The Future of Xbox…

Many rumours have been swirling around the internet concerning the next generation of Xbox. It can be safe to assume that Microsoft has been working on it ever since the launch of the 360 although what they choose to do next is still up in the air. The most important of these rumours I must say is that it could be released in the holiday season of 2012. It seems to be quite a jolt that Nintendo has probably placed on the rest of the console developers. Microsoft and Sony are going to have to pick up their pace to make sure they aren’t left dazed in the dust by Nintendo and it’s Wii-U. Let’s hope we get some more information on the new generation consoles before E3 next year.

Another rumour going around is that developers are currently working on what are called “target boxes” which are simply PCs that mimic what the console will perform like so that they can get started with their development. According to Edge, a few select developers such as Ubisoft and EA have already gotten hold of these models and perhaps begun work on some of their future titles. Also rumoured is that the developer kit models will arrive prior to Christmas so that most developers can begin full fledged development right away.

This seems like good news for Xbox owners out there but the biggest question is, when will Microsoft be ready to spill the beans about the goodies brewing about in their lab?
