Hopefully sans Kinect (or at least, optional controller support). But I wouldn't count on it.

I want them to update their freesdk with next-gen features like Epic did but this won't happen methinks.

Definitely want see their engine on better HW. Not that we aren't seen the game already shine up really good on PC but at least if/when we see something, we may or may not know specs of the HW yet.
Even if new console hardware does not have the brute strength of modern PCs, I am interested to see what kind of optimizations and improvements can be made given the time with a closed system.

Everyone lost interest after we discovered it was a Kinect game, I've still got painful memories of that teaser video with the guy headbutting thin air.

That and the PC side benefiting from console devs working on better HW and putting our PC HW to better use. Some games are obvious console ports is what I mean.

Hmm, this makes me think the next Xbox will be here sooner. Probably 2013? I hope so.

Their SDK doesn't support DX11?
haha, no. Crysis 2 sdk supports it. Presumably these guys are yet to write decent DX11 implementation for AMD. also no scaleform, so you have to code your UI in C++ but they promised it will be there some day.

also they are rampling up their support by posting decent tutorials. Devs are active on forums. The sdk is too young anyway. Still I prefer it to UDK just because it's almost like Minecraft.

The current kinect features may not be enough for what they want Ryse to do. Waiting for Kinect 2.0

Why would they show the game at E3 if it's coming out on the next console?
Ryse has had a difficult production, it was being worked on by Crytek Budapest but last year the project moved to the main Crytek Frankfurt (Crysis) by Microsoft. Something went wrong there, tons of people from Budapest left for other companies. The delay could be attributed to the project being moved to the next gen console.

Xbox 360 was unveiled in May and released in November same year.

Considering the increase in rumors/news I believe the next xbox will be unveiled sometime in spring(latest at e3) and released in Oct-Nov 2012.

EDIT:
Also, it will be 7 years since x360 was released.

looks more like "xbox next gen" just means xbox 360, and this is just liberal use of "next gen"
occam's razor. i think ryse being moved to the nextbox launch, given that it's a new ip which do better on new platforms and that crytek are great for showing off new visuals, is far more likely than someone in the games industry not calling it the ubiquitous 360 but the "xbox next gen" in 2011. i haven't heard anyone refer to this gen as next gen in about two years.

Well, originally it was coming out in Fall 2011, then Microsoft had the project moved from Budapest to Frankfurt, so it might be in enough turmoil that it just got delayed at this point.
They showed it in June, she left in July. People fudge the truth on resumes but doesn't really seem to leave any time for her to have worked on new hardware and it wouldn't make any sense for them to show the game if it had already been moved.

the over use of "next gen" in this generation of consoles drives me crazy, people still call it next gen, and i want to smack them, hard

Maby she worked on it while it was still running on 360, but moved or knew it was going to be moved to new hardware. Looks good on your resume to say you "worked" on next gen hardware.

But yet we had final 360 specs in Feb 2004. Close to two years before it's release.

That's one of the things that doesn't jive here.

I think 2013 is possible, but not 2012.

Yep, obviously. No one refers to PS360 as next gen these days.

You don't think they'd want to keep things under wraps this time around? I don't think leaked/announced specs are a good indication of when the hardware will launch.
