xbox


A quick look at the traditional six-to-seven-year console cycle calendar I have sitting on my desk shows that the Xbox 360, first released in 2005, should be due for a replacement any time now. Don't try telling it to Microsoft, though, as the company recently told Bloomberg that "there will be no talk of new Xbox hardware at E3 [in June] or anytime soon."

"For us, 2012 is all about Xbox 360," company rep David Dennis told Bloomberg in an e-mail, seemingly ruling out the possibility that a new system will hit before the end of the year. With Sony President Kaz Hirai saying back in January that a PlayStation 4 won't be shown at this year's E3, and with his company still talking up a "ten year lifecycle" for the PlayStation 3, it looks like Nintendo's Wii U will be the only new home console hardware both at the industry's major E3 trade show this summer and for the 2012 holiday season.

Of course, Nintendo may need to act sooner than the others; the original Wii looks a bit long in the tooth these days, with hardware that can't push out HD graphics, sales well down from their late '00s peaks, and a relatively empty lineup of upcoming games. The Xbox 360 and PS3, meanwhile, are still selling briskly at newly lowered prices, with a good deal of developer support in the pipeline. Sony and Microsoft may be loath to slow that momentum with talk of new systems.

 Wii Breakfast

Classic Game Room reviews the NINTENDO Wii video game console! The Wii could be Nintendo’s best console since the original NES Nintendo Entertainment System. The Wii is a revolutionary gaming system and this Wii review shows what makes the Wii special vs. the PS3 and the Xbox 360. Is the Wii for you, would you rather play Wii fit or shoot things with massive laser cannons in HDTV graphics? The Wii may not be hi-def but it is hi-tech (owwww, that sucked!) and has a really unique controller that uses motion sensing technology and a nunchuk to make actions happen on the screen. The Wii is marketed as a unique social gaming console with a more family appropriate array of games. It gets you up off the couch (if you want that… boo standing!) and can have you dacing around the room playing games like Wii Sports Bowling, Golf and Far Cry Vengeance. This is a unique CGR review of the Wii not seen anywhere else, where Classic Game Room pours 30+ years of gaming experience over the Wii. Does the system have what it takes to be successful (it already is), will the Wii sell out in stores (yes), will the Wii dominate the universe in a way not seen since the Atari 2600??? With the unique controller, Nintendo proprietary games like Mario Cart, Super Smash Brothers Brawl and Metroid Prime 3 Corruption one could say the Wii has a chance… Wii vs. PS3 vs. Xbox 360. Bring it on into Classic Game Room stadium!
