Market analyst Michael Pachter has a lecture at the developer conference Develop talked about how he envisions the position of the Xbox 720 in the future of home.
Pachter is one of the games industry's most respected pundits, and has been right many times in their forecasts. He believes the console giants Sony and Microsoft is little in either direction for the next generation.
- I think Microsoft has realized it, and I think Sony is going to continue to integrate the separate components, since they have a strategy that covers all your electronic consumer products. Microsoft has a strategy to take over the world, says Pachter.
In recent years we have seen the consoles begin to push into other areas of the house, and the Xbox 360 is now used in the United States more to the film and music than to play. This is a trend we'll see more of the next generation, says Pachter.
- The consoles will have more features. Xbox 720, I think, is going to be your TV too. You will be able to view TV broadcasts through it. You will not need any Smart TV when you have an Xbox 720, it takes over the TV and the internet. It will use open architecture, he believes.
Microsoft nyannonserte technology, Smart Glass app, which lets you use the tablets and smart phones to both get access to extra information and control the Xbox, will also be used on Xbox 720, says market analyst.
- The highlight is that the Xbox will be able to send broadcasts to as many screens you want. You will be able to open up multiple channels in different windows, and then use the Smart Glass to send the different channels to as many screens as you want. This I am sure
Pachter also believes that Micosoft will enter into distribution agreements with cable companies, and will sell the Xbox 720 to a price about 99 dollars, which traditionally would mean a thousand-piece here in Norway, compared to that we make subscription with cable company.
This is in no way any confirmed information, but Pachter, who has his own game program with GTTV, Pach-Attack is a merited analyst on the playing field, and has often proven to be right in their prophecies. None of these proposals are preposterous, and agrees well with the direction Microsoft has taken the Xbox 360 in recent years. But we must admit that we may well hear a bit about the games too soon.
