    I've seen the Xbox Infinity name & logo plastered about a bit, so I'd expect that to be the name.

    I hope for MS's sake they really don't follow through on the always-on. They need to undercut the PS4 in the price stakes as well, if the rumoured hardware specs come to fruition. I have a sneaking suspicion this will be Microsoft's Saturn - the generation where their hubris gets the better of them and a newly humbled Sony gets the headstart.

    I doubt it. They'd be likely to get sued for destroying his career. [Who would want to hire someone who can't keep their mouth shut?]

    Alas, I had not seen that story.

    I did think that using "Infinity" as your numbering was saving up problems for the generation after, probably for the best!

    Sony: Here's our PlayStation 3.
    MS: Oh yeah!? Well we have Xbox 3...60!!
    Sony: And now, PlayStation 4.
    MS: Well we're Xbox Infinity!
    Sony: PlayStation 5
    MS: Ummm, Infinity + 1?

    There is a few things that I would like to see or hear about at this conference:

    -the console (didn't really understand why Sony did not show the PS4 console at their announcement event)
    -how the kinect is going to impact the console.
    -some new exclusive IP's.
    -backward compatibility?

    Sony didn't show the PS4 console due to them holding a separate event at E3, which will prevent their main rival Microsoft from having an advantage of seeing what Sony has to offer before showing everyone the new Xbox. Also the Kinect 2 is rumored to be unveiled alongside the new Xbox and hopefully should have some new games made exclusively for the new Kinect.

    As for the new exclusive IP's we should hopefully hear about them at today's event or during E3, and for backwards compatibility it'll be interesting to see what Microsoft will have to offer. They could just as easily offer downloads via Xbox Live for the previous Xbox 360 and original Xbox titles like Sony is doing with the PS3 at the moment...

    I'm looking forward to seeing the xbox specs. At one time I'd have just said "Xbox" because I've had a dislike for Sony as a business, but this time it feels much more open for discussion either way. Truth be told, all the blahblah over specs will be misleading - from that point of view they'll both be superb consoles... so the question is which platform's "exclusives" will float your boat the most?

    On the subject of backwards compatibility, I just don't see how they can do it if they switch to AMD processors. There's no way an x86 can emulate a PowerPC at fast enough speeds (at present) to make it feasible.

    ^ What this man says. Dont hold much hope for backwards compatibility.

    Sony were going to use their Gaikai acquisition to do it, weren't they? Don't know how MS plan on managing it though - unless they port the PC ports back to the new Xbox...

    Which is why I'm in the PS4 camp, unless the announcement tonight blows my socks off!

    Lot's of talk about Gaikai being used for it but Sony seem to be saying "don't expect it day 1" , we'll get it dribs and drabs over a few years I expect. As for porting existing games - too many off them, would take the developers (who'd do the work, not MS/Sony) far too long to do. They've got better things to be doing - like making new games! Some will inevitably get ported but not something I'd hold my breath on...
