Smaller & Cheaper Xbox? | Rumour

The actual Xbox may not look anything like this

As people line up to purchase the next Call of Duty Modern Warfare game, Microsoft have revealed there could be a new Xbox on the horizon. The new iteration of it's gaming console is rumored to be running a version of Windows 9 core software and a ARM processor.

The rumor comes from a user named MSNerd who has correctly leaked previous rumors (which is why they have gained credibility), goes on to say :

the Xbox codename ‘loop’ (the erstwhile XboxTV) will indeed debut a modified Win9 core. It will use a Zune HD-like hardware platform—a  ‘main’ processor with multiple dedicated assistive cores for graphics, AI, physics, sound, networking, encryption and sensors.

The rumor will enable the new Xbox to be cheaper and could lead to a larger uptake of the Kinect.
