or modem is important, but figure this much: you got half the machine an XBX is for the same price if you bought a PS2.Sony is gambling alot of money on the success of their online gaming network. A network that requires a further costly investment before you can even play on it.A PS2 similarly equipped as an XBX will cost over $550 dollars now, $430 after anticipated price drops.The XBX is $300 now, $200 after anticipated price drops.This september, only one console owner will be ready to play the latest online games out of the boxOUT OF THE XBOXGAME ON

XBox 2 Planned for September

This isn't a real X-2, it's a cost modified version-i.e. cheaper.The specs/performance will be near identical to the current platform.Think PSX-PS1, same machines basically-revamped.A REAL X-2 isn't even going to be considered until late 2003.It took 18 months from concept to production for the XBOX.The makers of the XBOX believe they can cut the R&D time needed for the X-2 to a mere 12 months from concept to product.

XBox 2 Planned for September

Well, I'm back again, and yet again I'm defending my position with a vengence. But, before I move onto utterly slaughtering the opposition. I would like to congratulate MJ for being the ONLY person I've had the pleasure of conversing with on here, that's able to speak the English language decently. However twisted your opinions and unbased your facts are, you can still communicate with a proficient ability, a rarity on these boards apparently.Anyway, back to the matter at hand. As, I've said the PS2 is a lumbering dinosaur of the console market, irregardless of it's producers ability to brain wash the market. But, so I'm not accused of 'baseless' accusations myself anymore, allow me to backup that statement with pure unadulterated facts.Xbox Specs: [url removed] - Xbox Detailed Specs Courtasy XBoxHackz.comPS2:[url removed] after I'm sure your detailed reading of those articles, please get your facts before you mouth off MJ. I really congratulate you however on having the 'balls' to stand up in the face of boundless documented factual evidence and be completely illlogical. (Next Post For Rest)

XBox 2 Planned for September

Now, before I move on I will admit the PS2 does have the majority of the consoles sold in the market, but 2 years head start will do that for a company. While Sony was busy producing a slap happy piece of technology for the masses, Nintendo and Microsoft where well underway in their quests to produce 'superior' gaming machines. Something that both companies did with success in their respective markets. And, now that the Game Cube and XBox are out of the gates, the PS2 is steadily losing it's dominate market share, so give that fact, 1 mabye 2 years. With the Xbox staying competitive to the PS2 price, and the Game Cube keeping it's same cost, things for the PS2 are going to slide steadily. Sony took too much time sitting on it's butt counting its profits, now they're going to pay for that arrogance. While the GC and the Xbox are bringing out their online strategies in full force, the PS2 will still be sitting idly by.On to your next point, no PC ports for the XBox save Morrowind? Give me a break, allow me to rattle off the ones I can think of that off the top of my head.Elder Scrolls 3: MorrowindsStar Wars: Knight of the old RepubGhost Recon; Commandos 2;Crimson Skies; Duke Nukem Forever;Hitman 2;Medal Of Honor: Allied Assualt& Myst 3;But, please don't take my word for that long long list of games. Check out Gamespot.com, I'm sure you'll find other titles as well.

XBox 2 Planned for September

Lastly, let me address your ludicrus statement that a hard drive isn't 'needed' in consoles. For some of the titles I just listed their where two reasons they weren't ported to the GC or PS2, no hard drive available, and in the PS2's case the other problem was frame rate.Forgive 'me' for the long post folks, but I wouldn't want everyone here to think that MJ actually knew what he or she was talking about. MJ, I've said it before a million times, if you're going to pop off about a topic, 'do you homework'. Otherwise, shit down, shut up, and allow the people who know what they're talking about to sound off.

XBox 2 Planned for September

Bill Gates and crew r nuts! The system just came out and plans to update it r in the works! This makes me laugh. Do they not understand the history of the console market? It's not the system with the best hardware that comes out on top, but the system with the best games. And right now the games for the x-box are far from stellar. With Game Cube bringing out some heavy guns soon for it's system, it's only gonna get worse for the boys at Microsoft. If Bill and company want to do this sort of Tom foolery upgrade everytime they start losing sales, they should just get into the pc hardware market. In the very near future quake 4 and doom 3 will hit the scene for the pc and new video cards...Will Bill and crew then again have X-box 3 in the works??? what a bunch of morons...........

