Xbox One Pre-Release Thread: Upscaled to 1080p! (11/22/2013)

Might as well get this thread going. Rumor is there's a Microsoft event in April.

[UPDATE: Microsoft partner Ustechs, which has worked with the platform holder on previous media briefings such as the E3 2012 press conference, has registered the domain XboxEvent.com]

So someone from Sony is speculating that Microsoft will have a meeting in April to announce a new console? That's crazy talk.

Paul Thurrott, a journalist, mentioned the April release a week ago. He was pretty confident about it (and still is).

I hope they don't call it 720.

How about Xbox 420? Match Sony's number again and commemorate marijuana legalization in Washington.

This doesn't sound all that shocking to me. It makes sense to have a dedicated console announcement event ahead of E3 in order to focus on the features of the console itself. Then you can focus on games at E3.

They need to do something. I'd be willing to buy a 720. 1440, though, would be too much. How about XXXbox Hardcore Gaming System.

They should just let sponsors duke it out every few years.

The Doritos Jacked Xbox. The Mercedes Benz Xbox.

The Trojan Magnum XXLBox.

I'd be happy if they just announced the name at this point. So tired of the 720 shit.

Then they would have to release a new one every couple years. They should just blow minds and go with XBox Orbis.
