    The HW release will take time for India .. as US will stocking up for its midnight launches..


    The console will take atleast a month to hit our shores.

    A month I can live with...
    But I heard that some of the former consoles were delayed here by years
    (dunno... since I wasn't here for any console launches before)
    Except the Vita.. (If that counts)
    But the Vita showed up here pretty quick :)

    Still remember, Me, Ania and a few friends camped out all night in the Cold in NY for the original xBox :)
    And this is what we came back home with: :)

    Ya... opening day.... launch day.. rather night..
    Every store competes with each other for customers..
    So they all offer bundle packs... with TINY discounts..
    Main idea tho is to move as much as possible.. since the systems themselves make next to nothing for the retailers.
    Most systems (except Nintendo) are sold at a loss ...

    This was the biggest bundle... usually better to get those.. max discounts..
    Plus what good is your latest greatest system without games? :)
    Also includes special connectors/cables and extra control pads etc.

    Appox USD 1,000 for these bundles.
    You'd be hard pressed anyways to get JUST the system anywhere till AFTER Christmas.

    All this is JUST true for the US and Japan, where there are 500+ people in line for the available 100 units in each store.

    EU is a completely different story.
    For the PS3 and xBox360 there were barely 20-30 people in line for 50+ available consoles in the EU.

    Intel CPU ?? (dat's the rumor)
    NVIDIA graphics chip built into motherboard
    2-4 GB of system RAM
    64-bit operating system: Win 8 compatible
    Next-Gen Kinect controller

    Wonder what Disk format's gonna be.. hard to imagine SONY giving them Blu-Ray.

    Around 3k for a pop up tent! Lol!

    My assumptions would be 8 cores ( 4CPU + 4 GPU ), running off DDR5 or some badonkadonk ram. A 1TB storage and option for full 3D gaming.

    You can get a LOT more for the PS3 IF your firmware is 3.55 or below :)
    Remember.. the new systems aren't going to be crackable for a while... so ~ 3K PER game on top of system at launch prices (~30K?)

    You being here means two things. Either Dawngaurd was not good enough or was too short.

    Perfectly un modded and genuine console with genuine games. I had a 250Gb 3.50 console. All i had were problems with that...

    Seriously going genuine might be expensive, but it offers complete peace of mind.

    Dude.. why do you think I have multiple consoles?
    I keep one genuine.... (also one for ntsc since I play a lot of US only games like the Madden and NFL/NHL/NBA games)
    And just the money I saved on the "non-genuine" ones actually paid for my "genuine" console :)
    (under 10 games pays for the new console)

    Sell a few of your "Original" games to get the moolah. :)
    Wires can be hidden.. mine are being hidden inside the walls....
    The Dust in India... that I can't help you with... I've been trying everything including sealing the rooms and using split ACs for ventilation..
    But nothing works :(

    No Official release date or HW specs are available for Next Xbox Console. MS is playing this one pretty close to the chest. Still, every now and then a rumor comes up online but no concrete info is available.
