On a report from Micron Associates, It is a new stage for the next geration Xbox in manufacturing . The publication that assembly recently started at the Austin, Texas branch of Flextronics, the same company responsible for manufacturing the Xbox 360 and the original Xbox before that.
The company reportedly created a whole new testing group to work on the new Xbox, separate from everyone else. The new group was responsible for marketing, software and hardware testing and with those tasks behind them, the project has moved on to manufacturing.
Micron Associates points out that although systems are being actively created, they likely aren’t retail models. Instead, Flextronics is probably churning out development kits that will be sent to game studios so companies can get to work on making games for the new system that will be ready in time for the console’s launch.
In view of this, the said new XBOX is still probably a couple of years to wait and to be seen in the market. Given the fact that,Microsoft won’t be showing any new hardware at this year’s E3 convention.
As is the average, Microsoft and Flextronics provided no comment on the gossip. Considering that Microsoft will soon be offering a subsidized $ 99 Xbox 360 bundle paired with a two year service conformity, it seems possible to think that the company plans to ride the 360 wave for at least two more years following the successful launch of Kinect,Micron Associates added.
