The next xbox has already been said to come out this Christmas, so any thoughts on Halo 5 release? I looked at the details, and Halo 4 took about a year and a half to make, and Halo 5 was started summer 2012. Will Microsoft and 343i try and push for the game to launch with the new console, or will they wait until enough people buy the console to release the game?

Can you link me to where someone has said the next Xbox is coming out next Christmas?

I have my money on 2014 or 2015.

Yeah I'm inclined to agree with this. The console generation has been increased significantly, and I don't see why Microsoft or Sony would split their market as early as Christmas. I do believe we will likely hear an announcement this year though (E3 or another trade show seems likely), but not for a 2013 release. Holiday 2014 or 2015 seems far more likely.

This is an update on the release of the new console.

With this info, any thoughts on Halo 5?

Rumors and speculation does not equate to a release date. A release date has yet to be announced and wont be until at least this Summer.

I have a hard time believing that the next Xbox will be announced at E3 in June (which seems likely) and then released 6 months later. I suppose its possible, but it doesn't seem very likely at all.

Also the release seems very dependent on an announcement from Sony. Both Microsoft and Sony are keen on maintaining their current customer base, while not wanting to lose ground to the competition. Since Sony hasn't even announced yet, it seems even less likely that the next Xbox will come out this year.

Holiday 2014 seems far more likely and far better from a business perspective from Microsoft. On the other hand, if Sony announces the PS4 is coming out Christmas 2013, then all bets are off.

The xbox 360 was released in 2005 though, and when Microsoft gives a ton of leaks like they have been you can expect something soon. And even though Sony and Microsoft are competing, what makes you think Microsoft will let Sony make the first move? Microsoft could try and get the console out soon enough it still might take a while for the PS4 to come out. Waiting until this E3 conference makes sense along with the suspicion they want to catch Sony off guard

This is actually why I don't think its coming out this year, there have not been a ton of leaks. Very little is actually known about Microsoft's next console, and currently nearly everything being said about it is just speculation.

I don't think Microsoft wants Sony to make the first move, but both companies know they already have a substantial built in customer base. Either company splitting them now would be a huge mistake (something we all learned from Sega a few console generations ago).

Both companies want the inside track so an announcement by either will force the hand of the other. I have a hard time believing that either company isn't at least somewhat aware of the others release window though, and right now it seems like the best guess would be holiday season of 2014 or 2015.

Just from a practical perspective I don't see why releasing this year would be necessary or even wise. Good games are still coming out for both systems, and new technology has recently been utilized for both. Releasing an entirely new system would waste the development and good will garnered from customers garnered by these developments.

While I wont rule out a 2013 release entirely, if it happens, I will shocked and very disappointed by Microsoft (and/or Sony), not just as a gaming industry consumer, but as a gaming industry spectator who thinks this is a significantly and potentially costly mistake for the industry.

Chances are the new xbox will have either a second tray or same disk, because Halo 4 just came out, and even a 2014 release wouldn't give the game much time. Plus, every original xbox game would likely be lost, and I don't think Microsoft would completely restart their game count. It is very unlikely they would want to throw away Halo CE, being such a big part of FPS development.

Are you talking ultra graphics with full AA and anisotropic filtering running in 1080p with 60 FPS?
That would take a 2000 dollar rig basically.

Right now consoles basically play PC games at 30fps on low graphic settings.

Yeah, this wont be a PC-console mash, but the graphics will be better than any other console out.
