Codename Falcon (Microsoft Xbox 360)

maltese_falcon.jpg

I’m not talking about the Maltese Falcon either. Although it would have been kinda cool if I was. I’m talking about Microsoft’s top secret project called “Codename Falcon”. “Falcon” is the project being secretly developed by Microsoft to not only improve the Xbox 360, but also to reduce the cost of production considerably. They basically plan to replace the current chips with smaller ones that are equally as powerful, but less expensive to produce. Microsoft is unlikely to acknowledge this secret plan any time soon, but I have reliable sources inside the company telling me that it is a working plan. The entire point behind the project is for them to try and stay a step ahead of the Sony PS3 in the future. Apparently, the Nintendo Wii isn’t a real concern for them.

For a moment there I thought this might be something that would improve the experience for existing 360 owners like a feature enhancing firmware update or a peripheral like the Sony eye or maybe an online community feature like Home, a truly original and unique game like ‘Littlebigplanet’ or at the very least free online gaming but of course I was wrong. Innovation and progress to MS simply means continually improving their flawed low spec console and trying to get existing owners to buy it again.

Before anyone mentions the new PS3 I’ll point out that an existing PS3 owner can just a buy new hard drive for $50 and have exactly the same spec as the new one.

Too bad you still can’t play music and video games at the same time on your super 1 core processor PS3. Yes, 1 core and 6 little wee SPE’s that are NOT true cores like you misinformed would love to believe. Eat .

why would you want to play music at the same time anyway? I like to hear the games.

Mike I thought all you Xbox fanboys cared about was ‘The Games’ and all the extra features the PS3 has are unimportant so why are you trying to use a feature non essential to gaming to attack the PS3? Secondly as part of Sonys commitment to making the PS3 better on an almost monthly basis you will soon be able to access the XMB during games. Its part of Home which is currently being Beta tested.
