Microsoft’s new XBox to be out for Christmas 2013
It seems that with no major new games console out since 2006, things are beginning to move forward.
The WiiU has been the most recent new games console. I still have to try out the new controller, but it does look good.
Now word is that the next version of Microsoft’s Xbox video-game machine is scheduled to be available for the holiday season in 2013.
The new device is planned for Thanksgiving and Christmas sales, said a source for Bloomsberg.
Sony are also planning to release an updated PlayStation at somepoint.
The current Xbox 360 is still proving popular, selling 750,000 over the week around Thanksgiving.
The new console is expected to simply be called Xbox and is expected to have “four hardware cores, each divided into four logical cores” and 8GB of RAM.
The next Xbox will also support Blu-Ray discs, according to Gizmodo, feature directional audio, TV output and input, have an “innovative controller” and introduce Kinect 2.0. Supposedly, AR glasses like Google Glasses will be released in later stages of the next Xbox.
