He has stated that the next-gen Xbox will be a Windows 8 console and will use Blu-Ray discs. It will be released in November. Speaking about the next-gen Xbox, Paul Thurrott states:
“Durango is going to be expensive; $500, $300 with a subscription – that kind of thing, Originally, they were going to announce this thing on April 24. Now they’re going to announce it on May 21. We know there are events occurring this year where we’re going to learn more about Durango. E3 is going to occur, Build is going to occur in San Francisco in June when they’re going to talk about the developer story – because it’s a Windows 8 device. It’s going to have the same, or basically the same, developer tools and developer APIs and all that kind of stuff.”
There has also been strong rumors that the next Xbox will require an always on internet connection which has caused much debate amongst people stating they are not keen on the idea that an internet connection will always be required.
