    If it's next gen then I would want beefier systems and a bit later, now now.

    why ?

    If we get a new system every 4 years even if they are less beefy its better imo than more powerful systems every 7 years or so.

    Just show me gameplay demos of GOW4, Detroit and Horizon Sony, anything beyond those are simply icing on the cake. They can reveal Neo whenever they want or delay everything else to whenever they want I could care less:). Actually do some me something from Sucker Punch or Insomniac tho. Not a hard task is it Sony? Being a graphics whore and all, the thought of seeing some upcoming games with eye melting graphics in the matter of 24hours is a little more than unbearable, there goes my weekend sleep.

    Detroit still does not have an announced year of release, so I think there is a chance that it will miss E3 [except in game lineup reels] and get stronger push at Gamescom/PGW.

    I did hear whispers on Gaf that Detroit will be there, fingers crossed. Anyway here's something I made for fun to kick things off this E3:).

    I'm confused. Neo's reportedly not even going to be at E3.

    There may possibly be a 2TB Xbox One model announced.

    You've been played ;). The soon as Spencer reveals Scorpio you would see a secondary protocol (an already planned beefed up Neo) gets revealed by Sony. Nothing is what it appears to be:cool2:

    Phil Spencer comments are a bit interesting - so my hype is that NX is just a partnership. Nintendo and Xbox partner up to bring us VR Zelda next year on Scorpio Rift 2.0! :runaway:<3:runaway:<3:runaway:

    His comments were at fanfest - as seen on Reddit via FaceBook stream.

    There must have been hookers and blow too considering they're using Nvidia.

    It'll be easy enough to get the games to the point where they don't drop frames. They just need to further reduce resolution, graphics quality, graphics options, reduce rendering complexity, etc. If you make something that looks like it should run on the original PlayStation (exaggeration), for example, I'm sure they wouldn't have any problems hitting a consistent 60 FPS.

    IMO, the most believable rumor I've seen is that XBO-T will have support for Oculus Rift (either current version of some unspecified future version) for VR (Microsoft's response to PSVR), that in turn pretty much sets the minimum bar (~4.85 TFLOPs) for how powerful the machine needs to be. But you never want to be at the minimum required if you want to impress people. So the XBO-T is rumored to be relatively comfortably above the minimum needed to support PSVR.

    Yeah sure...
    New os version with up to 1.6% better performance in some case on the dashboard, updated icons, and some windows phone related interoperability.

    Honestly this word should be dropped from the gaming community lexicon, especially events that are very PR in nature.

    Ok, I'm old, cranky and just plain cynical. But seriously it does make me cringe... :|

    That only shows what's available. You still need an XB1 to play XB games - they don't run on PC. I guess biggest possiblity here is MS making cross-platform play an option, so buying an XB1 game lets you download the Windows version as well and vice versa.
