Rumor: Microsoft to unveil next Xbox in spring

Microsoft apparently aware of Sony's launch.

While Sony is planning to reveal its next-generation PlayStation later this month, Microsoft won’t reveal its next-generation Xbox until spring, according to Polygon “sources familiar with the Microsoft console.” 

“Microsoft, while already aware of Sony’s launch timing, plans to hold its own announcement this spring, months after Sony’s unveiling,” said the website. “A variety of form-factors for Microsoft’s new console, we’re told, are already being focus tested.”

Previous rumors have suggested the next Xbox, code-named Durango, will run on an x64 8-core CPU and have 8 gigabytes of DDR3 RAM.
