New rumors on next-generation Xbox surface

Forbes is reporting some interesting new rumors on the next-generation Xbox game console from Microsoft. We have known for a while that the next generation console is in the works and is expected to the launch this year with the codename Durango.

Many of those rumors are expecting the next-generation Xbox to be called the Xbox 720. However, Forbes reports that it is now hearing that the official name for the console will be the Xbox Infinity. The image in this story is said to be a leaked image of the official Xbox Infinity logo.

A few other new details are surfacing in whispers along with the new logo including some details about the new Xbox controllers. Forbes cites sources at Microsoft who say the new console will be a generational incremental improvement from the current Xbox 360.
 
The one major upgrade that is tipped to be included with new console is a touch sensitive controller. The touch sensitive area on the new Xbox controller will be used to allow players to take advantage of gestures to complement the Kinect sensor bar.

The official reveal of the next-generation Xbox will be on May 21, 2013. Microsoft is betting big on this launch and people living in the U.S. or Canada will be able watch the live launch via Xbox Live and Xbox.com. The launch will also be broadcast on Spike TV.

Many gamers are concerned about the next-generation Xbox after rumors continue to insist that it requires an always-on internet connection and may block used games.

well not really, only to sheeple maybe. To any sheeple reading by any chance, it's the second digit that's significant(i.e. higher is better). The first digit just means it's newer and as we all know newer doesn't always mean better, but hey you're sheeple and were probably sold at newer.

...that fierce wooshing sound you just heard? Over your head? That's the sound of you failing miserably.

And I guess just in case anyone else is 5 minutes old and doesn't remember the previous, non-HD Radeon monikers...

ATI sold a broad range of Radeon video cards starting with the 7000, also sold as the Radeon VE, all the way up to Radeon 9600s. All of which were AGP parts.

So just imagine your mom blundering about on Amazon.com when she remembers you talking about how you'd love to have a new video card, and she stumbles across this:

Yup. You can still buy a brand-new 32Mb Radeon 7000 video card.
