After Falcon Comes Jasper

Dean Takahashi of the San Jose Mercury News posted a very interesting article. We all know the Falcon 360’s are hitting stores right now but what about life after the Falcon?. That’s where our buddy Dean here let’s loose some “Exclusive” information.

Dean speaks of a new type of Xbox 360 called the “Jasper” which should start hitting the market by next year’s holiday season. What type of hardware is included in the “Jasper”? Dean speaks of a 65-nanometer graphics chip from ATI as well as some smaller memory chips.

The “Jasper” will help Microsoft reduce costs on manufacturing and that’s a good thing. Dean posted in his article that he expects Microsoft “would be in position” to drop the price on the Xbox 360’s in 2008 just like they did when the “Falcon” systems started to trickle out.

Microsoft has not confirmed the “Jasper” but they did say that they’re always improving the hardware on Xbox 360 systems.

My Opinion on this? Hopefully the “Falcon” systems can stop the bleeding of all these dying 360’s. The “Falcon” needs to do it’s job and then pass the buck to the “Jasper” in 2008. Don’t you love being an Early Adopter?
