VGLeaks is reporting a bunch of interesting things about the new Xbox today. Below is the rundown of the most important things their source told them about Microsoft’s plans.
- The new Xbox won’t be “always online”. That rumor stems from the fact that Microsoft has an Apple TV style Xbox Mini based on the Xbox 360 architecture in the works.
- The new Xbox will be able to play used games according to VGLeaks’ source.
- The new Xbox will be able to play your Xbox 360 games but you’ll need some sort of add-on hardware. (Probably an optical disc with a built-in emulator.)
- The new Xbox will be the most indie-friendly console on the market.
If all of this is true, then Sony is in deep shit with the PS4.
