New reports have surfaced that indicate Microsoft is planning to unveil their next console, which is supposedly now just called “Xbox”, on 21 May. This reveal was originally rumoured to be happening at some point in April.
According to Microsoft analyst Paul Thurrot, the Xbox will ship in two price flavours: a $500 version and a $300 version that includes some sort of subscription model. Unfortunately, Thurrot has backed up the rumours of an always online Xbox console, stating that he has received documentation that discusses this requirement.
Anyone else finding it disconcerting that each new next Xbox rumour also serves to reiterate this “always online” aspect?
