Microsoft has been facing serious challenges from Sony in its battle for console dominance. Although it is difficult to determine the winner even after the release of Xbox One and PS4, Microsoft is already developing a new hardware for Xbox as we speak.
While Sony has already teased its console fans with the rumor of an upgraded PS4 a.k.a “Neo”, Microsoft is well ahead in the race and will be announcing its new development in E3. Over the years, Xbox has always been laid back in competing with Play station hardware components, this announcement could help its console pose a challenge to Sony.
The news on the announcement was confirmed after a report published on Paul Thurrot’s blog by Microsoft blogger Brad Sams, confirming that the tech company will be revealing a new Xbox hardware at E3, along with a new standard controller for Xbox One.
“The company also has something else up its sleeve that I still don’t have all the details on but it’s a much bigger deal than an updated standard controller. While the rumors of a PS4K have been running rampant, and I don’t know yet if this new device is set to take on that console, they will have another, much larger hardware related announcement, at E3 this year. I had previously heard that they were working on a new Elite console, they recently announced an Elite bundle, but I am not sure if this is an update to that product or something brand new,” said Sam.
A recent report also confirmed that a next generation of Xbox one is already in production. The real question arises if Microsoft will indeed give the fans a ‘release date announcement’ or disappoint them that it’s still in development. But, Microsoft might be forced to give the fans something if Sony decides to release Neo this fall.
