Speculation has been flying since Nintendo announced the WiiU last year about the possibility of Sony and Microsoft announcing their next-gen consoles at E3 in 2012. Nobody actually knows anything, but that doesn’t stop the dedicated “investigative journalists” at GameSpot from digging up some dirt. Yesterday they posted an article concerning the next Xbox that truly shows journalistic excellence.They reported that:
“Multiple sources reportedly close to the Microsoft next-generation team tell Kotaku that the system is currently in development as Durango. Durango is the name of a city in Colorado, as well as a state in Mexico.” ~ GameSpot
Remarkable! The next Xbox could potentially be code named Durango, which also happens to be a city in Colorado and a state in Mexico. Being a bit of a sleuth myself, I wasn’t simply content to leave it at that. I did a bit of digging on my own, and found a list of other things called Durango. There is the:
The Durango Racing Team
Durango, a city in the Biscay province in Spain
Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad
The Durango Kid
The Durango-class offshore stealth patrol vessel
The Durango Pine
And the evil and notorious Durango Chipmunk…
From my investigation, I think that it is fairly easy to see what Microsoft has going on here. Obviously this so-called Xbox Durango will not only include Kinect functionality built-in, but will also include 4X4 capabilities, will be bound in leather, and with utilize stealth technology. It will be waterproof, designed with chipmunk architecture, and will be made of parts produced in Mexico, assembled in Colorado, and banned in Arizona. The picture has become crystal clear.
Of course, to quote Isaac Newton: “If I have seen farther it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” I would have never been able to make these observations and predictions if it had not been for the remarkable journalistic excellence from the GameSpot team. They deserve the real accolades.
This has been an opinion piece,
And everyone is entitled to my opinion.
