The next Xbox will be revealed in April, "developers and other industry professionals" tell gaming site CVG. Hopefully the hardware will literally be revealed - Sony failed to do this at its PS4 event, or provide pricing info. Past rumors mention an 8-core CPU and 800 MHz. GPU from AMD, a Blu-ray player, a next-gen Kinect with lower latency and an improved color stream, and (most intriguingly) a cheap Xbox set-top focused on casual gaming and media use. Microsoft (MSFT) had been expected to show off the next Xbox at June's E3 convention.

    The smartphone/tablet battlefield is past the halfway point of being played out. My bet is that by 2015, the PC/Tablet/Smartphone market shifts will stabilize. (No more "Death of the PC" and "Cannibalization" articles, whohoo!)

     

    Its the TV (home entertainment) battlefield that is the next war. MSFT has a chance to get further ahead of the entire market with this release. Xbox 360 is a fine home entertainment device, but it has a long way to go...especially with AAPL, GOOG, INTC, etc. in or entering the market.

     

    The landscape of the early TV/home entertainment device war will be defined on this reveal, of the Xbox 720. Boom or bust? Depends on what MSFT has up their sleeve.
