Yesterday Microsoft effectively confirmed that a new Xbox was coming. They said it themselves, or rather, Brian Hall, General Manager for Windows did.
Tonight though, the official line has rolled out and it appears we all made a very silly mistake.
“The comments to The Verge were not understood in their intended context,” says the statement. “When Brian mentioned a ‘new wave of products,’ he was referring to the full lineup of products coming later this year from Microsoft, including Windows 8, Office, Windows Phone and of course our fall Xbox update which will bring a host of new consumer experiences like Xbox Music, Videos, Games on Windows 8 and Xbox SmartGlass.”
Of course – it’s pretty obvious now, and yes – we do feel a bit silly for misinterpreting the quote.
We’ll just leave this video here. Skip to about 1:40.
Do you feel silly too?
