  • After watching the AMD CES conference, this quote from Phil Spencer basically confirm the info Brad Sams leak two weeks ago about the Microsoft plans of releasing two next generation Xbox models in 2020.

    Quote:

    "As a company, we look at the opportunity in gaming and one of the things I want to say is when we think who our partners are, we think about great companies that do great work, but also do it in the right way.

    You’re somebody that I respected a ton in this industry and I’ve seen the way you’ve led AMD, and I think having a partner like AMD that works so collaboratively with us on our future technology, but also as a cultural level I think fits so well, it’s awesome to have you as a partner.”

    As we look forward to future platforms that we’re building and work that we’re doing, the partnership and the innovations that we’ve seen in the past have led to what we’ve been able to do today, I think they’re going to be critically important to our future endeavors.

    I’m really looking forward to showing those to people more in the future.”

  • Xbox Boss Phil Spencer Confirms AMD Partnership for “Future Platforms” at CES Presser



    The AMD CES 2019 press conference has come and gone, and it contained some pretty big news for PC gamers, including the announcement of AMD’s 3rd Generation Ryzen desktop processors and the beefy new Radeon VII graphics card, but it also included an interesting moment for console gamers. During Dr. Lisa Su’s opening keynote, Xbox boss Phil Spencer hit the stage to praise the CEO and confirm that Microsoft and AMD will be partnering on “future platforms”…
    “As a company, we look at the opportunity in gaming and one of the things I want to say is when we think who our partners are, we think about great companies that do great work, but also do it in the right way. You’re somebody that I respected a ton in this industry and I’ve seen the way you’ve led AMD, and I think having a partner like AMD that works so collaboratively with us on our future technology, but also as a cultural level I think fits so well, it’s awesome to have you as a partner.

    As we look forward to future platforms that we’re building and work that we’re doing, the partnership and the innovations that we’ve seen in the past have led to what we’ve been able to do today, I think they’re going to be critically important to our future endeavors. I’m really looking forward to showing those to people more in the future.”
    It’s long been rumored the next Xbox will be powered by AMD tech, specifically a Zen 2 processor and a custom “next-gen” GPU, but this is the most explicitly it’s ever been confirmed by Microsoft.

    Microsoft is rumored to be working on a full line of new Xbox consoles, including a disc-less streaming device that may launch this year, a mainstream successor to the Xbox One S codenamed Lockhart, and a souped-up Xbox One X successor codenamed Anaconda. The fact that Spencer mentions future platforms, plural, seems to indicate all of these will be powered by AMD tech.

    I’m sure you all have thoughts about Microsoft partnering with AMD for their next generation of consoles. Try to discuss it calmly, below.

                The streaming wars are about to begin with Microsoft, Google and Amazon, but Microsoft have the upper hand here with Azure, xCloud, Game-Pass and all the first party studios creating content for the service.

                Sony will have a tough road ahead with their streaming plans, sure they have the games but what they don't have is a good infrastructure or service. PSnow it's trash even Nvidia shield or Google project stream is waaaay better than PSnow.

                Sony fans will have no way to compete against those three in the long run because they'll be too far behind in market share to catch up.

            • PS5 and Next Xbox To Be Revealed At E3 2020, Will Be Traditional Consoles, Says IDC Analyst

              IDC analyst Lewis Ward believes that current gen systems still have a couple years of life left in them.



              While some analysts have made the prediction that the next generation of Microsoft and Sony’s consoles will be revealed this year and launch in 2020, IDC analyst Lewis Ward has suggested that that might happen a little later than expected, predicting 2021 releases for both the PS5 and the next Xbox. Owing to that, recently, while speaking in an exclusive interview with GamingBolt, Ward projected that both systems would be fully revealed at E3 2020.

              Ward says that there is a possibility that both the PS4 and the Xbox One get “modest hardware refreshes” in 2019, and that, coupled with “a slate of AAA exclusives” for both systems, will see the consoles being properly active for another two years, making E3 2020 the right time for Sony and Microsoft to talk about whatever comes next.

              “Not if 2019 gets a modest hardware refresh, as I expect from Microsoft and Sony, and sees a middle-of-the-road slate of AAA exclusives,” Ward said when asked about whether he thought 2019 would be the right time for a next-gen reveal. “If the plan is to give this assumed hardware refresh two years of runway before next-gen systems arrive, then 2020’s E3 is when Sony and Microsoft will be unveiling their new systems.”

              We also asked Ward whether, owing to the success Nintendo has seen with the Switch and its console-handheld hybrid design, that is something that Sony and Microsoft might attempt to do with their hardware too, but Ward believes that the two companies’ next consoles will be more traditional systems. “Right now, no,” he said whether he thinks a Switch-like piece of hardware is something Sony or Microsoft might be interested in making. “I’m thinking PS5 and the next-gen Xbox won’t have built-in screens and will have disc drives.”

              Our full interview with Ward will be going live soon, so stay tuned.
