Although Microsoft have officially kept quiet about the 360’s successor, today the first mention of a new Xbox has been uttered. This won’t come as a massive surprise to anyone who’s at least kept one eye on gaming news and rumours, but it’s the first nod in an official capacity.
“We’ve had Hotmail and operated Hotmail for about sixteen years,” said Brian Hall, who is general manager for Windows. He was speaking in an interview with The Verge, picked up by VideoGamer. “We obviously have Exchange and Outlook that people use at work,” he added.
“We just decided it was time to do something new and to bring the best from each of those and put them together and release it right in time for the new wave of products that we could have coming out with Windows 8, with the new version of Office, with the new Windows phone, and the new Xbox.”
A cursory reference, for sure, but it’s there. Also sounds a bit like it could be running Windows 8…
