Next-generation Xbox rumor roundup

By  •  Rumors, News

Microsoft Xbox

Official word on Microsoft’s next-generation Xbox — believed to be codenamed Durango — is expected to come out during the May 21 Xbox event with more details to follow at the company's pre-E3 press conference in June. Last month, Pete Isensee, principle program manager at Microsoft Xbox, told UBM Tech that, “In many ways, the next generation is already here in the form of natural user interfaces powered by Kinect.” Naturally, Microsoft wants to keep the focus on the Xbox 360, the Kinect sensor and titles shipping on the system; however, plenty of rumors have been popping up as the reveal grows ever closer.

One of the most controversial rumors is the Durango’s supposed "always on" requirement. Meaning an internet connection is required to boot any application or game. Allegedly trustworthy sources tell Kotaku the "always on" requirement was still planned as recently as March. They also said a network troubleshooter will display if the system loses connection for more than three minutes during a session.

The good news is nothing is official. It could be that "always on" doesn't affect games at all. With the poor consumer reaction and Sony officially stating the PS4 needs no internet connection in order to be used, it'll be interesting to see what Microsoft does.

Could Capcom's Strider series be making a return on XBLA?

Could Capcom's Strider series be making a return on XBLA?

Strider_Hiryu_(character)

The crafty members of NeoGAF's forums have discovered yet another possible unannounced XBLA game, Strider. Box art (found after the jump) was found on xbox.com some time in January, but was promptly removed from the site. The discovery went largely unnoticed until Polygon reported just days ago that a Steam achievement was also found for the game.

According to Eurogamer, a reboot of the series was in development at Bionic Commando Rearmed developer GRIN before the company went belly up in 2009. Capcom is expected to announce new games at PAX East this weekend. Could Strider be getting the remake treatment? Is it a new installment? Is it a re-release as part of the Capcom Arcade Cabinet? Possibly. The original release was in 1989, and thus far we've only received the 1985 and 1986 game packs. Either way, more of Strider Hiryu could never be a bad thing.
