Another rumor claims new Xbox at E3 2012

Numerous “reports” have pinned Microsoft revealing a new Xbox at E3 next year already. As if those rumors weren’t enough, here comes another one which, at the end of the day, is revealing about as much as a bikini model in the middle of a snowstorm.

According to a source “knowledge of Microsoft’s plans,” Microsoft is supposedly prepping its next-generation console — and has been doing so since 2006, apparently — for an E3 2012 debut. Whether or not the console will actually launch next year is another matter entirely given that the same source is “not aware” of such plans.

We’re not sure rumors like these do any good, especially since Microsoft has already implied that the Xbox 360 has, still, a long and good life ahead of it.
