You have reached a place where you can read what is going on behind closed doors and know the future of the game development industry, mostly from Microsoft’s side of things. It’s always good to be more informed on that topic. Plus it’s great fun to read official media outlets after we have discussed the information here sometimes months or weeks before.

Please take note all information discussed is not set in stone and insider information can change due to the nature of the industry and the pace it’s moving, strategies can certainly change.

We don’t claim to know all about everything, but have a fragment of the information and sometimes more; we leave people to make their own conclusions, the insider’s notes/information will often ask you the people to dig, research and connect the dots.

All Insider info is under the "Insider Daily" header. All other analysis and topics are from blog contributors keen to reveal and enjoy the Microsoft / Xbox future.

There will be some typo mistakes as my 1st language is Russian. So I apologies in advance for any confusion caused by my words, I hope that with the daily grind and fast pace of this blog / journal my English will and has improved. 
You can follow me on twitter from the link below.
How to Evaluate our Blog / Journal

We don't know real dates of when Microsoft will talk about the tech they are working on. So yes, the dates are not always precise as Microsoft’s plans can change or something new or unusual happens like an NDA extension for example.

We don't know Microsoft market strategy, The Insider is a tech guy and always believes Microsoft will show that side to public as soon as developers sample technology to other developers.

The insider will often state in his notes and messages, that the information he has supplied will not be 100% confirmed by him/herself or the source he gain the knowledge from, please read carefully through the notes provided.

From what we have discussed, we have come to the conclusion that the XBOX ONE console, was a console that was originally meant to be released at a much later date and time of 2014-15 and we also believe the system is 2-3x more powerful then Sony’s PS4 console from the research we have made from contributors to this blog / journal.

As stated before using the information we provided, we made the connections between the dots that Microsoft reveal (no it is not PR only) and what developers state in there interviews with media outlets or media sites, NDA’s will expire which will reveal more tech and information, this tends to bring our insider notes/messages in line with these new reports from developers within the gaming industry.

Please be aware of lies of Sony propaganda, they over promise and under deliver, A 1.8TF console (PS4) is still 1.8TF console while top GPUs are 5-6TFs. They often show CGI first and then downgrade later on in development.

Also their other tricks are specific game designed only for PlayStation exclusives which use:

- Narrow corridor games with low draw distance (Uncharted, God of War, and Last of Us), that all need less power for the system to render.
- Open-world games with low draw distance (Infamous).
- Games with static cameras (Beyond, Heavy Rain).
- Less objects and details on screen to render (GT5).

All those tricks need 30-40% less power to render. Compare to Xbox 360 games that look much better. Compare for example Uncharted which consists 95% of corridor levels and some of Halo 4 corridor levels with Night and Day.

Other tricks:

- Tech demos that combines all the tricks.  Tech demos will never filter to real games with such visuals in real time on PS hardware.
- Cut scenes with better assets as real-time game play (Uncharted).

New trick used this generation:

- Make image quality lower but be sure to hit 1080p
- Say it is 60fps even if it is hit only 30% of time
- Make a deal with publisher your version will be better (Witcher 3 dev confirmed there is those types of agreements in the industry, insider informed us of this 3 years ago)

3rd party or MS 1st party developers don't use those tricks as there is no need to lie to gamers and show "superiority" of the hardware. Even with the launch of Xbox One and PS4, when Microsoft’s DX12 API is not ready and resolution is slightly better on PS4 and still Sony again invents new tricks to deceive and lie to its own gaming community and media outlets.

So if we see "actual game play" logo in trailer from Microsoft - it is.
If we don't see "actual game play" logo from Sony - it could be fake/downgraded or pre-rendered cut scene.

Thank you for taking the time to read my welcome page, I hope you enjoy what we talk about here and remember.........

Play fair and Game hard.

Game On!

misterxmedia

Insider:
1. Patents

http://appft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PG01&s1=20120159090.PGNR.&OS=DN/20120159090&RS=DN/201201590

 Read it

 2. The xbox case
2.1 Also the image is a mock up of the final sdk pics
2.2 The real Xbox is not so bulky looking
2.3 Its a nice looking design a
nd its going to be made of Metal :)
2.4 The cost is going in to next GEN hardware
2.5 We will Not be seeing a wii u type scenario

2.6. The Xbox will be upgradeable in the future also
2.7 It has Backwards comparability with all 360 games with native upscale and enhanced feature sets
2.7 The spec's could change mainly in gpu as actual consoles wont be going out to the plant till mid to late / 2013

