We are slowly, but surely getting a picture of what Microsoft’s next console is going to be like. It was revealed in Bloomberg today that Microsoft’s next console is going to be using an AMD chipset,and it combines powerful “Jaguar” central processing units with graphics chips, said one of the people, who sought anonymity because the plans aren’t public. The shift to the so-called x86 format ubiquitous in modern personal computers means Microsoft will drop the Power PC technology designed by International Business Machines Corp. (IBM), and game discs made for the current Xbox 360 won’t be compatible. The source also confirmed the May 21 reveal date, which is unsurprising, because the Xbox 360 was also revealed in May 2005 right before E3. This news is interesting because it is now making the new Xbox similar to Playstation 4,which is good news for gamers because ports of games will not be as drastically different as they were this generation. This will free up resources for more game development and possibly less instances of game delays, it has been discussed by many developers that the Playstation 3’s difficult to handle architecture caused many delays for their titles. We can all look forward to May 21 to learn more, and Nerdsynq will be covering the event to keep it here!!
