The Official Xbox Magazine has reported that the next special edition release of the Xbox will come along side Halo 4. This is little more than speculation still, but it is from the OFFICIAL Xbox Magazine, so one would assume it is somewhat, I don’t know, OFFICIAL.
Either way, if it turns out to be true, it would more than likely squelch any rumors of a new Xbox dropping next year. Seems there would be no point in dropping a new system after launching a special edition version of your console with your company’s biggest exclusive game. Then again, it is a money hungry company that doesn’t care about anything else but its bottom line so…there’s that.
