gamesindustry.biz reports that the next Xbox is coming in October. Supposedly this is a well-known secret in the gaming industry.
While internet news sources today have reported that Microsoft is readying to launch its next generation Xbox hardware in America and Europe in the fourth quarter of this year, Eurogamer has learnt that the specific timing for the machine’s roll-out is late October or early November, and merely weeks after the US launch. The exact date is yet to be solidified.
Xbox 2 is the name of the console, as many expected. Some competitors are criticizing Microsoft for coming out with the new box too early, forcing the next generation of consoles before the market is ready. E3 is expected to see the big reveal.
Am I the only person that thinks Microsoft should treat the Xbox like it were a PC, with new hardware every single year, making the game platform more powerful and robust, and allowing backward compatibility while improving quality every 12 months? Is it too crazy of an idea?