3. Sony's BC
3.1 Also the sony console will differently not have BC on ps3 games 
3.2 They will have to re-developed or streamed which also has many bottleneck in its self
3.3 Cost and bandwidth, and anybody who can not factor this in Sony do not have the Money reserves to wast on old gen games and this is not about the old back catalog
3.4 Sony is sort of starting over in regards to the PlayStation console brand
3.5 Gone is the Japanese hardware factor | no Father Ken | This is the first time that The western 100% influence
3.6 They  have also taken over The design and the development tools |It is a fresh approach | Which I can see it being good for the Brand and its loyal followers | But there is chatter about the number 4 in Jap
3.7 I wont go into it here but I am sure people know about it

6. Now I need to get something across in regards to wii u
6.1 Wii U memory system

6.2 I have heard that Nintendo has been getting a lot of Negative comments across the web
6.3 Lets me clear this up | The GPGPU and cpu Both have access to 32mb of edram
6.4 The edram memory bandwidth is close to 600GBs | The 2gb of system ram is ddr1600 that is slow to pc standard and even ps3/360 | The 2gig bandwidth is around 12/14 Gb/s  its really 4x 512mb chips

6.5 But you have to look at the way the MCM is setup | The gpgpu and cpu use mem 1, which is 32mb edram 600gbss | Then system mem 2 1 gig 12/14gbs |
6.6 The problem is that with 3rd party ports there not using the mem1 to handle all memory streaming | There using the system's slower ddr1600 and only 10mb of the edram for buffers | 

6.7 There basically emulating the 360 engines which are not set up to take advantage of wii-u hardware | That is why we are not seeing the jump that the console has over 360/ps3 

6.8 Wii U GPU
6.9 Also what is the gpgpu based around | qell its really a 5770/6770 but it has been modified with 8000 tech it is a Frankenstein | it has a max draw of 50watts of the 75watts that the full system can handle.
6.10 The wii u is really 4x more powerful then ps3/360 | when the gpgpu and edram are used |  
6.11 also the cpu is not a power7 it is based around this 3x core with 3x logic cores per core | 
I have been told there is 4 logic cores but due to power draw they are not active | 
6.12 Software locked by the sdk could they be unlocked I don't know | The cpu is clocked @ 2.8ghz per core  

6.13 So wii-u is a next gen system | people have to look at what Nintendo did with zelda on wii   what will they do with this system  as Nintendo ant fools | but we wont see 2k native games :) | Well maybe we will but those games wont be very demanding  

6.14 But don't ever expect  xbox quality on wii -u at 1080p but @ 720p unscaled with lower  textures and  effects its going to happen :)


Insider Daily. Rare's Conker and KI3 next gen. KI 1/2 HD on Live soon

Misterxmedia: Did you see that?
WOW

Insider: Yes .. modern age of remixing music .. I love it.. and the principles and view of Bruce lee are legendary beyond belief. 
Are you guys getting ready for KI3 next gen and Killer Instinct   1/2 HD and re-textured on live soon :) 
Word is Conker is coming back in a true sequel... But that is behind closed :) 


More Bruce Lee
1. How can that be possible?


From 1:45 - just unbelievable.

Insider Daily. Kinect 2.0 + glasses + wall projection & possible 2014 delay

Misterx: 1. How much more power Xbox next now compared to Sony?
2. So MS they changed their plans and wasted 1 billion dollar on canned architecture?
3. What about weather effects in Forza Horizon?


Insider:
Hi ... I have not seen forza horizon for 12 months .. But to my knowledge the forza I saw in early build with weather was not Horizon so I cant be 100% sure..

I cant link to sight at this time but remember the stuff I talked about

http://www.computerandvideogames.com/367553/ground-breaking-xbox-720-tech-could-turn-rooms-into-3d-environments/

This is going to happen.. and it will mean that games like gears of war + halo+ cod+ forza+ will support this.. Its amazing stuff.. I was not going to talk about this but its cool to use the early beta 3d augmented glasses.. its 100% eye max but the graphics actually look holographic and yes you can sit down and use a core xbox controller :)    Forza test was absolutely phenomenon I cant even tell you what it is like to see a Ferrari in the room that is not there in full holographic 3d augmented and move around it the detail is about 50% better then forza 4 still more time to go, and you can look right down on your nee's.. I shouldn't be saying this stuff as its top secrete..  But this really is a massive giant leap in visuals but there not inside the box.. There is no projector on the walls like people are thinking.. there is  a 2nd device that works in tandem with kinect 2.. it sends scale and mapping information of objects around the room .. The glasses then map the holographic textures on to objects walls characters.. I cant see it shipping to 2015 tho but its defiantly the way forward.. The games can run on the tv as well but its hard to go back to such a small squire world..

screenshot_290189_thumb_wide620

From 4:50


Yes you can use the tech specs just remember im still not 100% putting my word to it tho.. as We don't have these specs in our hands and rnd do change things up... But we have been assured its happening. will know by the end of October.

