Extremely reliable Microsoft blogger that covers their tech:

"Durango is going to be expensive [laughs], you know $500, $300 for the subscription, that kind of thing, but you know, Blu-ray, blah blah blah, but the thing that interest me, going back and looking at some of the stuff I got a long time ago, it actually says 'must be internet-connected to use' in the notes. And that's all I have, but it does say that.
Almost $599 dollars for a new Xbox. Oh the irony.

Also from the same guy: No backwards compatibility.

Thought he said $500...

But ya I don't get how MS expects to keep a sub fee model while simultaneously forcing you online. That's the dumbest thing i've ever heard.

Well 500 + game + live + tax + possibly extra controller, probably easily breaching 600.

That's still a guess.

I'd like to guess there's a PS4 + Vita bundle for $600 doesn't make it true.

Can't wait for E3 until all these companies actually announce sometime.

I've been a loyal xbox for a long time but I'm really leaning on going to sony with the next gen. Obviously I'll wait till xbox announces the console and it's details but all these rumors aren't looking good.

I honestly can't see how MS wouldn't be completely screwed if they required always online.

So the system would then be always online + would need a subscription to even be used online?

I don't see how they'd sell consoles.

It's a pretty educated guess. Live isn't going to be cheaper, if anything it'll be more expensive.

Games are also pretty much confirmed to be staying at 60, so just those two alone is probably a good +100 to initial cost.

Other than Live vs PSN how is that different than a PS4 though?

I'd actually be quite surprised if live went up in price. As a service it doesn't do anything...

It's Microsoft, they'll think adding whatever amount of services to it will justify a price increase.

Ps4 is likely to be $400 or $450, it has to be unless Sony is insane. Sony always sells consoles at a massive loss when first released going all the way back to PS1. If they keep the online free (and they should), it's a must buy for me at that price. Even the PS3 was sold at a massive loss because of Cell.

More news - Same source: Official unveiling 5/21, will be weaker than PS4. Price is driven up by Kinect 2.0.

If they bundle it with vita...I'll buy it on the spot.

That guy was a major tool too.

Shuhei said we might be see some difference in the PS+ upcoming. We might not have a ps+ for the PS4.

So May 21st now? That's not a smart move IMO pushing it back further after pS4 getting so much steam.

As a loyal Xbox and Xbox 360 owner, I am fully prepared to jump ship to Sony. I like how they offer much better deals on PS+, I've read that they offer free games and its cheaper than Live.

Plus all this Kinect crap annoys me.

PS+ is 50 bucks a year and yes they offer free games every month. You can still play online without it though, the ps+ has a lot of perks and what not though.

Don't think that's a problem, this far out from actual launch.

Both consoles will be just fine, performance wise. All they'll ever have to do is push 1080p, max.

They won't, see: John Carmack's tweets. It's highly unlikely your average game will push 1080p and/or 60 fps, because people would rather make their games look pretty. I hope we get 1080p games, but considering we didn't get many 720p games this gen, I am doubtful.

'Always on' for TV entertainment services but no mention yet if it will extend to gaming.

Microsoft is investing in TV in a big way with its next Xbox console as part of a fight for the living room. Multiple sources familiar with the company's Xbox plans have revealed to The Verge that Microsoft will introduce a feature that lets its next-generation console take over a TV and set-top box in a similar way to Google TV. We understand that the next Xbox will require an online connection to use the entertainment services, allowing them to be always-on for streaming and access to TV signals.

Might make the switch to Sony if the Xbox 720 won't offer backwards compatibility (which it looks like it won't).
