The lights are on
Microsoft said today there are no plans to unveil its next Xbox at E3 this June.
Ryan James, Group PR Manager for Microsoft Studios, said in a statement sent to Game Informer, "While we appreciate all the interest in our long-range plans for the future, we can confirm that there will be no talk of new Xbox hardware at E3 or anytime soon.
"For us, 2012 is all about Xbox 360—and it’s the best year ever for Xbox 360. The console is coming off its biggest year ever—a year in which Xbox outsold all other consoles worldwide."
Sony president Kaz Hirai said in early January the company has no plans to unveil its next console hardware at E3, either.
Good; I'm not ready to pay for a new console when this gen has so much life left in it.
Does anyone have any solid, reliable information on any of the new consoles besides the Wii U?
After looking at the PS3 demo of Kara, I believe there are still more time for this current generation, at least for the PS3.
That's a relief. Nintendo just caught back up, there's no reason to leave them in the dust again yet.
Weirdly, I'm kinda happy. I really don't want to shell out another $300+.
Good... I've said it before and I'll say it again, microsoft will re-earn my hardware dollars if/when they can make windows work the way it should! Until pc crashes are a thing of the past I'll be a sony devotee.
Well that's good news
2011 was Xbox's biggest year ever? Sure, 2011 was the biggest year in terms of units sold, but exclusives-wise? It was one of the worst lineups I've seen in years; not since the extremely low amount of quality Wii games in 2008.
Good! It's not time yet IMO
Haha, does everyone think they will announce an announcement for a new console? The way i look at it, it might be far enough into production to have a "code-name" already.
I don't really mind. My Xbox is fine as it is.
Good, like Kato I don't think it's time for new consoles.
Glad to hear it
We want to see the next version of the xbox Microsoft. But if it is not ready when will it be? This is not good news at all.
