Report: Microsoft’s next-gen Xbox already in production stage

Posted By | On 04th, May. 2012 Under News | Follow This Author @KartikMdgl


According to a report it is confirmed that Microsoft’s next-gen system is indeed under development at Flextronics in Austin, Texas. Flextronics manufactures the current Xbox 360 and other devices for Microsoft.

It has to be noted that Microsoft will not show off a new system at E3, so we have to go with all these rumours to gain some knowledge of what’s happening currently.

“Xbox 360 has found new ways to extend its lifecycle like introducing the world to controller-free experiences with Kinect and re-inventing the console with a new dashboard and new entertainment content partnerships,” said Microsoft in a statement to IGN.

“We are always thinking about what is next for our platform and how to continue to defy the lifecycle convention. Beyond that we do not comment on rumours or speculation.”

Flextronics, meanwhile, declined to comment as they obviously are under NDA. So even a generic comment is a no-no.

    it will probably have a blu-ray player on it, now that the lower cost of the BD drive won’t cause the system to cost $699 on release, like the PS3 was. Just because Sony had a hand in the R&D of the blu-ray, doesn’t mean it will never be on a microsoft product. If that was the case, Then why is the DVD, which sony also aided in with the R&D, on the current generation of microsoft, and nintendo consoles? And your fre to play online is a moot point when it comes to the xbox and xbox live, as you get more frequent, and much faster updates on the xbox over the PS3, so paying for the service the small 5 dollars a month (even less when you can find the live cards on sale) helps to make the xbox live system faster and more reliable, not to mention much less prone to being hacked and having millions of peoples personal financial information available to the highest bidder, and the PSN being down for months due to the hack. what you pay for on the xbox is kind of like peace of mind, knowing your information is safer, and your online experience is more stable.