XBox 2 Planned for September

The console market is moving too fast for its own good. The advantage it had over the pc market was the fact that you could buy a "closed" system that played so called great games and no need to upgrade it. That very advantage it had is gone. In order for the console system to compete with todays technology it must change its 5 year time line to at least 2 years. And even then compared to the pc hardware market, that's too late. 2 years = 4 new video cards from Nividia and Ati as well as some "old" comers such as 3d labs and matrox...... The X-box hardware is obsolete already...in pc terms....Will the X-box run Doom3 or Quake4 or Unreal2 60 frames or better with the same visual kick as the next generation Pcs will? I think not. The one thing X-box has over it's competion is that it has the only programable gpu...and it supports vertex and pixel shaders.....So if you consider yourself a hardcore gamer and have to ration your hard earned money, the way the console time line is dipping...buy a pc and a good video card. Halo looks good for the X-box..wait until it comes out for the pc....and that won't even hold a candle to unreal 2 or doom 3......You want kick ass technology and cutting edge games...the pc is the only way to go.(unless you want to buy a new console every 2 years at 500 bucks a pop. Hell even the top end consumer video card cost less than that.)

XBox 2 Planned for September

drbreath, wake the hell up.The NGC library is barely half the size of the XBX library and they have both been out for about the same amount of time.XBX is new, what's Nintendo's excuse?Nintendo has good games on the way?Get outta here!No duh you genius, so does XBX.XBX IS THE ONLY CONSOLE ONLINE READY AS WE SPEAK.Irregardless of present market standings, the whole scene shifts in september with the online scene officially starting.Microsoft only has to get you to subscribe to their X-Zone.Sony and Nintendo both require costly(est. $40 for Nintendo modem) to costlier(Sony's $200 HDD/Adapter expansion kit) upgrades to their system IN ADDITION to getting a game and subscription.I just need to get a router/hub to connect my Mac, Dreamcast, and XBX to my cable modem at the same time.

XBox 2 Planned for September

Are you Sony geeks blind or what.The X2 is no more a new console than the PS1 was from the PSX.It is nothing more than a streamlined version i.e. PS1.The real X-2 is still on paper somewhere in Redmond.All guns and resources are behind the XBX division. The X-lite as I call it is nothing more than the smaller console footprint that some consumers wanted-DELIVERED.Much like the XBX S-Controller.Plus, the online games for XBX will ALL support voice link via the Game Commander(purported to be offered for free w/ subscription to the X-Net.The PS2 and NGC offerings do not presently offer voice link features in ANY game.

XBox 2 Planned for September

God's Hitman, it's stupid to assume Nintendo's good sales are because parents are idiots and bought things twice. "Oops? did I already buy a Gamecube? Can't remember."And you're wrong, the Gamecube is more powerful than the PS2 in several areas... but that doesn't matter. The differences in console ability is so minimal it only amounts a few more or less polygons here and there, and maybe some little fog and lighting effects. PS2 is OLD NEWS? Then OLD NEWS is leading the market.The big difference is games, and both PS2 and Gamecube have mainstay characters and games like Mario, Metroid, Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy, etc. They also have talented japanese game makers behind them. Xbox does not. Remember how rough it was for N64 when it mainly had American and European support, but little from Japan?

XBox 2 Planned for September

Anonymous you might consider the up coming Game Cube games to be "half the library" of the X-Box. Who cares. If a system has 10,000 games and the majority of them are crap. Who gives a rats ass if they have more. I Will tell you this much, you may not like the games Nintendo has to offer but Mario Sunshine, Perfect Dark, Resident Evil and co. will sell systems. Mario Sunshine alone will break records. That game alone will sell more than any other X-box game ever will. Nintendo is the ONLY console that has specific licened games. Exclusive to that system only. This is something Sony and Microsoft has been trying to create for themselves with no success.The exclusive games for those systems are average at best. Nothing cutting edge. It might be a "kiddie" game but Nintendo is one smart company...and they know the console market.As for online gaming..for consoles it's in its infancy...you will not see a major jump in online gaming for consoles for a few years yet. That's still the pc domain.

