Another analyst speculates on Xbox Next Cowan & Company analyst Doug Creutz has weighed on the upcoming next-generation Xbox.
The analyst says he believes the console, codenamed Durango, will not launch until the fall of next year, and will include physical discs.

Many other analysts have speculated that the console will do away with physical game media and move to a digital-only platform.

Says Creutz's research note (CVG): "Although not yet confirmed by Microsoft, we believe the next generation Xbox console could launch in the fall of 2013. We believe a digital-only next-gen Xbox is unlikely given risks to both Microsoft's market share and the gaming ecosystem as a whole from any attempt to kill used games.

"However, we do believe that Microsoft may be targeting a cheaper physical solution in an effort to get the initial price of the box down and speed up new console adoption, which would be bullish for software publishers."


Microsoft recently noted that there will be no talk of the upcoming Xbox at this year's E3 or "anytime soon."

I'm just wondering, do you sell your old units? I still have my Coleco vision, atari 5200, and genesis from back in the day. I pull them out once in a while to enjoy the old school games. Still love Donkey Kong and Turbo on Coleco. Altered beast on genesis.

I still have an Atari 520st and Atari 2600 with a bunch of cartridges.My son had a Coleco also but sold it. Best Electronics has a good assortment of parts for Atari computers and consoles if you need anything.I bought myself a copy of their catalog.They can keep all this new stuff I enjoy playing them more.
