Ballmer Clarifies His ’New’ Xbox 360 Comment
There was plenty of confusion yesterday Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer had reportedly announced the company’s plans to introduce a ’new’ Xbox 360 in 2010. Was he simply confused? Were his comments misinterpreted?
So rather than continue to speculate, we went straight to the man himself to help sort out this situation.
This afternoon, Steve Ballmer issued IGN the following statement:
"I confused the issue with my poorly chosen words. There is no news in my comments. Things are as reported after E3. Sorry," said Ballmer.
Apology accepted, Steve.
That helps clarify things immensely as Microsoft stated at E3 that the Xbox 360 is not even halfway through its lifecycle, which means we should have at least another four years until we see the next "X" (and likely longer) as the Xbox 360 was released in November 2005.
