Microsoft launch brand new Xbox news site, have they given the game away?

Today Microsoft have launched a brand new website dubbed Xbox Wire, which is set to be the home of all Xbox related news starting with coverage of the official reveal, however it seems that maybe Microsoft have given away more news than they had initially planned.

“Hello and welcome to Xbox Wire. It’s an exciting year for Xbox – we’re counting down the days until May 21, when a new generation of entertainment is revealed. Our team has been working incredibly hard and we have so much good news to share with you.

In preparation, we’re launching Xbox Wire – a news blog to help you keep up with the latest Xbox news. You will be able to follow our journey as we bring you the best in games and entertainment and along the way we’ll introduce you to the people, places and technology that bring it all to life.

You’ll see some familiar faces on Xbox Wire. Our executives will write blogs occasionally, but most of our blogs will be from everyday people on the Xbox team. Our own Major Nelson will appear as well – both via blog posts and through interviews – of course, Major’s fans can also continue to follow along with him at I’m lucky to spend my time at work living and breathing all things entertainment and I’m excited to serve as your editor here at Xbox Wire.”

This is all good news, however this isn’t what intrigued my sleuthing mind, it was in fact the new imagery for Xbox Wire which caught my eye. The official logo for Xbox Wire looks to have the name and logo for the next generation of Xbox hanging underneath, this may seem like a very tenuous clue but it fits nicely with the theory that Microsoft have taken a leaf out of major rival Apple’s book and gone with a simple refresh of the console name to Xbox, removing the need for numbers or buzz words beside it (I hope it doesn’t turn out to be Xbox Infinity or 720) and what better way to hide something, than in plain sight?

Check out the image below and let us know what you think. Will it be Infinity, 720, Durango or simply Xbox?



About Ben Rayner

If he's not saving the world from zombie hordes (yes he works in retail) Ben can found playing almost any game he can get his hands on! Hitman and Max Payne are his games of choice but don't let that fool you, he can hold his own in a game of C.O.D! He also likes Tea, Whiskey and short walks his Xbox! Say Hi! I love to talk!

    Probably something much worse… “Xbox Kinect”
