some photos of the next-gen Xbox “720” have come to light online, the images were found on AssemblerGamers forums from a user known as DaE which tried the development kit for $10,000 in which a lot of people assumed the photos and development kit to be fake

the development kit has many parts in common with gaming pc’s and the two applications seen on screen are to help develop camera views and data from kinect, including Durango shown on screen which has been rumoured for a while to be codename for the next-gen console from Microsoft!

according to DaE the development kits were sent out in February with Intel CPU’s, NVIDA Graphics Card and 8GB of Ram although other sources say 12GB and 64 bit OS. although these specs haven’t been confirmed but sources have told IGN that the next-gen Xbox will be six times more powerful than the current-gen. plus some more specs that are going to be included in the next-gen console are AMD 6000 series CPU and support DirectX11

It’l come to no surprise that Gran Turismo 6 is in the making. Kazunori Yamauchi, the genius for Gran Turismo’s has stated that shortly after GT5 the team was straight into crafting the next game. With Kazunori’s fine eye for detail and not easily rushed this will no doubt be a ‘Next Gen Console’ game, and could be seen early as 2014.

Apple To Create A Controller For Gaming?

Theres a rumour circulating that Apple are going to be releasing a Controller so that ios games can be controlled. In Fact they have even patented it. Amongst speculation, it is said that with Apple having released a TV settop box that already allows you to stream games from other ios devices this controller could help you to navigate and play games which would make the settop box both a TV and a game station.

But..further into the rumour Apple has apparently stated that they havent patented a controller per say, but patented a design that would allow for existing controllers to link up and be used as a controller for the ios devices and games..Now when does Apple ever aloud third party devices to operate with there software/devices? i could be wrong but i cant think of any. Also Apple has never denied or accepted rumours whenever they have released a new product/software or even new shop for that matter there a very secretive business – Case (for now) closed.

This is the second post to do with Conceptual Art..

Recently read somewhere about a movie coming out soon well a documentary about some bloke that designs movie posters, and i thought at first ‘so what’ but then i took interest when i saw he’d done work for George Lucas/ Steven Spielberg etc..

Drew Struzan is the said bloke. He has designed for.. oh just nearly every big film that was huge in the 80s/90s

E.g Indiana Jones, Starwars, Back to the Futures, Blade runner and the list goes on and on.. Drew is one of the best if not the best poster designer ever and is well respected in the industry. Everything he has designed is by hand and eye not technology.

In case you want to check out the trailer to the documentary click Here
