Oh, the rumor-mill is alive and kicking this morning. With E3 kicking off one week from today it was to be expected that news sources would be reporting on all the hypotheticals to tide us over. So it is time to take stock and look at what we actually know before we get all excited and start reserving our place in the line outside Gamestop.
Xbox 720 – Codename: Durango
If rumors from Kotaku are true, the next Xbox will not feature or have any announcements from Microsoft at E3. Where most companies would jump in and use the event to generate buzz, Microsoft actually avoided E3 with the 360 announcement as well, instead opting for a special show on MTV a few weeks prior to the expo in 2005. So, while we can rule out hearing any news over the next few weeks – don’t think that we have to wait until E3 next year before we garner anything. In fact, we already have some juicy details that provide a foundation of what we can expect.
