Whoa, what am I talking about? Well, dear readers, apparently news of next gen consoles have been fluttering about in the interweb. Possible designs for the next PlayStation 4, Microsoft’s answer to Sony’s next console, freakin’ Wii U – which everyone seem to have a hard time absorbing – from Nintendo, and all kinds of weird stuff even gamers can’t take in. The XBox 360’s name alone should make everyone think, but what really stings me(pisses me, really) is how people assume that the next console Microsoft is going to put out is XBox 720.
Rumors are just that, until of course an official announcement has been made. A couple of, let’s say, enthusiasts so magically and very randomly found out, through leaked documents, the details of the possibly the next console from Microsoft.
Check out these concept designs. Unlikely, but we can dream can’t we?
