Rumor: Xbox Console 3 Revealing At CES 2012 – Codenamed “TEN”

Lens of Truth posted today a series of interesting investigative rumor reports that hint to Microsoft revealing the next Xbox console at CES 2012. Albeit this is all just another breeze blowing through the rumor mill, the actual announcement is more  tangible than ever before.

CES 2012 was just named the most economic-impact trade show in the United States. Thousands attend it, companies flock to it, and reputation proceeds it. This would leave out all the naysayers when referring to location and timing; this sure makes it the right time and right place for Microsoft.

Lens of Truth didn’t spin the rumor into an out of control barrel roll and simply put, neither we will. We’ve posted up rumors before and nine times out of ten they turn out to be nothing more than just that. But it was interesting to see how LoT put things together which added even more underlining speculated evidence to the rumor.

Rumor: Next Xbox will be announced at CES 2012

Codenamed TEN, is all about Metro, embedded Silverlight and an Apple-like integration with Windows and Windows Phone.

They added, sourced MS blog via Kotaku

“I am now stating that 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.

It will be custom designed by Microsoft and two partners based on the ARM architecture. It will be cheaper than the 360, further enabling Kinect adoption. And it will be far smaller than the 360. It will also demonstrate how Windows Phone could possible implement Win9’s dev platform on the lower end.”

Will there be the next generation Xbox announcement? Or is this just more fuel to the fire? We’ll be first to let you know because we’re attending CES 2012!
