There have been no shortage of rumors on the Next Xbox, but Microsoft has been denying them all, like any company would. Microsoft has already denied reports of a new Xbox this year, but some speculated there was still the possibility of revealing the next console this year. Well, Microsoft has clarified the rumors yet again, by saying there will be no new Xbox shown at E3 2012. In fact, the folks in Redmond have no intention of unveiling anything about the Next Xbox until 2013 at the earliest, with E3 2013 being a possibility. Either way you look at it, Microsoft is going to stick with the Xbox 360 for at least another year, especially after experiencing its best year of sales last year. The Kinect sensor has certainly helped in that regard, but whether or not Microsoft focuses almost exclusively on that at E3 this year will have to wait a few more months.
