New Xbox Will NOT Attend E3
You’ve probably read or heard a hundred different rumors about the next gen Xbox by now. Most of the rumors talked about the new Xbox having no disc drive, and instead require hard memory or online certification for gaming to be enabled after you purchase a game.
Well, Microsoft has finally put the speculation to an end, for now. Microsoft stated, “ 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.”
Given that the Xbox 360 came out in 2005, it hasn’t even seen a full 10 years yet, and if you look at the history of gaming, it’s rather well-known that a consoles life span usually goes for a full decade. We are approaching that time frame, but Microsoft is going to keep pushing their sales with the 360, which isn’t hard to see given the consoles extreme success and popularity. You’ve got to consider that the newest addition to the family, the Kinect, has only been available for just less than a year and a half.
You can check out our report on the next Xbox, codenamed Durango. But as far as launch details, it looks as though we’ll be waiting a bit longer on the next big console update!
