Xbox 720 Spring 2014 Launch Date According to Analysts

Microsoft‘s next gen console, dubbed the “Xbox 720” or “Durango” for now, will skip the 2013 holiday season and launch early 2014 according to video game analyst Michael Pachter.

It would “Make more sense” to skip the 2013 holiday buying season completely, according to Pachter. Which I’m not so sure about. Way back when the Xbox 360 released, Sony waited for a bit to release their PlayStation 3 system. Sony struggled for sales for a few years until recently their sales have picked up due to the price drop. Granted, their system was priced at $599.99, but we’ll see what happens.

Not only that, but Pachter believes that the new Xbox will be focused on complete home entertainment. It will serve as the hub for gaming, music, and T.V.” Microsoft intends to allow the Xbox 720 to function as a cable TV box, allowing cable television service providers to broadcast over the Internet through the box, with SmartGlass as the remote controller, and with the Xbox 720 using Windows 8 to split the TV signal into multiple feeds, allowing consumers to divert different channel feeds to different displays within the home.” said Pachter.

What do you think? Should Microsoft focus a bit more on gaming as opposed to being an all around entertainment hub for the Xbox 720?
