According to an inside source, Electronic Arts got a very early dev kit for the 360 successor from Microsoft. The source also believes that a launch by 2012's end is possible, with initial details revealed at this year's E3. Neither EA nor Microsoft are confirming this rumor.

this E3 is Nintendo's turn to shine with the new hardware .

Then again usually all Sony, MS, and Nintendo have BIG surprises; so i wonder what they could be

i doubt we need a 360 successor right now anyway that is.

There is no *need* for the XBox360/PS3 successor yet - the hardware is still fairly on-par with what a high-end PC can do. Untill there is a technological leap between what "can be done" and what "is done at the moment", so such successor will emerge.

And basically kill the Kinect, Microsoft's most successful game add-on?

Hell no, they'd be brain dead to do that.
The way the Kinect is set up they could theoretically have their new platform use it as a peripheral. Keeping back compatibility with all Kinect games and opening an entirely new library. Still a weird move but I reckon its doable. Hell we can make it work on the PC, why not another console with USB ports?

Personal opinion doesn't indicate it's the true story. The Xbox 360 and PS3 successors won't be here for at least another year or two, the Wii is the only console of this generation to really see sales drop as of yet. Announcing an Xbox 360 successor will only cut the profits for Microsoft instead of doing them any good.

I don't think that's gonna happen.
Do 360 owners really want or need a new X-box yet?

Why did i read the topic as Minecraft -_-
Over-dosage of Minecraft is bad for health.

On-Topic:- It's a false rumor, I expect E3 2012 to have some announcement but not this year, nope.

Its more a case of "Current high-end PC's are limited to what the current gen consoles can do" ,sorry but the days that the PC lead the pack is over, 95% of the current pc games are console ports and devs openly admitting not being able to fully utilise the current GPU's due to the directx API

Uhm... no.

Have you seen any recent PC games? They surpass what consoles show graphics-wise, even if ever-so-slightly.

Current PCs wipe the floor with current consoles.

Don't make me shove 500 benchmarks down y'all's throats.

That's just silly.

A high-end PC is much more powerful than a PS3/360.

As for the 360 successor, it's probably not true.

I am hoping it does turn out to be true, though.

Obviously this is all true, PC's always have been and always will be more powerful then consoles. Thing is, developers aren't even fully utilizing this power, rarely games show off the PC graphics prowess significantly more than what you see on the consoles. It's just not worth the bonus effort - games already look "good", hence my statement that an XBox360/PS3 successor will not emerge anytime soon - there's no market for it.

They would be significantly more expensive then today's consoles and despite the power they'd offer, the experiance wouldn't change much.

It's very hard to spot any major differences between the PC version and the port of games unless you have a really massive High-End and you're a graphics whore while at it.

QUOTENO.
There are only 10 games for the Kinect, and they already want to kill it?
HELL NO.

Kinect is a perhaptial, not a console. It could just as well be compatible with the XBox360's successor, much like a Gamecube controller is compatible with a Wii. The big "Kinect's gunna diez!" scare is baseless.
