What Microsoft might bring with its Xbox 720 reveal event

nex gen xbox ban

After Sony firing the first shoot in the next, next gen wars Microsoft has yet to respond with its own event.

But rumors going around the internet say that we will soon see an event in either late March (around the time of GDC) or early April.
Microsoft has even recently acquired the domain name xboxevent.com leading to more speculation that an event is coming soon. So based on rumors and just what i know from seeing many of these events over the years, here’s my thoughts (and some wishful thinking) on what Microsoft might bring to the table…

It will all open with what you would expect from any media event, a bunch of boring talk on how great Xbox 360 has been doing, how many systems they have sold world wide, how its been the number one system in north America for the last 27 months in a roll and how great Xbox live is doing. Then they will talk about how far the system has come, and how the kinect extended the life of the system. “But now is time for something new, and here it is” (then Poof we get to see a shiny new Xbox system) “introducing the Xbox infinity the next generation of Xbox”  Then they will show us the new controller with built in touch screen and give the system specs, witch will be just slightly better then the PS4.  “Xbox infinity will be fully backwards. compatible with all Xbox 360 and Xbox arcade games right out of the box and Xbox infinity will not block used games”. Then they will show us Kinect 2.0, (witch will be able to do a lot more exciting stuff, like project the action on your walls). “But we are not done yet introducing the Xbox surface gaming tablet” (witch they will probably reveal at GDC or sometime before hand) with the new Xbox surface you can play all your Xbox infinity games anywhere in your home (because both Nintendo and Sony are doing it so they have to as well).  Now let us show you what the Xbox infinity can do ….

Next they will show us some next generation games that are in development, some tec demos and what the Kinect 2.0 and Xbox Surface can do.

Here is my best guess of what we might see based on rumors, what little info i have acquired and some wishful thinking. In no particular order….

Halo Waypoint Update Coming adding multiplayer GPS game to WP7

If the Kinect reveal for Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary wasn’t enough, 343 Industries also targeted fans with some new Halo Waypoint functionality at this weekend’s Comic Con. The downloadable app is getting real-time GPS tracking of multiplayer games via a new service called “Atlas.” Yes, seriously — while you’re playing a multiplayer game of Halo: Reach, you can use Waypoint’s GPS feature via Windows Phone 7 or the web (and other “mobiles,” we’re told) to watch troop movements from above.

The updated version of Waypoint also adds the ability to send challenges to friends, similar to the weekly ones set originally via Bungie and now via 343 Industries within Reach multiplayer. 343 reps explained that you’ll earn in-game credits for completing these challenges based on the difficulty of said tasks, but didn’t dive too deeply into how it will all work exactly.

We’ll find out soon enough, as the update to Waypoint launches alongside Halo Anniversary on November 15.

Apple founder Steve Jobs passes away at 56

Sadly, one of the greats of our time and a revolutionary of this technological world, Steve Jobs has passed away today. Apple sent out the following press release to confirm what the public was not looking forward to hearing:

“We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today.

Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve.

His greatest love was for his wife, Laurene, and his family. Our hearts go out to them and to all who were touched by his extraordinary gifts.”

Rest in Peace, Steve Jobs. Here at Green Circle Gaming, we will remember your contributions for a very long time to come. Thank you for the foundation that you laid before us, and to the bright future that is still ahead because of your work.

Windows Phone 7.5 ‘Mango’ update begins rolling out today

Windows Phone 7.5 (AKA Mango) is now officially ready to get pushed to existing devices, and in a big way. Taking lessons Microsoft learned from the update debacle that was NoDo, the company’s eager to do a much more efficient (and quick) job of rolling out its latest revamp. While Redmond didn’t offer any exact details on which phones would be the lucky recipients right away, it’ll be keeping the masses posted through its “where’s my phone update” page. If your handset is listed, hook it up to your computer, load the Zune client and there should be a lovely message waiting for you. As always, don’t feel too discouraged if your device isn’t available right away, since these rollouts have a habit of taking a bit of time to get to everyone.

In addition to the rollout, the Web Marketplace will also make its debut, giving Windows Phone users the opportunity to do what Android users already enjoy — the ability to surf for apps online and have them downloaded directly on the phone with no sideloading required. There’s one bit of sad news to relay to anyone that already has a Windows Phone, however: Microsoft confirmed to us that Internet Sharing — the long-awaited mobile hotspot functionality — will not be available for existing devices. There’s no word on if this will be offered through a future update or if it’s a permanent deal, but at least it’s only a single thorn in an entire rose garden of good news.
