Microsoft apologised for the comments of its employee about the speculated always online feature
Xbox 720 specs and release date rumours were fueled by a statement from an employee of Microsoft, who spoke about the speculated always online feature of the next-generation console from the firm. Microsoft apologised for his statement and stated that it was the opinion of one person and he was not the company’s spokesperson.
As Microsoft posted the apology, recent reports suggested that Xbox 720 will be revealed by the firm on May 21 along with a new variant of Xbox 360, which sells for $99. Paul Thurrott, a tech blogger has stated the details about the release of Microsoft’s next console, though they cannot be confirmed as the Windows manufacturing firm has been silent about its next console.
Thurrott has listed the pricing details of Xbox 720 and claims that the console might cost around $500. Talking about the announcement of the console, Paul said, “Originally, they were going to announce this thing in April 24, now they’re going to announce it May 21. We know there are events occurring this year where we’re going to learn more about Durango.”
Xbox 720 rumours have been circulating in the media since a long time taking the console wars to a new level. Microsoft has not released any details about the Xbox 720 console, hence there are many speculations flooding the gaming industry. Fans would be hoping for more official news rather than a heap of rumours.
As Microsoft apologised for the comments of its employee, the firm said, “We apologize for the inappropriate comments made by an employee on Twitter yesterday. This person is not a spokesperson for Microsoft and his personal views do not reflect the customer centric approach we take to our products or how we would communicate directly with our loyal consumers.”
The firm also added, “We are very sorry if this offended anyone, however we have not made any announcements about our product roadmap, and have no further comment on this matter.” With so many statements wandering, there seems a lot of confusion about Xbox 720.