We have not worked out how much faster or better these new specs are. But id say around 14x maybe 16x... its the jump from wii to xbox 360 tho that is for sure in graphics but its the other hardware aspects that are even more amazing. But you will see trust me you will all see... As for ps4 final target specs have changed.. Iv heard that it is about 70% of 720 specs.  Sony are trying to push the 4k tv's aspects  that the ps4 can do 4k.. but Its more like 2k upscale.. Both console will be able to do 2k @ 60fps with a fear amount off aa which at that res is not so noticeable as at 720p.. I think sony are going to have to get it right next gen no mistakes get out first and show the leap ps4 has over wii u .. That is the trick Sony can do this with easy.. But I think its going to be wiiu = dreamcast  ps4=ps2  xbox720=xbox   But sony doesn't have the perfect run that they had back with ps2 .. were ms has the creed of a ps2 style gen.  But any thing can change...  or repeat :)

Insider: Or yeah Ms didn't wast 1 billion on architecture... That is called surface and there other formats.. its all absorbed :)

Misterx: MS have to delay or not have to delay...it sounded like a typo in previous mail and the right meaning is "have to delay"..
Insider:
Ok the fabs are working around the clock to get a wafers that are at 20nm.. its very very hard but it can be done.. Ms have hired 3 fabs to cut and run :) NO !! basically the console could be delayed Ms wanted to ship it out around September 2013.. But I anomalously think 2014 its the main GPU that is the problem.. the only way to get this part in to a console so power and heat are not a factor is 20nm. Even tho I think this hardware will run hotter then xbox/s I would say around 10+ degrees but it will be designed to move heat around so that no RROD happen or hardware fails.  When I asked what cooling would this need the rnd said straight up leave that to us..  I now that enhanced new sdk official console spec will be shipping around November which will be test wafer cuts.  But if they don't get the wafers sorted and miss Novembers target then they could run an extra 8 to 10 weeks.  The first party kits with this new hardware are available for Request for 1st party developer to get but its a very limited number so only the best have them and even then only the best developers in the house can touch the tech.. no body is aloud near it.  I know ea only got 720 about 1 month ago.. its only a mock up console but close to final target. we have it but not like EA :(  And there not dieing its the ps4 that has the problems.. but that will be sorted. The problem is there pushing so much tech in to box's not much bigger then what we have now..  But its needed  and they will both deliver.. :)    So I think xbox720 = 2014 but early around march

Misterx: That is sad about possible delay...that will cost them...

from 4:50 - MS Research demo wall projectors at home of the future...so this patent just an idea..another form many MS Research generates...

real implementation should go by glasses as you mentioned


Insider Daily: previous post detailed
misterxmedia
Insider: ....I would like to answer to all your questions.....but....there is no 100% real answer and a very harsh level of control.

.,..dev kit is not official hardware....that is a mock target...MS not shipped this...they ship only software...100% Durango alpha api...in order to win api war...MS invested big dollars in api tools...because many people don't understand how to code on a low hardware level...so they do a job for them.......PS3 have bottlenecs - ram and gpu...PS3 has alien coding style most developers just don't get. Xbox has evolved with PC and every new development in SDK brings evolve in graphics...Skyrim is an example...PS3 gets massive strain in development times...Uncharted and Last of us puch ps3 to the limit..Xbox has the abilities to shash the competition, overdue this...but it all comes to time and money...do MS needs xbox look good later in this game compared to next gen or not...thing have changed...and this could also be changed...ive seen different next gen specs 5 time already....Ms have really gone and taken as much hardware from every known cpu/gpu tv company and 4k screens to test what could be built and sold at a price that is not ingrate for the consumer or going to fail from every day on demand connect use.

Nintendo has updated there wii u spec's a lot more then what Sony and Ms had first believed.. when the word back at e3 got around that big n had dropped the 5000 series for a 7000 series gpu both sony and ms were forced to with hold unveiling there next gen console as they both had 6000+ cores with better hybrid tech based 2nd gpus in there system.  yes both had decide to not show....

