Microsoft will reveal its next-generation Xbox at an event on 21st May, multiple reports have suggested.
The console will launch in "early November", seasoned Microsoft analyst Paul Thurrot has revealed. These details have been independently backed up by The Verge.
Named just "Xbox", Microsoft's machine will be "expensive" and cost around $500 (roughly £326, although likely higher in the UK). A lower price $300 (£195) model will also be available with some form of subscription.
Not surprised about the always-on DRM, piracy on the Xbox was much more rampant than people seem to realize. Probably easier than the PC since you didn't have to crack anything and just burn the game to a disc. Flashing was as easy as plugging your 360 DVD drive into your PC.
