The next gen console rumor is heating up with a variety of different rumors beginning to emerge. Yesterday we heard that the Nintendo Wii U looks set to support dual touchscreen controllers, and we heard talk that the Xbox 720 could be based on Windows 9 with Arm architecture. Today we have some more talk that the new Xbox is slated for release in 2012 and is called Ten, and the PS4 will be in tow.
An article over at Gamingbolt is reporting that Microsoft will be stealing Nintendo’s thunder by revealing the next Xbox at CES next year. The event will take place in January and because Microsoft normally releases products a while after first reveling them, the console is expected to be available for the holiday season next year.
Because Sony is spending big at the moment regarding R&D it is thought the PS4 won’t be that far behind either. The news has been leaked via the Windows Weekly show and the new Xbox has reportedly got the codename Ten, and is also to have embedded Silverlight and to have integration with Windows and Windows Phone just like iOS.
With yesterdays rumors though one of these must be wrong or at least slightly off track, and just like any speculation nothing can be proven until there is an official announcement. Many of you have told us you are not ready for the next generation PlayStation or Xbox to be released. The thought of paying out big sums of money now doesn’t appeal to many gamers.
Do you think we will see the next Xbox by the holiday season next year?
