Microsoft: No new Xbox 360 in 2009

Posted on Thursday, May 15 2008 @ 02:01 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
There was a rumour yesterday that Microsoft may be planning to release a slimmer Xbox 360 console next year but a Microsoft representative told Engadget that this is a hoax:
Specifying the release of "slimmed down SKU in 2009", Microsoft representative let us know today that "While we don't normally comment on rumors like this, we can tell you that we have no plans to release a new console in 2009". Yep, rumor assassinated, just like that. Of course, there still exists the possibility that Microsoft's just playing coy to prevent a little bit of Osborne effect from creeping in during their heated battle with the PS3 -- but they did go out of their way to directly comment on the rumor, so take it as you will.
