General manager of Microsoft’s Windows Live, Brian Hall, has came out of nowhere to state that Microsoft is planning to releade a new Xbox console. He was speaking on a Verge podcast of the recent Windows Live switch to Outlook.
And he said “We’ve operated Hotmail for about 16 years, we obviously have Exchange and Outlook that people use at work, and 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 have coming out with Windows 8, with the new version of Office, with the New Windows Phone and the new Xbox”.
1 minute and 20 seconds into the movie below is where he gives an explicit message. Microsoft have not yet commented on it as a whole, and an official announcement of the Xbox 360’s successor has not been made.
