SiliconFreak -> Xbox 2 Premiere at CES 2005 ? (8/10/2004 7:24:16 AM)

Microsoft always said they wanted to beat the competition and be first out the gates with the nextgen consoles.

While Sony and Nintendo have already commited to do so at the E3 2005, Microsoft, so far, has been the only company not yet confirmed to show off the successor to the current console generation.

But Microsoft might very well stick to their promise and beat the competition by showing off its Xbox 2 at Consumer Electronic Show (CES), which is held in Las Vegas, January 2005, several months before its competitors.

Going back in time, it was Microsoft head honcho Bill Gates who unveiled the Xbox at the... CES 2001.

Last week it was revealed that Gates would be the keynote speaker at CES 2005, immediately prompting speculation that it would be deja vu all over again and that Gates might unveil the Xbox 2.

Microsoft is sticking to their typical stance of not responding to rumors and speculations, but on the other hand has not yet issued any sort of denial either.

I've heard that the Xbox2 will not be backward compatible with XBox1 [&:]

Anyone know if this is confirmed yet?

Hi Rexy Boy [;)]

I am not that much into XBOX, but did a little research on Your request...

As far as I could see (from the links that are written below - check them out), You were right...everybody says that XBOX2 WONT be compatible with XBOX1...[:@]

But on original XBOX page...there are no articles so far about XBOX2 and its compatibility with we'll need to wait a bit more to see what they will say about that...

Here are the links...

Compatibility 1
Compatibility 2
Compatibility 3

hey Sili-Boy [8D]

Thanks for looking into that! Looks like the XBox2 is not a good upgrade for those who want to keep playing Halo [:'(]

(I've been called a lot of things on here, including "dolphy" but never "Rexy Boy"...)

I'm quite sure that hackers have already some plans to make Xbox1 compatible with Xbox2 [;)]

SiliconFreak -> RE: Xbox 2 Premiere at CES 2005 ? (8/11/2004 7:44:00 AM)

No problem Rexy [:D]
( wasnt intend to insult or something like that...its just that sounded nice to me, so I wrote it - Rexy Boy) [:)]

And yes...guess Xbox2 upgrade isnt best thing to do...but then again...i am sure they will do something in that matter (compatibility with Xbox1), too! Otherways they might loose quite big ammount of potential buyers... [X(]

If nothing else..Leviathan is right i think...hackers did magic in the past...and so will in the future...we count on them... [;)]
