To all who have been speculating that the next-gen Xbox will be announced this year at E3… stop. Major Nelson has said via Twitter: “FYI: We don’t plan on discussing new #Xbox hardware at #E3 this year”.
That’s not to say that there won’t be a new console in 2013, it’s just that Microsoft plans to focus on the Xbox 360 this year – publicly at least.
In an article on Bloomsberg (referred to by Major Nelson in his tweet), David Dennis – a company spokesman – said via an email statement:
“There will be no talk of new Xbox hardware at E3 or anytime soon. For us, 2012 is all about Xbox 360.”
