So I read this article the other day on TGDaily (over here as a matter of fact) about a Pizza company in Dubai called "Red Tomato Pizza" who have a fridge magnet you literally stick onto your fridge, push a button on it and DING DONG!? Is that Pizza at my front door!? Why YES IT IS!

It looks clear that there will be no new Xbox this year. Microsoft has also stated it will not have anything to talk about or show at E3 and it is now speculated that the next Xbox which is codenamed TEN may arrive sometime in 2013.

 

After being unveiled on MTV in 2005, the original Xbox 360 has grown to include additional hardware capabilities (such as integrated WiFi, HDMI and the inclusion of the new Kinect Sensor). Microsoft also went through an embarrassing (and costly) exercise to resolve the so-called "RROD" (Red Ring of Death) hardware failure to produce the current hardware version known as the Xbox 360 S (which has a new outer casing and more energy efficient internals). It's this version that Kinect debuted with.

Next Xbox to have no disc drive?

I read a rumour last night (and I don't put much stock in rumours, but that said it's always interesting much like gossip is) that the next Xbox may not have a disc drive of any sort.

One of the things that make me question this rumour is the fact that I doubt Microsoft would be so short-sighted as to cut off backwards compatibility with the Xbox 360 and the vast library of games they already have available. This would be very counter-productive indeed.
