To be fair, there is no actual confirmation on that matter because it seems Microsoft wants to keep under as to how the development of their next generation console has progressed. But, if you take account of how much times the current console has enjoyed, we can only expect that to be released in 2 or 3 years time. And it seems one established gaming magazine has agreed.
“Xbox 360 successor widely accepted to be released in 2014″ as quoted from their latest article on the downfall of Xbox 360 in Japan.
So, there you have it, if Xbox 720 is indeed coming in 2014, we might as well getting ourselves a new peripheral rather than Kinect. I mean, the technology is good, but we know that it’s still unfinished and needs to be polished. Maybe we will see Kinect 2 too?
As of June 3, this year, there are over 55 million Xbox 360 consoles worldwide.
