On a recent call with The Vergcast, Brian Hall, a General Manager in Windows, mentioned a “new Xbox” while listing some of Microsoft’s new products and releases. The call was focused on the new Outlook and how it will live on forthcoming devices.
“We just decided it was time to do something new and bring the best from each of those and put them together and release it right in time for the new wave of products that we could have coming out with Windows 8, with the new version of Office, with the new Windows Phone and the new Xbox.”
- Brian Hall
Most us have known about this mysterious next generation Xbox, code named “Durango” or “XBox 720″. However, now we have a somewhat more legitimate confirmation of the device.
Call it a slip of the tongue or possibly a staged leak but I doubt someone close to the subject would accidentally let this one out.
Check out the episode below. I really enjoyed the conversation they have about email and communication.
