On the eve of Larry Grib, better known as Major Nelson, made a loud statement that surprised many: at the Gamescom on August 21, Microsoft will introduce a new “iron” for the Xbox. “New hardware and accessories,”Major Nelson said. A few hours later the situation began to change rapidly, and the “iron” turned almost into a “pumpkin”.
The blog entry has changed and now it sounds like: “Microsoft will show new bands and accessories.” So the next generation Xbox wait this year is hardly possible.
Rather, there are high chances to see the next upgrade of the console, but the new generation will be released, according to the current state of things, somewhere in the year 2020. Therefore, it may be premature to show a new “iron”.
