The rumour is once again in full swing, with reports claiming that we may see a brand new Xbox One by the end of this year, and at a cheaper price tag. That is, according to a "well-respected source" by veteran reporter Matt Martin at VG247
, who claims that Microsoft had been briefing publishing partners.
The source was not able to confirm whether this new model would be the same rumoured 1TB Xbox One console that was recently spilled on the NeoGAF forums yesterday, nor as to whether it is the same white Xbox One rumoured to be coming out in October. The NeoGAF leaker also mentioned that Microsoft are looking into providing a disc-less console, though that one is a tad harder to believe.
Of course as with the Internet, there can't just be one rumour. Other hints include a Halo 2: Anniversary Edition for Xbox One, and the Halo 5 beta arriving in November, plus a Crackdown 3 being in development. All these are thanks again to the NeoGAF user, who was apparently verified by the forum's admins to be legitimate, though who knows when it comes to the Internet.