....Now the shocking thing out off all this is Ms and sony have both gone back to change things.. Sony has changed there specs in there console, While Ms have decide to change 70% of the gpu/cpu specs.. And now the so called "bad news" ms will most likely not have to delay the 720 past September 2013.. I know there is a 8 weeks trial and there is all the top engineers working day and night to get the wafers tuned to a usable specs in the fab facility. now the new chip is an absolute monster....


20nm wafer yields will only be for the main gpu.. the cpu/apu will be biased heavily on Richland specs.  so yes x86 cpu cores now officially  8 core 4 threads per core ... The original 360 soc compatibility chip has been dropped as the 8000+ will be extremely powerful... so forward compatibility via emulation is going to look amazing. and the extra costs have been put towards the upgrade.  But on the down side ram maybe downgraded from 8gig to 6 gig. As sony are now only shipping with 4gig and wii-u 2gig but even this could change..  This is info circulating around...and we can not be 100% sure...It is extremely powerful for a console.....And I think it would have to be clocked very low in clocks due to heat issues and power consumption. But the big question is do I believe it "YES" it makes sense to do this.....

Misterx: 1. how much more power full xbox next now compared to sony?

2. So MS they changed their plans and wasted 1 billion dollar on canned architecture?



Insider Daily: Nintendo forced MS and Sony to change their specs
misterxmedia
Insider: ......

.....

.....

Don't put it on your blog please, but you can use main things:

8000+ gnc 2.0 "Venus XTX" based gpu 20mn
8 core Richland x86 cpu With 8000 core series hd apu 28nm
8 or 6 gig of ram
Reports are 4.00+ TFLOP of graphics processing power.
Misterx: ok, by my own words:

- Next xbox x86 officially
- Next xbox will be 4T+ in power. 5T reports are true.
- Next xbox will have 8 to 6 gigs of ram. Sony now target 4gb.
- Sony and MS had phone calls not to put next gen at E3 in order to delay it and make Nin look absolete. after Nintendo  changed their 5000 specs to 7000 series specs.
- MS changed 70% of their gpu/cpu design recently after that.
- MS should not delay xbox next
- Next xbox will be a moster for a console. the price should be around $450 but that is not a fact for now.

Insider Daily: DirectX 11 + New Facial Animation Tech API
misterxmedia

Misterx: I remember 1 or 2 years ago you said "wait till you see MSs new facial animation tech". I guess now I see this in Halo 4, Forza Horizon and even in MGS SG. I guess MS made this new tech on API level. Kodjima benefits now form DX11 and MS. We all benefit now. Can't wait for Alan Wake 2. Now all games on MS platform can have good facial animation and expressions. Wonder how much worse Fox Engine will run on PS3. Will it run on Xbox 360 using all its power(tessellation, GPGPU, EDRAM, virtual texturing)?

Wonder how many old PS3 dev started DX11 development for multiplatform. Will PS4 be ever shipped? I remember a rumor about one of big 3 console makers can not to ship next console because it will make them even more red next gen. Seems like it is Sony as their developers started DX11 projects for "PS4" and they started a trend to close projects and loose developers. How can they conquer MSs one multimedia box vision, resources and technology they are cooking.

Did MS created new facial animation API for their developers? 





Also I start new section and will comment some gamers question gathered from around the web:

Question 1: Neogaf.com->Halo 4 tread
"I don't understand how 343 basically achieved an almost generational type leap in the visuals within a generation.
Those cutscenes look fucking amazing."

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=41668400&postcount=203

Answer 1: That is because MS waited with some APIs for a latter phase of xbox live cycle. PS3 maxed out early in order to save their sales. MS gave updated tools to their devs later. Those updated tools were APIs witch use all xbox capabilities(like GPGPU, tessellation, virtual texturing and EDRAM) fully optimized. Some xbox developers called them x-engine.

Don't blame Bungie. That is just bad timing for them. They started Reach much earlier than X-engine was ready. They use only 50% of its capabilities. As insider said Halo Reach only used about 50% of xbox power. Halo 4 will also left some juice left for 2013 to surprise.

This is a lady responsible for DirectX and X-engine at Microsoft. Corrine Yu
The best women programmer in the world. Together with J Allard(design father of xbox) they designed a tech beast with a 8+ years vision in mind.  X-engine is her baby I guess.



