And its on reads the ultra-austere post, followed by a simple Flash-based timer titled Counting down to E3 2013 (cribbed fromsite).
O rly? as a certain memetic predator might say.
I wont speculate past the probability of the new console itself everything Ive noticed about specs and pricing amounts to echo chamber gossip. If youd rather just goof around, hop on over to NeoGAF, where gamers go mostly to make fun of each other (and everything between), and youll findfull of cracks, quips, the usual goofy/creepy animated GIFs and occasional chants of Lets go, Durango (Durango is supposedly what the next Xboxs development kits are codenamed).
Could the countdown be to anythingbut the next Xbox? At this point, much as Id like to see Microsoft wait another year or two before introducing new hardware to give developers more time to do amazing things with the Xbox 360s more than competent internals, and as gimmicky as countdowns are, this ones punchline feels inexorable.
Besides, imagine the disappointment in five months if it turned out to be simply a new franchise, the nextHalo or heaven forbid, a standalone Kinect 2.
