Xbox TV device reportedly due in 2013

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Nicholas Greene  

According to "multiple sources familiar with Redmond's plans," Microsoft is currently in the process of building an Xbox TV box, due for completion in 2013. At least, that's what Tom Warren of The Verge says is transpiring. You've always gotta be careful with stories like this; I've lost count of the number of times an 'unnamed industry source' or two turned out to be completely bogus. 

Still, it's a lot more believable than some of the rumors we've been hearing, particularly since Microsoft would potentially want to compete with Apple TV and Roku, among others. 

Xbox TV Device Supposedly Due in 2013

Once again, according to these sources, Microsoft's set-top box is just one arm of a broad effort to ensure that the core architecture for its next-gen console is highly scalable and able to run on a wide array of devices. 

The Verge managed to get a statement from Microsoft, but it doesn't exactly tell us much of anything. In fact, it is the company line we've heard time and again when the company's presented with loose talk: 

"Xbox 360 has found new ways to extend the console lifecycle by introducing controller-free experiences with Kinect and re-inventing the console with a new dashboard and new entertainment content partnerships. We are always thinking about what is next for our playform and how to continue to defy the lifecycle convention."

Well, okay then. Looks like we're going to have to wait until 2013 to see if this one checks out.