Summer Insider: It is a time to move on to a...subscrition based services
misterxmedia
Insider: There is so much hardware testing going on right now... Its been locked down the last month because a user decide to try and sell an early dev kit "PC SPEC ONLY". Ms has been scanning every email all new NDA's are in place for nay first party and some 3rd party developers.  The subscription model is a fantastic idea.. Its what google/asus did with the Nexus 7 tablet..  Subside the cost of hardware via software sales. Very angry with the greedy Company's that want to keep software and hardware developing so they can sell old software models to the public.. which will go the way of the dinosaur if they don't learn to adapt...  So if you purchase a console for 199$ and subscribe for 2 years @ 15$ a month you get live for free... the new model of  live will have a 10% increase every month.. But before people start screaming there heads off in rage.. The new model will have games for free every month so 4 games a month and 8 movies is add to the value. Its a better deal then both sony and big n are trying to do.  As for hardware the 720 durango specs are 12/18x xbox360 that is the figure they are aiming for.. Really 10x would be  enough and then live could stream better grahics to hardware like could based gaming by 2015/16.. you wouldn't need a new console.


Summer Insider: Will Epic get what they want? xbox720 = 18x360 power? But will that from the start?
misterxmedia

Misterxmedia: Here is a question from out readers :)

"so there wll be windows 8 surface
but also there will be xbox branded surface to be used with xbox next

so if they choose amd 64, ther will be still 8 core with 2 of them  16 core
or what ?
and what about thread , with 16 core x 4 thread there will be 64 thread
what about with amd 64, still have 64 thread in xbox next
reduce in performance or still targetting the same as ppc"
Инсайдер:
soon :)

3 days later

Insider http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2012/07/will-there-be-multiple-versions-of-the-next-xbox/     This is the console that is going forward.. Epic's design spec.. 18X xbox360

Misterxmedia: So, what will be use case scenarios for end user? Pay 200usd every 2 years in order to take latest version of hardware? And Xbox live will be free inside thouse 2 years contracts?


Insider Daily.Xbox Tablet or Xbox Next?2010 powerpoint is outdated-Next xbox is 12++++ power of 360
misterxmedia
Misterxmedia: Will 1 gpu match hd8970 perfomance or what will do 2 gpus combined?
Инсайдер:
cpu/apu + gpu will reach hd8970 performance levels.. There will be over heads at the start but compared to the wiiu over heads its about 20%.... I ant 100% sure what's going on Monday with Ms our high up dev is all smiles and is chatting more then lately. I would be think next gen hardware announcement really it could happen there was so much stuff on show back stage at E3 they could easily lunch a  console within 6 month like I have been saying for the last 12 months. There are so many 3rd party dev's with 100% support for pet name 720 :) every studio developer have code names for the durango hardware's. And yes unreal engine 4 runs on it and with ease. 

Nice vista also.. a bit gray sort of like unreal engine 3 :)
Misterxmedia: so system with 2cpu and 2gpu will be hd8970 level? Or will be 2xhd8970 level? I think me will annoUnce tablet...but bad NPD this month...so maybe and even next xbox. Also I don't get how it is possible to change from PPC CPU to amd 64 that late and even without spec change as you said... What about Sony..will they ship ps4?:)

Инсайдер:
The final changes of core cpu.. will not effect the sdk.. as x64 is already in Assembly.....  

Iv heard the reason they may change is because they want a better level of security,  Arm cortex  is better for a hyper vizor  based security. And the Amd apu can have an on chip arm with out using cpu cores.  1080p @ 12o fps  but 4k via upscale chip when the tvs are available. No console will do 4k native render next gen. It could be possible for 2k render but you would lose 40% of peak performance, games would still look better then ps3/360 buy a long shot.

And yes I have been told, It could be the new tab getting announced Monday, or Ms have purchased a large segment of apple :)

I think next gen..

Misterxmedia: How old is that presentation? Looks messed and outdated.

I don't get about priceing - 299$ for xTV version or it will be main xbox and there will not be more powerfull version?
Инсайдер:
Old Document... Way way more powerfull .. That was an internal guide. But board lay out is 100% real. but the 3x xenos is not in the unit that I have seen that was cut Bc will be done by main cpu. It was cut to save costs, and these cost have allowed MS to add more cores to system and better main gpu specs and faster apu and more dd4 to 8gig.. it will all so be possible to add more to this console because it will have pci3 specs.. as not every body in 2017 will have fast internet so retail games will still be sold.  I would expect more information to arrive over the next few hours. There is an updated Documents out there on the internet a lot of developer were given them with the new specs and lunch window @ e3.  The system is A monster, @ e3 there we developers talking about peck performance will be higher then first thought.. I heard some insane number way above 12X I ant going to repeat it as I don't want to theory of what is and isn't and be quoted for it. They have 450w head room on this console. Its expectations have exceeded everybody that has seen it and have sdk's
