(RUMOR) - Next Xbox Could Come in Fall 2005

The next version of Microsoft Corp.’s (MSFT.O: Quote, Profile, Research) Xbox video game console could be released in the fall of 2005, without the hard drive that was one of the defining characteristics of the current game console, the San Jose Mercury News reported on Monday. The paper, citing information it said had been shared with game developers and publishers, said the console would use three International Business Machines Corp. (IBM.N: Quote, Profile, Research) processors based on the new generation of powerful 64-bit computing technology and a graphics chip from ATI Technologies Inc. (ATY.TO: Quote, Profile, Research) The newspaper also reported that the new console would likely be shipped without a hard drive and said it was not "guaranteed" that the new console would be able to play current Xbox games. By eliminating the hard drive, Microsoft could reduce the cost of production while allowing game data to be stored on flash memory, the newspaper said. A Microsoft spokeswoman was not immediately available to comment on the report.
