MS Nerd strikes again, and this time we have a lot more “leaked” information for you. According to his/her blog post, it is rumoured that Microsoft’s next gaming console will support Windows 9 and will be DD only. Digital Distribution only? Seems unlikely if they want market penetration but hey, we are just here to provide the information to you.
This is what was written in the blog post:
“The Xbox is another story altogether. With a heady mix of rumors, tips and speculation, I am now stating that Xbox codename “loop” (the erstwhile XboxTV) will indeed debut a modified Win9 core. It will use a Zune HD-like hardware platform—a “main” processor with multiple dedicated assistive cores for graphics, AI, physics, sound, networking, encryption and sensors.
“It will be custom designed by Microsoft and two partners based on the ARM architecture. It will be cheaper than the 360, further enabling Kinect adoption. And it will be far smaller than the 360. It will also demonstrate how Windows Phone could possible implement Win9’s dev platform on the lower end.”
