A successor for the Xbox 360 console has long been rumoured to be earmarked for arrival in late 2013 however, Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft Studios, has taken no hesitation in denying these interesting ongoing claims.
He said “Right now the Xbox 360 is really healthy and it’s doing incredibly well. I think the 360 has a lot more than two years [left]. It has legs for a long time. Microsoft entered this space with the original Xbox 11 years ago, and we’re committed for the long-term,” he added. “The nice thing about the Xbox 360 right now is we’re the number one console globally. We’re able to bring in new content and still support the best of the core games”.
Then he added “It’s a platform that has really reached scale; this is the time when you really see the great content showing up”.
As you may already know, sales of the Xbox 360 are still maintaining its strong records, and continuing to be a force in the gaming market. It certainly wouldn’t be surprising to see it staying that way for the foreseeable future.
