When questioned by a reader why Arthur Gies believes that Halo 4 would be announced for Microsoft's next console rather than the Xbox 360, Gies responded, "Because that would be the most beautiful, system launching stroke they could possibly make next Christmas, is to attach Halo to it. And also, that would completely separate talk of Halo and how much it sells versus Call of Duty and any sort of discussion."

Even though Halo 4 was tagged an Xbox 360 game officially, Gies added that they "heard enough at E3 to not be so sure about that." He insisted that it was becoming "totally obvious" that they would be releasing a new system in November 2012.

He cited a new rumor from this past week from inside Microsoft devices devision that Microsoft would announce the new console at next E3. He commented, "I don't understand why people keep doing this, thinking, 'They're going to announce it at E3 2012 and release it in Christmas 2013!' But that's not what Microsoft does. They announce their shit and then release it that year."

He concluded, "So yeah, we're going to have a new Xbox next year and have a new Halo with it," and added, "I don't mind being wrong, but I'm going to enjoy being right in announcing this system next year."

I would like a new xbox to be released. It means higher quality graphics for games on the PC as well.