XBox 2 Planned for September

WILL MICROSOFT WANT TO CONTINUE SPENDING....THEY WONT MAKE A PROFIT UNTIL THE LIFE OF THE SYTEM IS FINISHED!!!! OF THE THE CONSOLES YOU MENTIONED...ONLY TWO STILL SELL HARDWARE....NINTENDO AND SONY. THERE IS ONLY ROOM FOR TWO CONSOLES ON THE MARKET...IT WILL TAKE TIME BUT ONE WILL FALL...AND I CAN'T SEE IT BEING NINTENDO OR SONY...NINTENDO HAS ITS FOLLOWING..VERY LOYAL..AND SONY HAS THE MARKET RIGHT NOW....

XBox 2 Planned for September

Hi im from down under. One of the main problem with u ps2 fans are is that you have all sworn an alleigance to your sony....get it into your thick heads all of the latest gen consoles are GOOD, xbox kicks the compititors in the hardware area...ps2 wins hands down on sales(for obvious reasons)... now all the ps2 fans who say ps2 has better games rememerb it has been out for almost twice as long as the xbox which is why it has more quality games, look at xbox 1 year and it already has some beuties..in aussue the xbox actually sells for cheaper than ps2 by about $50US.. and all customers who baught the console b4 the reduction get two free gemes and an extra controller. now if you say MS is'nt lookin after there gamers then you are a biased son of a bitch who would know the diff from red to blue...what im saying is STOP being biased and loyal to one brand,,,and for those of you who can only afford to buy one console stop payin out the other.....later

XBox 2 Planned for September

f**k you, get an original name. ha ha? i mean come on. you idiotic looser. the ps2 sucks crap. what good games do you have on it? Metal Gear Solid 2? suck shit, an enhanced version is coming to the XBOX called Metal Gear Solid X. So suck my d**k because you are the real looser who wasted your precious bucks on an worthless outdated console. P.S (no not Playstation) Tagge, are we half brothers or something because we seem to be on the same boat. long live XBOX, all who oppose us will be eliminated!

XBox 2 Planned for September

Hawk, what do you mean XBOX doesn't have Jap developers? i know many people have been saying that but if you grow some brains to go with your balls (since you must have a pair to against me) you should know that big Jap companies such as: Konami, Capcom, Tecmo, Namco, Sega (American, based in Jap) plus many more. What more would you want. i konw Square isn't on the list SO FAR but even if they're not, we have quality RPGs to beat FF such as Project Ego. and also, the Nintendo 64 never really had any developer supports from anywhere. they were mainly 1st party developers like Rare and in-house. there were a few but not that much "stars". if you look the XBOX supporters, we have Eidos, Sierra, Microsoft itself with greats like Dungeon Seige. please don't send in a come back bagging the Flight Simulator since i know ur going to. there are just so many developers backing the XBOX including the best from Japan. i simply don't know what more you would want. Final statement, get out of your little square, stop being skeptical and embrace new comers. the xbox may not have state of the art technology when you compare it to a $4000 (AUS) high-end PC, but i certainly rocks the house when compared to other Consoles.

XBox 2 Planned for September

Nintendo fans, i just read a comment made by an idiot who doesn't know how to put his name on the "Name" bob. he reckons that most Nintendo games will sell consoles better than the games on the XBOX. he reckoned that Mario Sunshine (ahem, cough, BULLSHIT!) will sell more than any XBOX game. let give you a piece of what we call fact. Halo a awhile ago, passed the Million Copies Sold mark. that may not be that special when you compare it to FFX but it broke records by selling that much the fastest. it was somewhere around 6 per minute. by fact, it broke records. so if i were you, i would look these things up before puting your 1 cent worth opinion in. then again, some of us just like to play games where it features a chubby little Italian stereotypical jumping around colourful hippy levels. oops, i liked that too when i was in Grade 2. give me a ring when you pass puberty. oh, by the way, Shigeru the "Game General" (cough) actually said that Mario Sunshine won't be such a step up from Mario 64, but instead a kind of extension. sorry, but looks like this time, the Gamecube won't have their major weapon in their Arsenal.

