Microsoft’s Brian Hall made reference to a “new Xbox” during a recent interview with The Verge.
Talking about the company’s web-based email service, Outlook, the Windows Live general manager said the new console would be launched as part of a whole host of other products.
“We’ve had Hotmail and operated Hotmail for about 16 years. We obviously have Exchange, and Outlook, that people use at work,” Hall said. “We just decided it was time to do something new and 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.”
Although Hall may be referencing the much-rumoured “Durango” – which has been revealed in a series of leaks in recent months – he may also be referencing an unannounced iteration of existing Xbox 360 hardware.
