Introducing the latest and greatest Microsoft product: XBOX... Mini.
Xbox Mini release date, news and rumours | News | TechRadar
The new Xbox has not been officially announced by Microsoft yet, but we're expecting an announcement in May.
But latest rumours suggest that the new Xbox will be joined in the cabinet by a little brother - the Xbox Mini.
Sources close to Microsoft told The Verge that Xbox Mini will be based on Windows 8 with a focus on casual games and entertainment services.
Exact hardware specs were not revealed, and may not be finalised, but the set-top box is said to put an emphasis on accessibility with fast boot times and always-on functionality for instant access to content.
Though not mentioned in the initial rumor, the always-on feature sounds remarkably similar to the cloud-based TV platform Microsoft is developing.
