Thread: X Box 2

  1. #1
    A couple of nights ago a friend of mine who thinks he knows everything with computers told me that a underground source informed him that that Microsoft had released a hardware development kit and that they had sent it off to Apple and that the X Box 2 was going to be run on Apple G4 Technoloigie. He assured me that Microsfot had confirmed it but refused to give away his source.

    Why would Microsoft, back a company which is OS terma, its at war with. It's like offering you enemy some money to buy a gun with.

    Mind you, myu friend is pritty stupid, he thinks all games come from Kazaa Media Destop (He thinks Kazaa Lite has Spyware and KMD doesn't ), and that they all come in .exe form .

    I heard this murmuring about some connection with Apple for Xbox2...And also talk of the new model having no HD...everything is gonna be stored on Flash memory?!?! I think 90% is all hearsay...You gotta take all this early news with a pinch of salt.
    I got Booted from Xbox Scene Forum...Proud??...You Betcha!!

    You're friend is right. The software development kit for creating Xbox 2 games runs on an Apple G4 system. I heard it on the video game news show Pulse on G4TV.

    And by the way, Gates owns stock in Apple too. A few years ago he helped save them from bankruptcy. Didn't you see Pirates of Silicon Valley?

    No HDD for Xbox Next....

    Moran indicated that in the hard drive's place would be one of his company's flash memory discs, which range from 16MB for civilian use to the whopping 47GB military variety. "At some point, when users want to save their e-mail messages, copy music, or anything like that, the only storage they’ll have is what we give them," said the CEO.

    what u failed to post though was the fact of those hdd prices. the price for a 40gb flash hd is $14,000 and for the price of the 90gb flash hd is $28,000. so, there is no way in hell those will be used....

    Come on, give it a year for new tech to come out and they'll be cheap as chips.


    I did hear the new Xbox will have dual IBM processors, 64 bit I heard also. Unconfirmed though, most of it is rumours.
