Microsoft dismisses rumours of revised Xbox 360 hardware

Microsoft's Chris Satchell has dismissed rumours of revised Xbox 360 hardware sporting an HDMI port and a high-capacity hard disk, even claiming that photographs rustled up by our old friend Internet Reports mean very little. "At the moment, everything you might have seen is just looking at our experimentation back in Redmond, not really a product that we're thinking about announcing," Satchell - head of Microsoft's game developer group - told GameSpot.

The Microsoft man was also cool on the prospect of a standalone hard disk upgrade to one of the mooted higher capacities (60, 100 and 120GB devices have been "seen" in the wild): "As we produce these services, if we see an increase in pressure that's something that will be interesting to look at, but there isn't any announcement today about any new configuration that may or may not be happening," he added.

The thing is you can't always believe stuff that you hear as "rumors" around the internet, so the guy is most likely telling the truth and what was shown was just something from the labs over at Redmond testing out possibilities of what could be added to the console and not actually what is going to happen any time soon.

As for me, I'm happy for the 8th gen console.

Yeah, we all know how Microsoft is. I love my 360 to death but I know MS is full of it sometimes. 2 months from now, guess what the news will read

Well that just settles it, doesn't it!
