According to Bloomberg News, plans MAY be in place to reveal the next-generation Xbox console by holiday season 2013.
This has not been confirmed and is still a floating rumor, but Bloomberg has reached out to Microsoft for a comment to confirm this.
Their sources, however, remain confidential, but said they are familiar with Microsoft’s sales plans.
The Xbox 360 made its debut back in 2005, and since then, the gaming market has continued to change drastically – and so has the Xbox 360. Borrowing characteristics from its competitors, Microsoft’s move towards making the 360 the central entertainment hub in a person’s home has been a gradual but steady shift.
Now with the recent release of the Xbox SmartGlass on Oct. 26, and the continual growth of the Kinect experience, we don’t know how Microsoft expects to expand its technology for the next generation console, but we’ll be waiting patiently to find out.
In the last week since Black Friday, GameTrailers reports over 750,000 Xbox 360 consoles have been sold.
