Edge says that Ubisoft Montreal are using ‘target boxes’ created with the next Xbox’s specs in mind. A source tells Edge that delivery of the first genuine dev kits is expected to reach studios before Christmas. They also say that all signs point to the next Microsoft console arriving at retail in late 2012.
These boxes are PCs using off-the-shelf components, and it is believed that AMD has supplied the GPU chip. Edge says that other studios, including EA, may also have these boxes now.
One Sony studio is also moving on from PS3 development to the next PlayStation console. Edge says that the studio was involved in the development of this system’s graphics technology.
We’re finally moving on? Good. I wonder if Nintendo is concerned that their Wii U won’t be enough to hold up to the launch of the next Xbox or PlayStation.
