The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Alleged Xbox 720 Chip Manufacturing Issues Could Delay Console Launch

Posted on Thursday, September 6 @ 08:34:40 PST by Alex_Osborn


We still have no official word from Microsoft on when we can expect the next Xboxor whether it even exists for that matterbut current buzz on the net indicates that their next-gen console will launch late next year or early 2014. However, thanks to a new report from SemiAccurate, we may end up waiting even longer.

According to the outlet, rumor has it that the Xbox 720's processor (allegedly being manufactured by AMD) has run into a few production problems. Apparently the chipcodenamed "Oban"is currently being mass produced in the Far East, but the final product is less than stellar, with the bulk of the chips clearly unable to pass quality testing.

The source goes on to add that if this continues to prove to be a major issue for Microsoft over the coming months and they don't have a solid working product by year's end, we likely won't see the new Xbox until 2014.

To stay informed on all things next-gen, keep it locked to GameRevolution.