XBox 2 Planned for September

Final Statement for today, Pc owners. you guys reckon you're the kings of the world don't ya? let's see, in about 2 years time, without any upgrades, could i please see how your PC is handling? offcourse with an upgrade (for about $500+) you could keep up with the times, but by then, if a new console is made available, i can get a console (preferably XBOX 3-jk) that could perform just as well as the PC at that time. hell, the XBOX right now is running the same if not better than most top-range PCs. Plus, how much cheaper is it? i say it your reeeeeaaaaalllly into your games, get a PC. but if you're iiiiinnnnto your games, don't mind the tiny drop in frames and polies, get your prefered console. anyone PCs weren't designed for games in the first place, plus the loading times and the whole process of starting one up which uses up my nap time, leaves the PCs in the Dust. get a console if your into gameplay. get an XBOX if your into gameplay but a bit of better visuals as well, and get a PC if you want to be Bill Gates son. P.S. i know all this makes me sound like i hate the Gamecube and PS2 (i do hate the PS2 though) but not the Gamecube. the Gamecube is a good thing, with quality innovative games. i just like the XBOX better and just think most people my age would. seriously, PS2s are just a waste of money. you can get the same genre (types) of games on the XBOX but with better hardware parformance. plus their controller. Sony must have saved heaps in keeping with the same design. and the vibration on the PS2. Dual Shock 2 or Dual Slack? Snooze.

XBox 2 Planned for September

god's hitman.. u suck..face it..PS 2 is going to rule the market, Xbox will always be second best and Nintendo will always be last but will always be there.Why is Xbox so much of a failure???Because they buy all of PS2's games.. There will not be a PS2 game that will not be on Xbox a few months later. They will have twice the framerate and better quality yet simply because the game is a few months old already there will be crap all sales compared the the Ps2 version.Nintendo has gone out of the console market as console games have moved to violence and hard core action as the main theme.. this is what nintendo has no intention of doing lol... apart from resident evil, they are sticking with their bright and colourful mario games that aim at the age of 13 and under.dude.. more like get a xbox if u wanna get closer to bill gates..encase u hadn't noticed M$ windows is not the only operating system available on PCs. We do not have to have anything to do with Bill Gates on a PC.Anyone here would say that you are in love with Bill Gates

XBox 2 Planned for September

God's Hitman is only having to kick and scream right now because the XBox is having so much trouble. The CompUSA where I work just isn't selling them. And I think he's doing an aweful lot of ranting over things that nobody can prove right now.I haven't bought any of the new systems (except GBA heh heh). I decided not to do so until they had all been out a year just to see how they all do. I'm enjoying a PC right now.That's right, God's Hitman, PCs are actually kind of nice. I got a very powerful one for $600 and not only can I game, but do schoolwork, make artwork, and much more. Yeah, I'll have to upgrade later, but it'll come with the same power and options so it'll be worth it.You just need to calm down a little, God's Hitman. We'll probably all get the systems that host the games we like. I like Street Fighter, Mario, Metroid, Zelda, and Final Fantasy, so you know what systems I'll get. You may like Halo, Oddworld, and some of the others, so enjoy your Xbox. Jeez, why's everyone arguing when it's that simple?

XBox 2 Planned for September

god's hitman...the truth is that mario sunshine will sell better than anything halo has to offer...same with zelda. halo was a wicked game, however, more people know the mario and zelda name. it will sell systems. as for your rant on pcs....the truth is out there. in august when nividia and ati bring out thier next generation video card which wil be two full generations past x-box's nv20 chipset, it will cost 300- 400 dollars. a little less for the ati card and 3d labs and matrox is bringing one out. i have a radeon 8500 and 1 gig system far from $4ooo bucks..lol and i can paly any game in full res and max detail...my monitor can handle over 1600+ right now at the moment x-box games are just barely looking as good as the pc. in 2 - 3 months that will end. and doom3 and unreal2 and quake4 will come out for both formats. which one do you think will look better? all three games will take advantage of direct x9. those games are do next year. with amd and intel bringing out new cpu technology and direct x9 on the horizon (oh x-box does not support that in its chipset.) once again as the history of consoles vs. pcs shows..as time passes, consoles falls behind because it can not keep up with technology. oh and your x-box 3 when it comes out that will cost you another 500 bucks....and in 1 year after it's release..guess what, two more generation of video cards will have come out for the pc...last point advanced vertex and pixel shaders will become more advanced and more game developers will use this technology more. consoles will fall behind in that realm as they wont have that technology, so the graphic visuals will suffer. yes it's true x-box has a programable gpu and vertex shaders, however its of the geforce3 variety and that card is obsolete now.......
