GameZone discusses the OXM reveal of the upcoming Halo 4 XBox 360 Console, and how it may indicate that the successor to the 360 may not be as near as some people think:
“If the crystal ball is correct, this could debunk any rumors we’ve previously heard about the Xbox 720 – as far as release date is concerned. This doesn’t exactly mean Microsoft still won’t make some form of announcement at CES 2012 or E3 2012, but as far as an actual release date for a new console, it doesn’t look like we’ll see a new one any time soon – or at least in 2012. My guess is maybe the 2013 holiday season at the earliest, possibly pushing into 2014.
Given the popularity of the Halo franchise on Xbox, it’s easy to see why they would release a custom-themed limited edition Xbox 360 around the game. Unfortunately, this also means they won’t release a competing next-gen Xbox around that time. It would make no sense for Microsoft to release a special edition 360 anytime near the launch of the next Xbox.”
