Microsoft Says When It Said 'New Xbox', It Didn't Really Mean New Xbox

Last week on a podcast, Microsoft's Brian Hall mentioned "the new Xbox" while discussing products that his company will be releasing in the near future. But Microsoft now says he wasn't actually talking about the new Xbox.

Up until now, Microsoft has refused to confirm what we all know: there's an Xbox 360 successor en route. Their main people have dodged a lot of questions about it. So it was interesting to hear Hall talk about it so casually.

But speaking to The Verge, a Microsoft representative said Hall was actually referring to an Xbox update.

"When Brian mentioned a ‘new wave of products,' he was referring to the full lineup of products coming later this year from Microsoft, including Windows 8, Office, Windows Phone and of course our fall Xbox update which will bring a host of new consumer experiences like Xbox Music, Videos, Games on Windows 8 and Xbox SmartGlass," the spokesperson said.

Guess Microsoft isn't quite ready to admit that they're making a new Xbox. Maybe because they want you to buy the one that's in stores now.
