After almost 6 years the Xbox 360 is stronger than ever. The start was rocky but now with the Kinect & a slimmer, more improved console, things are looking up for Microsoft.
However, even with all this glory.. Microsoft behind the scenes are working on the Xbox 360's successor. The new console is on desks at an unnamed Electronic Arts (EA Games) studio. The new hardware was sent to EA last month and is a very early build. It features no final casing and is just the hardware being stored inside of a PC case. Developers at EA are getting to grips with the new system so that they can create games in time for it's release.
It is common for a new console to arrive to developers inside of a PC case. This will also help hold off any leaks before E3 this June. Nintendo are slated to announce their new flagship console at E3 but will Microsoft top that with the new Xbox?
Stay tuned for more news on the possibility of the 'Xbox 720' when more information is available.
