Current and soon-to-be owners of Microsoft's video gaming system should be wary of a rumored 2013 launch of the next Xbox. Previous reports from Develop, a video game website, hinted that the Xbox 720, Microsoft’s next console, could arrive at the E3 gaming expo in June 2013.
Develop also noted that Microsoft is likely to focus more on the Xbox 360, Kinect and Windows phone for the next two holiday seasons before pushing the next console in 2013.
Cliff Blezsinzki, design director for Epic Games, gave his opinion on Microsoft's next system: "I'm sorry, do you think graphics are good enough? No, they're not! The Xbox 360 is great. We've pushed it further than we ever have with Gears of War 3, but I want Avatar in real-time and beyond. I want fully realistic CG, and are we there? Absolutely not. I think there's absolutely room for improvement."
