People writing off Xbox 720 based on “literally nothing” – Thurrott

Finally some logic.

Paul Thurrott, who leaked a lot of information about next gen Xbox, and also revealed that it will cost $500, has some choice words to say about people writing off the system based on initial rumours.

“For me, Xbox 360 is almost entirely an online experience. Most of the games I play are multiplayer, where you’re playing against other people online. Or you’re using it as an entertainment device when you’re connected to a service like Netflix or Xbox video, so that is an internet-connected device,” he said during What The Tech podcast.

“I look at all this stuff that I’ve seen about Durango and I think, ‘it’s all positive.’ I don’t really see any bad news here at all. Like to me, everything I’ve seen about this is really positive.

“It’s amazing to me that, based on like no information at all, everyone is like freaking out about everything. Aside from this online thing, by the way, the number one question I’ve gotten from people is, ‘What does it look like?’ Who gives a shit what it looks like?”

He then goes on to dismiss complaints about the next Xbox by saying that people have seen literally nothing about what Microsoft has to offer.

“I’ve actually heard from, by the way not one or two people, several people who’ve said, ‘based on what I’ve seen, Sony is going to blow them away.’ Based on what you’ve seen? You’ve seen nothing. What are you talking about? You’ve seen literally nothing from Microsoft.”

    He’s right. We’ve seen nothing. The PS4 was rumored to have 4GB of GDDR5 RAM. Instead, it has 8GB of GDDR5 RAM. Rumors can be wrong. Wait until Microsoft announces, then comment.

      All the rest of the rumored PS4 specs were dead-on accurate, to a T though, and the next Xbox’s specs included a GPU half as powerful as the PS4’s, a CPU that’s roughly on par and an inferior RAM setup. Pair that with the always-online focus and the fact that Microsoft’s games division is a joke, that they don’t seem to care about gamers anymore, and I don’t see why I should be excited for the PS4.
