Microsoft to launch Xbox Lite in 2013 and Xbox 720 later
A few weeks back a Microsoft spokesperson have claimed that Microsoft will release the Xbox 360 successor next year and there may be no disk drive present on this console.Anyway, today we have got reports that Microsoft will release Xbox ‘Lite’ in 2013 and till now, it’s not sure whether Microsoft will release Xbox 720 in 2013 or not.
According to a Reddit user:
[quote type="large" align="left"]My understanding is that we’ll see a Xbox device in late 2013 which does Arcade-style games & all the current & future media apps with Kinect (with near-mode). It will be an ARM-based platform price-competitive with the Apple TV (if you own a Kinect already).At some point after that, we’ll see a Xbox Next, a true successor to the 360. Details about it are very hazy, except that, like the 360, it will do games for core-audiences & the same media apps as the other device, also with Kinect.Somewhat later, Kinect itself will likely receive a camera update for the video camera first. Around 2015-ish I expect a generational update, to add a better depth camera, processor & inter-connect.[/quote]
It’s strange to hear that this year Kinect will receive a camera update, if it’s true we can say that this update will be released after 2014.Anyway, for now that’s all, we hope that soon Microsoft will provide some official details about their plans about Xbox ‘Lite’ or Xbox 360 successor.
