Microsoft recently revealed that Xbox is part of the agenda for its Build conference in late June, where developers will likely learn about the company's next-generation plans. We understand that the next-generation Xbox software will be based on Windows 8, feeding into Microsoft's strategy of placing Windows at the heart of its products and services. With an Xbox event in late May, alongside E3 and Build in june, it's shaping up to be a busy summer for Xbox.
