Rumor Mill: Could Windows 8 Support Make It In The Xbox 720?
A report from VG24/7 suggests that Brian Hall let slip a bit of information during an interview with The Verge about the next Xbox and Windows 8. The video above has the interview but here is the quote in question:
“We’ve had Hotmail and operated Hotmail for about 16 years, we obviously have Exchange, and Outlook, that people use at work. We just decided it was time to do something new and bring the best from each of those and put them together and release it right in time for the new wave of products that we could have coming out with Windows 8, with the new version of Office with the new Windows phone and the new Xbox.”
After reading over this a few times, it doesn’t seem like a slip up at all. I believe he’s simply saying that they are preparing for the wave of new stuff coming out with Windows 8 and other platforms. However, this quote could also (like it already has) interpret as them possibly using Windows 8 on the next Xbox console.
