Did Dick let the cat out of the bag? Is there a new Microsoft console?

No not that Dick

Famed Australian retailer, Dick Smith, has possible leaked an early E3 surprise with the reveal of an exciting new console coming from Microsoft this year.

The pre-order page currently has very little information besides the fact that it will be an exciting new console and the current placeholder price is set to $999. There are a few options that this could be. Firstly it could be a brand new console and Microsoft is going to rock the gaming industry to its core by dropping the Xbox One as their lead console after only 1 year.

The chance of this happening is around 0%. The other option is that Microsoft will refresh the Xbox 360 again – but it’s unlikely.  The current design was released at E3 last and looks a lot like the Xbox One.

The last, and most likely option is that this new console is simply a different version of the Xbox One, maybe a different colour, larger hard drive or the rumoured disc-less option.

The Xbox One has always been targeted at individuals with great Internet connections but half the planet is still stuck in the past with low speed connections and the Xbox 360 can continue to serve their needs for a good few years.

Good old Dick Smith have also listed two exciting new games for the Xbox One and PS4 which are to be released in September. I’d eat a proverbial hat if these aren’t Grand Theft Auto V for the current consoles.

          Finished Bioshock Infinite yesterday, man I enjoyed it so much. I’d recommend the Burial at Sea DLC as well. First episode is shortish & okay, but the second one nails it. Dem feels.

            Just do yourself a favour and play on Hard or 1999 mode. Infinite is shockingly easy… easier than the first Bioshock… Still great though….

        All their commercials have rocked so far. I flew a little bit on Fri night. Spent about 20 minutes just flying around some asteroids, just felt right & boss-like. And damn, it looks pretty even at this early stage.

    Its Australia, they are probably getting the XBOX360 after the board of arts and entertainment spent 7 years deliberating on the maturity level of the console. It just got the pass with a 16+ age restriction because anyone over 18 in Australia is not allowed to make their own decisions besides what brand of XXXX to drink 😛

      This is in no way a dig at Xbox, but I’m just not feeling Sunset Overdrive. It looks fun enough but I’m getting Dead Rising feels from it which aren’t doing much for me. Glad to see X1 getting some good exclusives though.

        I’m very much looking forward to SO! This has the potential to become a huge new IP! My only concern is the game play. If it’s not fluid and fun this will be a huge flop! Holding thumbs they got it right though as everything else about the game looks amazing!

    If they release another version of the XBoxOne that is superior then there are going to be a lot of angry early adopters.

    For $999 it better be better than that 😉
