According to the latest rumors spread online by Asian sources, Microsoft began active work on a new generation of gaming console Xbox. The presentation of the device will take place towards the end of this year, while it will go on sale no earlier than the second half of the next year.
The new model has already received the conditional unofficial name Xbox 720.
The company seems to have decided not to rush. That is, its behavior is completely different from the policy pursued earlier when creating the Xbox 360. Then the company, in an effort to overtake competitors, introduced a clearly crude model to the market, with many flaws and frequent cases of marriage. The calculation worked - many users preferred this particular console, since the number of games was the decisive factor for them. However, this tactic will not work the second time around. Besides, it doesn't make sense, for sure. Microsoft will be able to competently ensure backward compatibility (the ability to run games for the old one on the new console). That is, by buying an Xbox 720, a gamer will be able to pass the wait for new products by playing old games.
Herself Microsoft such rumors are simply ignored. It is understandable - after all, if it becomes known about the imminent emergence of a new generation of consoles, sales of the Xbox 360 will simply come to naught. However, the fact that work on the Xbox 720 is still underway is beyond doubt.
