"A new report suggests that Microsoft's next generation Xbox will come in two very different models.
The first is the console we're all expecting, providing true next-generation gaming experiences, while the other will be a more affordable unit aimed at the casual market. The latter is said to use Windows 8 as the basis of its operating system, and won't be able to run the latest triple-A titles, but will support downloadable casual games from Xbox Live.
For months I've been saying the Vita should have been designed to do this exact thing...........
Sony is going to be in a world of hurt if they come upon 2013, and have to develop high end games themselves for 3 independent platforms (PS3, Vita, and PS Orbis). I wonder if they could reverse engineer Vita games' compatibility with the next Playstation, but I doubt it. SCE is basically dividing and conquering itself.
