Next Xbox launch in June? Business mag hints at launch for Microsoft's next console

An Israeli business magazine says Microsoft will release its Xbox 360 successor in June, following the company's $11 million acquisition of file sharing service Pando.

Calcalist reports Microsoft is expected to use Pando -- a file transfer service that offers a means of distribution based cloud service for games, video and software content giants -- to combat Sony's PlayStation 4, which will have a strong digital focus and will allow players to play large games while they're still being downloaded.

The magazine also says Microsoft is expected to launch the next Xbox in June, despite not even having officially revealed an Xbox 360 successor yet.

A June release would mean the console would ship without many third-party games like FIFA, NBA 2K or the Call of Duty series, although last year's versions could launch with the hardware leading into the busy November period.

That does seem way too soon. There's usually a window of about a year, at least, between announcement and release of a console. Surely they'd be showing it off at E3, anyway.
Yeah... nahhhhh.
I doubt it but its slightly possible. The E3 they announced the Xbox 360 Slim it was released a couple of weeks later.

True. But new console is very different to a new model.
because Sony announced the release of PS4 at the end of this year, Microsoft is gonna rush the next console at the last minute, and lots of xbox fanboys will probably get similar problems like the red ring crap. it's like Microsoft is trying way too hard to beat the Playstation
maybe they'll fill it with last gen titles for their launch just like they did with the 360 :P


They could do what Sega did with the Saturn. Here's our next system and its available.......NOW! go buy it. :P
It'll be a disaster if they try and rush it out for June to beat the PS4. Hopefully the rumour is off and it's coming out in Nov or so.
Is not going to happen. No June release, sorry.
