The lights are on
According to unnamed sources speaking to Bloomberg, Microsoft is set to launch its successor to the Xbox 360 in time for the holidays next year. The report states Microsoft is still undecided about whether or not the company will unveil the console at E3 or a separate, dedicated event.
Microsoft has declined to comment on the report.
Previous rumors suggested the codename of the console is "Durango" and will likely ship with the next-generation Kinect camera. Other rumors say the console may tie your game purchases to your Xbox Live account, effectively locking out used games.
I actually gasped when I read this, super happy about this news
both systems are going head to head next winter. I feel sorry for those who want both systems. E3 2013 will be good.
I can't wait. I have a lot going on next year such as my high school graduation, Marine Corps' Basic Training, finding a nice condo, and much more. So a new Xbox will be a relief for me.
I feel sketchy about the next Xbox. I feel like they'll focus too much on the Kinect, considering they've been devoting so much of their time to it this gen so far.
That's pretty much what I figured.
Locking out used games entirely is a completely idiotic idea in my book.
Wonder if that next gen Kinect (if it exists) will have better software than the original. I loved the idea, but the execution was really lacking in my book.
I think both Microsoft and Sony will announce their consoles outside of E3. Or at least one of them will. It'd really be overwhelming for both to share the spotlight on the same week and garner an optimal amount of media attention.
not looking forward to it sadly ... but who knows i guess we'll see
