Microsoft will finally answer the questions of DRM and more next week
Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) will announce its next generation console next Tuesday (May 21) ahead of the
2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo
Rumored to be named either the
or Xbox 720, the upcoming console stirred controversy over rumors that it would
use digital rights management (DRM) to ban used games
. Rude Twitter remarks
led to the firing of one Microsoft staffer
debate over the DRM grew heated
No one knows for sure, though, whether Microsoft actually planned the DRM or is sticking to such possible plans after the controversy.
What is expected is that the Microsoft console will
pack similar hardware
to arch-rival Sony Corp.'s (
. That console packs 8 GB of DRAM, aside a GPU and x86 CPU from Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (
). Given that NVIDIA Corp. (
says it isn't interesting in making console graphics
, it seems likely AMD could pop up in the next Xbox, as well.
The PS4 -- which has not yet been priced -- is
rumored to be priced between $400 and $500 USD
. The next Xbox is rumored to cost $500 USD, but also be
available in an ad-subsidized form
for $200 to $300 USD.
The console is rumored to introduce
1080p Kinect motion controls
, a work-in-progress that's been written about in leaks stories for some time.

Anyone who actually deals with hardware will tell you it's incredibly common to referring to "x86" as any CPU created based on Intel's x86 family. This means x86 and x86-64. x86 is more commonly just synonymous with being the "Intel" based architecture (or at least the common one).
head out of your a$s because you're clearly so full of yourself that you can't accept that you might be wrong every once in a while. Your arrogance is astounding.

Your lack of any recognition of reality is well-established here in these forums.
It's quite possible that I've been working in the computer industry longer than you've been alive.
You. Are. Wrong.
Deal with it.

Sorry, but it's you who is wrong.

lol, if only you could hear yourself talk. it always amazes me how people who are dumb and THINK theyre smart try to give themselves so much credit.
Hate to break this to you, but you're way overconfident in your analyses and you also have a severe anger issue, you may want to try therapy.
I don't have to deal with anything because I and the other dozen people posting against you are correct. Perhaps it is you who needs to accept facts and deal with it. You've been in the computer industry longer than I've been alive and you aren't that good at it.
