Next Xbox tipped for January reveal

As sure as the sun rises, another day has arrived and with it another rumour regarding the successor to Xbox 360.

This time it’s the turn of French site Xboxygen (as spotted by VG247) which claims to have word that the new console will be unveiled at the next CES Expo which kicks off on January 10th.

The course, which it goes without saying is very close” to Microsoft, says the machine will have a hex-core CPU, and AMD GPU and 2GB of DDR3 RAM.

Furthermore, a division called Loop is supposedly handling software development with team Infinity developing the hardware.

The claims are at odds with the confirmation yesterday that Halo 4, which is due out in late 2012, will be an Xbox 360 game. Would Microsoft wish to announce a new console in January if it intends to ship a triple-A Halo title some eight or nine months later?
