The internal rumors are that yes, MS will release info about the next Xbox at E3 this year (2013). It's not a guarantee, but generally most internal rumors have much more truth to them than anything I read online.

Sony doing it I could believe, but Microsoft has no interest in becoming a TV manufacturer. What I could see from Microsoft is an Xbox console that is designed around media (tv/movies/music/Kinect/social ) and less about games, sort of like the Xbox Arcade (lacking a harddrive).

Ok, having worked at Xbox Live (on Microsoft campus) for 2+ years, I can tell you that this whole article is junk.

First of all, I do not believe for one second that the guy has insider information on both console companies. Even if he had information from just 1 console company, he's facing some serious legal issues.

Granted, it seems his speech is really all about guessing and whatnot.

The rumors within Microsoft's own IEB divi...

Please explain how they 'have lost a lot of steam', considering they are the best selling console in the U.S. for the past 2 years. I think they have plenty of steam left.

This will not happen with the next gen. I guarantee it.

Sony took that money and spent it on games, while Microsoft took that money and spent it on better infrastructure, security, expanding the capabilities of the Xbox 360, and even turned a profit.

Meanwhile, Sony got hacked, continues to have massive downtime during maintenance and is losing money every year.

My favorite is "Hey Ash Whatcha Playin".

It's made by a guy who does writing and other work for Borderlands 2 and also his sister who is the voice for Tiny Tina in the same game (her real name is Ashley).

I find it kind of odd that Black Ops 2 is the best selling game of all time, yet people think that Halo 4 is failing.

Let's look at some interesting facts. First we should remember that both Black Ops 2 and Halo 4 released six days apart.

Call of Duty Black Ops 2 was released on the Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and the PC. 3 gaming platforms. It sold $500 million the first 24 hours and 7.5 million copies the first month.

Halo 4 was only re...

And yet, you still reply to the blog post about the 'console wars'. You replied because it IS a hot topic, which is why this blog post was created!

If it matters to the customers (read: console owners) then it matters to the console creators as well.

This is a great blog, thank you.

One thing people leave out though, is the Xbox brand didn't exist until 2001, nearly 2 decades AFTER Nintendo created it's console brand. Also, the release of the Playstation (original) in 1994 gave Sony a 7 year head-start over the Xbox as well.

Consider the huge number of existing console gamers that already had ties to Nintendo/Sony, it makes Xbox's achievements even more impressive.

Xbox becam...
