We all are eagerly waiting for the release of the new XBOX 720 ( aka Xbox 3, Xbox Edge, Xbox Next ).But it seems that we would have to wait for another 3 years as Microsoft probably wont launch the new version of Xbox until 2015.The Xbox 360 was launched in the year 2005 and the company stated that it would have a lifespan of about 10 years.So we can expect the new XBOX by 2015.They started working on the newer version of Xbox back from 2007 and expected the project would be complete by 2011-12.But even if they New console is ready to be mass produced , there are some issues that needs to be sort out before the launch of the console.
First of all , Xbox 720 would have higher graphics and flawless online gaming experience.But for the flawless gaming of such graphic intense games you need a high speed internet connection which is still not available in most of the places.
Secondly , The Xbox 720 would have high graphical output with 3D.Now this kind of output can only be enjoyed best on HD displays with 3D supportability.These kind of displays are not yet much popular.Hopefully in next few years they would reach to every household.Only then Xbox 720 would reach to its potential market demand.
Thirdly , The company is trying to make the best gaming console at the lowest price possible.It may take till 2014 to get 2TB hard drives, uber fast CPUs and state-of-the art graphics and sell at $400.If the price of the console is too high,Naturally the demand would get lower and competition would become tougher.In recent years the hard drive prices increased which was a major set back.And still high power graphic cards are pretty expensive.So the company is waiting for the prices to go down and launch the product at price as low as possible.
Fourthly , They want to lengthen the lifespan of Xbox 360 to get most out it.It was reported that Microsoft lost 1.26 billion dollars mainly due to Xbox 360 launch expenses.So its a good time to wait for the market to get ready for the Xbox 720 and meanwhile they can get profit out of the Xbox 360.
Finally , They are waiting of the cloud gaming technology to be stable.Xbox 720 would create a horizon in the field of online gaming.Most games would be cloud based where instead of buying DVDs/Blue Ray Discs you would need to buy subscriptions to play them.That is a great way to prevent piracy.The Video-game industry is loosing too much profit due to pirated games.Now the cloud based online gaming would put an end to these kind of pirated games and make the gaming industry highly profitable.,
