Microsoft France’s marketing director Cedrick Delmas has stated in an interview with Lepoint.fr that the Xbox 720 will not be released this year, using the lack of an Xbox 360 price cut as proof.
There have already been a few rumours surrounding this year’s E3 where we expect the Xbox 720 to be announced, including its six times greater performance over the Xbox 360 and Kinect 2 and Blu-ray functionality.
With Sony confirming that the PlayStation 4 will not be making an appearance at this year’s E3 and an expected 2013 release date for the Xbox 720, it looks like Nintendo will be flying the next-gen flag solo, for 2012 at least.
