New Rumors of a Refreshed Xbox from Microsoft

Lately there have been several rumors going around the Internet that Sony will be releasing a PlayStation 4.5. Well it appears Microsoft is not content with being left behind as a new rumor predicts the coming of the Xbox φ (Xbox phi). For those who do not know, φ is the Golden Ratio, a value with some interesting characteristics. For example φ2=φ+1 and φ-1 equals the square root of φ. It can also be found in various works of architecture, as the ratio seems to be pleasing to the eye, which is appropriate as the refreshed Xbox will provide better visuals.

If we do a little math, because φ is approximately equal to 1.618, the Xbox φ is a 0.618 improvement over the Xbox One, which is more than the 0.5 improvement the PS4.5 represents over the PS4. There is no word yet on if Nintendo might try to transcend both companies by releasing an NX e (≈2.718), or skip directly to an NX π (≈3.142).

No it's true!

 

I've even heard that there's going to be a Raspberry Square Root Of -1 but it could just be in someones imagination?  :blink:
