According to Microsoft, they are not going to be announcing or releasing the newest Xbox, sometimes referred to as Xbox Next, 720, etc.. It isn’t a huge surprise to many, as the Xbox 360’s sales are still seeing record high numbers. Hopefully, they are still in the works on finalizing the hardware spec’s, so when it finally does see the light of day, we aren’t stuck on an i5 and AMD 6000 series GPU in the days of 9000 series and the CPU past Ivy Bridge.
“While we appreciate all the interest in our long-range plans for the future, we can confirm that there will be no talk of new Xbox hardware at E3 or anytime soon,” Microsoft’s Corporate Communications boss Frank Shaw told AllThingsD. “For us, 2012 is all about Xbox 360.”
