    Why would they pick that? Unless they want to appease more to the Japanese market. Xbox Black.

    No idea just a rumour going round. No idea if true or not.

    Funny you should mention that, Phil talked about the naming today. Though I agree with the other poster in that Kuro doesn't make sense to me but who knows.

    Xbox Cloudbuster then. :p Kumo is the Japanese word for cloud. It's very similar sounding to kuro.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the name is something ridiculously cloud related, as that is such a big focus of next gen. Maybe "Stratus" or "Nimbus" or something equally ridiculous.

    I can't see that happening as a console is not a PC

    The new button on the Xbox controller is equivalent to DualShock 4 "SHARE".

    A few interesting bits of info in the article. New controller looks good. Also that the console can be used either horizontal or vertical is a feature is actually absurd.

    Yeah, I'm really glad they didn't change the controller too much. The Xbone pad is just perfect in my opinion. Although the new D-pad looks horribly like the janky 360 one, even if it is based on the Elite controller. But I've never seen one of those so I don't know what it's like.

    And the first example of what Xbox Series X can do with Hellblade II.

    Looks nice but a stupid name that could potentially confuse customers like wii and Wii u did

    Sounds more like an Nvidia GPU.

    It's the same as the Elite disc dpad, but with a different design on it.

    It's a big old glorified PC with an Xbox logo on it lets be honest.

    It will still sell millions no doubt but yeah, not a fan of that design to be honest.

    Over to you Sony....

    Lol I thought it was some sort of joke when they announced it lol.

    But looks like it isn’t, so it’s a mini pc tower sort of console. Looks interesting, I’ll have to have a look and see just how big it is before I decide to upgrade from my Xbox one x.

    If the PS5 looks anything like the dev kits that were leaked a few weeks back then that is one fugly looking console.
    But will be interesting to see what the new PlayStation looks like ie the final product.
