It’s not too often that you have the ability in journalism to have friends in high places that are willing to share information from other companies in regards to something that has been kept as tight lipped as the next Xbox. What I was able to come in contact with, from an unnamed close acquaintance that for obvious reasons has asked for anonymity, is somewhat unprecedented in today’s day and age. In a document that was sent to many high-ranking executives for different retail outlets outlines the newest, what seems to be called simply Xbox, displays that everyone will be able to enjoy free a free Xbox Live subscription with the purchase of a new console.
We have the pictures from the executive information release displaying both the prototype packet within the newest Xbox, which has all of your typical information like licensing, terms of service, owner’s manual, health and safety info, but the last piece that seemed rather interesting was the fact that there is a card containing a one time use code for a free Xbox Live account for new purchases of the next generation console.
We have reached out to Microsoft for further conformation but have yet to receive anything
This lends some creditability to the thought that the next Xbox will not have DRM features on it after all, but instead offer a paid subscription to those that choose to buy the console used.
Those that do buy it new will enjoy the fact that the free Xbox Live subscription is provided free for those that fell for this April Fool’s Day Joke. 🙂 Your Welcome courtesy of Microsoft and CineKatz!
