Rumor: Xbox 720 to Launch in June 2013?

Microsoft is moving forward with its preparations for the revealing of its Next Xbox console (the rumored "Durango" console), but could we be seeing it sooner rather than later? Maybe.

Microsoft has purchased a torrent application under the name Pando for around $11 million. But with news of the acquisition, as reported by PixelEnemy, there came some more details that have made things rather interesting...

"Fendo developed a file transfer service between P2P users, and made it the means of distribution based cloud service for games, video and software content giants, while active large file transfer service for consumers and businesses. The purchase was made in part to give Microsoft an advantage in sharing media files for the launch of the new Xbox gaming console is expected in June, and to compete with Sony, who revealed last month its future media console PlayStation 4."

In case you missed the words of focus above, they’re "launch of the new Xbox gaming console is expected in June." Could Microsoft be planning an early launch for the system? It would be the first "surprise" launch during E3 time since Sega launched the Sega Saturn way back in the 90’s...though that eventually tanked due to a lack of games that followed over the next few months.

No word yet from Microsoft, but we’ll let you know what’s happening soon enough...
