Comment by Microsoft Manager Referred to Xbox Fall Update Not New Xbox – Outlook Coming to Xbox This Fall?August 8, 2012 4 Comments
Recently, Microsoft’s Brian Hall let slip that the ‘new Xbox’ would support new ‘outlook’. Thus creating buzz that finally Microsoft was talking about the next generation of Xbox. Now, Microsoft has cleared this up by explaining that Brian was talking about this falls Xbox 360 update instead of an actual new piece of hardware.
“The comments to The Verge were not understood in their intended context,” says a Microsoft spokesperson. “When Brian mentioned a ‘new wave of products,’ he was referring to the full lineup of products coming later this year from Microsoft, including Windows 8, Office, Windows Phone and of course our fall Xbox update which will bring a host of new consumer experiences like Xbox Music, Videos, Games on Windows 8 and Xbox SmartGlass.”
We all know that it is coming, especially with all the leaks’on the Xbox ’720′ . It is pretty annoying that Microsoft is holding out on all the information on it.
One cool piece of information that we get out of all this is the fact that it looks like Outlook will actually be coming to Xbox via the Fall Update later this year alongside IE.
